Ah, man. A guava scented body butter. I am in love with anything guava, so when I saw this baby in Target on sale, I had to pick it up. Plus, the weather has been so bipolar in Indiana lately that my skin has been super dry and gross. Never mind that I have other lotions at home, that was how I rationalized my purchase of this body butter, haha. I’ve never tried Pacifica before, so heck, why not?
Oh, and did I mention that it smells da bomb? They describe the scent as “a sexy and sultry tropical blend of sweet, berry-like guava with bright, citrusy top notes of pomelo and a warm and subtle coconut base.” I don’t know about all that, but it sure does smell delicious!
Ingredient List. Cruelty free? Check. Free of parabens, phthalates, mineral oil, peanut oil and petrolatum? Check. This luxurious body butter is chock full of natural moisturizing ingredients to leave your skin feeling soft and beautiful. The fragrance is supposed to be made with natural and essential oils… but it is worded a little vaguely so I’m not sure if that means it makes up the total fragrance or a portion. The fragrance is a little heavy, in my opinion, although it does smell good.
Oh, and for all you vegans out there, this body butter is 100% vegan. 😉
Hmm, creamy. This is a body butter so it is pretty thick as you can see. It soaked into my skin quite nicely and kept it hydrated. I put it on after I took a shower at night and when I woke up my skin was still feeling quite nice! Speaking of applying this after a shower, if you are planning to apply this to your entire body in one shot and dislike heavy fragrance, this might not be the body butter for you. It gets really overwhelming, at least to me.
Pacifica has other body butters in other fragrances as well that sound equally delicious. In fact, I’m a little embarrassed to say I sat in front of the Target stand arguing with myself over which one I wanted to buy haha! They had Tuscan Blood Orange and Indian Coconut Nectar to choose from, but I looked online and there were so many more! Who knows how long I would have been there if there were even more options. 😉
Overall, this is a pretty good body butter if you don’t mind a little bit of a strong fragrance. On the flip side, the fragrance fades and stays with you for quite awhile. I was still smelling it faintly after four hours of wear. So that is a plus!
