Introducing Triumph and Disaster

by Matthew Taylor Ruggieri on March 17, 2013.


As a sportsman from New Zealand, Dion Nash spent long periods outside exposed to sun, wind, and sweat. Because of this, he grew acutely aware of the effect the sun and our environment has on skin and consequently on the way we feel. He recently launched Triumph & Disaster, a skincare line inspired by nature and science, and shared his grooming “must-do’s” with us.

“If you only do two things in your grooming routine, exfoliate and moisturize.”

Exfoliate: because this is a game changer, clean out all the oily buildup and get rid of the layers of dead skin. It just makes you feel so good, literally you are resetting the face.

Moisturize: use a natural, nutrient rich, quality moisturiser, one with some, in built anti-aging properties (see Ponga fern extract). Shaving, exposure to the sun or sitting in air conditioned offices all dry out skin, good moisturisers lock in the natural moisture and help your face fight back against these elements and old man time.

Rock & Roll Suicide
Exfoliating Face Scrub

Why it’s different:
Natural ingredients like Volcanic Ash and Green Clay exfoliate away dead skin and draw out impurities to reveal healthy, fresh layers of skin. It’s also rich in iron, magnesium and potassium so it nourishes skin at the same time.

Gameface Facial Moisturizer

Why it’s different:
Infused with Jojoba extract, New Zealand Horopito oil, Ponga fern and Vitamin E to tighten and lift skin and provide the antioxidants needed to defend against the elements. It is specifically designed to be light on the skin and easily absorbed, it will leave you feeling hydrated and fresh.
