New Beauty Monday – Pacifica 💫

Happy September – I hope your Summer was lovely (Northern Hemisphere!)

So Glad to be back at writing!

Expect a Lot of beauty! Instagram writing has never been enough for me….This site is mine and it’s forever so…

I will have my Spring/ Summer 2022 Faves up this week as well.

 

Let’s Start Back with Pacifica!

 

 

I am Going to tell you guys what my favourites are from this lovely bundle- so kindly gifted.

Skincare First Always

 

WAKE UP BEAUTIFUL

Retinoid Serum

From Pacifica’s webiste

“Defy the appearance of aging with this little overachiever. A new generation in retinoid serums, this clean formula uses highly potent, petroleum-free Granactive Retinoid, mushrooms, melatonin, and quinoa to tackle fine lines, wrinkles and elasticity. Use a few drops nightly to wake up to your most beautiful skin.

Ingredients We Love

Granactive Retinoid: Petroleum-free retinoid known for helping fight signs of aging, and found to be less irritating than traditional retinol.

Melatonin: In your body, melatonin reminds your brain it’s time to sleep. On your skin, melatonin is a supercharged free-radical scavenger. One of the key ingredients in your fight against aging.

Mushrooms: Promote hydration and help reduce puffiness.

Quinoa: Loaded with antioxidants, which help fight free radicals, and high in lysine, which is an amino acid that helps promote collagen production.”

 

 

My Thoughts- 

I love it. I think it’s great for night time use as the next morning I saw a light shed of dead skin cells. Personally, I wouldn’t use any sort of retinoids during the day: no matter how much spf I use. Night is when our skin does its restoring and its repairing so I always let my retinol/ retinoids do their powerful work at night.

WAKE UP BEAUTIFUL

Overnight Retinoid Cream

“Sleep pretty knowing our Wake Up Beautiful Retinoid Cream is working over-time. This light-as-a-pillow, nighttime moisturizer is packed with potent ingredients to help hydrate and repair skin while you sleep. Our patented RestLab ComplexTM combines a powerhouse of natural and clinically studied ingredients to address signs of aging and hydrate skin so that you can wake up feeling and looking beautiful.

My Thoughts- 

Again I love it. It’s a perfect match for its sister serum. My skin has shed quite a bit since starting to use it. PLEASE always do a patch test when trying new products! Yes this does increase the cell turnover and I can definitely see that in the morning when I am just about to wash my face. I think that if you are new to the world of retinoids this is the perfect pair.

 

 

VEGAN COLLAGEN

Recovery Body Butter

Show your body the love it deserves with clean, compassionate care. Our Vegan Collagen Body Butter is infused with our signature vegan collagen fermented peptides, plus shea butter and floral extracts to help supports elasticity and provide intense moisture to dulldry skin.

My Thoughts

This is like a whipped cream dream. I had to take a photo of the texture because wow it’s luscious. It smells incredible and sinks in quickly. I always apply body butters/ creams straight out of the bath or shower. It’s like the skin is way more receptive to moisture.  Mega Mega love.

 

And lastly for now

Their Fragrances!

When i first really getting into beauty intensely -about 18 years ago – Pacifica’s Fragrances were some of my first faves.

NEON MOON

Spray Perfume

“Inspired by a full moon in Ibiza, this is an explosion of scent. Sandalwood, jasmine and smoky cardamom evoke a sense of mystery and fluidity. Our Neon Moon Moods Perfume is a bold, gender-neutral aroma with enigmatic floral notes and grounding earth notes. Much like the illuminating moon in its highest power, prepare to make a statement.

The Moon Meaning: Full Moon. Mysterious, alluring and breathtaking.

The Moon Mood: Fluidity. Energetic Sandalwood, Luscious Jasmine, Covetable Smoky cardamom”

 

DREAM MOON

Spray Perfume

“A mesmerizing blend of pink rose, velvety sandalwood and subtle, earthy patchouli inspired by the dreamy full moon, which is said to spark compassion, kindness and dreams. Our Dream Moon Spray Perfume is a liquid fantasy in bottle with elevated high frequency floral notes and grounded earth notes. Float above it all and be dreamy.The Moon Meaning: Dreamy Full Moon. Dreamy, compassion and calmness.
The Moon Mood: Visionary. Patchouli, for sacredness. Sandalwood, for divine. Pink rose, for astral.”

I love them both but I would say Dream Moon is my fave. The Vibe is a little bit softer. Think the 1970’s with some bright glam- to paint a visual for you.

I NEED to try more of their fragrances as they really are poetic and hold some nostalgia for me.

 

 

 

Thank You Pacifica for the gorgeousness! Love who they are as a brand and what they stand for!
