Kiehl’s + FAILE Are Teaming Up to Create a Collection With a Cause

This holiday season, Kiehl’s is giving us all one more reason to rejoice. The fan-favorite New York City-born and bred apothecary is joining forces with Brooklyn-based artist collaboration FAILE to launch an 8th Annual Limited Edition Holiday Collection dubbed Baby Give Back. But that’s not even the best part. One-hundred percent of net profits from the collection—up to $100,000—will be donated to Feeding America—the nation’s leading domestic hunger-relief charity—to help provide 1.1 million meals to families. Talk about bringing holiday cheer to those in need! 

“One of the reasons we’re thrilled to partner with FAILE this holiday season is because we were so impressed with their dedication to reflecting the message of giving back in their artwork,” said Kiehl’s USA President Chris Salgardo in a press release. “It’s also a perfect partnership in that Kiehl’s, whose formulations are all made in America, and FAILE both call New York City home.” He continues, “We’re honored to continue to support Feeding America. It’s unacceptable to me to think that 15 million children in this country are food insecure.” 

The holiday range—which features custom art in striking black, white, and gold typography designed by FAILE duo Patrick McNeil and Patrick Miller—includes the brand’s coveted Crème de Corps Soy Milk & Honey Whipped Body Butter and Ultimate Strength Hand Salve Trio, as well as a limited edition gift set, and canvas tote. Treat yourself or gift a friend with any or all of the limited edition items in the collection. Aside from the gorgeous, art-filled packaging, the formulations are simply to-die-for. Here’s a breakdown of how your product purchases will contribute to the great cause:

Kiehl’s Crème de Corps Soy Milk & Honey Whipped Body Butter: This luxuriously-scented cream feels light on the skin, but don’t let that fool you. It gets to work instantly to deeply hydrate, restore and soften the skin. The limited edition, 2 oz. jar costs $15 and will donate 85 meals. 

Kiehl’s Ultimate Strength Hand Salve Trio: For dry, active hands, look no further than this ultra-strength formula blend of botanical oils and natural wax derived from olive oil to moisturize and condition skin. It helps skin draw and absorb water from the air, forming a “glove-like” barrier against moisture loss. The giftable trio of 2.5 oz. Ultimate Strength Hand Salves costs $34 and will donate 295 meals. 

Limited Edition Gift Set: The brand’s hydration essentials—Crème de Corps, Ultra Facial Cream, and Daily Reviving Concentrate—round out the gift set, with the addition of a FAILE sticker. Priced at $45, one purchase will donate 415 meals.

Canvas Tote: You’ll need something to carry all your new skin care buys in, right? Reach for this reusable tote bag priced at $15. One tote purchase will donate 55 meals.

The collection will be available at and at Kiehl’s stores nationwide by October 19.
