One of the best parts of any day for me is when I have the time to take a bath. Not a shower, not a quick dip in the tub, but a luxurious, relaxing soak in the bathtub. Today I’m excited to share all my favorite bath products with you!
I know the subject of baths can be controversial. Some people find them incredibly relaxing and rejuvenating, while to others the thought is disgusting. I fall on the former side and will defend them indefinitely.
I love a good bath. People that hate baths, are you really that dirty that you don’t want to sit in your own water? Come on, what gives? It’s warm and relaxing, I could stay in there for hours.
Taking a bath is such a relaxing and luxurious thing for me. It is one of the things I can do to help my anxiety and I’ve found ways to really make the experience so nice.
As someone who loves baths, I’ve curated a bit of a collection of bath products I love, which I thought I’d share with you today. All you bath naysayers, you can come back on Thursday and I’ll have more to share that’s non-bath related. Until then, enjoy your showers. :)
From my favorite bubble bath bar to the two bath tools that actually make sure the water stays in the tub (you bath-takers with older tubs know what I mean!), here are the nine things I always have ready. You just never know when the day is going to call for a bath.

My Favorite Bath Products
All the things that I use for treating myself to the perfect bath!
My MIL got me a couple of these for Mother's Day and they're so great. The have body wash infused inside them so you don't need any extra. It also lasts a really long time. I've tried a few different scents and don't really have a favorite!
By far my favorite bubble bar/bubble bath I've used, this smells soooo good. It's a mix of tangering and mandarin and it's citrus heaven. The nice thing about these bars is that you can easily break them up and get several uses out of them. My favorite time to stock up? The Boxing Day (day after Christmas) sale that Lush always has! You'e got to hit it early but it's so worth it!
I've mentioned this life-changing mask before and though I'm not certain it's pregnancy-safe, if you're not pregnancy, you need this in your life. This is my favorite, favorite mask I've ever used and one that I could actually feel working!
If you're going to be soaking in the tub you might as well treat your hair too! This is a great mask and I usually just put it on my hair starting below my ears (so my roots don't get oily so quickly!) Honey is also a great hair mask option!
This is less fun and more function but you'll be glad you have it. If you've got an older tub that seems to drain without you wanting it to, this is a must-have. Our drain is pretty awful but this stopper lets me have water in the tub! The next item too is another game-changer!
Not only was my bottom drain leaking, the overflow drain (where you open or close the drain) was also leaking terribly. Adding this cover lets you add inches more to your bath. I can actually be covered in water and it stays there until I open the drains.
Now, this might not be a must for everyone, but now that I'm pregnant there are a few bath rules I have to follow - mainly that the water can't be too hot. I've been using a meat thermometer (I know, I know) to check the temperature but this looks a little classier. Also great if you've got little ones and you want to make sure the water is right for them.
Love taking baths? Hate them? Tell me all your bath thoughts and if you have any favorite bath products to share!
