Bliss Blood Orange + White Pepper Sugar Scrub

bliss blood orange and white pepper sugar scrubWe start each morning with a piece of chocolate and a fix of this skin-renewing, effervescent shower treat. Sugar granules (a natural source of exfoliating glycolic acid), partner with fruit extracts, glycerin, and vitamins a and e to deliver a thorough once-over. A word of warning: this scrub smells and feels so delicious that we almost went in for a lick..

Our passion for Bliss's Blood Orange + White Pepper Sugar Scrub is so strong that we were sure this body buff wouldn't compare, but we are pleased to report that (sometimes) we're wrong. The label instructed us to "apply before showering, then rinse" which maximized exfoliation and left a layer of moisture even after the rinse. The scent is hypnotic and sleep-inducing, the perfect gateway to a good sleep.

Bliss Fabulous Foaming Face Wash

Bliss Youth As We Know It Moisture Cream

bliss youth as we know it moisture creamEver watch butter melt on toast? That's the feeling of this antioxidant-rich cream sinking into every pore of your skin. We love the minimal grease (perfect for oily to mildly dry skin types) and the boldly effective nourishment that makes this splurge worth it.

Though skeptical about such a specific thing as a "lip cleanser" and slightly nervous about the potency of a "lip plumper" we gave the quick regimen a try: 1) Cleanser that foams on the lips, leaving a moisturizing residue 2) Coconut sugar polish that exfoliates the lips 3) Tingly peppermint Lip Plumper that amps volume ever so slightly and 4) Moisturizing, buttery soft lip balm that you'll want to apply again and again. While not for everyone, we weren't disappointed and felt this was quite a treat.

Bliss Fabulous Lotion and Eye Cream
