The Lina Hanson Global Serums are easy and effective for all skin types, and really do offer a more zen way to care for our skin (Meaning we don’t have to remember 1900 steps before we leave the house in the morning)- and they smell amazing! Lina has selected the best of the best multipurpose beautifying and anti aging ingredients from all around the world and used them in both Global serums, so you really are getting the best of this world.

Global Face Serum

lina-hanson-global-face-serum-v1A smooth, deliciously scented, golden colored oil, the Global Face Serum instantly calms and hydrates the complexion; I loved using it both morning and night! It was a perfect base/primer for my makeup in the morning and smoothed any little dry patches instantly- and with continued use it diminished them almost completely! I noticed my fine lines were smoothed and my skin was hydrated and so soft. Although it is an oil, oily or combination skin can absolutely love and benefit from this oil; it absorbs instantly- and DOES NOT leave an oily finish. The smell is so calming and beautiful- I really adored it.

Ingredients: Andansonia digitata (Baobab) Seed Oil, Argania Spinosa (Argan) Nut Oil*, Sclerocarya birrea (Marula) Kernel Oil*, Camellia oleifera (Camellia) Seed Oil*, Cucurbita maxima (Pumpkin) Seed Oil*, Bertholletia excelsa (Brazil) Nut Oil, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Citrus reticulata (Mandarin) Oil*, Citrus aurantium amara, (Neroli) Oil, Boswellia carteri (Frankincense) Oil*, Cymbopogen martinii (Palmarosa) Oil*, Cananga Odorata (Ylang Ylang) Oil*. *Organic Ingredient

Global Body Serum

body_serum2

A sweet scented, super luxurious body oil that is perfect for everyday, to keep skin hydrated, smooth and glowing. Long story short- when I began using the body serum the skin on my body looked mangy- and just yuck, after only one use my skin was smooth, glowing and happy!

Eminence Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant

strawberrydermafoliantEverything I review on my site I enjoy very much, but some things that I try, I cannot live without! The Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant by Eminence Organic Skincare is one of those cannot live without products! It is a rice based powder for all skin types that gently exfoliates the skin to reveal a smooth, radiantly clear complexion.

image(11)
It is a dry powder that must be activated with water. You can mix it with your cleanser, mask or just with water alone! I personally use mine in all the above ways, and find them equally as effective! The Eminence Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant literally leaves my skin so soft and refined that my skin feels completely reborn after using it. It is so gentle that you can use it 7 days a week, although I do not recommend such frequent exfoliation (read my exfoliation article)!

photo(5)
I live a busy life (as we all do) and sometimes find it hard to fit in all my skincare steps. So I often will mix my mask with the Dermafoliant and get a 2 in 1! Just add equal parts mask and Dermafoliant on damp hands and massage on damp face and leave on for 15-20 minutes! Rinse and notice visibly softer, refined skin.

photo(6)

The Eminence Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant is loaded full of amazing skin nourishing ingredients! Read Below, I could not describe them better myself!

image(10)

When you mix the powder just with water, you can really smell the Strawberry Rhubarb and it is like rubbing pie powder on your face! YUM! I absolutely love it. You use such a small amount of the powder (about a quarter size) per use, so it lasts such along time!!! This Dermafoliant is a must!!! There is nothing like it.

*Please note

DO NOT KEEP IT IN THE SHOWER, THE POWDER MUST REMAIN DRY!

AVOID EYE AREA, THE FINE RICE POWDER WILL IRRITATE THE EYES IF IT GETS INSIDE!

I am in love with… Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm

burts-bees

I go through makeup fazes where I love to wear certain things. Sometimes I love bold eyes, and Ill wear every crazy color, other times a simple coat of mascara does me good. Same thing with my lips, I will sometimes go for all the bright bold colors, and other times, I will want close to nothing on them. I have been going through a more long term naked lippy faze, and have preferred lip balm, gloss or lipstick with more muted color. One day I picked up one of the Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balms and the next day… I owned them all.

photo(4)

They are the perfect hint of color to complete any look, and they are so creamy and moisturizing and smell delicious! With lip loving nourishing oils and natural waxes such as coconut oil, olive oil, shea butter and jasmine wax; your lips will love you long time for using these amazing balms!

image(8)

The swatch picture below does not do these balms ANY justice, as they are on pasty white skin in terrible lighting. But to give you an idea on how sheer and beautiful they are, I attempted…

From the bottom up- Honeysuckle (Peachy Coral), Caramel Daisy (Nude), Petunia (Soft Pink), Red Dahlia (Brown Red), Hibiscus (Peachy Red), Pink Blossom (Pink) , Sweet Violet (Plum Pink), Rose (Red), Blush (Light Nude Pink), Tiger Lily (Nude Peach Coral).

