BondiBand Giveaway! [Closed]

6.03.2014


I am super pumped to be chosen to partner with BondiBands for a review and giveaway as part of a SweatPink ambassador campaign. Hosting a BondiBand giveaway wasn't even a question for me. I've been obsessed with their running headbands ever since I picked one up at a race expo in 2012. (You can see my first "review" post here.)

I've tried a few different running headbands, and this one is by far superior to anything I've worn before. This is just my opinion, of course, but I highly recommend them. 
Why? 

First of all, I love that you can get them in almost any color you can imagine, plain or with a fun saying.

Also, they come in handy during colder runs. They really do help keep my ears warm! The pulled-over-the-ears look isn't Jordan's favorite, but hey. Comfort > fashion. Amen.

Finally, I have crazy sideburn issues, and I love how I can pull them and stretch them to get my hair under control without worrying about them breaking or feeling like I'm cutting off circulation to my very important brain.

Here's a view of the back:

These are machine washable. My personal recommendation is to air dry them if possible, but I don't always remember to do that, and it's fine. I've just noticed a tiny bit of shrinkage with repeated machine dryer use.

BondiBands don't give me headaches or slip off my head, which you runners probably know is so important. The catch is that you have to wear them pulled over your hairline. Some people don't like that "look," but again, these are so comfortable I don't really care how it looks. Another cool thing about the company is that they donate 10% of their profits each year to charity.

Today I'm giving away one BondiBand to two winners! Enter using the giveaway tool below.   US residents only. If you don't win, use the code SWEATPINK for 10% off through June 28!

Winner will be chosen on 6/7. Entry will be verified. Good luck!
UPDATE: Congratulations to Robyn and Kindra!

*Disclaimer: I did receive free BondiBands to review and give away, but all opinions are my own.

I am not a fan of sweating, but I run anyway. :)

Emily said...

I love running and doing Crossfit and Crossfit-imitation workouts.

Our Pretty Little Girls said...

Whoa, I really need to get a headband! I am so "gangsta" with my bandanas, lol.

Becky said...

This may be obvious but my favorite way to sweat is running! A cool brisk morning with the sun shining, I'm all over it!!

Nikki S said...

Great pictures! I love the Bondi Bands I received!

Raige Creations said...

Running, for sure. I love the sweat that goes with running.
I like the sweat from swimming too but that is not as noticeable and I don't need a headband for that.
But running, yes. (And I have sideburn issues as well, they annoy me, I need to reign them in!

Robyn B said...

i got a bondiband from your earlier review and LOVE it! i hate wearing most headbands because they make my ears hurt or get in the way so i can't wear sunglasses or move around too much, etc. but my bondiband is amazing! my favorite way to sweat is biking or running :)

Anne Gillie said...

I have never been able to find a headband that stays put!

Stacey Mathis said...

Def want to try one!!

Sarah said...

Run, run, runnin!

Courtney Rose said...

For some strange reason I love sweating on the stair machine at the gym. Weird I know, but I always feel like I got an amazing workout from it! HA!

Lauren said...

Every headband I've ever used for running/tennis eventually slides off my head. And then my hair is just plain scary. I'd love to try one!

Marisa M said...

I've heard many good things about Bondi Bands. I've always wanted to try one...

Rebecca Jo said...

I love how stretchy they look - comfy. Not giving me a head band headache - that's the worst! & big enough not to pop off the head.

Katie said...

running! I need one of these!!!

Ali said...

I've been wanting to try BondiBand since I started reading your blog. I think that was the second post I read, right after your "10 Things I Learned from My First 3 Years of Running" post. Sadly, I haven't bought one yet, but I need one! I have crazy bangs that always stick out of regular headbands and make me look like Medusa. Great giveaway!

Ali said...

Favorite way to sweat is running :o)

Shelley said...

i just bought a couple of these before the Pig and I LOVE them! they are my go to headbands for running and working out now. even my husband grabs one when he's out doing yardwork!

Caroline said...

I run, walk, lift weights, and swim - so I would love another one :) Love bands that don't give you headaches - major plus!

Alyse said...

Running! Although weight training is a close second!

Alicia | Jaybird: Home in Motion said...

I love going for looong, hilly hikes. Running is a close second--and much easier in Illinois, where there aren't any mountains to play on.

Morgan Kirk said...

oh I am always looking for new headbands! But my most favorite way to sweat is through kickboxing. Sometimes you just need to punch and kick something some days and kickboxing always gets me sweating so much! I also love running!

Rachel G. said...

