I went for many years really only using one body product. Suddenly I’m falling in love with new ones left and right. So I figured I should hop to it, and start telling you about them!
First up, is one of the absolute best. Lina Hanson contacted me a few months ago and asked if I’d like to try her serums, and lucky me, she sent both! The face serum is wonderful, and I especially love how well it wears under makeup, but today, we are talking about the divine inspiration that is her Global Body Serum.
There’s no way I could begin this review without telling you how great this blended oil serum smells. I’m usually am not a vanilla fan, however, in this serum the vanilla oil’s sweetness is perfectly balanced with a slight citrus tang. You will find your nose drawn to random body parts when you’re wearing this because the fragrance is truly addictive.
It’s delightful going on, and soft enough that you’ll be happy to find that it sticks around. Lina seems to have a knack for creating incredible blended scents. Take a moment to read this beautiful ingredients list:
$63, 3.4 oz INGREDIENTS: oryza sativa (rice) bran oil, persea gratissima (avocado) oil*, prunus armeniaca (apricot) kernel oil*, argania spinosa (argan) nut oil*, bertholletia excelsia (brazil) nut oil, cucurbita maxima (pumpkin) seed oil*, camellia oleifera (camellia) seed oil*, tocopherol (vitamin e), citrus paradisi (grapefruit) oil, vanilla planifolia (vanilla) oil, citrus junos (yuzu) oil.
Lina’s oil is hand blended in small batches, and it feels as luxurious as it sounds. It’s not like anything I’ve ever used. Yes, it’s an oil blend, but it feels almost creamy and absorbs faster than I thought a body oil could. In fact, this is one of the fastest absorbing products I’ve ever used.
This should be welcome news to the body oil skeptics out there (I know quite a few!) This one leaves your skin glowing and fragrant with an overall softness that isn’t greasy or sticky at all. If you’re picky about your body product textures, this is a serum for you.
When I say glowing, I mean it. I did a double take in the mirror the other day after using this serum. My skin looked… Pretty!
This serum is an absolute winner for me. At times I couldn’t decide whether to just slather it on generously or hoard it for winter. Obviously, I saved some up for winter, and I’ve been using it a lot lately. However, you really don’t you don’t have to hoard this one too preciously. If used while your skin is still damp, a little goes a long way. Plus, it comes in such a generous size that this bottle will last you a good long while. Miraculously, I’ve still got half a bottle saved up for the rest of my winter.
Snow is falling outside and my heat is on higher than I’d like it to be. Dry skin isn’t just on its way, it’s already settled in. This year I have an entire arsenal of fantastic body products to keep me hydrated. Bring it on Winter! (Just kidding, here’s to hoping it’s a mild one.)
What are you using to stay hydrated this winter? Let us know in the comments!
