     Valentine’s Day is today and while not everyone will be snuggling up, googly-eyed, watching rom-coms with the love of their life (I’ll personally be hostessing until the wee hours of the night), everyone can treat themselves to a little self-love this time of year. For me, the ultimate form of this is sinking into a perfect-temperature, bubble bath. But during the love season, a simple bath just won’t do the trick. Thankfully, I’ve been able to try an array of products and have narrowed them down to the very best for your ideal, relaxing, bath. Strip down, slip in, and enjoy!                Lush Eggplant Bath Bomb: The eggplant emoji isn’t...exactly what it seems.  And neither is this bath bomb! It may have the appearance of a typical aubergine, but it’s an explosion of color and scent. It spreads blue and yellow and a light, comforting, aroma of bergamot to lift your spirits and energize you.                        Zoella Beauty Drench Me Bubbly Bath Soak: If you’ve ever been around me while I’m watching YouTube, you’ll probably have noticed that Zoella’s channel is my happy place. And her products are pretty great too! Thankfully, for the “bubble” part of a bubble bath, this soak is ideal. A little bit goes a long way. I just pour a stream under the running water and like magic, the tub fills with light, fluffy bubbles! It also boasts coconut water to hydrate while you relax!                     

       Zoella Beauty Lagoon Love Bath Milk: I’ve never tried a bath milk before and I’m so glad that I got the chance to try this one. It comes in a powder form in a cute little sachet. And thankfully, it has the same luxurious ingredients as the Drench Me Bubbly Bath Soak, so it’s hydrating and radiance-boosting as well.                   Lush Eve’s Cherry Lip Scrub: One of my all-time favorite products from Lush is their lip scrub. Over the years, I’ve tried Mint Julips, Sugar Plum Fairy, Santa’s, and now...the appropriately named Eve’s Cherry. The concept of these products is simple. They’re sugar scrubs to exfoliate your lips. I keep mine in the shower (or in this case, the bath) and use it DAILY. It will leave your lips feeling soft and smooth and ready for whatever bright red lipstick you have planned for the evening.

       Daily Concepts Daily Back Scrubber: For those hard-to-reach places, there’s no better bath accessory than a double-handled, soft (yet exfoliating), back scrubber. It even comes with a little suction cup bag that attaches to your bath or shower wall and holds the scrubber up!                     

     Lush Love Boat Bath Bomb: All aboard! This beautiful pink and blue bath bomb is the perfect first ingredient. It’s limited edition - just for this time of year! And it leaves behind a trail of color and an incredibly fresh lemon-orange scent.                     

     Lush American Cream Shower Gel: Strawberries and cream are a match made in Valentine’s Day heaven. A scent that takes me back to my childhood and the wonderful memories of Creme Savers. This is the perfect addition to the already fabulous bath lineup. It’s empowered by softening carrageenan extract and herbal clary sage that will leave you feeling moisturized and clean.                     

    

Pixi Beauty Collagen Plumping Mask: I’ve always been a fan of Pixi products. They’re extremely affordable, easily findable, and amazing! I wish I would have tried this mask in time for my Moisture Must-Haves post. It’s incredibly hydrating and keeps my skin feeling like it can bounce back from anything.

 

Pixi Beauty In-Shower Steam Facial: Because I keep most of my products on the side of my bathtub anyway, this In-Shower Steam Facial is perfect for me. I just squeeze a bit of the thick gel onto my fingertips and as I warm it up by rubbing it into my face, it turns into oil and cleanses.

 

In addition to the many beauty products that contribute to bathtime, I also find that the ultimate relaxation comes from doing something that takes you completely away from reality. For me, that’s a Netflix show or a good book! I also have a satin, lavender eye-mask that I heat up and place over my eyes for a few minutes of deep meditation. What about you? What are your go-tos for a relaxing sink?

Daily Concepts Daily Back Scrubber: For those hard-to-reach places, there’s no better bath accessory than a double-handled, soft (yet exfoliating), back scrubber. It even comes with a little suction cup bag that attaches to your bath or shower wall and holds the scrubber up!

STARSKIN Hollywood Hand Model Nourishing Double-Layer Hand Mask Gloves: A hand mask might seem a bit unnecessary, but this is AMAZING. I have horrible dry skin (again, see my post on Moisture Must-Haves) and this has saved my poor, cracked, fingers from suffering this winter. You need them for your perfect bath! Trust me.
