Gym Bag Beauty

11:30 AM

I often find myself heading to barre class for a workout before or after work so it's important that I have a perfectly packed gym bag. While I pack more makeup when I hit the gym before work, there are a few beauty products I take with me to every workout... 

Hair Ties & a Headband: Lately, I've been working up quite a sweat at barre. A couple of hair ties and a fun headband are always lurking in my lululemon gym bag. I made this chevron headband with materials from Sunshine Shoppe Supply. For around $8 I made 3 headbands and 14 hair ties. Super easy, and they make great gifts!

Face Wipes: I hate working out with makeup on and I like to clean my face post-workout as well, so a pack of face wipes are always in my bag. I picked up this pocket sized pack at H&M for $1, but I also like First Aid Beauty's Gentle Cleansing Wipes.

Translucent Powder: I hate having a shiny face so I toss these Mineral Powder Blotting Tissues from The Body Shop into my makeup bag. I don't love them but I seem to have misplaced my Shiseido Translucent Pressed Powder so these will do for now.

Lip Balm: I'm loving this glossy balm I received on my most recent trip to Origins at Faneuil Hall. Their Drink Up Hydrating Lip Balm has the look of a gloss but the moisturizing properties of a balm. It somehow manages to moisturize my lips even in this brutal Wintry cold, which is a major plus for me.

Perfume: A purse sized perfume like this roller ball of Viktor & Rolf's Flowerbomb is ideal for on-the-go application. Just a touch on my wrists and behind my ears and I'm good to go. This is one of my absolute favorite perfumes, it just smells so clean!

Deodorant: Perfect for the gym, these Whish Deodorant Swipes smell great, protect from sweat, and are packed with hair growth inhibitors to actually slow the growth of hair. The individual swipes are perfect for those who are already toting around several other products, saving space in your bag and making application easy.
