We love this time of year in the Bliss office – it’s the start of the season and new product time! There’s nothing we like more than getting our hands on something new to try out and smell so we can pass all this info on to our customers. I always like to have a good sniff of anything before I buy it, especially if it is going to be on my skin all day. The latest offering to land in our... View Article

The start of the season means lots of new products to learn about, and last week we were lucky enough to have the lovely Michael from California Tan come all the way from their HQ in Indianapolis, USA to give us some new product training. This is the second time Michael has been in to see us now, and this guy sure knows his stuff! Focussing very much on premium skincare ingredients and the latest tanning agents and trends, California Tan... View Article
Posted In Inside Bliss by CharlotteComments Off on Monday Morning ‘Bruise’
So picture it – Monday morning and I’m heading into Leeds on my way to a meeting to discuss the latest technology of sunless tanners. After encountering several pile ups and the odd traffic jam I’m running a little behind (probably only about 10 minutes but I hate being late). After parking my beloved car near our warehouse facility I’m fortunate enough to bump into John (an absolute legend and the longest-serving member of the warehouse team), who generously offers...

Posted In Inside Bliss by CatherineComments Off on The Great Bliss Bake Off 2013!
It’s rolling pins at the ready as we here at Bliss ‘bake’ this a year to remember…..we are about to launch our first annual ‘Great Bliss Bake Off’, inspired by our favourite telly programme of a very similar name. The show caused quite a ‘stir’ at Bliss Towers last year, and in anticipation of the new series we thought we’d have a go ourselves! Some of the team fancy themselves as amateur bakers, so they’ll be pitted against each other... View Article

Last week saw the landing of behemoth; a delivery of product so epic in proportions it has achieved legendary status here at Bliss. It has been unrivalled by any other in the history of Bliss deliveries and we have even started a new list in its honour, the Top Ten Biggest Bliss Deliveries Ever List (or the ‘TTBBDE’ list for short). Having worked here for over 7 years now, I’ve seen my fair share of consignment giants arriving in the warehouse (typically 5 minutes... View Article

. . . but if it had have ended, you all would have had one hell of a tan! Lots of exciting new products were launched at the start of the season, with black bronzing formulas seemingly more popular than ever. Here is a list of your top ten best-selling products for 2012 . . . The Accelerators 1. Fiesta Sun Key Lime Pie – I’d never heard of a Key Lime Pie before (I’m more of a Cornish pasty... View Article
Posted In Product News by MarkComments Off on Juliet: What’s in a name? Me: Everything!
We’re an excitable bunch at Bliss. We love being inspired and we hope to inspire right back. So I was totally thrilled to receive a sample – and a very special one at that – from Fiesta Sun for a new product they have just launched within their ‘Fruity Scentsations’ line called ‘Mango Melt’. Now it’s always wonderful to get a freebie (just one of the many perks I’m lucky enough to get in my job), but this sample was... View Article
Posted In Updates and need to knows... by BrendaComments 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
Posted In Updates and need to knows... by GemmaComments Off on It’s show time, folks!
With a whiff of nail polish and spray tan solution in the air, we embarked on our regular appearance at the Professional Beauty Show held at Manchester Central. This annual show is one of our favourites and we never fail to miss it; being held in Manchester it certainly appeals to our Northern souls! This year we took our new team members, Beau and Charlotte, along with us, and we also had a brand spanking new stand we couldn’t wait... View Article
Posted In Updates and need to knows... by ChrisComments Off on Yee-ha from Nashville!
I’ve just returned from the International Smart Tan Convention held in Nashville, Tennessee. The show is an annual event and one that I have been attending for over 16 years. The 3 day event combines a show floor, featuring the major sunbed manufacturers, UV lotion companies and a full educational seminar centre. It is usually the time when the lotion companies present all the new products for the coming season, and provides training and business seminars. The show also features... View Article