I strongly recommend going out and trying one of these lovely Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balms, I doubt that you will be disappointed!

I absolutely loved the feeling of the Wellness System on my Scalp! It left my scalp so refreshed, purified and soothed. The Chinese Botanicals, peppermint oil, menthol and Green Tea really simulated circulation; so much so that I could feel a slight tingle for hours after washing. I noticed after 2 weeks of use, that my flaky scalp went away and my hair increased in bounce and shine! The Shampoo and Conditioner have a very fresh, herbal scent and are great for dry itchy scalp, hair loss, dull hair and oily scalp.

Éminence Strawberry Rhubarb Hyaloronic Serum

eminencelogo

Let me begin this post by saying this… If Eminence were a land, I would live there; If Eminence were a man, we would be in love; If Eminence were a food, it would be scrump-diddly-umptious, and I could keep going. To keep it simple, I am obsessed with Eminence Organic Skincare. I have recently fallen in love with the line after using several products myself and seeing, feeling, smelling beautiful results!

One of my top favorite products in the line is the Strawberry Rhubarb Hyaloronic Serum. First of all the name was enough for me! Strawberry? Yes Please! Rhubarb? You bet! Vegan friendly Hyaloronic Acid? HAND IT OVERRR!!!!
emienencestrawbThis serum is designed for all skin types but especially dehydrated and depleted. It smells like decadent, delicious dessert and it worked wonders for the overall health of my skin. The serum is an entire experience, it smells beautiful, feels beautiful and truly repaired my skin to make it equally as beautiful. I noticed instant hydration, fine lines were diminished, my skin was baby soft with overall radiance and smoothness. I am thoroughly impressed and obsessed with the results this serum gave me.
image(2)

The key ingredients making this product amazing?

*Vegan Hyaloronic Acid from the marshmallow plant, giving ultimate hydration and replenishment to the skin for an overall youthful glow and smoothness.

*Strawberry which is an astringent, helps to tighten the pores and brighten. It also contains salicylic acid, so great to control breakouts and keep the skin clear!

*Honey for calming, moisturizing and soothing

*Rhubarb rich in vitamin c for brightening and radiance

*And Eminence Biocomplex, found in many of their products. It is a concoction of many different age defying ingredients including antioxidants, vitamins, Coenzyme Q10, and Alpha Lipoic Acid.

Another great point about using any Eminence Organic Skincare products is how little you need! I only use 3/4 to a pea size of serum each use!  It glides so easily and covers every inch of my facial skin and even a bit down the neck. Great value!
serumrhub
It comes in a elegant 30ml Glass bottle with a dropper.

This serum is one of my absolute staple products. I love it. It can work for any age, skin type or concern, its that multipurpose. Plus your face will smell good enough to eat!!!

Jurlique Herbal Recovery Neck Serum

jurliqe logo

Many women seem to neglect and overlook the importance of detail in their beauty care routine. Most of us realize that we must have a clean and moisturized face for optimal facial beauty, but what about our neck and decollete…? One of the first places you can detect a woman’s skin health and age is in her face and neck; so why do we wait until we have creppyness, dryness, age spots and lack of firmness in our neck area, to begin to do something about it? Prevention-Is-Key.  I asked myself this question, and despite still being in my 20’s with little to none of the above concerns, when given the opportunity to be proactive and try something, I thought, what the heck! I am really glad I did!

Jurlique Herbal Recovery Neck Serum is a beautiful anti-aging, hydrating neck serum packed with LOADS of skin repairing, nurturing ingredients. So even if you are not in dire need of anti aging on the neck area (yet), you are giving your neck and decollete a fighting chance to maintain its youthful firmness for as long as possible! If you already have major neck and decollete concerns, this product is going to help you tremendously with the repair of these concerns, and you will see a difference! The reason I can strongly say this? A  fellow, more mature skin specialist and I were both given one to try, she does have the above mentioned neck/decollete concerns, and she gave a rave review (not surprising with the quality of ingredients).

