Pacifica is a brand that I was introduced to by ipsy. It is a vegan, cruelty-free, and gluten-free brand. All products are also made in the USA. You can find product details here and here. I would also consider this brand to be higher end since the pricing of the products matches what Sephora would carry. In fact, Sephora actually used to carry Pacifica’s line of products.
I’ve replaced nearly everything that I used to use with Pacifica products because of the high quality that the brand consistently puts out. If you’re a fan of The Body Shop, I’d highly recommend looking into Pacifica products. I used to love TBS but now I’ve completely switched over. Pacifica’s quality of products is significantly higher and the fragrances are more luxurious. I’ve never gotten a compliment on my fragrance when using TBS products but I get compliments left and right whenever I use Pacifica.
I try to buy directly from Pacifica to keep their profits as high as possible. I’m honestly not sure how retail works in terms of distribution of product; but I’m under the impression that by buying from the warehouse and not from Ulta or health food stores, more profits go to Pacifica and therefore more proceeds go towards nonprofit organizations such as the Oceans Future Society.
The haul that I will be showing you consists of multiple online orders that I made directly from Pacifica’s website. I’ll briefly go over the products in this post and I will put out more in-depth reviews on the products later on. I also have one more order that I made today and it isn’t featured in this post. I will make a separate haul post on those products.
Products that I purchased:
- Island Vanilla Body Butter
- Hawaiian Ruby Guava Body Butter
- Island Vanilla Perfume Spray
- Island Vanilla Solid Perfume
- Tuscan Blood Orange Solid Perfume (sample)
- Lotion Wipes (Island Vanilla + Tuscan Blood Orange)
- Purify Coconut Water Cleansing Wipes
- Natural Soap (Tuscan Blood Orange, Island Vanilla, Hawaiian Ruby Gauva, Malibu Lemon Blossom, Brazilian Mango Grapefruit, Waikiki Pikake, French Lilac, Mediterranean Fig, and California Star Jasmine)
➸ First of all, the packaging is SUPER adorable. If you spend over $40, you get free gift wrapping if you want it. Your order will come in a gold box filled with paper worms and then tied together with a ribbon. You also get a free sample when you spend a certain amount. Right now you’ll get a solid perfume sample with every $30.00 purchase.
➸ A single bar of soap costs $6.00 at Pacifica. However, I purchased the custom soap gift option which allowed me to pick 6 soaps for the price of 5. I figured this would be a great way to try all of the fragrances and figure out what I liked best. Even if I dislike the scent, I’ll still use it up. I once purchased the Mexican Cocoa scent and I HATED it. But since it was a soap, I used up the entire bar. Each bar of soap is decently sized and lasts about 1-2 months, so I think that the price is justified.
➸ The body butters are some of the most luxurious body butters that I have ever used. I used to use The Body Shop’s body butters but they’re $20 a tub and I didn’t like a lot of the fragrances that the store offered. Before Pacifica, I used to shop at The Body Shop because of community fair trade and seemingly natural products. Pacifica is paraben free, local, and the scents are better all around. I also prefer having a tube over dipping my fingers into a tub.
➸ The lotion wipes are AMAZING. They’re perfect for anybody who is in a rush or who wants to quickly refresh their scent without masking odors. They provide a very lightweight level of moisture and they’re very convenient to carry around in my purse. Sure, it’s larger than a travel sized tube of lotion but these wipes also won’t leak into my bag. As of right now, I have this product in every scent that Pacifica offers.
➸ The perfume spray is very little but it sure pack a punch. Each bottle is one ounce which is the same size as a Victoria’s Secret EDT. The perfume doesn’t come with a lid but I actually don’t mind. After owning the perfume for a little while, I’m actually HAPPY that I don’t have to worry about losing a cap. The perfume lasts almost all day.
➸ The solid perfume is amazing. It’s perfect for people who are in sensitive environments such as schools or hospitals. It provides a nice scent that is subtle enough for only you to notice. The solid perfumes last about an hour or two.
➸ The cleansing wipes are fantastic for cleansing the face. They do a great job at removing most of my makeup. The only thing I have trouble removing with these wipes is waterproof makeup. The scent of these wipes are similar to Indian Coconut Nectar. I can’t really tell the two apart. I also like these wipes to use the in a similar way that I would use the lotion wipes.
