Shop Like You Give a Damn: Achieve a Higher State of Happy - Bliss

The Cosmetic Market’s newly opened Bliss Wax Bar located in the Hill Center.

How PUMPED was I to receive a special invitation for The Cosmetic Market’s Bliss Wax Bar’s Pamper & Preview Party?


Yes, being a broad with a big mouth does pay off at times and this was one exclusive occasion. I’ve been a Bliss product junkie for years and have even indulged with a few trips to their spas in Soho, Los Angeles, Chicago, and most recently, San Francisco. Trust me girls, their treatments are top-notch. May I suggest a Triple Action Facial with a No Zit Sherlock breakout-busting rubberizing mask the next time you’re in Bliss’s World? The Ginger Rub massage is the stuff dreams are made of too.

My love affair with Bliss began a few years back when I came across this on their website:

Bliss does safety test all its products on willing 2-legged animals only for formula efficacy and skin sensitivity to chemicals. Bliss and Laboratoire Remède do not test on animals.”

Unfortunately, good ol’ Nashville doesn’t currently have a Bliss World but never fear, The Cosmetic Market to the rescue! You can stock up from a wide assortment of products including some of my faves:

Fabulous Foaming Face Wash ($24)

It’s oil-free and gently exfoliates off dirt and makeup with soft beads!

 Blood Orange+White Pepper Sugar Scrub ($36)

Besides smelling mighty fine, the sunflower oil in this scrub leaves your skin feeling velvety.

During our visit, I was able to try out Bliss’s fresh perspective with the not-so-glam topic of hair removal and they, yet again, brought the heat!

You can opt to DIY with the same formula used in Bliss spas in these two stellar kits:

Option #1


Bliss Poetic Waxing Microwaveable Waxing Kit ($48)

Includes wax-filled cup (5.3 oz), super skin cleanser (1 oz), pre- and post-waxing oil (1 oz), 3 large spatulas, 3 small spatulas and one free ingrown eliminating pad sample.

Option #2

Poetic Waxing Starter Kit ($22)

This on-the-fly version of Bliss spa’s world-famous waxing services gets you hair-free with the ‘bare’ minimum of effort by using your own body heat!

Option #3

Sit back, relax, and let the pros help you get furry-free! Trust me when I say, that from the application of the Super Skin Cleanser to the chamomile infused pre-and-post waxing oil, the normally stressful process of hair-removal is quite nice and affordable too. Peep out their menu of services below:

Comment below on what your favorite Bliss product is and if you’re feeling chatty, a hair removal horror story too. Girl, don’t be shy…we all have one.

See you next Sustainable Sunday dolls!
