    This $16 Bath Pillow Is Totally Extra But Also A Complete Game-Changer

    There's no going back.

    In these dark and troubling times, there are only a few sources of pure, unadulterated joy left for us to turn to — and, make no mistake, one of those sources is baths.


    So, what if I were to tell you that there's a secret to making bath time even more enjoyable? And that we've been turning a blind eye to the literally thousands of people who've been raving about it on Amazon this whole time?

    Repeat after me: the Gorilla Grip spa bath pillow.

    (Sorry, if you thought this was building up to a sex toy reveal.)

    This luxurious foam spa pillow has seven suction cups that cling to your tub to give your shoulders and neck some much-needed orthopedic support when you're kicking back. (No more readjusting your head every two minutes to find the right position.)

    Best of all? You don't even have to worry about whether your tub is the right size to accommodate this product — it'll truly fit any size tub, spa, or jacuzzi, as long as it's applied to a smooth, non-textured surface.

    Shall we check in on what some of its cult followers are saying about it now?,

    "This bath pillow is wonderful! I had the blow-up terry pillow and ditched it for this, and I am so glad I did. This pillow is extremely comfortable and the best pillow I have ever tried. It looks as though it would attach easily to any tub. My tub is curved, and there was no problem with it conforming to my tub. It stays put with no slippage. The suction cups hold very well." —Christina

    "My husband bought this for me because I LOVE taking baths; it's a nice way to relax and unwind after a long day...but I've recently had some health problems, which has caused me to lose a lot of weight, and taking baths has become excruciating. Due to the lack of extra cushion back there now, lying back on the porcelain tub was extremely painful on my spine/bones, and I had resigned to the fact that I wouldn't be taking baths anymore. But, GOOD NEWS, this pillow is a dream come true. I wish I always had this pillow. It's soooo comfortable! I could almost nap in the tub (but don't!) lol." —Amazon Customer

    One enthusiastic reviewer even reports that the pillow functions as a noise buffer when they rest their head against their jacuzzi, effectively muffling out the rumbling jets.

    "I like to listen to music when I use the jacuzzi. Usually the noise from the jets is too loud for me to enjoy my Kindle Fire even with earbuds. This pillow is great. It buffers the tub so that the noise from the jets is minimal. The pillow also cradles your head and neck in a very relaxing position in either a conventional bathtub or the jacuzzi. It allows you to anchor your body so that you don't have to float in the water." —Cartec

    You know who else really loves the Gorilla Grip pillow (much to the dismay of its human)? This lil' hairless cat with a holier-than-thou expression that kinda makes you question if *you're* the one at fault.

    "I loved this pillow. It was amazing to lay back and relax with a book in the bath without hurting my neck. Unfortunately my cats viciously attacked it and ripped it apart, but I really loved it while I had it. Would order again, and hide when not using." —Ming's Mongols Cattery

    And last thing before I waste any more of your precious time that could be used for drifting off in your new "work-in room": This thing is incredibly easy to clean!

    It's completely waterproof, so you don't have to worry about mold or mildew gathering on the pillow or under the suction cups! If your heart desires, you can easily remove the cups (gently one by one) for a deeper cleaning. That's it! No small print, whatsoever.

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (also available in a three-panel option, pictured below, for $20.99).
