Kielhs, has been creating and selling lotions and potions since 1851. Their stores, (more like body pharmacies), are staffed with knowledgeable sellers who are definitely swilling the Kielh's Kool-Aid, with every meal. The only product I have ever purchased was Kiehl's Silk Groom, after being sucked in by the lore that Silk Groom would make my mane as silky as a Thoroughbred's tail...uh NO.

Last September, I visited the original site of Kiehl's N.Y pharmacy, as part of a TotalBeauty Blogging summit. We were generously treated to a full 8oz. size of Kielh's Imperial Body Balm. It was interesting; apricot hued, richly textured with a vaguely exotic smell. It got buried in my goody closet until this past week. I'm thrilled to have unearthed it, because it
I always keep some type of heavy duty cream on my night stand, to tackle my feet, hands, knees and elbows, right before bed.

This is how Kiehl's describes Imperial Body Balm: "Inspired by old-world Russian herbal remedies, this supremely rich body balm renews the look of very dry, tired-looking skin with Sea Buckthorn Berry Oil, known for its replenishing effects on skin. Our skin-renewing balm also helps to protect skin from signs of premature aging due to dryness, exposure to harsh climates and environmental effects. Our luxurious recipe instantly reveals skin that is smoother, softer and royally radiant. Sea Buckthorn Berry Oil is naturally replete with Vitamins A & E, Carotenoids and Palmitoleic Acid to protect skin from free radicals, and support skin cell repair from sun and environmental damage. Skin appears healthier, smoother and more youthful.
Yes, it does... Thank God!!! That slight off
So now you know. The $42.00 price tag is not all that prohibitive, as a small amount is needed and the 8 oz. tub is generous. Let's be serious...It's priceless. So give someone you love the royal treatment and don't forget to treat yourself too...your knees will thank me.
Happy 4th y'all!!!
