One of my favorite things about summer is catching the ice cream truck.

I’m typically a certified chocoholic, but in the hot summertime, I love to indulge in a little orange and vanilla goodness.

In case I don’t catch the truck when it rolls through my ‘hood (because, ya know, I’ll be at work), I’ll get my summer indulgence via Lina Hanson’s new Global Body Serum, which smells just like a Creamsicle!

{I received a sample of Lina Hanson’s Global Body Serum for review. The full size retails for $63 for a 3.4-ounce black glass pump jar. }

Launching today (World Environment Day!), Lina Hanson Global Body Serum combines 10 of the world’s most beautiful oils into a sleek black pump jar that begs you to slather it from head to toe after every morning shower.

Here’s the ingredients list:

Rice bran oil, apricot kernal oil, argan nut oil, yuzu oil, vanilla oil, camellia seed oil, Brazil nut oil, pumpkin seed oil, pink grapefruit oil, avocado oil

To celebrate World Environment Day, Lina Hanson is donating 15 percent of the proceeds of Global Body Serum (purchased from June 15 to August 15) to the International Rescue Committee, an organization that responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises and helps people to survive and rebuild their lives.

Staying true to her global view of beauty, Lina chose these ingredients not only for their skin benefits, but also for their use in beauty rituals around the world. Behold:

Rice Bran Oil

Used in Japanese culture for centuries. Rice bran oil is said to reverse the effect of aging by slowing the formulation of wrinkles.

Apricot Kernel Oil

The Hunza people of Northern Pakistan use apricot kernel oil, rich in vitamin E, to soften the skin and preserve elasticity and retain suppleness.

Argan Oil

This rare oil, which comes from the fruits of the Argania Spinosa tree in Morocco, protects against premature aging, hydrates the skin and neutralizes free radicals.

Yuzu Oil

Yuzu originated in China and Tibet and has been cultivated in Japan for many years and helps chapped, irritated skin.

Vanilla Oil

Vanilla oil, made from vanilla beans cultivated in Madagascar, is a rich source of antioxidants, which helps neutralize free radicals.

Camellia Seed Oil

Japanese camellia seed oil moisturizes, brightens the skin and helps prevent wrinkles.

Brazil Nut Oil

Brazil nut oil, which hails from the Amazon Rainforest of Peru, is rich in alpha and oleic acids to maintain smooth, youthful skin.

Pumpkin Seed Oil

Native to Austria, pumpkin seed oil possesses high levels of antioxidants and can decrease the effects of rosacea.

Pink Grapefruit Oil

Grown in the USA, pink grapefruit oil tones and detoxifies congested skin.

Avocado Oil

Rich in vitamins A, B, D and E, avocado oil soothes skin irritated by dryness, eczema and other skin conditions.

This lovely combination of ingredients slicks on easily and is well-absorbed by the skin. A little goes a long way (I limit myself to about two pumps per leg) if you want to get maximum use out of this special body oil!

I’m completely taken by the yummy orange-vanilla smell (which, actually, is pink grapefruit and vanilla!). I reserve this oil for daytime use, though I think it would be perfectly appropriate for summer evenings. I like that it doesn’t leave my legs greasy (as some thicker body oils do), and I appreciate Lina’s vision in creating her line.

Consider me a Lina Hanson Global Beauty fan all the way from the exotic plains of middle America.
