Warm baths and showers are godsend when you want to get rid of your stress. And to keep your body clean, of course. With another work week in our midst, you know you’ll need that extra few minutes in the tub before you sleep.
Regardless if you want to play with bubbles like Margot Robbie in The Big Short or just stand under the shower, the relaxing part comes with the products you’ll use. Start tonight, get comfy in bed after, and wake up feeling refreshed the next day.
Designer Rajo Laurel’s vision for his bath essentials is to provide a stress-free and happy environment for the users. The Ginger & Lime Body Wash has a fresh citrusy scent and has antioxidant properties which will help relieve your stress. Available at select American Standard stores.
Create bubbles that smell like sweet pastries with this product from Bath & Body Works. Just pour your preferred amount in your bath tub and be surrounded by its fragrant notes of vanilla, sugar, jasmine, and white orchid. Available at Landmark Makati.
Made with lavender, bergamot, sweet orange, and geranium, this oil can transform your bath water into a fragrant veil you can soak in. You’ll come out feeling soothed and ready to curl up in bed. Available at Greenbelt 5.
These aromatic soaking salts will exude a distinct ylang ylang scent that’ll lift your mood. Simply add 1/4 of the bottle per bath and let the salt dissolve for a couple of minutes. It’s like creating an instant spa in your bathroom thanks to the detoxifying properties of the Himalayan pink salt crystals. Available on Sephora PH.
It’s important to scrub away those unwanted dead skin cells. The Soap & Glory Flake Away is made with shea butter, sweet almond oil, peach seed powder, sea salt, and sugar—all of which work as a smoothing body polish. Rub on the dry areas of your body and get softer skin after. Available on Calyxta.
No relaxing bath is complete without a colorful bath bomb. Soak Artisan’s Poison Berry Bath Bomb will add a pink-purple hue to your bath water. This gives off a tart berry scent, making you smell like tutti frutti when you get out. It also has coconut oil for added moisture. Available online.
