Actors Ashley Judd and Anthony Mackie have teamed up with Kiehl’s Since 1851 to design a Limited Edition Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Masque series in honor of Earth Day. Made with fairly-traded Amazonian White Clay from the Marajo Island, the mask aims to detoxify skin and minimize the appearance of pores. The design of the packaging features Earth-inspired images, and depicts Judd’s and Mackie’s vision of social responsibility.
100% of net profits up to $50,000 from the campaign will benefit Recycle Across America™, a nonprofit that will use the funds to create 65,000 standardized recycling labels to offer to select K-12 schools in the United States.
“We started working with Recycle Across America in 2012 and have continued with them since,” said Chris Salgardo, President, Kiehl’s USA. “Their mission to introduce solutions that make recycling more simple, comprehensive and effective in the United States is perfectly aligned with our Recycle & Be Rewarded program.”
The mask retails for about $23.00 for 5.0 fl. Oz. / 45g.
As the holidays approach and we prepare to get together with our families to enjoy heaping plates on delicious food, it’s important to remember that not everyone is that fortunate. 16 million (1 out of 5) kids in America are currently living in households without consistent access to adequate food. And, many of these children rely heavily on school supplied meals for nutrition, making the holiday break a strenuous time when they will be without access to free and low-cost school meals.
In an effort to help end child hunger in America, Kiehl’s NYC is partnering with Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry Campaign, which works to ensure children in the United States have access to healthy food, every day. 100% of net profits, up to $100,000, from the sales of Kiehel’s new Creme de Corps Soy Milk & Honey Whipped Body Butter will benefit the campaign. For the first time, the body butter will available in two limited edition scents, grapefruit and coriander.
Through the campaign, just $1 can help connect a kid to up to 10 nutritious meals. The product is available for $38.00, so just ONE purchase can connect a kid to up to 380 nutritious meals!
The label art on the bottle was specially designed by Sofie Shore, the 11 year-old daughter of Share Our Strength co-founder, Debbie Shore. Sofie has been an integral part of the organization, traveling extensively with her mother so according to Kiehl’s USA president Chris Salgardo, “it was an easy choice to ask her to design a label to further raise awareness and funds for the cause.”
Creme de Corps Soy Milk & Honey Whipped Body Butter is available in-store and online now. See below for details.

Earth Day is on April 22nd, 2013, and to celebrate, Kiehl’s Since 1851 has partnered with superstars Zachary Quinto and Alanis Morissette to benefit Recycle Across America (RAA), a nonprofit dedicated to delivering society-wide solutions that eliminate public confusion, stimulate the environmental economy and expedite progress. Each celebrity designed a Limited Edition label for Kiehl’s 4.2 oz. Ultra Facial Cream, depicting their vision of social responsibility. The cream will be available in Kiehl’s stores starting April 20, just in time for Earth Day.

During the holidays, when you are looking for gifts for your loved ones, it’s also important to remember the people who may not be receiving anything for the holidays. This is why I always look for gifts that give back. For the fourth year in a row, Kiehl’s Since 1851 has launched its Limited Edition Creme de Corps Holiday Collection. This year, the company invited New York Pop artist Kenny Scharf to design the four-piece collection, which consists of a body lotion, body butter and limited edition collectible Kenny Scharf “Squirt.”
Up to $200,000 of net profits from the sale of all the items will support over 40 children’s charities worldwide. In the United States, 100% of the proceeds will benefit RxArt, a national nonprofit thatplaces original fine art in patient, procedure and examination rooms of healthcare facilities.
Kiehl’s Holiday 2012 collection is now available in-stores and on Kiehls.com. Stop by a Kiehl’s store near you to check out the amazing display of Kenny Scharf products, or snag one of the manyassortments of Kiehl’s gift sets for someone special.
Father’s Day is just a few short days away and, guess what? I still haven’t found anything to get my dad – a man who owns everything! And, I mean everything. For his birthday a few months ago, my sister and I pitched in to get him a Kindle Fire, so I’m not sure what present could possibility top that. Shopping for men is hard. For females, all we need is a gift card to a spa or favorite store, and we will all have smiles on our faces. But, men, they are tricky creatures. Anyway, here are a few fabulous options any day would love.
For his skin
Nowadays, men really are paying attention to their skin, and there’s nothing wrong with that! A good skin care regimen is something both men and women should have, because after all, the first thing a people notice about a person is their skin. Set your dad up for complexion perfection with Kiehl’s Sky Flyin’ Foaming Multi-Gel ($19),a foaming gel product enriched with bamboo, lemon and orange fruit extracts, that does double duty as an effective cleanser and shave gel in one.
For his job
Get dad an ultra-functional bag to easily transport his work necessities to and from home. This water-resistant Modern Waxed Canvas Messenger Bag by Brooklyn Industries is trendy, yet masculine. The bag features a padded laptop sleeve, flannel lined interior and three exterior pockets.
For his wrist
Give dad the gift of time, with a brand spanking new watch. If your dad is into bling, then he will love this Ecko Unlimited – The King Boxed Watch Set. The set comes with two link bracelets with crystal detailing to use with a stunning silver/black dial with 3-hand quartz movement.
For his feet
Give dad something soft and comfortable to slip his feet into after a long day at work. Acorn’s Men’s spa slippers contains memory foam that conforms to his feet for a super comfy feel. What I like the most about these slippers is that you have the option to personalize it with his initial.
Beauty brand Kiehl’s Since 1851, has skeletons in their closet. Well, okay, they don’t actually hide them in their closet, but skeletons are on display inside Kiehl’s thirteen New York metro area stores from June 2 through July 14th. The skeletons are a public art installation in celebration of the brand’s newest global program Meet Mr. Bones, a philanthropic partnership with celebrity influencers from all genres including Alicia Keys and PadmaLakshmi, who designed their own Mr. Bones for each store. For their participation in the project, $200,000 will be donated to organizations supporting Children, the Environment, and HIV/AIDS causes worldwide. At the end of 2012, each of the Mr. Bones created by their celebrity masterminds will be auctioned off to further benefit each charity.
Where did Mr. Bones come from? Mr. Bones, a life-sized teaching skeleton, became the brand’s mascot when founding family member, Aaron Morseduring, used an actual human skeleton to educate patients on various ailments and how Kiehl’s pharmaceutical remedies would help them. Now, Mr. Bones is a permanent member of the Kiehl’s family.
Get in on the action, by visiting a Kiehl’s store near you, where you will have the opportunity to instantly win prizes if you participate in a complimentary skin care consultation, 20-minute facial, or make a purchase. You can also tweet to win by tweeting your “check in” at Kiehl’s or photo of Mr. Bones from any retail store to @KiehlsNYC and include #MrBonesand #KiehlsGives.
Prizes include Kiehl’s gift cards (valued from $25 to $500), full-size Kiehl’s products, T-shirts, and a dermatologist visit with Kiehl’s consulting dermatologist Dr. Adam Geyer. In a game of chance, guests will get to choose a Kiehl’s packette sample from a variety of choices. A total of 206 prizes will be given away – apparently that’s how many bones are in the human skeleton. Who knew?
If you can’t make it to NYC to meet Mr. Bones, you can head on over to Kiehl’s interactive Facebook page to design your own skeleton, while learning more about each celebrity partner and entering to win cool prizes. The skeleton you create can be saved to the Kiehl’s gallery and shared on your Facebook page – now that will make a cool profile photo.
