Drew: So here you have a pomegranate martini facial, correct?
Roshet: That sounds good.
Christine: Absolutely and that smells wonderful as well. But the benefits that come from using the pomegranate is that it is loaded with antioxidants as all of these masks are. And that’s the major issue in helping to battle aging. But the other benefit that we’re going to do is that the skin of color. The skin of color can be extremely sensitive and so when you're working with skin of color you want to use ingredients that are going to be more compatible and that are not going to irritate and one of the issues with skin of color is the pigmentary disorders. And so with using the pomegranate, the pomegranate’s benefits is going to reduce the inflammation that is triggered by the environmental assaults. How do you feel? How does that feel?
Roshet: It’s very refreshing.
Female: Does it smell like pomegranate?
