Lululemon addicts struggling to not spend their entire paycheck on the brand’s stylish-yet-functional gear are about to have a new problem on their hands. Already dominating active guys’ wardrobes with their cool and comfortable clothes to sport both in and out of the gym, Lululemon now hopes to take over their Dopp kits with a line of self-care products.
“Over the years, we’ve heard from athletes, our ambassadors, and our community that transitioning from sweat to life requires specific solutions,” says Sun Choe, Chief Product Officer at Lululemon. “Lululemon has always been in the work of creating solves for sweaty problems and our Selfcare line is an extension of that approach.”
After a grueling workout, you might feel great with swole muscles and a boost of energy, but chances are, you look like hell with sweaty, flushed skin and some next-level body odor. It’s that “Yikes!” moment when you catch your less-than-stellar appearance in the locker room mirror and realize you still have a busy day ahead.
At Men’s Health, we editors know the serious sweat struggle; squeezing workouts into our jam-packed schedules of long hours at the office, meetings around town, and evening press events. So, when we heard about Lululemon’s new line that includes a moisturizer, deodorant, and lip balm, we quickly jumped at the chance to put them to the test. After a few weeks armed with the new Selfcare line, we’re fairly certain you’ll be glad to spend your hard-earned dollars on these products, too—no sweat.
After a workout, the last thing I want to do is slather on thick, rich face lotion that’ll feel greasy and add extra shine. Thankfully, this lightweight moisturizer quickly absorbed into my skin with a matte look that made me almost forget I put anything on. The Tri-Active formula did wonders for calming post-workout redness, while making my skin feel completely hydrated and smooth. Plus, the compact packaging makes it perfect to throw in my gym bag with a locking top that prevents any liquid from leaking onto my gear. For guys who hate the feeling of skincare products on their face, but want to prevent dry skin, this one is a total winner. -Adam Mansuroglu, Senior Style & Gear Editor
“Remember AXE body spray from your old locker room nightmares? This new Lululemon spray will remind you why you loved the idea of a spray-on deodorant without the cloying, overpowering smell that came with the aforementioned product. The refined scent is suited to your grown up lifestyle, giving you a convenient way to stay fresh.” -Brett Williams, Associate Fitness Editor
“I’m picky about lip balm, and this one actually impressed me. The formula is lightweight and easily absorbs into the skin. Your lips are left super-soft without that greasy, heavy feeling. Since using this lip balm, I can’t even remember the last time my lips felt chapped.” – Melissa Matthews, Health Writer
