Every winter about this time, I start dreaming about springtime. I want to ditch the sweaters and the heavy corduroys, pull on shorts and a tank top, and sit in the sun. But then I look at my elbows and knees, my legs that haven’t seen a single UV ray in 6 months. (It’s gray up here in the winter, let me tell you.) At that point I know my skin needs some serious help before being exposed to the outdoors. I have just enough Irish blood in me to make that a scary pale image! I’ve been trying out Pacifica’s natural body butters lately, and my skin thinks they’re yummy. Spanish Amber and Avalon Juniper are such enticing scents that I often use them just to get a fragrant boost during an otherwise dull winter’s day.
Created in the same scents as Pacifica’s natural perfumes, these body butters are fragrant and thick while absorbing readily into the skin. One thing I always look for is a lotion’s ability to have a lasting effect; can it keep my skin soft for more than just an hour or two? Pacifica passes the test on this point. Also of note are the wonderful fragrances. They’re not overpowering, but they do manage to hold the scent on your skin for several hours. As with all the Pacifica products, I like that they have a wide array of scents to choose from, no matter your perfume preferences – from floral to woody, fruity to herbal. So far I haven’t met a Pacifica fragrance I didn’t like…
