If you’re going to turn up your bath with just one product, this should be it. The perfect blend of science and soul, the Mind and Body Wash is made from natural moisturizers like olive oil, coconut oil, aloe, and shea, and smells like a Pacific forest after a rain. The appeal of this plant- and mineral-infused body wash crosses all societal boundaries — its fans include dirtbags, techies, athletes, and a 60-year-old Oakland mechanic named Ron who borrowed his wife’s bottle and now buys it in bulk. (True story.)

In the time of the ancient Egyptians and for millennia that followed, milk baths were regularly practiced by the wealthy. Sounds weird, but the fat, protein, and lactic acid in milk make skin clean, soft, and supple. The frothy texture of this soothing milk bath includes skin-nourishing vitamins from macadamia and avocado oils and a restorative eucalyptus scent.

Turbo Wash Energizing Cleanser

The Turbo Wash Energizing Cleanser is great to use before and after workouts. Its dual-purpose formula consisting of rosemary, eucalyptus, arnica, and juniper berry has the ability to wake up the senses and loosen muscles to jump-start your body before exercise, and at the same time, can help soothe and relax overworked muscles after an intense workout. Sulfate-free cleansing properties are also present to give your body and hair a deep clean without removing their essential moisture.

Aesop Geranium Leaf Body Cleanser

Thisworks Deep Sleep Bath Soak

As its moniker suggests, this bath soak from Thisworks is perfect to add to your end-of-day-ritual. It comes with sleep-inducing properties that not only melt away the stress and anxiety of the day you had but also set your mind and body for sleep.

Along with working great as a personal fragrance, Juniper Ridge’s body oils make a beautiful addition to the bath. The jojoba-almond-coconut oil base imbues your bath with rich moisture, and the wildcrafted essential oils transport you to the natural paradise of your dreams. We love the Desert Cedar scent for how it calls to mind the dry, sharp air of the High Sierras.

The 19 Best Face and Body Wipes for Men

As we've learned this past year, it's always good to take personal hygiene seriously. You've hopefully already got a well-stocked bathroom in terms of your shower routine, but what about the rest of your daily lifestyle? Maybe it's finally time to level up your hygiene kit with high-quality and skin-friendly body wipes, which are helpful should you forget to bring your hand sanitizer to your favorite restaurant or to refresh on a road trip. What’s great about body wipes and other essential grooming products is that they’re compact, making them the perfect travel grooming items for an all-weekend trip to the backcountry or the beach.

However, body wipes do more than just kill germs, since some are geared toward removing makeup or are imbued with ingredients to target specific skin types -- just like your go-to face washes. Now that the season for outdoor adventures is here, let’s do everything we can to stay fresh and clean, starting with the best face and body wipes for men. Be sure to dispose of the wipes properly after use. Don't flush them, please.

The 9 Best Home Spa Products to Turn Your Bathroom Into a Spa Sanctuary

As a bookish Harvard law student once sarcastically yet accurately said in the Hollywood Classic Legally Blonde, the spa is the mothership to every well-manicured American. It’s a safe space to ignore our outside obligations and indulge in our vanities, where we’re buffed, scrubbed, and polished into our most radiant, fabulous selves. While a premium spa session will cost you as much as an out-of-network therapist, its mental health benefits are almost as effective.

However, people may be reluctant to visit spas, which is understandable given the pandemic. But remember, this is America. We’re hardwired to build our conveniences within arm’s reach. We’ve converted our basements into movie theaters, garages into home gyms, and even bathrooms into spas. Unlike building a home gym or theater, turning your bathroom into a tranquil, world-class spa oasis doesn’t require bulky equipment or tech wizardry. Ahead are the best home spa products for your bathroom, so you can balance your inner qi and make every day a spa day.
