Pacifica Tahitian Gardenia Body Butter



I have had a very hectic weekend! Lots of running around and going places! By the end of the weekend my skin was so dry and exhausted, I thought it the perfect time to test out the Pacifica Tahitian Gardenia Body Butter!

Can I just say... yum!



"A heady, vintage-inspired blend of intoxicating gardenia, jasmine, orange flowers, tea leaves and ylang ylang."

Come on, that sounds amazing, doesn't it? Well that's exactly how it smells! The smell is highly intoxicating but very smooth, and I find myself using it just for the smell! I'm definitely planning on buying the perfume from this particular range, as it's very exotic and sensual!



It looks like you could just eat it, doesn't it!



All scents aside, the cream itself is very luxurious! It's made with shea butter, almond oil and safflower oil - how much more moisturising can you get than that? It's also completely free of parabens and other nasties.

The butter itself really moisturises perfectly! I can be rather fussy when it comes to body moisturisers and butters, so I was a little hesitant at first that this may not check all my boxes! But it certainly has!

Blends into the skin easily. Check.
No greasy residue. Check.
Actually keeps my skin moisturised - no quick returning dryness. Check.
Natural scents, no artificial scents. Check.
Actually moisturises. Check.

So as you can see, checks all the important boxes! It is absolutely beautiful on my skin, doesn't dry me out at all or leave me feeling greasy or wet, like some moisturisers do! And the scent drives me wild! I'm in love with it!

The quality of the product is just amazing, and the packaging is just gorgeous! You can see that a lot of effort has been put into this brand to really make their goods look and feel appealing! Just using this makes me feel really classy and special, as if I'm using a $50 tube of body butter - whereas it only retails for $27.95 from Scentiments! Score!

I'll definitely be buying more of these babies, and more of the Pacifica range!
It's beautiful, luxurious skincare - and makes you feel luxurious just by using them!

Have you tried anything from Pacifica yet?

    1. Oh no, that's a shame! I've only used one of the Body Shop Moisturisers, but only on my hands so I haven't experienced much greasiness... maybe if I used a body moisturiser though!
      But yes, I'm very lucky this one has no greasiness at all! :D
