As part of my 7 in seven weight loss challenge, my goal to loss my last 7 pounds in 7 weeks, it's an understatement to say that I sweat pretty much everyday. Something no one talks about on any fitness program is that the more you sweat, the more easily you seem to sweat. When I was in training for a bodybuilding competition years ago, if I so much as stood up too fast it seemed like I broke a sweat. With all these workouts and running a business I wasn't always able to shower and go, so I needed a way to freshen up in between workouts so I didn't smell like feet and armpits all day. This is where the After Workout Kit by Source Vital Apothecary comes in.
This 4-piece set has everything you'll need post-workout to eliminate body odor, soothe soreness, and give yourself an aromatherapy boost. The kit includes....
Deozein Zest Natural Deodorant Spray (1.01 fl. oz.)Body Wash (2.23 fl. oz.)Sports Balm (2.23 fl. oz.)After Workout MultiSpray (1.01 fl. oz.)
I kept the After Workout Kit in my gym bag throughout my 7 week journey. Below are just a few of my workouts/near death experiences that had me drenched in sweat. Part of being able to recover after a workout is not feeling like the equivalent of a dirty sock after stepping in a puddle. A change of clothes can't make up for sticky skin and funk, so the deodorant and after workout spray were a saving grace. When I could catch a shower before heading to my next stop, I'd use the body wash.

By far the star of this kit for me is the Deozein Zest Natural Deodorant Spray. Some years ago I decided to go as natural as possible in bath and body products, but couldn't make the transition on deodorant. Nothing that I used worked so I was stuck with my clinical grade deodorant that left stains on my shirts. This spray actually works! You have no idea how huge this is for me. I really believed that there was no hope of me using a natural deodorant that could handle my special brand of funk, but this spray worked from day one. The citrus clean scent is also a plus.
The body wash is made with safe natural ingredients and is very mild. The Sports Balm came in handy one day when I did one too many squats. Made with natural Menthol and essential oils including Eucalyptus and Wintergreen, this sports balm is effective in cooling sore muscles, and invigorating the senses. A little bit goes a long way. The After Workout Spray also had a great minty scent, but it was potent enough that I preferred to spray it on my gym bag and in the car.
