Speed Review: Bliss Grapefruit & Aloe Soapy Suds Body Wash


It's safe to say that I'm not a morning person, particularly at this time of year when I have to be practically dragged from my warm bed. A morning shower using an uplifting, zesty body wash makes it just about bearable so I'm always hunting out options which may help. I've recently been reaching for Bliss Grapefruit and Aloe Soapy Suds Body Wash, which I've been really enjoying.

Bliss is a strange brand. I always think of it as cool, effortless and timeless but it doesn't get a huge amount of love and attention in the blogging community, perhaps having been usurped by its more affordable & readily available (we won't go into their weird choice of an online shop via Amazon) "younger sister" brand, Soap & Glory.

On first impressions, I loved the packaging. The bold designs which Bliss incorporate always appeal to me and still seem relevant and modern all these years after the original launch. I was happy to have it on display in my shower and what's more, appreciated the functionality of the pump dispenser and also liked that the transparent plastic bottle meant it was easy to tell how much product was remaining.

Bliss Grapefruit & Aloe Soapy Suds Body Wash completely lives up to its name. I absolutely loved the scent which was fresh and perfectly captured the fragrance of the key ingredients without being sickly sweet or synthetic. The scent didn't linger on my skin following use so didn't interfere with other fragrances. Whilst I can't comment on the product as a bubble bath (I generally prefer the convenience of showers), I do feel that it delivers on the "Soapy Suds" name as well. Bliss Grapefruit & Aloe Soapy Suds Body Wash has a thick, jelly-like texture which meant that it was easy to control how much product was dispensed, avoiding wastage. Perhaps unsurprisingly (given the inclusion of SLS), I was able to work the gel into a creamy lather and this could probably be enhanced using a bath puff or sponge. Following use, my skin felt fresh and clean but I still needed to moisturise (as I tend to have to after using SLS containing products).

Bliss Grapefruit & Aloe Soapy Suds Body Wash was a real pleasure to use and made the routine of showering more enjoyable. At £16.50 for 475ml, it's not the cheapest shower gel but you do get a lot of product for your money and I'd recommend checking it out.
