Make Me Feel Like A Natural Woman Award Winner: Kiehl’s Superbly Restorative Argan Body Lotion

Kiehl’s celebrates Earth Day 2009 with the introduction of a limited-edition Superbly Restorative Argan Body Lotion, of which 100% of net proceeds will benefit Waterkeeper Alliance.

For this initiative, Kiehl’s partners with actor Adrian Grenier, musican Erykah badu, surfer Kelly Slater, and three design students from Parsons The New School For Design; they helped Kiehl’s to create four limited-edition labels representing their commitment to sustainability, to raise funds and awareness for Waterkeeper Alliance.

The Superbly Restorative Argan Body Lotion is one of my new favorite eco-friendly finds. My desiccated skin breathes a sigh of relief as soon as I smooth it on. It helps improve skin’s resilience and texture, enriches skin’s moisture barrier, and leaves skin soft with a healthy-looking sheen. Take a tip from me and apply it all over, post-shower/bath, when your skin is still a wee bit wet – to lock in moisture. And you’re going to flip for the sift, citrusy scent.
