One of the most important components in your gym arsenal is a cleansing men’s shower gel to refresh and revitalise after a hard session. Your hard work deserves more than the weird smelling, luminously coloured astringent shower gel they keep in the gym changing rooms.
Use Original Shower Gel which contains amazing natural ingredients and menthol to keep you cool. The perfect post work-out blast.
Our Original Shower Gel lathers into a rich foam with a burst of menthol. We use a unique blend of 8 essential oils for a light, fresh masculine scent. With added menthol to help refresh and cool.
If you want to save on space, you can purchase mini bottles (usually 100ml or less) from most larger supermarkets or travel shops. Then all you have to do is decant some shower gel from 200ml tube to smaller bottle.
Even better than that, keep hold of your little minis (like a travel sized shampoo) you may have panic bought in an airport. Make sure you rinse thoroughly and reuse.
If you’re not sure if you should be packing a soap or a body wash we’d advise that it doesn’t matter too much and comes down to personal preference. As long as it cleans and refreshes without drying out the skin you should be covered. If you’ve decided on packing a soap, make sure you have a water tight soap case to stop any suds leaking in your gym bag.
Grease Controlling Face Wash
Ever notice that your skin likes to host a little blemish party when you up the ante on your gym regime? The combination of sweat and dirt can clog your pores leading to break outs. Make sure you hit the shower straight after you finish working out rather than waiting too long and hanging around in your sweaty gym kit.
Now you’ve got your body wash for oily skin sorted make sure you look after your face too by including a specialist product in your gym bag. Even if you’re not prone to oily skin, the increase of sweat following exercise can result in your skin behaving a little differently than you’re used to.
Upping the ante and using an Oil Control Face Wash will help to deal with the problems faced by oily skin, whether that’s your usual skin type of something some related to your environment and lifestyle.
We’d recommend that you lather up and give you face a thorough (but gentle) wash for at least a good 30 seconds. It doesn’t sound like long but, next time you wash your face, try counting in your head. We reckon you’ll be surprise by how short your usual cleanse takes.
Working out causes transepidermal water loss. In English this is when water passes from the top two layers of the skin and then evaporates from the skin’s surface. It’s a natural process but sweating encourages this to happen rapidly. Counteract it with Oil Control Moisturiser – a light, hydrating moisturiser.

Good to Go
Whether you’re an early bird, lunchtime lunge lizard or evening power lifter you want to know that you can step out of the gym changing rooms and go about the rest of your day without any lingering smells (gross) or gnarly post-dumbbell hands. It may sound obvious but, now you’ve showered and cleansed, you can still make sure you’re looking your very best after a work out with a few simple and easy to use products.
Just like you’d drink lots of water on the day that you exercise, give your skin a long refreshing drink. Working out causes transepidermal water loss. In English this is when water passes from the top two layers of the skin and then evaporates from the skin’s surface. It’s a natural process but sweating encourages this to happen rapidly. Counteract it with Oil Control Moisturiser a light, hydrating moisturiser.
It’s also important to roll with the best deodorant for men. Put down the strong aerosol, it’s just not cool to use in an enclosed space (let’s be considerate people). You want a low-key deodorant that doesn’t overpower your favourite fragrance. Our Original Deodorant roll-on is aluminium free and contains a blend of essential oils.
Finally, look after your extremities! If you’ve spent an hours gripping, pushing & pulling your hands have down a huge amount of work bearing the brunt for the rest of your body. Look after them with a specially formulated hand cream for men. It will tend to be a thicker formulation than a regular body lotion as your hands will be used to much more exposure than other parts of your body (ahem) so will need to be more nourishing. Our Original Hand Cream fits the bill perfectly.
Can I use shower gel as shampoo?
There’s no harm using our shower gel instead of a shampoo but, as it’s been specially formulated for the body not hair, we would recommend that you only use it on the hair as a last resort i.e. if you’ve forgotten your shampoo.
“"You want a face wash that’s going to properly cleanse the skin on your face gently without leaving it feeling dried out or uncomfortable."”
Can I use shower gel as a face wash?
We’d say no to this one. You want a face wash that’s going to properly cleanse the skin on your face gently without leaving it feeling dried out or uncomfortable. A shower gel won’t be formulated for this purpose so might leave the skin feeling to dry and uncomfortable.
Can I use a moisturiser on my hands as well as my face?
You can but because the skin on the hands is much thicker than that on your face, it won’t fully rehydrate the skin. Using a thicker formulation (such as our Original Hand cream) will give you a much better outcome.
