Spring is flying by and before you know it, summer will be here. I know for many women, they are hitting the gym hard to get their workouts in before bathing suit season. I have reviewed must have necessities for your gym bag.
The first, and my favorite, is Burt's Bees Brightening Daily Facial Cleanser with Daisy Extract. I am a huge fan of Burt's Bees skin care products, and there are no exceptions with this one. I admit, I am lazy when it comes to removing make up. I hate having multi-steps to clean my face. By the end of the day, I want to wash it and go to bed, so using a makeup remover before washing is out of the question. This product allows me to skip that step and just wash. It easily removes makeup along with dirt and oil. It is soft and silky to use and my face feels great afterwards. It claims to even skin tone (when used as part of a regimen with other Burt's Bees products) and create a brighter, more luminous complexion.
Scunci Everyday and Active Reversible Stretch Headwrap is cute and functional. And not only can it be worn to the gym, but for every day. It's unique design includes a back braid. I also love that it is reversible, making it two headbands in one. This headband also did not slip on my hair like so many do. Completely adorable!
KMS California HairPlay Makeover Spray is a must-have! Don't have time to wash your hair? Use the HairPlay Makeover Spray to dry clean for a quick fix. My hair felt fresh and clean. Or did you just wash and hair is to silky to hold your style? Use the spray all over to increase texture and bulk. Kms California Hair Play Makeover Spray is great for all hair types, especially fine or limp hair. I can't live without dry shampoo (especially when camping).
Rimmel Wonderful Wonderlash Waterproof Mascara is a must-have for the summer months. Love the fine brush on the wand--it really separates your lashes for a nice, thickening coverage. Formulated with Argan Oil, this waterproof mascara is clump free. I do still prefer my department store mascara a bit better, however, it is not waterproof. Retails for $5-$10.
NYC Smooth Skin BB Cream Instant Matte refines your skin instantly. This long-wearing creme has a matte finish. I like BB cremes over traditional foundations because they generally feel much lighter on your skin. the NYC BB creme has great coverage and reduces shine. It feels a bit heavier than my current BB creme, but does a nice job. Retails on Amazon for $17.46 for a 3 pack!
You definitely want a spot for Ban Total Refresh Cooling Body Cloths in your gym bag. There are days that I need to make a quick stop at the grocery before I go home and shower. The Ban cloths are perfect to freshen up with. I also love to carry these when I am out an about, say at a festival or other outdoor activity when it is hot and sweaty out. A quick wipe with a cloth and you feel cool and refreshed. They are even safe to use on your face.
You know what is in my gym bag. Now, what is in yours?
