Bath Essentials For A Cosy Night In

There is perhaps nothing more wonderful after a long, stressful day than luxuriating in the bath. It’s my favourite way to unwind before going to bed. I do it at least twice a week as it helps me to switch off and relax. I usually listen to a podcast or prop the laptop on the toilet seat and watch a cheesy rom-com. It never fails to uplift my mood, and I always emerge feeling rested and ready for a good nights sleep. Here are my favourite bath and body products that turn the simple act of having a bath into something very luxurious.

Therapie Himalayan Detox Salts// These bath salts are bloomin' expensive, but they are worth every single penny as they do everything from soothing muscle aches to balancing the skin's natural moisture levels. They smell absolutely lovely too - these essential oil-laden salts are blended with a lilting combination of lemongrass, juniper and geranium. I use about two spoonfuls, and they fill the bath with an uplifting scent that lingers all day long. I buy the refillable sachets as they are a lot more economical than buying the entire tub. Also, currently Fragrance Direct is selling them for 10£ a pop, which, if you ask me, is an absolute steal!

Ren Moroccan Rose Otto Bath Oil// This is an absolute treat. It's a rich, decadent oil that envelops you in a veil of rose-scented glow. I usually refrain from using bath oils as they turn the tub into a slippery mess, but this one sinks into the skin and leaves it feeling soft and pampered. Two cupfuls and I'm in heaven!

Body Shop British Rose Exfoliating Gel Body Scrub// Most rose scented products have that nauseatingly sweet smell, but this body scrub smells very luxe and spa-like. The scrubby bits are nonabrasive and incredibly gentle, maybe a little too gentle for me, but the invigorating scent is what tips the scales in its favour.

Aurelia Firm & Replenish Body Serum// I've mentioned this before, I'm not a fan of bergamot scented products, but the mix of mandarin and cedarwood balance it out quite beautifully. Lightweight and silky, this body lotion coats the skin in a light fragranced layer. It's intensely hydrating, and since using it, I have noticed a vast improvement in my skin. Now, this is a serious investment, but I’d happily live off soup just for the pleasure of it.
