Queen B cause of the week: This Kiehl's cream is raising money for Aids research

 

More than 34 million people are currently living with HIV/AIDS. Out of that number, about 3.3 million are under age 15. We need to find a cure for this tragic illness and skincare company Kiehl's Since 1851 is doing its part to raise funds for amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research. Kiehl's LifeRide for amfAR is currently underway and celebrities such as Kiehl's USA President Chris Salgardo, actor John Corbett and model Tyson Beckford have been riding their Harley-Davidson motorcycles from Washington to Oregon to California to bring awareness to this great cause.

In celebration of this annual charitable motorcycle ride, Kiehl's has launched a new product: the Limited Edition Ultimate Strength Hand Salve  ($28.50). The new, jumbo size version of the cream comes with a snappy red cap and packs some serious moisture for even the driest hands. It's perfect for people who use a lot of hand sanitizer gel or wash their hands a lot. The avocado and olive oil in the cream make this an essential unisex hand salve. Although it goes on thick and creamy, it doesn't leave hands feeling greasy.

As a bonus, it's benefiting amfAR big time. A hundred percent of the company's net profits from the sale of this product up to $25,000 will benefit amfAR and Kiehl's will donate $125,000 over the course of the ride.

Kiehl’s will also offer a 15 percent Celebration Discount at all Kiehl’s stores nationwide (including South Florida locations) Aug. 10-11.
