This holiday season, Kiehl’s Since 1851 continues its philanthropic tradition. We are proud to collaborate with New York-based designers Jeffrey Costello and Robert Tagliapietra and launch our 7th Annual Limited Edition Crème de Corps Holiday Collection, featuring custom art designed by the award-winning duo. 100% of Kiehl’s net profits from this limited edition collection, up to $100,000 will help provide 1,000,000 meals to families this holiday season through Feeding America, the nation’s leading domestic hunger-relief charity.


One of the amazing items you can get this holiday while helping Kiehl’s campaign to Feed America is the amazing Creme de Corps Soy Milk & Honey Whipped Body Butter. As you can see from the pictures this looks more like frosting than lotion. It smells like heaven and the creamy, whipped texture looks and feels amazing.

While this is a nice whipped body butter it still absorbs right away with no residue and leaves my skin hydrated and smelling amazing. Grab one for yourself or for someone special this holiday.

Cool Weather Skin Protection


I love Fall its one of my favorite times of year. The one thing I don’t love is how the cooler temps and wind can leave my hands and skin dry, itchy and just downright icky looking. Here are two great products I have been using as the temps drop and winds have picked up. They will definitely be Fall and Winter staples for me.

This ain’t your momma’s hand cream! Kiehl’s Ultimate Strength Hand Salve is the cure for even the driest hands, and I don’t know how or why I lived through a winter before without it. When I first read the name I thought this was going to be a bit too heavy, but its a thick rich lotion that is easy to apply and absorbs right away and doesn’t leave a residue. The best part is how quickly it hydrates my skin and my skin stays soft and smooth all day even after repeated hand washing.

If you are prone to dry skin in the cooler months don’t miss out on this products. Its also would make a great gift for anyone in your life who works in industrial work, manual labor or the gardener in your life. It’s a must have for Fall and Winter. And when you purchase this limited edition tube 100% of the profits goes to AMFAR, the foundation for AIDS research.

The vanilla scent is amazing, very rich and warm and leaves my skin smelling great all day. This works wonders on even the driest elbows and heels and all the spots in between.

New! Kiehl’s Daily Reviving Concentrate

20150928_115123 (2)

With combo skin that tends to get very shiny I always have a pang of fear before applying any oil based product. While my mind knows the benefits of high quality oils I still get the panic of oil leads to more grease.  Kiehl’s new Daily Reviving Concentrate put my fears to rest and proved how great oils can be for even shine prone skin. I have been using this daily for just over 3 weeks and love the results.

First thing I noticed was how great this oil smells, a light citrus that is so refreshing in the morning. There is a small dropper you use  and just a drop or two is enough for full coverage, one bottle will go a long way. The oil is very light and absorbs instantly, there is no residue or greasy feeling. After the first use my skin felt hydrated and smooth and I noticed as the day wore on I didn’t get my usual mid day shine. After a few weeks  my skin feel amazing and looks much firmer and more radiant. This will remain a part of my daily routine.

New! Kiehl’s Sun Protection in 3 new formulas

This summer, Kiehl’s Since 1851 proudly introduces 3 NEW sun-protection formulas, ensuring both face and body are fully protected until the sun sets! I’ve attached press releases for more details and hi-res images are in the links at the bottom of this e-mail, and the line-up includes skincare for daily use, for eye protection, and for active or beach use:


A must have for summer. I love this ultra thin lotion it absorbs quickly, smells great and leaves a matte finish on my skin. Perfect for my combo skin this paraben free sunscreen doesn’t feel greasy or make me break out. I use this prior to my makeup everyday to create a great base that feels good and protects my skin from sun damage.

Super Fluid UV 50ml
First up, for daily use: an improved formula of Kiehl’s Super Fluid UV Defense Sunscreen SPF 50+, a lightweight paraben-free formula that’s silky, non-greasy and leaves a matte finish on the skin. This formula is made for daily use, and creates a matte base alone, or under makeup, and is an efficient addition to your morning skincare regimen, ensuring that you’re protected every day. $38-$61.


Keihl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Circle Perfector wears like a BB cream. The formula is super light and blends easily. The touch of color instantly brightens my under eye area. The caffeine helps reduce the puffiness and dark circles. Between long summer nights and allergies this has been a lifesaver. It’s a great concealer that leaves my eyes looking brighter and more awake and not made up. On top of all that it has SPF  30 to protect my skin from sun damage!

Clearly Corrective™ Dark Circle Perfector with SPF 30
Instantly brightens and perfects the delicate eye area, reduces discoloration, and protects against future damage with SPF 30. The pigmented formula instantly brightens your under-eye area while shielding it from the sun’s damaging rays. Activated Vitamin C helps reduce the appearance of under-eye circles, while caffeine helps reduce the appearance of puffiness and dark circles. $38.


I usually opt for spray sunscreens as I find a lot of lotions are so heavy and don’t absorb well. Kiehl’s has changed my opinion with their Activated Sun Protector Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Lotion. Its so incredibly lightweight and true to its name feels more like water than a lotion.

The lotion is so thin and light it was a breeze to apply and didn’t leave any residue. And with Broad Spectrum SPF30 it provides unbeatable protection. I use this on my face and body its so lightweight and doesn’t cause breakouts or leave any sticky feeling. And along with protecting my skin it contains antioxidants to repair my skin while it protects. I won’t be heading outdoors this summer without this in my bag.

Activated Sun ProtectorTM Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Water-Light Lotion for Face and Body
Formulated with an advanced combination of sun-filters to provide broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection in a unique water-like texture that feels weightless on skin. Antioxidant Vitamin E helps condition skin, as the formula transforms to a water-like, weightless texture on skin, leaving it smooth, refreshed and protected.
