Hi, friends welcome back!! Today I am going to do a requested review on the mats that I have. The mats that I use the most and why I like or dislike each mat so if you’re interested in purchasing a mat or interested in knowing which mats I use the most and just keep watching.
I have five main mats as you see in the video. I tried to get a variety of colors to some degree.
The first mat and in no particular order am I going about these the first mat. I bought is from Lululemon it is very heavy and I’m trying to remember how thick this mat is but it’s one of the more cushion mats I’m pretty sure it’s the 5 millimeter pretty sure it is it’s longer than your average mat it’s long I got this mat a couple of years ago I really love it as you see it’s well-loved I used it throughout a teacher training and the reason I got this mat and was not because it was Lululemon it was because one you will not slip on the snap it’s very grippy that’s for sure it’s very grippy on the perforated side of the textured side on the smoother side they say that it will hold you like once you get sweaty it grips you more and I beg to differ I wasn’t slipping and sliding that’s for sure which is good because I think this cost almost a 100 dollars no close to it but one side is a little more girly than the other I will say what I got this mat for getting back to what I was talking about what I mainly got this mat for was the length’s definitely like the the longest one because it gives me more space this would be great for someone that’s taller I am 5 or they apply four or five favorites for naps and like that and it’s definitely much longer than I need because I really like to have space during class I got this mat I don’t like to feel like I have to be like pressed up against someone even if the class is packed so I just got a longer mat that way I can avoid those issues it is very heavy so it’s not any kind of a trouble mat or anything like that but one of the negatives about it I guess I’ll say is that it’s a rubber mat so it smells like rubber every time I practice on this mat I smell like a tire like a straight tire like you have to go take a shower afterward, that’s the main thing that I don’t like this mat but anything else I mean I’m really for it it’s the high quality you can wash it pretty easily and yeah that’s my opinion.
The second mat that I have is also Lululemon but this was gifted to me by my friend that should know my old co-worker think you should know if you’re watching it is a traveling Matt it is something that I really wanted and need it because I hated traveling or going on a trip with my fiance and not being able to really do yoga or feel like I was in my space so you can see Lululemon here this is a very but to be honest I feel like this mat is even more grippy than my other The little lemon mat on this side it’s super grippy on the other side it has that smooth feel this was $60 something up somewhere around there it’s the full length as you can see well if this is like the regular length of a mat and it’s thinner than regular mat so you can fold it up and it’s not like a big deal I definitely was able to put it in my luggage and so that was super helpful it’s extremely light extremely light it’s really like almost paper itself but it’s still the quality which is what I like about it so yes my Lululemon travel mat Kylie would recommend I think I hadn’t even done like a 1 through 10 what I would do so for the first Lululemon mat I would give it out of a 10 I would say 7 8 out of 10 mainly because that smell is so strong so yeah I’d say like a 7 or 8 out of 10 for this person luma matte and for Lululemon Travel not I would give it I mean I’ve used it even at home just casually before what it’s used for you know aside from the fact that it’s thin but it’s supposed to be then I would give this a 10.
The 3rd mat. I have my sugar yoga mat I got this for myself it is a suede mat so the texture is very very soft it feels like a tower essentially and then on the other side it has rubber as you see it’s very like much more like pliable it’s not really stiff so it’s easy to roll up and you actually could kind of hold that if you wanted to treat this like a child in that you kind of could because it’s you can scratch it up it is a regular full-length yoga mat as you can see and even though it does have rubber on one side I mean you don’t want to put this nice suede part on the floor it does get dirty pretty quickly I have not even figured out how to fully wash this I’ve like spot treated it but I have not fully figured out how to wash it what I do love about sugar mat you will not smell like rubber so that’s great because rubbers on the other side and they monogrammed it for you for free so when you purchase one oh my gosh this man is quite dusty when you purchase one you can get it monogrammed which I did Arjan Elizabeth I think it’s a nice touch that they don’t charge you extra for which is great and yeah as far as the grittiness when you’re practicing it is shockingly it would not seem like that and when they say you have to sweat on it first before you actually start feeling the grittiness it’s really true it’s like you have to wet it before it’s grippy otherwise they feel like you’re gonna just slip right off of it but once you start sweating it’s very awesome and I did put it to great use, this mat was $88 $80 from sugarman so sugar mat.com if you go on Instagram you can find them as well and they just sell a lot of very pretty pretty items pretty yoga mats I mean beautiful designs this is just one design thing this is like the palm leaf design but they have literally if you just just go on sugar mat trust me it’s so beautiful so yeah and as you can see I was able to fold it up and I wasn’t even thinking about it so definitely highly recommend sugar map the only con is that you can’t really clean it super easy as far as a rating I would give it I’d probably give it a good nine out of ten.
The 4th mat is my absolute most the favorite in that and I never thought I would say this because I’m so big on like aesthetic and I love being able to see pretty designs and stuff like that so I used to say oh my sugar master favorite mat until this company scoria gifted me with this mat it is a court yoga mat I was so skeptical but I was wondering like how is cork going to feel how’s it gonna smell first of all there is no smell on this mat I’m just gonna say off the bat Tonetta 10 10 out of 10 there is no smell I use it all the time cork is antimicrobial so it stays clean on it owns even though you still look of course clean your mats but you don’t have to as often with this one and it’s just it’s pretty it is pretty I mean it’s course it’s a little more plain than like sugar map but aesthetic wise I just I love how natural it feels and it is and it’s soft and it’s so grippy it is I feel so sturdy on this mat it’s ridiculous especially once I sweat before and after I sweat I feel great on this mat as you guys can tell this is the mat that I use in all of my videos and if you go on my Instagram I don’t even remember the last the time I used one of the other mats like I’ve been using this mat for the past maybe like six months straight I think so yeah it’s one of my most favorite minutes it is fairly cushiony I would say three millimeters 3r I’d have to get back to you on that one but it’s full-length regular full-length mat and it has rubber on the back so you actually can flip it over if you want to use this side you can because this side is you can still wipe it off and it’ll stay clean so yeah this is definitely this is my favorite Matt I mean this is nothing I would buy more of these I just don’t because I have so many masters no need for me to buy any more math at this point in my life so 10/10 for the scoria yoga mat.
The 5th mat but not at least I have my men do come to act this way a treat yo’ self mat essentially I got it literally for Valentine’s Day, it was like a self love a present as you could be pink for the today it is a great map you will get that kind of rubbery smell but it’s extremely grippy I love the color it’s been vibrant as you can see it is well-loved as well you can flip it on either side very equally so there’s no issue with that so you can do you know gray or pink and this mat cost somewhere between 75 and 90 somewhere around there and it is also just a regular full length or size mat sometimes I don’t know it might just be in my head but I feel like it’s a teensy bit smaller than the average yoga mat and yeah it is fairly thick great quality love it. it’s lasted a long time. I highly recommend it. it’s not quite a travel mat because it is really heavy I will say it’s very very heavy yeah it’s all I got to say about this one.
Those are all of my favorites mats. I hope you enjoy reading this review.
