The Perfect Bath Setup.

What’s a bath without bubbles?

I have a theory that a bath without bubbles is not really a bath, so I always go a bit crazy with the foam. I swear by the Zoella Beauty Soap Opera Bubble Bath, this smells incredible and it creates the softest, most luxurious bubbles for true pampering!

If I’ve run out of that (unlikely, I stockpile on it every time I’m near a store), I look to Lush for some of my old faithfuls. Rose Jam Bubbleroon and The Comforter are my staples – both pink in colour and perfectly fragranced, of course.
As soon as the nights get colder, I seem to spend a lot more time in Lush!

I always put on a face mask when I’m in the bath, I may as well since I’m not doing much else – I usually pop on something hydrating and right now I adore the Bobbi Brown Nourishing Skin Mask – and not just because it’s pink!
This feels so soothing on the skin so it’s just the thing after a long, busy week! One thin layer on cleansed skin and you’re good to go. A smooth, plump complexion in no time.

Occasionally… as in, very rarely, I find some reserve energy to do a hair mask! I’m actually pretty lazy when it comes to steps like hair masks but I do love this dreamy Kristin Ess Reconstructive Moisture Mask. I picked this up in the US this year and I haven’t looked back, it makes my hair so deliciously soft. Plus, the packaging is beautiful!

I really do try to sit back when I’m in the bath, but sometimes I do like to do a liiiiiittle bit of beauty prep. Usually it’s just a bit of exfoliation because I get a bit reptilian in the winter, and I love the Herbivore Coco Rose scrub – it’s packed with coconut oil and it feels so lovely on the skin. I use a little bit on the tops of my arms to smooth over the skin, it takes a few minutes but makes a big ol’ difference.

All that’s left is a candle! My love for candles (is out of control) knows no bounds, so of course I take one in with me when I have a bath. I keep a couple of the mini Jo Malone babies on hand for this very reason – right now I’m all about Lime Basil & Mandarin everything!
I find having a candle burning is so relaxing, so it’s a nice little touch for that added bit of charm!

The real secret is in the drink you pick! Tea is always a winner, but I recommend a cold glass of wine on a Friday night… if I drop a few hints, Jordan sometimes even brings me a cocktail. How about that!

Time to stock up on pamper essentials!

What can I say, I’m a bath connoisseur! Do you love bathtime as much as this gal?

    I definitely need one of those bath planks to go across my bath, how handy to keep your tea/book and products on! Rose Jam Bubbleroon is one of my old time favourites too, can never go wrong! xx


  • we are currentl renting so theres only so much we can do to the bathroom but i love it still, especially since we got new furniture. getting one of those bathtub overlay rack things was one of my best ideas. it looks so good. a french kiss has to be my favourite bubble bar ever.

    Deep bubble baths are my favourite way to unwind at the end of the day. I’ll always add a little Cowshed bath oil too and pop on a face mask!

    These images made me swoon! You do it so well! Everything here is now on my wish list.

    Always my inspo-instigator.

    Thanks Kate! x

  • Leila Chapman

    Omgosh, thank you for this post! I am buying the Zoella Soap Opera through your links for sure, but I also want that wooden plank! The link is dead though – where/how can I buy it? There are a lot of options out there but quality seems inconsistent. The one you have is beautiful, and I’d love to get the same! Can I get a fresh link from you?

    • Simoné Vos

      Hey Leila
      I spied one on Hannah Gales Insa stories at Sainsburys 🙂

  • charley Mccaw

    love this and the bath looks good

  • I have never wanted to take a bath more than right now! Beautiful pictures Kate! xx

    Dany | Danielle Reine

  • It makes me so happy that others love baths as much as me 🙌🏻

  • I love a good bath but our bath isn’t great. It’s a tad too narrow so you can’t sit comfortably in it. I can’t wait until we renovate the bathroom as we’re going to put in a big corner bath! 🙂

  • This sounds like the perfect bath experience! I agree that the drink is very important! I’d love me some tasty and comforting chai or some kind of a spicy tea :). The products you mention sound great too! I write about different beauty products I love to use, you can read about it here : https://coffeenglam.com/2018/02/12/moisturizers-and-oils-i-used-lately/
