yummertimes top gym grooming and beauty essentials for men

Just a few of our favorite things, on-the-go.

Despite wanting to eat our weight in Jack in the Box at 8am every morning (for those of you who follow our IG Stories, you might remember last week’s Sunday breakfast 😛 ), we’ve recently been going to the gym a lot more (reluctantly). Mostly so we can eat more Jack in the Box and pizza, but also with the realization that our bodies require some love and attention every once in a while.

That… and we’re actually just trying to be healthier! SHOCKER.

In an effort to share EVERY PART of our life (our attempt at sarcasm — did it work? :P), we figured we’d share our gym essentials, post-workout! After a quick steam and an even quicker shower, we’ll each spend 10 minutes in the locker room getting ready — no more, no less.

Chris’ post-gym grooming routines looks something like this:

For Chris, it’s all about hydrating every part of his face. First step: applying Dr Jart+’s Dermaclear Micro Water as a toner. Second step: Dr Jart+’s Water Drop Hydrating Moisturizer.

From there, he’ll apply a layer of SPF with Supergoop’s City Sunscreen Serum (SPF 30), use Kiehl’s Facial Fuel Eye De-Puffer (the best he’s found for his own under eyes), and then hydrate his eyebrows with Benefit’s BROWVO! Conditioning Eyebrow Primer. He finishes off styling his hair with Kevin Murphy’s Night Rider Matte Texture Paste.


All said and done, Brock’s routine is a little more thorough 😉

For Brock, hydrating is important as well, but also finding products that don’t leave behind a greasy residue (GROSS!). He’s also drawn to products with a brightening quality like boscia’s Sake Hydrating and Brightening Essence and Drunk Elephant C-Firma Day Serum.

His routine begins with the Hydrating and Brightening Essence followed by RoC Retinol Correxion Eye Cream (a no-frills, time-proven retinol eye cream) and then C-Firma Serum, a unique firming and brightening product with a “reservoir” effect, meaning it remains effective for 72+ hours! After applying Glossier Invisible Shield SPF 35, Brock is done touching his face for the day (until reapplying SPF, of course 😛 ).

After styling with a little R+Co Mannequin Styling Paste to control for any stray hairs, a final spritz of Brock’s favorite fresh, floral scent, Byredo Inflorescence, on the way out of the locker room completes his gym routine 😀
