What's In My Gym Bag Featuring Crimes of Beauty and EO

I feel like my posts have been very fitness heavy recently, but I am obsessed and I'm not apologizing lol. Now generally I don't put a ton of products in my gym bag, but these things come in handy on Thursday nights. Almost every Thursday my friend and I go to hot yoga, shower at the gym, and then head out in town for some dinner. It's tradition to get appetizers at our favorite Mexican restaurant. 
Recently I received a few samples that have been incredibly handy for these days at the gym. Keep reading if you want to find out about my cruelty free gym bag essentials. 
I finally bought myself a yoga mat bag, I own one from Citrus Fitness. I bought this bag particularly because it features both an inner and outer pocket. There is a large mesh one inside which I fit my cosmetic bag in, and one on the outside that I usually slip my phone inside while I am in class. There is enough room in the bag for me to stuff my mat, mat-sized towel, hand towel, coconut water, and a change of clothes-- If I'm strategic with my placement. 
The cosmetic bag I have been toting to the gym is this adorable one from Crimes of Beauty. Crimes of Beauty has a large selection of bags to choose from and they are all very affordable. I also think this one is fab "I Like My Rose Chilled and My Highlight Lit". Thanks Crimes of Beauty, I very much believe that throwing on a coat of mascara makes all the difference most days! 
Inside my cute little pouch is Lush's Tea Tree Toner (x), EO Organic Deodorant Wipes, Argan Oil of Morocco Shampoo, and CBD Pain Relieving spray (x). Whenever I shower at the gym these are my go to's! For soap I either use what the gym provides or my CBD cleanser, I try to pack light and shower quickly (gym rules) so sometimes it's easier to use what's provided, although I try to stick with my cruelty free options. 
I have reviewed most of these products at one point or another, if you're interested in reading more about them click the 'x' next to each product.  
One of the products I haven't spoken about yet are EO's deodorant wipes. They kindly sent me their tea tree version. This product is USDA certified organic, GMO free, cruelty free, biodegradable, and free of synthetic fragrance. I used this the other night before hot yoga to test it's effectiveness. Now, obviously you're going to sweat like crazy while practicing hot yoga, for those of you who never tried it it's comparable to doing yoga in a sauna. My studio heats their yoga room up to 104 degrees Fahrenheit. While I did sweat during yoga, I felt very fresh and not as gross afterwards. Hot yoga is odd because you kind of feel gross after sweating so much, but you feel amazing because you sweat out a lot toxins, got in a good workout, and maybe feel more aligned. I would definitely recommend these wipes. They're more convenient than the average stick of deodorant, are hygienic since they are one time use, and very lightweight-- great to throw in a purse for touch ups or to use before a workout.
