We’ve got a lot of incredible products to choose from, so if you’re having trouble deciding, why not go straight to the source? Who knows a Rocky product better than Rocky staff? You can catch our ongoing Rocky Staff Picks series with a new feature on our Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter every other week.

Sarah

Manager of Employee Experience

How long have you been at Rocky?
I've been at Rocky about 3.5 years now - It's gone by fast!

What’s your favourite Rocky product and why?
Well honestly it's tough to pick just one ... but the Transformative Cleansing Oil is a favourite. I was nervous to try it but Karina encouraged me to "Give it Go" and I'm so glad I did. My skin no longer feels dry and tight after cleansing like when I was using my old cleanser. Now my skin feels balanced and it removes all my make up - even the eye stuff! My skin is much happier since I made the switch.

If you were abandoned on a desert island which Rocky product would you take with you and why?
I would need to bring the sunscreen! Otherwise, I would be very crispy but the lip butters are my go-to product! I have those little babies tucked away everywhere - so I would need a few for the island.

What’s your favourite Rocky hack?
I like to mix the Calming Serum in my moisturizer at night for some extra moisture.

What’s your favourite scent and can you describe how it makes you feel in three words?
I love the seasonal London Fog soap, it’s warm, cozy and comforting -- like a real London Fog Tea :)

Bearnice

Formulation and QC Chemist

How long have you been at Rocky?
11 months

What’s your favourite Rocky product and why?
Lemongrass Hand Cream because it keeps my hands moisturized for a longer time compared to other products I tried. It also makes my nails look shiny.

If you were abandoned on a desert island which Rocky product would you take with you and why?
I would pick Broad Spectrum SPF31 Face & Body Sunscreen to protect my skin from harmful UV rays.

What’s your favourite Rocky hack?
Instead of using Transformative Cleansing Oil as a dirt/makeup remover, I’m using it as a facial night oil. It contains Vitamin E, smells good, and has neutral color.

What’s your favourite scent and can you describe how it makes you feel in 3 words?
Breathe Easy Bath Salts – calming, soothing, and decongesting.

Juri

Product Advisor and Receiving Lead

How long have you been at Rocky?
3 and a half years! 2+ years in production at the workshop and 1+ years at the Canmore Retail store.

What’s your favourite Rocky product and why? 
Foot Butter! It really works, on my cracked, dry feet :) There is no substitute. I also love using it on my hands after a day of paddle boarding. It helps heal the calluses between my thumb and fingers from paddling.

If you were abandoned on a desert island which Rocky product would you take with you and why? 
The breakout buster -- it’s multi purpose. I use it for bug bites, irritated skin and sun/wind burnt lips. It’s always in my first aid bag for me and my family.

What’s your favourite Rocky hack? 
I used the Hand Butter to help flyaway hairs when I do my children’s hair to help keep things in place and not too staticy.

Citron Everything Wash — this is my go to bathtub cleaner when I mix it with water in a spray bottle!

What’s your favourite scent and can you describe how it makes you feel in 3 words?
Deep Sleep Essential Oil — 1. Calm 2. Relax 3. Peaceful

William

Store Leader at Banff

How long have you been at Rocky? 
2+ years

What’s your favourite Rocky product and why?
Everyday Hero Shower Gel! The eucalyptus smell wakes me up in the morning, the bubbly lather feels so clean and refreshing. I love to use it on my face as a morning cleanser, the plant based acid exfoliators make my skin feel soft and moisturized everywhere, everyday - with only one product!

If you were abandoned on a desert island which Rocky product would you take with you and why?
Serenity wellness spray? why - I couldn't imagine needing anything else for serene island life!

What’s your favourite Rocky hack?
Mixing the serious scrub with our kitchen wash - so foamy, so soft!

What’s your favourite scent, and describe how it makes you feel in 3 words?
Breathe Easy - tranquil, delightful, and *slowly exhales for one thousand years*
