Pacifica Skin Care for Dry Skin + First Impression

So I’ve been dealing with extremely dry and itchy skin. I’ve been searching for some ‘moisturizing’ skin care products to alleviate these symptoms. I’ve seen Pacifica skin care products whenever I’m out shopping. I thought I would give them a try this time. They have good reviews and all. Plus, they are vegan and cruelty-free. Why not? I ended up picking up….

I’ve had a chance to try both of them, so I can give my thoughts on them right now.


Pacifica Rose Flower Hydro Mist:

This is a hydrating spray or ‘hydro mist’ as it states on the bottle. It is indeed moisturizing, but it doesn’t feel heavy on the skin. It takes a few minutes for the product to absorb into the skin. I only spray my face once (in the morning) after I apply my makeup. It’s because my BB Cream can make my skin look dry and cracked. Yuck! It seems to be working. The only thing I don’t like about this spray is the fragrance.

Pacifica Cosmic Shield Hydration Lock Face Cream:

I was hoping to find a good face cream. This cream is more on the runny side. The texture feels more like a thicker serum than a face cream. It absorbs into the skin very well and leaves it feeling hydrated. I do have oily skin, and it did feel quite heavier on my skin than expected. I know anything that feels heavy on the skin will eventually break me out. That’s what happened. I ended up with a pimple near my hairline after using this. I stopped using it on my face. This ‘face cream’ isn’t for me. It sure works very well as an eye cream. It’s lightweight in texture, goes on delicately, and very hydrating. Same with this product (as the hydro mist), it has fragrance. Meh. I prefer my skin care products without fragrance.

Those are my thoughts on these skin care products. Check out my ongoing Tretinoin Journey! ^.^

Shopping Haul: Derma E, Maui, hello

Leave a comment

I purchased some beauty products on a whim about last week. I’ve been using them, but I’m not going to review them yet. Here’s a list of what I bought. 🙂

And why?

Derma E Vitamin C Micellar Cleansing Water Probiotics & Roobios:

I’m addicted to Derma E skin care products right now. Other products I’m using are…

Yeah, you’ve got the gist. I haven’t gotten around to reviewing most of these products. I’ve only reviewed ONE so far, haha. So this is my first time using a micellar water product. I’ve heard of it before, but I was never a fan of toners, and they look very similar to facial toners. I’ve been wandering around looking to see what I can do for my skin. I decided to try it out.

But first, what is micellar water? What does it do? Micellar water is also known as cleansing water (as the name of the product states). Micellar water or cleansing water contains tiny balls called micelles that attracts dirt, debris, and oil. All of that gunk gets removed from the face without using a face wash. You don’t have to rinse micellar water off. It also protects the skin’s natural barrier.

I picked Derma E because it is vegan, cruelty-free, and contains Vitamin C.

Maui Moisture Detoxifying + Volcanic Ash Shampoo for Dull, Congested Hair:

I was in need of a shampoo. I’ve seen Maui at the store plenty of times, but I never thought about it. With hair care products, I can easily jump around without doing much damage. Unless it’s a horrible product, haha. Here’s to my new shampoo! heh.

hello Activated Charcoal Fluoride Toothpaste:

I love charcoal-based products. I used another charcoal toothpaste before.

That was nearly a year ago. 😲 We’ll see how the new charcoal toothpaste goes. I’m looking forward to a brighter smile! Always. 🙂

What skin care products do you use? Any favorites? ♥
