Is it just us, or does the cooler weather make everyone want to spend every night reading–or watching tv, we don’t judge–in a hot bath with a face mask on? We’re all about spending nights in for maximum self-care, and, if we do say so ourselves, we think we’ve gotten the ritual down to a science. Read on for our favorite bath, beauty, and lounge products for making an evening at home feel extra special.

Elevate your environment 

A good bath all starts with a good bathroom, and that’s where we have an exciting announcement for you: SN Bath just launched! Grab one of our chic, neutral fringed bath mats, put your hair up in our hair towel, and wrap-up afterward in our extra-cozy wrap towel. We even have a cute hooded towel for your minis! Trust us when we say these new products are so good, you might just find yourself running a bath every night.  

Set the mood

One of our favorite tips for an ultra-relaxing bath: dim the lights and rely on a candle. While we have a very exciting announcement along these lines coming soon, you know we’ve loved Literie’s candles for ages–and their new fall launch is no exception. If you’re in NYC, you can also shop some of our fave Literie scents at our Bleecker street store. 

Incorporate skincare

Step 1: Mask up 

There’s nothing better than luxuriating in the bath with a face mask on, and our favorite is a cult classic: Biologique Recherche Masque Vivant. Yes, you have to create an account and log in to purchase it (but if you’re in New York City or Philadelphia, you can also grab it IRL at Rescue Spa). It’s pricier than your average mask, but it lasts for over a year and the effects are insane. As Rescue Spa Founder Danuta Mieloch says on their site, “If you use Masque Vivant at least twice a week, you’ll never age.” And while that may be a slight exaggeration, the results are nothing if not magical. 

Step 2: Multitask 

This step involves a little bit of pre-prep, but it’s worth it. We know the typical logic is to take a shower after your bath, but we’re advocates for hopping in beforehand. Why? Because of the Crown Affair Cleansing Scrub. We love jumping in the shower and applying this gorgeous scalp scrub for a relaxing scalp massage moment that also happens to restore your hair’s scalp health and leave it shiny and gorgeous. Follow it with the Crown Affair's Renewal Mask, which you can leave on for the duration of your soak in the bath. 

Step 3: Oils are essential 

It’s not a bath without a good bath oil. We’ve been using Olverum, an iconic bath oil that’s been around since 1931, for nearly a decade. It’ll make you, your bath, and your bathroom smell heavenly, and it just so happens to moisturize like a dream, too. 

Step 4: Lock in the glow 

Generally, the steam that rises from a bath can help open your pores, so it’s a great time to apply your skincare. Our top pick for sealing in that post-bath glow? Merit Glow Skincare Serum. Packed with powerhouse ingredients, it’s coming soon, and we promise it’s worth the wait. 

Seal it with a set 

Once you’ve finished your bath routine and returned your SN hooded towel to its hook, there’s no reason you shouldn’t stay cozy. Hop into a pair of our classic sweatpants and matching hoodie, throw on a pair of shearling-lined Birkenstocks (in our estimation, better than any slipper), and you’re ready for your night. More of a robe person? We won’t judge you if you spend your entire evening in one of Parachute's cozy soft rib spa robes

There you have it–our fool-proof evening-in routine. We hope it makes you feel as good as it does us!
