Review & My First Giveaway

"OMG...they don't slip"
I contacted Sweaty Bands to see if I could do a review of their product. I was super excited when they promptly responded with a 'YES'!

I received the above package in the mail. It contained a thin and a thick Sweaty Band. I just love the colors on both! Check out their website to see all of the different types and colors of bands that you can buy!

I chose to wear the thin band b/c I have short hair. Popped it on my head, snapped a few pictures and went for a 6 mile run.
I love how tight fitting it was. It stayed exactly where I placed it on my head for the entire run.It has this velvety material on the inside that makes it non-slip.
Me, post 6 mile run with the band where I placed it!

The leopard print band is one that I purchased a few months ago. I was in love with it when I first got it. I've noticed over time though, that the elastic stretches out and the band becomes not so tight and ends up sliding on your head a little bit. It still does it's job, but I do have to re-place the band on my head every so often. Notice the length difference of the 2 bands. The leopard one has only been worn maybe 8 times. That's really my only complaint about the band.

I'll definitely be wearing my Sweaty Bands again!

Now, for the fun part! I'm going to be doing a giveaway for the thick band!
