POV: You’re wrapped in a fluffy robe and feel warm steam billowing around you. You close your eyes and breathe in the scent of the skin-soothing mask on your face, and you’re filled with gratitude for this stress-free moment of bliss.
No, you’re not in a spa. This five-star experience can happen in your very own bathroom any time you shower if you have two things: the right mindset and a few key products.
On the mindset front, here’s a tip: Instead of rushing through your daily shower, use it as an intentional moment to disconnect from technology and reconnect with yourself. Take a second to put on a spa-inspired instrumental playlist before you hop in, do a quick gratitude meditation while you shave your legs or wash your hair, and watch how this mundane task can become the most relaxing part of your day.

Olaplex #4 and #5 Liter Duo
An integral part of the spa experience is to relax. So, help yourself to stress a little less by stocking up on this liter duo of Olaplex shampoo and conditioner so you won’t have to worry about running out for a long time. Bonus: The scent is totally spa-worthy, too.
KAZMALEJE Kurls Plus Wide Tooth Pick Hair Comb
Keeping a comb in your shower is the hack you never knew you needed. Not only can you use it to gently comb your tangles out (the wide teeth are designed for easier detangling), but it can also be used to evenly distribute your pre-wash treatments and hair masks.

No matter what time of day you prefer to shower, this cleanser set has your back. Give your skin (and yourself) a burst of energy with an invigorating citrus and ginger scent in the morning, and wind down with deep sea minerals and sea kelp extract to wash away impurities at night.
Mario Badescu The Mini Mist Collection
After you finish your relaxing shower, refresh your skin with an aromatherapy-esque moment by misting a fragrant facial spray all over your face. Then climb into bed feeling clean, relaxed, and fully converted to the at-home spa experience.
