Having a long and hot bath has to rate as one of the most supremely relaxing things that you can do in the comfort of your own home, and if you have the happy chance to have a bath in your home, then you should really be making the most of it. A long soak in the tub offers you the chance to get away from it all and to forget all of those stresses and worries of everyday life, and the only thing that could make this experience better are some truly decadent bath products.
Other countries have their steam rooms and saunas but here in the UK we love our bath time and that is reflected in the dizzying array of fantastic bath time products that are available anywhere and everywhere from supermarkets to dedicated beauty stores. And whether you like to save or splurge your money on beauty products, there are loads of bath time treats that will suit you to a tee. If you feel like you need to throw out those ancient bath pearls which don’t even smell anymore, then you’ve come to the right place since we’ve picked out some of our favourite bath time smellies that we think you’ll love.
If you want to drift away and feel as though you are getting a big warm hug from your bath, then you should pop out and get a bottle of Badedas which is an iconic bubble bath that has been on the go for years. Having recently expanded their range into a shower gel too, the scent of Badedas is simply sensational and is designed to help you to relax. With natural horse chestnut extract this scent is neither masculine nor feminine but is a decadently comforting one. You can get a small bottle (300ml) of this lovely and luxurious bubble bath for around £7 and it is readily available in larger supermarkets and chemists.
There is nothing quite like the slightly decadent fun of popping a bath bomb into your bath and watching it fizz and fill with your bath with colour and scent. And undoubtedly the place to get a lovely bath bomb from has to the natural beauty product shop Lush. They have got an incredible range of bath bombs available and even do special limited edition seasonal ones, but at the moment we love their Guardian of the Forest bath bomb with cypress and oakmoss which will have you dreaming of sun dappled forest clearings on peaceful afternoons. Get it from Lush for £4.25.
For a product from another natural company, then we recommend treating yourself to a bar of soap from the Body Shop where you’ll find some delightful scents. We particularly love the new addition to their range, this Almond milk & honey soothing cleansing bar which gently cleanses your skin and leaves it soft, silky and smooth. It is hypoallergenic and is kind to even the driest of skins, and at only £4 it is a steal!
