Your Skin Miracle

Every gym bag needs a good BB cream living inside it, but for those who live a fast-paced, no nonsense lifestyle it is even more of a necessity. We love this DayWear cream by Estee Lauder because it serves as an oil-free moisturizer while creating an airbrushed complexion. Whether you're looking for some quick coverage as you head into a workout or want to cover your skin for a grocery trip post-workout, this BB cream will be your dream come true. Oh, and just in case you decide to bring your workout outside, this BB cream has an SPF 35 built in. A total win-win.

The Locker Bag

Say goodbye to unpacking your gym bag only to still have to stuff it in the bottom of the locker. The Glo Bag is an ultimate locker room savior, with built in compartments and dividers keeping your shoes separate from your towel, and your makeup neatly nestled between. Hang this bag up while working up a sweat, and roll it into the two-strap backpack as you go to and from. It couldn't be easier!
