It’s just a gentle green juice for the face that leaves that refreshing feeling. We suggest face gels with leafy greens, such as kale, spinach vitamins, green tea, that provide the skin a powerful, healthy boost.

These balls are definitely an integral part of any relaxing bubble bath. First, they are very nourishing as they are made of butter like cocoa, for example. Second, they are super scented, and this odor spreads throughout the entire room giving it an incredible delight. Usually, bombs turn the water some color, so that you imagine lying in the grass or blue waters of the ocean.

It’s the third item that can save your me-time from the hair-filled bath water. Women with long hair will love it for sure.

Bath-themed subscription boxes
It’s an all-in-one box with bathtub relaxation accessories for your ultimate bathing experience. Different brands offer different boxes, and we’re not going to promote them here. But traditionally, they include handcrafted items like scented candles, soaps, bath bombs, self-care products. Some put spiritual healing crystals and local teas in a tub as their monthly packaging. We have to admit that even the brand’s packages can lift the spirits significantly. How much love, care, and creativeness is put in there!

In a nutshell, you get a great value with a friendly price tag.
Waterproof phone case
Devices and relaxation in a hot tub are not compatible unless you want to watch a favorite TV show or listen to a favorite playlist stored on your mobile phone. In this case, a waterproof phone case is as necessary as any other accessory from our list. Any iPhone or Android phone fits really well in the case. The sound quality is as good as the speaker’s one, even if the phone is sealed in the case. If style matters to you, you can pick from 13 styles available. At least, when chilling out to the beats, you won’t be worrying that the device might fall into the water and get damaged.
Another factor that can ruin your bathing experience is a filthy tub. Seriously! When you’re about to take a bath, do all prep work quickly, step in, and feel like soaking in dirty water. It’s not a good start for a relaxing bubble bath. That’s why we added this to our list of must-have accessories for bath time. Clean the tub three times a week to make sure that nothing can ruin this intention every time you need to catch up on your me-time. Moreover, it’s recommended to clean the tubs post-bath as body oils also leave some taint.
