We don't have to tell you there's nothing quite like that post-workout glow. But as fresh-faced as you might feel after completing a killer HIIT or spin class, sometimes you still crave a little makeup touch up here and there before strolling into the office or grabbing brunch. But if you're anything like us, you dread toting around a full makeup kit to the gym. If this scenario sounds far too familiar, listen up. We just spotted two of the coolest travel-ready tools to cut down on your gym bag clutter
Real Techniques took the magic of their best-selling sponges and put them in the most compact, gym bag-ready tools ever. The Miracle Remedy Sponges ($5.99, Target) kit contains two unique sponge heads that are made to be used dry for those quick touch ups. The sponges themselves are geared toward two areas that often require a little TLC: the under eye area and the cheeks.
First, you get the Eye Miracle Remedy Sponge, which has a pointed tip to get into the creases and corners of the eye area. This sponge is ideal for touching up or applying concealer to revive those peepers. (Bonus points: It's also a quick fix for wiping away any fall out from a quick mascara swipe!) We're loving that this can quickly help with applying a dab of our fave concealer to hide those dark circles or bags that maybe didn't quite disappear from waking up for that 7 A.M. Pilates class.
Next, you've got the Finish Miracle Remedy Sponge. Now, this rounded-head sponge is a good pick for helping to tone down those post-workout flushed cheeks. Or conversely, if you're the type who needs to add a little life back into the cheeks after a good workout, this sponge can be a quick do-it-all to use with bronzer, blush, or your favorite highlighter.
But what really has us pumped for these mini sponges is the compact design of them. You actually place the cap of the sponges on the opposite end to create the handle. Plus, the plastic capsule design not only keeps the sponge tips sanitary in your bag, but it also makes them about the size of a lipstick bullet! It doesn't get more travel-friendly that that.
You can shop the new duo of sponges right now for $5.99 at realtechniques.com. It's safe to say you know what we're adding to our gym bag this week!
