Lina Hanson Global Body Serum review

I don't have particularly dry skin and my body care regime is pretty lax. But something about summer makes me want to get a body oil. They just make me feel like I am indulging in a spa ritual.

I have been waiting for Lina Hanson Global Body Serum to reach UK for a little while (well ever since the announcement that there was a body oil in the works). I don't normally buy expensive body products, but I think that it is OK, once in a while, to spend as much on my body as I do on my face (I want to look good in my shorts as long as possible).

I tend to moisturise mainly my legs and arms once or twice a week. I will also use a body oil and aloe vera mix after spending a day in the sun, or if I went swimming.

I really like the texture of this serum, it feels heavy enough to spread easily, yet it sinks in well and doesn't leave a greasy feeling behind.

I only need 2-3 pumps per leg and about 1-2 pumps per arm,  so 100ml would last a fairly long time. Packaging is almost identical to the face serum, it is just a bigger bottle.

Now to the scent, I normally associate vanilla with teenagers (do not ask me why, I just do) this however is more of a "grownup vanilla". It is fairly sweet, but it isn't very strong and that makes it more subtle, I think it is more playful than sexy. It reminds me a little of Tsi-la Flori D'arancio perfume.

The blend of oils in this serum is pretty impressive, with moisturising and antioxidant benefits. I also find it to be a really good oil for the neck and bust area.

Scents last differently on people, but I find that this one doesn't linger on me (which I kind of prefer, I like to have a boost of fragrance while I am using a product, but I don't necessarily want to be smelling myself all day).

Overall I think this oil is a wonderful, slightly decadent summer treat


  1. I'm glad this has made it's way over the pond so you could try it! In the beginning I found that the scent lasted all day, but recently, it seems to fade more quickly. Or maybe I've just stopped noticing it on myself...it could be that :)

    1. So am I! Honestly not that bothered about the scent not lingering, gives me an option to wear perfume ;)
