Veganlicious Beauty Mondays: Pacifica Personalized Facial
I (and possibly you) spend a lot of time reading ingredients, scouring products for any non-vegan culprits. So it’s a really welcome relief when a brand pledges to be 100% vegan (and, of course, 100% cruelty free) on ALL of its products. That’s exactly what Pacifica does, and that’s exactly why you’ll find their beautifully decorated bottles lining my shower and bathroom shelves. I love Pacifica!! (And so their Instagram and Twitter handles are forever apropos: @ilovepacifica.)
Pacifica has launched a few new products that will help you give yourself (and your friends!) an at-home facial.
Enzymatic Exfoliating Wipes
Most wipes are good for cleansing on-the-go, like after the gym or on a hot day. These wipes go one step further, with exfoliating peach and abricot. They’re meant to be used on clean skin to clear out dead cells and anything leftover. But to be honest, they also make great all-in-one cleansing wipes for those mornings when you oversleep and don’t have time to properly scrub up.
Dreamy Skin Solutions Scrubs & Masks Kit
This tightly-packed box contains five tiny bottles of different facial-like skin treatments. Lucky for you, I gave each one a test drive:
-Glow Baby Youthful Face Scrub: There are tiny walnut grains in this scrub. If you’re into exfoliation, start here.
-Skin Revival Micro Dermabrasion: This wash had a pleasant tingle to it. It still left my skin smoother, but it felt gentler somehow.
-Future Youth Enzymatic Resurfacing Mask: Even my husband enjoyed this mask. “My skin feels smoother!!” he exclaimed in disbelief.
-Pore Refine Deep Detox Mask: This didn’t do much for me. It might work nicely as a basic cleanser, but it didn’t clean out my pores.
-Vital Immersion Deep Hydration Mask: After the half hour leave-on period, my skin really did feel supple and tender. You can try leaving it on overnight for even better results.
Skincarma Restorative Roll-On Face Oil
I was very reluctant to try this oil, for fear it would grease up my blemish-prone skin. I first tried it on just a little corner of my cheek (better safe than sorry, right?) Within a few minutes, my skin drank it up and was smooth. It stayed that way – no grease or clogged pores later on. So, color me impressed. While this product is suitable for all skin types, I think it would have its greatest impact on dry skin.
Also, it’s what’s inside that counts, right? Of course. But don’t let that take away from the decadent, gold-trimmed designs on all Pacifica products. I particularly enjoy their sayings on the sides of boxes: reminders that “love is more than skin deep,” for example. So grab a few pals – perhaps a facial party is in order!
