Filling up a hot bath after a long day at school or in the office is a great way to unwind and relax before bedtime, and there are tons of great bath products on the market that will help make your evening bath experience that much better. From bath oils to gels and salts (and everything in between), here are five of the best bath products that are guaranteed to melt the day’s stresses away.
1. Lush Bath Bombs
Lush bath bombs are available in all kinds of adorable shapes and colors, and they smell delicious. Lush even releases tons of limited edition bath bombs around the holidays on the off chance you ever get tired of their permanent collection. Plus, with the company’s commitment to supporting several animal and environmental causes, you can feel great about shopping there, too! If you’re not sure how to use a bath bomb, no worries – just pop one in after you’ve run your bath and wait for it to dissolve.
2. Essential Oils
Using essential oils in your bath can create a truly therapeutic experience like nothing else. Vanilla, lavender, and ylang ylang are a few of my personal favorites – they make you smell amazing, AND they make your skin feel super soft! You can find essential oils at your local wellness shop or vitamin store, but you can browse through the best selection at the cheapest prices online.
3. Philosophy Bath and Shower Gels
Philosophy sells its goodies at Sephora and various department stores, so it can be a little on the pricy side – but because their gels have a 3 in 1 shower gel, bubble bath, and shampoo formula, you’ll be able to use them more frequently than you would otherwise. And with scents like ‘Fresh Cream’, ‘Sweet Candied Apple’, and ‘Christmas Cookie’, you won’t be able to resist!
4. Burt’s Bees Therapeutic Bath Crystals
This product is an outstanding drugstore find; with eucalyptus oil as one of the active ingredients, these bath crystals are incredibly soothing. The product is pretty inexpensive and the jar will last you a while, so this one definitely won’t break your bank.
5. Lush Bubble Bars
Lush is the ultimate bath store, I had to mention it twice! To use a bubble bar, just hold it under hot running bath water and in no time the tub will fill up with fragrant bubbles.
P.S. If you want more use out of your bubble bar, break it in two and save the other half for your next soak session.
