PART ONE: POST WORKOUT NATURAL BODYCARE GIFTS
OM Oil by Myroo (RRP £24.00). Chantal: “Oh my goodness! The Om Oil is like giving yourself a gorgeous warming hug after a workout. For me, the oil worked best gently massaged into my muscles following exercise, gently warming and soothing whilst adding the right amount of moisture for my skin. I am left feeling revitalised with no greasy residue. The Om Oil is going to become a mainstay in my gym bag to help me feel human after a tough workout, run or cycle!”
Deep Release Hand & Body Wash by Bloom Remedies (RRP £13.00). Vivienne: “A very refreshing hand and body wash. Ginger, Lemongrass and Lime – wonderful smells on their own and in this mix together. A little daily pick me up! It doesn’t lather much, but that’s fine – it shows it isn’t full of silly chemicals. Great for a refreshing shower after exercise.”
BUFF BODY Post Workout Blend Sea Salt Body Scrub (RRP £18.50) Lizzie: “The post workout blend smells incredible; it has a woody, almost masculine fragrance which I loved and the packaging is fresh and modern. After I’d managed to keep enough in my hands to apply it I was left with smooth, glistening legs. It soothed my muscles and kept my lizard shins hydrated all day.”
Muscle Balm by Silvan Skincare (RRP £14.50) Chantal: “The Silvan Muscle Balm arrived in my life the morning after completing 170+ mile relay around the South-East coast. I massaged it into my beaten muscles and could immediately feel them breathe a sigh of relief as tension eased and I started to feel human again! The jar is the perfect size to pop in a gym bag.” PART TWO: ETHICAL ACTIVE WEAR GIFTS
Fearless Sweatshirt by This Mum Runs (RRP £39.99): Corinne: “I’ve already got a hoodie by TMR but this one is on my Christmas list! TMR support women to get into running by offering free social runs and training. It is an inspirational and supportive community led by women for women.”
Women’s Tights by Contra (RRP £38.00). Lizzie: ” I’ve recently discovered Contra, their range is brilliant and kit is ethically produced with all profits going to Parkrun.”
BAM Bamboo Trainer Socks (RRP 16.50). Chantal: “I’ve got these running socks and they are great – the bamboo fabric has anti-bacterial properties and they are very comfortable” PART THREE: PLASTIC FREE ACCESSORIES
Chillys Bottles (RRP £25.00) Corinne: “Never buy a single use plastic water bottle again, these eco bottles are perfect for an active lifestyle and there are so many colour ranges to choose from. I’ve already bought one of these for Christmas gifts this year”
Bohemia Hammam Towel (RRP £36.00) Corinne: “This lightweight towel is handmade ethically in Turkey, it dries much faster and looks fabulous. Perfect for the active globetrotter or for a spare gym bag towel. It makes me dream of sun soaked Yoga session on the beach!”
Leave No Trace Bathroom Set (RRP: £16.00) Corinne: “My sister in law gifted me these cotton reusable make-up remover rounds for my birthday and they’ve been washed tons of times. Great for gym bag spares and not a plastic wipe in sight!”
