Kiehl's Store Tour, Queensbay Mall Penang

I knew about this brand, Kiehl's was from my fav. Taiwan blogger when she reviewed the Ultra Facial Oil-Free Collection, and among, the Gel-Cream had attracted me. Just when I planned to visit the store, I received an email from Kiehl's PR to join them for a store tour!

Hello Mr. Bones!

I was told that Kiehl's in QB Mall is their largest store! Indeed, compared to the Gurney Plaza's, this store is like double or triple of that. Penang has 2 Kiehl's store fyi. :)

Another collection attracted me during the store tour, the Calendula toner especially! 
I will tell you why later!

In that evening, we had Joy, Kiehl's PR all the way from KL to do the explanation for us. Special thanks to Joy for the invitation and I learnt a lot during the tour, not only Kiehl's, also skincare knowledge.

All the products are arranged accordingly, you can easily find the products of your concern eg. hydration, targeted treatment, anti-aging and etcetera, there will be a label on each shelf. Besides, they have a 'Customer Favourite' corner, ranking from 1st to 10th.

The special of Kiehl's is they have 100% money-back guarantee policy to ensure the customer satisfaction. They want their customers to get benefits from the products, they will always give samples for their customers to try the textures and formulas. I was given a lot of samples from cleanser to night cream to masque to try too!

Sun cream is actually one of the skincare people tend to neglected. *point to myself* I am not a 'Puteri Lilin' girl, I walk under the hot sun without shades, without cardigan to cover my skin and sometimes I will skip sun cream because I do not like the sticky texture. Surprisingly, Kiehl's Daily UV Defense is light based and it leaves a non-sticky finishing.

Kiehl's only has 2 anti-aging products and this is the anti-aging product I like, of course not for myself duh I am just 20 years  old  but for my mom! Though I did not try it, I kind of being attracted by the explanation of Joy. I want mama and I look like sister! hehehe

Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Masque is another amazing products! I can see the HUGE difference after apply for a minute on the back of my hand! I have been looking for deep cleansing masque, mud facial masque especially after I watched a few YouTube videos talking about it. 

This has added to my shopping list and I will get this after I finish the masques I have!

At first I thought Kiehl's is a skincare brand, but it's not. Kiehl's not only has skincare products, they have products for body, hair and even fragrances too!

After the store tour with Joy, Shelyn and I had our one-to-one skin analysis and consult with the store manager, Jess. :)

Selfie with Shelyn and my new bloggie friend, Lingzie ♥!

and and a photo with Joy!

See what's in my goodies bag!  
The top 1 (Most right) and top 2 (Center) Customer's favourite products!

This is why I love the Calendula Herbal Extract Toner! You get and you SEE what you pay for! 
The toner is made with whole flowers and pure extracts, it has a touch of floral scent and I love it a lot!

I have been using these 2 products since the day I brought them home and I really love them and Kiehl's. At first I was being influenced by my fav. Taiwan blogger :B not sure was she doing an ads lol, but how successful she is!, but now I know whether it's an ads or not, Kiehl's has already become my fav. brand! Simple packaging with rich content!

Due to this post is pretty long, I think I will make the product review to another post if my time allows me. Good things are worth sharing. :D
