Bliss - I Like Big 'Butter' and I Cannot Lie Set

Bliss World Spa is a New York based multi-channel spa and retail skincare company, founded by my fellow Canadian, Marcia Kilgore in 1996. The story goes that Ms. Kilgore started Bliss from her own student apartment where she personally preformed the now world-famous facial and body treatments using her friends as test subjects. Her personal struggle with skin imperfections inspired her to pursue a career in the skincare industry and help others with similar problems. The rest is history!
Today Bliss World Spa's are world renowned, with locations all over the world, signature treatment developments, luxury retailer demands, spa-inspired products and fans flocking to hoard some of their most popular items. With beauty awards lining their walls Bliss World Spa's are one of the top innovators in the cosmetic industry and they are now a household name.

One of the Bliss most popular releases would  have to be the signature scented Body Care lines, which includes - body, bath and hair products, all infused with the same fragrance. These include the Lemon+Sage, Blood Orange+White Pepper, Minty, Vanilla+Bergamot and Unscented. 

Bliss I like Big Butter & Cannot LieMy favorite Bliss scent infusion is definitively the Lemon+Sage version, which is surprising since this is not a fragrance that is expected from a girly girl like me. The combination of the lemon and "fresh sage" translates into a strong citrus-like scent that is so uplifting and crisp that I would almost label it as energizing and mood boosting. Its a perfect way to start your day each morning for a little "perk-up".

Bliss often has bundles, minis or general gift sets that allow you to try more of their products or stock up on your favorites, while spending less.
The I Like Big Butter and I Cannot Lie is an irresistible combination set of extra-large sizes of my regular Bliss body care products. The fact that its a value set definitively gives it some extra brownie points!

Lemon+Sage Body Butter (14 oz)
Lemon+Sage Soapy Suds (16 oz)

Bliss Description;
O-M-G, look at this bundle—it is SO big! This real ‘thick and juicy’ duo features hefty helpings of our legendary lemony moisture cream and liquid lather. So ladies (yeah), ladies (yeah), does your bod feel super-soft? Then turn around, squeeze it out, even Bliss Girls got to shout—baby got ‘bath’!

Lemon+Sage Body Butter Description;
Marvelously moisturizing, our famous, fabulous, fresh-citrus scented body butter is so incredibly effective that a single squeeze can make rough and scaly skin 'history'.

Lemon+Sage Soapy Suds Description;
This citrus-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

Bliss Lemon+Sage Body ButterThe Bliss Lemon+Sage Body Butter holds a special place in my heart because it was one of my first Bliss products I purchased myself  and basically my informal introduction to higher-end body products. Aside from the energizing scent the thing I love most about this "cream" is the fact that its texture is a lot lighter and creamier than the conventional body butter formulation. Its exactly that feature that makes this so much easier to work with for those dry days when I don't necessarily have too much extra time to wait around before getting dressed. It makes my skin silky smooth, lightly fragranced and comfortable all day long. I really can't find anything wrong with the Bliss formula and I really appreciate the convenient tube packaging.  

The Bliss Lemon+Sage Soapy Suds is multi-purpose body cleanser that preforms great as a body wash, bubble bath and even as simple bath soak. Its definitively one of the underrated products in the Bliss body collection but I think I could say that about the majority of body washes available in the beauty market today. My expectations of a body cleanser are quite simple - creamy lather with bubbles, no residue leftovers and a fragrance I can at least tolerate! The Lemon+Sage Soapy Suds fulfills all of those with the bonus perk of a fragrance that I love and find extremely uplifting especially during those groggy mornings when the get-up and go seems so difficult.
While I do really love the Soapy Suds, aside from the lovely fragrance I can's say that the formulation is all that different from all the other body washes I tried that were less expensive than the Bliss version. I am far from disappointed and I love using this in my morning shower but its definitively not a must have item for me.  

In conclusion I love the Bliss "I Love Big Butter And I Cannot Lie" Set because of the product combination, their performance and the value. However the star of this bundle is definitively the Lemon+Sage Body Butter ($10 to $35) and its something I would repurchase on its own for sure. The Lemon+Sage Soapy Suds ($21) while a joy to use is a bit underwhelming in comparison with its body butter counterpart. 
That said I would definitively get and use the Soapy Suds if I was to luck out and find  it in another gift or value set. 

The Bliss "I Love Big Butter and I Cannot Lie" set is often available at Blissworld and most Sephora stores. You can purchase the Lemon+Sage products individually as well at both locations.

Did anyone else try the Bliss Lemon+Sage products? What do you think about other Bliss products?
