Pacifica Cocoa Rush Anti-Fatigue Mask Review:

Come with me and you’ll be in a world of pure imagination, we’ll begin with a spin, traveling in the world of Pacifica’s Cocoa Rush ($15) creation. What well see will defy explanation. Willy Wonka couldn’t have said better himself glamour babes.

If you’re a chocoholic like me, then you’ll want to get a taste (figuratively) of this anti-fatigue face mask Pacifica has whipped up in their factory. Your complexion has never looked sweeter.

What magical components are inside this 3 ounce tube of happiness?!

Why, isn’t it obvious? Cocoa of course! The antioxidant rich bean helps get rid of harmful free radicals and repairs skin to the way it once was-radiant!
Berry Happy Extract with Arctic Root: This combo of natural extracts combines super fruits, valued for their hydrating and antioxidant properties, and rhodiola rosea (arctic root).

Rhodiola rosea is an interesting plant ingredient that has been shown to promote the production of ß- endorphins, “the chemicals of happiness”, in the skin.

Coconut Water: We use coconut water in this formula as a hydrating carrier for beneficals.

Green Tea: A rich source of Epigallocatechin Gallate, or EGCG, regarded as one of the most powerful antioxidants available aside from cocoa.

Caffeine: A mild stimulant and when applied topically. It too is considered an antioxidant.

Put it all together and what do you get? A gorgeous, glowing happy face with hydration! At least that’s what I got out of it, lol.
Pacifica’s Cocoa Rush Anti-Fatigue Face Mask draws out the tired, dull, lifeless complexion right out of your skin and presents you with a new one. And it takes no time to do so.

First, apply a thick layer of this lightweight, creamy pudding onto clean skin. Simple enough right? Let it sit for 10 to 20 minutes. Enjoy the intoxicating scent of chocolate as you wait. Try not to lick the mask off. Rinse well or wipe away with a damp wash cloth, and say good-morning beautiful! How you doin? Lol. After washing away the pudding, my skin did look fab, but I felt a full nights rest helped in a big way as well. It looked much more energized, healthy, and awoken. Not to mention touchably soft, bright and hydrated. Look out world! My skin and I are ready to take on the tasks that lie ahead!

Take note that this doesn’t completely dry like a clay or mud mask. It stays slightly moist, hence the pudding texture.

You can grab your next chocolate fix at Ulta Beauty boys and girls. Just follow your nose! It is a 100% guilt free pleasure your skin is craving.

Stay beautiful! Xo.

Pacifica Future Youth Enzymatic Resurfacing Mask Review:

I foresee my skin’s future glamour babes, and it looks bright! Pacifica’s Future Youth Enzymatic Resurfacing Mask ($18 for a 1.5oz jar) is an instant solution for dull skin, and I am here to tell you all about it!

Formulated with all natural ingredients like Kale, Papain, and Kelp. This lovely lightweight, gelatinous gel mask helps remove and decongest surface debris, and dead skin, giving your complexion a revitalized, youthful glow.




Pacfica’s Resurfacing Mask acts like an intensive peel, minus the abrasion, time, and irritation. Ahhhhh, there’s nothing like a gentle quick fix when wanting a refreshed appearance overnight, and you will see results overnight, no exaggeration.

I used this mask before bed, and I could not believe my eyes the next morning. Glowing, flawless beautiful skin was what I saw before me as I gazed at my reflection in the mirror. Oh yea, it was indeed a skin transformation I needed and so desperately wanted.
I have quite a bit of acne scars, and I do get small whiteheads on the sides of my temples due to clogged pores because of my oily skin, leaving a slight bumpy texture and feel when I touch my face that drives me bonkers, I feel like a scaled reptile, lol. This grassy scented mask multi-tasks and takes care of it all. My skin is exfoliated, the texture is a lot smoother, pores are no longer congested, and I feel like a whole new person, lol.

You can use this mask all over or as a spot treatment. It can stay on the skin for as long as 20 minutes, and used as often as needed. I apply a thin layer of Pacifica’s Future Youth mask about three times a week all over, and I keep it on for 15 minutes at a time, and there has been no irritations or additional breakouts whatsoever.
This mask is said to be ideal for dry to normal skin, but I think it’s fantastic for oily skin too, which is the skin type I have. Everything gets sloughed away gently and effectively, bringing new life to my complexion. I love waking up to a healthy glow in the morning, it just makes my day a little more dazzling (Ding! Sparkle, sparkle).

Ulta is once again having a fabulous BOGO sale on Pacfica’s skincare in stores and online. So, now might be a good time to try this face mask if you haven’t already, and whatever else you love from Pacifica before this sale ends.

Ooooooo, I think its about that time to throw on this green machine of a mask, and shed a little light on my skin, it’s been awhile.

Stay beautiful! Xo.

Pacifica Hairvana Leave on Detangling Conditioner Review:


Has any of my glamour babes tried Pacifica’s Hairvana Leave on Detangling Conditioner ($14) yet?! No?! Well, you simply must dahlings, this strand quenching detangler is to die for and a hair care must have on your Ulta haul list!


What does this light weight, creamy, a little on the runny side, innovative detangling cream do?! I’ll tell you! Thanks to the coconut, agave, and rice protein infusion, it helps support flexibility, strengthens, balances, and gives hair a beautiful healthy shine. Not to mention, it aids in calming frizz and fly always without producing buildup.

