Kiehl's Kenny Scharf Creme de Corps (Holiday 2012) review + photos

          Kiehl's has a very colorful collaboration for a cause this holiday season. The company has partnered with artist Kenny Scharf to create a vibrantly packaged bottle of the fan-favorite Creme de Corps body lotion. One hundred percent of net profits from the sale of Limited Edition Kenny Scharf Creme de Corps (up to $200,000) will benefit children's causes around the world. In the United States, proceeds will support RxArt, a non-profit organization that places contemporary art in pediatric hospitals to lift the spirits of young patients.

           Kenny Scharf is an American painter based in Brooklyn New York. He's known for his pop-surrealist paintings and installations and was a key figure in the East Village art scene of the 1980's. (Fun fact: Scharf was a friend and former roommate of Keith Haring!) The Limited Edition Kenny Scharf Creme de Corps bottle features Scharf's work Globo Mundo.

          Kiehl's Creme de Corps has been a Kiehl's fan favorite for over four decades. Creme de Corps is a rich, hydrating moisturizer. It has the consistency of a lotion and sinks in quickly, yet imparts the moisturizing capacity of a heavier cream. There is a 'lotion-like' scent that I assume is a result of the ingredients within (as opposed to an added fragrance).

          Limited Edition Kenny Scharf Creme de Corps ($48 for 16.9 oz.) is sure to please both art lovers and Kiehl's fans alike. Plus, the profits from sales of this body moisturizer will be headed towards good causes that benefit children. Art and beauty are two of my loves in life, so I'm happy to have this bottle on my counter-top this holiday season. Thanks for reading! Have you tried Kiehl's Creme de Corps? What do you think of the pop-art packaging? Are you more inclined to purchase products that support charitable causes?

Love, Dovey.
