    1. A jar of muscle ease bath salts made from Himalayan sea salt infused with eucalyptus, lime oil, and other extracts to soothe aches and help you relax.


    Promising review: "This bath salt works better than any massage. It’s relaxing and makes me feel so rested after sitting in a hot bath with this in the water." —Toni M.

    Get it from Lather for $18.

    Promising review: "This full-body bath pillow and mat is by far much MUCH more than what I ever expected it to be. The picture didn't do this product justice. The product was everything AND more. It's not cheap, and looks and feels much higher-end. I have a wonderful Jacuzzi tub however, being 5-foot 2 inches I can never just lay back and relax; as my feet are not long enough to touch the other end of the tub. I constantly slip and slide and struggle to keep my head above water. THIS product allowed me to relax and lay back without any effort. The suction cups on the reverse side are large and plentiful. I was able to lean back and relax and my back didn't hurt one bit. I have a bulging disk in my lower back and this bath pillow/mat allowed me to just de-stress and it was a breeze sitting up and getting out (no more slipping). The pillow and mat are thick and comfortable." —michelle

    Get it from Amazon for $45.97.

    3. A sturdy, adjustable bamboo bath caddy so you can read a book, watch a movie, or enjoy a glass of wine hands-free in the tub — the ultimate luxury.

I have a deep soaker-tub. Now that I have this drain cover, the water comes past my shoulders and up to my neck — and it doesn't run out! It's super easy to use, and stays in place. I'm in LOVE!" —Texas Girl

    Promising review: "It's a big and very nice rug, super-soft underfoot. Also, I like that it's pure white, not off-white like many other rugs. These are larger than what they look like in the photos on the website." —Raj

    12. A set of three adorable Disney-themed bath toys to make bath time more fun and memorable for your little ones., Amazon

    Promising review: "These are cute little bath squirters. If you want them to last longer, convert them to non-squirting toys by using hot glue to seal the holes. That will make them so they float and can be played with in the tub, but won’t mold on the inside, as squirting toys tend to do. They came in a little mesh bag." —Lindsey Jane

    Promising review: "This is a life-changer! I have a lot of hair, and I shed a lot... For years I have been clogging drains everywhere I go. It annoys me as much as the other people in my life. But, now I don't have to worry anymore, the TubShroom has effectively caught every hair and there are no more clogs in our tub!

    Promising review: "After sitting in front of a computer for eight hours a day, there is nothing better than soaking in a warm, relaxing bubble bath. I have been trying to find one that doesn't hurt my skin afterward and this is definitely it! It's so gentle and I can add my own essential oils depending on my mood. Thank you for making such a superior product, Alaffia!" —Christy

    Promising review: "This product saved my life. Okay, I am exaggerating a bit but not much. Most exfoliating products are too rough. I remember the days of the loofah and it made my skin red and scratched. This is a gentle exfoliating cloth and hangs to dry easily and doesn't get moldy. I use this scrubber faithfully." —CB

    Promising review: "Coolest freaking bath bomb ever!! I got the medium-sized and it’s huge! Filled the bath with tons of cool crystals and it's loaded with oils which made my skin super silky. The coolest thing though is the color it turns the water. It’s a super shimmery deep teal! Feels like you’re looking into the cosmos. Shipping was also very fast. I can’t wait to buy more of these and other products from this shop :)." —Danielle Prodromides

    Get it from La Bella Mi Marianna on Etsy for $12+ (available in 21 scents and four sizes).

    20. A coconut milk bath soak that'll feel heavenly to steep in, and help you get the baby soft skin you deserve.,

    Promising review: "I love this product! It's one of the best bath products I have purchased. It's a light coconut scent with a quickly dissolving powder texture. There is no residue and it doesn't clump up either in the jar. It makes the water silky soft and there is no drying effect on the skin. A little goes a long way. I have a super big tub and I put in two tablespoons; sometimes one. Either way, the product works well for me." —Stevie Wilson

    Get it from Amazon for $22+ (available in two sizes).

    21. And a shampoo brush scalp massager worth working into your bath time routine. It feels amaaaazing and will help you wind down even more while you soak, plus it just may help cut down dandruff and regrow hair!

    Promising review: "This thing feels so good. Initially bought this product because I was experiencing postpartum hair loss in mass amounts. Then I read that something so simple as massaging your scalp twice a day can help fix that! So I bought this nifty gadget. IT IS WAY BETTER THAN ANYTHING your hands can do! It feels like four people are massaging your head at the same time. The bristles are soft and firm. Almost sponge-like. Just know that it feels VERY GOOD. If you have any dandruff, this thing will take it out. Did it help with my hair re-growth? Possibly — I did this in combination with biotin and hair oil and I have a whole line of baby hair on my forehead. Even if this was not the sole reason for my hair growth, at least it feels good, and cleans my scalp super well." —Simplylovelyhome

    Get it from Amazon for $6.98+ (available in three colors).

    22. The Vnus Box – a Black-owned wellness and personal care box created specifically for women of color. It's packed with all-natural skincare products and affirmations, and it donates 20% of proceeds to nonprofit organizations that give back to the community.

    Promising review: "I wish I’d had this years ago! We've been keeping my daughter's bath toys in a plastic colander and this is essentially the same thing — but much more convenient! It comes with two optional dividers. I only used one, to separate her bottle of bath soap from the toys. The width is adjustable to your tub, which is great, as ours is narrow with sliding glass doors. The basket feels sturdy, and holds a lot of weight without a problem." —AJL

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    24. A refillable bottle of Bathing Culture body wash to help you soap up while you soak. It's made with organic ingredients like shea butter, aloe, and essential oils, and reviewers love it!

    Promising review: "I love this product not only for the uniquely fresh forest scent and gorgeous glass bottle but the quality and concentration of the soap, as well as the fact that it is not drying to my very dry skin! I highly recommended and it is well worth the price." —Jessica

    Get it from Bathing Culture for $35 (or subscribe and pay $30!).

    25. Dr. Teal's lavender, eucalyptus spearmint, and rosemary epsom salt bundle so you can feel like you're on a vacation right at home, and ease your muscles after long workouts. Why have one scented epsom when you have have all three?,

    Promising review: "Bought this to take on vacation because they had jetted tubs. Wow! I am not one to use stuff like this but this was a really great product. The smell is wonderful and it lasts for hours. Made the bathroom smell great too. Felt good after a long day playing on the beach. Make sure to use at least a cup to have a good smell and really feel it in your soaking." —ks2dice

    Get them from Amazon for $21.97+ (three bags of salts, available in two varieties).

    26. And a paraben- and cruelty-free home spa kit filled with everything you need to tune out the world and pamper yourself. This babe has lavender and jasmine bath oil, body butter, bubble bath, and more.

    Promising review: "The scent is just lovely — lavender and jasmine. The bath bombs are non-staining like others I have used that have heavy dyes used that stain the tub. I bought one for my daughter-in-law who really loved it! So I bought another for my best friend’s birthday. It has a small cosmetic bag included that is very nice. The bubble bath, shower gel, and so much more make this a pampering spa experience!!" —Yorkiemom

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99.

    May your next bath be a delight!
