And we're not complaining - we love festive-smelling products which we can richly lather all over our bodies. Vanilla bean lotions... firewood-scented creams... the list goes on and on. To keep your skin supple and nourished when you're travelling to colder climates this upcoming holiday season, make sure you keep these newly released lush moisturisers on hand. Vanilla-scented everything and warm smelling spices, here we come.
Mickey Mouse x Kiehl's
Kiehl's has teamed up with Disney this holiday season to give its signature Crème de Corps body moisturizer a Mickey Mouse makeover. A limited-edition version of the product now features the famous cartoon character on its wrapping. The moisturizer, formulated with cocoa butter, beta-carotene and sesame oil, promises soft, hydrated skin, and best of all, profits from sales of the Mickey Mouse collection will be donated to the hunger-relief charity, Feeding America.
