Canadian Brand | Rich Skin | Moisturiser

One of the things I love about Canada is the push to support local, organic Canadian brands. I have noticed it in blogging in particular that smaller organic brands reach out to me to review their products instead of just mainstream brands and I think that is great. I am all for using products with natural ingredients instead of the nasty chemicals in some.

Nancy from Rich Skin reached out to me asking me if I would like to talk hear about her products. We had a really lovely phone call in which she talked me through the products that she makes and why she believes in natural ingredients. She said her products are great for use on psoriasis and this really pleased me as the dry climate here irritates psoriasis on my legs.

The first product from Rich Skin that I have been using is the body moisturiser.

Ingredients: water, emulsifying wax, grapefruit seed extract, coconut oil, rose water, carrot macerated oil, frankincense essential oil & patchouli essential oil.

Grapefruit seed extract: rich in natural ingredients that nourish and protect the skin, including vitamins A, C and E. (Source)
Coconut oil: Full of saturated fats which help to retain the moisture content of the skin. Has vitamin E in it which helps protect against the cracking  of skin. (Source)
Rose water: Rose water has anti-inflammatory properties that help to treat irritated skin (i.e. psoriasis). The antioxidant properties of rose water help to strengthen skin cells and regenerate skin tissues. (Source)
Carrot macerated oil: Full of beta carotene which is the precursor for vitamin A. It helps to promote healthy skin tissue and is an antioxidant. It also helps soothe irritated, dry skin. (Source)
Frankincense oil: Helps soothe irritated skin, can help fade stretch marks. (Source)
Patchouli oil: Helps reduce inflammation and cellulite. (Source )

Before I started using this moisturiser I felt like I was at a little bit of a loss. I had been using Palmer's Cocoa Butter consistently and it worked great for around a month, then sometime in March it just didn't seem to be enough for my skin. I am not sure if Calgary got a bit dryer but my skin was shedding so much. My legs and hips were the worst areas, it was like I had dandruff on them. I kept using Palmer's Cocoa Butter until it was finished then I started using Rich Skin's moisturiser.

What a difference. My skin seemed to be instantly hydrated and not as flaky when I used this moisturiser for the first few days. I have been using it daily since and I am so happy. My skin feels so smooth and isn't flaky anymore. This moisturiser has also helped clear up a patch of psoriasis that I had on the front and behind my knee.

This moisturiser doesn't take a long time to take to sink into my skin which is a huge benefit. I also love the smell. It smells very natural and herby(?). I can't think of the correct word to describe it but it is lovely.

I keep this moisturiser in the shower and use it twice a day. I use it in the morning straight after I have showered and then before I go to bed. I would love if there was a travel size of this product as the bottle is quite bulky to take away!

I also have more lovely products from Rich Skin to use and review which will be on the blog in a few weeks.

Thank you to Nancy for introducing me to her wonderful skin-care range.
