Between work, love, friends, and social media, the life of millennial women can be truly exhausting. Luckily, there’s one self-care ritual we can count on to calm our minds and soothe our bodies: a long, luxurious soak in the tub. Of course, the perfect bath isn’t complete without a relaxing, hand-crafted bath bomb to make it really special. So if you ever actually get around to cleaning your gross tub so that it’s not physically unsafe for full-body contact, here is a selection of some of the best bath bombs out there.
Twilight (Lush, $6.55)
Life can get hectic, and sometimes that makes it hard to wind down come bedtime. Luckily, this luxurious pink bath bomb is made with lavender, a calming scent that will send you drifting off to dreamland. If you ever become the type of person who cleans out their tub on a regular basis, this bath bomb is an excellent choice. If only!
Butterball (Lush, $4.95)
This bath bomb smells like vanilla and is made with cocoa butter to soothe and soften dry skin. After a rough day at the office, simply light some candles, fill the tub, and slip one of these heavenly-scented bombs into a full, steamy bath. Before you do that, though, get on your hands and knees and clean that disgusting tub until the porcelain is visible again. You don’t want to be soaking in dirty swamp water, do you?
Avobath (Lush, $6.45)
This fizzy green bath bomb is made with energizing lemongrass and avocado. By the way, did you know that 60% of people pee in the shower? One of those people could be your roommate. Don’t risk it. Until you remember to stop by the dollar store to pick up that Soft Scrub knockoff brand your mom recommended, treat yourself to a daydream about this little number.
Tisty Tosty (Lush, $6.45)
This heart-shaped, rose-scented bath bomb is almost too pretty to use—especially in your disgusting bath! It’s perfect for displaying on your bathroom counter as a daily reminder that your tub is still dirty and you should probably think about maybe doing something about it.
Pink Bath Bomb (Lush, $4.95)
This adorable pink bath bomb is formulated with tonka bean and vanilla and smells deliciously of candy. Toss it in your bath for a sweet, playful treat. But first you’ll want to purchase some Scrubbing Bubbles and sponges. Before indulging in your bath, spray it liberally with the Scrubbing Bubbles, and then go to town scouring that tub of crusty old soap scum and mildew. Afterwards, rinse thoroughly and wait for the harsh chemical smell to dissipate. Then turn on some relaxing music, because if you’re not too tired from cleaning, it’s bath time! Just remember, this bath bomb will coat your entire bathtub with a layer of bright pink film, which must be cleaned immediately afterwards to prevent staining. Talk about a relaxing evening!
There you have it! One day, you will definitely clean your tub, but until then, you can purchase these bath bombs and cling to them like a fragrant totem symbolizing the woman you hope to eventually become. Because you deserve it!
