Triumph & Disaster: We Heard You!


by Rudyard Kipling (excerpt) 

If you can dream—and not make dreams your master; 

If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim; 

If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster 

And treat those two impostors just the same; . . .

. . .If you can fill the unforgiving minute 

With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run, 

Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,

And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son! 

Why We're Featuring it: 

You spoke; we heard! We love to hear from you and we heard you say Triumph & Disaster. As founder, Dion Nash, said, their aim is to create “cult-like fanaticism that wells in the pit of your stomach eventually overcoming you, turning you into a walking Zombie billboard of Triumph & Disaster speak.” He has succeeded. Triumph & Disaster you said. Triumph & Disaster you shall have. Are you ready for it? 

Why We Like it: 

The name Triumph & Disaster comes from Rudyard Kipling’s poem, If, that speaks to values of humility, honor, risk, and reward. Life is full of triumphs and disasters; will you be prepared? 

  • If you value integrity. . . 

T&D prides themselves on products that are derived from natural ingredients and engineered with good science. No nasty dangerous chemicals. Just simple, clean, effective, dependable, safe products. They use bespoke aromas that evoke simpler times. And the only animals they test on are themselves.

  • If you value sustainability. . . 

T&D holds that what we take from the earth goes back to it. They respect indigenous ingredients, so this New Zealand-based company uses local Horopito oil and Ponga fern extracts like their ancestors did for ages. They also source natural, scientifically proven ingredients from around the globe: Australian clay, Mexican jojoba, Polynesian Tamanu oil. They strive to grow their brand ethically and humbly. 

  • If you value ritual and preparation. . . 

Nash and others on staff at T&D are former professional cricket players, so they know the value of ritual and preparation on the field. They are bringing that to the game of life, as they create products for men who value good grooming. And these men have experienced the hard-on-your-skin lifestyle of locker rooms, air travel, and hotel rooms. So, they preach a Triumph & Disaster ritual: prepare (exfoliate, cleanse face, wash your body), perform (shave), and protect (moisturize, sunscreen). 

Who It’s For:

Men who want to look their best. . . and be their best. So, you can face triumph or disaster just the same. 

You Must Have: 

  • Triumph & Disaster Ritual Face Cleanser – Start your grooming ritual with a great facial cleanser. 
  • Triumph & Disaster Gameface Moisturiser – Keep your mug “gameface” ready with this handy tube. 
  • Triumph & Disaster On The Road Travel Kit – Everything you need to be prepared, on the road or off.
