Who else enjoys self-care as your “me time”? For years I use to think luxury consisted of a trip to the spa for the day. To be very honest, that has only happened once in my life. During quarantine time, I started to incorporate some type of “me time” daily. My sanity needed it. But I would be full of crap if I said I do this every day, but I try my best to incorporate some type of self-care daily. And it could be as small as pampering yourself with a luxurious nighttime shower.
As much as I love doing my makeup and getting dressed in outfits that make me feel like a total badass, I enjoy getting settled in for the night way more! It’s my me time, where I can enjoy my own company and treat myself.
Here are 7 items that will make your shower or bath routine more luxurious
I typically burn candles throughout the day, mainly while cleaning. My bathroom candle has always been purely for decoration. Once I started to up my nighttime shower routine, I decided to burn these decorate candles finally. And I love it! I have a ton of favorites, but this brand from TJ Maxx has been a fav lately! Cologne scents are what I usually go for, but for a smaller space as my bathroom can be a bit overwhelming. Sand & Fog candles burn more gently and are not overly powerful.
What’s more relaxing than CBD? I’ve talked about the difference CBD has made in my life here and here. I loved adding these bath salts to my bath routine. I mean it when I say, I come out of that bath as a complete other women… totally relaxed! A must have!!
You so don’t need this, but need this at the same time! It takes your bath time to a whole different level. Honestly, it’s what makes a bath feel completely luxurious. You can literally add everything and anything you need including a spot for your wine glass and book or iPad!! Even the kids enjoy using this for their baths.
If you enjoy the scent of bath salts, you will enjoy these shower tablets. You add them to your shower floors and enjoy. There are different scents, but the bedtime sandalwood is by far my favorite.
Whether you’re taking a bath or shower these are such inexpensive luxury items. They feel better than your typical wash cloth or loofah. You can take it a step further and go for a scented bath sponge. They already include a relaxing scent and can be used multiple times. I also love these for traveling. No need to bring body wash or soap and can be thrown away afterward.
This has been around for a bit and I recently started using it. Where have I’ve been?! It’s honestly the best invention ever. You use it after showering and then pat dry your body with a towel. It leaves your skin extremely soft and no need to worry about adding body lotion after.
If we are talking about a luxurious shower routine, you have to include a body spray! I know it may sound silly, but I grew up using body sprays after showering, even if it was just to go to sleep. This list wouldn’t be complete without adding this coconut palm from Mix Bar. I love anything coconut scent, but this is what I call an adult fruity fragrance.
