Founded by Jenna Levine, the beauty brand just launched a sensitive skin capsule collection for babies and mothers. The clean, sustainable line is gentle enough for children but luxurious enough for adults. In fact, each product is formulated for pregnancy and post-partum with a focus on stretch marks, chapped nipples, hormonal acne, and dryness. The three new products include Cleanse, a cleanser for face, body, and baby hair ($58); Nurture, a face and body balm ($62); and Replenish, an oil for face, body, and hair ($56).
LINNÉ Refresh Mineral Mist
“This multi-tasking toner is excellent for combination and oily skin. It helps minimize pores, minimize bacteria infections, and protect overall skin health.” – Joomee Song
Linné Soak Limited Edition Bath Salts
A rose-petal bath is romantic, sure, but indie brand Linné's salts with hibiscus flowers take it up a notch by calming sore muscles (and spiraling minds) whenever you're exhausted from a workout or too much sitting.
EATING WELL- SCENTS OF WELLNESS - JAN 2022
The botanical skincare brand recently launched its first eye product: the Revive eye serum, which helps with depuffing, brightening, and anti-aging. Created in small batches and formulated from plant and mineral sources, LINNÉ's products are formulated using unrefined plant extracts and cold-pressed seed, nut and fruit oils.
Available for $80 at linnebotanicals.com
Known for small-bath botanical skin-care products, Linné sources ingredients globally to nourish and protect, no matter the skin concern. Their face oil contains antioxidant and omega-packed rosehip seed, sea buckthorn berry, and sacha inchi seed oil that helps revitalize and repair scarred or dry skin. Even their choice of clear packaging is a physical representation of their goal to be a transparent brand. Plus, clear glass is accepted by recycling plants more than any other color. Just be sure to keep products away from heat and direct sunlight to keep fresh and active.
The time period jade rollers were invented is unclear, but it's widely accepted that the history of this beauty tool traces far back in Ancient Chinese history. Popular today (you've probably seen these on Tik Tok), jade rollers help gently massage skin and reduce puffiness. PS: Leaving this in the fridge is the gift that keeps on giving as the cool sensation feels amazing on skin.
It's a healing salve. It's makeup remover. It's a hair product. Actually, it's all the above, somehow. Linne Botanicals' balm melts into your skin like butter, working to maintain healthy, balanced skin. It delivers collagen-stimulating antioxidants while soothing irritation and correcting uneven texture.
I was recently introduced to this natural skincare line, which features a range of products formulated from plant and mineral sources, and was instantly hooked. While I loved the gentle cleanser and rich face oil I tried, it was LINNÉ's newest product, the REVIVE eye emulsion, that had me immediately hitting add to cart. You can instantly feel the cooling, hydrating effects and see the brightening results, but it was how this product depuffed my under eye bags (always a problem for me, but especially during this time of year when I'm trying juggle end of year projects at work, extra social commitments, and new episodes of the Great British Bake Off: Holiday Editon) the next day that had me hooked.

"The other brand I alternate with is Linnè, which has a Repairing Oil
or a Balancing Oil
. I love her products. She’s a smaller, lesser-known brand, but her stuff is incredible.
Honest has a great face mask; it’s that berry smoothing one
. I don’t do a ton of face masks, but if I do, I think I prefer scrubs, and Linné makes a good face scrub
Linné has this avocado body balm
that’s really great, especially in the winter. It’s really moisturizing."
"I’ve tried [thousands] of eye creams," one reviewer wrote, but with REVIVE Eye Emulsion, they can actually "see a difference." This serum seemingly does it all: de-puff, brighten, tighten, lift, hydrate, and protect. Oh, and it also contains special ingredients that interact with the nervous system, too, which elicit "feel-good chemicals" in order to boost your mood and therefore your skin health.

LINNÉ Refresh Face Mist
"Then I spritz on the Refresh Face Mist by Linne. It’s a really nice mineral spritz for your face."
Jenna Levine, Linné Botanicals
"The significance of community, both in meaning and value, has evolved tremendously in the last year. Even as I transitioned from a social New Yorker to a faraway Vermonter, and then ultimately a nesting mother in Charleston, I have not felt isolated in the slightest. I owe that much in part to the growing connections we've established through social media and aligned press. Despite being physically disconnected, we've learned how to strengthen our sense of community. We've done this by being resolute in our mission and message while being increasingly inclusive and expansive in our outreach."