Jurlique Neck

As I said before, this serum is packed full of great skin loving ingredients and antioxidants. Avocado, Jojoba and Evening Primrose oil for smoothing and nourishing, Gingko Biloba and Vitamin C for amazing antioxidant and skin brightening/firming, Soybean Protein for firming, Carrot Seed extract- rich in Natural Vitamin A for anti wrinkle and firmness, Licorice Root Extract for pigmentation lightening! WOW ME LIKEY that! The ingredients found in Jurlique products are all Biodynamic, Organic and Natural, which makes them even more potent and effective.

LIQUIDneckserum

With my use of the serum, I noticed an incredible boost of softness and hydration. I typically have little patches of eczema, especially in the winter months, under my chin and on my neck. I was pleasantly surprised that within a week of using the serum, my little dry patches were smooth and undetectable. I did notice that my little natural gobble chin was also less gobbly, which was a great surprise. I absolutely adored the lightweight texture and how quickly the serum absorbed, as I do not particularly enjoy the feeling of something on my neck. The scent of the product is quite different, herbal and licorice. If you do not like these types of scents, do not fret, it dissipates withing 15 minutes.
My co Skin specialist, noticed an amazing improvement in the texture, hydration and firmness of her neck area/ decollete area. In a few words she said “It does the trick!”

So for any of you looking for a preventative measure to maintain the youth of your neck or decollete, or those of you that already have major concerns, the Jurlique Herbal Recovery Neck Serum is for you.

Weleda Citrus Refreshing Body Oil

imagewele

I will begin by saying, that if you want to use an extremely clean, earth happy brand, Weleda is it!
The ingredients are from biodynamic and organic farms and they take the utmost care to ensure the purity and efficacy of their products.
weleding

The skin on my body has been neglected lately, due to a busy life and a wee bit of laziness, which is not good; especially during the Canadian winter, when moisturizing should be a regular part of anyone’s regimen.
My skin was red, itchy and chapped and when discomfort finally woke me up a couple of evenings ago, I decided I should take my own advice and pamper my skin.

weledaback
I am extremely happy with the relief that the Weleda Citrus Refreshing Body oil gave me. The oil contains Sweet Almond oil which is rich in fatty acids, and therefore extremely beneficial and nourishing for the skin. It also contains Lemon oil and other Citrus essential oils which are so refreshing and invigorating on the skin.

weledabot
After my shower, while my skin still had droplets of water upon it, I used approximately 4-5 tsp of the oil all over. I immediately felt a relief to my dry, chapped skin. The oil was smooth and easy to apply. I loved the fact that the oil was not too ‘oily’. I find other oils so greasy and slippery that they are displeasing to use, and they do not absorb properly, leaving you to either wait long periods of time before dressing, or get oil stains on your clothes, neither of which I enjoy. The Weleda Citrus Refreshing body oil was much different, it glided easily and absorbed relatively fast, leaving my skin dewy, not greasy! The scent was just beautiful and left me feeling smiley

oilhand

I would recommend any of the Weleda body oils, as I have tried many and loved them all. This particular formula is light and refreshing. If you have very dry skin or aging skin concerns, there may be others that would suit you better.Something I would like to point out, is not to over use the product, you should not have a thick layer of the oil all over, it should be very sheer.

With regular use of body oils you will increase skin hydration and help with skin elasticity. It can help with scars and stretch marks, and will give your skin a beautiful glow!

Thayer’s Lemon Witch Hazel

Henry Thayer

I love all of Thayer’s Witch Hazel formulations, but my top two favorites are the Rose and Lemon Witch Hazel.  I have reviewed the Rose Witch Hazel previous, so please take a read! Today I will talk about Thayer’s Lemon Witch Hazel, which was equally as delightful to use.
Witch Hazel blended with Aloe Vera, Lemongrass, Blackberry, Grapefruit among other ingredients left my skin incredibly fresh and clean. What I love about all the Thayer’s Witch Hazel formulations is that they are not over drying whatsoever. The Lemon formulation is definitely purifying, and in my opinion better for normal/combo/oily skin, with that being said, I consider all skins to be in constant change, with seasons, life, hormones, climate etc. So if your skin is feeling oily, blemished or dull, this formulation can work wonders for you. The natural Lemon scent is amazing, and really wakes up the senses.

lemon witch

After only one week of use, I noticed that my pores were tightened,  my acne scars were faded and my blackheads were reduced. I also used it on my legs after waxing for several days and I did not get the usual redness, irritation or ingrown hairs! Overall I am very happy with the results, and this is for sure a staple in my regimen along with the Rose toner for dryer days.

