I don’t know about you, but it’s getting quite chilly here in Toronto. (Canada? Cold? You’ve gotta be kiddin’ me!) I know right – who would’ve thought! The drop in temperatures gives me that extra excuse to cozy up in the evenings and bundle myself up. The stress of Christmas shopping, cold air, and hectic social schedules can really catch up on a girl! All the better to take a bath…right?
Take a bath!
I absolutely love taking baths. I know some prefer showers but I think that taking a nice long soak can help relax muscles and sweat out some toxins. A nice smelling bath with candles, oils, a drink, and some Netflix – what’s not to love? (And yes, I bring my tablet in with me and set it on the side counter and binge watch Friends… Truly living on the edge!)My friends have even jokingly nicknamed me the bath queen – I’d happily sit in a bath all day if the water stayed warm and I didn’t get all pruny. I’ve tried tons of bath products and today I’ll be sharing some of my favourites with you. Hopefully you’ll be able to find some cool products to try out yourself, or gift to another bath lover!
A bath without some special products would just be plain boring – I always like to add bubble bath, bath oils, or bath bombs. Here are some of my favourite products…
Lush Bath Bombs…
Sex Bomb is an absolute fave – it’s purple with a rosy centre, and turns the water a milky purple. It’s a sensual smelling one, and has notes of jasmine, clary sage, ylang ylang, and soya milk. I discovered the Lord of Misrule bath bomb during Lush’s fall releases. Don’t let your eyes fool you – although green in its exterior, it turns the bath a soft wine colour! Lord of Misrule has a spicy herbal blend of patchouli and black pepper oil. (Pictured below.)
If you’re looking for a bath bomb that’ll turn the water into something from an anime, look no further! Big Blue transforms the water into a gorgeous cerulean shade, fragranced with lavender and lemon oil. Be warned, this one is a bit messy… It’ll release a ton of seaweed strips which can be a bit of a pain to clean out. Finally, the Sakura bath bomb calms the soul with a relaxing aura of jasmine and mimosa. It is fairly colourless, and causes the bath water to look cloudy.
I’ve reviewed a few Lush products in the past – you can read those here!
Bath Salts & Sweat Baths…
Bubbles, bubbles, bubbles!
Lush also makes some lovely bubbleroons (a macaron shaped bubble bar!) It kinda looks like a little butt. The rose jam bubbleroon is made up of two parts which can be divided and crumbled under running water. The result is a soft pink bath that smells like roses. I absolutely adore rose scented products, so this one of my all time favourites.
What are some of your favourite bath products? Make sure to let me know in the comments – I’m always looking for new products to try out!
Now if you’ll excuse me… Gotta take a bath! π
