For every holiday season, Kiehl's partners up with well-renowned artists to create special limited edition releases of its best-selling skincare products. This year, Kiehl's teamed with the German-born American graphic artist Peter Max, known for his colorful and psychedelic illustrations that have graced the cover of Life magazine and the walls of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Inspired by Max's "The Cosmetic Runner", the Holiday 2015 Collection is available online and in stores now. To read more about the range, click........

  • Creme de Corps Whipped Body Butter, $46 CAD for 226g
  • Ultra Facial Cream, $56 CAD for 125ml or $33 CAD for 50ml

  • Kiehl's Lip Balm #1 Set, $38 CAD
The Kiehl's x Peter Max Collection features a very festive and vibrant illustration of a "Holiday Flyer" prancing through the air holding a large gift box. The design is definitely colorful and fun but I wish the limited edition labels were directly applied onto the bottles and jars. My Cream de Corps' label is unevenly applied, still leaving the edges of the original label peeking through the edges.
My pick from the collection is the lovely Creme de Corps, a rich yet lightweight body lotion formulated with shea butter, sesame, olive, sweet almond, apricot kernel, and cocoa seed oil. It absorbs almost instantaneously with no noticeable scent, leaving the skin soft and silky.
The Ultra Facial Cream is another favorite of mine. Made with apricot kernel oil, avocado oil, olive oil and special "glycoproteins extracted from microorganisms sourced from sea glaciers", this is a very nourishing face cream perfect for the night time.
