Pacifica Body Butter

What was I thinking? Me, a self-confessed lotion addict, skipped over these Pacifica Body Butters for years upon years and I have no clue why.

But now that I have tried them, I think I might be hooked!

Pacifica is a company dedicated to the environment, which gives them bonus points. All their skin care products are cruelty-free and 100% Vegan. Their fragrances use high quality ingredients found from all over the world and they don’t support the use of natural ingredients that are either threatened or where the harvesting of it endangers anything in the environment. The candles are all made in the USA and contain lead-free wicks.

But back to the body butter 🙂

These are made with Shea butter, almond oil and safflower oil, which are all very moisturizing. They feel thick and absorbent, not greasy or heavy at all.

They currently come in at least 12 scents and since I hadn’t tried them before and wanted to make sure I liked them, I went with just two scents and in a smaller size.

Pacifica Tahitian Gardenia

Pacifica Tahitian Gardenia 2

Tahitian Gardenia is a really nice scent, obviously strong on the Gardenia and lighter on the other “notes” of Jasmine and Ylang Ylang.

I happen to love Gardenia as long as it doesn’t smell fake, and this doesn’t at all, it’s really lovely.

Pacifica Indian Coconut Nectar

Pacifica Indian Coconut Nectar 2

Indian Coconut Butter is a heavier scent than Tahitian Gardenia to my nose. It smells of coconut and vanilla mostly, with a little spiciness to it, but not musky (which I loathe).

I like the smell of this one at first but after I rub it in, it starts smelling a little artificial to me. Not overly so and not so much that I won’t use it, but I’m not sure I would buy this particular one again.

Some of the other scents include:

Hawaiian Ruby Guava
Brazilian Mango Grapefruit
Lotus Garden
Malibu Lemon Blossom
Tuscan Blood Orange
Mediterranean Fig
French Lilac
California Star Jasmine
Persian Rose
Waikiki Pikake

I think I want to try like 90% of these other ones!

If you go to Pacifica’s actual website they have them in both 8 oz tubes or jars, but you can also find smaller sizes of some (not all) of the scents on Sephora.

The ones I got were 2.5 oz and 3 oz, which is kind of odd that they are different sizes.

Availability: Their website or Sephora

Pricing: $18.00 for 8 oz tube or jar or $5.00 for 2.5 or 3 oz

Have you tried any of the Pacifica products?
