"Oh, the Beauty of Simplicity!"
Today we want to talk about a skin care product that was created by a friend of mine, Linda Rodin, in hopes to simplify your beauty routine. Coco & Cyd celebrate the motivated and busy woman and know all too well that complex beauty products and regimens can become overwhelming and almost stressful. Our skin can become dryer as we age, so it is very important to moisturize. We have found one product that can take the place of many products, and it will change your skin and how you feel overall. Here is the story as posted on Linda’s website.
In her sixties today, Rodin is the model of spare elegance. She says of herself, “I really don't spend too much time getting ready! I like to be out the door in no time.“ It’s this natural, devil-may-care brand of beauty that won her modeling jobs when she moved to Italy to study at age eighteen.
Rodin has dressed the most gorgeous and charismatic women in the world; from Laetitia Casta, Madonna and Halle Berry to supermodels Gisele Bundchen and Adriana Lima.
Despite access to ultra-exclusive skincare lines in this heady milieu, Rodin became disillusioned with their anti-aging claims and complicated regimens.
“What I longed for was something far simpler—products for the here-and-now, that caress the skin noticeably and without any delay. Nothing out there did quite that.” So she brought her style smarts, her instinct for beauty, and her demand for perfection to the skincare arena. After experimenting with essential oils in her bathroom for nearly two years, Rodin put the finishing touches on her first dream elixir, the original RODIN olio lusso face oil, in 2007. (The name—which translates as luxury oil —is in honor of the easygoing Italian beauty that has long inspired Linda’s own style). The models and makeup artists she worked with tried and loved it, and soon RODIN olio lusso was selling to a cult following at a few select stores. Magazine coverage and an international buzz followed.
As venues worldwide began selling RODIN olio lusso, customers began asking, is there more? Yes, the RODIN olio lusso collection is growing—each new item containing a similar, near-magical blend of essential oils, starting with a body oil, then a hair oil (a collaboration with renowned hair stylist Bob Recine), and most recently a lip balm, hand –body cream, perfume, scented candle and a facial cleansing powder launching June 2013.
We hope you enjoyed the story! Treat yourself to a new beauty product or perhaps gift one to someone you know who is in need of a simple yet effective routine. The holiday season is coming just around the corner and it time for us to take a deep breathe and pat ourselves on the back for completing another great year of life.

Quote to take with you for the week:
“I think one does feel more liberated and independent when one gets
older. More honest and open with yourself and others. But you still have
insecurities—they’re different, but they don’t totally go away. But you
reach a point and say ‘That’s OK.’ In the end, nobody’s perfect, and
we’re all doing the best we can.'”
