A while back I wrote a blog post about a deodorant I was asked to try out. Well, you can call me a superblogger now, as I think I’ve made my own market. In the past few months I’ve been sent a few other “smell better now” products to try out and thought I’d share my thoughts with you all.
First I tried some more deodorant. I was sent some Sure Compressed that is the same sh*t different bottle (my marketing slogan not theirs) It’s compressed and thus smaller so can fit in your gym bag. I kept it at work in my desk drawer for all those post-lunchtime pilates & yoga classes, but they sent me one that has a “bright” scent so stinks up my clothes and I now only use it for emergencies.
Then I was sent some laundry sachets. I don’t think my laundry smells more than the average person, but there is a lot more of it. These surcare sachets worked a charm for my whites, darks, and workout loads. I usually pick laundry detergent by price (as long as it’s non-bio) so wouldn’t recommend one over the other, but at least these work.
But what good does deodorant & laundry detergent do if you yourself don’t smell like… a roast chicken (?!?) Radox sent me some of their Lemon & Thyme body wash to try out after those especially smelly long runs during marathon training. Now, I’m a loyal mint bodywasher, so to try lemon and thyme felt a bit like cheating but it did the job and got me clean without any awful flowery smells.
I’m still on the lookout for a footspray sponsor, could definitely use a dry shampoo sponsor, and if I’m truly going to be the cleanest superblogger out there then we’re going to have to talk fully-sponsored spa days.
In all seriousness I find my normal washing tablets + crappy old washing machine aren’t enough for my smelly gym kit. A friend recommend a little bit of Milton (Baby bottle steriliser) in each wash and it works a dream.
Hilarious. I am stumped by the bio/non-bio thing. And that all detergents in the UK seems to have strong scents? For dry shampoo, I recommend Lush’s product; it smells nice although it is a bit messy.
Ha, hilarious! Posts like this are why you’re a superblogger to me.
Brilliant, just read this! I struggle getting my gym kit clean enough so always looking for tips!
