Now that I live in a place where the beaches aren’t just piles of rocks being hit by massive waves, I need to step up my mermaid game. This summer I’ve actually went to a beach…in a bikini. During this time, my skin saw more sun than it ever did over the eight years of living in Washington (still slathered in sunscreen, of course). And it’s time to step up my mermaid game. And A Beautiful Life is here to support me after my epiphany.
Mermaid’s Kiss is a bath/body and fragrance line by A Beautiful Life Brands. It’s scented with notes of lime, pineapple and French cypress. This combo actually works really, really well together. This makes me happy because who would have thought there was still a combo of notes that work really well together that hasn’t been exhausted to heck and back yet?
Mermaid’s Kiss Shimmering Body Creme
This cream is like the perfect texture. It’s thick but “whipped”. It absorbs quickly while actually moisturizing. Living through the 90’s (and old enough to remember them), I admit that I was a bit spooked by the “shimmering” in the title. However, it, like the formula, is also perfect. The shimmer is so fine, so subtle that it actually looks natural. All the kids these days think they invented “strobing”. But, that was something we’ve been doing for a long time. Think of this cream like a “strobe cream” for the body. It makes my skin look flawless. I highly recommend it for pale, dull complexions like mine that for some reason, are seeing the light of day.
The scent of the cream is like pineapple with sprigs of evergreens. It’s scented but it’s not overpowering. It really is a nifty take on the usual “tropical fruits” fragrance.
Mermaid’s Kiss Sparkling Body Scrub
As you can see, this scrub looks dry. It’s salt and sugar with a little bit of natural oils. Once it gets on wet skin, the magic happens. It exfoliates and rinses off easily. If you want a wetter scrub, just mix a little bit of water with it. So much magic will happen. And not the sort of magic by evil sea witches, like good magic.
The fragrance of this one is stronger than that of the cream. But, it’s awesome. It’s like a juicy, realistic pineapple with a cypress mojito. Even David talks about how awesome this fragrance is. It’s unisex. And I’m telling you EVERYONE wants to be a mermaid. Even husbands.
Both retail for $24 each at A Beautiful Life. A perfume is also available.
