JANUARY is a great time to hit the gym because we want to shed some of the extra pounds that have piled up over the Christmas holidays.
While the current cold weather can make it hard to get out of bed before work, these trendy gym bags are sure to make the journey easier.
Meanwhile, our Beauty Editor puts natural deodorants to the test.

- Plush Betty Icon Women’s Toy Bag with Sweat, £98 from sweatybetty.com – buy here
This Sweaty Betty Icon plush suit bag expands to fit a wide range of health essentials, from exercise gear and laundry bags to hair dryers and straighteners.
The padded shoulder bag is the ultimate accessory when you’re on the go but also need to take it on a trip to the gym or class.
While the different pockets are handy for separating underwear, mask and shower cap. The sleek black design also matches most work outfits.
- Kin Yoga studio bag, £38 from kinyogamats.com – buy here
Yogis will love these compact, thick Kin Yoga studio bags because they come with a zip compartment specifically designed for your mat.
As well as two handles, there’s a long, detachable shoulder strap that’s very comfortable, carrying you seamlessly from everyday use to the studio.
The bags come in three colors – black, taupe and a soft pastel pink. The brand also makes gorgeous patterned yoga mats to match (£38, kinyogamats.com).
- Boux Avenue Sport luxury duffle bag, £40, from bouxavenue.com – buy here
The Boux Avenue Sport high-gloss black duffle bag carries the femininity of the standard sports brand with an adjustable bright pink strap.
I was amazed by how much room the bag could hold, allowing me to change into several clothes and a variety of hair products in the shower.
Online orders arrive beautifully packaged in a pink box and tissue, making them ideal gifts.

- GoBo Natural Aluminum Free AHA Deodorant, £9.99, 50ml from amazon.com – buy here
This smart product uses pH-altering glycolic acid to kill odor-causing bacteria, so you don’t have to worry about any strong scents, good or bad.
The gentle exfoliating acid also helps prevent ingrown hairs. I like the watery consistency because you don’t notice it on your stains like thicker creams do and it doesn’t stain clothes either.
It has replaced my antiperspirant, and I can’t find myself swapping places any time soon.
- Natural aluminum-free coconut deodorant, £13 57g from koparibeauty.co.uk – buy here
Perfect for even the most sensitive underarms, the blend of anti-bacterial sage oil, moisturizing coconut oil and coconut water soothes dark underarms while fighting unwanted odour.
The beach scent is my favorite, but there are six to choose from, including the non-built-in.
The no-mess consistency keeps you guessing about how much to apply and is great for on-the-go workouts, which you’ll need if you’re a regular gym goer or prone to sweating , as it doesn’t last all day.

LUXURY – AKT Deodorant Nourishing Lotion, £18.50ml from aktlondon.com – buy here
The consistency takes a while to get used to but you only need a pea-sized amount, so the tube will last a long time.
If you don’t like getting your hands dirty, then The Application, £26, also from aktlondon.com, is a must-have option. I like the fact that it’s plastic free.
There are three scents, which are gorgeous, last all day long and get rave reviews. However, I will save them when I feel like I like a little luxury.