I'm a runner! I have yet to try bondibands but have heard such great reviews, I think I need to try!

Kindra Karelys Lam said...

I am getting back into running after having my first child. Would like to have a great headband for that.

Abbey said...

I just started a class called cardio burn. Oof. It is not easy, but I think I'll end up loving it.

Tami said...

I love running!!

Amber Marie said...

You're the one that turned me onto these wonderful products in the first place! They picked a good marketer ;)

Debby said...

My favorite way to sweat is running. Just getting back into it and I sure could have used a Bondi Band today in this terrible humidity!

Wendy said...

I wish that I loved running and that it was my favorite way to sweat. But alas, I am just not into it. ;) My favorite way to sweat is doing Pilates. It looks easy when you watch other people do it, but man, when you do it yourself...not so much! I'd love to win a cute headband to wear for my Pilates workouts! :)

Tamara said...

My favorite way to sweat will always be running - but lately, I have to say, I've really been enjoying lifting weights. Especially on my designated leg day, probably because in my head it makes me feel like I did a hard run by the soreness I get! ha!

Amy said...

I've tried posting a comment a few times and it doesn't appear to be posting, so if you get multiple comments from me, you can just delete them :)

I would LOVE to try this headband! My friend has one and loves it!

Veronica Lee Burns said...

Okay these are totally awesome! I would LOVE to try one!

Samantha @ Elah Tree said...

Hiking and biking! WHEN I win this, will you be sending it?... because you know how excited I get about getting things from you in the mail!

Tiffani P said...

I think I'm not allowed to say my favorite way to sweat. ahem. but my second favorite way is while eating ice cream in a park on a hot summers day. ;)

Running...duh :)

Beth @ That Little Spark said...

LOVE BondiBands!

L said...

Running and Barre speak my love language!!

Anonymous said...

Definitely running!

S Ba said...

I've been gearing up to start running...literally! LOL I've got my new shoes, my sports bras, my shorts/tops....and I've been eyeing the BondiBands because I've read your reviews on them and am dying to have one :o). My current favorite way to sweat is biking. LOVE, Love, love biking...but really wanting to cross train with running. I'm a total newbie runner. Thanks for the chance to win a BondiBand. You're awesome...I love your blog!

Stacee said...

Definitely my favorite way to sweat is running!!! But right now, I can't run (I might be a little emotional about this), but still sweat being 7 months pregnant with my fourth kid. Swimming is my go to for the moment.

The Lady Okie said...

Tiff! Oh my goodness you crack me UP.

The Lady Okie said...

Thanks so much! You should definitely check them out if you don't win, but I hope you do! I haven't biked in so long. I need to bring it up here. Currently it's at my parents' house, and I'm pretty it has 2 flat tires. So there's that.

The Lady Okie said...

This is the only thing I wear when I run! Love them. Glad you do too!

Julia said...

Thanks for the giveaway. I usually use skinny headbands that I have to clip on when I run so these look great. And I have tiny little hairs that fly everywhere even with the headband so that drives me a little crazy.

Chelsea Phelps said...

I would love this for running! It's my favorite way to work out!

Lindsay @ Typically Late said...

My favorite way to sweat is running and BodyPump - if I have those two things, I'm happy!

Justine Dion said...

Note: If you search "bondibands" on facebook, you will find a mexican rock band by that name....don't think they're going to give away a headband though!

Amy said...

dude i have crazy sideburns too haha.
I LOVE sweating when either boxing or doing lots, lots, and lots of strength training moves. deadlifts, squats, burpees...while i don't always love the exercise, i love that it makes me feel stronger.

Bria said...

Seeing as I am almost 6 months pregnant I am pretty much sweating just sitting around these days but prior to being pregnant it was running:) I always go down to just walking when I am pregnant just for my own personal peace of mind. But seeing as how I have set the goal to run my first full marathon in the year after my baby is born I would love to have one of these for training! :)

S Ba said...

LOL I used to bike all. the. time. before kids. Then not so much. But I'm totally into it again. I've got one of my son's on board, and he wants to do C25K with me. WooHoo! Get that bike out...pump up those tires...you won't regret it! I love that I can jump on my bike and go as fast as I want and actually get somewhere. hehe And the burn...oh may how it sucks in the beginning of each ride, but it's so worth it. Can't really explain it...just something I love. :o) I will keep reading your blog...yours is the only one who's managed to actually convince me that I CAN run. Thanks for that!

I read "very important brain" in Winnie the Pooh's voice. it enhanced the experience IMMENSELY.

also, I'm sad I missed the giveaway but the ears thing might have sold them for me...
