1. The G.O.A.T Deodorant: DogPound x OffCourt Performance Body Spray, $18

When a celeb-loved gym (with clients like the Hadid sistas) collabs with a body spray brand… You shop whatever they drop. In this case, it’s an aluminum-free deo with an odor-fighting base and luxe fragrance notes of sparkling citrus, neroli, saffron, and white musk. We tried the vegan and cruelty-free deo-spray, and it’s officially an #HBGymStaple.

2. For Fresh (Not Sweaty) Strands: Not Your Mother’s Clean Freak Dry Shampoo, $7

This vegan aerosol can contains a clear sweat-absorbing formula that’s a) free from sulfates and parabens and b) doesn’t have a root-ruining white residue. It instantly absorbs excess oils – provided you use it correctly – and refreshes sweaty locks with laundry-smellin’ fragrance notes.

3. For Face Workouts: FACEGYM Signature Skin Mini Kit, $80

FaceGym’s all about helping you become the best version of yourself, so they’ve curated a list of face workouts (sculpting, draining, etc.) and ‘personal trainer in a bottle’ skincare formulas. Four of their signature formulas have been minified to fit your gym bag so you never, ever skip Face Day (wink), and are approved for both AM and PM use.

How to use: First, use the gel-to-foam Electro-Lite Gel Cleanser to cleanse your skin from sweat, followed by the Hydro-Bound Daily Serum to rehydrate, and the Youth Reformer Serum that soothes redness. Finish with their Supreme Restructure Firming Moisturiser. Remember: like the regular gym, consistency is key here!

4. The Hair Essential: KITSCH Eco-Friendly Nylon Elastics, $7

FYI: tight ponytails can damage your hair. But if it’s your go-to workout hairstyle, try using these eco-friendly nylon elastics that hold your stands up without slipping or creasing your locks. The $7 pack is available in black and brown and comes with 20 elastics, so you’ll always have an extra to lend your bestie.

5. For MAX Hydration: Hydracy Water Bottle with Time Marker, $23

Before snapping your progress pics, keep this cute bottle somewhere in the background. It has a detachable travel carry strap, a spill-proof top lid, and a fruit infusion filter that can be filled with strawberries, lemons, or herbs to yum-ify your water. But if that doesn’t remind you to take your next sip, the helpful timestamps will.

6. The Eco-Friendly Makeup Remover: Face Halo Original, $22

Always start your sweat-sesh makeup free if possible. It doesn’t need to be complex; just add water to this award-winning HaloTech fibers to cleanse your face from itty-bitty particles without the harsh rubbing that typically comes with single-use makeup wipes. Did we mention that you can reuse it 500 times? Once it’s taken off your makeup, wash it with a little soap and water and leave it to air dry.

7. ⁠For Sweaty Sessions: Eono Microfibre Towel, $20

As sweaty hunnies, we know how important it is to carry a towel – like these highly absorbant microfiber towels – to soak up every drop of sweat during and after your workout. Speaking from experience, you’ll appreciate how lightweight it is and how quickly it dries. Plus, you’ll love the portable travel case as it saves so much space in your gym bag.

8. For Shiny Tresses: BREAD BEAUTY SUPPLY Hair Mask Creamy Deep Conditioner, $28

Before you hit the weights, slick your hair into a snatched bun with this repairing hair mask – yes, we’re referring to the TikTok #maskbun! Wash it off after demolishing your routine, and thank Kakadu plum and starflower oil for making your hair shinier, stronger, and softer. You clever lil’ multitasker, you!

9. For Keeping Hairs Off Your Forehead: Chuangdi Zigzag Shark Tooth Hair Comb, $10

She’s retro-ish, but we’re not complaining because she gets the job done. She has NEVER failed to keep every single strand off our faces at spin class (a true challenge when Beyoncé’s playing) while creating that slicked-back hairstyle we love. Easy to put on with no ouchies – on all hair types – she’s a true winner in our books. It doesn’t hurt that we get a pack of six for just $10.

10. For Makeup Lovers: Burt’s Bees Facial Cleansing Towelettes, $5

While we wouldn’t recommend using face wipes as a makeup remover, we get that it makes things easy when you’re hitting the gym right after work and don’t have access to a sink. In (only) that case, rely on these wet towelettes to wipe off sunscreen, makeup, dirt, and grime. The travel-friendly $5 pack includes 30 cotton sheets drenched in nutrient-rich botanicals with a refreshing cucumber and mint scent that cleanse without irritation. Another major bonus? They’re made from at least 60% repurposed cotton, a waste product from T-shirt manufacturing, so they’re an eco-friendly option.
