Beauty Shop: Rodin Olio Lusso Body Oil
Behold my latest beauty obsession: Rodin Olio Lusso Body Oil. I first heard of this genius product through Alice + Olivia's fun 4 AM Finds feature, which Gwyneth Paltrow guest-edited a few weeks ago. It was listed as one of her fave products, and you know how it goes with Gwynnie and I--she's kind of a hero of mine. And so I made my way over to John Derian, conveniently located just a few blocks from the CA Creative offices, to pick up a bottle and see what all the fuss was about. And well, it definitely didn't let me down. This stuff is my personal dream come true when it comes to beauty.
First of all, the main oil in it is jasmine, which happens to be my favorite scent in the world. After a shower, you let a few drops leak out of the bottle and smooth it over your shoulders, arms, chest, legs, and wherever else you need a bit of extra moisture, and before you know it, your skin is dewy, glowing, and smelling ever-so-subtly of jasmine. It's made of a seriously amazing blend of several essential oils, including argan oil (which I love on it's own as well), sweet almond, and apricot.
At $110, the bottle is definitely on the pricey side, but all you need are a few little drops every day, so at that rate, it should last you a good six months, at least (I'll confirm that at a later date). And with the way it makes your skin smell and feel, it's worth every penny. You'll never want to use another body moisturizer again. You can buy it HERE. Happy weekend, everyone! See you Monday. xo
