I just finished my bottle of Lina Hanson Global Face Serum and thought it was about time I write about it. I knew I had to have it after reading green celebrity makeup artist Katey Denno’s blog, The Beauty of It Is. She mentions using it to prep clients skin before makeup like she did here on the beautiful Olivia Wilde.

I started using it during the winter time while my skin is even more sensitive, red and dry than normal. It wasn’t enough to use on it’s own so I wore MV Organics Rose Soothing and Protective Moisturizer on top and my skin felt comfortable and wore well under my makeup.
Now that the weather has warmed up I am able to wear it on it’s own. It really plumps up my skin and provides a smooth canvas for my makeup. I apply it on damp skin and it absorbs in quickly without leaving me looking greasy. I’ll usually dry my hair after applying to let it completely absorb before applying my makeup. It wears well under powder, creme and liquid foundations. And like it claims the scent is very uplifting and happy. Best of all it doesn’t irritate my skin or cause breakouts. It keeps my skin calm and balanced.
My previous favourite daytime moisturizer before I cleaned up my products was Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Moisturizer. I no longer miss it thanks to Lina Hanson!
Have I repurchased? Yes! The Detox Market recently had an amazing Victoria Day sale which I took full advantage of.
Have you used Lina Hanson? What are your thoughts? I’m curious to try the Body Serum next 🙂
Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
