This DIY is the ultimate package to lay back and relax with friends or have some alone time to put your feet up and unwind. It includes facial masks, bath bombs, and do-it-yourself mugs so the only thing you have to worry about is what kind of movie to watch with your relaxing night in.

  • 1/2 cup of oatmeal

Marbled Mugs
