I feel like you guys know by now that I love Lush and I adore their bath products. In about 90% of the cases when I take a bath, I actually use a Lush product. Maybe even 95% of the time. But every now and then I do like to use something else. Sometimes just because Lush is really expensive and I’m not planning on taking a long bath so I feel like it’s a waste (I mean, let’s be real. If I’m dropping a 6€ bath bomb in there, I ain’t getting out for at least 40 minutes), but sometimes also just because I can. And in today’s post I’m going to talk to you guys about other or alternative bath products I like to use in my bath. So if you’re interested in reading about that, make sure you continue reading this post!
The first thing I like to use in my baths is a Treacle Moon Bath and Shower Gel. About five years ago I was completely head over heels with the Treacle Moon products and I bought tons of them. Tons of huge bottles of product. And guess what, they’re still here. Because what person uses liters and liters of shower gel in such a short time? I know I don’t.
Now that I’m really into bathing I’m actually glad I still have so many bottles of Treacle Moon. My favourite scents are by far the Iced Strawberry Dream, The Raspberry Kiss and Warm Cinnamon Nights. These are actually the first three scents I ever bought and I still love them to pieces.
Anyway, these bottles of shower gel are really great for getting a nice scent and a lot of bubbles in your tub. The bottles are big so you don’t have to feel bad about used a lot of it in your bath and it makes the entire bathroom smell absolutely amazing. Okay, you won’t get the crazy bath-art that Lush does give you, but it does smell really darn good so I definitely think it’s a really great option to go for instead of going for Lush. Price-wise you’re getting a million more baths out of one of these bottles for less money than one bath with a bath bomb from Lush. Okay let’s not compare that, that makes me feel bad about buying so much Lush hihi.

Another great option to fill your bath with is the Rituals Bath Oil. They do have them from pretty much all of their scent ranges I believe. The one I have is from the limited edition collection from last year and it’s called the Ritual of Anahata. It’s a gorgeous and chic looking product and it comes with quite a lot of product in my opinion. You only need a couple of drops of this stuff to get the full effect in your tub, so a bottle of this will last you for quite some time. It’s a bit more fancy pancy and more pricy than the Treacle Moon is, but it’s definitely an amazing product.
The thing with this bath oil is that it adds a really strong and amazing scent to the entire bathroom. It might be even stronger than the usual Lush product. And it also makes the water super soft and hydrated. To be honest, after using this in your tub, you really don’t need any body lotion of sorts anymore. Your skin will be as soft as a brand new babies’ butt. That’s a bit weird and I’ve never touched a babies’ butt, but okay. Let’s move past this part of the post.
A great tip if you’re looking for a bath oil from Rituals: wait until they have their annual sale. I ended up getting my bottle on sale for like 7 Euro’s.

Another tip is the Zoella Beauty Bath Latte. Back in the day I was a huge Zoella fan and I bought literally everything from her beauty collection, including this Bath Latte. I didn’t use it a lot back when I bought it because I didn’t take a ton of baths, but these days I’m really into it. It’s not as extreme or strong as some of the other products mentioned, but it does have a very nice and clean scent to it. It’s a really fresh, milky scent that can really relax me and put my mind to rest. It’s also rather affordable looking at the amount of product you get and one bottle of this will last you for quite a while. I’m a fan!
Oh and by the way, Zoella does have a lot more cool bath products. She has bath salts, other scents of bath latte kind of things and much more. You should really give that collection a look if you like taking baths!
The next tip I have for you guys is from The Body Shop. Back in their Christmas sale I bought my first The Body Shop Bath Fizzer or bath bomb and I actually was surprised at how much I liked it. I didn’t take a picture of it because that exact product isn’t available right now, but lord do I regret that. I’m so impressed by how nice it smelled and how pretty it made my bath look.
But don’t be sad. The Body Shop has bath fizzers in their collection all year round. They actually do bath bombs and bath bubblers these days and there just €2 a pop. I have one in my collection right now and I can’t wait to give it a try. But if the bath bombs from the Christmas collection will return at some point, I’m sure I’ll stock up on that too!
I think that’s pretty much it for now. Those were my alternative bath product recommendations. I feel a little weird calling it alternative since I don’t think Lush is the standard. But for me it personally is so that’s why I went with that word.
Anyway, thank you guys so much for reading today’s post and be sure to let me know which non-Lush products you like to use whenever you take a bath!
