Kiehl’s Masters The Art of Gifting
Kiehl’s has always been one of our go-tos for simple, super-effective skincare solutions, but the New York apothecary brand-turned-international success story has become equally adept at the high profile collaborations game. Julianne Moore, Pharrell Williams, and Chloë Sevigny are just some of the boldfaced names that have signed on as part of its charitable label initiative, in which limited edition packaging designed by friends of the company is slapped onto its best-selling products. American artist Jeff Koons has also been a supporter of the program, which donates proceeds form the sales of his designs to The Koons Family Institute on International Law and Policy, an initiative of the International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children. Koons has signed on again for the holidays, introducing a newly minted collection of Kiehl’s Creme de Corps that features an image of his iconic Balloon Flower (Yellow). The limited edition collection includes the classic body moisturizer as well as a specialized, scaled-down version of the skin saver with a gilded cap meant to reference the artist’s famous sculpture. One hundred percent of Kiehl’s net profits from the sale of each item, up to $200,000, will be donated to the non-profit organization. If you’re looking for something to gift the gallery-hopping beauty fiend in your life, here you go.
