HydroPeptide On-the-Go Glow Travel Set Review

Travel always raises a ruckus with my skin and any easy solutions instantly catch my attention. HydroPeptide has designed the On-the-Go Glow Travel Set specifically for those of us who know we need to take products along, but get frazzled with the idea of decanting everything into cheap jars that may leak. The kit also doubles as a nice way to grab a selection of new things to try. Let's have a look!

HydroPeptide On-the-Go Glow Travel Set

The HydroPeptide On-the-Go Glow Travel Set includes five mini-sized products in a nice, silver travel bag. While the TSA may make you put them in your quart baggie for the plane trip, nothing says you can't keep your goodies in style once you get to the hotel!

The HydroPeptide Exfoliating Cleanser is a gentle, lightly ozonic/ocean scented cream cleanser with minimal lather. I found it cleaned well but did not strip my skin. Let's see what the brand has to say:

Triple Action Peptides, Glycolic Acid, Jojoba Beads - Thoroughly cleanse skin with foaming peptides and a burst of citrus that will energize skin, revitalize hydration and enhance a healthy glow.
FORMULA FEATURES:
 - 7 peptides including Triple Action Collagen Peptide, Relaxing Peptide, Antioxidant Peptide, Moisture-Binding Peptide, Foaming Peptide and Preservative peptides for superior anti-aging results.
 - 10% Glycolic Acid (gentle buffer) + Jojoba Beads (gentle spheres) provides daily exfoliation for glowing, clearer skin.
 - Rich in energizing antioxidants such as green tea and ginseng for free radical protection.

HydroPeptide Exfoliating Cleanser

At first I was dismayed to feel what I thought were plastic exfoliants, which are now being phased out of many brands because they are bad for the environment. However, after checking the ingredients, which I always do, I found out that indeed, the jojoba beads mentioned on the bottle are what the little scrubbing bits are. They appear on the list as jojoba esters, which can be formulated hard enough to be solid waxes. I would not say that they were very concentrated and were not very scratchy.

Following cleansing, you can use the HydroPeptide Pre-Treatment Toner. This is a very lightly moisturizing liquid with the same fresh ozonic/ocean scent. Let's see what the brand had to say:

Lactic Acid, Triple Action Peptides, Orange Stem Cell - This age-defying toner exfoliates while brightening and evening out skin tone.
FORMULA FEATURES:
 - Pre-treats skin with 6 peptides including a Triple Action Collagen Peptide, Relaxing Peptide, Antioxidant Peptide, Moisture-Binding Peptide and Preservative peptides for superior anti-aging results.
 - Citrus stem cell extract derived from oranges promotes skin elasticity and support with its antioxidant and flavonoid nutrients.
 - 5% Lactic Acid, Mulberry, Licorice, Green Tea and Vitamin C promote a brighter, more even complexion.

HydroPeptide Pre-Treatment Toner
 As you can see from the ingredients, the formula is light and contains lactic acid, which is a gentle exfoliator. I did not take a picture of the product on the skin, since it so liquid it basically resembles water.

After toning, one can begin the treatments. The HydroPeptide Eye Authority is a light eye cream with no scent. This will be great for people with oily skin, as it leaves no heaviness or stickiness at all. Let's see what the brand had to say:

Multi-Performance Peptides, Pearl Peptides, Antioxidants - This four-dimensional eye cream immediately brightens dark circles while diminishing the look of expression lines, wrinkles and puffiness.
FORMULA FEATURES:
 - 13 peptides including Relaxing Peptides, Anti-Puffiness Peptides, Anti-Dark Circle Peptides, Anti-Glycation Peptides, Lifting Peptides, Illuminating Peptides and Preservative Peptides maximize and address every eye area concern in one luxurious product.
 - Hesperidin, an antioxidant derived from steeping citrus peels in hot baths and known for its body-warming and circulatory benefits, helps improve circulation to minimize dark under-eye circles.
 - Crushed pearls, rich in minerals and amino acids, immediately illuminate the eye area to diffuse the appearance of dark circles and eye imperfections while providing antibacterial, detoxification and skin nourishing properties.
 - Sodium hyaluronate (hyaluronic acid) and ceramides perfectly hydrate the eye area without causing eye make up to crease or feel heavy.

HydroPeptide Eye Authority

I definitely feel like the HydroPeptide Eye Authority helped minimize the look of wrinkles around my eyes by moisturizing well and leaving no residue to add to puffiness. It was indeed gentle enough to use on my whole face. This one got an A-plus from me!

For full-face moisture, HydroPeptide Face Lift is included in the kit. This is a medium-rich moisturizing cream with a fresh ozonic/ocean scent. I do prefer scented skin care and this one was nice and non-lingering. It was heavier than the Eye Authority, but I experienced no acne from it. It might be a little better for me in the winter or while I am traveling on a plane than in the humid weather we have been having lately. Let's have a look at what the brand had to say:

Multi performance Peptides, Antioxidants, Triple Hyaluronic Acid - Experience a visible "face lift" with this smart hydration cream that contains a mega-dose of multi-performance peptides to reinforce skin's defenses while thoroughly protecting against environmental stressors, restoring firmness, and visibly improving the appearance of wrinkles and age spots.
FORMULA FEATURES:
 - 9 peptides including Relaxing Peptide, Lifting Peptides, Energizing Peptide, Brightening Peptide, Anti-Glycation Peptide, Defensive Peptide and Preservative Peptides that offer a wide range of superior anti-aging benefits.
 - Triple-sized hyaluronic acid improves elasticity, hydration and skin smoothing for immediate and long term benefits.
 - Over a dozen antioxidants provide broad spectrum free radical protection and multifunctional benefits including skin brightening, wound healing and anti-irritation benefits to maintain a youthful appearance.
 - ß-White, Licorice, Bearberry and Vitamin C brighten and even out skin tone.

HydroPeptide Face Lift

The HydroPeptide Face Lift left my skin well moisturized, flake free, and glowing during the time I used it. The ingredients were gentle and my skin tolerated them well.

Finally, when you need an extra boost, there is the HydroPeptide Purifying Mask. This is white-colored but dries clear to a matte finish. Let's have a look at what the brand had to say:

Plumping + Muscle-relaxing + Moisture-enhancing Peptides, Coenzymes, Green Tea - Instantly create a more youthful radiant glow, extract impurities and minimize the appearance of pores as purifying clays, peptides and hyaluronic acid lift, firm and hydrate skin.

HydroPeptide Purifying Mask

I could definitely feel the clay in the mask, which is intended to absorb impurities and excess oils in the skin. It rinsed well and left my face nicely plump and moist with no irritation.

The HydroPeptide On-the-Go Glow Travel Set retails for $78, and if you want to try it, I have a coupon code for 20% off: BBACK20A. Each of these products is also available in a full size, so if you fall in love you can grab a larger version to use at home. I often pack sample-sized skin care and I love the idea of getting a ready made kit to make traveling easier, since I am always forgetting things. Do you see any products you would like to try? Do you keep a travel kit ready at all times or pack as you go?
