Good morning glamour babes and happy hump day! Today I decided to mix things up a bit and talk about skin care, preferably Pacifica’s Quinoa Sensitive Super Gentle Face Wash ($10) available at Ulta Beauty.
This is one of the newest face washes from the Pacifica skincare line and all I can is, it’s the BOMB ????!!! I’m going to give my readers a breakdown of my skin type, you ready for this? I hope so. It’s oily/sensitive, with a mild case of adult cystic acne. For those of you who have not had this type of acne, thank your lucky stars! It is uncomfortable and quite painful when these pimples begin to form, how I love living my teenage years through my adult hood, lol! Getting back to face wash, I use the Quinoa Sensitive (night time) in conjunction with Pacifica’s Kale Detox face wash (day time use, specifically helps with acne), and the combination has been working wonders.
My skin is horrifically oily, and the duo has cut oil production down immensely without robbing me blind of all my natural oils. I’m sure we all know that dry tight feeling after a good face cleansing, not with these though, my skin is soft and hydrated afterwards. For $10 there is a great amount of product in this 5oz tube, and a little goes a long way, I purchased my tube in March and its still a quarter of the way full, pretty impressive. Loaded with natural herbal extracts like Quinoa, Aloe, and Calendula,
these three help calm, cleanse, and balance skin gently yet effectively without over drying or aggravating the skin. Also, this trio of herbs have great anti-inflammatory properties which is excellent for acne prone skin! Hahhhzahhh! Seriously, when I tell you boys and gals how inflamed my skin becomes when my cystic acne decides to come by for a visit, it’s angry and agitated, what a greeting ?. This face wash seriously helps calm that nastiness down by a lot, no foolin, and cleans makeup away beautifully with no residue or greasy film, keeping my breakouts down to a minimum, and keeping away new ones from forming, take that! Unexpected company arriving on my face! The consistency of the product itself has a gelatinous texture, it almost feels slippery, and lathers nicely,
and omg! It smells like fruity pebbles, so please try to refrain yourself from trying to squeeze the contents of the bottle into your mouth, as good as it smells it sure doesn’t taste like the beloved cereal us kidults secretly love, lol. If you have been curious to try Pacifica’s Quinoa Sensitive Face Wash, I’m saying go for it! Apart from my awesome review of this stuff, it works for all skin types especially sensitive, is pretty darn affordable, it’s cruelty free, vegan, and is jam packed with all natural herbs and extracts to keep skin looking it’s best, while gently washing away toxins and pollution that our beautiful complexions come across everyday. Clean skin is happy skin! Stay beautiful, xo.
