Start by lighting a candle in your bathroom for a warm, moody light. We recommend Miller Harris Natural Wax Candle (£45) for a taste of real spa luxury. It’s high-quality, it looks chic and it’ll make your home smell lovely for days. Try the new ‘bois d’ epicerie’ fragrance if you fancy something a little festive for the winter months. This will fill your bathroom with scents of cinnamon, nutmeg, pine, cedar and clove, edged with a Seville orange tang.
Next, run the water to a temperature you feel comfortable with (preferably a little hotter if the room temperature is cool) and add to the mix a generous glug of Cinnamon Buns Shampoo, Shower Gel & Bubble Bath by Philosophy (£14).
Now it’s time to strip off those old clothes you’ve been wearing all day and sink back into the sweet, cinnamon-scented bubbles – bliss!
Once you’ve had your fill of deep breathing and closed-eye relaxation, you’ll be ready to get on with the all-important body maintenance. Your skin should be suitably soaked and soft by now, so grab your pastel pink Soap & Glory Exfoliating Scrub Gloves (£4), squeeze a little more Philosophy onto your fingers and gently massage your body. Gentle circular movements will stimulate blood flow and get rid of any dead skin for silky smooth softness all over.

The great thing about Philosophy bubble bath is that it doubles up as shampoo and conditioner, making hair washing in the bath super easy as all you need to do is massage the soap suds into your scalp and wash out with clean water from the shower head.
After a good scalp and body scrub, you’ll feel a little lighter and ready to tackle that inevitable winter covering of body hair.
For the newest in razor technology, we recommend Wilkinson Sword Quattro for Women (£6.49). With four blades for precision, a pivoting head for womanly curves and vitamin B conditioning strips for comfort, this bright pink high performance razor makes hair removal a doddle (and matches your pink exfoliating gloves!)

Following our recipe for the perfect bath, you’ll emerge from your bathroom as a new woman: relaxed, refreshed, conditioned, polished and smelling scrumptious!
