There's only one reason to post a photo of a body of water — be it an ocean at sunset, a pool full of
unicorn floats, or a bubbling bathtub — and that is to show that you are relaxing better than everyone else. (What doesn't convey that you're having the most well-deserved and stylish pamper sesh of all time? Black grout between tiles, murky water, Summer's Eve wash in the corner...)
Ahead, the products you need to convince your friends you're soaking in a tub far fancier than the one in your pre-war studio. As for faking that infinity pool shot on a tropical island, you're on your own.

Bath Foam, $21.00

Buy Oui Shave The Rose Gold Single-Blade Razor
Not only does your flimsy plastic razor look bad, it rusts, leaves your bikini line with red bumps, and lasts no longer than a carton of milk.
Ditch it and invest in a metal safety razor
. The price might make you flinch at first, but know this: You won't ever have to replace it. Like, never in your entire life.
The Rose Gold Single-Blade Razor, $75.00
Buy Omorovicza Soothing Shave And if you give a girl a fancy razor, she's gonna want a fancy shaving cream to go with it... which is where this beloved Hungarian brand comes in. The soothing cream combines anti-inflammatory properties of Hungarian minerals and the cooling quality of camphor and menthol. Yep, it's $30 but, it's so much more than a wash-and-go foam, you're supposed to massage the cream in for an ultra moisturizing finish after the shave. Omorovicza
Soothing Shave (5oz), $30.00
Buy Herbivore Coco Rose Body Polish Not a regular body scrub, but a therapeutic body scrub, this features virgin coconut oil and antioxidant-rich Moroccan Rose. It'll make your leg in your casual leg-sticking-out-of-tub-to-show-off-pedicure Insta look crazy silky smooth. Herbivore Botanicals
Herbivore Coco Rose Body Polish, $36.00
Buy Lush Ro's Argan Gourmet Soap The whole rose petals on the bed look is so cliché. If you want to hint to your followers that you're about to get engaged during your romantic long weekend in, smooth this decadent bar across your skin and snap a Boomerang as the rose petals spread through the water. Lush
Ro's Argan Gourmet Soap, $15.95
Buy Moroccanoil Dry Body Oil The only thing better than a body oil that doesn't leave slick streaks on your Italian leather sofa is one that also has a delicate scent inspired by the Mediterranean to make you smell like the type of person who flies to islands in private planes (even if your only destination right now is the couch). Moroccanoil
Dry Body Oil, $48.00
Buy Brooklyn Candle Studio Love Potion Candle
Taking a bath is an indulgent,
, so if you're going to do it, do it right. Carve out the time, pour the wine, throw your iPhone off a cliff, and then light a damn candle. This candle is a vegan, cruelty-free soy-based clean burn that's got none of the nasties and all of the exotic notes of jasmine blossoms, calming lavender, and mandarin.
Brooklyn Candle Studio
Love Potion Clean-Burn Candle, $24.00
