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).

Hi there! Today’s post is about some of Original Source’s fruitiest shower gels: Original Source Pink Grapefruit, Blood Orange Daily Scrub and Skin Quench Blackcurrant & Moringa Oil. These shower gels are perfect for summer because they’re fruity, juicy and truly refreshing. I think they’re absolutely fantastic and I’ll buy them all again. But let’s take a closer look…
I love all things grapefruit, so I was happy to see that Original Source finally did a Pink Grapefruit shower gel. It’s incredibly refreshing and it smells of juicy grapefruits. Yummy!
The new Blood Orange Daily Scrub is absolutely fantastic. It makes my skin feel really soft, and the fresh and zingy scent of this shower scrub is truly delightful. This is definitely going to become a new beauty staple for me.
The Blackcurrant & Moringa Oil shower gel was a very pleasant surprise after the other three skin quench shower gels left me disappointed. This Blackcurrant & Moringa shower gel contains moisturising oil beads that really work, and it smells like sun-drenched blackcurrants.
Original Source shower gels are approved by the Vegan Society. The skin quench shower gels and the scrubs are quite new and they’re £2.69 each, the regular shower gels are £2.20 each. However, if you shop around, you can find half price or BOGOF deals easily. At the moment the big four supermarkets, Wilko and the two big drugstores all have some kind of deal.
