Pacifica Island Vanilla Holiday Wanderlust Collection

The Island Vanilla Holiday Wanderlust Collection ($28) features a Body Butter, Body Wash and a Perfume roll-On, all from Pacifica's best selling Island Vanilla line. The value set has full sizes of the Body Butter, Perfume roll-on and a Jumbo size of the Body Wash, packaged in a reusable gift box!

Island Vanilla is a warm, comforting scent with a slight hint of citrus. It isn't extremely sweet or cloying, which makes it a perfect scent for just about any time of the year. The Body Butter, is hydrating, non-greasy and fast absorbing, just like the other ones I've tried from Pacifica. It isn't heavy duty, so you may have to re-apply after a few hours. I love using Pacifica's Body Butters even in the summer as they don't tend to leave a film behind or feel heavy. 

The Body Wash is a gentle, non-drying, sulfate-free cleanser for all skin types. It lathers pretty well, but I somehow don't get the squeaky clean feel from this one. On the plus side, it is quite hydrating and doesn't strip skin of moisture. The vanilla scent is very luxurious and leaves your shower smelling great. I wish it lingered around for a bit more. As for the roll-on, I absolutely love the way it smells. I'm not too fond of roll-ons as such, but it is a great travel size and unlike many pure vanilla scents, this one isn't overpowering at all. There's a slight hint of citrus in the mix that keeps it from being too sweet. The scent isn't very long lasting, but when layered with the body butter, it lingers on for a much longer time! 

Overall, a great value and a lovely little treat for all you vanilla lovers out there! Pacifica has a lot of great scents to choose from and this is one of their warmer, richer scents that I am sure most people would love.
