25 Body Care Products Under $50 That'll Make Your Bath Time Feel So Luxurious

Is there anything better than taking a nice, hot 45-minute bath after the worst day ever? The answer is absolutely not. So here are 25 body care products under $50 that’ll make your bath time feel so luxurious, you’ll never want to leave. (Get ready for some seriously pruny hands, y’all).

If I'm being honest, I don’t think I’ll ever rent, lease, or purchase another apartment or house that doesn’t have a bathtub in at least one of the bathrooms. I've been addicted to taking baths for a very, very long time, and it’s hard to imagine living life without the warm embrace of a bath every night before bed.

My bath time has cured me from so many ailments, including colds, fevers, painful hangovers, mild depression, general sadness, stomachaches, a few rounds of a broken heart, headaches, and much more. Baths are my meditation of choice, and I don’t see myself changing my mind any time soon.

I take a bath at least 3-4 times a week, and I look forward to taking one all day. It's my moment of peace. My check-in-with-myself time. And I'm here to say: More baths in 2019!!! Check out the list below for a few (just kidding, there are 25 suggestions) of my favorite bath time products that’ll help enhance your experience and convert you to a tub lover, too.
