The most popular brands in the fitness space are no longer in the grocery store.
But that’s not stopping some from looking to the supermarket for the best alternatives.
For one, there’s the Wal-mart bathing suit.
“Bath bomb recipes have been around for years,” says Jennifer Boudreau, an instructor at The North Face in Minneapolis.
“A lot of people are really into the idea of ‘what can I put on my body to look like a different person?'”
That said, Boudrie says you need to use the product in moderation.
“You want to avoid getting it in your eyes,” she says.
“If you do get it in there, it’s probably not going to be as good.”
A simple, inexpensive alternative to traditional products, the bath bomb works by attaching the item to a sponge, which you can then use to rub on your skin.
“It’s a great way to get the job done in a short amount of time,” says Bouds, who recommends the product as a way to “breathe, not get sweaty.”
(To make a bath bomb, simply add a little bit of water to a bowl and let it sit overnight.)
For best results, use it in the shower, says Broussard.
The company’s bath bomb is made with coconut oil, which has been shown to help with the drying of the skin.

Boud’s favorite, the Walmart Bath Bomb, is an easy-to-use, water-repellent solution that is ideal for anyone wanting to wear a bathing suit in public.
If you want a more practical option, Brousard suggests trying the WalMart version.
“For the first time in my life, I actually like the product,” she said.
“The ingredients are very similar to the ones you’d find at a beauty supply store.
I have a hard time finding them anywhere else.”

“I think the thing that Wal-marts has done with the product is really to get people to think about it in a new way,” she continued.
“They’ve made it a little more accessible, and also a little less expensive.”
Boudria’s Walmart bath bomb also has a unique ingredient: the walnut oil.
“Wal-mores walnut is the only walnut you can get in the US,” says Livia.
“This oil has a very rich, nutty taste that you can taste from a distance.”
While the walnuts are good for a healthy snack, Livia also says the oil has an anti-inflammatory effect, which can help with dry skin and prevent sunburn.
Brouson recommends adding some of the walmores oil to a glass of water and mixing it with a bit of your favorite cleanser or moisturizer.
“That’s going to help prevent the drying up of your skin,” she recommends.
