I've decided to add a facial care line to Simply Rustic, starting simple, yet effective, maybe even a little odd.
First off is the Cleansing Oil which can seem odd but we do know oil dissolves oil and our skin produces oil, sometimes too much or too little and if you are lucky...just the right amount. This product will be made based on your skin type and the concept is to clean your face without stripping the natural oils your skin produces. It is a deep cleaning method but can be used daily. The Cleansing Oil will come in a 2oz Cobalt Blue Dropper Glass Bottle and will have ingredients like Castor Seed Oil (which is a cleansing oil in itself), Grape Seed Oil (wonderful astringent properties), Organic Raw Honey (antibacterial/soothing properties), Vegetable Glycerin (great for acne prone skin and helps retain moisture), Organic Pumpkin Seed Oil (wonderful for dry skin and has many antiaging properties), Organic Carrot Seed Oil (helps maintain elasticity of your skin), Raw Avocado Oil (great for sensitive skin, antioxidant and penetrates deeply into the skin) and Golden Jojoba Oil (helps restore sebum balance) to name a few.
Second, Face Food is another cleanser but also can be used as a mask. Face Food gently exfoliates and removes toxins. It is a dry powder and comes in a 4oz 100% Recycled Glass Jar with a Cork Top and inlcudes ingredients like Honey Powder, Yogurt Powder, Coconut Milk Powder, Pink Clay, White Clay, Green Clay, Chamomile Powder, Bee Pollen, Aloe Vera Powder, Pomegranate Fruit Powder, Raspberry Fruit Powder, Strawberry Fruit Powder, Lemon Fruit Powder, Green Tea Extract Powder and Pumpkin Seed Powder to name a few. Water, fruit juice and the Cleansing Oil allow it to be a cleanser while making a paste with lemon juice, honey, mashed fruit, apple cider vinegar, yogurt, etc makes a mask. I know 4oz does not seem like a lot but all you need is less than a quarter size amount for the cleanser...comparable to 8-10oz of a liquid cleanser.
Third, if you are looking for that extra umph of anti-aging, anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory and soothing properties then you will love the night time serum (still working on a name). The serum has all these wonderful benefits plus more from Red Raspberry Seed Oil, Pomegranate Seed Oil, Pumpkin Seed Oil, Rosehip Seed Oil and Carrot Seed Oil to name a few. Available in a 1oz Cobalt Blue Glass Bottle with a Treatment Pump. Put on at night around the eyes and mouth and those dry areas.
Finally, a lighter option to get moisture back in your skin after spending the day outside...massage and spray oils.
Oh and there are two new lip scrubs...Raspberry and Zingy (Pomegranate). All new products and complete details will be listed within the week. Sale Prices are still going on too!
Now on to the good part. I put together a little giveaway of "A Few of My Favorite Things" (few, because I can't afford all my favorite things :-) to end the Anniversary celebration of Simply Rustic.
