Bubble bath for a man

I know that the nature of a good bubble bath is not determined by your sex, but I'd like to get DH something this Christmas to make his baths a bit more luxurious. Nothing that's ultra-expensive or he'll never use it, but something a bit better than the usual supermarket own brand in our bathroom cupboard.

Can anyone recommend something that a male in their life particularly enjoys?

Molton brown?

Mine loves Snow Fairy by Lush grin

I was also going to suggest Molton Brown.

QVC might have some deals.

I tend to get my DH molton brown silver birch bath sand as he likes long baths. It smells amazing!

DH is sporty and enjoys bath salts rather than bubble baths to ease his achy muscles. Lots of fancy bath salts out there. Anything with Dead Sea in the title seems to appeal grin

My DH gets Molton Brown Black Peppercorn and Silver Birch in his stocking every year - and he smells delicious wink

Body shop have some nice ones that my DH likes.
Technically not “men’s” bubble bath, but a lot of the specifically male ones don’t smell very nice.

Molton Brown pink pepper is nice, you don’t need much and it can be used as a shower gel or bath foam.

We tend to use bathsalts more than bubbly stuff.

I got some Molten Brown birch bath soak in their outlet recently for £9.99. If you search birch on their website, it was reduced there too but for some reason didn't come up under the general sale listings.

L'Occitane Verbena bubble bath is a nice treat too if you can find it on offer.

Sorry, should have checked first, I don't think the silver birch bath salts are on the MB website any longer, they must have sold out.

Thanks everyone, these are all great suggestions!

I was just looking at bathbombs shaped like console controllers on etsy if they might be of interest.

Molton brown

My DH loves the Neom de-stress bubble bath.

jay55 Sat 21-Nov-20 18:28:02

Not particularly fancy but my dad loves badedas

JMG1234 Sat 21-Nov-20 18:34:44

My grandma liked Badedas too, love the smell of it!

Oysterbabe Sat 21-Nov-20 18:39:15

I was looking for the bath salts I bought DH from here. The one I got was stress relief but they seem to only have this one now. It's lovely anyway.

Men use any sort of bubble bath, surely? My son has always loved long baths and uses any bubble bath that he is given. I've bought him a few bottles of Radox to go under the tree and some others. They don't have to be 'posh' ones as long as they don't remove the top layer of skin. I bought someone else a lovely one in a car novelty but I belt the bubbles are no better than Radox or Imperial Leather.

I was going to say badedas but everyone has went higher end with Molton Brown!

Mines a big kid and it's a standing joke that he has Mr Matey .... so does my nearly 21 year old son 😀

Twinkie01 Sat 21-Nov-20 19:02:20

Milton Brown do a lovely bath soak in a metal bottle which I buy my male relatives.

Another vote for Badedas here.

Not keen on Molton Brown here, smalls nice but a bit drying.

DH's fave is Lush Snow Fairy.. though I'm sure you could find some more manly ones there too.

ProperVexed Sun 22-Nov-20 17:14:24

My DH, and my two young adult DSs will only use Mr Matey!

ProperVexed Sun 22-Nov-20 17:14:54

Ooh, cross post with Pinky
