Every Christmas Kiehl's team up with a celebrated artist to create a charity collection of limited edition products.
This year, New York Graffiti Artist Eric Haze has designed the brand's limited edition product packaging, as well as having his graphics adorn their shopping bags and gift sets. Proceeds from the sale of the this collection sold in Ireland will go to Temple Street Children's Hospital.
And isn't nice to know when you buy a Christmas gift that you're doing something nice for more than one just person?
The collection includes Kiehl's much-loved body moisturiser for very dry skin, Creme de Corps, in its original and classic formula. It's a Kiehl's best seller (€31 for 250ml or €52 for 500ml) and is a very safe gifting option for anyone who likes their luxurious skincare.
Another variation is the utterly dreamy Creme de Corps Soy Milk and Honey Whipped Body Butter. The aroma and consistency of this rich, whipped butter is absolutely delicious. It's a great present for someone who doesn't deserve another tin of USA biscuits. Nobody is going to throw this back into their Christmas stocking. Again, Kiehl's is a luxury brand, so this bottle of the divinity will leave a €42 shaped hole in your wallet.
The final item in the collection is Kiehl's classic, hydrating Ultra-Facial Cream. This is a great moisturiser for dehydrated or oily and dehydrated skin, and will set you back €28 for 50mls.
My favourite aspect of buying Christmas gifts at Kiehl's is that they're delighted to help you customise a gift set of your choice. They're also notoriously generous with their fabulous samples so you can put together something very nice indeed even if you are operating on a budget.
And if you find yourself in there, have a gander at the new Super Multi-Corrective Cream - it's my holy grail moisturiser!
What do you think of body products as Christmas gifts, and do you find Charity collections festive or hokey?