RISE AND REST LINNÉ
"Linné is a brand that curates all-natural botanicals, and uses as few ingredients as possible. This particular set promotes calm and awakens the senses. To get her going in the morning, Rise is made up of orange essence, black spruce, and black pepper. And to help her feel tranquil, Rest is made up of petit grain sur fleurs, blue chamomile, and frankincense."
"Si tu mamá se apunta a las últimas tendencias de belleza y aún no tiene un rodillo facial, ¡este es el momento!

LINNÉ NOURISH LIP BALM
"I’m a big fan of the small-batch freshness and efficacy of LINNÉ’s botanical skin care line, so I had high expectations for their lip balm. Spoiler: The NOURISH Lip Balm delivers.
The blend of mango butter, cocoa butter, pumpkin seed, jojoba oil, castor oil, beeswax, and calendula extract is densely nutritive and buttery soft.
The balm glides on smoothly but stays in place, which means my lips get that protective barrier they need against moisture loss.
I love the untinted version, but they also have tinted balms in a dusty nude and a rich berry. Pro tip: Levine says the balms can be used on the cheeks for a natural flush. The brand plans on rolling out additional tints soon.
LINNÉ prides themselves on being a champion of environmental stewardship. According to Levine, they use a portion of profits from this lip balm to support wilderness preservation organizations, like the Wilderness Society
EXFOLIATES AND BRIGHTENS DULL SKIN
"At least once a week, I treat myself to a massage with this Linné face mask. This antimicrobial scrub is incredibly brightening and instantly livens up dull skin that needs some love after months in the winter chill and indoor heating. It exfoliates dead skin cells to reveal smooth and radiant skin. The addition of lemon and orange extracts is refreshing and tingling, as it encourages cellular turnover to keep skin glowing for days afterward."
PURIFIES AND DETOXIFIES SKIN
"Eucalyptus oil is able to purify the skin without stripping the skin of its natural barrier, thus striking the perfect balance between a purifying and deep clean."
BEST MULTI-PURPOSE FACE WASH: LINNÉ PURIFY FACE WASH AND MASK
"Get two products for the price of one with this multi-purpose face wash and a mask. Linné Botanicals is a well-established clean skincare brand, which means that their formulas contain organic, wild-harvested, and eco-certified ingredients. The purifying combination of French green clay and bentonite clay helps draw impurities from the skin while also providing vital minerals. Each bottle also comes with a sea sponge, which can be used to physically exfoliate the surface of the skin. Safe to use both morning and night, as well as once a week as a clay mask if you feel like your skin could use a detox."
RENEW FACE SERUM
"This small-batch skincare line founded by mom of one Jenna Levine is designed to protect, enhance, improve, and rejuvenate skin with gentle formulas made of organic plant ingredients. We love that the products are free of synthetics, carcinogens, environmental toxins, and fillers."

"LINNÉ is a botanical skin care line that safely promotes healthy, radiant skin. I love that their products are free of synthetics, carcinogens, environmental toxins, and fillers.The brand is all about transparency. Both their ingredients and the purpose of those ingredients are out there for everyone to see.LINNÉ BALANCE Face Oil is made with seed and essential oils chosen for their ability to manage oil production, clear pores, encourage cellular regeneration, and reduce inflammation.The oil in my bottle is light in both color and texture, and it absorbs quickly and easily. It has a clean, green, herbal aroma that I find surprisingly appealing — it gives you the feeling that this product is incredibly potent, vibrant, and fresh.Rub in just a little product, and your skin feels instantly nourished.
LINNÉ REPAIR oil is vivid orange, and I momentarily panicked the first time when it turned my skin the same color. But, as I massaged it in, something magical happened: The orange disappeared completely, leaving my skin glowing. It’s a light oil that absorbs easily, yet it leaves me hydrated all day. It has an almost dry oil effect — dewy, but not at all greasy.
LINNÉ’s oils are organic, wild harvested, and unrefined. Their level of care comes across in the fragrance: It’s a woodsy, spicy scent that makes me feel like I’m doing something good for my skin. And — with the blend of powerhouse ingredients chosen for their ability to encourage skin cell regeneration, minimize wrinkles, restore moisture, and improve complexion — that’s exactly what I’m doing."
