Kiehl’s famed Creme de Corps body lotion is one of our go-to products all year long, and with the increasing chill to the air, an extra layer of the hydrating formula does the body good. In time for the holidays, the beauty brand is taking an extra step to do even more good by teaming up with Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign. By purchasing a jar of the Kiehl’s Creme de Corps whipped body butter, you can take a step to end childhood hunger in the United States — up to $100,000 from all net proceeds will benefit the No Kid Hungry cause, which provides additional meals to children in need. One jar provides 380 meals, and in addition to the amazing cause it benefits, we’re also loving the festive drawing adorning the lid by 11 year-old Sofie Shore, daughter of Share Our Strength’s co-founder Debbie Shore. Pick up the Creme de Corps whipped body butter, available in either grapefruit or coriander, for $38 at kiehls.com.
Anti-aging measures are often taken to the extreme, and thanks to a recent poll conducted by Elizabeth Arden, we know just how far some are willing to go! While 24% of the women polled said they’d invest in a cosmetic procedure, 33% admitted that they’d give up social media for an entire year if it meant a younger-looking appearance, the Huffington Post reports. With the mix of potent serums like the Fresh Black Tea Age-Delay ($80; fresh.com) and Algenist’s Advanced Anti-Aging Repairing Oil ($79; sephora.com) on the market, such extremes aren’t needed — Fresh’s formula combats free radicals and has an instant smoothing effect, while Algenist’s oil enlists brown algae extract to restore elasticity and impart a firmer texture. Also of note: Kiehl’s Super Multi-Corrective Cream ($62; kiehls.com), which is the real-life counterpart to Photoshop’s blur tool on fine lines with its hyaluronic acid-rich formula. Luckily, there isn’t any proof linking social media to signs of aging, so we can all rest assured knowing our Facebook and Instagram feeds are safe for another day.

Did you know that product packaging makes up almost 45% of the trash found in landfills?

Products With a Purpose: Alanis Morissette and Zachary Quinto Design Kiehl’s Lids to Promote RecyclingApr 1, 2013 @ 2:00 pm
Here’s a beauty launch that you really oughta know about: Alanis Morissette and Star Trek stud Zachary Quinto designed custom packaging for Kiehl’s! Both stars created limited-edition lids for the brand’s famed Ultra Facial Cream, and the collaboration is anything but “Ironic” for activists Quinto and Morissette—all proceeds from the upcoming launch will benefit Recycle Across America. (The Earth-friendly beauty brand enlisted the help of Rosario Dawson and Florence Welch for a similar project last year.) Keep an eye out for Quinto’s and Morissette’s designs when they land in Kiehl’s stores nationwide and kiehls.com later this month, just in time for Earth Day on April 22.

Kiehl’s partnered with New York-based pop artist Kenny Scharf to create the fourth annual limited-edition Creme de Corps Collection. Like Kiehl’s previous collaborations—Jeff Koons did last year’s set—100% of profits will support children’s charities around the world (shop it for $29 to $75 at kiehls.com). And Kiehl’s isn’t the only one tapping visionaries. Other beauty brands have called on influential artists to produce contemporary art-inspired products and packaging.

What does sustainability mean to actress Rosario Dawson? Or musician Florence Welch? Each star answered that question by designing the packaging on Kiehl’s Deep Pore Cleansing Masque, its latest eco-minded beauty product.

The masque will be available online at kiehls.com and in stores April 3rd—just in time for Earth Day!—with all proceeds benefiting Recycle Across America.

Going green has never been more fashionable thanks to a slew of eco-friendly products—and their celebrity supporters!

One hundred percent of the proceeds from the spray’s sales benefit the Rainforest Alliance. Fashion brands and retailers are also celebrating Earth Day with special initiatives. Loomstate will plant a tree with every purchase made today, while Louis Vuitton is donating 10% of today’s online sales to Global Green USA. Rock & Republic is offering 20% off a new pair of jeans, just for donating an old pair to one of its stores! Check out more eco-friendly products & deals in the gallery below.
