This Friday, July 20, marks the end of Kiehl’s LifeRide for amfAR, a ten-day motorcycle jaunt across the East Coast that raises awareness for HIV/AIDS research. The storied skin-care brand is celebrating the end of the ride by hosting the bikers at the Georgetown Kiehl’s store. From 6 to 8 PM, you can sample biker-inspired small bites by big-name chefs like R.J. Cooper, David Guas, Mike Isabella, and Robert Wiedmaier. If that’s not enough, the still-foxy Sharon Stone (how does she do it? Seriously.) will also be on hand to greet the bikers and raffle off a pair of tickets to the July 21 amfAR & GBCHealth’s Together to End AIDS Gala honoring Bill and Melinda Gates at the Kennedy Center. [Ed. Note: We’re almost done name-dropping. We swear. But still, pretty exciting, right?].
In the spirit of giving, Kiehl’s also has a few special deals and limited-edition sets available. On July 20 and 21, you can score 15 percent off all purchases in both the Georgetown and Tysons Corner locations as well as online (just use the code LIFERIDE at checkout). Also up for grabs: the brand’s new Lifestyle Essentials kit (pictured above). It’s packed with almost $100 worth of goodies, including all-in-one body wash, face cream, hand salve (basically, a bunch of good stuff to keep at your desk/take to the gym), as well as a tube of the brand’s new eucalyptus lip relief, which is only available in this kit. The set retails for $74, but we’re giving away one to a lucky Shop Around reader. All you have to do is be signed up for our weekly newsletter (if you aren’t already, you can do so right at the bottom of this blog post). We’ll announce the winner of the kit Friday at 5:30, right before the bikers are scheduled to ride into Georgetown.
Kiehl’s Georgetown is located at 3301 M Street, Northwest. The event is free and open to the public; RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
