Kiehl’s & Disney team up for the Holidays 

Just in time for this holiday season, Kiehl’s and Disney are teaming up to donate 100% of the net profits of the new Disney x Kiehl’s collection (up to $100,000) to Feeding America. To raise awareness for Feeding America, Disney and Kiehl’s are partnering up. It’s staggering to know that one in six kids in America do not know where their next meal is coming from. For all excited buyers who are eager to help the world (and their skin), shop this awesome collaboration:  the Special Edition Collection For A Cause ($45, donates 350 meals), the Special Edition Creme de Corps Grapefruit Whipped Body Butter ($38, donates 355 meals), the Special Edition Scented Hand Cream Trio ($35, donates 310 meals), and the Special Edition Hydration Essentials Gift Set ($29, donates 210 meals).

Body Energy Stickers to the Rescue

If you’re feeling tired, anxious or distracted, would you be willing to apply a sticker and skip your latte? Body Vibes are the latest wellness trend. They are smart stickers programmed to deliver natural frequencies to balance the body. Through a proprietary technology, frequencies are recorded and stored within the sticker. The key is to properly apply the sticker to your bare skin. Once applied, the sticker begins broadcasting stored frequencies which then begin to influence the cells in your body. This causes a balancing effect, restoring your body to its optimal electrical frequencies. There are stickers for mental focus, mood lift, anti-anxiety among others. If you want to give them a try, go for the Sacred 6 Variety Pack. “The cell is a machine driven by energy. It can thus be approached by studying matter or by studying energy. In every medical tradition before ours, healing was accomplished by moving energy.” – Dr. Albert Szent-Gyorgyi, Nobel Laureate in Medicine

JinSoon Is Taking A Colorful Stand

JinSoon has partnered with graffiti artist Chris Riggs on this bright and vivid shade collection. The messaging and meaning behind this partnership resonates with all of us. The names of the shades are Love, Hope, Peace, and Grace. Each of the polishes are available for $18 a piece, and are hitting the JinSoon website later this month. (They are available for pre-order on the Barneys site right now.) We think they’ll make the perfect accompaniment to your spray-painted sign at the next march.

Introducing a Chic Collab with Nails Inc.

NAILS INC will launch a unique limited edition nail shades inspired by the Spring/ Summer 2015 Victoria, Victoria Beckham collection. The Japanese-inspired shades, Bamboo White and Judo Red, come in a frosted, limited edition version of the new Nails Inc bottle design. Both polishes in this collection are cremes and are well pigmented (two coats is the ideal). Nails Inc Bamboo White is a pink-tinged bisque creme. It’s milky but not streaky. Feminine and chic. Nails Inc Judo Red is a tomato red creme that can look very orange, depending on the light. It’s vibrant and rich and super glossy. Overall, the colors are not ground-breaking but the formula is fantastic. If you are an LE packaging collector, you will be all over this product.  You can get it here.
