My Gym & Hiking Body Essentials ft. SweetSpot Labs

Posted on 3 m read

Now that things are starting to look more in place at home, David and I recently found a gym to join nearby. Keeping up with a fitness routine was a bit of a challenge in LA because we didn’t live conveniently close to a gym and didn’t want to sit in traffic for up to an hour to get to one. Luckily, the one we joined in Palm Springs is just a five minute drive from us! In addition to working out at the gym, I also enjoy the different classes offered, such as yoga, pilates, and body sculpting. This new routine inspired me to put together a handy gym bag which I also take on hikes when I feel like exploring the outdoors! Today, I’m sharing some products by SweetSpot Labs that I can’t leave the house without on an active day.

With temperatures rising up into the triple digits here in the desert, staying clean and fresh is crucial. The extreme heat has caused my skin to become a lot drier… to the point where I will shed and peel like my lizard! It’s sort of scary and not so pretty. So, keeping my skin hydrated and using products with natural ingredients is important to me. SweetSpot’s Neroli Mandarin Gentle Wash and Neroli Mandarin On-The-Go Wipes work hand-in-hand perfectly to give my body the TLC it deserves and keep it clean, hydrated, and feeling soft.

NEROLI MANDARIN GENTLE WASH

Firstly, this wash is not only super gentle and refreshing, it also has a really delightful tropical scent. I feel like I’m on a summer getaway every time I use it! Made of coconut derived cleansers, this cleanses the body without stripping it of the essential oils. It is also infused with skin softening emollient oils of apricot kernel and sunflower, and panthenol, an ingredient that softens the skin.

I like to use this wash after an intense fitness class or gym session. It’s safe for everyday use all over the body, and it’s a bonus that the pretty packaging adds nice color in my bathroom. It’s also travel-friendly, which makes it ideal to pack into my gym bag. Since it’s so gentle, I never have to worry about it causing my skin to flake. In fact, my skin is always feeling soft and supple after I use it!

NEROLI MANDARIN ON-THE-GO WIPES

These on-the-go wipes are seriously must-haves. I have a pack in my car, another in my regular purse, and one in my gym bag! These wipes are made with 98% natural ingredients, are clinically tested, and are gynecologist recommended. Not only are these wipes perfect for an instant refresh after the gym, they are LIFESAVERS when you’re hiking and sweating in the desert heat.

Having these handy allows me to quickly clean up before brunch if I don’t have time to go home and shower first. They smell so good — even my friends have asked me what scent I have on. These days, I don’t wear much perfume so the answer’s got to be these Neroli Mandarin wipes! It’s relieving to know that I can smell fresh throughout the day without having to take multiple showers a day due to the scorching weather here.

I love that these wipes are super versatile. Not only are they useful at the gym or during/after a long hike, they’re nice for gals to keep around to refresh your sweet spot during your period or a night out. The aloe, cucumber, pineapple, and cranberry extracts in these wipes leave me feeling fresh and fabulous all day long!

    I could definitely use these wipes! I find that they are most useful in the summer since it’s always so hot and I’m always outdoors. Thanks for sharing 🙂

    Gonna have to look into those wipes. I always have some kind of post workout protein in my bag, can’t go without it.

    The wipes sounds perfect! I’m a Mom of littles and I use baby wipes on them for everything. I love that these are scented! I could see myself using these in the summer to feel refreshed after a sweaty day. BTW your photos are stunning!

    Sweet everything, these wipes are exactly what I’ve been needing. As much as I love to know sweat means I’m doing something, I also enjoy those little moments I don’t smell like an armpit. I feel like in the very near future these should be everywhere I go. Work locker, back pack, car, home, someone elses home. I was drawn to this because I need to put together a gym bag, but now I’m here for the smell goods!

  • Thomas Falkenstedt
    May 6, 2017

    At first I thought I need some of these wipes too, but then I realized it’s for areas I don’t have and had a bit of a chuckle as I thought they were for basically any parts of your body. Oh well, I don’t know if they’ve tested that on like armpits or anything, but I could be the first one out there, haha. As for my gym essentials I actually have a hair mask in my bag that I put on twice a week after working out (as I also sit in the sauna to relax my muscles after a workout and the heat combined with the hair mask is perfect). But considering you basically live in a sauna you don’t need the extra heat. 🙂

    Neroli Mandarin sounds like it would smell good. It’s awesome to know you can get this from Target!

    • Sharon Wu
      May 13, 2017

      Sounds divine! And yes, they are readily available at Target which I love!

  • You look amazing, I love your workout outfit! Convenience is definitely a factor when choosing gyms. Mine isn’t that far from my place – about 15min with no traffic, but my boyfriend and I tend to get lazy if it’s really gross outside. But we do travel by motorcycle so weather is a pretty big factor when it comes to driving lol.

    • Sharon Wu
      May 13, 2017

      Thank you Maria! Yes, convenience is like top priority because I would hate to sit in traffic for an hour just to get to the gym only to be exhausted before I even work out LOL.

      Thanks! Yes, I’m so glad I can get to the gym in under 10 minutes now!

  • Candace
    May 6, 2017

    Feminine wipes, deodorant and body wash (because there’s a shower at my gym) are all must haves in my gym bag. I find that these are the items I reach for most and always come in handy, even for other girls in my classes who may have forgotten theirs. Driving an hour to go the gym is crazy! Glad you found a place more local to work out 🙂

    First of all you look amazing! I am glad you found such a close gym nearby and I am sure that being out in the desert also calls for lots of fun hikes with your new dog too. I am all about wipes and these from Sweetspot look great. I am always on the go too so these sound perfect for me for a quick wipe down after a workout and before running errands. I need to try this wash as well. The scent sounds so lovely and I love that it is for face and body and made with great ingredients like coconut oil not to strip our natural oils. Thanks for sharing this brand with me! xoxo, Christine

      Thanks babe! S’mores doesn’t do so well in the extreme heat since pugs have trouble breathing but we take him on hikes anyway. Lucky for him he’s got a strong daddy who can carry him the rest of the way once he’s exhausted lol!

    These sound great and those wipes seem multi=purpose. Since they’re great for carrying with you, I’d use them to wipe down things aside from my face (like the toilet haha) and sweat when it’s a really hot day. I also love a good face mist when it’s just too hot to handle outside.
