Remember the old Calgon commercials of the 70’s and 80’s? The ones where women who have had just about enough put their heads in their hands, call out “Calgon take me away,” and end up in a luxurious bubble bath with no cares at all. I was a kid then, but I remember every time I watched one, I longed to take a bath.
Here are a couple classics to relive:
It’s been years since I’ve been called to the bath so strongly, but that completely changed over the weekend! On the last night of our trip, we were looking for something fun to do and my brilliant, beautiful sister-in-law said to me, “Hey, I saw a soap shop upstairs. Want to get some bubble bath and take it up to our rooms? We can finish off the night with a hot bath?” Y-E-S! Our adventure led us to LUSH, where we spent the next 40 minutes laughing, sampling, and smelling every lovely scent.
The LUSH staff were all super fun and helpful, which transformed our soap-shopping trip in to a truly luxurious experience. The company doesn’t test their products on animals, and I loved their cute sign of bunnies high-fiving:
I also loved their sweet gift wrap:
All in all, it was a fabulous mini-excursion that ended up like this: One Cherry Blossom Bath Melt and a splash of Bailey’s over ice.
Now that I’m home again, I’m asking Calgon to take me back. I don’t want to wait two more decades to make bath soap a priority! I did a little research, and there are at least two stores locally that offer the hope of the same luxury experience.
- Uncommon Scents (Located in the Meridian)
- Bath & Body Works (Which looks to have some lovely new products and sales happening right now)
