one of my favorite ways to decompress is in the bathtub. i can honestly spend hours in the tub whether it be in silence, with a great playlist, with my macbook sitting on an ottoman streaming a show i am behind on or just stretched out with a good book. i am all about ways to enhance my bathing experience. because my work wife (reens) knows this about me, she surprised me last week with a dozen bath bombs.
life around 2 angels is a california based brand and can be purchased via etsy or amazon (you’ll get them extra fast if you are a prime member). what i love most about them aside from how wonderful they smell and how soft/silky my skin felt afterwards is that there was not an ounce of color in my white bathtub afterwards. the first bomb i used was the black raspberry vanilla and when i saw the deep eggplant color spread throughout my bathwater, i was holding my breath just thinking about how much i would need to scrub the tub afterwards. that could not have been further from the truth.
i noticed that i did not need to apply as much lotion post bath because the bomb served as a gentle moisturizer without leaving a residue on my skin. while i could smell hints of berry and vanilla on my skin afterwards, it was not overpowering and did not clash with the perfume i wear almost daily. after looking on amazon, there is a reason why with over 7800 reviews, life around 2 angels has five stars.
i am already dreaming about my next bath. the hardest decision will be what scent to use next.
what is your favorite way to enhance your bath?
