I have a huge style crush on Linda Rodin. The 60 year young famed stylist and creator of cult beauty product (and personal favorite) Rodin Olio Lusso. Rodin started out modeling (no surprise there) then went on to fashion photography, then started the first boutique in Soho called ‘The Hop Shop’, and eventually moved onto styling. Linda has worked with some of the biggest names in the industry and worked for heavy hitter like Harpers Bazaar, Henri Bendel, etc.
Rodin is her own best advertisement for Olio Lusso (which she developed in her bathroom). Olio Lusso is a blend of 11 aromatic oils, simple and effective. I use both the body oil and the face oil, I have yet to try the famed hair oil.
She explains the oil as such:
“What it does, it just makes your skin the best it can be naturally. When you put it on, in French it’s called ‘bien-être’ which means a sense of well-being. It feels good, it smells good and you feel kind of dewy. Not greasy, not shiny, just kind of alive. And also over time, your skin really improves. I’ve been using it for two-and-a-half years and my skin is so much better than it was. The oils all do different things—Rose Hip Seed Oil takes away age spots if you use it consistently, and Argan Oil is just, like, amazing. And for Bob Recine’s hair oil that we collaborated on, he added Juniper and Rosemary, which have great properties for hair.”
