Are you looking to elevate your bathroom without blowing through your bank account? Yeah, we’ve been there too—and we’re happy to report it’s easier than you think. To take the ambience up several notches, all you need are a few key items, like a candle that transports you to that five-star spa you still dream about or a luxe body scrub that smells so good you want to eat it for breakfast. The goal is to make your loo less of a purely utilitarian space and more of a retreat zone—that way you get the pampering you fully deserve. To get started, browse our curated list of self-care favorites and advice on how to use each one to turn your toilette into the ultimate spa sanctuary.
Beloved Cherry Blossom & Tea Rose Whipped Body Scrub
Who needs to visit an actual spa when you have a luxurious at-home body treatment like this one? Scented with sweet cherry blossom and tea rose, it smells as amazing as a spring day. Plus, it contains good-for-you ingredients like glycerin, sunflower oil, and shea butter, which deeply nourish skin during the exfoliation process. It’s also vegan, packaged in 100-percent recycled plastic jars, and free of parabens and sulfates. Need we say more?
Gua Sha Facial Lifting Tool
Treat yourself to a relaxing facial massage in the tub with a gua sha tool like this one, made of Xiyuan jade—a powerful stone known for its balancing properties. Gua sha is said to promote healthy blood circulation (a key component to healthy skin). With regular use, you may even notice your complexion starts to look brighter, clearer, and visibly lifted. Incorporate it into your bathtime routine a few times a week and trust us, you’ll never look back.
This is not your average essential oil diffuser. With a hand-milled porcelain shell and multiple time settings, it is not only luxurious but ultra-functional. It uses ultrasonic vibrations rather than heat to disperse the oil more efficiently. Which means your expensive oils will last longer.
Beloved Juniper & Bergamot Vegan Scented Candle
Bath-time isn’t complete without a candle or two—and this one checks all the boxes. Made with ethically-sourced oils and extracts, this blend of fresh, woodsy juniper and fruity bergamot is one seriously indulgent scent that’ll make your bathroom smell like a spa set in a magical winterscape (Vail, perhaps)? It’s also worth noting this candle is 100-percent vegan, made with a soy wax blend, and free of artificial dyes. Oh, and did we mention it delivers up to 40 hours of burn time? *Adds to cart.*
Flawless Ice Roller
Another great bathtime activity is ice rolling—a facial massage technique that offers a slew of benefits for the skin, including minimizing the appearance of pores and reducing redness and puffiness. This ice roller, in particular, slaps because it’s lightweight, compact (great for travel purposes), and super-cute. Seriously though, imagine this pretty tool sitting on your bathroom counter? Très chic.
Bamboo Bathtub Tray
If you’re someone who takes baths often, you hands-down need an organizer like this one. It conveniently fits across your tub so you can easily access all your bath-time necessities: hand cream, the book you’re reading, you name it. This one fits any bath and is made of high-quality bamboo, which is super durable. It also features an array of storage options to stash all of your essentials, big and small.
Energizing Dry Body Brush
If you’re not familiar with dry brushing, it’s a pre-shower or -bath technique used to gently exfoliate the skin and stimulate blood circulation. This one by Alicia Keys’ wellness brand features biodegradable, vegan bristles and was developed with the help of a board-certified dermatologist (so you know it’s legit). Pro tip: Store your dry brush where it’ll stay dry, so it stays fresh and doesn’t breed bacteria.
