Do I really need a soap that contains ingredients that were used by the likes of Nefertity, the Queen of Sheba, and Jesus? After trying Kings & Queens Caspar Myrrh Showergel, yes, I believe I do.
The Kings & Queens product line is from the makers of Korres products (which I really like.)
Each shower gel, including the Caspar Myrrh, is named after a famous person from the days of yore. For the life of me, I couldn’t figure out which famous figure Caspar was the ghost of, (or why they spelled his name wrong), then I read the side of the bottle.
Turns out Caspar was one of the three Magi, and Myrrh was one of the gifts they gave to little baby Jesus. Back in the day, Myrrh had many medicinal properties and was valued almost as much as gold.
I had no idea that the Burger King was one of the Magi.
While this soap does come in a plastic bottle, which I don’t like, at least this one has a #1 resin code, so it’s recyclable.
Kings & Queens Caspar Myrrh left my skin feeling super soft and smooth. And I love the smell - kind of cinnamon-y with a slight hint of dark chocolate and something that smells vaguely like an ingredient in a men’s colognes (Myrrh perhaps?) Needless to say, it’s a very unisex scent. Plus it lingers a really long time.
Then I’m slapped back to reality when I see my cat standing in front of her litter box, waiting for me to scoop it.
