Whenever I think of luxury oils for face and body one brand that always comes to mind is Linda Rodin’s Olio Lusso range of luxurious oils. These oils are a part of Linda Rodin’s personal story and her search for pure, effective, simple but luxurious skin care. In fact the idea that there is beauty in simplicity was a guiding mantra. This founder wanted to use positive ageing products that would naturally nurture and care for the skin. The first blend Jasmine & Neroli face oil was born in 2007 and is now iconic.
Rodin oils are designed to work holistically by instilling a sense of wellbeing making using them a mindful experience. They are also designed to be used by most skin tones leaving the skin supple, moisturised and glowing thanks to the ingredients that work synergistically to soften and condition the skin leaving it feeling nourished and loved.
All of the Rodin lush products have the ability to literally boost your spirits with the power and beauty of their pure fragrance. Inhaling the scent of Linda oils makes me imagine what it would be like to literally live in a flower garden.
Each of the oils have an impressively rich quality about them and yet are lightweight and easy to use so your skin simply absorbs them, leaving you with a gorgeous glow: 2 or 3 drops are all you need, so if you do use them day & night fortunately a little oil goes a long way.
The new addition
Her latest launch of Geranium & Orange Blossom face oil continues this theme by combining geranium oil from South Africa and orange flower absolute from Morocco making this oil is quite uplifting and zesty.
Geranium oil is known for its ability to restore balance to the skin, apparently it was used by the ancient Egyptians for promoting beautiful radiant skin. This oil is particularly good at treating acne and reducing inflammation so it is considered to be one of the best oils to use the sensitive skin conditions like eczema and dermatitis but as with all oils to a skin test first and see how you get on with it. Another claim to fame for geranium oil is its ability to minimise the look of fine lines and wrinkles so it’s a great oil to have in your positive ageing toolkit.
It is also claimed that geranium oil can help to alleviate anxiety, balance your emotions and hormones by enhancing your mood.
Lavender Absolute Face Oil
This oil is pure luxury. It’s a blend of French lavender absolute and Bulgarian lavender …and as you can imagine it smells amazing! It also contains calendula, Chilean rose hip oil Arganoil, jojoba and eveningprimrose oil. I have to say that when I first opened the bottle I was surprised at just how much gorgeous lavender scent hit me …seriously this oil is so potent that you could just apply a couple of drops to your pulse points if you wanted to wear this as a perfume.
For your face, it’s great for hydration and you only need a few drops. For your spirit, it’s all about the calming and soothing power of lavender.
It’s great for anyone seeking hydrated skin, and a luminous complexion. You can use it on a damp face on its own or under your other Skincare.
The Luxury Body Oil – Jasmine & Neroli
This body oil is sexy. It is a perfumed oil, that moisturises your skin leaving it soft and supple, while at the same time leaving your skin beautifully scented with the aroma of Jasmine. When you buy this oil, you are getting a body oil + a fragrance, so if you love florals and in particular Jasmine, then you’ll love this oil, as Jasmine is the top note, so if you are a perfume wearer, you’ll want to wear a fragrance that compliments it or just wear Olio Lusso on its own!
As you would expect, these oil formulations are paraben, phthalate, silicone and sulphate free …all you get is pure essential oils sourced from the best places in the world.
This is a luxury range and with its price point for many it will be an indulgence, but what an indulgence it is!
