I’ve had my eye Rodin for a while because I find it so chic. If you’ve read about or seen pictures of founder Linda Rodin you will understand where the chic comes from.

Linda’s approach to beauty is simple. She prefers products that caress the skin noticeably over the anti-ageing claims and complicated regimes. After experimenting with essential oils in her bathroom for nearly two years, Rodin put the finishing touches on her first dream elixir in 2007. The original RODIN olio lusso face oil.

At 190€ this oil is definitely a luxury purchase. The base fragrance is jasmine which I absolutely love. Whilst the packaging looks beautiful the clear glass bottle will not preserve the oil from degrading day light. It’s better to store it in the box or a bathroom cabinet. Which is a shame because the start feature of this product is the packaging. You can purchase less beautiful yet just as effective face oils for much less. The fragranced plant oils have to the potential to cause irritation so sensitive skin.

This product is all about the luxury, it’s the ultimate skin treat. It looks precious and should be treated as such, stored away for occasional use when you want to feel special and pampered. Only then does it warrant the expensive price tag.
