    Dove / Via instagram.com

    I usually hate the way exfoliants feel on my hands, but the texture of this wonderful product has made it possible for me to scrub away dead skin without cringing. I love using this right before I get out of the bath rather than in the shower — it feels more luxurious that way.

    Promising review: "Best smell and feel I've put on my skin in a year (strike that, probably ever). It's time to let myself enjoy the small things in life. Thank you, Dove." —KMRL

    Get it from Amazon for $5.94.

    2. Lavender epsom salt you can use to soothe both your muscles and your mental state.

    Dr. Teal's / Via instagram.com

    I would put my life on the line for Dr. Teal's lavender epsom salt. It is my go-to after a rough gym session on a stressful day. Its scent isn't overpowering — it's just enough to put my mind and body at ease.

    Promising review: "This stuff is great. It smells nice (not strong) and it makes my skin feel soft after a nice, long, hot, peaceful bath. My wife and I almost bought some overpriced hipster salts at a local market. When they surprised us with 'and we include this little bag for your salts so the frankincense and murr don't stop up your drain'... I quickly replied that we would pass on their salt, because our trusty old Dr. Teal's never gives us any problems and it isn't trying to be anything other than good stuff." —Don K

    Get it from Amazon for $4.79 (also available in packs of two or four and in 16 scents).

    3. A candle that replicates the sound of an actual wood fire while it burns, essential for creating a calming, spa-like ambiance in your bathroom.

    Amazon

    I have purchased many WoodWick Candles and they never disappoint me. They crackle as they burn, creating a super soothing atmosphere for any spa night activities.

    Promising review: "Beautiful bubbled glass jars, this is the most PURE smelling vanilla candle I have ever sniffed upon! 😌 When I opened it I was on a vanilla cloud. The lid is awesome, too. It does a very good job at keeping the candle smell contained. Use a candle snuffer to put it out. I’ll be buying this brand for a while!" —Sarah Buckley

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $19.88 (available in 15 scents).

    4. A sampler pack of eco-friendly products for either your body, face, or hair.

    Amazon

    Ethique's products are cruelty-free, eco-friendly, compostable, and TSA-friendly so you can pack them in case you want to take a bath while on vacation.

    Promising review: "So I’m not trying to go plastic-free. I was just looking for something that travels well and stumbled upon this. Never heard of solid shampoo or conditioner. Went down an Internet rabbit hole in my research and found this sample bundle. Total score! Used it tonight for the first time and I may be converted. I have short hair and wash maybe every 3–4 days with dry shampoo between. When I put the shampoo bar through my hair the first time, no lather. Rinsed and tried again. Lather!! My hair was dirty, so no big surprise. The conditioner really worked too! I’m so taken by this. I feel I may need to make this permanent. " —Jessica D

    Get a five-piece sampler from Amazon for $16.50+ (available in three various sets).

    5. A pair of bath bombs that'll reveal dazzling rings inside as they dissolve because nothing is more soothing than pretty new jewels.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    These bombs are AMAZING. Each one has a ring inside that varies in worth between $15 and $5,000 (!). If you like taking a gamble, this is the bath accessory for you.

    Promising review: "OK, most teen girls are pretty easy to shop for, but want to find two gifts in one? This was perfect for our teen who is too old for toys, doesn't need any makeup, and sure did not need any more clothes! She loved these bath bombs because she got to turn her bathroom into a spa. She loved the scent and how they fizzle in the bath as they dissolve and then the second gift magically appears in her bath and it's — SURPRISE — a ring in her size! No matter who you're shopping for this is a great idea that is not boring or overdone." —Leslie G

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $24.95 (available in sizes 6–9).

    6. An organic hygro bath towel so you can roll yourself up in a perfect burrito and procrastinate getting dressed for at least an hour after your bath.

    Macy's

    Promising review: "Really like the softness and absorbency of this towel. The sand/beige color will pair with navy, black, salmon, or teal towels and colors in a bathroom." —Pamela877

    Get it on sale from BuzzFeed's Goodful line, exclusively at Macy's for $13.98 (available in six colors).

    7. A gel face wash you'll quickly become obsessed with because it's basically a green juice for your face.

    Sephora

    I may be the only one, but I love washing my face right before I get out of the bath — it always leaves me feeling super refreshed. This face wash from Youth to the People has taken everyone's obsession with leafy greens to the next level. This superfood cleanser includes kale, green tea, and spinach vitamins that'll give your skin a seriously healthy boost. This product is vegan, cruelty-free, sulfate-free, and Clean at Sephora–approved.

