Everything You Need to Turn Your Home Into a French Spa
Given our rough start to 2020, we could all use some five-star pampering. Alas, the French spas of Paris and Provence will have to wait, so it's time to get creative. Turn your bathroom into a blissed-out temple of tranquility with these French-inspired home goodies. These spa items are everything you need for a day of total relaxation—no Air France booking necessary.
Parachute’s unbelievably soft 100% Turkish cotton robe will have you feeling like you’re lounging next to the gold-mosaiced pool at Hotel de Crillon.
Melt away all that cabin fever with this lavender bubble bath. Or as we like to think of it, South of France, bottled.
Reaching over the edge of the tub for your glass of wine or juicy page-turner and sloshing water over the floor is the opposite of soothing. Instead, keep all your bath necessities neatly lined up in front of you on a teak wood caddy. It’s bath-time at its most civilized.
Organic coconut oil, shea butter, sugar, Moroccan rose oil—one scoop of this blissful body polish smells like a French garden and dissolves rough patches to make skin feel like silk.
There’s a reason Me Time and Tea Time sound so similar. Take out a china cup and treat yourself to a warm mug of Marie Antoinette Ceylon black tea, made from rose and apples grown in a Versailles garden.
Patting on French-girl favorite Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentre is the skincare equivalent of snuggling up into the cushiest down comforter ever.
The only difference between Serena & Lily’s cushy waffle slippers and the ones you’ll find in spas at luxury French hotels? You can actually get these in your size.
The French mindset is all about mini portions of pure decadence, so no spa day would be complete without a bite or two of sweet treats. Our vote goes to Laduree’s decadent assortment of macarons. This Parisian sweets-maker dates back to 1862, so they’ve had a long time to perfect the recipe for every flavor.
Moisturizing Face Mask
French cult-fave beauty brand Nuxe has nearly 40 spas around Paris and throughout France—every one of them on our #GoLater bucket list. For now, though, we’re getting our fix with Nuxe’s luxurious Creme Fraiche de Beauty Mask. The moisturizing mask leaves our skin dewy, soft, and refreshed—like an eraser on our worry lines.
Fresh Bath Towels
Post bath, cocoon yourself in pure organic cotton courtesy of Boll & Branch’s thick, yet feathery oversize towels. You may never put your clothes back on again.
Warming towel racks are exactly the type of miniature luxury the French do so well. And once you pop out of a bath or shower into a toasty towel at the ready, you’ll be spoiled for anything else. Our favorite version is this chic and discreet towel warmer.
Ooh la la! Necessaire’s plant-based The Body Wash starts as a cool cross between a gel and an oil and massages into a rich foamy lather. The result? Unbelievably soft skin with just a sexy hint of sandalwood.
Dot your face with this gentle cleansing oil from Avene Eau Thermale—a French skincare line base on thermal spring water sourced in Avene, France. This formula is chock full of amino acids and vitamin E. We love that it glides across fingertips, perfect for a little massage around your temples.
A glass of vin rouge can go a long way in the self-soothing department. Since you’re probably not visiting the wine shop these days, consider signing up for a service like Winc for home delivery. Keep it on theme with these French bottles.
This velvety shea butter lotion glides on with ease to soothe and soften stressed skin. Spiked with honey and apricot and coconut oils for added hydration, L’Occitane’s pump-bottle cream is a great pick for the side of your sink.
The act of lighting a candle is so simple and comforting—it’s like tucking into a French bistro for coq au vin on a dreary day. Treat yourselves to this Diptyque’s 34 Le Redoute for both its scent, an enticing mix of flowers and spice, and its very French terre mêlée (mixed clay) jar.
Essential Oil Diffuser
Channel the lavender fields in Provence by shaking two or three drops of lavender essential oil into this ceramic diffuser. The only scent more classically French is the buttery aroma wafting from a creperie.
Who doesn’t want to be swaddled right now? The Aquis hair turban has loads of practical features—it reduces frizz and hair breakage. But we love the way it wraps up your locks and provides a cushion on the back of your neck for tub time. All in all, this chic turban is a huge upgrade over the disposable plastic shower caps provided by hotels.
