Bliss has already mastered the refreshingly scented body butter category with its original lemon and sage scent, but now there's a whole new fragrance to fall head over heels for: the beauty brand's Grapefruit + Aloe Body Butter ($29). The uplifting notes are appropriately light for summertime, making this product a wonderful alternative to your regular fragrance. Plus, the nourishing benefits of vitamin E and coconut and soybean oils provide intense moisture without the heaviness or tacky feel. It's just what a sunburned body needs. You'll want to show off your skin in this Summer-perfect scent.
With all the swimming, beaching, and short-shorts wearing that you're doing this season, what better time to indulge in a little full-body bliss? As important as it is to exfoliate your face during warm weather, you shouldn't forget about the rest of your skin; creating a smooth canvas for shaving, moisturizing, and applying bronzer is key — and it'll only make your skin look that much more amazing in all your pretty Summer ensembles. There are tons of great body buffers out there, but to see three of the best skin-smoothing scrubs, just keep reading.
Most gift givers have nothing but good intentions in mind when choosing gifts for their loved ones. Unfortunately, and mainly due to their inherent nature, some gifts can come off as unintentionally insulting. Here are 10 beauty items you might want to think twice about — or put on your list for the ultimate passive-aggressive frenemy gift.
A nice splurge-y option: Bliss Spa's new Extreme Sports Massage ($145/60 min., $205/80 min.), which aims to send overworked muscles to a relaxed state. The massage starts with a warm parafango pack, moves into a deep tissue rubdown, and finishes with a perk-you-up gel. If you've made it through a marathon, don't forget your race number; show it off at any Bliss location (except) for DC, Boston, and Fort Lauderdale) and you'll receive a free Foot Patrol cream. After 26.2 miles of running, you'll need it.
If you have a valid student ID, and the new school year has you in need of a little beauty bliss, you're in luck. Now through the end of October, Bliss spas are giving students 20 percent off any service they offer, from facials to the well-beloved Poetic Waxing.You just have to sign up at the Bliss site, and then you can conveniently book your appointment online. If you're not currently enrolled, it almost makes you want to register for some college classes, doesn't it?
Secondly! For bikini-wax virgins, the spas (locations here) are offering 20 percent off your first bikini wax throughout April. If you're a waxing newbie, Bliss is a good place to test the waters. Their wax is gentle, doesn't stick to your skin, and makes hair removal much less stress than it might be. If you decide you want to try waxing, this is definitely not a bad way to start.
But wait, there's more! If you're not into deforestation, you can shave 15 percent off the prices of Bliss and Remede brand purchases through Jan. 10. Just use the code JAN110 at Blissworld.com and you'll score the discount.
[It's got a] really refreshing smell, which is why I picked it up in the first place. But, it doesn't really do anything and it leaves a slight film on the skin. The film goes away, but I still feel there are way better toners out there.
