Adding beauty fuel to my burning Pacifica obsession: Hawaiian Ruby Guava Body Wash ($18) and Body Butter ($18).
Both bits are part of Pacifica’s five-piece Hawaiian Ruby Guava collection of body care products scented with an island-y brew of guava, pomello (a citrus fruit, kinda like a grapefruit) and coconut.
The scent’s been around for a while, and I’m kicking myself for not trying it sooner. It smells authentic to me, and not overly sugary or artificial like so many of the Hawaiian-themed fragrances that are out there now. I catch a whiff on my skin and DING! DING! “This is the captain speaking. Flight attendants, prepare the cabin for landing. Welcome to Hawaii, folks, and mahalo for choosing to fly with us and Pacifica Hawaiian Ruby Guava…”
I’m in lurve with the fragrance, but I also like how hydrating both the wash and the butter are. They deliver rich, long-lasting moisture to my skin. Tabs doesn’t really care about that, though. He likes ‘em because 1) they weren’t tested on animals, and 2) he adores the packaging.
More Pacifica reviews!
I’m a little peeved that Pacifica decided to increase the prices of their body butters from $15 to $18, but I’m assuming it had something to do with their switch from jars to the tubes for the packaging. I prefer the new tubes, hands down.
If you like tropical, fruity fragrances, give ‘em a quick sniff on one of your next trips to Sephora or Whole Foods, and when you do, close your eyes and imagine yourself under an umbrella on a beautiful tropical beach. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: A+
