Bliss is one of those brands I've heard so many good things about, but just never gotten around to try, so I was pretty excited when the Fabulous Foaming Face Wash, Pore Perfecting Facial Polish and the newly launched Peeling Groovy Facial Serum landed at my door step. 

First up is the Bliss Fabulous Foaming Face Wash which is a 2-in-1 cleanser and exfoliator. This cleanser is oil-free so it is the perfect choice for combination and blemish prone skin like mine. It contains rose hip extract, milk thistle, passion flower and chamomile that helps re-balance the skin, provide healing and antiseptic properties, calm and soothe the skin, all while retaining moisture or strip it from essential oils. The blue thin gel has a beautiful gentle fruity fragrance.

The Cleanser is intended to also be used as a makeup remover, but due to the exfoliating beads, I admit to preferring it as my second cleanser after all my makeup has been removed, as it gives my skin a more thorough and deep cleanse.

The actual exfoliating beads are every so tiny, and made from soft, round synthetic spheres, and you almost don't realise that they are there, which also means that they are so gentle on the skin - but once rinsed off, you can tell that they've worked their magic as the skin feels so incredibly soft and smooth.

I really enjoy using this cleanser, and the fact that it is so gentle that I can still use it daily, without irritating my skin.

Next up is the Bliss Peeling Groovy Facial Serum that promises to gently exfoliate the skin's texture while you sleep, reducing large pores, fine lines and dark sun spots, breakouts and other unevenness, making it brighter and more even.

The serum does not contain AHA's which are known to often irritate sensitive skin types, but rather it uses With moisture-magnetising amino acid exfoliators to gently exfoliate the skin, and it also contains Vitamin C to strengthens collagen, brightens, tightens, and lightens the skin, as well as diminish the appearance of fine lines.

The serum is can be used every night after you've cleansed your face, and hereafter you need to wait 3-5 minutes before applying your usual night cream.

The actual serum is rather thin, and just a few pumps is therefore more than sufficient for the full face as it spreads so easily too.

I have to admit having used stronger and more potent cosmeceutical products, so I was a little curious as to how this one would perform - but I was pleasantly surprised. After just a few uses, I started noticing my skin looking and feeling softer and smoother, and especially some recent darker marks from blemishes fading. I also noticed that my skin appeared to become less and less greasy and a few blemishes seemed to fade and vanish a lot quicker than they otherwise would have.

So while I admit to using an actual gritty facial exfoliator, there is no denying that a chemical one like this one, is equally efficient - as in a few short days it did start to make my skin softer and more refined and with a nice healthy glow. It also seems to be less greasy and simply clearer, and as a result, it also meant that I felt that my makeup not only applied easier, but it also stayed put for longer. And all while still being very gentle and not irritating the skin!

Finally, the Bliss Pore Perfecting Facial Polish, which contains micro-granules to gently polish the skin and buff away dead skin cells, cleaning deep down every pore to remove any excess oils, dirt and grime. Due to the tiny scrubbing particles, this scrub is very gentle, and hence suitable for all skin types. While being gentle, I however, still only recommend using it a few times a week to avoid over-exfoliation of the skin. And as promised, it does indeed leave the skin feeling clean, soft and smooth, and my skin does seem less greasy and more refined after use, without being irritated or left feeling dry. And as always once you've exfoliated the skin, it is looking healthier and more glowing.

All in all, I am really impressed with these two products from Bliss, and I certainly wouldn't mind checking out the rest of their range, including their hand and body products!
