A long overdue review! I received a Rustic Art hamper from the GrennGood store for a competition that I had participated. It comprised of a face wash, body wash and the superb pre-shampoo deep conditioner. For a very long time I have been hoping that Rustic Art launched more products. They do have a fab collection of organic skin care products as well as organic hair oils that are awesome, but as a brand loyalist, I was always hoping that they bring out more products. And when I was told that they would be soon launching a range of face washes and body washes, I was happy and well more happy when these landed as a part of the gift hampers
Rustic Art Crimson Blush Rose Face Wash
The Rustic Art face wash came at the right time just when my regular face was getting over and I thought a change would do my skin some good. I was sent the Rustic Art Crimson Blush Rose Face Wash as a part of the hamper. When I saw the product I was not sure how it would fare, because till now I have been using face wash(es) that have been thick in consistency with most of them bordering on a gel like appearance. This one is absolutely watery. Now with the gel consistency, I have an idea about how much quantity one takes, but with the liquid one it took me about 2-3 washes to get the right quantity. You need just about one pump of the liquid (actually lesser!) to wash your face with this.
The fragrance is very mild, almost negligible like most of Rustic Art products. It keeps your face clean for a long time. I am prone to an oily T-zone within two hours of washing my face and with this face wash ( and also as it was with my regular face wash), the T zone does not get oily for at least 4 hours. I don’t need to follow up with a moisturiser post a wash at least till now. This bottle is likely to last all through the winter too and I’ll know how well it will leave the skin moisturised in that season too.
Price and Availability
Priced at INR 230, this 100 ml face wash is likely to last at least 3 months even with two washes because the quantity you require is pretty less. It has a shelf life of 18 months. You can buy this from Natural Mantra, Shophealthy, Ecotokri and OrganicShop.
What’s in it?
Organic Coconut Oil, Organic Corn Oil, Organic Sunflower Oil, Organic Castor Oil, Vit E, Veg Glycerin, Demineralized Water, Caustic Lye, Essential Oils of Rose & Mild Sandal, IFRA Certified Fragrance Of Rose.
I have been currently using the body wash from FE and Soultree and this was added to the collection. The consistency of the body wash is slightly thicker than the face wash, but still is a runny consistency. The nozzle that I have with this body wash dispenses out a very teeny amount and I need to dispense out the desired quantity with at least 4-5 pumps. You will need about a little more than half a teaspoon of the body wash to use in the shower, not more. The body wash has a light lingering fragrance, in fact I also use it for my boys.
Price and Availability
Priced at INR 390, this 200 ml body wash has a shelf life on 18 months. And just like all Rustic Art products you need really less quantity of the product. You can buy this here. I do need use a body moisturiser post using any body wash because my body tends to get dry all year around. You may not require the same for an oily skin.
What’s in it?
Organic Sunflower Oil, Organic Olive Oil, Organic Corn Oil, Organic Neem Oil, Organic Castor Oil, Vit – E Oil, Lotus Seed Extract, Aloe Vera, Veg Glycerine, De-mineralized Water, Blended Organic Essential Oils Of Lotus, Lemon & Rosemary.
The only issue I have with at least the body wash and the face wash is the packaging, I wish they used the extended nozzle packaging similar to what Omved has or maybe have the dispenser pump out more quantity of the product.
Yes , of course! I have always found Rustic Art products to be value for money. You may find some of the products like the moisturisers that are on the expensive side, but since it lasts so long, the money goes a really long way! And the best part, it is organic! Both the products are vegan and USDA certified.
