I’ve been waiting for this moment babes! Pacifica has finally launched a skin care line for oily and combination skin types, among many other new arrivals, and I went to Target to check it out!
Soooooo much product to try, but I’m here for only two things-Pacifica’s Pineapple Cleanse Oil Slaying Face Wash ($10 for 5 fluid ounces) and Pineapple Quench Oil Free Water Serum ($12 for 1.7 fluid ounces). These babies were flying off the shelves during the sale last week and I wasn’t missing out.
Skin Synopsis: Extremely oily, sensitive, acne prone with slight cystic acne.
I was looking for something that I can use (more for night-time) in conjunction with my Benzoyl Face wash. Using it twice a day has been too harsh on my skin. It became very dry and new breakouts were forming. Yay! Fun. I was only rinsing my face with warm water and a wash cloth at night, but I didn’t feel clean enough. It still felt like I had a whole days worth of NYC grime polluting my face. Such a gross feeling.
Thank you Pacifica for creating a fine-apple of a product(s)! Your new line arrived at the perfect time. Please DO NOT discontinue it.
Pacifica Pineapple Cleanse Oil Slaying Face Wash
When your skin feels like an oil slick, we’ve got your back (actually, your face). Old oil, makeup, toxins and pollution can turn into free radicals that wreak havoc on your pretty face. Clean skin is your first defense in your skin care arsenal. This oil free gel- based cleanser contains tons of natural extracts (pineapple, papaya, and white tea) to get the job done right the first time without over-drying.
The formula has a gel like texture that is super lightweight and thin. It’s not thick whatsoever, and spreads nicely all over your face. It kind of reminds me of a gel cleansing balm in a tube since it barely lathers due to it being sulfate free. When adding a bit of water, the light pink gel will turn into a creamy white lather. It lathers better on the face than hands, lol.
I absolutely love this stuff. It has an incredible scent of pineapple, and gets your face squeaky clean while sloughing away excess oil in seconds. I absolutely love this stuff. Pacifica’s Pineapple Cleanse has been nothing but kind to my skin. It rejuvenates, hydrates, and gently cleanses my skin without over drying. Plus, no additional breakouts! That’s also the help of Pineapple Quench. We’re getting to her soon. After a long day of work, makeup, oil buildup, and toxins clogging up my pores this is just what I needed.
Now, after a good cleansing I like to prep my face before bedtime, and that is where Pacifica’s Pineapple Quench comes in.
Oily skin needs moisture too! This daily use water-light serum helps provide a burst of needed hydration. A magical oil-free combo of ingredients includes hyaluronic acid, pineapple extract, calendula, and aloe vera. A perfect prep for your favorite mattifying makeup. Plus it’s fresh and amazing, just like you!
This double acts as a prep & moisturizer. You can use it twice a day-AM and PM if you’d like, and as a primer over your favorite foundation or BB Cream to keep skin matte. As mentioned before, I only use the cleanser and quench for nighttime.
The formula is more like the Pineapple Cleanse than a water based serum in my opinion. It’s gel like texture is thin, lightweight, spreads evenly and easily, and absorbs into the skin nicely. The serum does feel a tad bit sticky once applied. Just give it a few seconds to work itself in before judging too quickly. Take it from me. I thought I was going to return it. Lol. I’m glad I didn’t. This little tube is awesome. A little goes a long way, so it should last awhile. Whatever oils I have left after cleansing, Pineapple Quench works its sweetness and sucks up the rest providing hydration through the night. My skin is glowing the next day with barely any slickness. It’s wonderful. If you have minor breakouts, this helps with them too. Hyaluronic Acid is known to help those suffering with acne. I have yet to find any new ones from forming. Knock on wood. Must be the hyaluronic acid doing its magic. Wink!
