ShowerPill Athletic Body Wipe - Product Review & Coupon Code

When I first heard about ShowerPill Athletic Body Wipe I was intrigued. When I got the opportunity to try the product, I was eager. When I first used the product, I fell in love....at first wipe.

But let's step back a moment. The ShowerPill Athletic Body Wipe is a single use wipe that is intended to be used after exercise to clean you up a bit, and kill some germs, if you don't have the time to shower immediately. For some, this may not be a scenario you find yourself in very often and at first, I figured this would be ideal post race when you want to hang out a little longer at the after party and feel refreshed. But I quickly realized, I often find myself in the situation where there is a delay from running time to shower time. Truth be told, there are some weekends I run at the gym with darling daughter and we just skip my shower time to allow us to get onto other pressing matters of the day. A quick wipe would be awesome! Especially one that makes you feel refreshed and clean.

Ironically, I never thought about using any other wipe such as baby wipes and now that I have tried the ShowerPill Athletic Body Wipe, I wouldn't dream of using a substitute. Not all wipes are indeed created equal and I have had years of experience of various wipes being the mom of a 4.5 year old.

The first thing I noticed about the ShowerPill Athletic Body Wipe is that it is thick and durable. It didn't tear about and felt more like a cloth than a standard wipe. This was nice. And it was big. Their website says 9x8 inches and I believe it but honestly, didn't pull out a ruler. It was larger than my hand and by the way, they suggest using different sides for wiping different parts of your body to avoid just rubbing bacteria around.

By why am I talking bacteria? Because this wipe has some antibacterial elements to it but also contains aloe to keep your skin soft. There is a scent but it is very subtle and nice. And most importantly, it doesn't feel heavy on your skin later. I am really picky about what goes on my skin. You can often find me rinsing lotion off my skin after applying since I don't like the residue feeling. This wipe leaves me feeling clean, refreshed, and perhaps a bit less stinky. Now for sweaty running clothes, it doesn't help that but hey, no one or nothing can do everything!

Of course, after falling in love with the product I was determined I wanted more and can totally see me having this in my purse/gym bag for whenever I need it. So I "hopped" on over to their website to see how much a box costs. The orders go through Amazon.com at this link. It says the list price is $14.99 but is selling for $9.99 and there are 10 wipes in a box. This comes to as little as $1.49 or $0.99 a wipe and I can so much do that! It is nice when you love a product and can afford it!!

And guess what? I have great news! ShowerPill is offering my readers the chance to Buy two (2) and get one (1) FREE at a special Black Friday sale at amazon.com. You will need to put three boxes in your cart and enter the code: SPFRIDAY to activate the coupon. This coupon is only valid from 11/23/12-11/25/12 so mark your calendars! I know I will be and am already thinking this will be a great stocking stuffer for my spearfishing and surfing stepson!

Daily Gratitude: I am thankful for the opportunity to try new products.
Daily Affirmation: I am lovable.

  3. I've used baby wipes in a pinch before. Something designed for sweaty adults seems like a great idea, though I'm not sure I can see myself spending money for the upgrade, especially when I don't expect it to happen that often.
