As the holidays approach, I am going to review several products that I think are great gift ideas for runners and fitness enthusiasts alike. Some of them are ones that I have been sent to review by companies but I really do think they will make great gifts. I hope you enjoy my 2012 Holiday Gift Guide!
When I work out, I get really sweaty but then again who doesn’t. I love the feeling that I get during a really good workout but I hate the layer of sweat that accumulates on my skin. The worst feeling is when I don’t have time to take a shower in between my workout and running errands. I can’t tell you how many times I have walked into a Starbucks after my long runs and worried about how I smelled to the other people in line. This girl really needs her coffee after a run!
Since I started running and working out a lot, I have tried several different types of shower/cleaning wipes to help me freshen up. I don’t want my workouts to be defined by my proximity to a shower. No one of them really worked because they never left me feeling clean and fresh. Several of them even left a soapy residue on my skin, which is worse than sweat in my opinion. I dealt with that feeling because I didn’t want to be THAT person in the line at Starbucks or in the grocery store. These wipes also come in handy for feeling fresh at the post-race celebrations. I certainly wished I had some after the Wine and Dine Half Marathon!
Enter the ShowerPill Athletic Body Wipe!
The ShowerPill Athletic Body Wipe is the hygiene supplement to help you maintain that perpetual State of Freshness throughout the day. Made for athletes, but perfect for everyone from busy professionals to weekend warriors …
These things are great for multiple reasons. They come individually wrapped, which gives them a truly on-the-go versatility. They can easily fit into your gym bag, purse or pocket. They also make great stocking stuffers!!!
The wipes are large and thick, which means they are durable and will easily clean your entire body. When I work out, I don’t just sweat on the areas that are exposed so thin baby wipes just don’t work for me.
The ShowerPill wipes also contain Aloe Vera and Vitamin E and kills 99.9% of all germs. The wipes dry quickly and don’t leave a sticky residue, which is a huge plus in my book! They don’t contain parabens and are alcohol free, which means they won’t sting when going over broken skin (i.e. chaffing!).
The folks at ShowerPill are having a Buy two (2), get one (1) FREE Black Friday Sale for my readers on Amazon. All you have to do is place 3 boxes in your shopping cart and enter the code: SPFRIDAY. The offer is valid from 11/23 to 11/25 (Friday, Saturday and Sunday).