WHAT IS GINGER OIL?
"Before we examine the potential benefits of ginger oil (hint: there are several), you might be wondering what this stuff actually is. Simply put, ginger oil is an essential oil extracted from the rhizome (i.e., edible portion) of the ginger plant. Per Jenna Levine, the botanist and herbalist behind LINNÉ Botanicals
, ginger oil can be made with a few different methods: by “macerating ginger root in oil, via distillation to produce an essential oil or with CO2 extraction.” The first technique—distillation—can be done at home, but Levine recommends CO2 extracts instead because they boast a richer and more complex aroma that she describes as “more true to that of the freshly harvested root.” In other words, if you’re curious about ginger oil feel free to DIY—just keep in mind that a store-bought CO2 extract will probably pack more of a punch."

"For those who want their sanitizer to smell just as good as their favorite fragrance, all-natural botanical skincare line Linné introduced its Sanitizer, enriched with an aromatic blend of essential oils like organic eucalyptus, tea tree, cedarwood, and more to boost your mood while you sanitize. Formulated with high-grade ethyl alcohol and moisturizing glycerin, Linné's option is free of methanol, triclosan, and synthetics."
"With anything, consistency is key. Think of Linné Botanicals’ Purify Face Wash as your daily dose of gentle detoxification. Ingredients such as French green clay, jojoba oil and dead sea salt neutralize free radicals. Additionally, these ingredients even out skin tone and boost circulation. Made in small batches from native, wild-harvested organic plants, you can count on each wash to be nourishing on the highest level."
"Meet the best gift you could ever give a tea lover: LINNÉ’s limited-edition collaboration with Welly Bottle for a skin tea set that will warm their heart (quite literally)."
"If you’re anything like us, you are on a constant hunt to elevate our “Self-Care Sunday.” Besides loading up some of the hottest beauty products on our January launch list, consider trying LINNÉ Botanicals’ Skin Tea ($26) that features a proprietary herbal blend of 13 organically grown flowers, leaves, seeds, and fruits to keep your skin healthy and glowing."
"Palmarosa is an essential oil Levine recommends for a whole host of benefits. While it's known to be used for many purposes, such as supporting deep sleep and balancing one's mood, you may be most interested in its 'calming and uplifting effects,' which "serve as a tonic for the heart and mind," she says. To use it, Levine says you can apply it topically in the proper dilution or diffuse it.
Like peppermint, coriander is an invigorating scent that Levine recommends if you're in need of a mood boost. According to the founder, it's said to induce mental clarity and can help provide a peaceful mindset by clearing away 'any feelings of doubt, weariness, and irritability.' Coriander essential oil can be diluted through a carrier oil and applied topically or diffused.
According to Levine, black spruce is often used in meditative rituals to help ground and 'stimulates an effect of being refreshed and motivated.' If you're feeling especially lethargic, you can apply this topically with a carrier oil, or use it in a diffuser as a pick-me-up with a refreshing, woody scent."

"It's also super rich in omega 3, 6, and 9 fatty acids, making it profoundly nourishing on a cellular level," says Jenna Levine, the founder of Linné, who is certified in California native plant botany and herbal medicine.

"This lip balm is a feel-good purchase in more ways than one. That's because LINNÉ Botanicals donates profits from the sale of their lip balms to wilderness preservation organizations, including The Wilderness Society.

"An aromatherapeutic exfoliating scrub that decongests your skin and nose. Linne's Activate Body Wash feels so luxurious and therapeutic. From the granular texture that softens your skin to the incredible scent of eucalyptus (you already know!) that fills your senses and decongests your nose, the minute you open up this bottle of body wash you will instantly feel *~serenity~*."
WHAT IS YOUR SKINCARE ROUTINE? (PRODUCTS, FACIALS, ETC)
"I start my day by splashing my face with cool water. After patting dry, I generously mist myself with our REFRESH mineral essence and then follow with a quick facial massage using our RENEW serum and BALANCE face oil to provide the perfect slip. I also like to roll-on our RISE functional fragrance on my brow, neck and inner wrists. The squalane based essential oil blend contains ingredients that directly benefit the skin and moreover the aromatherapeutic qualities help release anxiety, promote hormonal equilibrium in the body and support bodily systems to operate at a higher level of efficiency, all of which indirectly support healthy skin.
