If there’s one thing we love at Mankind, it’s a new-to-site grooming brand we can really sink our teeth in to. Triumph & Disaster is a male skincare brand which not only delivers amazing products and formulations, but also has a fantastic story behind it. Helping you to look great from head to toe, the range is packed full of essentials for your every day regime, alongside a few additional add-ons to enhance your game every now and again.
As mentioned, Triumph & Disaster are a brand with quite the story behind them. In 2002, a former New Zealand cricket team player named Dion Nash retired and pin pointed a gap in the male skincare market. After a few years he decided to use his knowledge and understanding of the sporting world, alongside his passion for skincare, to launch his very own range: Triumph & Disaster.
Soon after the initial launch, two more former cricketers, Reece Young and Kerry Walmsley, upped their game and joined the Triumph & Disaster team. As the team spent most of their time in their previous career out on the pitch, they all developed a logical understanding of skincare which they now incorporate into each product.
As brand has been developed by drawing in real-life experiences, all by a team who know their skincare on and off the field, you can rest assured that you can trust their products. With this in mind, it can be quick tricky to know where to start when adding a new brand to your collection. But don’t worry, we’ve got your back and below are just a few of our recommendations from the range to try today.
For an indulgent shaving experience, the Old Fashioned Shave Cream is a great introduction to the range. Not only does this cream foam into a rich lather to allow an effortless shave, but it has a unique blend of fragrances for a fresh and luxurious aroma. Using this shave cream will allow you to enjoy shaving with a minimised risk of irritation, ingrown hairs and razor bumps. Each tub also lasts for over 100 shaves making it great value for money as well. Key Ingredients include Lanolin and coconut oil extracts for skin hydration and protection. Wave goodbye to painful, ineffective shaves.
It’s mentioned a lot but protecting your skin from the sun is so important, especially in hot weather during summer. Triumph & Disaster’s No Dice Sunscreen SPF 50 protects your skin from the sun’s UV, blocking 98% of UVB rays. This sunscreen is non-whitening and quick absorbing so your skin won’t be left feeling tacky, irritated or with clogged pores. For more sun tips, check out ‘Your Guide to SPF’.
The Ritual Face Cleanser is one of our best sellers and we can totally understand why. This cleanser is gentle yet effective and removes dirt and oil without causing irritation or drying the skin out. This makes it ideal for any men, even those who suffer with sensitive skin. Key ingredients used in this facial cleanser include Tamanu Oil, Peppermint Oil, Omega 3 fatty acids, vitamins and minerals. These will nourish and condition the skin whilst soothing and improving elasticity. Say hello to soft and supple skin each and every day.
