Blissoma Skincare Inaugurates New Sample Program for Fans

Wednesday Oct 26, 2011

ST. LOUIS, MO - Blissoma is offering a new way for fans to stay connected to the brand they trust for seriously natural and effective skincare and apothecary products. The Blissoma Product Review Program debuts November 1, 2011 to an eager, growing list of enthusiastic participants.

A Philosophy of Accessibility
Blissoma has always made it a high priority for new customers to physically experience the tangible ingredient difference in their products. The SOLUTIONS skincare collection launched in 2009 with Introductory Sets offered for just $25 for a limited time. Blissoma has also been a founding brand for Eco Emi, a monthly natural product sampling service and Eco Emi inclusion has offered thousands of Blissoma samples to curious customers.

Travel Skincare Sets were added in September 2011 to offer a great price point to try targeted skincare groupings. Now Blissoma adds another way for fans to directly experience and impact the evolution of the entire Blissoma collection.

The Product Review Program allows fans to join an applicant list for a chance to receive periodic disbursements of Deluxe size samples. Monthly drawings are planned for existing Blissoma products and new recipes in development. Applicants submit their full email and mailing information to the Product Review Program. Sampling sessions and drawing dates will be announced via Facebook and email. Reviewers will be selected at random from the applicant list and automatically sent their free sample along with instructions for how to submit feedback.

Reviews by You
Blissoma has always maintained uniquely personal relationships with clients. Julie, the herbal chemist and founder, offers personal consultations by email. Customers routinely rave about the helpful customer service. Clients drive many of the new product developments by request, making a beautiful symbiosis and a built-in demand for the supply of new products. That tradition will grow as recipes in development are included in the review program. For existing products, reviewers can also post feedback directly to and to let others in the Blissoma community know their thoughts.

The Product Review Program puts samples into the hands of bloggers, vloggers, and regular customers alike. One of the key objectives is removal of the financial and allergic risk from trying a new product. Through their dynamic interactions with Julie and one another Blissoma fans can find their optimal products and help each other achieve healthy beauty.

Awake Gets a New Beginning
The first product featured will be the newly updated Awake Morning Facial Moisture. Clients have long requested moisturizer options with lower scent levels. To serve more sensitive individuals the most recent batch of Awake has been altered to have just a trace of essential oil aroma.

50 Reviewers will be drawn on November 1, 2011 to receive 1/2 oz samples of the updated formula. If they successfully submit a review, participants can receive a 50% off coupon towards any one product on their next order.

To join the program the Blissoma Facebook page has a new "Review Blissoma Products" tab with a form to submit email and postal information. If a fan is already on the email list they can send postal information to for manual addition.

Blissoma skincare is available through the website,, and online as well as quality natural product retailers and estheticians. New recipes are always in development at the headquarters studio in St. Louis, MO.

Blissoma creates intelligent raw and active skincare, herbal therapies, and artisan perfumes. The SOLUTIONS organic skincare line debuted in 2009 and is known for its truly functional, elegant, and nutritive formulas.

Founder and formulator Julie Longyear is educated in art and chemistry, which informs her focus on distilling beauty, creativity, and function in every product. The Blissoma brand was introduced in 2005 and has evolved over the last 6 years to encompass a range of more than 50 products sold by over 200 retailers nationally and internationally.

The entire line eliminates petrochemical ingredients, synthetic colors and fragrances, ethoxylated ingredients, parabens, phenoxyethanol, and other synthetic preservatives. Many products are vegan and all products are certified Cruelty Free by the Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics/Leaping Bunny Logo program. Blissoma is an approved Whole Foods Premium Bodycare line.

The Irie Star studio is housed in a historic, 100 year old brick building in the regenerating neighborhood of Hyde Park. Longyear and family are actively rehabilitating the structure using green and historic construction methods, including rebuilding more than 20 original wooden windows by hand.
