Simplify Your Shower With A Skin-Scrubbing Soap

As much as I love indulging in all things beauty, I kind of hate showering. I like being clean, but I resent having to get wet in order to get there, so I try to bathe as fast as possible. As a result, I often skip some of the biggest beautifying steps, like exfoliation.

Being a soap fanatic, I was really excited to hear that Portico's delicious new Blood Orange + Jasmine collection included not one but two bulky bars. And one of them not only enables my addiction, it also exfoliates while I wash.

The Refiner Scrub Soap is a shea-based bar filled with soothing aloe juice, nourishing almond oil, and organic antioxidants like grapeseed, olive leaf and pomegranate. As these ingredients replace grime with nutriment, particles of oat bran and rice germ slough skin into a softer, smoother state.

I love that this two-in-one wonder lets me fly through my morning shower without neglecting my skin, which is left smelling fruity and fresh.
