Kiehl's Steals

Kiehl's products were a smash hit at my family's father's day celebration

 And if these products weren't enough, in case you missed it Kiehl's threw a kick ass Pride Party

Kiehl’s flagship store, honoring The Hetrick-Martin Institute (HMI). Kiehl’s USA President Chris Salgardo, with the event’s host, MYApresented a $5,000 donation to Thomas Krever, CEO of HMI, while DJ Gustavo created the party atmosphere. VIP guests included Orange Is The New Black’Emma Myles, and Tony-winner Nikki M. James.

...So if your a double-dad house hold all the more reason to double buy all your Kiehl's favorites

RIP to An Absolute Legendary Icon- Bill Cunningham

The news devastated me last night.

Bill, of On the Street with Bill Cunningham for the New York Times didn't tell the masses what to wear, and what the trends were

He went out on the streets of fashion and documented the actually trends people were wearing

....truly communicating what people were wearing not what the should be wearing

With an abundance of narcissistic bloggers focusing the attention on themselves, "Mr. Cunningham preferred to be a spectator, not a spectacle, but he got his fair share of attention." it was much deserved...


“We all get dressed for Bill,” Vogue editor Anna Wintour, a regular fixture in Cunningham’s columns, remarked in Press’s film.

His expert opinion, eye, and spirit will be cherished forever.

RIP dear Bill.

And no one will ever rock a blue coat like you did...

Make Father's Day A Kiehl's Day

Kiehl's products will put Father's Day in to gear for an elevated essential ranging from heaven-sent scents to cleansers and haircare

What to get the man who has it all, knows it all, and can do it all... (Clearly I think highly of my father)

Gift him a Kiehl's product that will become a regular on his wish list 

Age Defender line works together to strengthen skin, restore resilience and elasticity, while minimizing fine lines & wrinkle

Customers have adamantly switched from top razor brand and after shave products on the market

From the smooth finish to the soft afterglow he will be pretending to ponder while stroking his face all day long 

Smooth Glider Precision Shave Lotion

Close Shavers Squadron™ Smooth Glider Precision Shave Lotion

As a child fiercely  running to my dad after one of his long business trips I awaited the moment he'd scoop me up and I'd squeeze his face against mine breathing in the wonder dad aroma I later learned was his after shave and face lotion 

Scent. The strongest sense tied to memory.
Create new ones with these fine product picks:

              Musk Eau de Toilette Spray

Musk Eau de Toilette Spray

This handsome scent... 
Begins with an initial creamy, fresh citrus burst of Bergamot Nectar and Orange Blossom

Follows with a soft floral bouquet of Rose, Lily, Ylang-Ylang and Neroli

Dries down to a warm, sensual Oriental finish of Tonka Nut, White Patchouli and, of course, Musk

Or keep it old school...With Kiehl's Signature Scent

Musk Essence Oil
