19 Things That'll Make Bath Time Even Better

I'll have 10 "Jack Smellington" bath bombs. Thanks.

1. An over-the-drain protector for anyone with a pop-up drain that is a: the bane of their existence and b: constantly getting clogged. This can quickly be placed on top of the drain to trap gunk, plus can be easily removed and cleaned.

Promising review: "I've been very impressed! It's tall enough to fit easily over my pop-up drain and (even without suction cups) the weighted top keeps it in place. I have medium-length hair and seem to shed almost as much as my cat, but the drain protector catches it all and the hair is easily removed and tossed away. Best of all, the silicone doesn't hold onto mildew or mold. I have been able to spray and wipe away any grime with very little effort. It looks like this drain protector will last a very long time. This has been a very worthy purchase!"—Suneimi

Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in a pack of four and six).

2. A eucalyptus bundle for an easy (and foolproof) way to add a bit of aromatherapy to the otherwise boring ritual of showering. This one is even wrapped with natural twine so you can easily hang it from your shower head.

Get it from BotanicaFleur on Etsy for $8+ (available in four sizes).

3. A fizzy bath bomb that smells divine (we're green tea, honey, lavender, and chamomile) and looks worthy of a photo for the 'gram. Plus, it evolves from a storm cloud into a rainbow and I feel like that's the energy I'm really looking for in 2020. Transformation, my friends.

Promising review: "I received these as a gift from my daughter. Wow! The scents are heavenly and they were boxed well and wrapped exquisitely! I love the rainbow colors of this bath bomb, what a brilliant idea! These would make for perfect gifts." —Ali's World

Get a set of four from Amazon for $19.97.

4. A suction holder that ~mustache~ you an important question: Aren't you sick and tired of not having a proper spot for your razor!? This nifty tool keeps it stored, within arms reach, and out of water to prevent rust from forming prematurely.

Promising review: "This is both cute and functional. Holds the newer, larger razors in place perfectly. Bought it for my elderly dad who happens to have a mustache and he giggled when he saw it. Bonus!" —CB

Get it from Amazon for $15.99.

5. A vegan bath soak that enlists the help of organic bladderwrack seaweed to soothe your complexion. Treating your skin is as easy as one, two, lay down in the bath with a good book and preferably some wine.

Promising review: "The spa on a cruise I took earlier this year was trying to sell me a product like this for so much more. This product worked equally as well for a whole lot less. Home spa wins again!" —KRTA

Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

6. An exfoliating towel so you can tackle a word that strikes fear into your heart: Backne. This effectively removes layers of dead skin that would otherwise lead to scarring — reviewers swear by using this in combo with Mario Badescu botanical body soap to make their back all but invincible to breakouts.
