Mio Skincare Liquid Yoga Bath Soak


I’ve been on a rather long blogger hiatus. Lots of reasons which are not particularly interesting but a big part of this has simply been that I'm super busy with work and family. So it seems fitting that my first product review of 2018 is  Mio Skincare’s Liquid Yoga Bath Soak A cruelty free, vegan bath product to help promote well being. Perfect.


Liquid Yoga claims to be your personal masseuse in a bottle; helping relax tight, stressed shoulders and soothing tired, achy bodies. This sounds pretty good and active ingredients such as Magnesium-rich Epsom salts and Arnica as well as essential oils all suggest they will help create a rather lovely bath. Importantly, it is Sodium Laureth Sulfate and Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) free.

What the heck does that mean? Well these two ingredients are probably in almost anything you have that makes bubbles in your home – go ahead check your shampoo, your bubble bath, your dishwashing liquid, your kitchen floor cleaner and your car shampoo. Weird, eh?. Plus it’s a well-known skin irritant linked to all kinds of not-so-nice things.



Liquid Yoga is totally free from parabens, petrolatum, colourants, xenoestrogens, PEGs and phthalates and Mio are committed to ensuring all of their products are cruelty free and this product is also vegan.
But what is the bath soak like I hear you ask? I’m pleased to report  Its absolutely gorgeous. Bright green in colour its smells wonderful. This is due to an incredible blend of essential oils and extracts, including Mentha Arvensis Leaf Oil, Citrus Lemon Peel Oil, Cypress Leaf Oil and Lavender, all chosen to help ease and relax muscles.
This is a soak so no bubbles, just beautifully scented water which doesn’t leave your skin greasy (a real bug bear of mine with other oil based soaks)
The Epsom Salts definitely left me feeling a lot more relaxed after a very long day which included hours of driving and the Andiroba Oil and Fig Extract softened up my craggy old skin really well.
Appearance wise the bottle is quite functional looking but with this product it really is all about the contents.



It’s called Liquid Yoga so was no doubt formulated to help yoginis unwind after a busy day of downward dogs but it’s actually perfect for anyone man, woman, beast (yes I bathed Dougal the Poogle in my used bath water and he liked it)
Mio have also created a guide for how to positiviely deal with workplace stress.
 I am someone who drinks a lot of coffee and does a lot of work at home and I think that is something Im not going to be able to change anytime soon. What I can do though is have a little bit of "me time" in the bath. Well 1 out of 3 isnt bad.


Liquid Yoga is available from Mio and can also be found in Boots, John Lewis and on Amazon.
