The Essential Face Cream is one of Rocky’s most loved products. It consistently comes up as a Staff Must-Have and customers rave about it (no joke, see the 480+ reviews). You’d think this cream has superpowers or something.

Maybe not superpowers, but it does have superfood. For the skin. It’s made with antioxidant-rich pomegranate oil to improve skin tone, skin-strengthening black oat extract, and anti-inflammatory fireweed extract. It is lightweight hydration that smells delightful made with only natural ingredients.

Another wonderful tidbit is that it can multi-task. As a staple in many Rocky Staff’s houses, we hear it being used as a makeup remover, a shoe polish, cuticle cream and even a hair gel. So we’ve rounded up our favourite ways to use the day cream to get the most of our its nourishing ingredients.

Here is how to use the day cream 4 different ways:

1. Damp + Solo

When you wake up in the morning, your skin is dry because you’ve been losing a lot of moisture throughout the night while you’re sleeping. Moisten the skin first with a warm, wet face cloth or if you shower in the morning, follow that with a layer of day cream to lock in the moisture. That little bit of hydration on the skin, that dampness, will allow the cream to penetrate better and quicker for long-lasting moisture.

2. Dynamic Duo for Dry Skin

When your skin is encountering a lot of dryness and redness, add 1-2 drops of Transformative Cleansing Oil to the Day Cream to calm and give the skin extra hydration.

While typically used as a cleanser, the Transformative Cleansing Oil is loaded with beneficial oils for the skin that hydrate, calm and promote the growth of healthy new skin cells. Because this facial oil mimics the sebum of your skin, you’ll never strip away all the natural oil your skin needs thus causing an overproduction of oil unnecessarily.

You’ll leave it on all day so be sure to cleanse your skin first before applying this dynamic duo. In a smaller amount, this duo also works great as an oil-based makeup remover especially around the eyes where the skin is thinner and more sensitive.

3. The Day-Creamsicle

Exfoliation never smelled better. A small dollop of Pomegranate Day Cream mixed with the Vanilla Coconut Face Polish makes a dreamy orange creamsicle scent that will have you fighting the impulse to eat it.

The Vanilla Coconut Face Polish contains Moroccan Lava Clay to help reduce dryness and improve skin elasticity. The day cream adds hydration and creamy texture to help smooth it on your face more thoroughly. We recommend exfoliating with a face polish a couple times a week, but it’s safe to do daily if that’s what your skin needs.

4. Serum Boost

If your skin is feeling dull and lifeless, make a vitamin elixir that your skin will soak right up. The same way we take our omega 3 capsules to keep our bodies healthy and our immune system strong, you add a Face Serum to your skincare ritual to give your skin a boost of nourishment.

Adding the right serum can help balance combination skin, purify oily skin, hydrate dry skin, and restore mature skin. Add 1-2 drops of your favourite serum to the day cream, mix it in your palm and apply on your face and neck.
