How to Have the Most Luxurious (and Cheapest) Bubble Bath

Dr. Teal's Foaming Bath.

Oprah once said that she doesn’t take bubble baths, she has “bathing experiences.” “It’s an art form for me, bathing,” she said in an interview, where she described the lavender bath oil she discovered while antiquing in Provence. For everyone else who isn’t quite ready for a Gagosian-level bubble bath, consider Dr. Teal’s Foaming Bath. The milk-and-honey scent contains actual milk protein, the eucalyptus scent is nose-tingling, and the lavender version — while probably not sourced from France — smells lovely and therapeutic. I delight in this bath because a small capful yields a seventh-grade-science-experiment-gone-joyfully-awry amount of bubbles that last for over 30 minutes and leaves me with baby-soft skin that doesn’t require extra moisturizer. It’s not quite the Big O, but it’s one step closer to getting there.
