Beauty Mark It! Gym Essentials

Ever notice that some women step out of the gym looking flawless and done-up, as though they've just left a salon? Others go for a more minimalist look — just a bit of lip balm and they're good to go.

Since I'd like to find a happy medium, I'm wondering which products you throw in your bag for the gym. Do you delve into your full-on beauty routine right there in the locker room, or are there a few essential items you keep handy to fix yourself up after a workout? I think a dry shampoo, like Oscar Blandi Pronto Dry Shampoo is a must-have, but what else?

Share your choices by bookmarking items from around the web and tagging them with the phrase gym essentials. I'll feature your favorites here next Tuesday.

If there is one thing I will grab before heading out for my workout, it's this coveted product!

I don't do the public showering thing. So I just carry some make up removal wipes to clear off the (well-earned) sweat before driving home. (and showering in my own nice, clean bathroom)If I'm feeling frisky I'll throw on some lip gloss too.

I use the Oscar Blandi dry shampoo and I love it. It's great!

I HATE the Oscar Blandi dry shampoo. It is such a waste of money. I'm blonde, so the talc doesn't show up too badly in my hair, but my brunette sister had problems with it. It looked like she had dandruff. Furthermore, no matter how much product I use (I had tried a little and a lot), the product doesn't work. I was really hoping I would get great results because I have greasy hair every morning (I am envious of women who never have to wash their hair!), but I was utterly disappointed with dry shampoo!

I just wanted to say that I've been using the pronto dry shampoo forever and it's great, but recently I got the oscar blandi spray dry shampoo from Sephora, and if it's possible, I love it even more!

I am obsessed with feeling and smelling clean, so when I know I'm going to run errands or get a coffee after a workout I always pack some essentials. I love body cleansing sheets by DHC, Dove daily facials cleansing cloths that self lather, deodorant and Klorane Dry Shampoo.
