I love citrus scents, but sometimes I wonder if they're maybe a little young for me. Lina Hanson's new Global Body Serum manages to circumvent this question, making citrus seem grown up and even sexy. A delightful combination of yuzu, pink grapefruit and vanilla, the serum smells so good, I'm kind of tempted to save it to use as a perfume oil!
That, however, would mean missing out on the full benefits of this product. It's a gorgeous body oil that's jam-packed with skin-friendly ingredients. Rice bran, apricot kernel, and brazil nut oils are known to improve skin elasticity, while argan, pumpkin seed, and camellia provide anti-aging benefits. The oil absorbs quickly and hydrates without leaving any greasy feeling on your skin. I'm someone who only moisturizes once, post-shower, and the serum keeps my skin feeling soft and hydrated until the next time, even if that's a couple days later. It's great all over and it works wonders on those extra dry spots like elbows and knees too!
At $63, it's definitely a luxury item, but if you've got the money to treat yourself, it's one that's worth the splurge. Lina Hanson's products support fair trade and sustainable harvesting and the key ingredients are produced by women's cooperatives and farmers worldwide.
To celebrate the launch, Lina has also partnered with the International Rescue Committee and is donating 15% of the proceeds of both her Global Body and Face serums, today, June 15, through August 15.
