Basically, this product is great for all ages and skin types, plus it can be used as many times a week as you'd like. It truly doesn't get any better than this, especially when you consider the price. 

If this scent is a bit too earthy for you, you can also opt for the lavender and wild orchid or coconut and hibiscus blends. Or, you know, all three since they're so affordable.

The bath pillow of all bath pillows

When it comes to a recipe for a successful bath time, it's equal parts products and accessories. Nothing screams "pamper me" quite like a bath pillow. This ​​inflatable bath pillow from Amazon not only has crazy great reviews, but it's also only $8. One side is terry cloth as well, so you'll be at the peak comfort level your entire bath time. 

According to Self, this is a top-rated bath pillow for the way it cradles your head and the non-slip grip of the suction cups on the back. After all, nothing is worse than a slipping pillow while you're trying to relax. Both the fabric and the grip make for an ideal experience. Just add in your bubbles, soak in your salts, and light a candle or two. This pillow will have you feeling like you're at a high-end spa day for only a fraction of the price.

Bath bombs that won't mess up your pH

This list wouldn't quite be complete without a bath bomb on the list. Dr Teal's brand has amazing ratings on almost every product, but specifically for their bag of little bath balls. Byrdie even put it on their list of the top bath bombs overall, and it sits on the list with some pretty pricey contenders. 

What's so special about this one is that it's dye-free. According to Allure, some bath bombs can mess with your pH because of all the added fragrances and dyes. Dr Teal's keeps it simple and it pays off. Heck, you even get a whopping five bath bombs for $5. That's $1 per bath, which is actually incredible. Not to mention it's easier to make every bath time special — not just once in a while. Run, don't walk to Target to find these goodies.

Whether you're looking to stock up on your favorite item on this list or all five, you really can't go wrong. Gift them or keep them stocked in your bathroom closet for yourself, because the more the merrier with these incredible finds.