 No joke, I haven’t washed my hair in three days (sorry, I know that sounds gross, I have oily hair and over washing produces more sebum), and the only build up I have going on is my dry shampoo. And best of all, it makes combing a breeze,Holla! My hair is of medium thickness and has a natural wavy texture, sadly, that part of my hair story is no longer true due to a color correction quite sometime ago, leaving some reminisces of that horrible day lingering through my mid lengths and ends, making those strands of mine beyond tangled after showering. Not anymore though, a nickel sized amount (super concentrated) of Pacifica’s sweet smelling coco-nutty tropical paradise leave in conditioner tames the fierce knotted beast, smoothing out those tangles in an instant! yea, I can easily say it’s nothing but smooth sailing from here on out (thumbs up!). As for the rest of the support system goin on with this treatment (taming frizz, and flyaways, strengthening, supports flexibility, etc…), my hair is supported greatly, my hair hasn’t felt the same in a long time and Pacifica’s Hairvana keeps my mane manageable and super healthy looking with a lot of bounce and flexibility. The next best thing about a color correction (sarcasm) is the after math of dry, angry fleece blanket strands my hair has produced through the mid-lengths and ends as a result of this fiasco. For those of you who currently have this problem or had, you really need to go out and pick up Pacfica’s Hairvana before you decide to pull a G.I. Jane and buzz it all off because of the look and feel of yo huir. Once you prep your hair with this leave in conditioner (I prefer applying wet, dry did nothing besides tame flyaways), hair is no longer an angry hot mess, it becomes soft, smooth, and tamable once more.


That round brush just smooths and shines it all out when creating the waviest, softest of tendrils or wanting a sleek and straight gorgeous blow dry, Hairvana is just magical, it’s a blessing in disguise! Pacifica’s Hairvana is great for dry, damaged hair, chemically treated hair, long hair, and curly hair or for anyone in need of a little TLC!
Stay beautiful! Xo.

Pacifica Coconut Milk Shave Whip Review:

Last weekends shopping trip to Ulta beauty for Pacifica’s new Coconut Milk shave Whip ($14) was indeed a funday glamour babes! Is there really a day when it isn’t fun to shop and scope out new beauty products?! I didn’t think so, lol.


Funny, when I saw Pacifica’s post on IG last Saturday that they were launching their new Shave cream, I’m sorry shave WHIPS, I was actually considering a change and giving up my usual, Kiss my Face Lavender shave cream to try a new one.

Coincidence??? I think so, or it could be that I have a crazy IG obsession, or maybe a little bit of both….hmmmmm…yea, we’ll go with that! It’s a little bit of both, lol.

Pacifica’s Shave Whip comes in three scents; Coconut Milk, Kale and Mint, and Sugared Flowers. How pretty is the packaging?!


I was attracted to them like bees are to honey, my eyes pinpointed those babies out in a heartbeat, and I immediately flew right over (buzzzzz…flutter, flutter, mine, mine, mine). These were sealed tight, so, I couldn’t just pop the top and smell all three scents before purchasing, rats! I am a huge coconut fan though, and anything with coconut in it got me loco in de cabeza! That being said, Coconut Milk had me at hello!
If you like pina coladas and getting caught in the rain, or simply putting the lime in the coconut, then this is your shave whip. This sweet beachy, delicious scented shave cream screams take me away to paradise! Lord, it smells so good (the scent is subtle, perfect for you sensitive sniffers), I wish I could drink it all up, sadly I cannot. The only parts of my body drinking this stuff up are the legs, underarms, and my delicate area, which will not be named, gotta keep it clean boys and goils, this is a clean, PG fun blog (wink).

If you are one of those people who like to work up a good lather before getting a smooth save in, this may not be the shave cream/whip for you.


Pacifica’s non-lathering rich Shave Whip has a lighter than air whipped, creamy moisturizing formula that gives you a super close shave, preventing razor drag (nicks), while the natural concoction (aloe, coconut water, vitamin E, white birch, kale, the works) of extracts help protect against irritation from ingrown hairs and razor bumps. Sounds pretty dope huh?!

Since Pacifica’s shave whip does not lather, you do need to use a good amount, but it spreads out quite nicely when applying to the area you are shaving. I use about a nickel size for each leg (thighs included), a penny size for the underarms, and for the bikini zone, a nice quarter sized squeezed gets the job done (two thumbs up!). I gotta say, all those natural ingredients kept my legs and other areas of the body silky smooth, and hydrated until the next time rolls around with the razor, keeping nicks, bumps, razor burns, ingrown hairs, and other skin irritations out of sight! I have used it three times so far in the last week and I love this Coconut Milk Shave Whip! My skin really feels great, and the hydration lasts all day long. Yes, it is a little pricey for a 5 oz tube, comparing to your run of the mill shave cream you can just pick up at any old drug store for about $5, but it’s well worth the money and Pacifica’s shave whip is cruelty free, vegan, and ALL NATURAL!!!!

Quality not quantity is what counts when taking proper care of your skin. Remember, your body is a temple and should be treated as such 🙂
Stay beautiful! Xo.
