Nivea Hydro Care (and some hot men)

This is a sponsored post

Valentines day is looming. Which means enforced romance (sorry if it makes me demanding, but what about the other 364 days of the year?!) whispering sweet nothings whilst eating over priced food and if you’re lucky, ending the night with a smooch or two.

So, thinking along the whole kissing theme I decided to take a moment to contemplate that all important issue of who would I like to smooch. Of course the correct answer is of course my boyfriend, but just for blogging purposes (ahem) I’ve decided to use a bit of artistic licence and think of the top 5 people that (given a free pass) I would snog.

I blame the boyfriend for the majority of this list, as there are a significant number of sports players – from sports that I probably wouldn’t have batted an eyelid at until I met him. But I guess a girl has to find a way to entertain herself through HOURS of sky sports…

1. Jake Gyllenhaal

Ever since watching Jar Head I’ve had a thing for Mr Gyllenhaal. He’s a hottie who also seems to be quite funny, intelligent and nice too. Definitely would.

2. Johnny Wilkinson

Ah, Johnny Wilkinson, how do I love thee… I love the confidence of a professional sports man, plus the arms of a rugby player and he seems like a down to earth gentleman. Yep, definitely would.

3. Andrew/Freddie Flintoff

A fairly recent addition to the list, ever since I watched him on A League of Their Own (seeing him sing Elvis really did it for me) I decided Freddie is rather yummy. As I explained my crush to my friends, I just want to go to the pub with him. He seems very down to earth and again, the confidence/arrogance of a sportsman definitely does it for me. Yep, would.

4. Josh Lewsey

This one is slightly harder to explain as I struggled to find a picture that gives a clear idea of the hottness that is Josh Lewsey (this one works). But I have seen him in the flesh, in a West London pub, wearing jeans and a casual white shirt and let me tell you – he looked good. I may have struggled to hold a conversation that night. Again, the arms of a rugby player. Yummy. Plus Mr Lewsey knocked out Danny Cipriani for being an idiot, definite extra hot points for that.

5. Paul Rudd

I love him. Bit of a departure from the rugby/cricket boy theme, but he’s funny, cute and I have liked every role I have seen him play since Clueless. He’s lovely.

Of course, to even be allowed to daydream about kissing these rather tasty men I need to have lips in a fit shape to do so. I doubt Jake would consider a peck on the cheek if my lips were chapped and crusty. I’ve been using Nivea Hydro Care lip balm for a few days (since almost stupidly conveniently, my lips suddenly got chapped again this weekend) and it’s sorting them right out. The balm is packed with water to hydrate and aloe vera to soothe.

I find that the most noticeable thing about this balm is that it creates a film over the lips that feels like a protective balm. Which I found really helps with my top lip, which as it was chapped was feeling sensitive. Plus it helps to stop me licking them and making it worse. It doesn’t just coat the lips though, it moisturises too. All for under £2.

    Haha, I’m not going to lie – the research for this was tough (searching through pictures of hot men…) but worth it

    I agree with Paul Rudd and Freddie was also on my list but I thought one more person might be pushing my luck a bit with Mr Beauty Scoop haha!

    Have you been watching Freddie Flintoff Versus The World? ITV4 if you haven’t – bloody brilliant. x

    Interviewed Paul Rudd and he’s was so lovely > it made me like him even more. Grey suit, crisp white shirt and lovely tanned hands…and happily married. Would go for 4/5 of your list, nice choice!
