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.

Gemini Sun, Pentecost, Shavuot—Enlightenment and Gladness

As the sun enters Gemini on Sunday, sign of speaking, communication, thinking, inter-relations, writing and understanding languages, the feast days of Pentecost & Shavuot (Catholic and Jewish festivals) occur. During Pentecost’s 50 days after Easter, tongues of fire appear above the heads of the disciples, providing them with the ability to understand all languages and all feelings hidden in the minds and hearts of humanity. It’s recorded that Pentecost began with a loud noise, which happened in an upper room (signifying the mind). The Christ (World Teacher) told his disciples (after his ascension) when encountering a man at a well carrying a water pot (signs for Age of Aquarius) to follow him to an upper room. There, the Holy Spirit (Ray 3 of Divine Intelligence) would overshadow them, expand their minds, give them courage and enable them to teach throughout the world, speaking all languages and thus able to minister to the true needs of a “seeking” humanity. Pentecost (50 days, pentagram, Ray 5, Venus, concrete and scientific knowledge, the Ray of Aquarius) sounds dramatic, impressive and scary: The loud noise, a thunderous rush of wind and then “tongues of fire” above the heads of each disciple (men and women). Fire has purpose. It purifies, disintegrates, purges, transforms and liberates (frees) us from the past. This was the Holy Spirit (Ray 3, love and wisdom) being received by the disciples, so they would teach in the world and inform humanity of the Messiah (Christ), who initiated the new age (Pisces) and gave humanity the new law (adding to the 10 Commandments of the Aries Age) to Love (Ray 2) one another. Note: Gemini is also Ray 2. Shavuot is the Jewish Festival of Gladness, the First Fruits Festival celebrating the giving of the 10 Commandments to Moses as the Aries Age was initiated. Thus, we have two developmental stages here, Jewish festival of the Old Testament. Pentecost of the New Testament. We have gladness, integrating both.

Soquel Vineyards

If Soquel Vineyards partners Peter and Paul Bargetto and Jon Morgan were walking down the street wearing their winning wine competition medals, you’d hear them coming from a mile away. This year was particularly rewarding for the Bargettos and Morgan—they won two Double Gold Medals and five Gold Medals at January’s San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition.
