Two Warm and Fuzzy Things Together: Kiehl’s and Kenny Scharf

Kiehl’s is the kind of beauty and skincare line that likes to let the products speak for themselves. What’s usually quiet word-of-mouth is about to get louder for the holidays. This year the culty brand has invited Kenny Scharf to design its limited-edition Creme de Corps Holiday Collection. The pop artist’s bright and happy creatures, based on TV cartoons, are splashed across the company’s best-selling, and possibly the world’s best, body lotion.

Fans of Scharf, the sole survivor of the 80s art scene that included Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat, can also own a small piece of the famed artist’s work, a drop-headed character named Squirt. Each Squirt toy doll is individually numbered and includes a signed certificate of authenticity.

$29.50-$75 at Kiehl’s. 100% of net proceeds will benefit RxArt, a non-profit organization fostering artistic expression and awareness among pediatric patients.
