Don’t get me wrong: I love a good glass of wine, relaxing AF playlist, and lavender-scented bubble bath as much as the next girl. However, during some weeks (more like months), I don’t have the time to light candles, run a bath, and be able to relax in the tub. My nighttime routine looks way more like a quick shower before bed and a face mask, if I’m lucky. Let’s be honest: baths are great, but showers are way more realistic. However, just because your time is cut short (or you don’t have a bath tub in your home) does not mean you can’t experience the luxurious, relaxing, spa-like effect that you get from soaking in a tub. You can turn your five-minute shower before bed into the most relaxing five minutes of your day, thanks to these 20 products. Forget bombs, soaks, and caddies: self-care showers are the new bubble baths.


Daily Treatment Oil

Because the best part of your shower is what you rub on your skin when you get out, make sure the oil you use is as luxurious as it is good for you. Equilibria's CBD Daily Treatment Oil moisturizes while supporting a wide range of skin concerns like pore size or dry skin.

I don't know who needs to hear this, but it's probably time to upgrade the bar of soap you've been using forever.

And don't even get me started on the delicious orange blossom scent.
