LOLA x Pacifica’s Holiday Collab Features Condoms & Reusable Eye Masks

Particularly for us college students, becoming more sustainable is constantly on our minds — or, at least, it should be. But with budgeting concerns and the lack of ethical products out there, there’s only so much we can do. With the holiday season coming up, a lot of us will probably keep mindlessly buying products with unnecessary wrapping and packaging, increasing our carbon footprints at a time when, let’s face it, we really should be cutting down on waste

But if you’re like me, stressed about your level of sustainability this holiday season, or feeling guilty about not being anxious about it, you may want to sit down for this. As of today (Dec. 1), a new product bundle is on the market — and it’s not only perfect for the holidays, but it’ll also help you double down on decreasing your waste. This bundle includes beauty brand Pacifica’s eco-friendly Reusable Eye & Brow Masks, along with the Ultra Thin Latex Condoms from period and sexual wellness brand LOLA. As far as I’m concerned, that’s a match made in heaven, and a duo I know anyone in college could use this holiday season.

The bundle is called “That’s A Wrap,” and it aims to eliminate as much waste as possible. It’s especially fitting for the holidays, a time when people use way more gift wrapping than they should — because it all ends up in the trash anyway.

But before we get ahead of ourselves, let’s talk about the products. The Reusable Eye & Brow Masks from Pacifica are award-winning — so they work well at hydrating your skin and preventing wrinkles — and they’re perfect for the relaxing spa day we all deserve post-finals szn. Plus, once you’re done, all you do is give the masks a quick wash and voila: They’re ready for another use. What better way to treat yourself and spare the environment a bit of waste? 

And don’t forget about LOLA’s Ultra Thin Latex Condoms, the second product in this bundle. Let’s be honest: Most college students will need a condom or two at some point, so why not throw them in now? These are more than just your average drugstore condoms, too — they’re made with natural rubber latex, so they’re vegan and gluten-free. And if you’re skeptical, don’t worry! They’re gynecologist-approved, so they actually work — with LOLA’s satisfaction guarantee, these condoms are a safe bet.

If that isn’t enough, Pacifica and LOLA are two companies committed to making the beauty and wellness industries more sustainable and ethical — plus, they’re also female-founded. So, by choosing this bundle, you’re getting your hands on some awesome products you’ll use one time or another, reducing your carbon footprint, taking advantage of a deal, and supporting some cool companies — it’s a win-win. 

If this bundle isn’t your style, don’t worry! There are so many options for you to take advantage of this holiday season, from both Pacifica and LOLA. For one, try checking out Pacifica’s holiday sets, which are so cute, they don’t need any wrapping paper. The Face Wash Stars (Pacifica, $10) is my personal favorite.

There’s no better time than the present to invest in some wellness and self-care products — especially when they come in such a handy bundle — and prioritize the environment. If you’re not keen on gifting these, then hey, it’s just as worth it to buy them for yourself! Believe me, you’ll thank yourself when the time comes.
