Okay, my secret is out: I troll the beauty department at Barneys using their samples. Especially the Rodin Olio Lusso oil. I really love it, and it’s the ultimate in luxury for your body, just as the name suggests, but I just can’t seem to commit yet. It costs $110 for 4 oz…Not that my body doesn’t deserve it, but could it really be that much better than other oils? I love my PATYKA Precious Woods Oil, and I thought that was expensive, but for twice the volume, it’s a mere $65.
So what’s so special about Rodin oil? Unlike most that contain just a paltry few, it has 11 essential oils, all derived from flowers and botanicals. And every one of them is the best oil on the market. Each of the oils contributes to a soothing, softening, and increased glowing of the skin. You don’t need to apply a lot, thank goodness, and after a bath or shower when your body is slightly moist, it glides on without using much. For me, the smell is really the big selling point. No need to use perfume after applying this, and your room will smell heavenly for days! For unrivaled indulgence, this is it. As a gift for someone special (very special) who has everything, this is something she will appreciate, for sure. At Barneys New York for $110.
