Struggling to get your backside on that bike? We hear you. That’s why we’ve teamed up with some beautyheaven brands that know the modern beauty wants to look good and feel good. What’s more, our beauty comrades have been kind enough to donate each and every gym essential you read about on this page (we’ll even throw in a fancy Puma gym bag to boot) so that you can get sporty in style.
GOANNA Heat Cream – it may not be an obvious stylish addition to your gym bag, but you don’t need us to tell you that sprained ankles and a bad back are never going to be in fashion. That’s why us bh gals always, always make sure we have this handy tube about our person to warm our muscles before and after exercise (it has the handy additional benefit of making you look like you actually know what you’re doing too). It provides super speedy and effective temporary relief from nasties like muscle tightness, bruising, lumbago (back pain to you and me) and strains and sprains. And it’s a good ol’ Aussie icon that’s been going strong for 100 years and uses natural bush ingredients – that’s us sold!
Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Shave Gel – this refreshing foaming gel contains skin conditioners to moisturise for an extra close shave.
Toni&Guy Refreshing Dry Shampoo – heading straight to work after your workout? Then this is your saviour. Its lightweight formula cleanses and deodorises hair when there’s no time for washing.
NIVEA Deodorant Fresh Roll-on for Women – with its light fragrance that creates a feeling of natural freshness on the skin and 24 hours anti-perspirant protection, you’ll have no excuse against a strenuous workout – sorry!
American Beauty Luxurious Lather Creamy Cleanser – do your skin a favour and remove your make-up before you start those downward dogs. This creamy cleanser gently dissolves make-up and dirt, leaving skin clean, calm and comfortable.
Le Tan SPF 30+ Face – if you’re exercising in the sun, be sure to factor up. This handy little tube is an ideal companion for your sports bag. It offers three hours water-resistant broad-spectrum protection against UVA and UVB rays.
A’kin Pure Rose Hydrating Mist – after all that activity your skin will be in need of a refreshing spritz of moisture. Containing rosa centifolia flower, aloe barbadensis leaf juice and vitamin B5, skin will be left refreshed and soothed.
Carmex® Lip Balm Click Sticks™ in Strawberry – we don’t know about you but our lips are always the first giveaway that we’ve, ahem, over-exerted ourselves somewhat. They go all dry and chapped. Not with Click Sticks™ though. The strawberry-flavoured wonder also has SPF 15 protection so it’s pretty and practical.
