The Bliss is in the journey.
Ahh…1996. What a time to be alive!
It was the year we were introduced to The Spice Girls, Oprah’s Book Club and the word “Google” (though it hadn’t yet become a verb.) And dare we say, most importantly - it was the year Bliss Spa opened its doors in New York City’s SoHo.
Bliss Spa SoHo - the spa that started it all.
From the beginning, it was obvious Bliss was different. It stood out amongst the rest as a reimagined spa experience with a side of quirk and personality. It was a spa that served brownies and brie instead of berries and delivered facial and body treatments that were destined to become legendary.
Oprah, JLo and Madonna were regular clients. Julia Roberts once told People magazine she had a hard time getting an appointment. It was the IT place, and became its own cultural moment.
Bliss Spa was featured on Sex And The City as a place that promised transformation.
On Oprah’s farewell show, she recalled her Bliss facial as “THE BEST FACIAL I EVER HAD.”
You get it.
Flash forward to 2022, we are now a B Corp Certified skincare brand and our goal is to bring that indulgent spa experience to everyone with clean, cruelty-free skincare and body care that is dermatologist tested and available at accessible prices.
So, put on a cozy robe, grab a brownie and let’s chat through some of the ultra-smoothing, nourishing and hydrating straight-from-the-spa favorites that we are still obsessed with more than 25 years later. Plus, meet our new ultra-indulgent Cloud 9 Body Lotion that will take you back to the luxe spa days!
Our Clean & Cruelty-Free Products
Lemon & Sage: this scent is synonymous with Bliss! Lemon & Sage Body Butter is the cult-fave product that has been used in Bliss Spa massages and body treatments for over two decades. The Lemon & Sage scent is a zesty, energizing blend of citrus notes, lemon & bergamot rounded out by a dash of clary sage & musk. Infused into our rich, quick-absorbing body butter that leaves even the most parched skin smooth, supple and supremely soft – it’s the ultimate energizing pick me up!
Love that spa facial glow? If yes, then this one’s for you. Inspired by thousands of Bliss Spa facials, That’s Incredi-peel is a 10% glycolic resurfacing peel. The 10% glycolic acid gradually releases overnight to smooth away dead surface cells and improve tone and texture in just 1 use. It works while you sleep to target fine lines, discoloration and imperfections overnight, so you wake up to smoother, brighter skin!
Ready to make your smooth? Micro Magic Microdermabrasion Scrub is a straight-from-the-spa facial scrub with volcanic pumice, aloe and refreshing peppermint to awaken your skin and your senses. It works to boost your cleansing routine by polishing away dull, dead cells, plus it rids skin of pore-polluting build-up for supremely clean, soft, renewed skin.
Wax like a pro with this Poetic Wax professional at-home waxing kit. The microwaveable wax is the same formula we use in the spa and features our iconic blue wax to make precise application a breeze. The professional-grade wax shrink-wraps each follicle to remove even the shortest, coarsest, most-stubborn hair. Poetic Waxing Kit makes easy hair removal anywhere from eyebrow arches to ankles quick and oh-so-easy.
And drumroll please…
