Pacifica Skin Care for Dry Skin + First Impression

Pacifica Skin Care

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.

*Reviews*

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! ^.^

Review: Andalou Naturals Vitamin C Beauty Balm

Andalou Naturals Vitamin C Beauty Balm
Andalou Naturals Vitamin C Beauty Balm

I’ve been using Andalou Naturals Vitamin C Beauty Balm for 2+ weeks. Here are my thoughts on it. 🙂

I bought this beauty balm thinking that I could make it my main makeup foundation. Well, it didn’t work out that way. This beauty balm has no coverage. It works better as a base. And that’s what I’m using it as — a base (makeup primer). It has a slippery feel to it. It leaves the skin feeling silky smooth. It makes my other makeup products glide on better. It contains SPF to protect the skin from the harsh UV rays.

Here are the ingredients:

ACTIVE INGREDIENTS: Zinc Oxide 20.0%

INGREDIENTS: Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice*, Purified Water (Aqua), Caprylic/Capric Triglycerides, Vegetable Glycerin, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil*, Polyglyceryl-2 Oleate, Polyhydroxystearic Acid, Polyglyceryl-2 Stearate, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil*, Punica Granatum (Pomegranate) Seed Oil*, Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Dimethicone, Magnesium Sulfate, Sorbitan Sesquioleate, Fruit Stem Cells (Malus Domestica, Solar Vitis) and BioActive 8 Berry Complex*, Sodium Hyaluronate, Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate (Vitamin C), Borago Officinalis (Borage) Seed Oil*, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract*, Zea Mays (Corn) Starch*, Camellia Sinensis (White Tea) Leaf Extract*†, Hibiscus Sabdariffa Flower Extract*†, Tocopherol, Iron Oxides, Phenethyl Alcohol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Citrus Tangerina (Tangerine) Peel Oil, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil* *Certified Organic Ingredients †Fair Trade Ingredients

This beauty balm contains oils, such as jojoba, sunflower, pomegranate, castor, borage, tangerine, and citrus, but it has not broken my skin out. Love how it contains Vitamin C too! I love the benefits of this beauty balm. It’s nice to have that extra layer of SPF under my actual makeup. My skin certainly feels smoother in texture when I remove my makeup. I’m not done with the first tube of this product, but I’ve already purchased another one. Summer is just around the corner, and I’m in need of a cream that protects my skin from the harsh UV rays! I’ll continue to use it for the next upcoming weeks and see what happens. I like it so far. 🙂 An updated review coming soon.
