Who’s ready to get their workout on? In the case that you are, I have some brand new makeup and skincare products from elf Cosmetics that are pretty darned ingenious. I have to hand it to elf Cosmetics to always coming up with some new additions to their product line, the latest of which is elf ACTIVE, sweat-resistant products that are designed to enhance your workout experience.
Exercise is one of my greatest pleasures in life. I love a good workout! In fact, during my current downtime, not being able to run around both at the gym and with my son outdoors is a challenge!
While I don’t wear makeup while working out at the gym, I do have great respect and admiration for those of you who can pull it off. I won’t say that I’ll necessarily wear the cream palette or mascara during my gym workouts, I’m impressed enough with the mascara to let it give my lashes a boost while I’m exercising outdoors.
The elf ACTIVE collection includes the following products:
elf ACTIVE Workout Ready Lip & Cheek Palette ($8) – I’m wearing the highlighter on the high planes of my face (see my highlighting/strobing tutorial here) in the photo above, along with a mix of the creams on my fc
Sweat Resistant Mascara & Brow Duo ($6) – So, a bit of a tired mommyitis confession. I fell asleep with this mascara on my lashes after a long day and kept in on for much of the next. And it still looked great!!!! And it wasn’t a pain to remove! Score! Tired mommyitis confession over!
Workout Ready Hydration Stick ($8) – I don’t necessarily need a hydration stick while I’m at the gym, however, this is cooling and will be nice for hot days when I do like a little something to cool down under my eyes.
Post-Workout Cleansing Body Wipes ($3) – Not being able to shower after a workout happens, which is why these wipes come in HANDY!!! I put these in the back of my car in case either me or my son needs to use them.
Post-Workout Cooldown Mist ($8) – Another product that will definitely come in handy after outdoor workouts – sometimes you need a little mist! This is also a nice makeup fixative, FYI.
In addition to these products, there’s also an eye pencil that’s available. The new elf Massaging Facial Cleanser ($20) isn’t part of this collection, but it came with my package so I thought to include it in this review, because there’s nothing more important than cleansed skin, especially after a sweat-inducing workout!
This battery-operated device reminds me of the Foreo Luna, which is on the right in the photo. elf’s version is slender and easier to get into the nooks and crevices of your face. It doesn’t have the same feeling as the Foreo Luna, nor my beloved Clarisonic, but it’s also not half bad. At $20 it’s a pretty good price to try out one of these devices.
My Final Thoughts: elf ACTIVE has a couple of keepers! I’m intrigued by this workout-ready line of beauty products and for sure recommend trying out the mascara, wipes and lip and cheek palette.
