Lemon + Sage My Current Favorite Scent!

Last winter I started to use the Bliss Spa body butter on my dry chapped skin. It is the FIRST lotion I have ever been able to use with success! Throughout the summer I actually used the body butter as a shaving lotion, and didn’t have any irritation from the razor on my extremely sensitive skin!


  • Smells amazing -I have used White Pepper + Blood Orange as well as Lemon + Sage and they both smell like fresh cut fruit, I have been tempted to taste it!
  • Non-greasy. Yeah I know, all lotions make this claim, but this one actually follows through. It actually goes on and is dry immediately, which works great for me because I live in Canada and do NOT appreciate having moist skin in the chilled air! This is a body butter I use regularly on my entire body, on my hands after dishes and even on my face and lips when they are extra dry with no irritation or breakouts!
  • A little goes a long way
  • You can use a lot but still not feel greasy if you accidentally squeeze out too much
  • It comes out thick and melts in with a few quick rubs
  • The scent lingers, but not for too long and is not overwhelming -simply smells clean and doesn’t compete with perfume or other fragrances
  • Works as a shaving lotion – I use this on my legs and underarms before I shave and have no irritation, regular shaving creams or gels cause irritated and burning red bumps
  • Comes in several sizes and is great for the whole family
  • Companion products like shower gel and body wash in the same scents


  • It’s a bit pricey when you need a new one, but it definitely lasts long enough to make it worth the price (they do offer coupon codes and deals on sets if you sign up for their email)

I absolutely love Bliss body butter and it gets 5 bright shiny stars. I have some on my bedside table as well as in the bathroom and as the weather cools down one will be placed in my purse! It is awesome to not have to keep looking for that holy grail of lotions anymore and even more awesome to have skin that isn’t chapped and painful!

About a month ago I received these wipes in the mail as a sample. I really wanted to like them because they are inexpensive and are an Allure Best of Beauty award winner.

I don’t wear much for makeup, a CC+ Cream as my foundation, Bye Bye Undereyes as my all over concealer and brightener, and a lot of nude shadows with waterproof tightline mascara. All of my makeup is from IT Cosmetics, except for my favorite eyeliners, which are from Smashbox. I also have some drug store lip colors from NYC and a few eyeliners from Avon (you need Avon eyeliner in your life).

I was using Skinn cosmetics makeup removing wipes which were about a dollar a wipe through The Shopping Channel in Canada. They worked well, but they were a DOLLAR each which is crazy!

So when I finished up the Skinn wipes I opened up my sample of Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes, which claim to even remove waterproof mascara and are made for sensitive skin, I break out easily and have sensitive skin and a lot of allergies.

The pro’s:

  • No strong fragrance, they didn’t smell like anything really
  • They were very moist
  • They were super soft
  • They didn’t burn or sting my eyes
  • They did not cause me to break out
  • They are in fact hydrating as claimed
  • No residue left to wash off on lazy days

The Cons:

  • They did NOT remove my makeup -not my CC+, eyeshadow, lip color or concealer, in fact, the wipes looked clean when I was done using them
  • I ended up having to scrub to get any makeup off
  • I had to use more than one wipe each evening

Unfortunately, I will not be buying the Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes because they just don’t do what they say they are going to do. On no-makeup days my skin did feel refreshed and cleansed but for $8.27 for 25 wipes that don’t remove makeup it simply isn’t worth the price.

I am giving these Simple Facial Cleansing Wipes 2 stars because they were gentle and didn’t irritate my skin. It is really unfortunate because had they removed my makeup as promised I would have definitely purchased them!

ALL of this said, I would try their other cleansing products, maybe their formula is better when it isn’t in a wipe. I loved the fact that they didn’t break me out or anger my allergies. I will definitely keep an eye out for other products in this line and try them out.

Have you tried this brand? Was your experience the same as mine? What is your holy grail makeup remover!?
