As I get older, I’m always striving to ensure that my skincare routine is keeping up. Which is why I’ve been trying to switch to a more gentle and natural skin care routine. Mind you, not my entire skincare regimen is “natural” per-se, but the natural route has been piquing my interest for quite some time now, and since incorporating some natural products into my routine, I’ve been seeing such a big difference! That’s why I was so excited when the Rocky Mountain Soap Company sent me some of their products for review!
The Rocky Mountain Soap Company is a Canadian company that focuses on 100% all-natural & cruelty-free skincare, and you already know I love supporting local companies whenever I get a chance! They sent me their Lavender & Arnica Calming Toner, Pomegranate Day Cream and one of their famous Hand/Body soap bars in the most wonderful limited edition holiday scent: Vanilla Candy Cane.
First of all, this soap has such a lovely scent, it smells like a peppermint vanilla latte, and feels so creamy on the skin. I initially tried this on my face, but to be honest, it felt very dry. I reached out to them, and they let me know that although this soap technically can be used for the face, they do recommend it more for hands and body (They also have soaps specifically for use on the face – oopsies!). As a body soap, this felt so luxurious on the skin. The scent filled my bathroom while I showered, and left my skin feeling super soft, likely due to the Coconut, Canola, Soybean, Cottonseed, Olive and Castor oils that are in the soap. *As a tip, I always like to use my bar soaps with a vegetable peeler. I know it sounds weird, but having a bar of soap hanging out in your damp shower is a breeding ground for bacteria. If you peel off little single-use strips and store them in an airtight container, your soap will last much longer this way!
I love anything and everything lavender-scented, I find it to be so soothing and calming, especially in the evening as I’m winding down for bed, which is my prefered time for using this toner. It comes in a glass bottle and is in a spray/mist-form. The website claims that this toner soothes delicate and irritated skin, while offering a healthy dose of antioxidants and skin-repairing ingredients to nourish and hydrate the skin. What I love about this toner is that is not at all drying. It’s actually made with olive oil and also has aloe listed in the ingredients, which help to moisturize and hydrate. As a girl with oily skin, I have been loving this toner as it doesn’t dry out my skin like most toners do.
As you may or may not know, Pomegranate is an amazing anti-aging ingredient as it’s chock full of antioxidants, helping your skin to retain moisture. Initially, it feels very luxurious and thick, however, once absorbed into the skin, it feels very light and moisturizing, seriously the perfect day cream! It has been a fantastic base for makeup, and doesn’t make my skin overly oily like some creams do.
Overall, I have been really loving my all-natural skincare products from Rocky Mountain Soap Co., and can’t wait to try more products from this brand. Incorporating natural products into your skincare is so much easier than I anticipated, and Rocky Mountain Soap Co. makes it a no-brainer with their high-quality products – Bonus, the products are affordable considering you get so much in each container (the toner will last me forever!).
