Review of Urth Travel Kit - Part One
A couple months ago we got the Urth Perfect Travel Kit
in from Details For Men, which was called simply that - the Urth Perfect Travel Kit. Now it's advertised on the Urth website
as the "TSA-Compliant" perfect travel kit. There's no such thing as inconvenience when it comes to marketing - only opportunity.
But the Urth Perfect Travel Kit is more than a gimmick. In fact it's downright solid. As we mentioned in our previous post, you get travel sized versions of Face Wash, Shave Formula, Face Balm SPF 15, and Face Scrub. Plus, they come in a handy mesh travel bag for easy storage. The mesh bag is actually pretty nice, although it's small enough that you're probably not going to replace your current travel bag with this one.
Today we're going to focus on two products - Urth Face Wash and Urth Scrub. Tomorrow we'll cover Urth Shave Formula and Urth Face Balm.
Urth products are all about the tea - white tea, green tea, tea tree oil - and Urth Face Wash is no different. "White Tea & Green Tea detoxify while Ginseng nourishes." Indeed. Have you smelled white tea? I know I've mentioned this before, but white tea has be one of the greatest smells on the planet. It's soothing, clean, and never over-powering. Don't agree with me? Well, you're wrong on this one. White tea rules. Urth Face Wash smells great, and unlike a lot of face washes we've tried, rinses off easily. No oily layer left behind. Urth Face Wash does not foam up, so you'll probably end up using a little more than you'd expect. At first I tried using it sparingly but found that I wasn't sure I was getting enough coverage. The white semi-thick liquid might remind you of... well... clean. It'll remind you of clean. And it will clean.
Urth Face Wash is $29 for an 8oz bottle, or comes in a 2oz travel size as part of the Urth Perfect Travel Kit ($59).
Next up is Urth Scrub, a rough green exfoliant with green tea and rice. Don't be fooled by the fact that it sounds like dinner at a Chinese restaurant. This is a man's exfoliant. Ingredient number two - walnut shell powder. A far cry from baby powder. And if that's not enough there's real wheat germ and ground up rice to remove dead skin and let that healthy layer shine through. Some exfoliants we've tried in the past have been a gel-like substance with the occasional fleck of grit. Urth Scrub is all grit. Expect to use this twice a week. No more.
Urth Scrub is $36 for a 4oz tub, or comes in a 2oz travel size as part of the Urth Perfect Travel Kit ($59).
Tune in tomorrow for our review of Urth Shave Formula and Urth Face Balm.
