You’ll remember I reviewed a Rodin lip oil last year from their tantalising mermaid collection; this year Linda Rodin has launched a limited edition Goddess Aurora collection – inspired by her love affair with Italy. Goddess Aurora is the bringer of light, and so the products capture the glow of the sun and aim to illuminate.
I have been lucky enough to be gifted the Luxury Body Oil in Bergamot & Mimosa, from this limited edition collection. The oil creates an enlightening radiance for the body all year round.
The luxury body oil has the classic prettiness and class associated with Rodin Olio Lussos’ products, and the three tier colours all have different functions.
The gold section is an elixir of oils, containing Almond oil, Olive oil, Sunflower oil, Seabuckthorn oil in addition to Omegas 3,6,7 and 9. Allowing for a truly nourishing glow. The scent of Bergamot and Mimosa radiates Italian glamour, reminiscent of relaxing on a beach sipping a mimosa surrounded by a mountainous view, with your skin glowing gold from the sun.
The clear section is a blend of two glide enhancers, in order to make the skin feel soft.
The pink section is for hydration, hyaluronic acid (my favourite ingredient in the world) and glycerin enhance hydration.
How does it perform?
I’ve got to say I am thoroughly taken in by the aesthetics of this product, the three colours of this luxuriant oil are just mesmerising. And when you lay it down, or shake it gently before application – this is when you see the exact colour of a mimosa!
The luxury body oil comes in packaging once again designed by artist Donald Robertson, so it is fun, vibrant and authentic.
I love the ingredients, they are all natural and super nourishing to the skin. It’s also worth mentioning that this product is free of synthetic fragrance, Sulfate-free and Paraben-free. And reading about this product (as amazing as any description can possibly be) just doesn’t even give it the justice it deserves.
The oil hydrated my skin, and absorbed evenly so that I wasn’t left with a greasy sheen. I’ve found with other body oils in the past, they sort of sit on top of the skin rather than fully absorbing. The smell is something else, it’s almost like they have got that distinctive smell of holiday plus cocktails encapsulated into a bottle! It’s absolutely genius.
If you wish to awaken your inner goddess this summer, I’d highly recommend this product. It is stunning all round.
