Love Lori Shower Foot Massage Scrubber

$14, amazon.com

Who doesn't love a good massage? This foot-scrubbing mat massages your feet as you stand in the shower. Its soft bristles scrub away dead skin and can help with circulation, according to the brand. It also helps fight athlete's foot and odor, and because it's silicone, it's very easy to clean. The suction cups ensure it stays put in your shower, and there's a loop to hang and dry it.

Maxsoft Scalp Massager Brush

$8, amazon.com

Not only does a scalp massage feel incredible, but it helps improve blood circulation and skin cell turnover. This handheld scalp massager doesn't require much pressure to make an impact, and it has over 50,000 five-star ratings from customers, plus an Amazon's Choice badge. Some users (including Real Simple writers) even credit it with giving them healthier-looking hair: "I feel like it really promotes hair growth. After using this product for a week and a half, I can see some changes in hair growth, shine, health, etc," a shopper said. Use it with shampoo to work up a lather.

Genteele Memory Foam Bath Mat

$13, amazon.com

Memory foam makes everything better. This memory foam bath mat has a velvet-like microfiber finish, and unlike a towel bath mat, it looks nice enough to leave on your floor 24/7. The absorbent mat is machine-washable and dryable, and it comes in several dimensions—the smallest size is 17 by 24 inches, the largest is 72 by 24 inches—and colors.

Wish Shower Foot Rest

$18, amazon.com

The next time you shave in the shower, use this footrest for balance. The heavy-duty aluminum piece can be screwed directly into your shower wall, so it's a lot stronger than a tool that uses suction cups or adhesive glue. When you're not using it, you can just fold it back onto the wall. Amazon shoppers who suffer from back pain, are pregnant, and who have arthritis or low mobility praise its effectiveness.

Polder Silicone Hot Sleeve

$10, amazon.com

Styling your hair with hot tools often involves not knowing where to safely set them down. But this pocket sleeve makes it so simple to put down your flat iron, curling iron, or styling tool of choice —just hook it on a towel rod. It's also a great place for your appliance to cool down once you're done. Plus, it's ultra-portable. "It's a hassle when I travel and can't pack my flat iron due to the heat. Upon my last work trip, I was able to get ready, put my flat iron in this, and go within half an hour," one customer said.

This fogless mirror goes directly in your shower for a closer view as you shave or do your skincare routine. It includes a small hook for your razor and swivels around 360 degrees. If you happen find its suction cup not strong enough, a sticker for extra suction is also included. At 7 by 7 by 4 inches, it's a good size for most showers.

Bambusi Bamboo Bathtub Tray

You've probably seen these all over Instagram. But bamboo bathtub trays aren't just aesthetically pleasing, they're also incredibly practical. This one can hold your tablet, your current book, a glass of wine, or whatever else you'd like to have in reach while relaxing in the bath. Customers especially like that it's adjustable. "It's secure enough to trust that your electronics won't take a dive into the water, and has a space dedicated to a glass of wine. It's so adjustable I can't think of a tub it wouldn't work with," one wrote.
