6 Luxe Body Washes That Are Going To Make Your Bath Routine Super Indulgent


Last Friday at 7 pm, one of my girlfriends texted me and asked “What plans for this weekend?”

“Travelling for a family thing. A girl can’t catch her breath!” I replied.

As excited as I was to make a short domestic trip, I was also dreading losing two days of lazy self-care. Hello! That’s a working woman’s birthright. Between online classes and meetings, work, period cramps, gym days, zoom birthday meetups, painful waxing appointments, and whatnot, a girl can only depend on 2 things – a heavy flow tampon and indulging self-care.


My 20-something years of living an always anxious life have taught me to never underestimate the power of a relaxing spa day at home. This weekend, not only was I missing out on my pre-planned self-care sesh at home, but the day activities had me losing all the spa slots at the hotel. 8 pm on Sunday night before my red-eye, a cartoon bulb in my thought cloud lit bright with an idea. I rushed back to my hotel room and phoned in a couple of candles. Voila! Turns out that your basic at-home indulging baths can also become a DIY spa sesh in your hotel bathroom. Apart from your favourite scented candles and calming music, the hero ingredient to this magic hour recipe is a luxurious body wash.

During that unexpectedly calm late-night flight back home, I decided to make a list for you, besties. I gathered the names of all my personal favourite luxe body washes that have never disappointed me. So if you’re someone who is on the lookout for the ultimate upgrade to their bath routine, you might want to take a peek:
