9 Refreshing Summer Shower Gels


When summer days on the beach leave us covered in sunscreen, sand, and salt, there’s no better way to end the day than with a long, luxurious shower (indoor and outdoor both work). Though we learn to embrace that sweaty, beachy smell long enough to watch the sun set behind the ocean or the sweltering humidity of city life, we also look forward to rinsing it all off with a invigorating shower gel. Whether you prefer citrus or spice, be sure that one of these yummy gels finds its way onto your shower ledge this summer. Each of our picks provides light moisture, a great scent, and the perfect ingredients for a rejuvenating post-beach shower.
