Lina Hanson Global Face Serum

Hi Lovelies!

I hope you’re all doing well today :-]

I’m super excited today to share another fantastic serum with you and it’s especially great not only because of it’s ingredients, but also because the ideals and integrity behind them.

I’ve been using this serum for about a good month now and I’m really impressed, but before I get into that, I wanted to talk about Lina Hanson – the woman behind this lovely serum.

Lina Hanson is a celebrity makeup artist who is originally from Sweden and began her brand as a way to offer the best ingredients for your skin to all ages, with any skin type, of any ethnic background, anywhere in the world.

With that philosophy in mind, Lina set about formulating a simple, yet effective serum with carrier and essential oils from all over the world in it’s formula. From Morocco, South Africa, and India to Tunisia, Peru and Japan, she’s utilized potent anti-aging oils that have been used and loved in various cultures around the globe for centuries in order to offer these beauty benefits to anyone, anywhere, anytime.

I was so thrilled to receive a bottle of this lovely oil!  It comes in a lovely dark glass bottle that feels really high quality and luxe.

First off, it has kind of peculiar scent that was hard to ignore. It’s not that it’s particularly strong, but it just smelled odd to me. I know that it’s my own personal preference because when I asked my boyfriend, he looked at me like I was trippin’ and said it just smells like flowers. So, there you have it. It smells of flowers.

Aside from the odd scent, this serum is super nourishing, but surprisingly not heavy on the skin at all. It absorbs into the skin almost instantly and leaves no residue behind.

It is quite expensive at $85, but it includes a high concentration of top quality oils such as argan oil, baobab oil, and marula oil for their hydrating and healing properties.

After using this for nearly a month, I can attest to this serum’s effectiveness as I’ve seen a higher clarity in my skin, minimal breakouts, faster healing in spots, and a more even toned complexion.

Although this serum seems high priced, it’s for a great cause. With it’s use of sustainable, eco friendly, and naturally effective ingredients, this is a serum that is quite effective without harming the environment or your body. At the same time, it’s made in the USA so it helps support our economic growth. Lastly, as if that’s not enough, the Lina Hanson brand donates a portion of their profits to a different charity every 3 months as a way of giving back.

Have You Ever Heard of the Lina Hanson Global Face Serum?

I’d Love to Know Your Thoughts in the Comments!

I am sooo excited to be reviewing this incredible Marula Oil today for you!

I have been drooling over this stuff through my laptop for months and months and months. Not only is this face oil absolutely amazing, but there is much to be said for what’s behind the production and sourcing of this face oil.

The Leakey Collection was started by the Leakeys in 2002 as a way to help local Kenyans get sustainable entrepreneurial opportunities. With the idea of bringing the powers of pure marula oil to  women around the world, they’ve been able to give many Kenyans an ethical source of income that does not interfere with their life or culture. To learn more about their amazing journey and collaboration with Dr. Ashton Kaidi, read more here. You can also learn more about the harvesting process here.

Aside from their incredible program, their pure Marula Oil is truly amazing.

I normally wouldn’t review a product before using it for at least a few weeks, but after using this for nearly a week, I already notice the incredible hydrating properties of this lovely oil. It’s unlike any other oil I’ve ever tried because it’s extremely moisturizing without being the least bit oily. It soaks into the skin straight away and leaves no residue behind. Plus, unlike a lot of oils I’ve tried, this one has a really nice subtle scent. It’s like a very soft citrus smell or something, but it’s not overpowering; it’s just calming and beautiful. I noticed that even after only a week my skin was more hydrated without being super oily and not a breakout in sight! I also feel like this face oil lends a bit of soft vibrancy to my skin. It’s also really great as a primer if you want your foundation to look velvety and a bit dewy.

This is definitely one to check out, not only for it’s great beauty benefits, but also for the humanity and sustainability behind the product and company itself.
