Ride Skincare Product Review by Larisa Stefana
Cycling requires us to be outside in all types of weather and our skin pays the price for our passion. We need to look after the skin as much as we look after the bike to keep our skin healthy and looking its best. After all, we’re worth it!
There are so many skincare products out there, so knowing which one to use is tricky, especially for us ladies. The products arrived from Ride Skin Care right in the middle of a hot Romanian summer – ideal for testing. So how did they do …
Ride Protect is a sunscreen with 25 SPF and it has been developed by riders, for riders as the natural way to defend our skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays. Organic jojoba and coconut oil work to rehydrate and nourish the skin. Ride Recover is a post ride moisturiser, rehydrating with aloe vera and green tea to help repair the damage of the day’s ride. They are both made with natural and organic ingredients such as coconut oil, shea butter, peppermint leaf oil, cacao oil, aloe leaf juice powder, and simmondsia chiensis oil and much more.
A long, summer ride through the Paltinis Mountains made for the perfect testing ground of both my endurance and Ride Protect. Application did not leave any greasy residue and it absorbed into my skin quickly. The cream preformed as intended and kept the sunburn away, but I was impressed by how well it held up under wet conditions from both my perspiration and the unexpected mid-ride rain shower.
My wind-whipped skin needed some care after the ride, so I was excited to try Ride Recover and it’s host of natural ingredients. The smooth texture and fantastic smell made it a pleasure to use and left me with a refreshed feeling. It has already found a way into my post-ride routine. I think that it’s very important to take care of our skin, especially when we expose it to so many daily challenges, so using the Ride Protect sunscreen is a must. It is super protective and very water resistant. They are easy to apply and get absorbed into skin really quickly. What I like about the Ride Recover is the scent and after it has been applied, the skin becomes smoother at touch and gives a refreshing feeling.
If you love riding and love your skin, than I recommend trying both RideProtect and Recover. To order these and other high quality products, visit www.rideskincare.co.uk
