I love a good bubble bath with no lights on but several candles but Im trying to find a good bubble bath to buy?

I like Calgon but I want something better and the Calgon I use does not seem to produce bubbles. I would like a very soothing bath with lots of bubbles.

What do you like to use and anyone have one of those bath pillows?

Try putting some baking soda in the water--your water sounds like it's "hard" (lots of minerals keep bubbles from forming!) The baking soda will 'soften" the water a bit! Use about 1/4 cup!

To topic, I've been wondering why my bath products don't bubble up like they used to, might be what earlier posted stated about the hard water. Think I'll try the baking soda solution.

I use bath salts, along with a caress silk body wash.. I put the salts in and pour a cap full of the body wash under the faucet. I could never find a bath that actually formed bubbles either. I love my baths now : )

Yea, rarely but who doesnt like bubble baths? When I do take one, I know it sounds kinda ghetto but I try to stay low-budget when possible a squirt of my melon shampoo works just as good as some costly bubble bath stuff, it softens, smells good and most of all, still makes lotsa bubbles!

LOL

I have gone ghetto before with my bubble baths before nothing does bubbles like Palmolive.

I also have used epson salt and oatmeal baths for relaxation.

I LOVE bubblebaths! I use Mr. Bubble- something about that scent just relaxes me. Yummy. I've also used epsom salt- I hear its great for detoxifying. I used to use a line of bath cream from Vaseline- it came in a few varieties and it bubbled up just fine for me. I havent used it in a while and I'm not sure if they even make them anymore.

I found a Mr. Bubble Extra Gentle (no fragrance, or dyes) last time I was at the beach which bubbles up wonderfully, the bubbles form a thick layer very quickly and don't all pop in the first 10 minutes like a lot of them and it doesn't have a very noticable scent, which lets me add in peppermint oil for a fantastic bath
