Pacifica is my absolute favorite skincare brand and almost everything I use comes from them. I’m always trying different products and while I do love most of them, some are misses. I wouldn’t say that anything I’m reviewing today is bad but it didn’t all work for me. Let’s get into the reviews!
The Cocoa Cinnamon Dual Exfoliant is $14.00 and you get 6 ounces of product. It comes in a plastic tub with a secure, screw on lid. It uses cocoa seed butter, cinnamon and plant oils to hydrate skin and improve rough, bumpy texture.
I wouldn’t say that this is the best exfoliant in the world but I still love it. This doesn’t really matter as far as performance goes but this stuff smells AMAZING. It has the most delicious, dessert type scent. It also really hydrates the skin. I tend to use it on my arms and it makes them feel so soft. If you’re looking for a gentle exfoliant, try this.
The Cosmic Hemp Balancing Face Wash is $10.00 and you get 5.6 ounces of product. It comes in a plastic bottle with a pump. Infused with hemp and amino acids, this wash is supposed to help balance oily skin while providing moisture.
I really like this wash but it hasn’t done anything miraculous for my skin. My skin does feel clean after using it and it doesn’t dry me out or make me break out but I don’t think it’s helped to improve acne, texture, etc. I would buy it again but it’s not a must have.
The Island Vanilla Body Butter is $15.00 for 8 ounces of product and the Hair and Body Mist is $5.00 for 2 ounces of product; there are larger sizes available. Both are in standard lotion/perfume packaging.
I really like both of these products but I’m not sure if they’re totally worth the money. The Island Vanilla scent is just delicious. It’s a perfect warm vanilla smell; it makes me think of Bath n Body’s Warm Vanilla Sugar. However, the scent doesn’t last long with either the Body Butter or Hair and Body Mist. I do think the Body Butter scent lingers a tad bit longer, though. The Body Butter is fairly moisturizing but it’s more of just a simple lotion rather than a thick, rich butter. Overall, I like both of these products and would repurchase them but only at a discount.
I bought the Clean Skin Superstars Trio for $10.00. It contains the Clean Shot Vegan Amino Acid 10% Complex Solution, Clean Shot BHA/AHA 25% Peel Solution and Clean Shot Hyaluronic Acid 5% Solution. Each bottle contains 0.80 ounces of product. I bought the Clean Shot Granactive Retinoid 5% in Seawater separately for $16.00 and it also contains 0.80 ounces of product. Each bottle is glass with a dropper.
The Clean Shot Vegan Amino Acid 10% Complex Solution contains a blend of amino acids that help to restore, soothe, and strengthen skin. I found it to be very hydrating and I while I did like it, it’s not a necessity in my routine. I feel I can get similar results by just using a moisturizer.
I couldn’t use the Clean Shot BHA/AHA 25% Peel Solution so I can’t review it. It was WAY too strong for my sensitive skin. It started burning as soon as I put it on. It might work for those with less sensitive skin but I can’t say for sure.
Like the Clean Shot Vegan Amino Acid, the Clean Shot Hyaluronic Acid 5% Solution was very hydrating but did nothing spectacular.
The Clean Shot Granactive Retinoid 5% in Seawater was gentle on my skin but I honestly didn’t see any results from it.
As a whole, the Clean Shot line has been a miss for me. I prefer the serums in the larger bottles from Pacifica and they are also a better deal.
Since trying out all of these products, I’ve bought a ton more things from Pacifica. I will hopefully have reviews up for all of that in a few months. If you’ve tried anything from the brand, I’d love to know what your favorite product is. Thanks for reading and have a great day!
