wine... read a good book? What products do you like to use in the bath? How long do your baths usually last and how often? I love bubble baths. I take several a week and can spend over an hour in there reading. I love Lush bath products. I like bubble bath bars, luxery bath melts, and bath fizzies. I also enjoy bath soaks, bath salts and bath sugars.

Oh yes! I do it all! :D I toss in whatever product I've got at the moment, light some aromatherapy candles, some incense, pour myself a drink and soak with a good book. It's the best way to unwind after a long day. I love the Lush Bath Bombs combined with a bubble bar - I'll combine a Honey Bee Bomb with a Ma Bar Bubble Bar and just spend an hour in there soaking it all in!

Me too. I've never had a ma bar or a honey bee. I'm worried because the honey products I've bought from B&BW have made my tub slippery and sticky.

The only problem I've found with the Honey Bee Bomb is that it's grainy and can sometimes leave a grainy ring around the tub. But it wipes away easily and doesn't stain. I've never had a problem with slippery-ness from Lush's honey products.

Thanks - I am going to Seattle Thursday and plan to go to the Bellevue Lush while I'm there...maybe I will check out the honey products while I'm there (this will be my first store experience - everything else I've purchased online).

Taking a bubble bath has to be one of the most relaxing things in the world. I don't usually go as far as to light candles, but I do load up on the bubbles and lay back and read a book. Often I will fall asleep in there too :)

I don't light candles every time. I rarely do... but it makes it better. And sometimes my fiance is nice and brings me drinks or chocolate while I'm in there.

I love lighting candles but sometimes I have a problem reading because my hands get wet and I don't like the books to get wet :(

I always keep a towel nearby so I can dry my hands on it while I read or write in the tub. Sometimes instead of a candle (since my bathroom light is on a dimmer!) I will burn a soy tart just for the smell.

Hi there! I think that sounds very relaxing indeed. I usually have a quick shower morning and night and that does me! I like to use the sugar in the shower and I love anything that's herbal.

I love sugars... I have one someone bought me from Bath and Body works. It smells like a sugar cookie. I want to eat it.

I like sugar scrubs in the shower, too, but the ones I used to get from Bath and Body works would get hard and scratchy. The sugar crystals clump together and the oils are left on the bottom. I have tried scrubs from Isle of Eden and Robyn's Beaded Hemp that are much fluffier and they lather a little, too. The Isle of Eden Srubs have great scents that stay on your skin all day. Can't Sleep, Clowns will Eat Me is the only one I have tried from there and it is awesome!

I keep hearing that all of their stuff is really desert scented... maybe I will check it out. What does Can't Sleep the Clowns Will Eat Me smell like?

My boyfriend's mum really likes Lush Products. I like bubble baths but I don't have them often and don't light candles although I do like the idea of having a nice relaxing bath with candles though. Possibly insent candles. Maybe it's something to try once I move out and get a hosue with my boyfriend... :)

Taking a hot bath is one of my favorite ways to relax. It doesn't necessarily have to have bubbles, but it does add to it to do so. I also love reading in the bathtub by candlelight, though I always seem to get the pages of my book wet. I would love to be able to have bath salts and fizzies, but they always seem to break my skin out.

Have you tried any all natural products that are either lightly scented... or nonscented?

You need to find bath products that are made of fewer synthetic ingredients, I think. Try just using shea butter you can get it in unscented, and add essential oils yourself for scent. This is good if you like your baths super hot!

I love taking bubble baths. I use bath and body works products mostly, that is due to the fact that I work there. Usually my baths last from 45 minutes to 1 1/2 hours. I don't take them that often maybe once every 2 months or so. I read often in there. When I read though are the times I end up until the water is freezing. I love bubble bath, bath salts and sugars. Bath and Body Works has a 3 in 1 product, it's a bubble bath, shampoo and body wash. I use that most often. Its so convienent and smells yummy.

never expereiced, but i think taking a bubble bath would be a nice expereince though i think spa is also not bad. i do not spend that much time while bathing there's no time to read a book or do anything else while am taking a bath, i finish bathing in 5 mins.

We do not have any bath tubs in our comfort room in the house so I didn't get any bubble baths except if I checked-in a hotel for a night.

That used to be my most favorite thing to do. I didn't read, just closed my eyes and relaxed and kept adding hot water off and on. Probably stayed in there at least an hour. Sometimes I would take one every evening. What bliss! Now, I'm partially handicapped with osteoarthritis in my knees and they don't bend too well, so I haven't gotten down in a tub in a long time. I've missed those bubble baths!

It sounds absolutle fabulous, I really need to try and make time to do things like that, but with two kids as a single mom, by the end of the day I just want to take a quick shower and go to bed.

I like to get in the bubble bath and read a book, but I don't get the chance to do it very often. It's like as soon as I do, here come the kids and the dogs. I don't get any privacy.
