We don’t know about you, but our gym bags are almost as full as our schedules these days. It doesn’t hurt to switch things out, as what is necessary for health and wellness in the fall and winter may not be what you want to use for spring and summer. Luckily for you, we picked five new products that we consider gym bag essentials sure to keep you fresh and comfortable all summer long.
ChafeZone for Chub Rub – $9
When the temperature increases but your interest in wearing biking shorts everywhere or putting deodorant and powder between your legs doesn’t, you need to find a better path to relief. Thank goodness MedZone’s new product, ChafeZone for ChubRub, a petroleum-like lubricant, provides it. A stick the size of your everyday deodorant, one swipe of this sweat-resistant product keeps you cozy when you’re wearing a tight skirt or prepping for a run.
Kleenex Ultra Soft Go-Anywhere Tissues – $2-$7
We snapped this product on our gym bag and it ended up getting more compliments than our colorful workout ensembles. The new Ultra Soft Go-Anywhere tissue from Kleenex, with its snap strap and sealable lid, keeps your tissue from getting torn up, wet or dirtied inside of your bag. Not only that, but by utilizing the strap, your tissues will always be easily accessible. So when your nose runs or you need help cleaning up your makeup after applying it post-workout, you’ll be good to go. Check out the single pack for $2.19 and the four pack for $7.29.
Skinfix Face Cleansing Cloths – $10
Stubborn makeup? Want to refresh your face after getting sweaty during cycling? These natural cleansing cloths help you tidy up. Another bonus is that they’re gentle and infused with cucumber, aloe and red seaweed extracts. Toss a couple in your bag and be a help to someone or help yourself. Follow the wipes up with the foaming clay cleanser for a deep clean.
SweetSpot Labs On-The-Go Wipettes – $4
Who doesn’t love an individually-wrapped wipes? And who doesn’t enjoy variety? It’s the spice of life. SweetSpot’s on-the-go wipettes (made by women, for women) help you remove the spice from down below with their 98 percent natural ingredients, including soothing extracts of cranberry and pineapple. This particular package of wipes comes in a variety of light and lovely scents that are gentle. So when you’re feeling like smelling like a vanilla blossom one day, a mandarin the next and grapefruit a week later, you can.
Fytt Hit Restart Detoxifying Body Scrub Treatment – $54
What’s good for your insides can’t be bad for your outsides. New beauty line Fytt Beauty wants to prove that with their antioxidant, vitamin and mineral-rich products, including the detoxifying body scrub treatment. We had the chance to try the Hit Restart option (there are also Boost Energy and Gain Strength scrub treatments) made of kale, spinach, spirulina, cucumber and flaxseed. It’s the healthiest scrub you’ll ever use and one of the most exfoliating and nourishing beauty experiences as well. Try it after a tough workout (or mud relay?) and thank us later.
