With the nights pulling in and the cooler temperatures kicking through, save yourself some pennies this autumn by creating your own spa day at home with these 34 affordable yet luxury products.

We’ve put together an edit of our favourite bath and skincare brands, essential oil specialists and cosy homeware heroes to help you build your own at-home spa sanctuary.

From H&M’s signature waffle dressing gown to the new bath specialists to know about, read on to find out our favourites.

Arm yourself with a number of comfies

From cotton white towels to H&M’s signature waffle dressing gown, cosy up with a selection of luxury comfies to really eke out the luxurious spa feel. 

To really bring the spa to your home, you’ll need to invest in some of the luxuries that make spas so special, and this includes swapping out your rugged dressing gown and over washed towels for some statement sets. 

The White Company boasts a selection of at-home spa essentials that you can easily add to your collection, from a spa towel headband to the iconic spa essential: waffle slippers. We also love Zara’s set of cotton towels with the light turquoise lace trim. Sleek but stylish.

Set the mood with essential oils

The first thing you notice about a spa upon entering is the soft, aromatic fragrance wafting through the steamy air. Recreate the effect at home with an electronic oil diffuser. They’re super simple to set up and will flood your house with a fresh scent of luxury essential oils. 

Look to Neal’s Yard Remedies for a great selection of fragrances and blends; we love their earthy Aromatherapy Blend or play it simple and fragrance your room with fresh lavender.

Indulge in a luxury selection of bath goodies

Nothing screams relaxation more than a steaming hot bath. Go the extra mile and indulge in a selection of luxury bath goodies. 

From Lush’s new Christmas bath bomb range to Olverum’s nourishing bath oils, invest in some staple pieces and you’ll never want to come out.

Mask up with our favourite face masks

One thing that’s essential is investing a face roller. These little gems will help tackle your under-eye circles, wrinkles and any acne issues you may have, all while softly massaging your face. 

While you take a soak in the bath, pop on your favourite face mask. Check out our guide to the best face masks on the market, from energising creams to the glow infusing sheet masks.

Wind down with these massage oils 

No spa experience is complete without a full body massage. If you’re lucky you’ll be able to enlist the help of your partner to give a helping hand in creating the experience at home. All you need to do is arm yourself with a massage oil that suits your skin type.

We love Aesop’s Geranium Leaf Hydrating Body Treatment, perfect for dry and tired skin.
