Fans of Lululemon's Activewear are lucky: Now you can apply Lulu to your body, hair and face as well. The sports brand recently launched its first beauty trial with a new selfcare line that includes a dry shampoo, a lip balm, a moisturizer and a deodorant.
Unlike an average beauty line, this sweaty face and body is made up of ingredients such as tapioca starch that absorbs excess oil, and moisturizing ingredients such as shea butter and coconut oil. Each product is designed to be unisex in both fragrance and packaging ̵
Only a few drops of deodorant kept me fresh for hours.
Being the type of person who always feels as fresh as possible (and smells!), My expectations for the deodorant were. I've recently become a fan of spray deodorants, so the formulation of Lululemon's was just right for me. I've tested both fragrances of the brand's anti-stink deodorant – Black Pepper Sandalwood and Aloe – during various workouts . None of the deodorants were overly fragrant when I applied them, and they had a dry, cooling sensation on contact (which is excellent for people with overactive forearms like mine).
In addition, the formula is completely made of aluminum. free, and I never had the feeling that I'm piling my pits with product to stay fresh while I'm working up a sweat. Instead, it is made with ingredients such as zinc ricinoleate, a natural salt that contributes to odor absorption, and shea butter and coconut oil to keep moisturizing the forearms . All I needed was a few splashes on each side, and I was ready to push my training to the extreme – without fear of musty pits. Although admittedly I was a bit skeptical of how fresh the products would hold me at the end of my workout (they literally had the feeling of spraying a light dry shampoo!), I was able to move my arms with the utmost care I trust that I will not offend my fellow travelers with my stench. Bonus: It's clear, so I never had to worry about deodorant stains on my clothes.

The spill-proof top of the moisturizer was perfect for carrying in my sports bag.
After I washed my face, I applied the brand's Sweat Reset Face Moisturizers, whose yellow-based formula felt super light on my combination skin. Even before I pumped out the product, I was impressed with its closure, which meant I did not have to worry about it being spilled in my bag when I threw it in the gym after a shower. Like many products in this line, I would like to use this moisturizer every day – light enough not to feel greasy or masky, but moisturizing as if I had dipped my face in the creamiest moisturizer. 19659014] each .

My lips stay dry, so the moisturizing lip balm has always been considered useful.
One of my favorite aspects of Lululemon's Basic Balm aside from its non-sticky feel, is its soft-touch applicator that feels like you're applying the balm with your fingertip (but not scary). I also loved how the balm instantly moisturized my lips without overly glossing or glowing.
After applying one or two wipes, I did not have to re-apply myself for hours – but I did it anyway because I did not want because I had to. The balm consists of moisturizing ingredients such as shea butter, jojoba oil and beeswax, which explains how great and soft my lips felt after I applied them. Now, even when I am not exercising, I always feel ready when my lips feel slightly dehydrated. Goodbye, peel your lips!

After several days of training, the dry shampoo gave me a second wind after my greasy scalp.
I'm not a hardcore dry shampoo user, but for moments when I wear my natural hair in a protective style – braids, twists, and the like – it can be especially challenging after a workout Scalp needs some care, it is very convenient. The best thing about this dry shampoo? It left no unpleasant residue in my hair and helped it smell clean (and feel clean) without washing.

The Bottom Line:
After testing the entire product line, I was pleasantly surprised at how effective they were both before and after training. No matter how sweaty I became (even after a hot yoga class ), I still felt clean – not to say that I was not ready to take a shower as soon as possible.
