Smell Like a Mermaid Cake


I don't know if you are aware of this, but I kind of have a thing for mermaids (I know, surprise, right?). So when I first heard of Mermaid Perfume, I was pretty much in love with the idea. I looked at pictures of the Mermaid line: the perfume spray, perfume oil, and candle. I thought it looked so pretty and I could only imagine how good it smelled. Then, when they released a shampoo and conditioner, I was even more intrigued. I wanted to smell like a mermaid! Well, the non-fishy version of course. I was delighted when Mermaid offered to send me something from their collection. Everything arrived nestled in pink packing peanuts. I had chosen the perfume, but they also surprised me with the shampoo and conditioner!


Of course I tried out the perfume spray as soon as I opened the box. I wasn't sure exactly what to expect, but I immediately loved it! It's a sweet, floral, feminine scent of orange blossoms, and to me it smells like spring and summer at the same time. It's light and not overpowering, and it doesn't fade quickly. It's completely different from any other perfume I've used. I think it's so lovely! The bottle is a very good size and I know it will last me quite a while. The packaging is so gorgeous, I'll keep the bottles once everything is gone.

I waited to try the hair products until after I had dyed my hair, to see if it would significantly fade my color. The shampoo smells amazing! It's like a mermaid baked a tropical coconut lemon angel food cake! After I washed my hair, I was seriously smelling my hair all day, and the next day too! I might've also made Jose and my mom smell my hair. I didn't have to use very much of the shampoo or conditioner for it to work, and it made my hair very silky, to the point where my coworker even commented that my hair looked softer. I didn't notice fading, and I only wash my hair once a week and it was still nice and soft by the end of the week.

The best thing about Mermaid is that the entire line is cruelty-free, and made from only the best ingredients! It's kind of comforting when you can recognize all of the ingredients, and they're things like hibiscus, geranium, and elderflower, instead of hard-to-pronounce chemicals. And the hair products are sulfate-free, which is the only kind of hair stuff I use. I'm so obsessed with the smell of the shampoo, I think Mermaid should come out with a body wash or soap! Or anything else really, their products are all clearly awesome! I'd love to try out the candle and the perfume oil, and I can't wait to see what they come up with next!

We took a day trip to the beach, even though you can't tell from these photos, but I promise, we walked down the pier, the light was just too harsh to take pictures. I wore my new favorite dress that only cost four dollars, and I love how it matches the beautiful Mermaid packaging. It was a fun day; we saw dolphins right off shore and I snapped a perfect shot of one jumping out of the ocean! Then we had cotton candy, and I discovered that the frozen yogurt place next to the pier has real Dole Whip! So we'll be going back there a lot. Hooray for beach days! I'm still holding onto summer with both hands, and I think the weather agrees with me.


Thank you Mermaid Perfume for working your mer-magic on me! Excuse me while I go smell my hair again...
