Hey Everyone!

I'm back from my mini-vacation! I found this amazing lotion when I was over in Kitimat at Shoppers Drug Mart. Its called Kings & Queens. I think it cost around $8.00, but it was worth every penny!! The scent is Cinnamon Orange, and it basically smells AMAZING! It should be called mood lift in a bottle! It is enriched with a mix of Pomegranate, Blue Lotus and Malachite.

Not only does Pomegranate smells delish, it has tons of other benefits! It carries excellent skin care properties including moisturizing, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. In promoting more rapid cell regeneration and rejuvenation, it delivers a powerful anti-aging effect as it helps the skin retain moisture and maintain proper circulation and hydration. It contains a host of powerful antioxidant components, which are responsible brightening or lightening the skin tone.

Blue Lotus... the only information I can seem to find on this, is that the Egyptians used to use it as some sort of high, and it was thought that it enhanced sexual gratification! Haha... I had to laugh and thought you might all get a chuckle out of that... other than that. I have no idea what else it is used for.

Malachite is thought to enhance the activity of glutathione, a tri-peptide considered to be the main cellular antioxidant and to defend the skin cells against oxidative stress – from environmental factors including ozone, UV rays, cigarette smoke etc.. Also interesting is the fact that Copper, the trace element present in Malachite increases the amount of elastin and collagen produced by the fibroblasts (collagen producing connective tissue cells).

Either way.. this lotion has a fresh smell with a spicy little kick to it! It also helps keep the skin nice and soft, and as far as I'm concerned its a must have!
