Our 5 Favorite Soaps for Spring

meet your new favorite bar of soap soapsfeature
By now you know that bar soap isn’t what it used to be. You can get it infused with your favorite fancy fragrance, enriched with luxe skincare ingredients, and even packed with scrubby bits to smooth out the rough bits while it cleanses. It’s this last category that we’re interested in now. After a few long months of winter (okay, it was pretty mild), the warming weather is going to mean shedding all the layers, both clothing and skin. It’s gross but you can’t start wearing less while exposing scaly skin. So we’ve rounded up five soaps that do double-duty: They clean and exfoliate.
