Hello, my loves!
Today I’m going to be reviewing a product which I have been using for two months straight. The product is the Pacifica Wake Up Beautiful Retinoid Cream. I bought this product at Target for 24 USD. I have been using the cream nonstop since I purchased it and will be going through an overview of the product and what I thought was beneficial or nothing to write home about.
So first, I noticed that the jar was a heavy glass one, instead of plastic. I also noticed the beautiful packaging which I and so many people enjoy. The product is labeled cruelty free and vegan and comes with 1.7 fl oz. or 50 ml. So quite a bit of product in my opinion and especially because you are only using it at night it comes with plenty . As I stated, I was able to use this product every night for two whole months.
The product is a a thick and rich cream that bears no real overwhelming scent. It smells a bit floral if anything. The product states on the jar that it has retinoid, melatonin, and mushrooms. I have used retinol before and it really did help with dry skin as well as combating aging. I feel like this has softened my skin and made it a little less dull and to be honest I wasn’t expecting any drastic changes.
I did not breakout almost at all with my use of the product but I did have some bad blemish days because of my time of the month.
Even though the product was very rich and moisturizing I did apply a thin layer of Ponds cold cream to get an extra surge of moisture.
These are some of the top ingredients and their purpose:
- Granactive Retinoid: Petroleum-free retinoid known for helping fight signs of aging, and found to be less irritating than traditional retinol.
- Melatonin: In your body, melatonin reminds your brain it’s time to sleep. On your skin, melatonin is a supercharged free-radical scavenger. One of the key ingredients in your fight against aging.
- Mushrooms: Promote hydration and help reduce puffiness.
- Quinoa: Loaded with antioxidants, which help fight free radicals, and high in lysine, which is an amino acid that helps promote collagen production.

Overall, I was very pleased with this product. For the amount of product I received for the price it was well spent I also really enjoyed the softening and brightening of my complexion. I would definitely repurchase this product and I may even try the eye cream that is in the same line. I am a fan of taking care of my skin every night and this was a beautiful cream to add to my self care.
I hope this gave you a little bit of insight on this Wake Up Beautiful Retinoid Cream and if you have any more questions feel free to leave a comment and I will gladly answer.
