Hello everyone! Rachel and I are back with yet another skincare post collaboration. It’s no secret that bubble baths are the best, but now there even more products to choose from. Here are some our favorite bath time products to use during a long soak in a luxurious bath while you listen to music, read a good book, or even for meditation. We hope you enjoy these products and that they help you reach the ultimate relaxation state during bath time!

*Please note that the prices listed are at the time of their posting and most of these products can be found multiple retailers online and in store.

Rachel’s favorites

Yumeguri Hot Spring Bath Power

Amazon, $13.99

For those that can’t immediately travel to an onsen (like me), this bath powder gives a similar experience to an Japanese hot spring. After you’ve filled the tub, you add the powder in and the water becomes colored (different depending on which packet you use) and a pleasant aroma fills the air. It’s relaxing and comforting.

Lush Rainbow Fun Bar

Lush, $12.95 

This bath bar from Lush is my favorite bath product from the shop. It’s colorful and lots of fun! It’s easy to use, makes for a fun bubble bath, plus it’s long lasting. What I like most is that you don’t have to use a lot at a time in order to see the effects of it.

Aura Cacia, Aromatherapy Foam Bath, Relaxing Lavender

Aura Cacia, Aromatherapy Foam Bath, Relaxing Lavender

iHerb.com, $2.95 per pack

I never get tired of any Lavender scented bath products. This foam bath powder is incredibly relaxing during a bath and it helps me to release tension if I’m stressed out . It’s also good if for a bedtime bath!

Johnson’s Head-to-Toe Baby Wash

Target, $5.99 

Johnson’s baby wash is the classic definition of a bubble bath for me! I’ve been using this since I was a kid. I like that it’s good for sensitive skin and that scent is not overly intense, but calming. If you have allergies to bath products, this is good choice.

Da Bath Bom Fizzers: Cake Bomb

$4.99, Target

I think bath bombs with surprises inside are so much fun and they definitely bring out my inner child. This brand is on the cheaper side of these bath bombs since most cost $8. I love that there themed according to name and you don’t know what cute trinket you’ll get.

Treets Traditions Relaxing Chakras Bath Tea

$12.00, HSN

If you’re a tea fanatic like I am then, give this product a try! They are so calming and it makes the bath water smell so pleasant.  Just drop the bath tea and the water and let the magic happen. You get the most of out of this product with a longer bath.

Stephanie’s Favorites

Me! Bath bombs

Me! Bath® Cucumber Melon - Copy

$9.99, Target

These bath bombs are pretty nice (and the price isn’t so bad either!). For $9.99, you get 6 essential oil bath bombs. Using one works ok, or you can use two if you want more color to the water. They are very moisturizing, and essential oils provide a natural, relaxing aroma, great for the body and to calm down the mind.


Dr. Teal’s Lavender Soak & Sooth

Dr. Teal_s Lavender Soak & Sooth

Target, $4.89

Good for the muscles and skin, this is a great for winding down after a long day of work and exercise. I prefer the lavender, but there are some other great fragrances available. I also have tried some of the generic versions and they work pretty well, too.


Dr. Bronners’ Castile liquid soap

Dr. Bronners_ Castile Liquid Soap

Dr. Bronner/Target, $14.99-$17

I have used multiple scents of the Dr. Bronners castile soaps, and I love them all. I have diluted them in the bath, but usually use them for showering. This soap can really do it all though — the bottle isn’t exaggerating. It works as laundry detergent, floor cleaner and for many other things. But it’s still really gentle on the skin and the essential oils that give fragrance smell wonderful. Peppermint, lavender and almond are my favorites.


Village Naturals bath tea

Village Naturals Bath Tea - Copy

$4.97, Walmart

This comes in a few scents, but I love the lavender and chamomile bath tea from Village Naturals. It’s soothing to the skin, plus who doesn’t like taking a bath in an oversized cup of tea!


Fuji Green Tea Bath Tea,

Fuji Green Tea Bath Tea

$5, The Body Shop

This is another bath tea, but it comes in loose leaf form and is made up of salts and leaves. It was the first one I’d ever used and I fell in love with the concept. This one works with a strainer. It has a nice, light tea fragrance to help you relax and wind down after a long day.
