kiehl’s grand opening

kiehl’s has landed in my neighborhood and i have to say i’m pretty psyched about it.

kiehl’s was the first brand of man-products that i bought the mister (one fateful valentine’s day if memory serves), and since then, it’s the only brand that steve and i can agree on.

last night, the skincare extraordinaire threw a welcoming fete for their newest location in tyson’s corner. conveniently situated across the way from sephora, the store evokes the feel of a vintage apothecary – i love it! store manager evan (the girl) and i became fast friends. she loaded me up with samples, and i dare say it won’t be long before i’m sitting in her chair for my mini facial.

here are a few quick snaps from the event:

i immediately zeroed in on the fabulous chandelier.

i quickly found my summer staple: this oil-free lotion can be layered under makeup for a flawless application and complete sun protection. sold!

georgetown cupcakes?! don’t mind if i do. those girls have their own tlc show for a reason. (make that many, many delicious reasons.)

did a little shopping in the man section as i’m desperately trying to convince the husband that it’s time to start taking preventative aging measures. (he’s not interested.)

and, the aftermath: a perfect his’n’hers haul.

we both love the ultra facial cleanser (so co-ed shower friendly!) and i scooped up a facial fuel energizing facial wash for steve. i couldn’t resist these two tinted lip balms for me, and a classic clear one we can both share.

all in all a most successful evening!

if you’re northern virginia based, pop into the new store and tell miss evan that i sent you. while i can’t promise you that there are any cupcakes left, i know that she’ll be sure to spoil you with sample swag and your skin will love you for it.

      isn’t it the best? i don’t think they’ve put a single product out that i can’t get behind and their customer service is exceptional.

    75ml/2.5oz (Health and Beauty) I am surprised to see this on Amazon! I puecrsahd mine from the Keihls website which was obviously more expensive. This product is okay at first it did very well, but still left me on the search for the perfect moisturizer. It is light weight and doesn’t leave your skin oily, but when I would touch my face during the day or look in the mirror my skin looked and felt very dull. I purchased mine without SPF (I dislike the buring effect of all SPF facial lotions).
