I was invited to join Kiehl's Grand Opening Celebration as an VIP invitation last friday at Galaxy Mall Surabaya. Kiehl's team came all the way from Jakarta to Surabaya to launch this re-concept boutique store of Kiehl's. The event was started with the ribbon-cutting ceremony by Ms. Regina Widjaja as Kiehl's Indonesia Brand Manager. Then, she and her co-worker narrated us about the history of how the store is formed. They also deliver such brief yet very clear explanation about the brand and product knowledge. Just an information that Kiehl's is one of a classic American cosmetic brand which is founded in 1851 as an apothecary by Dr. John Kiehls.
Ms. Yovita Lesmana and Ms. regina were sharing about the importance of having a beauty and healthy skin.
These are the top 10 customer favourite products, in no particular order: Powerful-Strength Line Reducing Concentrate; Ultra Light Daily UV Defense SPF 50; Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution; Midnight Recovery Concentrate 30 mL; Derm Wrinkle Filler; Ultimate Thickening Shampoo; Superbly Restorative Argan Body Lotion; Ultra Facial Cream; Derm Solution Blemish Control Solution; and Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel Cream.
Beside those ten, there are 4 best seller Kiehl's products of all time. Here the list.
1. Kiehl's Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution.
This water-based serum is a must have skin care product for those who has uneven coloration skin or any dark spots that caused by skin aging, hormonal changes, or maybe sun exposure. This Kiehl's Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution uses naturally brightening activated vitamin C and peony root extract to even out the tone of your skin in just a couple weeks. Thanks to this fast-performing serum, say goodbye to dark spots, and hello to the bright and clearer skin :)
2. Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate
This product is contained 10.5% of pure vitamin C which is a very good news to everyone who has wrinkle issues. At first, it may seems like other fundamental cream. However when you spread it out, it turned out into more like lotion than cream with almost aroma-less. I like the texture and the warm sensation of this concentrate. It is also easy to blend and absorbed by our skin quickly. One more thing, it lefts a brighter and smoother skin.
3. Midnight Recovery Concentrate
I can say that this is one of my favourite amongst all of Kiehl's amazing products. This Midnight Recovery Concentrate is contained with natural ingredients such as squalane, lavender, Omega-6 fatty acids, and other essentials oil. Based on research, squalane is a botanical lipid that suit to any skin type. The function of squalane itself is to help restore the natural moisture balance of our skin. While the lavender essential oil helps reduce irritated skin at night time and creates more radiant look to skin by morning. The lavender scent is also really calming and perfect for night time. Anyway we only need to dispense 2-3 drops of it to spread evenly on our entire face.
Actually my best friend is already use this fabulous formula and she said that this night serum last almost a year. And it works so fast. She said, the acne scars has faded away and her skin became more stable and glowing after using it. Yup, this small bottle of serum totally worth the price!
4. Ultra Light Daily UV Defense SPF 50
Kiehl's Ultra Daily UV Defense provides effective protection from harmful UVA and UVB rays. This sunscreen formula is not only help us to protect against the appearance of dark spots, but it also moisturizes the skin intensively. It is very popular because of it's fluid texture, quick absorption, extremely lightweight feel, no white residue, and has not caused any break outs. This oil-free lotion is also safe for sensitive skin. I think this product should be in my shopping list.
Overall, i like the new ambiance of Kiehl's boutique store. You can find the elegant and beautiful chandelier in the centre of the store, the signature New York-ish brick wall, art painting of the Liberty statue on the wall, and of course Dr. Skull as the icon of Kiehl's.
Last but not least, the positive side that i like the most about Kiehl's are they allow and give the product samples to the prospective buyers generously; they provide a free consultation for customers to assure them to get the right treatment for their skin care needs. Once again, Congratulation for the grand opening!!
