Even though I’m not a fan of the cold and rain, I do love my cosy sweaters and baths in the fall. It’s usually around this time that I start taking regular baths to help relax and warm up my body. I’m completely obsessed with LUSH Bath Bombs, but they can be incredibly expensive so I’m always on the lookout for similar products that don’t break the bank. I was sent a sampling of bath products to try out and share with you guys. These are great because they are incredibly affordable, and are super nice to use.
ME! Bath (C$10.99 for a bag of six) comes in five different scents – Lavender Lullaby, Birthday Cake, Cucumber Melon, Pomegranate, and Love, ME!, the last one being a blend of berries, coconut milk and vanilla. The products are made in the US, and are 100% cruelty-free and vegan. It has the same base ingredients of Sodium Bicarbonate, as well as skin nourishing ingredients of jojoba oil, sweet almond oil, sesame oil, and macademia nut oil. They also contain seat salt and epsom salts to help relax the muscles, which is something not typically blended with a bath bomb.
The two ME! Bath scents are Lavender Lullaby, which is AMAZING for a pre-sleep bath. The lavender smells so soft and soothing for my mind, and does a fantastic job at relaxing me at the end of the day. The Love, ME! smells really yummy. I love the coconut milk and vanilla, and the touch of berry reminds me of dessert.
I was sent the Calgon Bath Fizzies (C$7.99 for eight) in Hawaiian Ginger, which smells like a tropical beach vacation. I actually didn’t love this one as much as the ME! Bath, it just felt a bit too strongly fragranced. Each bath fizzy contains vitamin E, which helps to moisturize the skin.
One downside of LUSH bath bombs is that I find the sizes can be too big and the scents too overwhelming (especially if you use the entire thing). Sometimes it just feels like a waste. With ME! Bath and Calgon, each bath bomb is smaller in size, so it is perfect to get the benefits of using a bath bomb without the extra waste. If you love an extra strong bath, you can throw 2-3 bath bombs in the water, and even then it’s still more affordable than a LUSH bath bomb.
Between ME! Bath and Calgon, I love ME! Bath a bit more because the scents are more me and the formula feels better on my skin after a bath.
The other cult favourite bath product is the Dr. Teal’s Epsom Salts (C$8.99). I’ve been working out less regularly lately so if I work out intensely one day, my body gets pretty sore the next day. It’s the perfect time to use the Dr. Teal’s Epsom Salts as I’ve never tried it before. Epsom salts contain Magnesium Sulfate to soothe tired muscles, as well as, depending on the specific scent, a blend of different essential oils to help revitalize and hydrate the skin. The scent I have is Soothe & Sleep with Lavender, which is great for a pre-sleep soak.
My favourite way to bath is to combine one ME! Bath bath bomb with the Dr. Teal’s Epsom Salts to get pure mind and body relaxation. They are all so affordable that I can be happy bathing regularly without worrying about going through my bath products so quickly.
You can pick up ME! Bath at Shopper’s Drug Mart, and Calgon and Dr. Teal’s at London Drugs, Shopper’s Drug Mart, and Walmart.
