Between excess oil, sweat, dirt, and makeup, our faces collect quite a lot of nasty stuff that needs to be removed. Without proper cleansing, pores become clogged which leads to breakouts, pores appearing larger, and dull skin. Face wash is the most basic step in any skincare routine. Clean skin is the foundation necessary for effective skincare.
Face wash is essential, but it doesn’t have to be boring…
Delicious coconut scent…foamy bubbles…refreshing hydration. That’s what I call a good face wash experience! I’m describing my current go-to face wash, Pacifica Coconut Milk Cream to Foam Face Wash.

I’ve never been one to take the time to “double cleanse” so I look for face washes that will remove everything in one step. This face wash does a great job of removing all excess oil, sweat, and dirt from my combination skin.
It is very effective at removing makeup as well, but I would recommend using a separate eye makeup remover or another extremely mild cleanser on the eye area as this face wash will cause irritation if it gets into your eyes. I like to use baby shampoo to remove my eye makeup.
aqua, myristic acid, potassium hydroxide, palmitic acid, cocamidopropyl hydroxysultaine, glycerin, glycol distearate, cocoyl methyl glucamide, sodium methyl cocoyl taurate, benzyl alcohol, parfum (natural), cocos nucifera (coconut) fruit powder, sodium phytate, cocos nucifera (coconut) water, ethylhexylglycerin, tocopherol (vitamin E), sodium benzoate, sorbic acid, leuconostoc/radish root ferment filtrate, sodium chloride.
Overall, the ingredients in this face wash are very safe, effective, and gentle. The majority are cleansing agents or preservatives.
There are only two ingredients that seem likely to cause problems for some people:
- Myristic acid is a foam-building cleansing agent that can be drying to the skin
- I do not notice any drying from this face wash and it is intended for all skin types, but it could cause extra dryness for someone that already has very dry skin
- Parfum (natural) is added fragrance, but since the source is not disclosed, it is impossible to know if it is a harmful ingredient
Pacifica Coconut Milk Cream to Foam Face Wash does contain a few ingredients that are especially beneficial to the skin:
- Coconut fruit powder is a mild physical exfoliant that makes the skin feel soft
- Coconut water is moisturizing and nourishing
- Vitamin E is an antioxidant that also strengthens the skin barrier
As mentioned in the previous section, parfum (a.k.a. fragrance) is added to this face wash. For many people with sensitive skin, added fragrance is a big problem and should be avoided. That is the only reason I took away three points from this criterion. Those that do not have sensitive skin and enjoy coconut, will probably enjoy this product! I think it smells wonderful and beachy.
This face wash has a milky creamy texture. It feels smooth and moisturizing as it’s applied to the skin and lathers up quickly to be very bubbly. The foam feels refreshing and also makes the face wash more effective at removing all excess oil, makeup, etc.
Pacifica Coconut Milk Cream to Foam Face Wash is like a light airy dessert for your face! 😀
This face wash is an excellent bargain at only $10.00. There are face washes out there at slightly lower price points, but none of them that I have tried are as good as this one. Honestly, I don’t like spending too much money on my face wash since I prefer to spend more of my skincare budget on the steps that I apply after cleansing.
If you really like coconut…
Pacifica has many collections of products based on scents. There is a large coconut collection, so if you’re interested in the Pacifica Coconut Milk Cream to Foam Face Wash, you might also want to try some of Pacifica’s other coconut products!
There are a lot of really nice face washes out there, but Pacifica Coconut Milk Cream to Foam Face Wash is tough to beat. It’s such a pleasant product to use because of the scent and texture, but I also love how clean my skin feels after I use it.
This is a product that I would definitely recommend. It was originally recommended to me by my mom and now I’m happy to be sharing it here!
There will be many more Pacifica product reviews in the future here on IntegriBeauty. I wanted this one to be the first because I think it’s so important for everyone to have a good face wash.
Wishing you all good health and happiness,
