4 Spa-Worthy Products to Try at Home (and What Else Val's Loving This Month)
My bathroom, known before its renovation as the Tenth Circle of Hell, is now a heavenly landscape of calm and respite, like my own mini-spa. Soon a Saturday morning, I can usually be found relaxing on the new built-in shower bench, my face slathered in Origins Original Skin Retexturizing Mask with Rose Clay ($25; origins.com) to deep clean my pores. I'll soak and soften my feet in a frothy footbath of warm water and Soap Cherié Shower Oil in Morning Rose ($27; soapcherie.com), after which I'll lather up with a bar of the cheery-looking and sweet-smelling Wary Meyers Japanese Cherry Blossom Soap ($14; warymeyers.com).Post-shower: more skin silkiness with super-hydrating C. Booth 4-in-1 Multi-Action Passion Fruit Body Lotion ($10; ulta.com). Nirvana!
