It’s a serious perk of the job here at Her.ie towers that we get to try and test some of the latest and greatest beauty releases and call it work. Lucky us. Here is a heads up on three products that got a communal thumbs up from the team in the week that was…
Limited Edition Holiday Collection, from €28, Kiehl’s
If you haven’t already tried Creme de Corps, sort it out and buy it now. It’s one of our favourite beauty buys of all time – and right now, it’s got a special seasonal look. Following the success of previous worldwide holiday partnerships, Kiehl’s has announced its 5th Annual Limited Edition Holiday Collection in collaboration with NYC-based artist Eric Haze. “Haze” was first recognized for his contributions to the early 1980’s NYC graffiti art scene, and has created custom album artwork and logos for The Beastie Boys, L.L. Cool J and MTV, as well as limited edition sneakers for Nike and New Balance, along with an established clothing line of street wear, with a flagship store in Tokyo, Japan. The Kiehl’s x Haze partnership is the designer’s first time working on skincare packaging. As part of the collaboration the classic Creme de Corps along with the Creme de Corps Soy Milk & Honey Whipped Body Butter and the Ultra Facial Cream are all sporting special festive packaging. Just another excuse to buy!
Feed Your Skin gift set, €80, Bia Beauty
We love supporting Irish brands, and when it comes to skincare Bia Beauty is amongst the best this country can offer. For an early Christmas present to yourself, try the Feed Your Skin gift set, priced at €80.
