Quinoa is in fact not technically a cereal grain at all, but is instead what we call a "pseudo-cereal".
Botanically quinoa is related to beets chard and spinach, and in fact the leaves can be eaten as well as the grains. in the restaurant world, the National Restaurant Association named quinoa as the hottest trend in side dishes in its 2010 " WHAT'S HOT" survey of chefs.( Whole Grain Council )

As i was making a tomato base chicken casserole , i realised i had some quinoa in my cupboard and the Lovely People from Kiehl delivered me a gift to even out my skin. So my dinner is pretty much inspired by them,
Sam bought me a massive casserole that i literally throw everything in it and chuck it in the oven and its been a life saver when I'm so lazy to do the frying , washing and all the jazz.
With the extract of 2000 quinoa husks in each bottle, the formula is clinically demonstrated to increase surface skin cell turnover without irritation
Kiehl's scientists discovered quinoa's powerful skin exfoliating properties after they happened to see discarded husks bubbling with activity.
Excited to give this a try and would let you know how amazing is this product, I've been using their product for 7 years and i wouldn't be surprise that it would be just as amazing as the rest.
How pretty is their packaging that I would recycle it as a money box!
