There might be nothing we love more on a cold winter night than lighting some candles and indulging in a hot bath. Want to make your bath time extra luxurious? Don't settle for that old bath bomb from the back of your bathroom drawer that your aunt bought you two Christmases ago—trust us, your skin won't thank you for that! We rounded up the six best bath products to add to your bathroom repertoire that will rejuvenate your skin, lower your stress levels, or help you sleep. Find out what they are below!

Pinot Grape Skin Bath Soak by Hunter Lab

Their products are made of natural, sustainable ingredients that target specific skin care needs—the fact that they look great sitting on your bathroom counter is just an added bonus!

Fur is a vegan, cruelty-free skincare company. Their luxurious bath drops are encased in a material made of seaweed instead of gelatine and will leave your skin feeling silky smooth.
