Kiehl's Superbly Restorative Argan Body Lotion is like a long, cool drink, but for water-parched skin. Rich and creamy—and smelling scrumptiously of oranges and eucalyptus—the epidermal thirst-quencher gets its hydration power punch from fairly traded, organic argan oil, the beauty industry's miracle du jour, along with squalane, an olive-derived ingredient trumpeted for its enhanced absorption of antioxidants. Dewy? Supple? Yes and yes. The skin on my winter-chapped hands positively glowed.
To celebrate Earth month, Kiehl's is getting wet and wild over another moisture advocate—Waterkeeper Alliance, a grassroots organization that champions clean water—with a limited edition of its body lotion dressed up in labels designed in collaboration with Adrian Grenier, Kelly Slater, Erykah Badu, and Parsons The New School for Design. All proceeds from every 16 oz. Limited Edition Art Series bottle ($55), available at Kiehl's stores, select specialty stores, and online at www.kiehls.com, will go to Waterkeeper Alliance.
Bonus: The gorgeous bottles—talk about eye and skin candy—are made from 100 percent post-consumer recycled plastic. So go ahead, soak it all in, the water's fine.
