100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Pacifica Tuscan Blood Orange Body Wash, Body Butter & Perfume

Hi there! Today’s post is about Pacifica’s Blood Orange Body Wash, Body Butter & Perfume. These products were part of a gift set which I picked up for next to nothing (clearance). I’ve now tried these products, so let me tell you if they’re any good.

Let’s start with the body wash! I really liked this one. It lathered up nicely and it cleansed my skin well without being too harsh. I also liked the boozy blood orange fragrance.

The body butter is… well… not a body butter, but more of a lotion. The product’s also nowhere near as moisturising as it claims to be. However, the main issue is the “fragrance”! This body butter doesn’t smell as bad as Pacifica’s Indian Coconut Nectar body butter, but it still smells unclean (a mix of night sweats and candied oranges). We (my husband and I) use this body butter as a foot lotion!

I’ve already reviewed the perfume – and you can read the full review here. But to summarise my thoughts… this perfume isn’t a summer fragrance. It smells like a mix of oranges, strawberries, marmalade and a hint of carrot. I think it’s an autumn fragrance that would go well with pumpkin spice scented body products!

I don’t think I’ll be buying any of these products again. I do like the perfume, but I don’t love it. The body wash is nice, but it’s not nicer than the shower gels I can find in supermarkets or drugstores (or bargain stores).

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Pacifica Tuscan Blood Orange Perfume

Hi there! Today’s post is about Pacifica’s Tuscan Blood Orange Perfume. But before we get to the review, let me tell you a little about the brand! Pacifica is an Oregon-based company that specialises in vegan and cruelty-free beauty products.

Yes, all their products are vegan and cruelty-free! Pacifica started out with a number of fragrances, fragranced body products and candles. But now they also do nail polish, colour cosmetics, skin care and hair care. Great stuff!

Back to the fragrance! Pacifica’s Tuscan Blood Orange Perfume contains the following notes: blood orange, strawberry, raspberry, mandarin and sweet orange.

When I bought the fragrance, I thought I’d be getting a fresh, sunny and juicy summer orange fragrance. However, the fragrance isn’t a pure orange fragrance. The strawberry note is quite strong, so it takes away from the freshness.

I would describe this fragrance as a sweet mix of orange, strawberries, marmalade and a hint of carrot. Tuscan Blood Orange is definitely an autumn fragrance, maybe even a Halloween or Thanksgiving fragrance!

Whilst I think that Tuscan Blood Orange is quite nice, I don’t love it, and I won’t be buying another full-size bottle. If you’re interested, Pacifica’s Tuscan Blood Orange Perfume is available as 29ml for about £20.

Brand Of The Month: Pacifica – 100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free

Hi there! I read a fantastic post about a Pacifica make-up palette on Vegan Needs a couple of days ago, so I thought it would be a good idea to check which of my Pacifica products look presentable enough to be photographed. 🙂 Here’s what I deemed to look good enough to show off:

Now on to my favourite Pacifica products: Fragrances! My love for Pacifica started to blossom when I discovered their wonderful fragrances about 5 or 6 years ago. At the moment I have at least 10 perfume sprays and roll-on perfumes; some of them are in the photo below.
