Kiehls x Haze Christmas Collab 2013

In the fifth annual Christmas collaboration, following on from the likes of Jeff Koons and Kenny Scharf, Kiehls have this time joined forces with Eric Haze, NY Artist of Beastie boys artwork fame. Four best selling products as well gift bags and boxes have been brightly adorned with Haze's signature style designs in the hopes of earning much needed funds for children's  charities worldwide. 

500ml: €52

Time after time when asked about my number one Holy Grail product I'll go back to Kiehl's Creme de Corps. Since long before I'd even heard of a blog, this Kiehl's wonder cream was on constant rotation in my house. It managed to tackle my KP with ease, literally changed my life because of it and to this day, remains one of the only brands that I would pay above the odds for because I know each product just works. 

To date the Kiehl's Christmas collabs have earned over $800k for children's  charities and this offering with Eric Haze at the helm hopes to add a healthy chunk to that total with all sales made in Ireland and the UK benefiting local children's causes. There will be more information in time about exactly how much is to be donated this time around but my last charity CdC purchase was for the Florence Welch collaboration and 100% of those net profits went directly to The Teenage Cancer Trust then. 

Creme de Corps 250ml: €31 - Soy Milk & Honey Whipped Body Butter 226g: €42

Although I picked up the large Creme de Corps on launch night, this here pot of Soy Milk & Honey Whipped Body Butter will be mine. I'm currently on my third tube of the body polish in the same scent and it truly is addictive. 

Ultra Facial Cream: 50ml: 28

In addition to Kiehl’s individual offerings, customers have the option of customizing their own gift sets, personalising their Christmas gifting with the Kiehl’s products of their choice. All gift collections, including custom gift-wrapping service with Limited Edition Kiehl’s Haze gift boxes, are available at Kiehl’s stores worldwide.

For more information on this and past collaborations, check out http://www.kiehls.co.uk/. Unfortunately the UK site no longer post to ROI but with stores on Wicklow St, Dublin, in Arnott's Department Store (& online here) and in Dundrum Town Centre, you can get easily your Kiehl's fix. (They're ridiculously generous with samples btw). 

Are you a Kiehl's Skincare fan? Any stand out products for you?

Great post! My brother got me a kiehls gift set for Christmas last year and i Love it! It had a body scrub,large size crème de corps,lip balm & a travel size ultra facial cream. Is there anything better than a box full of gorgeous body products on christmas day?! Last weekend treated myself to kiehls overnight bioligical peel & got a sample of their latest moisturiser ( purple tub,super corrective something or other) which is fab & makes my skin soft & plumpy!! Defo you going on the Christmas wish list!!
