If there's one reality that was true before and after quarantine life, it's that the bathroom is one of the few places mama can sneak away for some peace. It's basically a sacred haven when you just need a minute (even if a little one is sneaking a peek underneath the door).
So what better time than now to transform it into your own home spa? A place that's just for you, ready when you need a little extra calm.
Here are our favorite products to make your bathroom a little more luxurious.
I have a confession: I'm a bath addict. If I'm stressed, need quiet time that doesn't involve a screen or actually want to read more than a few pages in a book, I make a beeline for the tub.
This bamboo bath tray will make you feel like you're in a resort's jacuzzi tub, not the one you share with the whole fam. With safety slots for your beverage of choice, spot for a candle and book holder, you'll be escaping in no time.
Plants are the perfect way to bring instant spa vibes. This one thrives in medium to low indirect light and is easy for beginner plant parents, so it's ideal for bathrooms that often don't have a ton of direct sunlight.
If you can't get some quiet time, you can at least jam out to your favorite music while taking a few minutes to yourself. This portable bluetooth speaker will easily connect to your phone and suctions to the shower wall. And, don't worry, water splashes and shower steam won't interfere with the sound quality.
When was the last time you upgraded your razor? I'm not sure what magic makes this razor so great, but it provides such a close shave and never irritates my skin. The 5 sharp blades are surrounded by charcoal shave soap for an extra-deep clean, too. This kit comes with two blades and a magic magnetic holder to keep it safely stored away in the shower (and is less than $10!).
One of the easiest ways to switch up the bathroom aesthetic is to swap out the shower curtain. We're obsessed with the minimalist look and feel of this waffle shower curtain from Boll and Branch. Crafted from organic cotton, it adds a bit of texture and luxury to even the smallest bathroom.
Made for solo or partner soaks, these hand-harvested blends infuse your bath water with nourishing vitamins and minerals for a spa-like experience at home. One features their signature scent of amber, cedar leaf, clove, lemongrass and medjool date which calms the senses and lingers on skin, while the unscented blend moisturizes with coconut milk. And what spa isn't filled with delightful glass amber jars?
These three handmade bath bombs are full of incredible ingredients, like jamts salt and seabuckthorn, that'll make you feel like you're relaxing somewhere exotic. You'll get out of the tub with moisturized skin and a clearer headspace.
The perfect post-bath moisturizer, the firming oil from Esker goes on smooth and absorbs quickly to hydrate, tighten and pamper skin. The fresh, citrusy scent is energizing and uplifting, and transfers to my bedsheets in a way that makes me love returning even more than would otherwise.
And why simply rub oil on when you can roll it? Pamper yourself just a little more with this oversize (and doubly awesome) jade roller. Just glide it over your face and body to create a simple yet enjoyable daily ritual that instantly soothes and over time reveals skin that is toned, firm, and glowing. It's designed to increase stimulation, break up fascia which causes tension and puffiness throughout the body, and helps to absorb and boosts the effects of your favorite treatment oil or product.
Pretend you're at the spa with this super-soft, Pima cotton robe from LAKE. It's just the right weight to keep you warm without overheating and the added stretch makes it easy to wear about the house for as long as you like.
At all times, I have at least three candles in every room. Lighting them makes a space feel more luxurious and the aromas send me straight into self-care mode. This one is a splurge, but I promise it's worth every penny. Its powder-meets-bergamot scent is beyond soothing, it's made from a blend of coconut and soy wax and the fragrance is phthalate-free. Bonus points for lasting for about 60 hours of burn time.
You're going to have to end your spa session at some point, so why not do it in style? The waffle-weave design combined with the 100% cotton fabric ensures these towels to dry quickly (and no shrinking!). We'll take one in each color, please.
Step out of the shower directly onto an extra-thick (and oh-so-soft) bath mat. This one from Brooklinen comes in four classic colorways, two sizes and can be machine-washed, just use a tumble cycle for drying. The piping details make this look like it's made for a hotel suite.
Yes, this is technically for little ones, but I'm here to tell you that it makes the best bubbles. It's gentle, plant-based and smells delicious. Even better, the coconut oil, aloe, and avocado oil leaves your skin nourished.
When I'm feeling extra stressed, I turn to this essential oil roller that's a mix of citrus oils and CBD to activate the relaxation. One swipe on your temples, wrists and forehead and you'll be saying, "Ahhhhh."
The clay will help increase circulation and gently exfoliate your skin while the goat's milk "rejuvenates with fatty acids, trace minerals and omegas." It's a dry mask so you mix it with 1 tsp of liquid (your choice of water, apple cider vinegar, honey or even yogurt), and then apply to your face and let dry as you relax. It's great for sensitive skin and feels amazing after you rinse.
