It’s the most wonderful time of the year, Christmas in July with Kiehl’s and NKPR. I had the honors of attending Kiehls A Wonderland of Giving Event where I got a sneak peak of what’s to come for the holiday season in gift giving.
As soon as I walked in I was greeted by a sleigh filled with Kiehl’s gift boxes and was encouraged to get a picture by it and share on social media, for every picture that was uploaded Kiehl’s would make a donation to the Canadian Association of Pediatric Oncology, now isn’t that what the holidays are all about… giving back!
The beautiful Samantha from NKPR and myself!
This year Kiehl’s has partnered up for their 5th Annual Limited Edition Holiday Collection with New York City graffiti guru, Eric Haze. Haze has been creating artistic imagery for over 30 years, first recognized in the early 80’s for his NYC graffiti art scene, but also well known for his custom artwork for The Beastie Boys, L.L. Cool J and MTV. He’s also created limited edition sneakers for Nike and New Balance, established a clothing line of street wear, but this is his first time working with a skincare line. The packaging, bags and gift boxes will be original designs by Haze in bright, colourful and fun, in true holiday colours.
Crème de Corps, an enriched, nurturing body treatment that’s formulated with Beta- Carotene, Squalane and nurturing oils is one of the most hydrating body moisturizers in the Kiehl’s line, that will leave your skin soft, smooth and hydrated all day long. Retails for $37.50 for 250ml or $62 for 500ml.
Ultimate Strength Hand Salve is enriched with a blend of botanical oils that will sooth, moisturize and condition the skin while protecting against and repair the appearance of dryness caused by the harsh elements. It retails for $27.50 for 150ml.
Ultra Facial Cream is one of my favourites, as it’s lightweight, hydrates for 24 hours and leaves the skin supple and helps reduce moisture loss. It retails for $32 for 50ml.
Kiehl’s Limited Edition Crème de Corps Soy Milk and Honey Whipped Body Butter (which although we did see, were unable to share with our followers as it’s not quite finished yet) will help benefit Canadian Association of Pediatric Oncology Camps, as 100% of the net proceeds from the sales will be donated to them. Since 2010, Kiehl’s Gives has raised over $800,000 for children’s causes through its holiday initiatives, so I suggest if you’re going to buy any gifts this year, you should take a closer look at this Body Butter. It retails for only $45 for 226g, but it’s the gift that keeps on giving.
As I walked around the table, where mini Christmas trees were hung with Kiehl’s Lip Balm as tree ornaments, I couldn’t help but start my Holiday list already. They have something for everyone on your list, be that men, women, children and even your pets; all perfectly wrapped in Limited Edition Kiehl’s x Haze gift boxes. You also have the option of customizing your own gift sets, personalizing it with Kiehl’s products of your choice.
Travel Kit’s make the perfect gift without breaking the bank, perfect for co-workers, secret Santa or teachers. Who doesn’t need a good lip balm in the cold, dry, Canadian winter? The Kiehl’s Lip Balm Kit contains 4 of their number one selling lip balms, that can either be gifted as the pack or broken up and given out individually.
Kiehl’s Men’s Starter Kit is the perfect mix of essentials to keep him clean, energized and moisturized with its Ultimate Man Body Scrub Soap, Facial Fuel Energizing Moisture Treatment, Ultimate Brushless Shave Cream, Facial Fuel Energizing Face Wash and Ultimate Strength Hand Salve.
Kiehl’s Daytime Face Care Kit includes Ultra Facial Cream, Powerful Strength Line Reducing Concentrate, Ultra Facial Toner, Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Reducer, Ultra Facial Cleanser all in an exclusive canvas Kiehl’s travel bag.
Looking for younger skin by morning, Kiehl’s Nighttime Face Care Kit includes Midnight Recovery Concentrate, Midnight Recovery Eye, Rosa Arctica, Powerful Strength Line Reducing Concentrate, Ultra Facial Cleanser all in an exclusive canvas Kiehl’s travel bag.
Here are a few more gift ideas that of course can be customized to your liking.
It’s never too early for candy, right? Even though it was 10 in the morning, I couldn’t help myself in testing out some of these yummy treats.
A huge thank you to NKPR and Kiehl’s for my amazing take-home goodies, now the question is… do I keep it for myself or gift it?
