RODIN Olio Lusso

rodin-olio-lusso-face-oil-070411-1It's popping up in every magazine and the blogosphere, and there's a good reason why—RODIN Olio Lusso is by far one of the most exceptional skin care products on the market right now. Created by stylist Linda Rodin, the elixir comes in a dropper-like formula. Dab a few drops in your hands, spread sparingly on your face, and not only will you have an instantaneous glow, but the product—chockfull of essential oils—will revamp your entire face.

I've been trying a sample for the last week, doling out a few precious drops each day and from my first-hand experience, I can report that RODIN Olio Lusso works. I use a heavy anti-acne retinoid product that really combats my acne but also wreaks havoc on my face with redness and constant peeling. Using RODIN Olio Lusso for just one week has mellowed out the peeling and calmed my face, and on top of that, not a single acne flare up since I've been using this new product. The price tag is $140 and while that may initially feel steep, spending money on your face, especially when a product works, is well worth the investment. If there's one thing missing from your beauty arsenal, this is it.

 

For more information, visit oliolusso.com or oliolusso-shop.com. The product is also sold online and at Barneys.com.

The Binding of Edmund McMillen

How a Santa Cruz designer created one of the most unlikely hits in video game history

 

Sun in Leo, Rosy Star, Venus and Uranus Retrograde

Three major celestial events occur this week. Wednesday, the Sun enters Leo, highlighting the heart center of everyone. Leo is a sign of deep sensitivity (along with Cancer). Wednesday is also the feast day of St. Mary Magdalene, one of the most misunderstood women in the Bible. Saturday, July 25, Venus turns stationary retrograde at 0 Virgo (progressed Regulus, the Law, Hall of Records). Venus retrogrades for 44 days and nights, forming one petal of a five-pointed rosy star (pentagram) in the sky (five retrogrades over eight years = star). Venus retrograde turns values upside down. Our usual sense of beauty, values, the real price of things, relationships—all turn into a bundle of confusion. We don’t seem to know anything. Luxury goods are mispriced, values are jumbled, we wonder who that person is we’re in relationship with. We don’t know where our money is or where it’s gone. Venus, in daily life, represents values (resources, money, possessions and quality of relationships). Venus retrograde asks, “What do I value?” Venus retrograde puts us in touch with what has changed and what is truly of value in our lives. Venus retrogrades from 0 Virgo to 14 degrees Leo (July 25-Sept. 6). Leo is about the self and our creativity, which is how we come to know and value ourselves. We “know ourselves through what we create.” In Venus (values) retrograde (inner focus) we will ask, “What are values (not just money and finances)? What are my values? What do I create? How do I value my creations? Do I value myself?” Sunday, Uranus—planet of all things new, revelatory and revolutionary—also retrogrades (from 20 to 16 degrees Aries) until the full moon of Christmas Day. Five months of Uranus retrograde. In July and continuing on through the following months we have many planets retrograding. Things therefore slow down. Everyone’s focus becomes subjective, hidden by veils and curtains. A time when inner reserves of strength are available. A time of protection.
