dove dry spray antiperspirant review

I am so excited to be working with Dove for today's post! Since I've started working full time, I've really started to enjoy going to the gym. Growing up, I had dance pretty much every single day. Working out wasn't a huge concern for me at that time. Now though, I love making time to get to the gym about 5-6 days a week. I normally go to the gym over my lunch break, because I simply just cannot stare at my computer for 9 hours straight. Since I go over lunch, I need to be able to get there, get my workout in, shower/get ready, and be back at my desk as quickly as possible. Below are my gym bag essentials that help me get this done!

a water bottle is a gym bag necessity

My first gym bag essential is a water bottle. (Can you tell I love the color purple haha?!) This is an obvious one, but it makes a huge difference for me to have one versus using a water fountain. This is especially true if I am in a class. I hate running out of the classroom to get a drink as I'm afraid I'll miss something!

My second gym bag essential is my Dove Dry Spray Antiperspirant. This is an essential for both before and after a workout. I love how this product keeps me dry throughout my workout. This product goes on instantly dry, which may surprise you since it's a spray. This antiperspirant comes in multiple different scents. Dove Dry Spray Antiperspirant has got you covered when it comes to wetness and odor protection. Make sure to check out their NEW Original Clean and Smoothing Chamomile varieties next time you are out and about.

gym  bag essentials

Like I mentioned, I also use this product after a workout. The Dove Dry Spray Antiperspirant provides 48-hours of odor and wetness protection and Dove 1/4 moisturizers for softer, smoother underarms. Since there is visible residue, I never have to wait to get dressed after I apply. (A huge plus since I'm normally on a time crunch to get back to work!) This product keeps me dry and odor free all day. Dove Dry Spray Antiperspirant is the latest beauty trend you don't want to be the last to try! Go to Dove.com/trydry to learn more. #Try Dry




My next gym essential is of course my cell phone and headphones. I love to catch up on my favorite
YouTube videos while I do my cardio. Watching my favorite vloggers during cardio makes the time go by SO quickly. I've even found that it keeps me on the machine longer haha! I used to try to read while working out, but I could never truly get a good cardio workout in if I was able to read while running. Watching something makes it easy to get some intense sessions in.

dove hair serum in oil

My last essential is for my post workout routine. I will normally just use the shampoo and conditioner supplied by the gym. However, in order to do that I have to have a good leave in conditioner or serum to use on my hair afterwards. Right now I'm loving this Dove Regenerative Nourishing Serum. It restores hair and helps make it shine! (I also love this product for traveling as it is small enough to go in a carry-on!)

  17. I use Dove deodorant, but the bar not the spray. I will have to give the spray a try. And I totally agree about watching something during cardio. I've been watching Gossip Girl (I never watched it when it first aired) and that 42 minutes on the elliptical passes quickly! And I look forward to working out just so I can watch it! Win/win
