We love Kiehl’s! We really we do! This brand has been around since 1851 and 160 years later it is still known for its quality and luxurious skin, hair and body products. Those of us not in Jo’burg died of envy when Kiehl’s opened shop in Edgars Sandton City last year but now a Cape Town store is on the cards for later this year. (Watch this space.)

Meanwhile we’re giving away a Kiehl’s hamper to one lucky reader – wherever you are in SA – here. Just tell us why you want to get your hands on Kiehl’s by commenting below and you could win a hamper with:


• Kiehl’s Lip Balm 15ml (R75): It’s a bestseller. This is the lip balm you want for relieving, protecting and moisturising your lips. There’s a reason that one is sold ever 15 seconds and celebs like Gwyneth Paltrow, Halle Berry and fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg swear by it.

• Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate 30ml (R585): Actresses Uma Thurman and Chloë Sevigny are fans of this overnight repair concentrate that is light and works with the skin’s natural processes. It’s been called sleep in a bottle and will have your morning skin replenished, rejuvenated and refreshed.

• Kiehl’s Crème de Corps 250ml (R345): Kiehl’s original rich nourishing cream is a great all-over body moisturiser that’s not too greasy and not too light. The rich natural butters leave skin soft and hydrated. Take note, it’s one of Beyoncé’s beauty essentials.



• Kiehl’s Intensive Treatment and Moisturizer 100ml (R225): This treatment is designed for very dry and callused skin. It’s a rich emulsion with avocado oil and shea butter and the beauty of it is that you need to use very little at a time.

Kiehl’s is sold at Edgars Sandton City, tel: 011 685 7000. Kiehl’s customer care: 0861 001 085

This competition is now closed. Lize Hartley – you lucky fish! Congratulations on winning with Kiehl’s, we’ll be in touch shortly!

    It’s nearing my monthly beauty restock and I would just love to try Kiehl’s range. It sounds amazing and I love the packaging too! Random, but packaging along with the product always sells me. Would be divine!

    With autumn here I’m looking to do a restock on my moisturisers, lip balm and hand cream. I would to try something new like Kiehl’s but with my budget I’ll probably returning to my trustee Vaseline which handles just about everything listed. Intensive Treatment and Moisturiser sound just like what I need! 😉

    I got my hands on some Kiehl’s samples in December (actually took the train in to Sandton from the airport specifically!) and can’t believe Cape Town has to wait until July for a shop :( The Crème de Corps is the best body moisturiser I’ve ever used!

    Being a student with a budget I tend to purchase beauty products on the cheaper end, with that I’ve noticed my skin has started looking dull , dry I’ve always read brilliant reviews on Kiehl’s so I’d like to try first hand. These products offer everything I hope my skin to be : replenished, rejuvenated and refreshed, soft, hydrated and the list goes on!!

    I have always heard about how great Kiehl’s beauty products are, but have never got the chance to try them! Im a student, I have twitter, and I want to brag to everyone about how great their products are (because, students, we do that, you know?).
    Also, I promise to love, cherish and use those products until I’m forced to go get some more when the brand finally arrives in Cape Town. Kiehl’s! Yes!

    Why I love these products, is I live in P.E and alot of these brands aren’t stocked in the retail stores and I never get a chance to try them out. Bonus is I’ve heard such awesome reviews makes me want to try them all. I would like to change my products as well and I know Keihls would be one of the best products to move too. I will travel far and wide to get hold of those products #fingerscrossed :) Make my day, month and year all in one. 😉

    As a hardworking fashion intern, I feel I need to always look my best but my budget is extremely tight. I’ve never had the pleasure of using any Kiehl’s products but they sound wonderful. I’m sure that these little luxuries will keep me feeling pampered and refreshed even on the toughest of days.

    I’ve always heard people rave about Kiehls products and now that I am a mom of a 4 month old baby boy I don’t have much time to look after/ treat myself, so I would be absolutely THRILLED to be spoiled with a Kiehls hamper so that I could look after myself with the best products available!!!

  • Lize Hartley May 2, 2013 - 11:33 am Reply

    I’d like to get my hands on this hamper because I am making several changes [no, upgrades!] to my life: I’ve started my own company; I’m investing in a ‘business wardrobe'; and I’m about to take some very exciting steps in my life! It stands to reason, then, that I should upgrade my beauty routine, too, and this hamper would be perfect for it!

    It all started with a visit to New York in 1990. Yes, that long ago. I walked past a store that had the range in their front window and was immediately struck by the packaging. My boyfriend, then an uber trendy art director promptly went in and bought me the Creme de Corps. And since then, I have had to beg borrow and ask every time someone I knew went overseas to buy me some more. Am I glad they are here? You betcha.

    Been dying to try Kiehls out since I lived in Chicago. I was a penniless au pair so could never afford it – just used what samples I could get my hands on. Now that it’s here, and I’m a little older, wiser and earning a real income, I’d love to include the range it in my beauty regime!

  • Queen of Frocks May 6, 2013 - 3:18 pm Reply

    Yay to Kiehls’ arrival in Cape Town – looking forward to that. Pick me, pick me! It’s the ONLY thing I want to slather myself in this Winter.

  • Emma-Jane May 6, 2013 - 9:05 pm Reply

    I have chapped lips and the driest skin at the moment. I would love this moister pick me up! :)

    That picture of Beyonce has already got me sold!
