Stylist Linda Rodin who has worked with every celeb from the late Herb Ritts to Madonna. Of course, she had access to every big-ticket “miracle” potion on the market through her connections, but like many of us, she was always disappointed. Rodin researched and experimented for two years until she found a concoction of essential oils that left her middle-aged skin soft and subtle. After positive feedback from her famous friends and even her doctor, her Olio Lusso hit shelves. The blend of arnica, calendula, neroli, sunflower, and argan oil delivers a potent dose of antioxidants, fatty acids, and antibacterial benefits to moisturize and heal all skin types. After I tested so many other products, my naturally oily skin was painfully dry, tight, and flaky-- and, dare I say, magically transformed overnight with a few drops. My skin was more balanced, moisturized without greasiness; breakouts were less frequent; and I glowed. Beauty editors always test lines and move on, but Olio Lusso is now one of my classics.
