Beauty Favourites: May 2017

Beauty Favourites: May 2017

There’s rather a summery theme to this month’s beauty favourites; it feels a little early in the year to be cracking out the sunscreens and the beachy scents but we’ve had a run of hot days and so I’ve been in all-out floaty dress and flip-flop mode.

Talking of beachy scents, for the past few weeks I’ve been coating myself from head to toe in something called Bum Bum Cream. It’s not what you’d imagine – though from my recent post titles (sex in a lay-by, dad wrote a porno, overactive tits, etc) I would forgive you for thinking it was something naughty. It smells like cake, sun lotion and a hint of aftershave. Which makes it sound gross, but it’s strangely addictive. It’s like a sexed-up version of Laura Mercier’s Creme de Pistache body cream and has a similar luxury price-tag, but the Bum Bum contains guarana, which is apparently a really powerful form of caffeine and so helps with circulation and toning in the – er – bum bum region. Because who doesn’t want hyperactive and jittery arse cheeks?

So, May favourites: SPFs, sexy scents, a cooling facial spray and a few choice makeup items. Randomly, this favourites also features raspberry liquorice – I was chomping my way through a bag of it whilst filming, so it seemed rude not to give it some recognition. It’s my current sugary poison and it’s how I’ve been fuelling my poor, nutrient-deficient body when I can’t (be bothered to) get to the kitchen. I really need to have some sort of dietary shake-up but am seriously lacking in motivation – some days are excellent, with superfoods and nuts and vegetables galore, others see me eat pastries for breakfast and lunch and then a couple of crumpets with jam for supper. Oh dear. Time for an overhaul methinks…
