A few years ago I was lucky enough to go to the Mayflower Inn in Washington, CT. The Inn is beautiful and I went on challenging trail runs, and got amazing massages.  The best thing about my trip, however, was that I got introduced to Red Flower bath products.  They had the “Icelandic Moonflower” bath and shower gel in the room and I became obsessed.  The scent is clean, fresh and not at all perfume-y or overpowering. I bought a bottle of it before I came home and used it in the shower every day. I now buy six bottles at a time on either www.beauty.com or at Barney’s NY and love it.  I realized that it was running out really quickly about a year ago, and found out that my husband starting using it too!  They also make a shampoo and body lotion in the same scent if you want to go for the overall Icelandic Moonflower experience.  Do you have a bath gel that you are obsessed with or do you switch around to try new things?
