ON TRIAL: Pacifica Perfumes Hand & Lotion Body Wipes


Let’s be frank about prettily scented lotion bottles. More often than not, we end up buying a bunch during the requisite semi-annual bath and beauty sale then we wait six months (or longer) for some imaginary apocalypse to actually open and enjoy them. The unlikelihood of them being used isn’t even the worst thing about them. It’s that if you do pop the top, you never quite get to use all of the product, a glob of the stuff inevitably ends up at the bottom of the bottle and refuses to come out no matter how hard I shake the plastic container upside down.

Pacfica Perfume helps you prevent a crazy pile up of products—and the bottom-of-the-bottle dance—with their ingenious Hand & Body Lotion Wipes ($6.99). Perfect to stash in the gym bag or yoga tote, this 30-piece pack of petroleum-free towelettes allows you to apply a quick slather of lotion without having to carry around a heavy bottle. The portability also means we don’t have to worry about lotion leaking from an unattended bottle laying around in our overheated cars.

The tantalizing Tuscan Blood Orange is a crowd-pleasing fave. Infused with Coconut Milk to moisten the skin, the pre-loaded hydrator is designed to keep skin smooth and plump and can be swiped over hands, legs, and even feet. After using, simply toss it away. For those who prefer eco-friendly options, you’ll appreciate knowing these are biodegradable and vegan.
