A lesson in stupidity with Pacifica Hawaiian Ruby Guava
Do you ever have those moments when you know you are making a big mistake and you can almost see it in slow motion and but you keep doing it anyway? I made said mistake about eight weeks ago when I was at the Ala Moana Shopping Centre in Honolulu, Hawaii. I was in Sephora looking at the Pacifica Hawaiian Ruby Guava range and instead of buying some shower gels and body lotions I bought the gift set. Now don’t get me wrong it is very nice but I should have bought more stuff!
This gift set includes a solid perfume, body butter, and a soy wax candle. They even include a little box of matches! This scent is described as a ‘ intoxicating floral-raspberry scent with a touch of coconut and tart pomello’. As soon as you open the box the fragrance goes right through you -it’s gorgeous! I will use the candle during the winter when I need a pick me up, same with the body butter. The solid perfume tin looks like lip balm so I have to keep reminding myself to put it on my pulse points and not my face.
The website says ‘Pacifica skin care is free of Parabens, Sulfates, Propylene Glycol, Phthalates, GMOs, Triclosan and Petro-chemicals. Pacifica products are cruelty-free and 100% vegan’. They currently do 24 different scents and there really is something for everyone. I want to smell them all. Nature’s Boutique stocks quite a few of the soaps, body butters, and soy candles but I’ve yet to find the shower gel in the UK. We don’t have Sephora here anymore so I will have to keep looking. In the meantime if you know anyone in the UK/EU who sells the shower gels please tell me!
