Heather Dorak’s Top 5 Post-Workout Products

By: Heather Dorak

In busy Los Angeles, for me, and many others in my classes, we don’t have the time to run home to shower and clean up before tackling the next task of the day.  I tend to do errands right after my workout or pop on over to one of my other studios to take care of business or just say hi to some smiling, hard-working faces.  Below are a few of my favorite freshening post-workout picks that’ll leave you beautiful and confident, instead of looking like you just stepped off of a reformer.

6 Must-Have Travel Beauty Products

Sunny from Vegan Beauty Review shares her favorite travel-friendly beauty products to help you look and feel your best without monopolizing precious space in your suitcase.  All of these products are cruelty-free and vegan, so you can feel good about what you’re using.




Pacifica Solar Palette

The Pacifica Solar Palette contains 6 mineral eye shadows, a blush, a bronzer, and 3 of their coconut highlighters.  Sunny recommends bringing an all-in-one palette like this so you aren’t toting around a bunch of products.  She says it saves you time, money, and space.  You can also create both daytime and nighttime looks with this palette so you’re not compromising by bringing just a palette.



EcoTools Mini Essentials Set

EcoTools brushes are made with cruelty-free synthetic Taklon bristles and recycled aluminum, and have a bamboo handle. Sunny recommends the EcoTools Mini Essentials set, which comes with a powder brush, eye shadow brush, and an angled liner brush.  When you’re not travelling, this brush set is great to throw in your purse.

Acure Argan Oil Cleansing Towelettes

The Acure Argan Oil Cleansing Towelettes are biodegradable, natural, and gentle on the skin.  You can use these to remove makeup or to freshen up after your flight or a trip to the hotel gym.  Because they don’t require water, they’re easy to throw in your  carry-on to use when needed.



J.R. Liggett’s Shampoo Bar

Sunny recommends solid shampoo bars because they take up less space and you don’t have to worry about leaking. J.R. Liggett’s Shampoo Bars are 100% biodegradable and contain no sulfates, so they don’t strip the hair of its natural oils.  These bars also contain olive and coconut oil to moisturize, so you don’t need to worry about packing a conditioner as well.

Osea Travel Kit

Sunny suggests purchasing a travel kit for your skincare products to ensure everything is TSA approved.  Her favorite is Osea’s Normal to Dry Skin Travel Kit, which contains a cream cleanser, anti-aging toner, hydrating facial oil, and protection cream.  In addition to being vegan and cruelty-free, Osea products are USDA certified organic.



LUSH Toothy Tabs

Sunny likes LUSH Toothy Tabs because they’re easier than packing a tube of toothpaste.  To use, all you have to do is crunch the tablet between your teeth and begin brushing – the Toothy Tabs will foam up just like your typical toothpaste. The primary ingredient in the tablets is baking soda, which has been shown to help  remove stains from the teeth.
