TYOKI you’re more of a bath babe than a shower person

Sponsored by Bomb Cosmetics

Baths are basically like a massive hug when cramps strike, but why only save splashing about until your period arrives? BATHS FOR EVERYONE, ALL DAY, EVERYDAY.

When you’ve got the cutest bath goodies like Bomb Cosmetics’ mallows, melts and blasters, it’s hard to resist the lure of warm water (we’re loving the almost edible* ‘Field of Joy’ bath mallow in June’s bettybox).

So, in praise of the bubble-tub, here are the nine things you definitely know if you’re more of a bath person; ya’ll shower people are missing out…

1. Standing up for 10 minutes is way too much effort…

… but laying down for an hour is a great use of our time.

2. You’re not stewing in your own dirt, as some people claim…

… girl, I’m basking in the essence of me.

3. It’s actually okay to eat in the bathroom…

… and styrofoam takeaway boxes float!

4. You can mix bubble bath, regardless of their scents…

…wild raspberry, caramel creme and wake up peppermint weirdly work well together.

5. You’re more likely to be successful…

…you’ve got way more time to put the world to rights in a bath than shower.

6. You know how to multitask properly…

…relaxing, singing, cutting your nails and cleaning all at the same time takes some skill.

7. You’ll be favoured by your parents…

…there’s no need to blast Little Mix loudly over the noisy shower. Even though Dad is defo partial to a bit of ‘Shout Out To My Ex’.

8. You’re practically an athlete…

…a one hour bath can burn over 100 calories, according to Steve Faulkner, an exercise physiologist at Loughborough University who has an actual Ph.D.

9. You’re more economic than you think…

…there’s no wasted water casually going down the drain as you lather up. No drop goes unused!

Make bath time as luxurious as possible with a bath mallow from Bomb Cosmetics, available in this month’s bettybox and on their website.

*Okay, so it’s not edible, but it does look good enough to eat.
