Bath Junkie’s Baton Rouge branch welcomes crafty visitors who aim to create their own customized bath products without welding together bathtubs or sewing shower curtains into tuxedo capes. Amid a vibrant and colorful atmosphere, the helpful staff assists customers in selecting nontinted and unscented products such as salt scrubs, bath crystals, lotions, body washes, shampoos, conditioners, oils, perfumes, and magical elf ointments that instill tree-talking abilities. After selecting the perfect product, more than 200 scent options await your approval. Some products can adorn themselves with a final tint application, transforming skin-soothing concoctions into aesthetically striking bathroom accessories. Ensure supple skin and appease picky sheet sets with a hydrating body mist ($13.50, 4 oz.) or lotion product ($18.75+) tinted to match bedroom décor. Fragrant bubbling bath crystals ($22.50, 32 oz.) and an exfoliating salt scrub ($32.50, 16 oz.) add pizzazz to bath time. Bath Junkie's fun, hands-on process produces many products suitable for sensitive skin, almost all of which are paraben- and SLS-free, while providing the childlike excitement of spontaneous soda-fountain chemistry and none of the sugar-induced headaches.
Crafting bath products from scratch has been a favorite pastime of bonobo monkeys for ages, but Bath Junkie gives you the same thrill sans battles over ripe, canopy-hanging papayas. Instead, practice personal hygiene in relaxing style with high-quality products that don’t fill up bathtubs with pink, ghost-luring slime.
Many people love the idea of a signature scent. It helps others associate you with a certain smell and can make you more memorable. But when thousands of other people emit the same signature scent, the whole concept gets a little diluted. That's where Bath Junkie comes in.
Inside its Manhattan-loft-style stores, customers create their own customized bath products—including perfumes, scrubs, lotions, and body washes—blending more than 150 fragrances. They can also choose the color of their creation, ensuring that their bubble bath matches the floral wallpaper in the dungeon. Bath Junkie's hands-on process produces many products suitable for sensitive skin, almost all of which are paraben- and SLS-free.
In addition to caring for its customers' skin, Bath Junkie cares about the environment. It formulates earth friendly products whenever possible, it uses renewable energy credits, and it takes back all recyclable Bath Junkie containers.