    Get it from Amazon or Sephora for $36 (available in two sizes).

    8. A bathtub pillow to provide extra cushion for your neck and spine as you soak for hours Margot Tenenbaum–style.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Used it as soon as it came in. Perfect headrest for my tub. I’m 5’6” and it’s awkward resting in the tub. My head is cramped and not comfortable. This pillow is great. Very comfortable and gives me more time to relax in the tub. My neck hurt too much previously. Has a nice hook to hang up and dry. The packaging was very nicely done. Highly recommend this pillow. Great as a gift!!" —Theresa

    Get it from Amazon for $25.95.

    9. A rechargeable rotating electronic body brush for an efficient way to exfoliate your skin — you won't even have to get out of the tub!

    Walmart

    Promising review: "Easy to put together, easy to use, very convenient that it's rechargeable! Love that the handle extends so you can reach your whole back without asking someone to help you or pulling your arm out of the socket. Really amazed that it can be used wet or dry!" —happywifehappylife

    Get it from Walmart for $60.75.

    10. A lil' suction cup that'll prevent water from slowly going down the drain and ruining your much-needed hot bath.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "We just moved into a new home and the bathtubs are *SO* shallow. My soul was slowly being ripped to pieces while soaking in a measly 7" of water. Devastating! It will be a while until we can afford to remodel the bathrooms, so I needed to find an alternative solution before I cracked. This product seriously improved the quality of my life. It's a softer, malleable plastic than I originally thought, but convenient for different shaped tubs since it will mold easier. All I had to do to turn my nightmare tub into a dream was to run the suction cups under the faucet and snap the suction cups into place over the bath drain. It was so easy! I got an instant 5" more of water!! For $8?! I think yes!!! Crowds applauded and cried, it was beautiful. After each bath I remove the drain cover and hang it from my shower caddy to dry out." —Rachael

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99 (available in three colors).

    11. A rose hibiscus hydrating face mist for when you want a quick post-bath pick me up but you don't have time to douse yourself in an oil or cream.

    Herbivore Botanicals / Via instagram.com

    This sweet-smelling product has a base of organic coconut water and is infused with hibiscus flower petals. Not only will it make you feel fancy, but it's also paraben-, sulfate-, alcohol-, and cruelty-free!

    Promising review: "Smells faintly of roses and hydrates beautifully. I travel with it everywhere. The mist nozzle delivers the right amount without drenching your face. Love this and will be ordering again." —Hana Hawley

    Get it from Amazon for $16.

    12. A magical hair catcher that'll save your relationship and keep you from sitting in hair-filled bath water.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "No seriously — this is amazing. I have long hair and recently had a baby. It's a wonder I still have any hair based on the clumps I see falling out on a regular basis. This means the poor tub drain is getting clogged all the time, and we're spending ridiculous amounts of time trying to clear it out. I figured if this even worked to catch half of my hair then it would be worth its salt. Holy moly. When they say it catches every hair they aren't kidding. We clean it off about twice A WEEK! And when they say it's easy to clean, they are right again. A swipe with toilet paper and the hair blob comes right off. I've already told so many people about this product because I love it so much. Fantastic!!!" —sasamo

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95+ (available in five colors and in a pack of two).

    13. A deep conditioning mask to bring your hair back to life without exposing it to sulfates, silicone, or parabens as you soak.

    Amazon

    "Don't Despair, Repair" is additive- and cruelty-free — it does not include harsh sulfates, silicones, phthalates, parabens, DEA, or artificial dyes. What it does include is natural oils such as rose hip oil, almond oil, and argan oil.

    Promising review: "The Briogeo Don't Despair, Repair really does repair dry damaged breaking hair. It's a little pricey for a hair product but worth EVERY SINGLE PENNY. The folks at Briogeo have created the perfect product for women with textured hair that tends to be dry and damaged. After a summer of swimming and sweating my little girl's hair was fuzzy, dry, and tangled, and she would cry every time I brushed her hair. Using the Don't Despair mask completely cured her fuzzy hair issues after just one treatment. Subsequent treatments got her 'first day of school' ready with her big beautiful natural bouncy hair." —MrsAimeeC

    Get it from Amazon for $21.86.

