Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream

Kieh’ls Limited Edition Ultra Facial Cream helps support the MTV Staying Alive Foundation

New York skincare brand Kiehl’s, are partnering with Global Charity the MTV Staying Alive Foundation, to help raise funds to support innovation projects which aim to stop HIV before it even starts. The Foundation is an international content-producing and grant giving organisation dedicated to stopping the spread of HIV among young people. Since 2005 the Foundation has reached 100% of the top 50 countries affected by HIV, it has awarded 500 grants in 66 countries around the world and has helped 200,000 people get tested as well as distributing over 7 million condoms.

To celebrate the partnership, Tinie Tempah, the ambassador of MTV Staying Alive has designed this Limited Edition Ultra Facial Cream, 125ml.

Kiehl’s UK donates £2 for each purchase of this limited edition to MTV Staying Alive Foundation*.

Kiehl’s has a longstanding heritage of working to fight the HIV/AIDS epidemic with their work beginning in the 1980’s, when it was taboo to even mention. Just in the past 10 years, Kiehl’s worldwide has raised more than $2,500,000 for the cause.

MTV Staying Alive Foundation provides funding and training to youth-led HIV prevention projects around the world. Their work helps these projects and their young leaders to develop vital skills to build innovative, culturally relevant and sustainable organisations that lead the fight against HIV on the ground.

Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream is 24-hour daily face moisturizer that helps reducing moisture loss while drawing and absorbing moisture from the air. With continuous moisture replenishment throughout the day, leaves skin smooth, soft and healthy-looking.

 

I tried the cream and loved it but as I have my daily routine that includes anti-ageing creams (I’m 36 years old,  yikes! ;)) I convinced my husband to use it as he has no daily routine at all despite my efforts, so far he is happy with it and his skin looks and feels better already.

 

Show your support!

As well as purchasing the Limited Edition Ultra Facial Cream, you can send a donation to the charity.

A quick easy and safe way to support the MTV Staying Alive Foundation is to donate by text message. In the UK Text HIV1 to 70660 to donate £5. Or text HIV1 £X to 70660 to donate your chosen amount (maximum £10).

We are huge fans of My 1st Years since the moment we received our first blue box, and I say we because it’s not only Suri that loves their products, I absolutely adore it as well.

To start with I appreciate when a brand makes the effort to excel on the packaging, after all first impressions do count and I have to admit that it makes me feel special thinking that the brand had that extra care when sending me one of their products and makes me value it more because such precious goodies need to be packed accordingly. This Tiffany Blue box conveys the luxury of what comes inside.

Then comes the personalisation, most of their products can be be personalised with the child’s name (how cute is that??), kids love it, mum’s think it’s adorable and on the practical side there’s no better name label than that.

And last but definitely not least their product selection is fantastic and carefully chosen with excellent taste and quality.

On a personal level not only Suri has many of their products but it’s also our first choice when gifting one of her friends.

The last thing I bough and can’t wait to use is the Oversized Bobble Hat or shall I say the Oversize Bobble HATS, yes, because I couldn’t resist to buy both kids and adults’ version!

I’ve been considering OTK Boots (Over the Knee – or Knee High) for a while but after trying a pair at Aldo I’m not sure if it’s really my style although I absolutely love seeing it on other people.

I always prefer when styled with short dresses and that’s maybe the reason why I didn’t buy it yet, I don’t have many short dresses, actually I don’t think I have any that I would use now.

Over the knee boots

You can also wear it with leggings or skinny jeans although I have to admit that I didn’t like to see myself with the jeans combination.

Below are two examples of how it can look good with jeans but I would recommend it only if you have thin legs, unfortunately I don’t, specially the thighs.

blog post.003

For me the trick is to always leave a gap between the skirt/dress and the top of the boot.

You can find OTK boots in different styles and colours and of course in a big range of prices. Here are some of my favourite so far.

Aisabobo - A luxury clothing brand

I’m kind of obsessed with this dress since the moment I’ve seen it and ticks all the boxes in Suri’s preferences. I’ve been trying to resist buying it but I think it’s time to give up and just buy it as it’s too pretty to be missed and Suri will love it.

Aisabobo is a brand that I’ve been following on Instagram since a while and always loved their designs and style but mostly because Suri was too small to wear their dresses I never tried any but now it’s the time! 😉

Aisabobo’s mission is to bring the best of Canadian design to the world of children’s fashion. A luxury clothing brand for boys and girls aged 3 to 7, their enchanting designs are made with the highest quality materials and impeccable craftsmanship.

Co-founded by Jinka and Sharon Kagami, Aisabobo is a gift for their future daughter, Aisa. The word “bobo” is the sound one makes when kissing on the cheek.

Their design philosophy is that style is important for kids as much as adults. Our clothing strives to balance fashion with function, and to add a little chic to the sandbox.

Their new collection Prima Ballerina and Urban Gent is made with the highest quality materials and impeccable craftsmanship, the new collection is inspired by the elegant sophistication of a Prima Ballerina and the sartorial cool vibe of an Urban Gent.

I wish they had both my favourite dresses (Isobel and Victoria) in adult size as well! 😉
