Rustic Art Aloevera Gel

© 2009 - 2014 www.perfectskincareforyou.com

Price: Rs 150ml for 100gms

Ingredients
Aloevera Gel, Lemon Extracts (lemon extract acts as a preservative)

Pros
- perfect for oily or combination skin or even normal skin, especially in summers
- firms up the skin
- gives a glow
- increases the skin's hydration levels
- dries up and gets absorbed very quickly into the skin
- products lasts really long
- can be used as a night treatment

Cons
- doesn't do anything for pores size but then it doesn't really claim that!!!
- its not organic :(
- don't know if it really removes tanning

My Experience
The gel is colorless and comes in a sturdy plastic jar from which you can scoop out the gel. It smells of nothing, just a faint aloe vera smell. The texture is just like a dehydrated aloe gel. It goes a little (very little) sticky in the end just like the actual aloe gel does which can be simply washed off. The product will last you two-three months which is pretty good.

I really like it. The gel feels cool on the skin but that doesn't last more than 10 seconds. It gets dried up and absorbed very very quickly so you have to apply it as quickly as possible otherwise it will dry up on your palm. The pros really say everything about what I experienced after using the product for the past one month. And, I have already recommended it to many people!!!

Dry skin people should also use it and since I was facing dry skin in the past month, I used to follow this with oil. And, gradually, I noticed that my dryness reduced and my skin became more supple and hydrated even though I was taking less of water. And, there is a glow on my skin which I completely love. I can also see that it has firmed up my skin really well, not that my skin was loose but I can see the difference.

Ok, so, the product is not organic which had disappointed me and I would love it if they get an organic variant too. And, I don't think that it did anything for my tanning but I am not really sure on this point. If I do see a difference in the future, I will definitely report back. I also tried using it as a leave-in conditioner in my hair but it didn't really work out. I shall try that again, though!!

    3. yeah even for me price had been an issue earlier but when I considered the messy way of extracting the aloe from the leaf and all the time taken, I am more likely to go for this :D and, to b frank, I do waste money on buying useless stuff so I may as well buy something good and this jar would last around 2-3 months which is decent enough for me. and, yes, aloe is so versatile :) and, I am pretty sure they will come up with organic version of aloe too soon but then it will be more expensive :(

    1. hey Taps!!! not used the lass cosmetics one but this is not comparable to patanjali at all...trust me...this is that good, exactly like the real aloe gel. give it a try sometime. I don't like patanjali aloe gel coz it has colors and parabens and it feels really sticky.

    1. hey Lancy...yes, its affordable enough :) and, no it doesn't make the face greasy at all. in fact aloevera always controls the oil production which is why it is most suitable for oily and combination skin.

Hi Swati,the Ruatic Art Aloe Gel is Organic.Very soon all our products will be organic including shampoo,conditioners,face and body wash and lip balm as we are getting our whole production unit organic certified.And yes,our gel is free of Carbopol, the thickener hence non sticky.Try to mix it with shampoo and you may feel the difference.For your information,the base of our organic shampoo range is certified aloe juice.
    Will inform you the launching date of these products very soon...

    10. I just love dis product !!!! This is so so so so so awesome and something that suits my oily and sensitive skin... Having used Patanjali all these years i thought all gels would be d same making skin hard and sticky... But finally this product gave me a soft n supple skin... it is so light on the skin and i must really thank u for this.. It s worth d cost too bcoz am sure if used alone on face this pdt will last long for almost about 3-4 months. Thanks once again :)
