Because you need these three items in your gym bag…
Since my back has been on the mend (again/finally), I’ve found myself driving home from a CruBox class super sweaty and, yeah, feeling kind of gross. Or, on the lighter side, I’ll take a tennis lesson and immediately notice my mascara has somehow run down my face. Taking that to heart, I started testing some of the new “athleisure” beauty brands and line extensions which, funny enough, were just discussed in this recent WWD article and these are my definitive favorites…
Bath & Body Works Fresh In a Flash Body Refresher + Yoga Mat Mist: As you guys know, I love a multi-tasker and the fact that this body refresh spray also doubles as a mist to clean off your yoga mat just really sold me. I also love the spray nozzle- super convenient for when you’re in a hurry to exit class. The scent is light and the mist is alcohol-free and made of aloe, cucumber, vitamin E, tea tree oil and clary sage…all good stuff.
e.l.f. Active Sweat Resistant Mascara & Brow Duo: Like I mentioned above, even when I’m working out I do usually wear a little mascara just so I don’t feel naked. This duo includes a long-lasting, waterproof mascara that won’t smear or smudge and a clear, sweat-resistant gel to comb and feather brows. After my last tennis lesson I have to say- there were no smudges or clumps on my face and it was nice not having to worry about black lines all over my sweaty face.
YUNI Flash Bath: And for those of you who do major cardio, this flash bath is gonna be your holy grail. The lightweight, no-rinse cleansing foam purifies skin with a blend of antibacterial neem extract and cooling aloe vera so you can enjoy just-showered freshness—even when there’s no time or place for a shower. I used this for the first time after a super intense CruBox class (applied it in my car) and it really did make me feel more refreshed. I was able to put my hoodie on and not feel like it was sticking to my body…that’s a win.
