I could not find a better title to talk about two of my summer favourite beauty products: RODIN's Olio Russo Lip Balm and RoC's Tan Prolonging Lotion. RODIN has now reached the status of ‘cult label’ thanks to the praises received by fashion & beauty insiders like Into the Gloss, and many make-up artists say there is nothing better than its Luxury Face Oil to prep the models’ skin during fashion weeks or shootings. What attracted me to this brand is the fact that they only have six products, they are completely natural and based on a blend of essential oils. When I tried the Lip Balm it was love at first touch (it is a great moisturiser and it can perfectly replace a fresh pink gloss) and at first sight (the packaging is so beautiful that I was almost sorry to use it!). This little beauty is quite pricey, but considering that it can last almost six months, I keep indulging in it.
Regarding the RoC's Tan Prolonging Lotion, I think this is one of RoC's best kept secrets: I have been using it for many years and not only as a great after sun lotion. I use it as an alternative of my regular body lotion (Kiehl’s Creme de Corps) for at least a month after I come back from my holidays to keep my skin looking healthy and nicely tan. I would like to stress that this is not a self-tan product, so you will not have unpleasant surprises with its application: the cream absorbs immediately leaving the skin soft and hydrated. I know that with the September issues on the newsstand, we feel that the summer is almost over, but if am decided to post a something summery at least one per week...Hope you will like it!
