Indulge Like "Kings & Queens"

Being a graphic designer myself, I'm always on the lookout for products with beautiful packagings. My philosophy is "good things come in good packages". If a company cares enough to make its product look good, it won't let the quality suffer either. So when I saw these beautifully designed shower-gel bottles at Nordstrom, I was instantly attracted.
This newly launched "Kings & Queens" body-care line is a Nordstrom exclusive. It includes shower-gel, body milk, and body butter. All the products are enriched with a mixed fragrance of Pomegranate, Blue Egyptian Lotus and Malachite. I was totally blown away by the the incredible scent. The show gel actually comes in 9 different flavors: myrrh, vanilla pear, jasmine, lime, honey, lemon flower, myrrh, mango, cedar and cinnamon orange, each properly named after a king or queen in the history. For instance, cedar is for King Solomon, honey is for Queen Nefertiti, lime is for King GeorgeIII, etc. (I thought this idea was kind of fun, as most of us do sometimes fantasize ourselves being a king or queen.) The formulas for this line are so rich, and skin-silkening, not to mention they are paraben-free and mineral oil-free. As the nice packaging is a treat for the eyes, I think taking a shower with a yummy scent and velvety feel would be even more pleasant.
Oh, did I mention the prices are incredibly pleasant too? The shower gel is $9 each; the body milk is $11; and body butter is $15. For a little bit of money, we can indulge ourselves like "Kings & Queens".
