Swim Product Review


Over the past several years, I've heard a lot of hype about specialty swim shampoos/conditioners/body washes/lotions etc. I've read several reviews. Some people didn't feel like they cleaned well, some didn't think they had enough suds, some didn't like the smell. So, I've been satisfied to stick with my usual hair care and body products. Lately, I've been swimming 5-6 times a week. I've noticed that my hair was REALLY dull, and my skin was REALLY dry! Nothing I had on hand, seemed to help ANY!! So, I was excited when the new issue of Swimmer Magazine had an ad from the SBR Company that makes the Tri Swim products. In their ad, they mentioned that you could get free samples by e-mailing them. Off I went to the computer to enter my information. Within 3 days, I had a big envelope full of samples from their Tri Swim line. They included: shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and body lotion. They also threw in one of their Foggle towelettes to clean my goggles!!


To say the least, I was very skeptical. As soon as I had my first opportunity, I tried them out!


The shampoo got rid of the slimy, chlorine feel of my hair after my swims! It made it squeaky!! The smell was a very nice citrus smell. It made me think of grapefruit. When my hair dried, it was very shiny and the dullness was gone. I was also pleased with the conditioner! It got the tangles out (I have long, curly, fine hair, so this is an issue for me)and moisturized, without making my hair feel weighed down or greasy.


The body wash and lotion were excellent as well. Both had that same citrus smell as the shampoo and conditioner. I found out rather quickly that a little bit of both go a long way! I'm used to using moisturizing body wash, so the Tri Swim body wash had a very different feel. My skin felt REALLY clean and squeaky, while I was in the shower. After I was out and dried off, my skin felt smooth and moisturized. The lotion absorbed quickly and left my skin just feeling and looking soft, instead of slippery and greasy.

All of the above products contain gentle, natural ingredients to help repair the damage that chlorine leaves behind. From the Tri Swim website:

The ingredients in TRISWIM work to neutralize Chlorine and Chlorine odor on skin and in hair. TRISWIM has up to 5 sequestering agents which assist in attacking the chlorine, grabbing a hold of it, and washing the chemical down the drain. Not only does TRISWIM detoxify, but with our innovative formula, it also hydrates and nourishes with ingredients such as Organic Aloe Vera, Vitamin A and E, and ProVitamin B5.

Best of all, Tri Swim is a product that animals lovers can feel confident in using.


At SBR SPORTS,INC, we use the finest ingredients known to us in the formulation of our innovative brands. SBR SPORTS, does not test, nor have we ever tested or believe in testing our products on animals.

All of their products are VERY affordable, whether you get them from the Tri Swim website or other swim retailers. Prices range from $8.95 per tube to $13.20 per tube.

I always just used my regular stuff when I was swimming daily/weekly too, even though I felt like I needed something better. Unfortunately, I haven't been to the pool in the last year or so (and I miss it terribly). When I finally find a place where can swim regularly again though, I'll definitely look into these products. Thanks for the recommendation!
