At Bondi Beauty, we know exactly what beauty products you need in your gym bag, and they’re all here:
We’ve compiled a list of goodies that’ll have you covered next time you’re working out.
Face Wipes: Perfect for removing the bulk of your make up beforehand, soaking up sweat and for refreshing and toning afterwards. Choose a gentle wipe like Wotnot Facial Wipes $7.95. These are certified organic, chemical free, infused with amazing ingredients like rosehip oil and are perfect for sensitive skin.
Blotting Papers: Doing yoga or pilates? Opt for blotting papers instead of face wipes. You can still keep your makeup on and use them for touch-ups afterwards. The Body Shop Tea Tree Blotting Papers are a steal for only $4.95. Perfect for lunch-hour sessions.
Dry shampoo: No time to wash your hair? Dry shampoo is every fitness girl’s best friend. Apply to your roots and work into the hair – the trick is to leave it on for at least 4 minutes to soak up excess oil and then brush for an instant refresh. Batiste Dry Shampoo $9.95 has a fab range for specific hair types like brunettes and blondes.
Lip & Cheek stains: This is another two-in-one save-your-life kind of product with the dual purpose of perking up your cheeks and lips. No brush is required just apply a few dots on your cheeks, lips or both with your finger and blend. Benefit Benetint $55 is a universal shade that will work for most complexions.
Muscle Therapy: Say hello to your new best friend. This Works In Transit Muscle Therapy $42 is an amazing, cooling rollerball infused with essential oils that will soothe any achy, tired muscles or even headaches. Apply to your sore spots and you’re good to go in minutes.
Face spray; this may seem like a bit of a luxury but your skin will thank you. Spritzing the Dermalogica Antioxidant Hydramist $17.50 all over the skin is going to give an instant refresh and add a boost of hydration. Great to spray for an instant boost any time of the day – and it also works over make-up.
Light Moisturiser or BB cream: BB creams are a gym junkie’s best friend because they’re super lightweight and easy to apply. Kiehl’s Actively Correcting & Beautifying BB cream $38 is the perfect multi-tasker that will give you light coverage whilst nourishing the skin. Don’t need any coverage? Slather a lightweight moisturizer like Estee Lauder Hydrationist Maximum Moisture Crème $75 all over for ultimate rehydration.
Foundation: Good to keep on hand in case you are squeezing in a session before an event. The MAC Face & Body $49 is a great buildable foundation with a beautiful natural finish. Dot all over face and blend in with fingers – no brushes needed. If you happen to have a bruise from an over zealous workout, you can also use it to cover it up before you head out.
Waterproof mascara: Is a must-have if you feel naked without mascara and will save you from looking like a panda. The Estee Lauder Sumptuous Extreme Waterproof Mascara $52 is a fantastic all-rounder. Apply one coat before working out for subtle definition or two coats afterwards for a bit more length and volume.
