Lina wanted to bring cherished and potent botanical ingredients from all over the world and make them available for us all.

Lina was generous enough to send me the Global Face Trio as well as the Global Treasures Eye Treatment Balm for me to test and review. I love all of the products I have tried from this brand, including the Global Body Serum and Global Face Serum.
My First Impression of the Product
My first impression was the scent. A nice, light, citrusy smell. The packaging is beautiful, as always. A dark glass jar houses the powder. This product comes with an eco-friendly bamboo spoon.
Scent and Texture
As I said above, the scent is light, a little spicy, and citrusy. The texture is that of a powder and feels like a smooth, fine clay.
This product is a 3-in-1, meaning it can perform three functions: cleanser, exfoliator, and mask. Add more water for daily use as a cleanser, and light exfoliation. Add less water for a heavier exfoliation. Use as a mask to brighten and clarify the skin.
I found the powder a bit awkward to use as a cleanser; it was hard not to make a mess. I am not a fan of using powder as a cleanser because I am used to a foaming action. I did try adding this powder to a liquid cleanser for added exfoliation, and I liked it better that way.
This powder works well as a mask, just as any other clay mask, you wet the powder and apply it to your skin. Let it dry and then wash off. Your skin is left feeling soft and clean.

How Does The Product Compare to Similar Products?
I love that this product is a 3-in-1. Multi-purpose products are great for saving counter space and for travel. The fact that this is a powder means that you can easily take it on a plane and it doesn't need preservatives in it like water-based products do.
The ingredients in the Global Face Trio are exotic and efficiant. Lina has done an excellent job at synergistically combining global elements into one useful product.
Lina Hanson's Global Face Trio is a treat for the skin. I love how it makes use of centuries old ingredients. My favorite way to use it is either adding it to my cleanser when I need some exfoliation, or as a mask.
This product gently exfoliates without irritation, lifting dead and dry skin cells away and leaving fresh skin behind. The mask tones and tightens my skin and helps get rid of blackheads.
I give this product a 4.5 out of 5 rating. I love mostly everything about this product, the only issue I have with it, is that it is awkward to use as a cleanser. I find myself spilling powder and not getting a good cleansing.
