Gym Bag Beauty Essentials

Leaving the gym looking like a hot-mess means that your gym beauty kit isn’t up to standard. It needs to get you through your day giving you that flawless, undone look. It’s time to offload all the junk you don’t use and read our guide to creating the perfect versatile gym beauty kit.

Cleansing Wipes

It’s important to cleanse your face before and after a workout to protect your skin from breaking out. Doing a proper cleanse at the gym might not be an option, so the Herban Essentials Eucalyptus Face Wipes should be in your kit. With anti-bacterial properties, these wipes give your skin a deep cleanse whilst killing off any bacteria and dirt residue you may have leftover from the workout.

The Do-It-All Oil

Having a multipurpose product in your gym bag not only saves time but saves a lot of space in your beauty kit. The Sans (ceuticals) Body, Hair and Face Oil is infused with Vitamin A to help firm and tighten the skin. Vitamin E, Omega 3, 6 and 9 all help to increase the skins cell production and inject a powerful dose moisture that will nourish your face, ends of your hair or body.

Dry Shampoo

Washing your hair isn’t a priority after the gym, so using an absorbent powder will soak up all the oil you have, leaving the gym with texture and bounce. The Alder New York Texture Powder is a non-aerosol, all natural dry shampoo that uses eucalyptus, rice powder and cleansing clay minerals to absorb excess oil and provide long-lasting volume.

A Lip And Cheek Product

For a touch of colour on cheeks and lips, the Rms Lip2cheek in Promise is the perfect multi-use balm to give your face some radiance. Using all natural and organic ingredients, this warm dusty brown will sculpt and highlight your face to look like areas the sun has hit.

A Good Quality Hairbrush

The one thing you need to take you from the gym to the street is having nicely groomed hair. Hand made in Italy, the gorgeous Yves Durif Hair Brush is made of natural rubber resin which stimulates circulation in the scalp and helps with oil production. The chic design makes it easy to use with tools to be the perfect accessory to finish off your post-gym beauty ritual.

Body Wash

The obligatory shower after a workout is way less boring with the Leif Wild Rosella and Alpine Pepper Body Cleanser. Made from Australian native botanicals, this body wash naturally disinfects your skin whilst giving your body a fresh, vibrant scent to walk out of the gym with.


A little coverage goes a long way when your red all over from a big workout, so an easy to use foundation has to be in your kit. The Ere Perez Oat Milk Foundation is made with Oat milk, Peach & Vitamin E to nourish the skin deepest layers whilst offering light to medium dewy coverage. Due to the oak milk, this foundation will calm inflammation and reduce redness for the perfect after gym product.
