Beauty Blog: Bathtub bliss

my haven.

I take a bubble bath almost every single day. In fact, when we were house-hunting, a big, lux bath tub was one of my ‘must-haves.’ Now that I have my dream tub, I take full advantage of it as often as I can!

So yes, I am a beauty junkie—but that isn’t just for my makeup counter. I tend to go a little crazy on my bathtub essentials and at-home spa treatments! Here are a few of my favorites!

-First, you have to have a tray to hold your iPad (to stream Friends, obvi), a Turkish hand towel, and all the products I’m about to share with you! I got my tray at Amazon, it’s made of bamboo and it’s sturdy but still very spa-like.

Molton Brown ‘seamoss’ stress-relieving bath soak: First, this stuff smells amazing. Second, it turns your tub a beautiful greenish blue like the ocean! Tell me that’s not soothing in itself! Last, it’s stress-relieving (as the name suggests) and de-toxing, so you get out of the tub feeling all fresh and ready to go.

-My all-time favorite scrub & body wash for everyday use is Laura Mercier’s Almond Coconut Milk Scrub. Your skin will smell downright delicious. It’s super moisturizing and really rich.

-Another go-to is the Tree Hut Coconut Lime Shea Sugar Scrub. This stuff smells incredible and really gets all that dead skin off!

-I love a good mask. My at home-spa treatment game is pretty on-point, so for everyday use I recommend Charlotte Tilbury Goddess Skin Clay Mask. It dries pretty firm on your skin during treatment but not so much that it’s uncomfortable. Pro-tip: After rinsing it off, splash your face with cold water to tighten pores!

GLAM GLOW Firming treatment mask in Sonic blue: Yes, your face WILL BE BLUE and it’s awesome. But unlike the Charlotte Tilbury mask, this stuff is thick and dries hard. Like, you can’t move your face hard. But, that’s how you know it’s working! This isn’t your everyday use mask, so the jar will last you a while. It’s firming and lifting, and I really noticed a difference. Honestly, I’m a fan of all GLAM GLOW products.

-The good-old, Sephora sheet mask! Yes, you look like you are straight out of a horror movie, but this super moisturizing mask makes a big difference. Plus, they only run about $6. I always pick up a couple each time I am in Sephora. (Beauty junkie problems)Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion exfoliator: I got this stuff for free in my Fab Fit Fun Box, and I’m a huge fan. The scrub has tiny little micro-crystals that really work! Use it twice a week, and you will see a big change in the brightness of your skin. Be careful, though, no hard-scrubbing required.

-If your bubble bath is more of a quick dip, this splash mask is for you! I love the Energy Yellow Citrus & Honey Splash Mask by Blithe!

Follow your tub time with a big fluffy towel and a good robe, and it’s almost as good as a spa day!
