Naked Body Butter
Bliss sometimes gets it wrong when it comes to its body care products, but its Naked Body Butter most certainly gets it right—so much so that it's one of the brand's best products.
This body moisturizer comes in a generously-sized squeeze tube. Its dreamy-smooth texture is initially thick like a traditional body butter, but "warms up" to feel more soufflé-like in use. You'll find this glides smoothly across skin and sinks in quickly, setting to a non-greasy finish that immediately leaves skin feeling supple.
That supple feeling lasts all day as well, thanks to tried-and-true emollients like shea butter, coconut oil, and soybean oil. Other skin-conditioning ingredients like glycerin are in the mix as well, and unlike so many body moisturizers on the market, this one is 100% fragrance-free.
If you've been on the hunt for a body butter that soothes skin and doesn't offend your nose or budget (or irritate skin with heavy fragrance), this bargain-priced option is definitely worth your attention!
Note: The formla contains a small amount of arnica extract, a plant that poses a slight risk of irritating skin. However, we feel it's highly unlikely to be a problem here, especially because Bliss is using the extract rather than the stronger arnica oil.
- Souffl-like texture is easy to apply and smooth in to skin.

The story of Bliss starts in 1996, when personal trainer Marcia Kilgore opened a New York spa designed around no-fuss skin treatments and de-stressing regimens for busy lifestyles. Over time, clients asked for Bliss-branded skin care products, and so Bliss skin care was born.
Bliss enjoyed success for years, being sold in spas as well as online and at some brick-and-mortar retailers. Kilgore eventually sold Bliss, and after changing hands a couple more times, the brand began to lose some of its identity. Its most recent owners decided it was time for a back to our roots makeover, with lower prices across the board and a cleaner version of Bliss's iconic white with splashes of color packaging.
Bliss's biggest appeal is in providing people with a spa-like experience at home. The line features multiple masks, in addition to exfoliation treatments, moisturizers, and body care products for a variety of skin types and concerns. While there are some missteps in the line (including fragranced products and some instances of jar packaging), there are some gems to be found among Bliss's offerings you just have to know where to look.
