This citrus body scrub is such a ‘summer scrub, not only because it smells fresh and fun, but because it will help slough away that dry skin you might get from too much time in the sun (and pool)!  I think it is also awesome for underarms as it seems to keep my skin clearer with less ingrown hairs and  unsightly red bumps.
