A Natural Dessert For Your Body Leaving Them Hungry For More...

Let them eat cake! A quote Marie Antoinette supposedly said when she found out French peasants had no bread to eat due to famine in the country at that time period. Cake was enriched with butter and eggs making the young Princess sound oblivious and unsympathetic.

Although that comment can't be confirmed, it is a well known fact that cake is made richly with the luxuries of butter and sugar and very much the opposite of bread. This  perfectly describes the natural body lotion I had the privilege of experiencing this week that did in fact made me feel as elegant as Marie Antoinette...minus the calories of actual cake :)

J.R. Watkins: Apothecary Hand & Body Lotion in Lemon Cream was the ultimate pleasure sensation that made me feel guilty as I slathered the product on. The scent indulges my senses and I smell as yummy as a real lemon cake! I couldn't believe how much scent there was considering it is 99.2% natural. I usually have a thing about natural and organic products...I don't think they work. I was shocked by how well this lotion not only smelled, but felt! The lotion was very creamy and not thin or runny like I assumed a natural lotion would be. It absorbed well into my skin and lasted all day...the scent of lemon all day does make one hungry for lemon cake...hah, don't say I didn't warn you! 

This is the perfect treat for summer days and is bound to make you simply irresistible, just like real cake is ;) I would consider this lotion a mix between kryptonite and Love Potion makes the oposite sex weak and helpless while also radiating a strong force of attraction and cravings...they will be no match for this lotion! 

This rich formula provides deep, long-lasting moisture that leaves skin naturally smooth, soft and nourished. Our formula contains more than 10 natural oils and extracts to protect and pamper even the most sensitive skin.

    I have to say, from a designer's stand point, I love the old timey label and bottle choice. They are bringing the "snake oil" and classic pharmacy look back on the scene... NICE! :)

    I am running low on lip balm, I am going to order from them and see how I like it!
