Today’s fitness kit I’ve reviewed this week is a lovely treat ideal for sporty ladies or fellas: activbod‘s range of skin and body care “smellies” (please tell me my family isn’t alone in using the term “smellies”…)
By the way – stand by for a quite a few reviews over the coming weeks: I get sent lots of lovely stuff to tell you about, but can’t try most of it during competition prep. Thankfully the PRs I know are all patient folk!
activbod is a brand new range of shower products and skin care designed for sports people and gym goers. What’s so special about it? The products are a first for mainstream skincare, made using ground-breaking formulations to help the body pre and post-exercise. And 10% of net profits from activbod sales will go to the the charity Women’s Sport Trust for projects including increasing sports participation.
Get clean, smell nice, and support grass-roots sport… what’s not to love?
Here’s what I got to try:
– ‘Game Changer face scrub’ (a fab face scrub specifically designed to combat redness after a particularly sweaty or outdoor training session)
– ‘Feel Great shower concentrate’ (a small tube of deodorising shower gel which is double-concentrate so you get more from the tube)
– ‘Cooling finish lotion’ (a light minty gel which cools and moisturises)
– ‘Pick Me Up scrub’ (a lovely body scrub which gets rid of sweat and dirt. I loved them all, but particularly liked the face scrub.
The rest of the range includes muscle warmers and even an aroma stick balm to promote mental focus.
All the products smell great (citrus, grapefruit, etc) and really do work well. The entire range is MIT/MI and paraben-free. And the flip-top tubes are the perfect size and design for kit bags and gym bags.
Supporting the Women’s Sport Trust
I tell you what else is great about activbod: it has close links with the Women’s Sport Trust charity (which I fully support, and have blogged about here). The Women’s Sport Trust is a grass roots movement whose aim is to raise the visibility and increase the impact of women’s sport through role models, media coverage and funding. 10% of net profits from activbod sales will be used by for projects that will bring parity to women’s sport – including increasing the profile of female sporting role models and increasing sports participation.
activbod has just launched and will be available in Boots stores and online from activbod’s website
Thanks for the samples, activbod people!
