Bae-ttling Soreness with Bae Athlete creams

As I get older, I realize that self care and recovery are important. In my younger years, I would just pull my shoes on and head out the door – no dynamic warm-up, no hydration, and afterwards – no stretching. It worked OK for me, but its also part of the reason I probably never really progressed beyond an above average runner. Now I can’t live without pre and post-run activities – or else I just can’t keep up anymore.

The recovery part, to me, is super important. I have found that if I don’t take time to cool down and recovery afterwards, my legs feel heavy for days to come. And that, in return, makes it a challenge to get out the door in following days. Over the past few weeks, I have been trying out some items from Bae Athlete to utilize alongside my stretching and cool down ritual.

Bae Athlete creates innovative skincare products specifically designed for athletes. They seem to understand the unique needs of active individuals, and their commitment to delivering high-quality products shines through in every aspect. This comes in the form of a range of muscle recovery creams that aim to provide effective relief after intense workouts.

Their Muscle Recovery-Day Cream is for athletes seeking instant relief and rejuvenation during the day. It is packed with an abundance of interesting and natural ingredients, such as aloe vera, creatine, and shea butter to provide a cooling sensation and helps soothe tired muscles. I found the formula to be non-greasy formula and absorb quickly after a shower, allowing you to go about your day without feeling sticky or uncomfortable.

The Muscle Recovery-Full Spectrum Evening Cream kicks muscle recovery up a notch by adding in full-spectrum CBD oil. The blend of CBD, shea butter, and essential oils is designed to nourish your muscles while you sleep. The CBD component aims to calming any muscle soreness and promoting a restful night’s sleep.

And their Leg Muscles Recovery Cream focuses on the specific needs of runners and endurance athletes. This cream is specially formulated to target the lower body, providing relief to tired and achy leg muscles.  Whether you’re a marathon runner or a casual jogger, this cream can help alleviate discomfort and enhance your post-run recovery routine.

Bae Athlete’s products are designed to fit seamlessly into your recovery routine, whether it’s applying the day cream before heading out or the evening cream before bed. The packaging is well made and  travel-friendly, allowing you to take your recovery regimen on the go. Plus, their commitment to using natural and ethically sourced ingredients is commendable, catering to those who prioritize clean and sustainable skincare options.

Bae Athlete products are priced at a premium compared to some other muscle recovery creams on the market. While the quality and effectiveness justify the cost for many, it might be a deterrent for budget-conscious runners. Additionally, the presence of CBD in some of the creams might not be up your alley.

I would also personally prefer options for a more subdued smell – perhaps even unscented. These are not bad, by any means, but I know that not everyone wants the lingering smell of mint chocolate or papaya-banana on their bodies.

In conclusion, Bae Athlete has created a range of muscle recovery creams that cater specifically to athletes’ needs. Bae recommended that we test these out for 3 weeks, and we do feel that we saw some nice benefits from doing so. This doesn’t replace cool downs and stretching, but coupled together, our legs have felt surprisingly good after some brutally warm runs.

Bae Athlete is certainly a compelling option for runners and other athletes looking for effective and convenient muscle recovery solutions.
