Each year US skincare brand and modern beauty icon Kiehl’s unveil limited edition versions of some of their best sellers as reinterpreted by some of the world’s most unique and innovative artists. Over the years they have become collectables, and are always far too awesome looking to hide away in the bathroom cabinet!
This year is no different with the release of the super colourful, whimsical and fun Kiehl’s X Peter Max collection. Peter Max is a German-born, world-raised, and New York-based artist who rose to fame and prominence in American pop culture when his art captured the imagination of the ’60s generation. His designs have adorned everything from a US postage stamp to a Continental 777 super jet and more, and his work fits the Kiehl’s aesthetic like a glove.
Inspired by the art legend’s acclaimed work “The Cosmic Runner,” this season’s limited-edition Kiehl’s packaging will impart smiles and a spirit of celebration amongst Kiehl’s customers all over the world. From a wide range of subjects, Max captures the beauty of nature with sunsets over mountains, rolling landscapes, and puffy clouds, accented by his iconic “Holiday Flyers” that dance across the sky through his signature vibrant colour palette. The bright, imaginative design - which perfectly embodies Kiehl’s energetic spirit - is sure to burst through traditional holiday landscape, making for exceptionally unique and joyful holiday gifts that I for one would be more than happy to receive!
The whimsical design will adorn a selection of Kiehl’s most beloved formulas, including Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream and Calendula Toner, as well as a new collection of scented Richly Hydrating Hand Creams (below) in Lavender, Coriander and Grapefruit. Inspired by the cult classic Ultimate Strength Hand Salve, the new Ultimate Nourishing Hand Creams are formulated with Shea Butter, which protects skin from dehydration and restores skin’s suppleness, and Vitamin E, which is known as a strong anti-oxidant and helps to protect the skin. Want them all!
