As dyed-in-the-wool girly girls, we drift toward grooming products that are prettily packaged, sweetly scented, or cutely named. But what’s even better is when a product actually works. Which is why we’re embracing our inner tomboy this summer and stocking up on sweat-fighting goodies from Raw Materials.
Okay, so the Chicago-based line is really intended for men — but who says you can’t “borrow” your favorite guy’s grooming products? Released just in time for the dog days, the Summer Sports Pack ($31.85) gives you everything you need to ward off the nasty aftereffects of a jog in July. Wrapped in a sleek black case, the set includes the Sport Fix Soap, the Face Stick, and the Sport Spray Odor Wipe Out (this is where we could’ve used a euphemism, but what’s in a name?). The all-natural products are made with ingredients like clover flower, sunflower oil, and rosemary, and they’re fragrance-free and totally effective.
In fact, the folks at Raw Materials tested the products on the sweatiest of species — wildlife sport enthusiasts — before releasing them. So, if these items can help some dude climb a mountain and emerge funk-free, we’re pretty sure they’ll get you through a volleyball session on North Avenue beach.
