I have a new style inspiration and her name is Linda Rodin.
For all you women that think you have to think, look, and act a certain way just because you’re a little older, Linda is proof-positive you can be super cool at any age. Now in her sixties, she is one of the most stylish and cool women around.
Linda modeled briefly in her twenties, but really hit her stride as a stylist for Henri Bendel and then as a fashion editor for Harper’s Bazaar. She now works as a freelance stylist (one of the best) and is a major skincare guru. She created her world known Olio Lusso facial oil in her bathroom because she was disillusioned with the skincare products on the market. The Rodin brand is expanding and has a cult following. She only uses her products on her face (with the exception of her signature lipstick), has never colored her hair (which turned grey in her thirties), and believes simple is better.
I can only hope to look as chic and stylish as Linda when I’m in my sixties…I really want to be her when I grow up:)

I’ve always been a big fan of Philosophy, so when I needed a new facial cleanser I looked to them for guidance. I was really needing something that remove eye make-up. They recommended their Purity Made Simple Mineral Oil-Free facial cleanser. I was a little skeptical. I have oily skin and couldn’t imagine washing my skin with, well, oil. But to my surprise, it works very well.
This facial cleansing oil is made without mineral oil and instead uses a blend of natural oils that melt away all traces of make up, dirt, oil, and impurities. It comfortably cleanses my skin while maintaining my natural moisture levels. It rinses off completely, leaving my skin feeling fresh, hydrated and not greasy. And the eye make up is bye-bye.
The facial oil is super easy to use. Squirt a tiny amount into hand and massage on DRY skin for a couple of minutes. Add a few drops of water, massage for a brief interval and then rinse with water. It doesn’t seem like it could possibly get rid of all the day’s gunk, but my cotton ball is clean after applying toner. And it has a very pleasant lemon scent, which just adds to is fabulousness.

This just may be my new favorite product. It is great for all skin types, easy to use, and pretty affordable.
