Guys, Christmas is this week, can we get excited or what! I am still at work until this Friday, but the thought of Christmas Eve and Christmas Day is pushing me through! If you are super last-minute like me, you’re still planning your wishlist, buying gifts and planning your outfits. This week on the blog I will be sharing with you a few last minute holiday ideas for gifts and for outfits, so you don’t miss out on all the holiday fun! Today I am starting with this cute and adorable Kiehl’s x Jeremyville collection– a great gift for anyone in your life!
To celebrate the 2016 Holiday season, Kiehl’s is furthering their tradition through an unparalleled creative collaboration with Jeremyville. Originally hailing from Sydney Australia, Jeremyville is a Brooklyn-based street artist and co-founder of Studio Jeremyville, located in a historic brownstone. He shares his Community Service Announcements on the streets of New York City and via his publication Jeremyville RAW. Jeremyville is globally renowned for his high-profile collaborations with brands and stores all over the world such as Swatch, Uniqlo, Converse, LeSportsac and so on. Basically, he is a super cool street artist and his partnership with Kiehl’s for this holiday makes perfect and oh-so-cool sense!
The centrepiece of the Kiehl’s x Jeremyville Collection is visually inspired by one of New York City’s most iconic landmarks, Central Park. This classic New York City setting has been reimagined by the artist to feature an engaging world of happy snowmen, smiling skaters, shining stars and even Kiehl’s very own formulas, brought to life to infuse the warmth and energy of the holidays, making each item the perfect gift to delight a loved one (or even yourself) during the season of giving. The characters on the products are so cute and so cool, and they really give off that Holiday spirit!:)
In South Africa, two of the Kiehl’s famous products got the Jeremyville makeover- The Crème De Corps Body Lotion and the Ultra Facial Cream. Both are big favourites of mine, I basically live and swear by the Ultra Facial Cream. Its fuss free and so efficient, and I stock up on this product anytime I get a chance. This year it gets a cute makeover with a Jeremyville touch, and the awesome thing about this product is that its great for any type of skin- oily, dry or combination. It’s the perfect moisturizer as it gives just enough of what your skin needs. And who doesn’t love to receive a little skincare on Christmas? Grab this little edition gem for R375 and spoil any lady or guy in your life!
If you are a bit worried about gifting skincare, then I suggest you spoil them with the Crème De Corps Body Lotion (R695). This light-weight body lotion has become my latest favourite, and I totally didn’t see it coming! I am usually a huge fan of the Whipped Body Butter (which got the Christmas makeover last year) for its amazing smell and the richness of its formula.
The Body Lotion has a much thinner texture when you compare them- it absorbs quickly and instantly soothes and moisturizes skin for a lovely, silky feel with “dress-and-go” convenience. I love that it comes with a pump- very convenient and easy to use.
It comes out a pale yellow colour out of the bottle and the thing that I wasn’t convinced with at first, is its smell, or the lack there of. This lotion almost doesn’t have a scent, but it still feels pleasant and smooth on the skin. This would make a great gift all-around, and dressed in its Christmas attire, it can be the centre piece of all the presents!
The Kiehl’s x Jeremyville Holiday collection also includes customizable gift sets for those who wish to personalize their holiday gifting with the Kiehl’s products of their choice. In addition, a custom-wrapping service with Limited Edition Kiehl’s x Jeremyville gift boxes, are available at Kiehl’s freestanding stores worldwide and select specialty retailers.
Check out this collection at all Kiehl’s stores and online at Red Square!
