Pacifica 100& Vegan & Cruelty Free
Pacifica has a huge array of products from make-up to skin care, fragrance & hair care. After trying a few of their products (pictured above) I definitely can see myself trying other things. I'm pretty minimalist, so some of what they offer wouldn't be of interest to me, but I look forward to seeing what else they carry that works for my routine. I'm 39, so I definitely am always on the hunt for a good cleanser, moisturizer and vitamin C serum. I've never really been too brand specific in a long term sense. Sometimes what I need is based on the time of year and changes to my skin. I purchased these in January, and they all feel super hydrating which is what I was hoping for. Canadian winters are harsh on the skin!
Pacifica Vegan Products Review
1. Pacifica Vegan Ceramide Extra Gentle Face Wash
This gentle facewash kind of reminds me of Spectro Jel. I'm not surprised it reminds me of spectro because they both mention not stripping away ones delicate skin barrier, and are both suitable for sensitive skin. Pacifica, like spectro jel, has a kind of gel like consistency that is moisturizing but still seems to pull off any makeup I'm wearing. (Really I only wear a bit of foundation to even out my skin tone, sometimes eye brow pencil.) Not sure how it would fare with mascara and heavier make-up. With all that being said I like Pacifica better, because I think it does a better job cleaning my skin. At least it feels cleaner than when I've used Spectro Jel.

2. Pacifica Glow Serum
Vitamin C serums are something I always add to my skin care routine. I have no idea how much they help or improve skin, I figure it isn't something immediate and more about a long term habit that can probably help the look of skin. This glow serum feels nice when I put it on, I like the smell, and I like the packaging and bottle it comes in. Packaging might not seem important, but one of the reasons I'm digging this brand is because of their commitment to more environmentally friendly packaging. From the Pacifica website: "Our goal is zero virgin plastic. Today more than 85% of our PET bottles are made from at least 50% post-consumer recycled material. Our boxes are made from FSC certified paper."

3. Pacifica Vegan Collagen Overnight Recovery Cream
The fact that I bought 4 products and love them all is impressive to me. This vegan collagen overnight recovery cream I will definitely purchase again. It feels super hydrating, and in the morning my skin is definitely softer and healthier looking. It's helping my skin survive the dry winter weather here in Canada!

4. Pacifica Glow Stick Lip Oil
This product I became instantly obsessed with. I stopped wearing lipstick when covid and mask wearing started. I guess I just kind of got out of the routine, then when I put it on again I wasn't digging it. I always find it settles into my fine lines, and I have no interest in figuring out how to make it work. I just want something easy. This lip oil is exactly that. It adds a lovely sheer yet rich tone to my lips, and it's super moisturizing. It feels like I'm nourishing my lips, but it also adds a nice colour to complete my minimalist make-up look.

Summary of Pacifica Skin Care:
I am impressed with this brand. It's 100% vegan, seems to be making an effort with its packaging to be more environmentally friendly, and even has a section on their site about supporting animal activism. The site doesn't dig deep and give more information, but I hope that the claims are legit. The quality seems great, and honestly I've been using their face wash and moisturizer and serum daily for a week, and my skin looks significantly better than it did prior. As I mentioned above I am 39 years old, I have sensitive skin, and I'm certain I will be purchasing again. If I try new things from this line I will add my thoughts here!
