Speaking of three shopping days left (see post below), Bliss is here to help those of you who’ve waited until the last minute to take care of everyone on your list. The venerable nationwide primping destination has virtual e-cards, so you can give the gift of spa—oxygen facial, enzyme peel, Brazilian bikini wax, full-body massage, etc.—without having to brave the lines that are now forming at insert-department-store-name-here. All your gift recipient needs to do to enjoy a host of services in person or to buy a bounty of products online is use the gift-card-redemption code sent in e-mail form. So, there you go. Cancel those afternoon shopping plans, throw away the MapQuest matrix you made to maximize time, click here, and exhale.

With Valentine’s Day on the horizon, there are a slew of beauty treatments, events, and limited-edition heart-shaped products on offer for your “he loves me, he loves me not (and who needs him anyway)” pleasure. A comprehensive slideshow will be coming your way next week listing all kinds of things with which to properly pamper yourself before a big night out—with or without a significant other. In the mean time, there’s this: For the entire month of February, Bliss is giving away a full-sized free bottle of its Love Handler anti-cellulite gel, with any purchase or spa treatment. Sure, it could add a little bit of insult to injury if this time of year typically gets you down. Then again, if you do end up drowning your sorrows in that pint of Häagen-Dazs, at least you’ll know that the energy-releasing amino acids in this clinically proven formula are topically tightening your waistline.
In one of the more clever inauguration-inspired events to take place this month, Bliss Spa is exploring the double entendre of our current president’s surname and offering 20 percent off its signature Brazilian bikini wax, as well as a selection of waxing and post-waxing products. Just enter the word “Bush” in your online shopping bag at checkout or simply print out the coupon above and bring it into a location near you. To make an appointment, call (877) TO-BLISS.
You can go ahead and mark this down on the “things to keep in your purse in case of a beauty emergency” list. Bliss has just debuted a 20-in-1 wonder balm, cleverly called Problem Salved, that promises a quick fix for chapping, chafing, unruly eyebrows, and other unsightly instances that might catch you off guard. The ultra-emollient stick is loaded with mango butter, kukui nut oil, and tea tree oil and also comes in handy for straightening an over-zealous eyeliner job, blending away bits of wandering mascara, and preventing blisters (when you simply must wear those Jil Sander patent flats despite the fact that they’ve created a few permanent scars on your heels). That’s six different uses, already tried and true. Fourteen to go.
