Summer's Best Citrus Products, The Skincare Edition: Mario Badescu, Darphin and Bobbi Brown

From big, juicy oranges to tangy lemons and limes, summer means one thing to me -- citrus-scented products. Discover all of my favorites in this series!

I have a new skincare regimen thanks to this series, and honestly? My skin couldn't be happier. Three fabulous products have made their way into my life and I really don't know how I've lived without them until now. Check them all out after the jump.

Lemon, grapefruit and seaweed extracts combine with aloe vera gel to make skin GLOW. Simply pour a bit onto a cotton ball, swipe across your skin, and you'll be amazed at the difference in just a matter of days. My pores have never been cleaner!

I love the black lid inlaid with a signature crest, and the shape of the tub is so unique. But once I actually patted this divine grapefruit-and-geranium-scented primer/moisturizer to my skin? My life was changed forever. Shea butter hydrates and softens, Vitamin A Complex and carrot extract minimize fine lines and wrinkles, and Vitamins C and E protect against environmental damage. Best of all, my skin is completely refreshed and healthy-looking.

Darphin Tangerine Aromatic Care ($70 at My new favorite part of getting ready for bed? Definitely this beautiful little bottle. After opening, I breathe in the aroma of zesty tangerine and then pour a dime-sized amount into my palms. After warming in my hands, I very gently pat it into my skin. It does leave behind a greasy finish, but actually ends up imparting a glow that lasts into the next day. My skin has never looked fresher.
