What do you get when you combine a love of beauty with a passion for fitness? Why, this blog, of course! As a blogger, I am introduced to all kinds of products that make my life easier. With products going in and out of my gym bag rotation all the time, I figured why not share with you all what I’m loving this week. So without further adieu, the inaugural gym bag staples weekly post!
Zest Fruitboost Revitalizing Shower Gels and Body Scrubs
In and out of the gym, cleanliness is key. Lately, post-workout, I’ve been reaching for Zest’s Fruitboost line, which houses scrubs and shower gels in delicious scents that smell good enough to eat. The scrub wakes my skin up and sloughs off all the accumulated grime from my workouts, while the shower gels cleanse, moisturize, and refresh my skin. At an affordable price point, there’s no reason not to stock up on all the scents in these dynamic duos.
Number 4 Haircare
While we are on the subject of things to use in the shower, Number 4 haircare is the latest line of hair products that my mane is loving. It’s no secret that I have problematic hair (I mean, just look at it and you will know), but N4’s shampoo and deep conditioner is doing a pretty awesome job at cleansing and moisturizing my curly, frizzy, color-treated locks. You can purchase all of their products, here: http://www.number4hair.com/
CVS Beauty 360 Facial Wipes
I am a HUGE fan of facial wipes, for everything from makeup removal to refreshing my body mid-workout. Enter the new facial wipes from CVS Beauty 360, which offers up a wipe for every facial need (think exfoliating, renewing, soothing, and more!). At only $7.99, I can afford to keep a couple of varieties in my gym bag, to use whenever I need a refresh.
Lancome Juicy Shaker
There isn’t much makeup I can wear while I’m sweating it out in the gym, but if there is one product that’s a MUST-HAVE, it’s a great lip balm. New to the Lancome family is the Juicy Shaker – a lip oil that is part hydrating and nourishing lip balm, and part shiny, softly-tinted gloss. It’s available in 20 shades for every color lover, and the perfectly adorable, portable packaging means I can keep one in my gym bag, as well as another in my purse for quick touch-ups. To apply, all you have to do is give it a shake and brush it on.
Always Sheer Dailies
All fit chicks know, there are some things that aren’t so glamorous about living that fit lifestyle. Case in point, sweaty undies. We all know that working out yields some rather unsavory sides (like sweating!) that can leave you feeling uncomfortable or worse, prone to odors, and unwanted bacteria. Enter Always Sheer Dailies – a perfectly portable, breathable liner that keeps you comfortable, no matter how hard you work. Find them at your local drugstore.
I know what you’re thinking – what is food doing in a post on gym bag staples? Well, if you know me, you’ll know that I train hard, and quick carbs are a must post workout for me. Walkers shortbread is not only delicious, but these snack packs are the perfect amount of cookie to satisfy me when the hanger hits. As a bonus, these are gluten free, too!
From drugstore to prestige, fitness to food, I’ve got you covered with my gym bag staples, right here!
