Current Obsession: Skin&Co Roma's Truffle Therapy Body Milk and Serum

(Courtesy: Skin&Co Roma)We love a luxury beauty product with a good story behind it––especially when the item in question is silky, nourishing, and smells like an afternoon on a Mediterranean beach.

Meet our new favorite body lotion: Skin&Co Roma's Truffle Therapy Body Milk ($35). Antioxidants, vitamins, and essential amino acids are the secrets to success for this delicious body milk moisturizer. There's even a special signature truffle extract that stimulates superoxide dismutase production, which, in case you haven't heard, destroys harmful free radicals.

And as promised, the tale behind this lotion (and the company's other products) is just as delicious. Once upon a time in Italy––Umbria, to be exact––a woman named Giuseppina Balestra began making botanical oils with the truffle extract grown on her family's farms. The year was 1950. Fast forward to today, and it turns out these natural ingredients have been proven to contain powerful anti-oxidant and anti-aging properties. Snap! No wonder Giusepplina's potions were so popular. In fact, back in the day, so coveted were her oils and skin treatments (based on traditional Italian recipes) that just two years later, she opened a shop in Rome that became the Dolce Vita go-to spot of European movie stars.

These days, our leading lady's company Skin&Co Roma still thrives in the hands of her grandson, Gabriel. Available at Henri Bendel, Fred Segal, Dermstore.com, Amazon, and QVC, Skin&Co Roma's artisanal products have been modernized, revamped, and tested in the hands of Italy’s largest cosmetology center, while still remaining true to Giuseppina's original recipes. Plus, these sustainable and environmentally sound products feel and smell great, too.

Bonus obsession: We also love the Truffle Therapy Boosting Anti-Aging Serum ($75). Truffles, in the form of pure tuber melanosporum extracts, serve as the fountain of youth in this skin-plumping, hydrating, anti-oxidant serum, which also fights free radicals and reduces fine lines. The serum also contains a collagen production-booster, brightening hyaluronic acid, penthenol (which stimulates cellular growth) and olive-oil extract for moisture.

Giuseppina would be proud.
