Around this time of year it’s a beautiful thing to be given a gift — but it’s even more beautiful to be the gift giver. I reached out to some of my favorite brands to arrange special holiday giveaways for Afrobella readers, and I hope you love the products as much as I do!
First up on the holiday giveaway list? One of my FAVORITE skincare brands. That’d be Kiehl’s.
Kiehl’s is a skincare brand with a rich, historic legacy. Think for a second of how many businesses and brands have come and gone since 1851, when Kiehls was founded. The fact that this skincare brand has lasted for so very long speaks directly to its effectiveness. Through the years I’ve been lucky enough to try quite a few Kiehl’s products, and I’ve also been lucky enough to meet the very handsome president of Kiehl’s, Mr. Chris Salgardo — click here to follow him on Twitter!
When I met Chris we talked about our favorite Kiehl’s products (obvi) and about what makes the brand so special. Kiehls isn’t cheap, but it isn’t as expensive as high quality skincare can be. And for the money you pay, you really do get a product that works exquisitely. I’ve done quite a few reviews through the years, but let me tell you about my five favorite Kiehl’s products in 140 characters or less.
— Midnight Recovery Concentrate is everything my skin needs and more. I’m addicted to good serums and this is
— Rosa Arctica remains one of my favorite night creams ever, it smells like luxury and makes my skin feel so soft!
— I recently tried the Ultimate Strength Hand Salve and it totally deserves that name! Penetrating moisture when you need it most, and without a frou-frou fragrance so the fellas will like it too.
— If you have oily skin the Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleanser might be your new bestie. Amazonian White Clay and Diatomaceous Earth particles deal with the oil and grime so very well!
Last but not least, CREME DE CORPS. This will require more than 140 characters!
You know when your skin feels dry and thirsty in the winter months? When you can see the dryness on your legs or your arms? That’s what Creme de Corps is FOR. I use it sparingly — not just because it’s pricey, but also because it’s so rich and luxurious that you don’t need a ton of lotion to moisturize your situation. It smells divine and feels even better. And in the spirit of holiday giving, I’ve got a Kiehls Creme de Corps giveaway just for YOU!
Here’s how you can win! Leave a comment below, telling me your number one winter skin dilemma. Five lucky winners will get an 8.4 oz bottle of Creme de Corps! This contest will be open until December 27 to contestants within the US, so you have lots of time over the holiday week to enter (and hopefully win!)

Good luck and MERRY CHRISTMAS, bellas!
