During a recent yoga class, my teacher made a joke about my slippery skin while adjusting me.

“Is that baby oil?” he asked.

“No!” I said in between deep breaths. “It’s organic.”

What I really wanted to tell him was that I was testing out Lina Hanson’s new Global Baby Serum that day, and after a 7:30 a.m. application, it was keeping my sweaty yoga legs hydrated around 6:30 p.m.

But you don’t really get a lot of time in between poses to preach the goodness of organic beauty, which is why I have this post today.

{Lina Hanson sent me a sample of her new Global Baby Serum. It costs $35 for a 2-ounce dropper bottle.}

While I wouldn’t recommend using a body oil on a day you’re going to be wearing shorts to yoga class, I do recommend using a body oil every other day.

(I also don’t recommend wearing anything scented when you’re going to be in a crazy hot yoga studio — the mixing of the smells … no, no, no.)

The benefits of daily body oil use to your skin are immense, but basically, anyone who is lucky enough to graze your epidermis (wow, isn’t that a sexy phrase?) is going to notice how soft you are.

If you’re the type who has extremely sensitive, reactive skin, Lina Hanson’s Global Baby Serum could be the perfect solution to your skincare woes.

Lightweight and fragrance-free, Lina Hanson’s Global Baby Serum is packed with seven beautiful plant oils that deeply nourish without feeling greasy (again, unless you’re sweating profusely in 90+ degree yoga class — atypical for most days).

The dainty yellow color is likely from the rich color of jojoba and watermelon seed oils mixed with lighter-colored oils like safflower and camellia. It goes on clear, of course, and dries rapidly — this is an oil that’s easy to layer with creams if you wish.

Here’s the full ingredients list:

Citrullus vulgaris (watermelon) seed oil, organic carthamus tinctorius (safflower) seed oil, organic simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) seed oil, organic helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil, organic camellia oleifera (camellia) seed oil, prunus armeniaca (apricot) kernel oil, vitis vinifera (grape) seed oil, non-gmo tocopherol.

I’ve always been intrigued by watermelon seed oil’s properties; Lina included this wonder oil in Global Baby Serum for its beneficial fatty acids that can help reduce mama’s (or my …) stretch marks as well as deliver a fast-absorbing hydrating oil to a finicky baby.

While I’m not expecting surprises in my tummy anytime soon, I’ll keep using Lina Hanson’s Global Baby Serum on my inner thighs (yeap, stretch marks are for real) and on those days when I want my natural perfumes to take center stage and not compete with my daily body oil’s scent.

I also think Lina Hanson’s Global Baby Serum is a lovely oil for those beauty junkies out there who test a ton of products (you ladies and gents know who you are!) and need a “neutral” oil break in between product testing.

I’ve used this on my face and neck in between testing cycles, and it’s refreshing to have something simple yet effective to go back to every few weeks.

For that, this is a repurchase for me. Think of this as your organic baby oil, friends.

  • Great post :) Really sounds like a lovely product x

    I’ve seen so many glowing reviews for this product lately! Have you been using it long enough to tell yet whether it really does fade stretch marks? I could definitely go for that.

    • Just about three weeks. I have some growth stretch marks on my inner thighs, and it’s a slow fading process. I can’t chalk it all up to this for helping, as I use body oil every day (and have been for several years). I think hydration is key here! I’m gifting my sample to my pregnant co-worker to get more feedback on it! I’ll be purchasing my own full-size jar to use in between product testing — that’s the best use case for me! It’s so gentle and fragrance-free … like to give my skin a break!

  • Glowing post! Love how you put this “surprise in my tummy” and the reaction of your yoga teacher ;-) You definitely sold me : testing out lots of products do sometimes take a toll on the skin.

    • Ha, yes! No surprises in this tummy. Just burritos. :) Let me know if you try it / like it!

  • Watermelon seed oil! :o This sounds awesome, Kim — it’s going right onto my list of things to check out. :)

    Tea tree oil is just amazing.. Adding 1/2 teaspoon of essential oil to your laundry for towels and other fabric prone to getting moldy.
