It’s summertime! Time to hit up your local gym for the latest yoga or HIIT classes. If you’re in a time-crunch, like the rest of the world, and need to head off to your next meeting (or Bumble date!), then we’ve got the most gym-worthy beauty products for you to keep stashed in your gym bag.
OHM NEVER HAVING A STINKY YOGA MAT AGAIN
Clean that yoga mat and get your feet all lavender-fresh before each yoga class with these clever, all natural Fresh Feet Yoga Mat Wipes (3 packs of 10/$9.95). Designed to be gentle enough for cleaning your mat and your feet, these wipes are alcohol-free and infused with lavender and tea tree oil.
Even if you sweat a little or a lot, your hair can be successfully and fabulously revived with Drybar’s Mini Bundle. Equipped with travel-sized portions of Triple Sec 3 in 1, Detox Dry Shampoo, Sparkling Soda Shine Mist, Money Maker Flexible Hold Hairspray and Dry Conditioner, they’re perfect for performing CPR on your hair after a hard cardio session to reviving that day two blowout.
When you don’t have a lot of room in your gym bag, but worry about what type of lip shade to have on hand, then you only need one option – Clarins Daily Energizer Lovely Lip Balm ($20). Jam-packed with extracts of cocoa, shea butter and red currant, lips are nourished and hydrated for up to eight hours. Depending on your mood, the formula will adjust to the pH of your lips, giving you a rosy or just-bitten look. This limited-edition lip balm will keep lips plump and hydrated, guaranteeing a successful Bumble date!
A NATURAL SMELL
Life just got a little bit easier with this multi-tasking, natural deodorant wipe. Whish deodorant swipes (8 pack/$7) contain ingredients such as saccharomyces ferment and witch-hazel extract, which are natural astringents that fight odor. Throw in a little chaparral extract, and these wipes also help slow down hair growth, so you just might find yourself using these every single day!
RAZOR FOR ON-THE-GO
Don’t you hate always searching for the one most important product in your gym bag? Yes, we’re talking about a razor. The Gillette’s Venus Snap ($9.99) is a mini-sized razor, and comes in a portable compact, making transporting this essential item…a snap! Equipped with a full-sized Venus Embrace cartridge and easy-to-grip handle, this razor is refillable, reusable and simplifies your beauty routine.
If your body temperature is still pumped up from the latest, trendy HIIT class, then after a shower, cool off with Origins Hit Refresh Cooling Moisturizer with Hawaiian Mineral Water ($32). It does exactly what is says – it refreshes and chills your body out upon application with an essential oil blend of Wild Mint, Spearmint and Eucalyptus. Your skin will feel hydrated from the Hawaiian Mineral Water, and you might just feel so refreshed that you’ll want to forego your meeting or date for another round of cardio… well, maybe not!
Get everything you need to prep, nourish and cleanse your face with Aveda’s Botanical Kinetics Skin Care Starter Set ($38). Based on your skin type, whether it’s dry/normal or oily/normal, this set covers all four cleansing steps in small, travel-sized bottles. Start with the crème cleanser, exfoliant, skin firming/toning agent and finish up with the hydrating lotion to complete your skincare regime.
