Besides how amazing the Kiehl’s products are, I love this brand for their commitment to making a difference in our World.
Kiehls has announced their latest global partnership in aid of the “Keep A Child Alive” organisation. They have launched a limited edition of the much loved Midnight Recovery Concentrate which retails for R585 a bottle and 100 percent of the sale of this product will go towards this project.
The Keep A Child Alive organisation was co founded by Alicia Keys and Leigh Blake in 2003. The aim is to care for, support and bring dignified treatment to children and families in India and Africa affected by HIV/AIDS. Popular Songstress Alicia Keys has this to say about her involvement in this project:
“The thing that inspires me about it the most : we all deserve a chance at life and the chance to dream.I know this treatment really allows you to have life , and it allows little kids who would only be projected to live until the age of two without treatment to live a full, amazing,incredible life.”
Well Done Kiehl’s another amazing initative! Not like us Kiehls lovers needed much reason to buy the MRC product BUT, do support this worthy cause and give a child the chance to LIFE.

ps what was your highlight this year ?
For all beauty bloggers the coming to South Africa of Kiehls was like a dream come true. The South African stores are the first in Africa yipee.
The first SA store was opened within Edgars in Sandton. I was super jealous that is until I want a box of goodies from them to try out .
Now Kiehls is opening in DURBAN 🙂 , at the Pavilion and within Edgars this weekend.
A little background of this brand
* The brand is 161 years old.
*its original flagship store is still in NEW YORK
*The brand never advertises
*the packaging is not fancy but contains useful information on the products.
*the staff are amazing and I even got a handwritten letter with my samples.
*the products are of an amazing quality and work wonders.
My alll time favourite product is :
Midnight Recovery Concentrate
Introduced in 2010, this is Kiehl’s number one bestseller at the moment. Described as “A Replenishing Elixir of Pure Essential Oils and Distilled Botanicals”, this serum includes lavender oil as well as omega 3, 6 and 9. Apply 2-3 drops before bed, on its own or over your night cream, and let it work its magic while your skin is most receptive to regeneration.The smell as well as the fact that it’s 99,8% naturally derived and free of parabens. It freshens up tired skin and contributes to a radiant glow (this one is a must after a big night out!). Don’t drop dead by the price – as you only use 2-3 drops a night, a 30ml bottle will last a long time.
Midnight Recovery Concentrate is R549 for 30ml. A little pricey but so worth it ! I am been very stingy with this bottle of mine 🙂
So do check them out on Twitter