In the evening I wash my face with PURIFY face wash. It’s a wonderful creamy clay cleanser that doubles as a mask, so once a week or as needed, I use it as such to achieve an even deeper cleansing. I also use our SCRUB face mask once or twice a week to gently shed dead skin. Following cleansing and masking I mist with REFRESH and follow with RENEW and REPAIR face oil. I try to do a longer massage at this point to further tone facial tissue, iron out creases, and increase product penetration (you can find our massage tutorials on IG in story archives and IGTV). Prior to bed I apply SMOOTH body balm to hands and feet, and apply our REST functional fragrance to temples, wrists, the underside of my nose and along my back to ease sore muscles and promote better sleep and deeper relaxation. I have to say, REST really made a noticeable difference for me in these final stages of pregnancy where sleeping has previously been challenging."
"Also in the category of 'fragrances that do more', is this chic Rise & Rest from Linné to help start and close the day on a good note. Rise is fresh and invigorating – like a blend of freshly cut grass and freshly squeezed orange juice, while Rest is as instantly calming as a mug of chamomile tea." - Sara Spruch-Feiner
"In 2021, expect even more products for your hands formulated with the ingredients usually reserved for your face: Pai Skincare just released a hand 'serum,' YesTo is launching a hand cream infused with avocado oil and hyaluronic acid, and Linné Botanicals
"Apply this functional aromatherapeutic duo at night and in the morning, to rest and rise."
LINNÉ RISE & REST
"This 'functional fragrance
' aromatherapeutic duo uses essential oils to encourage the body to follow its natural rhythm. The Rise fragrance invigorates the senses and promotes calm and clarity, while the Rest fragrance encourages better sleep through the use of blue chamomile, lavender, ylang ylang, and frankincense essential oils. Apply them in the morning and night with the rollerball application for easy aromatherapy on the go."

"Thank Linne Botanicals for starting my days off so fresh."
"Models appeared to have a glow that was radiating from the inside out as they walked down the runway. This was achieved using a suite of products from the REFRESH, RENEW, REPAIR, BALANCE and SMOOTH collections."
"I jump in the shower and wake up with Linné’s Activate Exfoliating Body Wash, which feels like you’re in a eucalyptus cloud."
"'Activated charcoal works because of its open, porous structure,' explains Jenna Levine, founder of LINNÉ Botanicals. Without absorbing into our bodies, activated charcoal can adsorb — or, in non-chemistry terms, stick itself to — not only bacteria but impurities of all kinds, including pollutants, toxins, venom, excess oil, chemicals, micro-particles and pharmaceuticals."
"Wash away the day: I wash my face before getting in the bath or showering. I love my cleanser from Linné"
"As early as the first grade, I loved potions and natural skincare," recalls Jenna Levine, founder of the cult natural beauty line, “When studying ancient Egypt, I had elected to recreate some of the beauty rituals practiced by Cleopatra. And while the edible face masks I crafted were designed to make my mother feel nourished and beautiful, I believe it was an attraction to the alchemy and a desire to uncover ethnobotanical histories that truly fueled this experimentation.”
"The biggest point of difference between shopping for traditional skincare and shopping for clean skincare is that clean skincare takes a lot more research, thought and consideration. It’s not always as simple as picking up the prettiest bottle or the one that advertises the most unbelievable claims. Admittedly, it’s a lot of hard work. Our mission at The Moment is to make that process easier on you by bringing forward the clean brands we love, and most importantly, giving you the power to be your own advocate for clean beauty. Yet still, there are a lot of clean skincare terms and questions we’ve yet to dissect (IE. what exactly is wildcrafted), so we’ve asked Jenna Levine, Founder of an absolutely incredible botanics based skincare line called LINNÉ Botanicals, to lend her thoughts. Actually, Levine is even more than a founder, she’s actually crazy knowledgable and passionate about plant science. Having studied botany, herbal medicine, yoga, massage therapy, Ayurvedic traditions, and Chinese medicine (just to name a few of her hobbies), we knew Levine was the right person to clear the air. Plus we get to hear her speak passionately about her favorite subject, which is obviously the best."
