Pacifica’s California Star Jasmine Body Butter ($18), the newest addition to the company’s line of fragrant moisturizers, makes me want to drop everything right now and drive down to Santa Cruz for dinner.
A warm mix of jasmine and orange set to a base of musky driftwood, the scent reminds me of leisurely walks along the Beach Boardwalk at night, and it feels cozier than the other Pacifica Body Butters I’ve been wearing lately (Brazilian Mango Grapefruit, Hawaiian Ruby Guava and Malibu Lemon Blossom).
If I leave the house now, I could be cycling through the seaside town in my knit sweater, shorts and flip flops before dusk, a cool summer breeze blowing through my hair…
The bright packaging even looks like the design on one of my favorite surf T’s. I’ve kept the tube on my desk all weekend long, applying the lotion frequently to my hands whenever I’ve needed a quick boost, ala “Calgon take me away!”
Like Pacifica’s other products, it’s a little pricey, but if you’re fond of comfy white florals and beachy scents, I think it’s well worth checking out. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: A-
