Smelling good is an essential for all of us – we don’t want to be known as the stinky person. For obvious reasons. But finding a natural perfume can be ridiculously difficult to do. Luckily Pacifica has saved the day with their roll-on perfume, lip balm and body lotion sets! Like the Hawaiian Guava Take Me There set.
The packaging on Pacifica products are stunning – each and every product seems to look just as beautiful as the next. I am seriously in love with the gold too. For reference, their Radiant Shimmer Coconut Multiples were just as pretty. So I was very excited when I opened this little gift set after ordering it from Well.ca. (Are you sick of me saying how much stuff I’ve ordered from Well.ca? I swear I have an addiction now…)
The gift set comes with a Guava Berry Color Quench Tinted Lip Balm, Hawaiian Ruby Guava Body Butter and Hawaiian Ruby Guava Roll-on perfume. If you break the set down, you’re getting the three products for roughly $8.00 each. Not too shabby.
Pacifica describes the gift set as: “Inspired by a surfing trip to Hawaii, this sexy and sultry tropical blend combines sweet, berry-like notes of Guava with a bright, citrusy top note of Pomelo and a warm and subtle Coconut base.” I can definitely agree that the scent of this set really does make you think of warm sunlight and basking on sandy beaches in the middle of Summer. Pacifica is a natural brand that is cruelty-free, 100% vegan and the products are made in the USA.
As well, this set is free of parabens, petrolatum, phthalates and mineral oils.
Hawaiian Ruby Guava Body Butter (Full Size 8oz is Regularly $15.00)
This product feels very lightweight once applied to the skin, and it absorbs very quickly. I’ve fallen in love with this body butter and can definitely see myself applying this after a shower in the summer – but right now in the winter it’s not my go-to scent (which applies to all of these products to be honest.) At least for this cold winter weather it does provide a lot of hydration – so if they have other more “wintery” Body Butter scents I think that would be a total hit. I am in love with the formula.
Hawaiian Ruby Guava Roll on Perfume (Regularly $12)
Mmmm. This scent is so sweet and floral – I wish I was in Hawaii right now! I’ve never been, but I can definitely imagine how well this would suit the atmosphere there. I’m more of a musky-scent lover (The Body Shop’s White Musk Perfume is my current go-to.) But this definitely has some merit to it. Great for a beach day or just bumming around in the sunshine. If I’m totally honest, I think this scent is more suited for a teenager.
Again, this scent is very floral and a little bit stronger with the guava scent than the body butter.
Guava Berry Color Quench Tinted Lip Balm (Regularly $5.00)
This particular lip balm is “Free of carmine, beeswax, lanolin, phthalates, parabens, mineral oils, GMOs, triclosan, propylene glycol and petroleum.” It uses coconut and avocado oils to provide moisture to poor dehydrated lips. This provides a very sheer tint – and errs more on the side of lip balm than tinted lip balm. However, it is still a really nice formula that glides onto the lips easily and feels very moisturizing. I have to admit that the taste is so sweet I pretty much licked it all off of my lips. It tastes like candy. (You probably shouldn’t lick it all off your lips…)
If you’re still on the hunt for a gift, the Hawaiian Ruby Guava Take Me There set is perfect for someone who loves summer and sweet, floral scents. They’ll instantly be whisked away. Or.. if it’s something that you’re into, then this is a great way to test out Pacifica products!
