Your daily shower can be a boring, monotonous routine. With the right shower accessories, it doesn’t have to be. An effective shower can help relieve the impacts of stress, improve blood circulation and muscle recovery after a hard workout, as well as enhance your overall hygiene.
Most people think they need a trip to the spa to get these therapeutic effects. However, with the right set of gear in your bathroom, your shower can go from a chore to feeling like an individualized spa adventure. A shower beer session is a great place to start, but since cracking open beer in the morning isn’t exactly acceptable, we’re here to give you some other options that’ll allow you to unwind.
From comfortable, aesthetically satisfying towels, bathrobes, and bath mats to waterproof speakers and other toiletries, these shower accessories will enhance your shower experience while keeping you feeling fresh.
Onsen Bath Towel Bundle – $156
When diving into bathroom accessories, the first thing that comes to mind is towels. This is what you’ll use most often when tidying and grooming, and you’d be surprised just how far this simple luxury will take you. Our editor owns these towels and he swears by their soft texture and effectiveness, all due to the waffle weave construction.
Parachute Waffle Robe – $119
If you don’t own a robe, you should. Not only are they great for lounging on lazy days, but a bathrobe will truly make you feel like you’re living the spa life — especially with this luxurious waffle robe. Featuring a lightweight cotton build, hip pockets, a folded collar, and a great waist tie, Parachute provides a functional and comfortable fit available in charcoal grey or cream. There’s also an unspoken expectation to have a matching pair of slippers.
Fulton & Roark 2-1 Shampoo and Body Wash – $20
An effective 2-in-1 body wash will help you save on shower time. Boasting a rich blend of rosemary, B5, and caffeine, Fulton & Roark’s body wash and shampoo combo was designed for much more than just making you smell good and scrubbing grime away quickly. It’s robust formula actually rehydrates and energizes your skin and hair to give you an extra fresh feeling for the day.
Morihata Ishikoro Pebble Stone Bath Mat – $76
Not only will this river bed-inspired mat make your bathroom looks amazing, it also provides ample absorbance to quickly soak up water and a padded texture that feels great underneath your feet.
Morihata Binchotan Charcoal Body Scrub Towel – $20
You definitely have a normal towel and you probably have a hand towel, but you might not own a body scrub towel. Think of this as an exfoliator for your body, because it is. The Binchotan body scrub towel also features a softer portion for sensitive skin, and a coarser section for the contrary.
Tooletries Mighty Toothbrush Holder – $18
Shower organization is essential. The Tooletries silicon toothbrush holder has space for your toothpaste, a hanger for your razor, and a small shelf for important hand jewelry. The best part is its ability to attach to glass, mirror, tiles, or marble.
Soundbot Bluetooth Waterproof Speaker – $15
For some of us, relaxation and therapy comes through sound, and there’s nothing better than enjoying a nice, hot shower to the soundtrack of your favorite tunes. Soundbot offers one of the best shower speakers you can get. Take advantage of its universal compatibility, water-resistant loudspeaker, and constructed mic for use both indoor and outdoor use. All this at a price that won’t break the bank.
Happy-li Rain Shower Head – $36
If you haven’t showered with a rain shower head, you’re missing out — it’s fantastic. Happy-li’s affordable waterfall head is easy to install and will give you the luxe spa feeling you’ve been yearning for. And if you don’t end up liking it, it’s backed by a two-year warranty.
Noppor Foot Scrubber – $15
Sometimes it feels like you can never get your feet to a satisfyingly level of clean. If this is you, Noppor’s foot scrubber is an effective and functional approach to cleaning and massaging your feet in the shower. It may feel a bit uncomfortable at first, but once you’ve slipped your foot into one of these scrubbers and let the bristles do the work, your feet will never feel the same again.
