I hope you all had a wonderful holiday! I am stoked that Christmas is over. It's my least favorite holiday of the whole year. Despite that, I had a great time with my husband and my family, even though we were crazy busy running around! Tis the season though right?
I am super excited to be reviewing more Pacifica products for you because you know how much I love Pacifica. Today I'm going to be reviewing one of their new scents, Sugared Amber Dreams, in a few different forms: roller-on perfume, body butter, and hand lotion.
Pacifica had 20% off your entire purchase AND free shipping. It was the perfect time to try this scent out that's been on my radar since it came out. The body butter and hand cream duo retail for $20, and the roller-on perfume is $12. With the sale, I got the duo for $16 and the roll-on for $9.60 and free shipping making my total $25.60! Yay!
The first thing I noticed about this, before even opening anything, was how awesome the packaging is. You could easily gift these without wrapping them or anything. They always have such pretty designs for their packaging, and I know it's superficial, but it's a really nice touch. The unicorns and rainbows are so fun and so adorable!
Let's start with the roll-on perfume.
I love that the unicorn design is on the roll-on perfume bottle as well as the box. How cute?! Anyway, I absolutely LOVE this scent. It is amazing! It reminds me of their Island Vanilla perfume, but sweeter. I can smell sugar and vanilla primarily, the amber comes through in the middle, and it has a slightly woody undertone to it as well, which balances nicely with the sweet top notes. Island Vanilla was my favorite scent by Pacifica until now, this one definitely takes the cake!
As for the roll-on itself, it's great for spot applications, like those pulse points, to really bring out the scent on your skin. I use it on my neck, my clavicle, my decolletage, between my cleavage, behind my earlobes, my wrists, and the inner arm cream of my elbows. The scent does last for awhile, but nowhere near as long as I wish it did. I love the scent so much I just want to smell it all day long! Overall, the longevity of it is good though.
Now for the body butter.
I have used Pacifica's body butter before in different scents, and like the others, it doesn't disappoint. Their body butter is so rich and luxurious, my skin is soft and smooth all day and night. I usually shower at night and apply it fresh out of the shower, and my skin is still soft when I come home from work the next day. The combination of shea and mango butters really do wonders for your skin. It also includes jojoba oil, kuikui nut oil, vitamin E, macadamia nut, and rose hip seed oil in addition to the shea, mango,and cocoa butters, and you have a winning combination of good for your skin ingredients. I use all over, except for my face. When you layer this with the roll-on perfume, the scent lasts longer than either do on their own.
Lastly, the hand lotion.
Like with the body butter, I have also uses Pacifica's hand cream before but in the Island Vanilla scent. I loved that one, and I love this one. It's not as thick as the body butter, but it's still pretty thick. This hand cream contains a moisturizing blend of safflower oil, shea butter, and almond oil. Even with how dry and cracked my hands can get, this stuff has never burned or cause any discomfort. It leaves my hands super smooth and also makes them smell delicious! It's the perfect size to keep in your bag, or in your drawer at work. My only issue is that I blew through this tube when I had the Island Vanilla pretty fast. I kept it at work and used it every time I washed my hands (which to be fair is a lot), and it was gone in like 2-3 weeks! I slightly prefer the body butter to this, but I really do like this hand lotion as well.
Overall, I highly recommend all 3 of these products! I'm even debating on getting the full size spray perfume of this because I love the scent so much! Ulta sells this scent and other Pacfica products in store, so if you have an Ulta close by you, you can get this in store without having to wait for shipping! They always have coupons too, like $3.50 off $10 or 20% off an item, or your entire purchase. Find yourself a coupon, and get to shopping!
