Who doesn’t love finding quality skincare that’s affordable? I always love having the opportunity to try out new, affordable skincare brands. One of those brands that I’ve had my eyes on is Pacifica. You can find them easily at your local Target and ULTA! I was sent an amazing box of the new products from Pacifica and I couldn’t wait to dig in and blog about these. But where to begin?
Cleanse and Moisturize
Making sure your skin is clean and fresh is the first, and most important step. Include are two products to help achieve nice, clear skin.
Happy Water Herbal Tea Essence Wash (8 fl oz) ($12) – This is a rinse-free multi-cleanser that’s 100% vegan and cruelty-free. Use a cotton pad and apply a small amount to that, then apply it to the skin in round circular motions to remove dirt, makeup, and oil. This has a nice scent and doesn’t trigger any migraines.
Berry Matcha Recharge Face Lotion (1.7 fl oz) ($18) – This hydrating, feather-light lotion features Berry Happy Extract with green tea, super berries, and arctic root. It works to induce a perm-grin on your skin. Just message it onto clean skin. It can be used daily.
Happy Essence Hydro Mist (4 fl 0z) ($12) – Refresh and fight the look of fatigue. Integrating essence technology, this water-based spray offers powerhouse ingredients directly to your skin while it hydrates and refreshes. Also works as a moisturizing toner. This is one of the few items I dug into already and I’m loving it. I’ve mostly used it as a toner at night and I’m absolutely loving how my skin looks and feels. I’ll spray a little bit on and that’s it. Sometimes I’ll spray and use a cotton round and gently dab it into the skin just to make sure I’m not missing any areas.
Berry Happy Cleansing Wipes (30 count) ($6) – These fresh, bright berry infused wipes gently remove the dirty, daily pollutants and other things you don’t want to sleep in. No rinsing is required! Works for all skin types.
I don’t use masks that often since I’ve had bad reactions to the ones I’ve tested out, from various brands, in the past. I was sent two and here’s hoping one ends up being a keeper!
Cocoa Rush Anti-Fatigue Mask (3 fl oz) ($15) – Wake up happy! This pudding mask with cocoa and green tea contains their innovative Berry Happy Extract to make you smile. Your skin is going to look awake when you use this mask. It’s transitioning from winter to spring here so my skin is pretty dry and can definitely use this mask. Apply a thick layer to clean skin. Let it sit and do its magic for 10 to 20 minutes. Rinse well, and follow with a moisturizer.
Cherry Lava Purify Mask (2.25 fl oz) ($14) – If you’re looking to fight dirty than this purify mask is for you! You can wear it as a mask, then massage it to foam and loose all the rest of the junk trying to hide out and wreak havoc on your skin. This will go after skin damaging grime, dirty pores, blackheads, and other nasties you’re trying to get rid of. I used this once and it definitely went after my pores. They weren’t completely gone, but a lot less pores are on my nose!
Hair masks rage so of course I was intrigued when I saw this in the box. I have to admit, there’s something about hair masks that’s always scared me from ever trying them. I guess it’s time for me to get over those fears and see if this really works.
Berry Dreamy Sleep Over Hydration Mask ( 6 fl oz) ($16) – This innovative leave-on mask is infused with super berry extracts including goji, acai, and raspberry. If you have dry hair this could be the mask you’ve been looking for. This works for all hair types, especially dry, color treated, and damaged hair. I’m always a little worrisome when it comes to hair masks, which is why I haven’t tried this yet.
Yes, a lip product that’s part of the skincare line! This is what I’m intrigued about the most. This is great if you’re someone always trying or changing lip products. It will wipe away the color you have on and hydrate.
Cherry Kisses Hydrating Lipstick Wipes (30 count) ($6) – For on-the-fly lipstick changes or simply a freshen up, these natural fiber towelettes have an exfoliating texture to help get your lips ready for their next big adventure. Use at bedtime to save your pretty pillow. Simply wipe off your lipstick and reapply a new one, or just head to bed.
Pacifica products are 100% vegan and cruelty free. I’ll be digging into these more and spending more time seeing which ones work and which didn’t. Skincare does take a little bit longer to test out since you don’t always get a reaction (good or bad) right away.
These Pacifica products are available exclusively at ULTA. Let me know what you’re currently loving from Pacifica. I’m always on the hunt to try new products / brands.
