I purchased this because I love the concept, and initially liked the scent. I'm a sucker for crystal-related things and watermelon-scented things, so this fragrance seemed perfect for me. The scent is described as lemongrass + watermelon. When I first smelled it in store in the summertime, I got a burst of juicy watermelon and sweet lemon. This perfume is vegan, cruelty-free. The fact that there's tourmaline in it was a bonus, as tourmaline is described as having the following properties: "promoting inspiration and happiness, reducing fear, and building self-confidence. It also balances yin-yang energies. Helps bridge physical with the spiritual." (Source: https://www.thoughtco.com/healing-properties-of-tourmaline-1729917)Those are the good things, now here's the bad. The packaging, while beautiful, seems very cheap upon closer inspection, especially the spray pump. The scent doesn't last on me at all. I can't smell it on skin or clothing half an hour later. Also, now when I spray it all I can smell is tart lemon. Not sure if my sense of scent changed or if the perfume itself changed, but I don't like the smell of this perfume as much as I did the first time I sprayed it. For the price ($24) I could've gotten a higher quality fragrance.I would not repurchase.

Nice hair balm! I don't know that it does anything to add waves into my hair, but it makes my hair so soft, so shiny and so smooth when I used it like a leave in conditioner. It feels very lightweight and doesn't weigh down my fine hair or make it feel stiff or sticky. It's also good finishing balm to use for smoothing down frizz or making my hair a little more piece-y looking when I roughly work a dab of it into my ends.

Nice, basic SLS-free shampoo. It's very gentle, suds up beautifully for a SLS free shampoo, and leaves my hair clean and manageable. It smells nice too. I think the scent is supposed to be banana and coconut, but I smell bubblegum. What it does not do though is add any texture to my hair. Maybe it works better on people with more natural texture than I possess, but it doesn't do anything to enhance the slight wave I have in my hair naturally. I wasn't expecting it to completely change my hair texture or anything, but I had hoped it'd encourage the waves I have when my hair is damp to stick around instead of falling straight as my hair dries. Sadly no luck. For that reason I will likely not repurchase. It's a nice shampoo, but there are equally nice shampoos at lower price points.

Lovely! Pacifica's Before Dusk is a slightly-greyed, dusty shade of medium purple with a creme finish. It's not in-your-face but not quite conservative either. It's a pleasant and flattering color overall. Very wearable!Great formula too. Opaque in two coats and no problems with application or wear.I'd buy this one again.

Extremely realistic-smelling lilac. Literally, this is like stuffing your nose in a lilac bush. Lilac scents aren't very plentiful, so it's nice to find a lovely lilac perfume.I first discovered this scent in Whole Foods and I was so surprised by how good it was. I am thrilled that it doesn't contain any nasty ingredients like phthalates, parabens, etc. This smells very professional, feminine, and classy. I could see Audrey Hepburn wearing this- it's that lovely. Longevity is impressive and sillage is arms length. Enjoy!
