If you needed us to tell you another reason to love Kiehl’s, they’ve got plenty this month for Pride. For 15 years, Kiehl’s has been supporting the NYC LGBTQ+ community, and this year they’ve partnered with the Ali Forney Center, Hetrick Martin Institute, and The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, & Transgender Community Center in order to support LGBTQ+ youth in everything from housing, healthcare, and education. They also just came out with limited edition moisturizers in partnership with The Tegan and Sara Foundation, exclusively for their NYC and Brooklyn locations!


Kiehl’s has been marching in the NYC Pride parade for 15 years now, and their support doesn’t stop there. They will be donating $15,000, split between the three organizations (the Ali Forney Center, Hetrick Martin Institute, and The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, & Transgender Community Center), with each organization challenged to find a match to their donation, doubling the amount to $30,000. Chris Salgardo, President of Kiehl’s USA, is truly touching in his statement,

“I want to do what we can to support that community, particularly those that might not have advocates elsewhere in their lives.”

You can contribute to Kiehl’s in-store donations through NYC and Brooklyn, starting this Sunday June 18th through June 30th. These additional funds will be disbursed to provide for substance abuse counseling,  HIV/AIDS prevention, education and resources, and more to provide love and support for LGBTQ+ youth.


Kiehl’s is featuring limited edition versions of their Ultra Facial Cream and Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel Cream for pride month in eight of their NYC and Brooklyn locations. 100% of their net profits will go to the Tegan and Sara Foundation, donating up to $5,000. Not sure which one’s for you? Both creams work great for summer and keeping you hydrated all day long. Depending on your skin type, you might prefer one over the other!

Ultra Facial Cream ($27.50/1.7oz) is Kiehl’s best-selling 24-hour daily face moisturizer that helps to reduce moisture loss while drawing and absorbing moisture from the air, to continuously replenish moisture throughout the day.

Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel Cream ($27.50/1.7oz) provides 24-hour hydration for normal to oily skin types. The non-greaser hydrator moisturizes and conditions skin with a fresh texture.

Both of these limited edition creams will be available starting today, Friday June 16th. All Kiehl’s New York stores will be participating! Happy pride month everyone, we hope you consider donating with Kiehl’s this month, and have a safe time expressing yourselves and being with your loved ones. Who are we seeing at #nycpride?
