There are some days you drag your carcass out of the house only to discover that the day is a complete waste of makeup. When you get home, instead of crawling straight into bed, you need to do something nice for yourself. How about taking a bubble bath? I did the leg work (and boy, the research was TOUGH – not really), but here are some brilliant picks for the world’s most rewarding tub o’ bubbles to reverse the suckage of your day:

We already know that I am a huge fan of all things Lush and this Pop In the Bath Bubble Bar ($6.95) is like a therapy session. A mixture of lemon oil, orange flower absolute and gardenia essential oils in a solid bar you crumble under running water for pretty much the most mind-blowing bubble bath of your life. It’s vegan, it’s fabulous and best of all it contains bergamot oil, which is a known anti-depressant and mood enhancer.

Another genius product? Juara Tiare Jasmine Tea Bath Shower Gel ($22) is brilliant as either a shower gel or it delivers beautifully for an amazing bubble bath. The scent is intoxicating without being overpowering, the formula is anti-aging as well as hydrating and the antioxidant benefits of tea leaves you with healthier, flake-free skin. I dare anyone to be in poor spirits after using this product.

Can’t sleep? The best solution ever is to squeeze two parts Johnson’s Bedtime Baby Bath ($4.99) with one part Johnson’s Lavender Baby Oil ($4.29) under warm running water. Even though you’re an adult, sometimes you just need to feel like someone’s giving you a warm hug and that’s what this bath will do for you. Added plus is baby soft skin. Be sure to set you alarm before you take this bath because you might be comatose by the time you hit the bed.

Sometimes it’s nice to just spend a little time soaking your cares away. These brilliant bubble baths will help chill out, float your cares away and put you back in the right frame of mind. After all, tomorrow is another day.
