Jenny McCarthy’s favorite room in her former home wasn’t a high-end kitchen or luxe living room: it was the simple spa-like bathroom with a giant tub.

“I take baths twice a day, because I need it,” McCarthy says in this video of the serene space, first published by PEOPLE in 2013. “My bathroom is my sanctuary.”

Although a soak in the tub at the end of a “long day being a mom,” is how the actress relaxes, you won’t find McCarthy spending the big bucks on her product picks.

“The products I like to use are anything I get from swag bags,” she says. “I haven’t bought bubble bath in probably seven years because I usually use whatever I get for free.”

McCarthy’s tub may be her favorite place to unwind, but the generously sized shower is a close second.

“It’s really spacious and it’s one of those showers that is a rain shower, and it also shoots you this way,” she says pointing up toward her body. “So you’re kind of getting some double action.”

While the bathroom has a modern feel with all the best amenities, McCarthy, 43, keeps the overall decor simple, with flowers acting as the main pop of color. “It’s just designed exactly the way I want it to be, serene and clean,” she says.

There’s one element, though, that McCarthy’s a little less thrilled about. “I’m not really that much of a fan of the tile,” she says.
