Great Grooming Essentials For Your Gym Bag


If you’re the guy who uses the soap provided by your gym, slaps on a bit of deodorant and calls it a day, we’re not saying you’re doing it wrong – just that you could be doing it a little better. For anyone who fancies upgrading their post-workout routine, while still keeping it easy, this is how we’d do it…

The All-In-One Wash

Sport All-Over Wash, £29 | Bamford

Gone are the days of the skin-desiccating, hair-destroying all-in-one hair and body wash. This indulgent yet effective offering from Bamford is part of a sports range designed to refresh and enhance recovery post workout. Thanks to tea tree leaf extract, sweet orange essential oil, aloe vera and patchouli oil, it’s a soothing, anti-inflammatory hero we rate.

The Deodorant

Natural Deodorant- Santal & Vetiver, £18 (was £20) | Salt & Stone

This has become one of the most popular men’s natural roll-ons thanks to its winning combination of santal and vetiver scent plus added skincare benefits. Using hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid, it won’t dry or annoy your skin. The gel is also invisible, leaving behind no annoying white cast on clothes. Oh, it’s a natural deodorant that actually works too.

The Simple Face Cream

AM Facial Moisturising Lotion, £16.50 | CeraVe

If you don’t like fussing with multiple skincare products or steps at the best of times, we doubt you’ll pick up the habit post-gym. Instead, invest in one really good, hardworking face cream that’ll get the job done, fast. Hydrating, moisturising but gentle, CeraVe has amassed a cult following for a reason.

The Hair Product

My Nanna's Mousse, £22 | Larry King Hair

This mousse can go into wet hair to add texture as it dries. Simply work it into your roots then give it a blast of heat – or even just let it air dry. It’ll add a bit of volume and a subtle shine, while also protecting the hair.

The Recovery Hero

1000mg Muscle & Joint Freeze Roll-On, £38 | Puresport

Infused with magnesium, arnica, lavender, lemongrass, witch hazel, wintergreen and peppermint, this is a supercharged recovery balm worth having to hand after high-intensity workouts. Simply apply it to sore muscles and joints, choosing from either the cream or quick-dry gel roll-on.

The Travel Cologne

Ombre Leather Eau de Parfum Travel Spray, £31.94 (was £37) | Tom Ford

A spritz of a good cologne is a great final step. There are tons of travel size options out there, but we like Tom Ford for its long-lasting, luxe scents. Ombre Leather is a classic. Musky, mature and with subtle fresh notes, it’s the perfect all-rounder.

The Washbag

Hilo Wash Bag, £39 | Rains

Last but not least, a washbag will keep your grooming essentials from forever swimming around just out of reach at the bottom of your gym bag. Waterproof, easy to clean, sleek and affordable, this one from Rains is a no-brainer.
