Packing A Gym Bag For The Office: Toiletries Edition

Packing A Gym Bag for the Office: Toiletries Edition

I’m about two weeks deep in a new corporate job and find myself packing a gym bag each night for a post-office workout. I sweat rivers from my face so I like to bring a variety of travel friendly skincare products – gym appropriate of course. Here are some of my most used and needed toiletries to hop from work straight to the gym.

Korres Pomegranate Toner: I’m a toner noob and recently discovered all the great things that it can do. Absolutely head over heels for this product! I find that it removes all the stuff my cleanser can’t like dirt and oil while mattifying my skin. I also noticed that my skin is less oily with frequent use.

Clean Moisture Absorbent Deodorant: I’m a big fan of the Clean Original Scent mostly because it smells like I’ve just rubbed my whole body with a pure bar of french soap. Aluminum-free is an added bonus.

Bumble and bumble Seaweed Mild Marine Shampoo: If you’re an everyday hair washer like I am, this is an ideal match for frequent bathers! This shampoo is gentle, mild and moisturizing with sea kelp and spirulina extract. My hair and roots feel clean and not stripped dry.

Josie Maran Argan Color Stick: This sheer stick adds a natural rosey hint of color to my cheeks when I’m done at the gym. Quick and easy to blend for on the go! Its dual purpose is treating the skin with argan oil while leaving a dewy finish.

Kate Somerville ExfoliKate: Proclaimed as a facial’s equivalent, I received a sample size of Exfolikate and love how you can feel the difference of it polishing your skin for an ultimate smooth complexion. I’m also quite fond of the scent although it is quite pricey.

Neutrogena Naturals Multi-Vitamin Nourishing Moisturizer: This is my favorite everyday moisturizer from the drugstore! I have two tubes of it, one for home and one for travel. You simply can’t go wrong with this knowing that it absorbs instantly, smells great, is boosted with vitamin goodness and is 97% naturally derived.

Johnson’s Hand and Face Wipes: An absolute must in every gym bag! These alcohol-free cleansing towelettes eliminate dirt and germs from your daily face grime and all those gym equipment you touched. They’re damp and leave no sticky residue, but smells like soft baby powder and is gentle as pure water.

    this may be a dumb question but… do you wash your face before your workout? i’m wanting to start going to the gym after work but the logistics of it all is making the lazy part of me take control! of course this post you have is reviving that wish though ;)

    Hi Lynda, great question! I usually do wash my face before I workout just because I prefer not to melt it off instead. But lately I haven’t because I’ve only been wearing tinted moizturizer. However, I would highly recommend to wash your face so that when you sweat, your skin’s surface is clean. This will avoid clogging your pores. Good luck!
