This non-greasy mix of essential oils is a great pre-work and post-gym addition. Don’t let the paint-like look put you off - it soothes tired muscles, while seaweed extract supplies vitamins and minerals to tired skin. It doesn’t smell much like seaweed, though, which is probably a good thing.

Training can take its toll, so Champneys’ therapists (probably with the help of some brainy scientists) have designed a formula to rest and relax muscles with deep-soothing and tension-relieving properties. It smells a lot better than Deep Heat too.
