8 Gym Bag
essentials

With Christine Bullock

The Kayo co-founder and celeb trainer is an expert on getting out of the gym with minimal downtime. Here, she shares the products that keep her post-workout look in shape.

Beauty entrepreneur Christine Bullock is the co-creator of Kayo, an all-natural body range that smooths skin for a firmer, more toned look and feel. She’s also a celebrity trainer with over two decades of experience keeping A-list physiques in shape with patented programs like Evolution20, Body Reborn and Super Shred. Despite her enviable level of fitness—single-leg burpee, anyone?—Bullock never leaves the gym looking like, well, a gym rat.

Impressed and slightly out of breath from the glute workout she made us do, VIOLET GREY begged Bullock to share her post-gym beauty secrets. Ahead, Bullock shares her gym bag essentials, including the best all-natural deodorant, a post-training hair solution, and cleansing wipes (for, uh, anywhere you might need them). If only Pilates gave such immediate results.

An all-natural, aluminium-free deodorant made with the finest food-grade ingredients. Most importantly, it actually works. Coconut oil and avocado butter hydrate, while raw honey gives a light fragrance and has antimicrobial and antiseptic properties.

Perfect for sensitive skin, these wipes are ideal for removing both makeup and sweat. Saturated with cornflower water, they leave skin pleasantly refreshed and hydrated—a must when dealing with air conditioning.

Exercise: does wonders for one’s body, leaves your hair looking a mess. This Yves Durif brush is perfect for post-Soul Cycle detangling. It gently removes knots without causing breakage, and the resin bristles promote circulation at the scalp and distribute oils from the roots to ends.

Since its 2016 launch, Wave Spray by OUAI has become a versatile staple to women’s hair care routines. The spray adds body, activates natural waves, and is infused with rice protein for light hold. In short, it takes your locks from messy to pleasantly undone with only a few spritzes.

Developed by Bullock herself, Kayo’s decadent Body Beauitful Crème uses a face-grade formulation to treat your epidermis from the neck down. The high-performance hydrator restores radiance to the skin with a potent blend of omega oils and hyaluronic acid. Bonus: hints of vanilla and coconut make you feel like you’re sunning on the beaches of Malibu.

No-makeup makeup at its finest. Mercier is the French fairy godmother for anyone who wants to have an even skin tone without a heavy foundation application. Her cult hero Tinted Moisturizer softens lines and gives just a hint of color, and leaves skin dewy and hydrated. It also has an SPF of 20 to prevent future sun damage.

Post-gym beauty is all about small, meaningful tweaks—that’s where mascara comes in. Chantecaille’s chicly packaged offering is enriched with rose oil to condition your lashes, and its peptide-packed formulation lengthens, thickens and plumps lashes in a single swipe. If only pilates gave such immediate results.

When your natural flush fades, RMS Beauty’s Lip2Cheek will help you fake a rosy glow. The organic formula uses minerals to deliver buildable color—from a sheer tint to a rich stain—on both lips and cheeks.