"Since we are not scientists or formulators ourselves, there was no better person to talk to than our friend and Founder of LINNÉ Botanicals, Jenna Levine. Levine is a clean-beauty power house, and her exuberance for plant knowledge shines through her elegantly formulated skincare line."
"To produce effective, safe skincare, it is vital to understand both skin science and plant science. Our namesake, Carl Von Linné, was both a physician and a botanist. In his time, training in botany was part of the medical curriculum and every doctor had to prepare and prescribe drugs derived from medicinal plants. In the 1800s, medicinal plant use was fundamental to human health."
"And for her small-batch skin-care range, Linné, Jenna Levine set calligraphy brush to paper, sketching a shiso leaf and enlarging it for featherlight graphics that reveal the hand of the maker. With a no-wrap holiday season, the mantra might as well be this: Waste not, want."
“A ritual in skin care is important, but you can become a slave to it...It’s not about compromising any level of performance, but saving an incredible amount of time and mindshare—not to mention wallet share,”
"Use olive oil from the kitchen as body oil, if I’m traveling without body oil, balm or lotion."
"This Linné Botanicals Smooth Balm is a body product, but I like to put it around my eyes and on my eyelids. I love that shimmer look, and it's good for potential wrinkles"
"We asked the glowiest girls in the game to tell us which beauty foods they’re eating every single day. Find out which ingredients made the list multiple times..."

“Skin care while traveling is tricky because you never know what you’re going to need. Right now, my skin is loving consistency, so I’ll be bringing my face serum from Linné as I use it every day.” Hannah Bronfman, social media star and D.J.
"Jenna Levine knows a lot about food and a lot about beauty and a lot about the way the two things influence and affect each other. Certified in California Native Plant Botany and Herbal Medicine, and having spent time studying with a naturalist in the Amazon as a teenager, it makes sense that she has a line of natural beauty products called Linné that are built to nourish your skin. Today, she’s sharing a few recipes that are as delicious as they are beneficial for your body."
“A lot of people for many years were using all these fancy French products, and a lot of them are full of chemicals, and it's kind of like, well what are you putting on your skin? I think that's where we are getting to now, this big shift with people wanting to go back to using things from the earth. It’s sort of like, well let’s have a look, can we pronounce the names on things on the back of our products? And if we can’t, let’s think again.”
"I use a mask once or twice a week when I have time. Or, better said, I use two of them: the Scrub Face Mask by Linné Botanicals, which smells like chamomile, bergamot, and natural honey and cares for your skin while cleansing and polishing it thoroughly thanks to fine granules"
"Many people are skeptical of face oils, but I’m here to say that face oils are my jam and they could be yours too. Linné Botanicals serves up greatness with their Repair Face Oil which is the perfect blend essential oils like rose hip and Jojoba. Not to mention it smells so refreshing too"
"What do you get when you combine the ingredients of a multivitamin, the energy of a crystal garden, and the ease of a hydrosol? The answer is Linné’s clever skincare hybrid, Refresh Facial Mist, which is fast becoming a favorite of fashion’s elite, with style stars like Kate Foley, Michelle Violy Harper, and the Hadid sisters (Alana gifted it to Gigi and Bella this past Christmas) amongst its earliest adopters. And in a time where it’s hard to decipher which products are truly beloved and which are funded celebrity advertisements, Linné cuts out the guesswork by doing zero paid influencer marketing—meaning their fans are as organically grown as the ingredients in the bottle..."
"Eco-savvy beauties will fall in love with this serum that’s 95 percent certified organic or wild-harvested. Key plant-based ingredients — think hibiscus, rosehip extract, kakadu plum — are not only rich in antioxidants, but help reduce inflammation, aka random breakouts."
"Most natural beauty brands thrive on being careful in how their products are formulated, but LINNÉ—a new skincare line based in New York—takes that mindfulness a step further. Everything from the meticulous sourcing of organic, wild-harvested ingredients and hand blending of the formulas to the systematic way the products are meant to be layered is thoughtfully considered...Needless to say, there’s a lot to love about this new line. "
ELLE - BEAUTY IT LIST - JUNE 2017
"Just like food your skincare should switch seasonally. If you are noticing the produce changing at your local farmer’s market it’s time to also change up your skincare. Winter skincare may feel necessary for places where weather is still fluctuating, but as your body starts adjusting to different environmental components, your skin could start reacting differently. Start by adding more antioxidants to your daily topical routine such as vitamins E and C to help protect and nourish your skin from free radical scavengers. This will help your natural barrier protection from potential allergens that are being released from blooming spring flowers and grasses this time of year. We love to keep the Linne refresh face mist on hand to spray throughout the day as a boost for the face with its calming and hydrating ingredients."
