Kiehl’s Since 1851 Teams With Nicole Warne
Kiehl’s Since 1851 is teaming up with digital influencer Nicole Warne, aka @GaryPepperGirl, in support of its biggest launch of this year, Daily Reviving Concentrate, beginning Aug. 18. The new skin-care offering is a daytime counterpart to the brand’s best-selling Midnight Recovery Concentrate, said Chris Salgardo, president of Kiehl’s Since 1851. The formula contains a trio of oils — ginger root, said to protect skin cells from UVA-induced lipid peroxidation; sunflower seed, said to increase hydration and reduce redness, and tamanu, a natural source of linoleic acid, said to inhibit the release of pro-inflammatory markers. It will retail for $48 for 1 oz. and be available exclusively at kiehls.com until the end of August. It launches nationwide on Sept. 1.
