RODIN Olio Lusso: a one hit wonder for skin?

Beauty Cred on 6 Aug 2008 at 12:00am

With Hollywood going crazy over natural moisturizers such Argan oil, Emu oil, and Arnica oil, here comes another all-natural hydrator made from essential oils: Linda Rodin's RODIN Olio Lusso.

What does 60-year-old stylist and former fashion editor Linda Rodin (pictured at left) have to say about her product? "I developed a hydrating skin product, made from 11 essential oils, on a whim. Now I've hooked all sorts of people, from my teenage niece to 94-year-old friend. It's an elixir that keeps me young," she tells Domino magazine.

Olio Lusso, touted as another miracle for the skin, has an interesting roster of essential oil ingredients: jasmine, sweet almond, apricot, evening of primrose, sunflower, jojoba, rose hip seed, calendula, neroli, arnica, and argan. Yes, you must have noticed that the last four oils are commonly used by many beauty brands.

Liv Tyler is a fan of Rodin Olio LussoIt's a bit surprising to find all these oils in a single product, and no wonder Olio Lusso has made it into the makeup bags of stars such as Liv Tyler, and supermodels Laeticia Casta and Alessandra Ambrosio. It has been getting a lot of press lately, with features from Marie Claire, People, Domino, and Vogue magazines.

Olio Lusso sells at $130, and if you're ready to shell out that much cash, you can find it through NYC celeb dermatologist, Dr. David Colbert, and boutiques such as Studio at Fred Segal, John Derian, and A Détacher.

I just made my own version and there will be enough for about 10 ounces and the oils (including neroli absolute and jasmine absolute) cost just over $100 CAD. I left out the arnica as it shouldn't be used daily.

I really like this oil, actually. Basins in easily and is really creating my epidermis look amazing. I go returning and forth between this and Weekend Riley's Juno oil. I do believe the fact that with anything this costly, it's best to try to get a reasonable scaled example so you can see if you like it. It could be a very costly error otherwise.Pure And Organic Argan Oil

I like the product, but my husband HATES the smell and I have to agree. I don't like it either. Has anyone else felt this way?

Um, your write up says this includes Emu oil, but on the Rodin Web site (and on your own list of ingredients), Emu oil is not listed as an ingredient. Can you please explain the discrepancy?

Have used this product and it is amazing. Your skin really does glow!! I've been using it for a little over a year. And I have seen Linda on the street and the photo does not do her justice. She has beautiful skin!

One can buy those oils from an online supplier and mix the equal amount of the 'magic oil' for about 10 bucks.

Well...not exactly, Jasmine oil is quite expensive as it is (about $40.00 for an ounce of pure jasmine oil) and some of the other oils are a bit difficult to find in their purest form...but I will agree that if you were to buy all of these essential oils you could make your own concotion, and you would have a lot more than 1 oz (as this mosturizer is sold in). But I do believe you would be spending a lot more than 120.00 bucks for all the ingredients if you are indeed getting "pure" essential oils.
