When I opened my shipment and saw the travel case that carries the Intro Collection, I was immediately impressed by its simple strength and beauty. The case had the look of brushed aluminum, but it was lightweight and soft to the touch. When I unzipped the case five products were revealed, each safely tucked into sturdy mesh pockets. This is definitely a travel case that will get used, it is the right size and shape to throw in a backpack or motorcycle luggage, for a weekend jaunt or a three week journey.
The five products included in the Intro Kit are Cleanser, Purifier, Moisturizer, Sunscreen and five individually wrapped Facial Wipes. They all come in air tight dispensers, to stay fresh while traveling. I have used the products for two weeks, even after returning from my trip. This is my first time reviewing a skin care line, and its actually much tougher than reviewing, for example, motorcycle pants. Skin care is such a personal thing, what works for me may not work for others, but I’ll do my best to describe my experience with these products.
Naturally Liberating Cleanser
Scent: Earthy smell, I would describe it as light pine mint. All the products contain natural ingredients and are fragrance free, but I’m not familiar enough with the ingredients, to know which one is creating this scent. It smells good, it is just different from anything I would normally put on my face, took a few times to get used to it.
Texture/Appearance: Thin white cream. I realized after a couple uses, it needs to be shaken because the ingredients seems to settle.
Use: Product applies smoothly and feels good on my skin. Rinses cleanly, more so than other products I’ve used. My face feels clean after use.
Vividly Restorative Skin Purifier
Scent: Very mild clean scent.
Texture/Appearance: Clear serum. Comes out of the pump faster than the cleanser.
Use: I used this between cleansing and moisturizing. Something I think should be added to the packaging is recommendations for use, I wasn’t really sure on this one. The Purifier was easy to apply and dried instantly. I will be ordering more of this, it claims to reduce breakouts and restore skin’s radiance. I saw these benefits in the short time I used the product.
Boldly Nourishing Moisturizer
Scent: Clean scent.
Texture/Appearance: Light white cream. Goes on smoothly and dries quickly. I can apply makeup right after application with no problem.
Use: I really like this moisturizer, it doesn’t feel heavy and it kept my skin feeling soft all day.
High Performance Sunscreen
Living in Florida, I thought this would be one of my favorites of the five products, but actually I haven’t found a lot of opportunity to use it. I suppose I should be using it everyday, but when I’m on the bike with full gear and a full-face tinted helmet, I don’t think about sunscreen. If you ride with exposed skin, I would highly recommend sunscreen (or more gear 😉 ), but I can’t do an honest review on this one right now.
Fearlessly Refreshing Facial Wipes
My favorite!! These wipes are fantastic, I used them several times on my trip. When I’m going out for a day of pure riding, I usually don’t wear makeup, so taking one of these out and being able to freshen up after a few hours of riding in the crazy summer heat made my skin feel great and ready to tackle the rest of the ride. There is just enough moisture for your face and neck, and they smell great.
