What’s in Your Gym Bag?

Save the bicep workout for the gym—not your gym bag. A slimmed-down, well-edited tote will both ease your AM commute and speed up your post-workout refresh (remember: You earned that glass of wine). Here are the essentials that Birchbox staffers rely on in the locker room.

Workout Obsession: Ballet-inspired Barre Classes

Gym Bag All-Star: Weleda Cleansing Milk. “I can't stand being all sweaty after a class—especially when I can feel perspiration seeping into my skin. To keep my pores gunk-free, I always carry this lightweight, all-natural cleanser.”

Supporting Players: Post-workout, channel your inner Anna Pavlova with a supereasy and sleek topknot. Refresh strands with Nexxus®’s Youth Renewal™ Dry Shampoo, fasten into a high bun, and secure with a colorful, snag-free Twistband hair tie.

Gym Bag All-Star: Yes to Cucumbers™Towelettes. “One quick swipe after a grueling workout and I’m ready to go. Plus, they’re earth-friendly since they’re biodegradable.”

Supporting Players: Transform your cluttered bag into a zen-like oasis of calm with (MALIN+GOETZ) 1 oz essential kit. Mini versions of the brand’s best-selling Peppermint Shampoo and Cilantro Conditioner clarify sweaty locks fast, without stripping away natural oils and shine.

Workout Obsession: Spin

Gym Bag All-Star: Oribe Supershine Moisurizing Cream. “It makes my hair easy to comb and blow dry without having to do too much extra fuss.”

Supporting Players: Leave perfume at home—the lingering fresh scent of Whish’s Pomegranate Essential Set, with hydrating shave cream, rich body butter, and invigorating shower gel, is all you need. Cut down on post-workout primp time with Supergoop®’s CC Cream—the multiasker moisturizes, primes, protects, and conceals all at once.
