Each has an assigned scent and personality so you can pick who best suits you.

The other characters include:

Each Bath Time Boyfriend pack comes with bath salts, a body sponge, a hair tie, and toe separators for 1,500 yen (US$13). The characters are also sold in individual bath salt packs, lip balm, and aromatherapy soap.

Bishōnen bath salts took a cue from Kantai Collection as the "Kaiji no Yu" (lit. Maritime Self-Defense Force Hot Baths) in 2014. Japan has also invented pigeon boyfriends, chewing gum boyfriends, and deli meat boyfriends.
