Gym Bag Heroes: Soothe Aches, Fight Frizz, and Hydrate

What’s in my gym bag is pretty static these days – in other words, it’s a catch-all for running accessories like blinky lights and WOD gear like wrist wraps and my WOD Book. I’ve been pretty excited to discover some new products (admittedly, two of them are beauty products, but given that I still need to look human, they’re kind of necessary) that I’ve dubbed Gym Bag Heroes:

OxyRub Pain Relief Cream. Full disclosure: I received this in exchange for an honest review. And, full disclosure, OxyRub Pain Relief Cream does not stink to high heaven. That’s it’s biggest draw, because other pain relief creams are horribly smelly. I might as well wear a big sign that I’m sore – and since I started CrossFit officially this month, that’s pretty much every day. No, this stuff rubs in without the stench, and it soothes muscular aches nicely.

Simple Facial Cleansing Wipes. When a rub with the towel won’t do – and neither will a splash of water, because you’re sweating in the Texas heat, grab a Simple Cleansing Wipe. I use these after WODs and runs to keep my pores from getting clogged with sweat and sunscreen.

Living Proof No Frizz Humidity Shield. I’ve actually been using the entire Living Proof set, with the shampoo and conditioner, and I’ve noticed a difference. I have puffy, frizzy Mediterranean hair, and Living Proof actually works. I spray on the Humidity Shield pre-workout, and it does keep the frizzies at bay. Full disclosure: this was another complimentary goodie.

SOS Rehydrate. That heat and humidity I was talking about? It means I’m in constant need of hydration. I’ll add a stick or two of this to my water bottle to make sure I’m replacing the electrolytes I’m sweating out. I get the citrus, and it’s tasty. Full disclosure: I’m an SOS Rehydrate ambassador. But this is good for you!
