Bathe in Bliss

I love Bliss products. Plain and simple. I got hooked several years ago while staying at the W Hotel in Chicago, and after using the amazing products in my room, I wanted to dive body first into a world of bliss and promptly booked an appointment at the Bliss Spa. And it was indeed love at first sight.

As if the fragrance and feel of the Blood Orange + White Pepper range wasn't awesome enough - now Bliss has just introduced a new product in the line - soapy suds! Twice the amount. Half the price. No parabens. (For those who don't know - parabens are preservatives used in cosmetics and skincare. One scientific study reports that parabens were found in samples of breast tumors. While not entirely conclusive, this study has resulted in a call for further research. Nevertheless, this same study has fueled the belief that parabens in underarm deodorants or other cosmetics may migrate into breast tissue and contribute to the development of tumors. However, no causal link with cancer has ever been proven and so far there is no scientific evidence to support any link with any form of cancer. Some scientists believe that it may be correlated with breast cancer, based on a study by UK scientists in which preservative chemicals were found in samples of breast tumors. Their analysis of 20 breast tumors found high concentrations of parabens in 18 samples. What supports this argument is based on the ability of parabens to mimic the hormone estrogen, which is known to play a role in the development of breast cancers.)

This vibrantly scented liquid soap whips up a luxe lather that cleans and conditions for supremely soft skin. Use as a body wash to shake up your shower, or pour a bit into the bath for a more stimulating soak; either way, it’ll make routine foaming much more fabulous. Paraben free. 16 oz. US$18.

I've got it in my shower. Bathe in Bliss.
