Is Natural Skin Care Worth The Hype ? Rocky Mountain Soap Co. Review



I love a good skincare regimen and for the most part I try to stick to what I know works well on my skin and doesn’t break me out.  My routine is fairly simple ( not) : cleanser, toner, serum , anti-aging eye product, mask, moisturizer and finally lip balm. I told you it was simple ! Unfortunately, I can’t stop or turn back time (the things I would do if I could though…lol) so I’ve been finding lately that my skin is changing slightly and a few of my go-to products have been irritating me a bit. Maybe it’s the change of season or it could be that as my skin is changing it’s also becoming sensitive . So I knew  it was time to change of the skin care regimen.

The Rocky Mountain Soap Co. came to my rescue! They sent me these products to sample and I couldn’t have been happier to receive them just as I was looking to switch up my skin care.Before being sent the products I didn’t know much about this company, only that it was sold at Rainbow Natural Foods in Ottawa. I dug deeper to learn that Rocky Mountain Soap Company only use Toxin Free products to create their vast lineup of All Natural products. As well the products are handmade in Alberta, Canada! I’ve never used 100% natural skincare products  so I thought why not, let’s give it a go.

I was sent the following products to sample:



               CALMING TONER

Lavender and Arnica are known skin soothing ingredients so once I started using this toner I knew my skin  instantly liked it! I didn’t have that dry feeling I had before applying the toner and since I only apply toner at night, I woke up the next morning to very hydrated but more specifically non-itchy skin. I definitely think the lavender did the trick! As well it helped a lot that this toner smelled like heaven and I woke up smelling like a flower!




Pomegranate is superfood for your skin, just don’t eat the jar even though it does smell good enough to nibble on! The moisturizer is very hydrating when used with the toner or alone. As with all the Rocky Mountain Soap Company products, the moisturizer is 100% natural and toxin-free.If I could bathe in this moisturizer I would!!! The only drawback I found was that it didn’t have any SPF , but then it wouldn’t be considered all natural. Still, I couldn’t justify leaving the house with out SPF so I layered an SPF product on top of this moisturizer.



Since there’s not a lot of sun in Ottawa lately, except for a day here and there, I haven’t used this product for it’s intended purpose which is to soothe skin after too much sun exposure. Since I didn’t have that problem I started using this product on my legs after shaving! I get crazy little red bumps  and since this body butter contains Aloe, beeswax, coconut and castor oil ,which are all known hydrating ingredients, I knew it would sooth my legs! Voila, it worked! Now instead of applying lotion, I’ve started to reach for the body butter stick! It hydrates and gives my legs a nice glow as well.



Who doesn’t love a good face mask! This mask contains Ginseng and Spirulina which a are known to soften skin and give your skin a healthy glow by infusing it with organic botanicals. The first time I used this mask, I was a bit taken back by the smell. It wasn’t bad but didn’t smell great. It did smell like vanilla and coconut with a green powdery consistency. Once you add water to the powder it creates a paste and you leave it on your skin for 10-15 minutes. Don’t add too much water ,  a tiny bit goes a long way. It was easy to remove after the time expired and my skin felt very nourished and hydrated. The package is only 40 grams so you can get 4 uses out of the one package.

So for the past 2 weeks and half I’ve been using these products and I’v truly enjoyed the 100% natural and non-toxic products that the Rocky Mountain Soap Co. sent me to sample. I am obsessing mostly over the toner, moisturizer and body butter as I feel they really worked well and quickly to sooth my irritated skin. Now I’m not saying I will go all natural with my skincare from now on, but I am making a continue effort to introduce more natural and toxin-free products in my life. I have to say it does feel good to know that I have absolutely no chemicals on my face! I would highly recommend these products to anyone who is against chemicals in their skin care routine and who is looking for a well rounded skin care line that can fight the aging process and still keep skin hydrated and plump. I will definitely continue to use the toner and moisturizer in my routine ( LOVE LOVE!) now that I know they are instantly soothing my skin!

    I’ve used a body scrub from The Rocky Mountain Soap Co. years ago and I liked it! It’s always nice to find those brands that you can try new things from!

    Your skin care routine is pretty simple compared to other bloggers! I use around the same amount of products and sometimes feel like I need to add a few more in. The face mask sounds really nice! I’d probably be thrown off by the smell (especially because I wouldn’t expect that from a green powder) but I need something that’ll make my skin softer. Great review! I’ve only heard about this company a few times, but so far it’s all been positive!

    I use RMSC’s vanilla coconut shampoo, conditioner, and body lotion, and I love them! My hair doesn’t get nearly as greasy as quickly as it did when I used other products (though summer is upon us, so maybe that’ll change), and the lotion leaves my skin feeling smooth for a loooong time. I’ve been looking to upgrade my skin regiment, which is currently just washing my face, putting on an SPF moisturizer, and spraying a hydrating mist. Might look into this toner!

    I use pretty much all of RMSC stuff; body butter, body wash, scrubs, skin care, shampoo & conditioner, body oil, foot care and their sunscreen. When I had a bathtub I loved soaking in their bath salts. I love all their stuff and have been a loyal customer for about 20 years now. I moved to France 3 years ago and make regular orders online and have it shipped over; I’m a serious addict.
