in recent seasons lemony fresh scents have been considered passe, in favor of more exotic scents, but this spring welcomes the return of citrus. three of my favorite citrus finds that have found a home in my shower and my heart:
1. mario badescu orange cleansing soap - this mild cream cleanser is perfect for my friable winter skin. this is currently my go-to face wash for am and pm -- it's so gentle that it cannot be overused. 8 ounces for $12.
2. sanitas lemon cream cleanser - with it's fine gritty texture, it's more of an exfoliatant. this is the twice a week brighten up treatment that's essential all year 'round, but in spring becomes vital. $29.
3. crabtree & evelyn citron, honey & coriander shower gel - this scent reminds me of the lemon cough drops i used to have as a child, but since i would request them when i was *not* sick, i have a positive association with it. $20.