Ingredients:
Thayers Proprietary Witch Hazel, Lemongrass, Orange Peel, Blackberry, Chamomile, Nettle and Grapefruit extracts in a purified water base, natural grain alcohol as a preservative (10%) and an Emulsified All-Natural Fresh Lemon Fragrance.

Tallulah Jane Natural Fragrances

tallulahj

As a fragrance specialist, addict and absolute lover of anything that smells good; the knowledge that most all of my large fragrance collection contained bad for me ingredients, was complete sadness. I was recently given the opportunity to try multiple brands of Natural and Organic fragrances, Tallulah Jane being one of them, and I am very glad of that!

decription

I can say that with Tallulah Jane Fragrances, I hardly miss my toxic collection. All of the fragrances are 100% natural; organic and wild crafted oils mixed in organic grape or jojoba alcohol. They are all hand poured and every batch is a little bit different making the fragrances amazingly unique. That is the first thing I can tell you, these fragrances are so unique. I have never smelled another fragrance like any of these 8 fragrances. You will be sure to find an individual and signature scent to be remembered in this collection!

ingredients

Let us begin the individual fragrance reviews. The picture directly below gives a beautiful description of the fragrances, I will attempt to do somewhat the same in my own words. The descriptions were very handy because the notes are so wonderfully blended that it leaves you thinking “mmmmm what is that?!”

fragrances

Tallulah-

Tallulah is very beautiful. It smells very fresh but not in a sharp soapy or citrus way. The scent melts into the skin gently, with soft floral and fresh earth.
The notes indicated are Jasmine, Tuberose and Frankincense.

Gotham-

Gotham is an extremely sexy scent. It smells so earthy and spicy but in a very feminine way. It makes me feel like a pretty hippie or gypsy.
The notes indicated are Rose, Patchouli and Spice.

333-

333 is so soothing and soft. It smells sweet, citrus fresh, and just so calming. This is number 3 in my top 3 favorites. It would be a wonderful day/office fragrance because it is light and after day/office fragrance because it is calming.
The notes indicated are 3 types of Chamomile, 3 types of Lavender, 3 types of citrus.

Misae-

Misae is literally a burst of fresh, sweet citrus. It is a total wake me up fragrance without being overwhelming, although the citrus notes are evident. It also has an underlying light floral with green notes. This is for anyone who loves fresh, clean, citrus scents.
The notes indicated are White/ Green floral, Blonde Woods and Grasses.

Leotie-

Love, Love, Love Leotie! Leotie is an absolutely gorgeous fragrance, and embodies everything feminine. It is so romantic, a bouquet of flowers, that is clean, soft and powdery with a hint of sweet. I love this fragrance so much and is number 2 in my top 3. Perfect for every woman but especially a girly girl who loves everything nice!
The notes indicated are Wild Flowers, Sweet woods and Tonka.

Halona-

Halona is a wonderfully clean and fresh citrus rush. Every time I wear it I feel really happy and alive. It’s without a doubt the tangiest citrus in the line. It does subdue a tad leaving an almost soft spice. This for me is a hot day fragrance, or for anyone who wishes to put a bit of sunshine into their day!
The notes indicated are Lime, Ginger, Eastern Tea and Spices.

Aiyana-

Oh Aiyana, you delight me. Aiyana is the most alluring fragrance. Overwhelmingly sexy, but still very beautiful. I smell spicy, soft sweet and a hint of floral, all blended together magically to create an exceptionally beautiful fragrance. Aiyana is my number 1 favorite out of my top 3. It smelled great on me and was a blend of spicy, sweet and floral, all which I adore.
The notes indicated are Rose, Citrus and Vanilla.

Rayen-

Rayen is earthy fresh. It is a perfect unisex fragrance or for the woman who hates to smell overly feminine. It has a soft citrus and floral, but in the end smells almost powdery. I actually really love this one, as it is so different. Rayen reminds me of the outdoors, taking a hike or sitting by the river.
The notes indicated are Mandarin and other Citrus, Floral, White Champa Leaf and Amber.

There is a final fragrance, Yiska, which is specifically designed for men, but I did not personally try it, you can read the brief description of it in the picture above.

Finally, as stated before I am so glad to have had the opportunity to try Tallulah Jane Fragrances as they are unlike any fragrances I have ever smelled. They are uniquely beautiful and artfully blended, and last superbly on the skin. Thank you Eleanor for sending me the samples! I am very happy to be selling them as well
