I am a HUGE bath connoisseur. If there is something available to me that is affordable and allows me to feel a sense of luxury within my own bathtub at home, I have tried it.
I am on a very tight budget so most of the things I use are not very expensive. A lot of the things I have tried have also come from family members and friends for birthday or Christmas gifts, which is a very thoughtful surprise!
I want to share with you my favorite relaxing bath products so you can try them at home to promote your own personal spa-like atmosphere for relaxation!

1. Bath Salts
This is the most obvious right next to a standard bubble bath product. Epsom salt has so many healing properties that are amazing for your body, they are a must-have! I have tried a dozen different brands of bath salts and can honestly say these here are among the very best due to the amazing quality of their aromatherapy scents. If you don’t already have bath salts in your bath goodies, I recommend trying these.
2. Bath Pillow
I know this might sound a little ridiculous, but if you don’t have a bath pillow and you enjoy taking baths on the reg, you are absolutely doing it wrong.
You HAVE to have one of these, and they are fairly inexpensive which is even better! There is nothing worse than trying to relax in a nice hot bath than getting out with a kinked/sore neck or a bruise on your head.
I hate making decisions and my friend had this bath pillow on her wedding registry so I just ordered 2. I was not disappointed, highly recommend.
3. Face Mask
Yes, gentlemen, this means you too! There is no discrimination when it comes to bath relaxation time and we all need a good facial peel every now and then. I am sharing this specific mask because I have a few friends who are in the beauty industry and they swear by this product!
They use this clay mixed with apple cider vinegar and they put their lives on it being one of the few masks that have ever made them actually feel a difference. I put this to the test, I was shocked that I agreed.
Now, I like a little aromatherapy with my face masks, so I add a few drops of lavender essential oil to my mask. If you’re unsure of which essential oils to get, I have a written on a review on the ones I use here.
4. Skin So Soft
This is an Avon product and I am not currently in connection with someone who sells it directly through Avon, but it is one of my bath must have’s so I have to add it to this list. This is a bath oil that will instantly provide your dry skin with all the moisture it needs. This is especially important for me in the winter months.
Less is more, don’t overdo it or you will come out feeling like a huge grease ball!!
5. Bath Caddy
It took me many years before finally taking the plunge and buying one of these. I thought “what is the point, I can just use the side of the tub for my drink like a normal person”.
I can honestly say I regret not having bought it years ago… it is perfect for reading on my tablet and also having my glass of wine or water set out in front of me. I also am super over the top and like to have snacks in the bathtub with me, so obviously this comes in very handy for that as well.
The candle spot on the caddy is just the cherry on top of this amazing addition to my bath relaxation time. I chose this caddy because it was the most affordable with the best reviews.
6. Rose Petals
I saved this one for last, but it is definitely my favorite. I have spent a lot of my young adult years single and I love to pamper myself! No one is buying me roses or laying them around the house with a trail to the bedroom, so I bring them to myself with these soap roses.
They are great because they are soap, so it’s not like you have to clean up any real rose mess after your done relaxing.
I hope these are things that you feel will help promote relaxation when you’re taking a bath. If you aren’t a bath person, maybe these added perks will turn you into one! They truly are my “me” time and my favorite way to wind down when I’m feeling stressed or just feel like I deserve some time to myself.
I would love to hear your favorite products to you use during your bath time! Please share them in the comments below!