"LINNÉ IS ONE TO WATCH, in part due to the incredibly careful consideration founder Jenna Levine puts into each and every batch of product, all of which she still makes, meticulously, by hand. The newest addition to her line is this serum—which by the way, is actually a serum—some natural brands have an odd tendency to call oils serums. It should be noted that it smells incredible—citrusy, and refreshing. This is one of those serums that’s just all around good for skin health: it hydrates, strengthens capillaries, and fights inflammation. But it’s especially good for fighting any sort of scarring or hyperpigmentation. Kadaku plum, hibiscus, white cypress, and tea tree are all antioxidants and sources of vitamin C, working to get at those issues."
Byrdie- Best Exfoliating Face Washes for Every Budget- MAY 2017
"Whether used as a daily cleaner or a weekly mask, Linné Botanicals 99% organic detoxifies and cleanses the skin for a smooth, never dry finish"
Byrdie-These Are the Most Addicting Body Balms Ever- MAY 2017
"I'm obsessed with Linné, a relatively new beauty discovery. A line of gorgeously packaged, botanical-filled products, the body balm has an addictively bouncy texture and is made with nourishing meadowfoam seed oil and smells like bergamot and Cyprus. Rub it all over your body post-shower, and revel in your baby-soft skin."
“This 95% organic face mist composed of aloe vera juice, zinc, and hyaluronic acid refreshes and hydrates the skin for a more supple-looking complexion. Since this spray enhances the absorption of other skincare products, we recommend using it first thing in the morning”
"If the past few days are any indication, this summer is going to be a scorcher. And when it feels like it’s 95 degrees before stepping out the door, who couldn’t use an on-the-go boost in the form of a refreshing face mist? This season, though, the newest wave of atomizers offers much more than just a cooling spritz."
"We predict big things for Linné, a chic new botanical-based line handcrafted in Brooklyn that we learned about from our friends at The Detox Market. Their new face serum is made with a potent cocktail of 95% organic ingredients like honeysuckle and hibiscus to brighten and smooth uneven skin texture."
CAP BEAUTY- INGREDIENT EXPLORATION EVENT- APRIL 2017
"ALL YOU NEED is plants. That’s the idea behind LINNE Botanicals, a new brand of wild-harvested, plant-based skincare we’re loving — both for for the pretty packaging and total transparency of what’s inside. The latter comes from obsessive sourcing and simple ingredient lists made by the line’s glowy crafter, Jenna Levine, whose idea of natural beauty is one we couldn’t agree with more"
LIVE ON THE THINKING CAP : a culinary recipe series highlighting an array of nutritional ingredients that are as perfect in food as they are on the skin.
Start your week off with an invigorating at-home spa ritual. Exfoliate head to toe with our detoxifying and deeply nourishing ACTIVATE body wash. "A mega dose of transportive eucalyptus oil opens and decongests the respiratory system, shaking off the start of allergy season."
SKINCARE TIPS FROM GLOWING YOGIS ? "...I love Linne Purify face wash/mask—a new incredible face wash that feels like a light scrub and can also be used as a mask. It's perfect for traveling and does wonders for the skin as a mask. I also recommend headstands—they're a great way to flush the body and rejuvenate the skin..."
"A body wash formulated without water? Gasp! Surprisingly, it does exist—and it's better than we ever imagined. Mixed with aloe, coconut, and sea salt, this multitasking wash is made to be used once a week because it exfoliates as it cleanses. But because it's not overly harsh, it's nourishing enough to use every day, if you're into that, too."
" LINNÉ Botanicals REPAIR Face Oil: From one of our favorite brands created by one of our favorite girls, this oil is perfection. Chock-full of all of the best skin-loving ingredients such as Rosehip Seed, Sea Buckthorn Berry, Argan, Sacha Inchi, and Meadowfoam oils, this beautiful product soothes, protect, heals, and enlivens. Loved by the acne-prone and sensitive/dry-skin alike, this is the perfect face oil for everyone! Bonus: you can get the travel size in one of the beautiful Face Kits (along with some of their other amazing products) so you can stash in your gym bag or purse for glow on the go!"
