Pamper evenings with bliss


Seems like we are always go go go and personally have to schedule in some me time otherwise weeks can go by until I realise I haven't stopped. Normally I have a bath and a herbal tea on the go with Netflix on my iPad, a candle and a good smelling Lush bath product making the room smell delicious (loving Comforter at the moment). Quite often I'll apply a face mask or eye mask before I get in and lay in the bath while it works its magic. 

Whilst having one of those weeks were I just haven't had time to stop Birchbox contacted me and asking if I'd like to try out some *bliss products. Now being a lover of a good pamper (and in need of one) and just a skincare lover in general I jumped at the opportunity. 


My lovely box firstly contained the bliss gel-to-oil cleanser which they describe as "..the gel transforms into a lightweight, yet powerful cleansing oil that breaks down and melts away all traces of oil, impurities, and makeup. Skin is left with a gorgeous afterglow that feels completely clean, silky-smooth, and perfectly nourished." which I would totally agree with. It's heavenly when applying it after a long day. The cooling gel consistency instantly brakes down your make up and smears it all around your face (so you look like a very upset clown). It's pretty good at taking off my Benefit They're Real which is normally tough to remove. You can feel the transformation of the product as you massage it into the face as it turns into an oil. When removing the cleanser with a hot cloth your skin feels refreshed, smooth and super clean. 

Secondly (and the one of the two I was mostly excited to try) was the triple oxygen instant energizing eye masks meant to perk up your under eye area in just 15 minutes! bliss say they're effective because they " release 3 forms of glow-inducing oxygen to brighten, de-puff and hydrate the skin around the eye". Once the pads are completely soaked in the solution you pop them straight under your eyes and relax and wait. They are nice and cooling to help with any puffiness however there could be less solution as they were very much soaked they felt like they were sliding down my face so I laid down and closed my eyes every time I used them (any excuse to lay down). When removing the pads from under my eyes I felt instantly awake and refreshed. They are perfect to use before an event or special occasion as your getting ready as they definately perk you up, especially if you had a late night the day before. 

I've recently been in a state with my skin. Pores have been badly clogged and lots of impurities that I'm not normally prone to getting. This cleanser has actually helped that problem a lot and my bumpy skin seems to have got loads better and very few impurities and very close to saying my skin is back to normal!

In conclusion both of these products are products I would 100% re-purchase as they are products that good a very good job at what they say they'll do. The price tag might be a little high for some but honestly they both do a great job. The cleanser is gentle enough to use every day and the eye masks are a lovely treat on the odd day or evening when you really need a bit of an eye bright job. 

Have you tried anything from bliss before? Do you fancy trying these out?
