Discovering Kiehl’s


Kiehl’s has opened a small shop within a large department store in my town. According to a recent article in our local paper, this area has such a large number of online sales of the Kiehl’s brand, that after much research, the company decided to open a shop here. Not a store so much, but a "mini boutique," a little larger than your average beauty counter. It’s an interesting concept and when I saw it recently, it certainly stands out among the Clinique and Estee Lauder kiosks of the world.

But, here’s my confession: I’ve never tried any of the Kiehl’s products. Yes, I feel like the country mouse in saying that. It’s been around forever (apparently since 1851), it’s a favorite of celebrities, and many of the products have a reasonable price tag. So, where have I been??

I’m tempted now more than ever to jump on the Kiehl’s bandwagon, since apparently everyone and their brother in the tri-state area are buying this product. So, blogger friends, are any of you users of Kiehl’s products and, if so, what would you recommend? I’m always on the look-out for a good moisturizing lotion and I hear their Cream de Corps body cream is top notch. Or perhaps I should try the Heat Protective Silk-Straightening Cream, since I spend just about every morning straightening the wave out of my hair.

I’ve long been an Aveda fan, but I’m open to new products, so if anyone has opinions to share on the Kiehl’s line, would love to hear it!

I'm still with Aveda. And a couple of local organic really yummy smelling brands here in France that do wonders on your skin... Have tried Kiehl's but would stick to Aveda. Guess it depends on the product!

A kiehls section has recently opened in the 2 biggest department stores here and I have tried a couple of products and they are quite lovely. I was really impressed with one of the exfoliant samples but I can't remember what it is called. I am a clarins girl though, and have been for a few years now. I don't know where I would be without my beauty flash balm!

Hope you are enjoying the countdown to Christmas!
Best wishes, Natasha.

I'm so happy to hear that the Kiehl's is open - I haven't been out to the mall yet but I'm anxious to check it out. The Silk Groom is AMAZING, you have to try it! And the hand cream is pretty fantastic, too.

I'm an Aveda gal myself, but am curious about Kiehl's. I'm thinking it sounds like a good Christmas gift...for myself of course :)

I'm a huge Kiehls fan! I have all their products! Their lipbalm is addictive, and their hair stuff, especially the amino acid shampoo and conditioner are brilliant! Love Kiehls, been loyal customer for years! Defo go for it! xxx LZ

I just caught on to your blog recently and I'm a new fan of Keihl's. I needed to find a moisturizer with some SPF. Keihls was by far the best price and it really soaks in - not greasy. Enjoy my research !
