Pacifica Rice Bright Cleansing Paste Review

Pacifica Rice Bright Cleansing Paste Review

Pacifica Rice Bright Cleansing Paste Review! Spoiler alert: I am amazed by how much I love this.

A month or so ago, I tried and wasn’t impressed with Pacifica’s Skin Revival Microdermabrasion Scrub – it just didn’t do anything at all for my skin the way other, better scrubs, like Acure Organics Brightening Facial Scrub with sea kelp, have.

Rosehip Oil Skincare Review + Tips

Rosehip oil for skin Radha Rosehip OilRosehip oil is a dry oil that penetrates to the deepest layers of the skin where it regenerates cells, increasing collagen production. (Note that rosehip oil and rosehip seed oil are the same thing; you’ll see it marketed under either name). It is rich in vitamin C, Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids, all of which are known to help heal scar tissue. It is also high in retinoic acid, which studies show reduces the appearance of wrinkles and brightens skin. Essentially, it’s anti-aging, healing, and brightening.
