Sometimes you just don’t want to listen to well-meaning advice. Whether it be from your mom (“don’t date that boy!” “don’t major in English!”), your friends (“don’t date that boy!”) or your dad (“eh dating that boy won’t last anyway so do what you want to do” “you should really be socking away 30% into your 401k for tax purposes,”) sometimes solid advice, for whatever reason, elicits a ‘meh’ reaction. That was kind of the feeling I had about body moisturizers. It’s not that I want to have flaky, lizard skin. It’s more that I thought I was already covering my moisturizing bases, with bath oils, body scrubs, and other moisturizing, soapy products.
Well, it turns out I’d been hitting moisturizing singles and hoping they would make it to doubles or triples. But that has just not cutting it, with this season’s winter, balmy weather (insert appropriate baseball analogy here, as I got nothing.) But Kiehl’s Limited Edition Soy Milk and Honey Whipped Body Butter is helping me to achieve that elusive moisturizing homer, with a product that smells so luscious and scrumptious, that I slather it over my body without abandon. Erring on the sweet side, without being sickly, their body butter has the texture of a light, non-sticky frosting that melts and sinks deep into your thirsty pores. The fragrance does that hard-to-pull-off thing of reminding you of a dessert, without actually ever resembling one, so you never get that, “Why do I smell like a cupcake”-post-moisturizer regret. In collaboration with pop artist, Kenny Scharf who designed the Globo Mundo label, Kiehl’s is donating 100% of the net profits to charity RxArt, a non-profit that supports the arts in pediatric hospitals. So, batter up.
