Whoever invented citrus-scented body products…BLESS YOU.
I’ve been cruising the halls at Tabs the Cat Industries, LLC, HQ this week with a spring in my step and the scent of grapefruit on my skin from the new $33 Bliss Holiday Suds + Butter Set in Happy Aloe Days.
Yup…nothin’ like a little citrus and a gift set with a clever name to perk ya right up (Happy aloe days?? Like happy holidays? Get it? I’m easily amused…).
This limited edition three-piece set’s been my main shower squeeze since last week. It comes with a full-size 6.7-ounce bottle of Bliss Grapefruit + Aloe Body Butter, a full-size 16-ounce bottle of Grapefruit + Aloe Soapy Suds Body Wash and a matching pink bath poof.
(Pink bath poof… Good luck saying that one five times fast!)
I usually think of wearing light, refreshing grapefruit scents like this one more in spring and summer, but forget that! The colder months are when I actually need the reminder of warmer weather.
To my nose, Grapefruit + Aloe has a fresh, light grapefruit scent perfectly balanced between tart and sweet. I have very dry skin this time of year, particularly on my legs, and it usually gets progressively worse as the temperature drops, but this body wash and body butter are doing a great job keeping everything moisturized.
Lately, I’ve been sudsing off in the shower after my morning workout with the body wash, which gets all the sweat off without stripping my skin. I follow that up with the body butter, which sinks in quickly and moisturizes like whoa!
I suppose you could get this for a friend (the packaging’s super cute and ready to gift), but I vote for keeping this one for yourself.
Oh, and Bliss also offers two other “flavors” of the Suds + Butter sets if grapefruit isn’t your thing — Wishing You the Zest is scented with refreshing lemon and sage, and A Citrus Carol is an invigorating blood orange and white pepper.
You can find all three sets now for a limited time at Sephora, Macy’s, Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus stores and online.
