What Kiehl's Has in Store for Skincare Addicts [Store Visit]
If you are a skincare addict then you must have heard about the famous brands from New York which is around since 1851 - Kiehl's. Kiehl's already have its presence in India at Mumbai and Delhi. Now, to the delight of every skincare addict in Kolkata, we now have a store at the Quest Mall. Well, every new and bright thing in Kolkata is happening only there baby *wink*
Kiehl's started and operated as a single pharmacy for 150 years and later sold to L'Oreal as the brand could not keep up with the huge demands. What makes Kiehl's different is its straight forward packaging and taking part of philanthropic activities ( majorly AIDS research and prevention, children's well-being and the environment). (source)
Kiehl's is also famous for its Unorthodox marketing approach - Unlike other companies, Kiehl’s remains dedicated to its sampling programme. Kiehl’s gives away more than 12 million samples a year, which is 80% of their total marketing budget. Their famously generous sampling practices allows customers to take home mini sizes of whatever they want, while not hurting the company’s profitability – Kiehl’s lets the product speaks for itself!

In Keihl's, they also do a test to check your skin by keeping a patch on your forehead and cheek. Depending on your issues, they recommend you products which you can try using samples and then buy.
You can even try the samples at the store as there is proper sink lined up with all the products and everything. So, in case you are sure about the product then you can buy it on the spot.
My skin came as dry to normal but I know it will change to oily as Summer hits the town. So, I will go back to store in a month or two for better analysis.
All the 'Try Me' around the consultation table at Keihl's.
