I have always been a person with sensitive skin, and for that reason, I tend to seek out natural products that I know will be gentle on my skin. The good people at Rustic Elements reached out and wanted to send me their Rustic Elements Natural Bar Soap Gift Set to try, and upon reading about them and their products I thought they were a great fit.
Just like a lot of us, when the founders of Rustic Elements read the ingredients to some of the skincare products on the market they were overwhelmed by the not-so-natural ingredients so they decided to create something that everyone would understand. They took a centuries-old recipe of only 4 ingredients and created their first castile soap. They took that further with lip balms, face creams, shampoos, and more, all with the desire to create something more natural. They take extreme pride in creating vegan, cruelty-free, non-GMO personal care products, handmade with simple ingredients.
The Rustic Elements Natural Bar Soap Gift Set contains the following items: A Texas farm-grown natural loofah, a Wooden Soap Dish made from reclaimed wood in Oregon, Lavender Fair Trade Exfoliating Sugar Scrub, and Handmade Soaps: Cleansing Charcoal, Orange & Hibiscus, and Radiant Rose. All are free of parabens, phthalates, sulfates, chemicals, and preservatives.
So how does the soap actually perform? Well, first of all, none of the soaps broke out my skin, so that is already a huge positive for me!
The Cleansing Charcoal has a very faint scent, and it really didn’t leave a scent on my skin, but my skin did feel amazing after using it.
The Radiant Rose smells exactly like roses, so if you like that scent you will love this bar. I noticed that it actually leaves a rose scent on my skin, but not too overpowering. It also left my skin feeling so soft.
My favorite is the Invigorating Orange & Hibiscus, it is so refreshing and smells like you just peeled a fresh orange. The scent filled my shower so it was almost like a spa experience. I look forward to using that one a lot!
All of the soaps had a nice lather, as you may or may not know, some natural soap doesn’t lather as much as regular soap, but not these, they were great!
I recently bought a lavender plant because I just love the scent, so when I saw the sugar scrub was lavender scented I just knew I was gonna love it and I do. If you’ve never had a sugar scrub you should try one. It does amazing things for your skin, and this one was no different. The feel, the scent, all of it was perfect. This will be a staple in my shower.
If you are looking for a nice gift set for yourself, or for a gift, you should really check out Rustic Elements. As I stated earlier they also offer other natural products as well.
