There really couldn’t be a better person than me to review toiletries from a company called Rockface could there? You know because I’m all rugged and manly. No? Well at the very least my feet are like a rock face from all the running I do. However I’m a tough audience to convince when it comes to toiletries, my wash bag contains deodorant, E45 moisturiser and an electric razor. That’s it. I even wrote a blog post about it a couple of years ago for Listography and nothing has changed in my washing routine since. So when the parcel turned up with 5 different bottles in it I was a little confused, why exactly do I need 2 different types of moisturiser and is shower gel not a kind of face scrub anyway? But you must have an open mind when it comes to change right? So I persevered and for the last couple of weeks I have been diligently using my collection of potions.
Alas they haven’t magically made me look 10 years younger or for that matter tough and rugged but I have actually quite enjoyed taking a little bit more care of my skin. I received shave gel, face & body scrub, post shave balm, all weather moisturiser and active body spray. All have a similar fragrance which is pleasant, event the lady of the manor commented on it so must be ok, but not too strong or overpowering.
I’ll be honest and say that I haven’t really used the active body spray as I find I’m quite sensitive to deodorant so have stuck to my usual one. But all the others have been well used. I really liked the shave gel, it certainly resulted in a nice shave you only need a small amount so lasts a long time. I also have used the face scrub a lot, given all the running I do I’m always conscious of keeping my skin clean from the sweat and using this means I feel clean and fresh.
Those 2 I would consider buying myself but the moisturisers I’m not so sure. They work fine but for me I don’t think I’d bother with 2 moisturisers and I prefer the slightly thicker E45 I use now both for general use and post shave. Might just be my skin type but that’s one thing I think I’d keep simple for now. I’m interested in trying out their shave butter at some point though, it sounds like a really interesting product and I think could be better than a traditional gel to use.
