The Shower Pill...why, its not a pill at all...

Now I have to admit, when I heard “Showerpill” I was envisioning some cool George Jetson-like pill that I could take that would immediately have me feeling as if I’d just had a refreshing, cleansing shower. That was not to be the case but it is still a pretty good product nonetheless.  

The ShowerPill is not a baby wipe, this thing has the heft of a washcloth that makes it easy to use all over your body and its durable enough to last head to toe. After a race and wanting to head out for a meal with friends or that lunch run/ride go a little longer than you expected/ Then this is just the ticket in lieu of a shower. It kills 99.99% of common germs in 30 seconds (that was one of the issues I had, it says on the package to spend 30 seconds on each body part…totaled up, that’s not really fast enough for quick “wipedown”), but gentle enough on your sensitive skin because it contains moisturizing Aloe Vera and Vitamin E.  There’s no rinse needed, it dries quickly and while it does have a smell, its more soap-like than perfumy (yes, I just made that word up).

Yes we’d all like to take a long hot shower after our sweat creating workout of choice but sometimes we just don’t have the time…or the energy. If you’re looking for an individually packaged, self contained “shower in a pouch” to keep in any of your training/racing bags…then this is the product for you (and me). I like them because one package will clean my whole body (I’ve always ended up using half a tub or package of baby wipes to feel clean…and then I smell like a baby) and I can throw them anywhere (a spare or two in the glove box is a must). At $9.99 on Amazon for a box of 10, the Showerpill is an affordable addition to your athlete “must haves” list. And, and, and…Showerpill is offering a deal for Black Friday! They are having a buy 2, get 1 free sale. All you have to do is place 3 boxes of ShowerPill in your shopping cart and enter the code: “SPFRIDAY” to receive the 3rd box free.  This offer is valid from 11/23-11/25 (Friday-Sunday). So...great product…more than affordable…and now you have a gift idea for you or the athlete in your life…BOOM!
