This may sound weird, but I’m hooked on a moisturizer that brings back memories for me. If you’ve ever been to Walt Disney World or Disneyland and been on the ride called Soarin’ Over California, you’ll know what I’m talking about. In this attraction, riders sit in their seats and are lifted high into the air and go on a “journey” over California (which is really just sitting in front of an IMAX screen). In one scene of the ride, riders fly over orange groves, and Disney, being ever-so-creative, releases a citrusy scent into the ride, letting riders smell the sweet aroma of an actual California orange grove. The scent has stuck with me since I first rode the ride, and I never thought I could experience it outside of Disney World.
Well, imagine my shock and delight when I won a contest last summer and was given a free bottle of Bliss Blood Orange + White Pepper Soapy Suds Body Wash + Bubbling Bath ($18). Upon opening the bottle, I was awed by how much the wash smelled just like the scene in Soarin’ Over California. I made every member of my family smell it, as we go to Disney World way too often and have our most special family memories there. I love the scent so much that I’ve since ordered another bottle and moisturize daily with the Maximum Moisture Body Butter ($28) of the same scent. Both the body wash and the body butter come in huge bottles and are a great value for what they cost. The body butter makes my skin luxuriously soft. My only gripe, as other people have mentioned in online reviews, is that the scent I rave so much about does not last very long. If Bliss could come up with a way to make the scent last longer, these would, for sure, be my favorite beauty products ever.
