Coming out of winter my skin feels like it has lost it’s zest, it looks dull, lifeless and a bit grey. I’ve been searching for a long time for a good face oil to energise my skin and make me look more radiant, and I have tried many different brands, but I didn’t find exactly what I was looking for, until I came across this Geranium and Orange Blossom oil by Rodin olio lusso.
Rodin olio lusso was developed by Linda Rodin, a legendary fashion stylist when she wasn’t happy with the ranges of premium skincare available. Linda first created the face oils at home, using essential oils she had learned about, while travelling around the world. You can read all about Linda’s journey here in Into the Gloss.
Every Rodin formula has a formula of 9 powerhouse oils, including Asian Sweet Almond oil, Moroccan Argan oil and Himalayan Apricot Seed oil. The oils also include omega oils and fatty acids, which help build a skin strengthening moisture barrier, and antioxidants to improve the skin’s appearance.
I love the packaging; the box is a really cheerful peach colour and I keep my oil in the box and in a dark cupboard, away from light, as the bottle is clear in colour, and this prevents the oil from going off.
HOW TO USE
Massage into your freshly cleansed face when skin is still slightly moist, morning and evening, wait for a few minutes, then apply your moisturiser.
As I massage it into my skin I can feel the quality of this oil immediately. My skin feels immediately moisturised and I notice that the oil doesn’t soak in and disappear, it continues to feel supple and replenished for hours afterwards. For me this oil is the best face oil I have ever used, the consistency is perfect, it is rich without feeling greasy, and your skin feels hydrated and plump – I love it!
I am not a morning person but I have been enjoying my new morning routine of cleansing my face, then massaging my Rodin oil in and doing some face yoga exercises for a few minutes before I get ready, and I really have noticed a difference. My skin looks more radiant and definitely has more colour. I am sure this is from massaging the oil in as I’m doing my face stretches; I think the two really work well together.
If you suffer from rosacea or have sensitive skin, you could try the Lavender Absolute Face Oil which will help calm the skin and reduce any redness and sensitivity.
This oil is pricey at £146 on Amazon but I think it is worth every penny. I prefer investing in one amazing skin product, rather than messing about trying out lots of products that ultimately really don’t do much, then sit in the cupboard for months.