METRO GRAPH MAGAZINE-GREEN GODDESS GOALS- MARCH 2017
"THIS IS UNLIKE ANY OTHER BODY WASH YOU'VE EVER TRIED. Don’t be deterred from its black color (it’s just the activated charcoal)—it’s rejuvenating, exfoliating, and nourishing without using any detergents (which dry out the skin). The smell reminds me of rich licorice—it’s a great pep-you-up scent that turns your shower into a more indulgent, spa-like ritual. And it leaves your skin feeling way softer than I’d expected."
"Linné's founder, Jenna believes in feeding your skin in the same way you feed your body- wholesome and naturally. This green cleanser feels like a (slightly exfoliating) smoothie for your face (seriously, read the ingredients, you could probably eat it)."
LINNE BODY BALM | loving this ultra chic and clean company. This balm keeps my body hydrated with target ingredients such as: meadowfoam, avocado oil, bergamot, geranium, and beeswax! And each product has a batch number along with an expiration date signaling how fresh and pure it is. LOVE the design, and that everything is organic or wild-harvested. Amazing all-around!
Hair, Beard, and Face Oil: Linné Repair

SHOW BAOTS- NATURE'S WAY- NOVEMBER 2016
My other mantra is "hydration, hydration, hydration." I start the day with apple cider vinegar and with a dash of local honey, and then I drink lots of water to flush my system early in the day. I drink water all day long and believe in face moisturizing twice daily too. Every evening I apply Linne Botanicals Face Serum Oil
generously after washing with their Purify Face Wash
I've spent most of my life with dry skin and no pimples—but for the last six to 12 months, I've had a new couple of bumps every few weeks. I suspect a couple of culprits: not moisturizing enough, while simultaneously not knowing what to do about hormonal oiliness. After what feels like countless rounds of trial and error, I've landed on an oil targeted at balancing oil production. It helps treat the problem before it starts, while still hydrating at the same time. —EF
Linné Botanicals – they do the best facial oils that are 100 percent organic and natural.
"To cull down my long list of personal obsessions, I decided to focus on my beauty and fitness must-haves. I recently drove four days in the California Mille, a 1,000-mile vintage car rally through Northern California, in a 1957 Porsche 356A Speedster with the top down the entire time. Needless to say, my face got sunburned and my lips dried out, despite the numerous Chap Stick applications. As soon as I returned home I applied Linné Botanicals Smooth Body Balm all over and within a day, the dry layers of skin were exfoliated and the smooth hydrated skin appeared; it was especially noticeable on my lips. Linné body balm was my go-to before the trip for its fresh scent, but now even more so, for its super-hydrating properties."

Founded by the daughter of a surgeon and a healthy cook, Linné Botanicals
is the brainchild of Jenna Levine, who began creating skin-care products in her kitchen at a young age (which were tested on her mom and sister). After receiving her certification in native plant botany and herbal medicine, Levine experimented with acne treatments for her sister using botanicals
and potent chemical compounds—to much success. (Um, best sister ever?) This led her to share her creation with others, hence her line of complexion-boosting bottles filled with seasonal ingredients and native plants.
VANITY FAIR SPAIN & MEXICO- WHO'S NEXT- AUGUST 2016
New line Linne Botanicals is one of the latest beauty brands to make waves on the natural beauty scene. Linne founder Jenna Levine
(who has certifications in both botany and herbal medicine) created the Purify face wash, which is packed with ingredients like aloe, jojoba oil, green bentonite clay, and tea tree oil for her sister, who suffered from a variety of skin problems. The cleanser helped clear up her sister’s skin, and soon all her friends were begging for a bottle. After a summer of sweat, sunscreen, and seawater, this is just the thing to get your skin back in top shape. ($58)
"He will never look at bar soap again after using the soothing, exfoliating, and handsome smelling body wash, made with superstar ingredients like aloe vera, avocado oil, volcanic ash, and Dead Sea salt. Pair with a scrubby charcoal towel for added efficacy—plus, this one from Morihata looks great in the bathroom."
