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.

When shopping for the perfect men’s grooming products for your self-care regimen, there is a range of desirable product attributes you might look for — vegan, organic, non-comedogenic, and hypoallergenic to name a few. Many guys are also interested in the ethical and sustainable production of grooming products, so they want to find Fair Trade-Certified grooming products.
A Fair Trade certification indicates that at least one ingredient in the product was produced and traded in accordance with standards set forth by Fair Trade USA. Fair Trade Certification helps ensure workers and producers are paid fair wages and fair prices, work in safe environments and under safe conditions, protect the environment during production, and receive funds to develop their communities. Therefore, buying Fair Trade grooming products is one way you can promote ethical and fair trading practices, safe working conditions, community support, and environmental sustainability.
Unfortunately, there are few men’s grooming products that are fully Fair Trade Certified. However, there are some great grooming products that use fair trade ingredients with their brands committed to ethical business practices. Consider taking steps toward a kinder, fairer, safer way of conducting business while simultaneously looking your best with our recommendations for the best fair trade grooming products for men.
