Designed by the renowned stylist and former fashion editor, Linda Rodin, RODIN olio lusso – composed of an aromatic blend of 11 essential oils derived from flowers and other botanicals; Every one of them known for their skin-soothing, softening and glow-giving properties.
Blended together, they leave the skin looking and feeling instantly supple, radiant and hydrated. RODIN olio lusso is more than a liquid moisturizer. It is a skin scent that is chemical free, and makes your skin the best it can be naturally.
Jasmine and Calendula oils help calm and soothe irritated skin. Sensitive skin or mature skin that is dry or damaged is dramatically softened by these oils, which helps reduce tension and scarring of the face. Jasmine oil also has therapeutic properties; its aroma both relaxes and relieves stress.
Another ingredient, Evening Primrose oil, also works to reduce irritation, but what sets it apart from the others is its ability to reduce inflammation and swelling of the skin. EPO also helps to prevent clogs, which makes it a very necessary addition to this product.
Moisturizing is arguably the most important aspect of skin care, which is why Rodin Olio Lusso employs four different types of oil to nourish and hydrate the skin. Almond, Apricot, Jojoba, and Sunflower oils all work as emollients, providing your skin with a protective barrier against external pollutants, which helps prevent dryness.
A year in the making via test marketing on friends who are celebrities ( Molly Ringwald ), makeup artists ( Gucci Westman, Patti Dubroff ), and beauty editors ( Vogue, Elle ) who all rave about how amazing it is, this facial oil can be used on its’ own or added to your favorite skin care solutions for an extra boost.
I would call Rodin Olio Lusso the luxury facial oil mecca, given its hefty price tag of £ 90. This divinely scented oil ( you may disagree if you can’t stand the earthy jasmine aroma ) is the best facial oil I had ever used.
I wouldn’t give you the false reassurance that this oil is non greasy at all. For God’s sake, it’s an oil, of course it’ll behave like any other oil. However, Olio Lusso is fluid light in texture & it’s the lightest facial oil / massage oil I had ever used. I can endorsed that the texture & weight of this oil is not going to be any heavier that any of your high end, equally expensive night cream.
Does this oil fight wrinkles / turn back time / firms & de-sag ? No, Linda never claims that.
Is it worth its cult status & astronomical price tag ? Yes, IMO.
This fabulous face oil leaves my skin soft, pacified, plumped & glowing, and I really enjoy its aromatherapeutic effect. This cult facial oil & its application is a ritual, a rather pampering ritual that brings that helps your skin to be its best.
Many claims that they could make a similar concoction with home made recipes. Well, if you could produce a blend as outstanding as Rodin’s, you could try; But unless you’ve tried Rodin Olio Lusso, you’ve no idea how divine this oil is. ( Trust me, I had tried some homemade blends utilising the most exclusive jasmine oil & rose otto essential oil, they’re of course great, but none even come close to Rodin’s creation )
So, yes, I am converted. Rodin’s Olio Lusso is officially endorsed by LPB as the best luxury facial oil.
