About 8 months ago, around my birthday, I began getting really bad breakouts. I had never suffered from acne as a teenager and rarely broke out. I always considered my skin to be ‘pretty good’. But of course, when I turn 29, all hell breaks loose! This was also about the time I become interested in using chemical free products – it would be a few months still until I changed my skin care products. But I was determined to get my face under control! I have never been good at covering up blemishes, so to get the pinup up face I wanted, I needed to have clear skin.
If you have used any acne or breakout products, you have to know they are over flowing with chemicals! They smell of pure chemical. And this is not what I want to be putting on my skin. So I searched elsewhere, outside of the drug store, for a chemical and cruelty free product. I had read about Rocky Mountain Soap Company – that they are chemical free, Canadian company, with good practices- so when I stumbled upon them in the mall one day, I stopped in and bought a few items.
I was very impressed with the simplicity of their store. Minimal packaging, how it was laid out, things were easy to find, and when I checked out I was given a fancy pamphlet listing “no-no” ingredients that one should look for and avoid in products.
Rocky Mountain Soap Company products are now in my daily regime. My skin is back on track, which means no more breakouts! Oh sure I get the odd blemish here or there, but nothing like what was happening a few months ago.
So, what to know my favorite products?!
Avocado Facial Soap $5.25
I use this soap both in the morning and in the evening. It’s a gentle soap, that does not dry out my skin. And for the price, you really cant go wrong
Bamboo Brightening Face Polish $16
I use this polish in the morning ( or in the evening if I have forgotten to use it earlier). It makes my skin feel refreshed and invigorated. It gets rid of all the dead skin and helps clear out my pores
Breakout Buster $9
This little stick in made anti-bacterial via the tea tree in it. It smells gently of tea tree, and we all know tea tree is a great anti bacterial and anti inflammatory agent. Its used as a spot treatment, so whenever I do have a blemish or feel one coming on, I use this guy, day or night
Beech Tree Bud Eye Cream $35
I also use this amazing eye cream in the morning and the evening, before bed. It is nice and light and also very gentle, which is important for an eye cream.
Rocky Mountain Soap Company has some other products I really want to try, like their cleansers for example, so when I do Ill let you know how I like them!
I do use a few other skin care products from derma-e, aubrey organics, and green beaver, but I am really loving Rocky Mountain stuff right now.
They only have stores in B.C, Alberta, and Manitoba, but you can buy it all online! And, they also send a free gift, usually a whole bar of soap – I love when companies do that.
Like I said, my breakouts are now totally under controlled and my skin is back to normal! No need for chemicals, just all natural goodness!
