Pacifica Body Butters Review

Pacifica Body Butters

*press samples, except for Waikiki Pikake which I purchased*

I get asked a lot about what I do to make my cuticles look nice and not get hangnails. My secret? I just put body butter or lotion on my hands. Yup, no cuticle oils or anything special for this gal. I've used Solar Oil and China Glaze Peppermint Cuticle oil, etc., but they end up making my cuticles feel dry. I bought Pacifica body butters before I received Hawaiian Ruby Guava and Tuscan Blood Orange to review, so I've been a fan of Pacifica for awhile now. I love what they stand for and how their products are vegan and have no:

Animal testing, animal ingredients, FD&C color, phthalates, parabens, sulfates, propylene glycol, benzene, mineral oil, petroleum, peanut oil, triclosan, and other ingredients you do not want on your skin.

I also love how the scents are reminiscent of what they're called, but there is a complexity to make them more than just one notes. If you not a fan of greasy lotions, these may not be for you. Being a scientist, I wash my hands all day and night. I need something really intense to keep me from getting cracked nails and skin. Now that fall is coming, this may be something you want to pick up from your local Target store or the Pacifica website. The larger sized body butter will set you back $15 for an 8 oz tube, but will last forever, but you can also get smaller versions at 2.5 oz and they are $7. They have a lot of scents, so you may want to purchase the smaller ones first. The three I have shown above I really love, and I want to try the Tahitian Gardenia next. The 2.5 oz will probably last a little while and would make great stocking stuffers. 

I also love their new skincare line (I purchased all this on my own), especially the Sea Foam Complete Face Wash and the Dreamy Youth Day & Night Face Cream. The BB Cream was a bit too shiny for my face and wouldn't really recommend that for oily or combination skin.
