One of the (many) perks about being a part of the Brooks I.D. program is that I have the opportunity to test out different products from different companies. My latest goodie box/pleasant surprise was from Jack Black, Authentic and Original. I was ecstatic to receive this in the mail:
|Performance Ready Set|
Honestly, this stuff is amazing and I’m pretty sure I have a huge crush on Jack Black (and no, I’m not referring to the acting variety, although he is pretty funny)
Turbo Wash Energizing Cleanser – I can’t get enough. It’s made with 3 delicious things: Rosemary, Eucalyptus, and Juniper Berry. I mean, who wouldn’t like it?! But other than the obvious, the Turbo Wash really is energizing. I don’t enjoy waking up early, but I do like showering with Turbo Wash; one whiff of eucalyptus and I’m instantly happy!
Dragon Ice Relief & Recovery Balm – Pain and muscle relief without feeling greasy or making my hands unusable for hours. When I say “unusable” I’m referring to what happened when I used the other brands – when, in an unfortunate turn of events, I touched my eye and suffered until the gel wore off, or when I unintentionally received “pain relief” on body parts that didn’t hurt, simply by brushing the spot. When I want pain/muscle relief I don’t want the rest of my body to suffer. Dragon Ice does the trick – it feels great going on (it’s not greasy) and doesn’t hinder me to from doing everyday things (e.g., scratching my eye).
Sun Guard Sunscreen SPF 45 – I’m 50% Irish, have lots of freckles and seriously don’t want skin cancer! Sun Guard Sunscreen rocks my fair skins’ world! It’s very water resistant and very sweat resistant. This is especially important when I do triathlons because I apply sunscreen before the swim but need it to last the entire race. I’m looking forward to using it more as the weather warms up.
Intense Therapy Lip Balm SPF 25 – I’m kind of obsessed with lip balm, meaning that I like to try out (and eventually buy) every brand and have secret stashes all over my house, work, purse, etc. So, I was especially excited to try a lip balm that I didn’t have to buy. Like the products listed above, the Intense Therapy Lip Balm did not fail! All I can say is, wow!! – this lip balm is awesome for running in cold and windy conditions (read: Virginia for the last 3 months).
A huge thanks to Brooks and Jack Black for partnering together – I’m excited to test out other Jack Black products in the future. In the meantime, I’m dreaming about these:
Industrial Strength Hand Healer
Body Rehab Scrub & Muscle Soak
Dry Down Friction-Free Powder
Have you had the opportunity to try Jack Black products? Do you have a favorite?
