I love showering at the gym. It’s so much easier to finish my workout, jump in the shower and get ready, than rushing home after a workout and taking the time to shower and get ready at home. I find it saves me so much more time at home where there are distractions and decisions like “what should I wear?” When I’m at the gym, I’ve already decided that and I know I just want to get on with my day.
After 8 years of gym showering, I still had one problem, one thing I hated, about showering at the gym: packing my bag. Don’t get me wrong, packing my bag for the gym isn’t horrible. I mean, I select what I’m wearing, fold it neatly, figure out how to carry my bulky boots, make sure I have everything I need for today’s class, and I’m out.
Except it wasn’t that easy. Gathering my make-up collection was always a problem. I didn’t want to buy two of everything. Afterall, I like to wear different make-up on different days. And, through the years, I’ve collected a lot of favorites of each type of make-up. Plus, when I do my make-up at home, I enjoy the choices (distractions ahead!) but when I was at the gym, I didn’t have an opportunity to enjoy my make-up choices for the day because, usually, I’d stuffed whatever my little make-up bag could hold and hope for the best.
And then there were the many brushes to squeeze in the bag, or stuff them into the bigger gym bag on their own. Clearly, I was letting make-up become a headache.
Then, I found Victoria Jackson (well, the found me because I was sent product samples for this review.) The Victoria Jackson make-up line is created to boost your confidence in your natural beauty, adding a little blush here, a pencil stroke there, and letting the inner beauty shine through.
The Victoria Jackson Foundation duo is a light foundation, perfect to camouflage and even-out your skin, while still letting your inner color and shine, well, shine through.
But what I really love is the Tried & True Victoria Jackson Survival Kit™. The kit is exactly what I need at the gym after my workout and shower. In one little self-contained capsule, I’m carrying
- 2 blush choices,
- two palettes of shadows (10 colors to play with!),
- 5 shades of color (that are each so different from each other that they offer truly different looks,
- a mirror,
- lip pencil,
- eye pencil,
- five brushes and sponges
Y’all. All that fits in my hand. And it’s self contained. It folds up into it self.
Of course, what’s just as important (and probably more) is that the make-up looks good and lasts. The colors are fairly basic — you can make a natural look or add a little drama. It goes on easily and wears well.
I’m telling you, my gym locker room experience is so much easier with this new little kit. And so is my packing-up-for-the-gym experience.
