Review: Hot Tot

A few weeks ago we were sent a set of Hot Tot products to review. This is the first time we have used anything other than shampoo and conditioner on LP’s hair and I was really looking forward to seeing how they worked.

We were sent the Hot Tot Shampoo, Spotless Babywash, Sweet Pea Curl Serum and Finishing Mist. All the products look beautiful together and come in really professional looking bottles – they smell like products you’d use in an adult hair salon too – so different to the baby products we have used up until now and really lovely too!


The Hot Tot Shampoo worked well, lathered nicely and didn’t leave any residue at all. The Babywash, unlike other body washes we have used, comes out as a foam that is easy to rub in and is really kind on the children’s skin. Like the other products it smells wonderful and the fragrance stays on the children for hours after they’ve had a wash.

The Sweet Pea Curl Serum can be used on damp hair before styling or on dry hair. As we don’t use a hairdryer on LP I have just used the curl serum on dry hair in the morning. It has really helped to emphasise LP’s natural waves and when I’ve plaited her hair overnight it has made the curls in her hair so much more prominent in the morning. With the curl serum a little goes a long way and it doesn’t leave her hair greasy at all.


The Finishing Mist is like a gentle hairspray and has been great when LP has gone to parties or anywhere else a bit more special. It keeps her hair in place and unlike hair sprays I have used in the past it doesn’t make her hair feel caked in product or dry. It works well without any negatives and seems to be nice to her hair too – something that’s really important to me.Β We have loved using Hot Tot products and see us using them going forward.

Disclosure: We were sent the above products for the purpose of this review however all opinions are my own.

  1. I have never tried them but like the sound of the Sweet Pea Curl Serum as her hair looks gorgeous after using it.

  2. I quite fancy using the Sweet Pea Curl Serum on my hair.

    Your daughter’s hair looks in lovely condition, really shiny.

  3. I would love to try the curl serum on my girls hair, they both have curly locks and they hate having their hair done!

  4. The babywash looks lush, I will definitely look out for this as my daughter is just about to have her first baby, a little boy and it would be ideal for her.

  5. I really like the sound of the finishing mist. My son has really unruly hair but I don’t like the idea of putting adults wax or gel in it, I’d love to try it πŸ™‚ x

  6. The Sweet Pea Curl Serum sounds great as we have lots of very mad curls in this house which have a tendency to go frizzy.

  7. I have never used these products but like the sound of the conditioning detangler as my hair is long and gets very knotted

  8. I think the Sweet Pea Curl Serum sounds fantastic. It might stop me looking like cousin IT in the mornings. Either that or the baby wash would be handy as I am getting induced with baby 2 on Friday (wish me luck!!!!) X

  9. Ive not used or heard of the Hot Tot products before but the shampoo sounds like its very gentle. Perfect for my little one.
