Rocky Mountain Soap Company Natural Skincare and Body Care | Review
What is one boutique you wish you had nearby but sadly don't? Rocky Mountain Soap Company would be mine - I first discovered this shop back in 2014 when visiting Alberta, and learned that they have quite a few locations on the West Coast. Thankfully, they also have an online store, but seeing the products in real life is definitely a treat for your eyes and nose! Proudly Canadian, they make all their products in small batches with the finest natural ingredients and are committed to being toxin and chemical-free. They are also cruelty-free and carry many vegan options. I previously featured their Shampoo Bar with Rosemary, and I'm excited to showcase some recent discoveries that are too good not to share!
If you are a fan of bar soaps like I am, the Lemongrass Soap* will be right up your alley. You can even see small pieces of lemongrass herb in it! It is a great ingredient in skincare since it is anti-bacterial, helps minimize pores and limits oil production, making it especially suitable for those with combination to oily skin. I enjoy using it as a shave bar as well! The scent is very invigorating and the bar is super moisturizing, made from a base of coconut oil, olive oil, shea butter and sunflower oil with lemongrass oil and rosemary leaf extract thrown into the mix.
I absolutely love the smell of citrus fruits, and the Juicy Orange Facial Bar* smells absolutely incredible! Again, this one is great for those with combination to oily skin, and great for those of us who are acne-prone since it helps combat blemishes and also exfoliates the top layer of the skin. It contains the same base as the above soap, with added extracts of sweet orange oil, kiwi oil, orange juice, annatto seed oil, and calendula. I've only tried a handful of solid cleansers, and what I love about this one is that it is super gentle and non-irritating. It leaves my skin feeling incredibly soft and I enjoy using it as a body soap as well!
The Transformative Cleansing Oil* is an excellent cleanser suitable for all skin types that also acts as a remover of light makeup. I especially like using it to remove my eye makeup since it melts everything off with ease. It is meant to be used with a cotton pad, and no rinsing is required - you can follow up by spraying some toner and simply remove any excess with a cloth until your face feels clean. This oil blend features key ingredients such as sunflower seed oil, wild rose oil, arnica flower extract, sandalwood oil and rosemary extract and is best used at night for your skin to absorb all of its goodness.
The Lavender Hand & Body Wash* is a super delicate product that is multi-purpose. I personally like keeping it in my shower since it can even be used on your face as a cleanser. Since it is a castile (vegetable-based) soap and is all natural and free of sodium lauryl sulfate, it does not lather, but that does not take away from its heavy-duty power to remove dirt and impurities while leaving the skin nice and soft and smelling like a lavender field. The small list of ingredients, all ones you can easily recognize, includes: vegetable glycerin, coconut oil, water, jojoba oil, lavender oil, orange peel oil and rice bran extract. I like how a little goes a long way to keep your skin nice and moisturized. Bonus: it is also available in a 1L refill size!
The Vanilla Coconut Body Butter* basically smells like a very sweet vanilla cake. If you are not fond of super sweet scents like me, you may want to opt for one of their other scents. I only got into solid moisturizers a couple of years ago because I discovered how practical they are for travelling. This one melts on contact with your skin and despite being an oil blend absorbs rather quickly. Again, the ingredients are super simple and recognizable: sesame seed oil, sunflower seed oil, beeswax, cocoa seed butter, vanilla, coconut and vitamin E. I apply it as soon as I step out of the shower to lock in that moisture and it keeps my skin nice and moisturized for hours!
