Everyday Basics

You may not know it, but there's a motorcycle ride going on and it totally makes sense to talk skincare because of it...

If you're not familiar with Kiehl's, they're a skin and hair care line who's blend of cosmetic, pharmaceutical, herbal, and medicinal knowledge has produced a product lineup that is top notch!

"Scientifically formulated to respect, restore, and strengthen the skin barrier for healthier, more radiant, younger-looking skin", their products are appropriate for both you, him, and the house guest.

A little bit of background...

Kiehl’s was founded as an old-world apothecary in New York’s East Village neighborhood. In 1996 Kiehl’s made HIV/AIDS a key philanthropy, and over the past two decades they have raised more than $2,000,000 for HIV/AIDS organizations and continues to do so.

Here's the cool part...

Every year, Kiehl's holds a multi-day, multi-stop motorcycle ride around the U.S. to help raise awareness and benefit AIDS research. Kiehl’s LifeRide for amfAR is a multi-day, multi-stop, charitable motorcycle ride from Wisconsin to New York. Every year, Kiehl's CEO, Chris Salgardo, leads the pack, accompanied by a list of celebrities, and last week they stopped in Chicago!

As part of this initiative, the brand sells a Limited Edition Ultimate Strength Hand Salve– a jumbo-sized tube of the classic formula and best seller, with 100% of the proceeds from the sales of this product going to benefit amfAR.

Between the hubs and I, we've tested a lot of Kiehl's products over the years. The images above feature some of my go-to beauty basics, including a hat for bad hair days ;)
