Every time I visit Papa Jolie at home, I’m reminded how much I love Kiehl’s. He uses it almost exclusively (his is also an Art of Shaving household) and Kiehl’s is one of those brands that never disappoints. I myself am obsessed with Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1, which I’m still convinced is the best lip balm ever created. (Lip Balm #1 is available in both a tube and a jar, but for some reason, I vastly prefer the jar. It’s a pot of lip smacking goodness.)
Just before I left LA for Atlanta, Kiehl’s sent me a bottle of their new Kenny Scharf Limited-Edition Creme de Corps. Creme de Corps is an incredibly emollient, super hydrating body moisturizer beloved by beauty experts. It’s one of those products you always find on “Best Of” lists as a non-greasy, dry-skin-repairing miracle. However, I’m digging this particular offering because of the packaging: the Kenny Scharf bottle is too cute not to post about!
Meanwhile, I find guys really hard to shop for, so I normally fall back on grooming products as an easy crowd pleaser. (After all, I got my start in men’s grooming! I was grooming assistant at FHM, many, many moons ago.) Kiehl’s is unisex, of course, but there’s something about their men’s products which most guys I’ve known over the years find particularly appealing–and as a result, their gift sets frequently end up being my default dude presents.
This kit is the Ultimate Man Refueling Set, a pretty good deal at $58 for Facial Fuel Energizing Face Wash, Ultimate Brushless Shave Cream, Facial Fuel Energizing Moisture Treatment, Facial Fuel No-Shine Moisturizing Lip Balm, Ultimate Man Body Scrub Soap, and Ultimate Strength Hand Salve.
Soooo, Papa Jolie may or may not be receiving the aforementioned set under the tree.
