I bought this online after researching lots of swatches. Unfortunately, this colour just does not work on my lips, making them look pale in a chalky kind of way and it's quite drying (though my lips tend to dry very easily). However, it smells of coconut, which I adore, and there was something about it that made me not want to give up on it just yet. So I used it as a blush and it worked really nicely! It's a sort of rose-toned hue and works almost like a blush-contour. It's the right kind of creaminess for cheeks spreads wonderfully. I remember the price being very reasonable. Packaging is nice, not flimsy and handy to pack on trips. I have even tried to use it as an eyeshadow which also worked fine but the hue is a bit too warm for my liking on my lids.

My previous experience with a Pacifica fragrance was the Spanish Amber spray, which I loved...and quickly ran out of. I would love to buy more but am currently broke and don't see that changing anytime soon.Something kind of strange happened to me with the onset of the cool months this year. I had so been looking forward to using my winter fragrances, wanting to break out the incense and spices. Then, when the cool weather began, all I wanted was to smell like I was on an island or at the beach. It feels like a craving to counteract the fall and winter with sun- and sea-related scents, and I just can't get enough of them. I had a really good Ulta coupon (n/a) and I like the Pacifica brand, so I bought the Tahitian Gardenia rollerball. Here's what the Pacifica website says about the perfume: "This heady, vintage-inspired blend showcases the sacred Gardenia bloom, a symbol of love, unity, grace and strength. It's sweet, smooth and slightly citrusy aroma is reminiscent of Jasmine, Sweet Orange and Tea Leaves." It's a pretty accurate description, and the fragrance is lovely. I wouldn't say striking or head-turning, but elegant and pretty. (I've been using this together with a generic coconut-scented oil that I have, and it makes a good combination.) The letdown is that I really like to smell my fragrance, and with this, you have to get close to the area where you applied it for that to occur--there's little to no sillage. Also, the scent seems to last a very short time on me. Fortunately, the box and rollerball are small, so you can easily carry them with you for a refresher. I've read reviews elsewhere saying that people had trouble getting the rollerball to work, but I had no problems with mine. I love that Pacifica is cruelty-free. Also, the prices for the rollerballs and the solid perfumes are good for the broke among us, and you can try out different fragrances without breaking the bank. I think almost anyone would like these items, but especially those who prefer subtler scents.

I bought this cleanser before I really developed an interest in reading about skincare and thus before I realized that coconut oil can be an acne trigger for those of us with sensitive and/or acne-prone skin. While my skin can be pretty resilient, this cleanser brought some uninvited guests to my face in the form of deep blind pimples. After two or three days of using this, I developed a couple painful cysts on my cheeks. But because this cleanser is all-natural, I naively thought that it was unlikely to be the source of this strange new breakout. So I kept using this cleanser every day, and each morning I would notice that I had new zits. I finally turned to google and realized that there was a good chance that the coconut oil in this cleanser is what was making me break out. So I stopped using this cleanser, switched to a different one that didn't have coconut oil in the ingredients, and immediately my zits receded. I'm still giving it two points because I'm just unlucky enough to have had a bad reaction. I actually really enjoy the smell of this cleanser. It reminds me of play-dough in the best way possible!Would not recommend if you're sensitive to coconut oil or if you're not quite sure how your skin will react to it.

My lips were having bad reactions to pretty much any brand of lip balm so I decided to give this one a try! Let me tell you...THIS SOLVED ALL MY PROBLEMS! My lips, no joke, were so dry they felt like leather, and were cracking and bleeding so bad. One day after using this moisture was restored in my lips and I could actually move them without them cracking. After my lips healed and I used this I got to see the true beauty this product offers. I don't like to wear lipstick on a daily basis but I also don't like how makeup looks without anything on the lip. This lip tint is the perfect way to add a little pop to your look without being overbearing. I purchased the color "sugared fig" and it looks great with every type of makeup look I've done so far! This is a great product! I would recommend it to anyone looking for a nice,subtle, and MOISTURIZING lip product!

This os one of my few go to mascaras. I love this and UD perversion. It is a nice basic mascara with no bells or whistles. Just a nice natural waterproof mascara. I plan on rebuying someday. I used my tube until it started to get dry and used up. It is more affordable than many other natural mascaras and urban decay perversion. It is going to stay a staple for me.
