Carrying a little extra (beauty) baggage to the gym? Stop— stock up on pint-sized versions of must-have products and leave the heavy lifting for your workout.
Wash Out Your Mouth
Forgo the whole toothbrush-toothpaste-floss-mouthwash combo and instead pick up a pack of Colgate Optic White Wisps, $2 for 4 brushes. These mini brush-and-pick combos leave breath fresh, remove any buildup and leave your teeth super-white by removing any surface stains.
A Fresh Pair
We’ve had our eyes on Cheeki panties, $11 to 19 each, for a bit now, but we’re particularly stoked to hear the sealed, single pair of undies has formally partnered with several gyms including 12 Equinox outposts. Because who doesn’t forget their unmentionables from time to time? These gems come in a number of different cuts to suit your every mood (and outfit).
Remove Chipped Polish
Wipe away chipped lacquer after nailing your WOD with these nail-polish remover pads from cult lacquer brand RGB, $28 for 20 swabs. May we suggest a sheer topcoat next time to reinforce your color of choice?
Swipe Away Grime
No time (or place?) for a shower? No problem! Humanix Action Wipes, $30 for 30 wipes, are large — nine by ten inches— and designed to rid your body of dirt, sweat and odor thanks to bacteria-fighting tea tree oil and refreshing eucalyptus.
Clean Your Mug
LaFresh Travel Lite Facial Wipes, $2 for 3 wipes, are everything you’d hope for in a totable cleanser: They’re oil-free and formulated with supercharged skin savers like the antioxidant vitamin E plus cucumber, chamomile and marshmallow extracts.
Treat Your Mane
Use your steam room time wisely— and moisturize your mane. Enriched with conditioning macadamia and argan oils, the Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Mask, $17 for 10 packets, will penetrate strands while you bid adieu to split ends and post-workout ponytail dents.
Forget your favorite stick of anti-perspirant — right now, we’re all about the handy Swipe, $10 for 7 wipes, a biodegradable, single-use cloth deodorant, formulated with tea tree oil to help fight the (seemingly endless) battle against underarm sweat and stench.
