Shop → Bumble and bumble Pret-a-Powder Dry Shampoo $27.00

“Don’t have time to wash your hair after a workout? No problem! I use this dry shampoo to absorb any sweat and add some extra volume to limp locks. Added bonus, the subtle rose scent is beautiful and lingers long after I’ve applied it.”

Shop → Simple Micellar Cleansing Water Wipes $7.99

Micellar water is a beauty staple for me, effectively removing makeup, dirt and impurities, so my skin is left fresh, clean and glowing. And these wipes are always in my gym bag as they’re super convenient for freshening up post-workout. I especially love that they contain no artificial perfumes, colours or harsh chemicals, which could irritate my sensitive skin.”
