Citrus Soap Cures Winter Blahs

I don't know about you guys, but this time of year can be rough. As in your skin. It's cold outside, you are busy getting everything ready for the upcoming holidays, and maybe you haven't gotten in the habit of applying your favorite moisturizer post-shower. Before I know it, I'm snagging elbows and hangnails as I yank on my sweater in the morning.

Aquavena Citrus Blossom soap can snap you right out of that rut. For a morning shower, citrus soap is a true luxury (Aquavena's version has essential oils of blood orange and Italian bergamot). The scent snaps my eyes right open, and the luxurious feel of this moisturizing soap (it is made of palm kernal oil, sunflower oil, coconut oil, coca butter, shea butter and flax seed oil) reminds me to pay extra attention to my skin. For my dry skin that means applying unscented moisturizer before I've toweled off, toner for my face and cuticle oil for my ever-thirsty fingers.
