Review: ShowerPill - Athletic Body Wipe

I have seen ShowerPill Athletic Body Wipes popping up all over the place. Since I consider myself someone who sweats a lot, I'm always on the lookout for products that I can use after a workout when I don't have a chance to shower right away. Like when you exercise after work and still have errands to do. Or after a race, when you want to hang out with friends and maybe go out to eat. Needless to say, I was pretty excited to get the chance to try them out for myself. 

Here's the story of ShowerPill in a nutshell:
A couple of college athletes who were always busy, busy, busy and had very little time to squeeze in a shower after working out decided to create an instant hygiene supplement after one of them was exposed to bacterial meningitis. The name is a reference to how they jokingly wished there was a quick little pill to take to become instantly clean.

Each wipe is individually packaged making it simple to carry in a gym bag. The package is easy to open and can conveniently store the used wipe until you can throw it away. 

The body wipe is large (9"x8") and thick. The directions recommend keeping the "wipe folded" and using "each side on a different body part." I, on the other hand, immediately opened it all the way and used it more like a wash cloth. The cloth was cool and moist, and after wiping around my neck, I felt instantly clean and fresh. 

It's hard to describe how it smells, but it's basically fresh. Since it's a product for both men and women, I'm guessing the guys at ShowerPill picked a neutral scent. Personally, I would want to use it more if it did have a feminine fragrance.

I already use a facial wipe and in the past I have just used a plain towel to wipe off the rest of my body after a run. Driving home or heading to one of the kids' sporting events with sweat still lingering on me is uncomfortable and gross. I can easily see myself using these in the future.

  1. Ive seen these.
    Im buying these.


  2. I'm buying them too!!!! I think I'll buy a box for each of my running girls too.

  3. I love these, so perfect for anyone on the go!

  4. I like hearing that there is a fresh smell. Too many products are trying to be scented and it just becomes overwhelming.

  5. These have been getting such great reviews I have to try them!

  6. Another good product to try is the body wipe from Paper Shower. They are even bigger and also have a dry towel so you feel fry and dry.


I love comments!