    14. A luxurious chenille bathroom rug, because there is nothing more terrifying than trying to tip-toe your way out of the tub to avoid slipping on a tile floor.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I wanted a bathroom rug that didn’t slip around, was soft, and that my Roomba could vacuum instead of just dragging and pushing it around. And if it kept my husband’s long hair on his side of the bathroom, even better. This is it! Bonus: it’s machine-washable! Can’t beat the value for the money." —S. Lee

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in five sizes and 21 styles).

    Amazon

    Over 2,000 people have given this a five-star rating on Amazon!

    Promising review: "I purchased these bath bombs because I was looking for an alternative to Lush. I'm a school teacher, I need relaxation without the price tag of around $7 a bomb! I was very excited to see that these bombs are handmade in the United States. They also are made of ingredients that are familiar to me. I ordered with Prime so they arrived in two days, as promised. The packaging is very simple. The bombs were well protected during their journey. None of mine felt broken. I could smell them through the box! Very strong, yet awesome, scents. They have a small sticker with the names of each bomb on the individual wrappers. I tried 'Fun on the Beach' first. My entire bathroom smells amazing! My water is a hot pink/purple color. The bomb took about two minutes to dissolve entirely. I am so excited to try them all! —Kelsea McKinzie

    Get it from Amazon for $24.80.

    16. Disco lights for your bathtub, so you can have a dance party while soaking in a sea of bubbles.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I'm 40 and our rough Chicago winters wreak havoc with my combination skin. I have used hundreds of masks from Target and Ulta. I never noticed a slightest difference. I bought this pack on an impulse. Omg! The Koreans sure know what works! I got these quickly and all 16 masks are different. The first night I used the herbal one. I read the ingredients and the mask smelled exactly like what it said it was. I could feel it working and when I took it off the effect was instant. My skin was literally flawless and not just for five minutes! It stayed tight and moisturized all day. I love these masks even though they're quite messy to apply. Ordered more. At this price and effect this'll product is a steal!" —PaulP

    19. A set of Pokémon bath bombs you'll continue to order over and over again to try to "catch em' all."

    Amazon

    On Amazon these bombs are marketed for children — but I gotta say, as a '90s kid I wouldn't mind getting a Pokémon bath bomb as a gift! My husband is still very much obsessed with the show and would 100% love the fact there's a hidden pocket monster inside this item.

    Promising review: "We bought these as a reward for our 5-year-old who is currently into Pokémon and they were great! He could hardly wait to take a bath each night. They are really foamy and whirl all around the tub, which is fun. The scents were nice-smelling and the little Pokémon figures were right up his alley. They’re little, but tiny collectible things are his jam. Great purchase! We will likely be ordering more." —S. Lithgow

    Promising review: "It secured my footing while showering in the tub. A few months ago I slipped and fell in my tub while taking a shower. This mat makes you confident in moving on the slippery surface. The water drains easily through the holes and underneath the mat. The mat is secured with small suction cups and it will not move or slide around. The material seems to be good quality. It has stayed clean for a few months of use so far." —Thaniel

My poor dog disagrees... they're now subject to my singing." —emjoy75

It does have a lovely scent that lingers but is not overwhelming. It smells wonderful and like a beach vacation. The lotion quickly absorbs, doesn't feel greasy or sticky.

In the winter it is wonderful to get into my whirlpool bath and soak the pain away. The quality and fragrance of the oil in the hot water is so wonderful. Something to look forward to after a cold winter day." —M. Connors

    30. And a jetted-tub cleaner, so you'll never find yourself soaking in filth while trying to catch up on your me-time.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "My wife told me we had to really clean what appeared to a clean tub. We moved into a house where the previous home owners were not the best cleaners. She had me get this product based on reviews. My one complaint is the label needs to be bigger. OH YUK is not enough. OH YUK YOU MIGHT BARF might be better. I think someone had a bowel movement in my bath tub plumbing and this is the only product that takes it out. It appears we have seven years of crud in the pipes. The feces-colored film that this product gets out of your pipes will make you a believer. The first use it released so much toot film that we felt like we needed to have another round of cleaning. After losing a bet I had to stick my hand in the water to drain it. Wiping off all the released film we filled the tub again. Just turning the jets the water seemed to be clear. However before I was going to ever get into this thing I wanted to do a second round of YUK treatment. Once again in full force it appeared that someone had the squirts in tub as sludge came flowing out of the pipes. We're going to have to run this a few times before we use the tub. Remember those pink tablets that you use to get in grade school to show you all the plaque that was on your teeth..... The product is like that for you tub." —Paul Southwick

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.
