Demo Eye-wear With Your Flashlight

November 27, 2018 10:19 am Published by Comments Off on Demo Eye-wear With Your Flashlight

Do you struggle with ways to get your salon guests to wear eye protection for every tanning session? Here’s a unique solution! When faced with a tanner who says, “I don’t wear eye protection”, pick up a small flashlight and say, “See this?  It’s a small flashlight.  Close your eyes.  Can you see the light through your lids?” The salon guest will squint; the light from a tiny flashlight held a few feet from the eyes is amazingly bright!

Product Review – Sunshot Tan & Beauty Drink

November 23, 2016 12:48 pm Published by Comments Off on Product Review – Sunshot Tan & Beauty Drink

Earlier this year I was lucky enough to attend a wedding in Italy. Being a glamorous affair I knew I needed to make sure my tan would be worthy of a Tuscan holiday. Being someone who seems to have not time for anything (and at this point resembled Caspar the ghost) I needed a base tan, quick! I have had previous success with the Sunshots so decided to return to the sun saviour drink to boost my none-existent tan. I... View Article

Legs….To tingle or not to tingle?

March 24, 2016 11:15 am Published by Comments Off on Legs….To tingle or not to tingle?

Last Sunday, I awoke to beautiful sunshine, birds chirping, daffodils sprouting and the joys of Spring in my step. I put on my head torch and mining gear and dug into the doldrums of my wardrobe in the hope of wearing something that didn’t resemble arctic mountaineering gear. I chose a nice blue swing dress to ease me into brighter clothing, looked in the mirror for a final inspection and…oh dear. I caught sight of my legs in the full... View Article

Dress Up Disaster

Here at Bliss, we like to think of ourselves as ‘ tanning experts’. We are always on hand to give advice and tips to customers and friends alike. It is therefore slightly embarrassing (but also a little amusing) when one of us makes a tanning faux pas, so for my blog this month I have decided to come clean and share my latest blunder… As I’m sure you’ve noticed, the sun is finally shining and we are all able to...

We love this time of year in the Bliss office – it’s the start of the season and new product time!

The latest offering to land in our... View Article

Protecting your peepers . . .

January 16, 2013 10:00 am Published by Comments Off on Protecting your peepers . . .

The importance of wearing eye protection during your session is essential, and it is estimated that 20% of tanners in the UK still do not protect their eyes. Eyewear protects the eyes from harmful UV light, and simply closing the eyelids does not fully protect the eyes against these rays. The short term risk is corneal burning and one of the long term risks includes damaged cataracts. Protecting the eyes could not be simpler or easier, and there are many... View Article
