Kiehl’s: An outstanding first impression 

My night face cream is close to empty. Not because it was amazing but because I can’t really afford throwing away full, new products. So naturally I was in the hunt for a new one. The whole web has been raving for quite some time about Kiehl’s ultra facial cream. The amazing reviews in addition to a pretty reasonable price tag made me check out the Kiehl’s booth.

The girl at the booth, Maria, was overly kind. After she introduced herself she asked me if I had some time to talk and to do a test in order to create a personalized skin care routine. Since I wasn’t in some kind of hurry I said yes. At first she talked about the company. How it was established in 1851 and how they use naturally-derived products to heal the skin and help it work as it should. After she applied two strips on my forehead and cheek she told me how moist and healthy my skin was (what kind of sorcery is this). Maria then proceeded to ask me what my skin struggles were. After she wrote all the information down in my newly created electronic file she presented me with a skin care routine she believed would best suit me. Since I only needed a cream and I hadn’t tried the brand I only opted for the cream and promised myself that if I am satisfied with the products I tried I would gradually switch my skincare products to the ones Maria suggested. I also got a magic elixir for my head’s dry skin. Last thing that impressed me is that if you take empty bottles back for recycling for 3 you get a lip balm, for 5 a deluxe sample and for ten a full size product from a specific list. 

All in all I saw a brand that promotes natural products that are kind to the skin while considering the environment by using recycled packaging and rewarding people who recycle.

  1. Oh wow! That’s so amazing! I can’t believe they offer an incentive to recycle! That’s brilliant! If I could get those products easily over here, I would certainly be investing in some

  2. That’s such a great idea, Kiehl’s core values sound a lot like Lush – they offer a freebie for returning used bottles to their store too 🙂 how do you like the cream?

    1. You could order online. I don’t know if the transportation costs are really high but if they are reasonable and Kiehl’s isn’t the most expensive skin care brand you would probably still pay less than you would for a luxury item. If sometime in the future you decide to order online please let me know how it was. Also where I live there wasn’t a store a year ago and I just found it yesterday as a booth in a big store that carries a lot of brands. Maybe this could be the case for you too? Anyway thanks for your comment 😊

    1. Well from my first impression yes I was really happy. I will have to try the products for sometime and then I’m definitely uploading a review! Also if you have a store near you you could always ask for samples. This is the best way to check if the product works for you 🙂

  3. Glad to see trees were not harmed lol I tried a Kiehl’s plumping face serum (don’t think I said that right lol) and I loved how soft and smooth it left my skin:) I’d like to give more of their products a try. Thanks for the great review!

  4. I just bought a new moisturizer, Burt’s Bees, and I’m loving it. But now I’m thinking that I should definitely try this when mine is finished. Can’t wait to hear what you think of it.

  5. I have never tried Kiehl’s before, but reading about the “sorcery” and questioning that went into figuring out what product would be best for your skin type definitely makes me want to try it out!
