Summer is almost at its sunset, and with that comes memories for me of everything aquatic and in full bloom: gerber daisies, fresh sweet grass, brilliant sunsets and the familiar desire to live under the ice-cold waters of the shower.
It's true that I will miss taking cool baths and sniffing shower gels that contain cool, floral scents, but I am determined to carry three precious shower gels with me and use them---very sparingly--well into fall. These three shower gels have been some of my favorites throughout the Summer of 2013. Like chocolate truffles with dark ganache centers or port wine reserved only for special occasions, these shower gels will give your skin a gorgeous surprise and most importantly--remind you of summer--when you use them.
Shower gels are the more summer-y versions of the wash, and almost every shower gel on the beauty block is pH balanced for your skin. Because they are designed to cool the skin, they almost always carry the ingredient menthol, which gives your skin that refreshing, York Peppermint Patty kind of feeling.
For the fall season, I recommend showering with warmer shower gels with a stronger moisturizing component, but there's no reason why you can't sneak these Three Musketeers into your daily routine.
