This is a lovely, juicy body butter that smells like real citrus. The formula is free of many bad things and chock full of many good ones. Of course, I am not a super expert on that. I do know that it's a dream to apply, absorbs readily into the skin without that synthetic-y, powdery feel that I hate so much, and does a good job of moisturizing for a while. My hands get really dry in the winter, too, and so far no cracks...The scent is potent but not crazy overpowering. It's just one of those things that is a nice pick me up in the office on a dreary cold day. I want to try more of the Pacifica scents!

I'm giving this a neutral rating just because although the ingredients are nice and it moisturizes nicely (nice buttery feel!) the scent is not strong enough. For a "scented" lotion it should smell a little more like the perfume it's meant to smell like. The scent is vague and doesn't really last on the skin a bit.

I got a smaller size of this to use as hand cream. I loveeeee the texture -- it's very moisturising and sinks in quickly. It's really nice.

The smell is EXTREMELY FRUITY, which I guess could be expected based on the name -- but to me it doesn't really smell like oranges. It sort of smells sugary, like gummy bears. I don't know if I'd want to use it on my whole body just based on that, even though on me it seems to quiet down pretty quickly. Regardless, I'd definitely buy another tube of this in another scent.

I got this in one of the $5 bins along with Hawaiian Body Guava while I was waiting in line at Sephora and am so glad I did. I took a lippie off because it is not a body butter like it says, but I think it makes a great hand lotion. The orange scent reminds me of Votivo Candle's Manderine Orange scent, a lively citrus fragrance. I love to keep it in my purse to use during the day and just love the scent when I put it on, a nice lifting fragrance. I have this in Coconut, which I'm not fond of, but this smells wonderful. Love it!

I have the large tube of this (8 fl oz). I bought this to match the perfume and because my mom was driving me nuts that she wanted it (lol). I'm pretty impressed with this product. The smell of it reminds me of when I went to Italy and had blood orange juice which I thought was the most amazing thing ever.

The texture is great. It sinks in very quickly and isn't sticky. Very moisturizing and light. It's definitely light enough to wear for the intense summers of southern California.

I like this a lot better than TBS body butters. I bought it at Sephora for $18. I only plan on buying it when its the F&F discount though as that is when I purchased it. This tube has lasted me a good while, too. Mom and I reach for this often.

Bonus: Its also vegan.

I got this for five bucks at Sephora. I always wanted to try the Pacifica line and I thought this was a good time to. I like this, but I'm not too impressed. It has the consistency of lotion, not a butter. Also the smell is too fake. I don't like the smell of artificial orange. I would not repurchase.

I really love the texture of this body butter. It is very moisturizing, yet it absorbs quickly and isn't at all greasy. I'm not so thrilled about the blood orange fragrance, however. It isn't bad, and I appreciate that it smells like real oranges instead of fake orange, like orange soda. It's just a very fruity fragrance, and I've rather outgrown fruity scents. Actually, I really prefer fragrance-free lotions and creams, but I love the formula of this product so much that I'd like to get it in a fragrance that I find more appealing.

I got this on special at Sephora for $5. It is a very pleasant scented citrus body butter. The butter is not overly rich so it isn't greasy. It absorbs well into the skin and leaves skin soft. The price really couldn't be beat for 5 ounces. This scent is great for spring/summer. It reminds me of the little candy I ate as a kid. The ones that were shaped like skeleton bones..I think the candy came in a coffin type packaging.
