Hey hey, guess who’s back back back – I am university and intern free! I’m planning a few lil’ posts about how I got on interning in London, but for now, enjoy this! A few days ago I had the pleasure of attending an evening event with Kiehls. I’ve always been so intrigued by Kiehls, I admit I’ve stopped and peeped in before but never actually stepped foot in store, because I just don’t where to begin when it comes to my skincare. There’s a few cult products that I see almost everywhere on Instagram and I know from relentlessly watching Kylie Jenner’s snap stories that she’s a huge fan, so you can imagine how happy I was to finally dive in and learn a little about the products.
Initially we were greeted with a cheeky cocktail in association with the new cocktail bar around the corner, The Alchemist. I would 100% recommend you try out the ‘Bubble Bath’ cocktail, a pretty pink frothy cocktail that tasted sooooo good. Once we got settled and had a little chin wag and a piece of cake with all the other bloggers, we were introduced to some of the top products and received a complimentary personal skin consultation. The store is cleverly split into sections, so once you’ve discovered your skin recommendations, there’s a whole section devoted to you. Don’t worry if you’re in a rush and you don’t want to spoil your makeup either – the little patches can detect your skin type over the top!
My results showed that my skin type is oily to normal, so I was shown the range of products that were suitable for my skin. The skin consultant Diane was super lovely, she even recommended a few products for my annoying puffy morning eyes too. I genuinely could’ve spent hours in there!

Can we also talk about how cool that dry ice table set up is by the way?! Even though I had my eyes on buying almost everything, I settled with the bestselling moisturiser, Creme De Corps. I’ve had a few samples of this in the past and loved the rich texture and the gorgeous smell, so I thought I’d stock up and buy a bigger size. I learnt that the Victoria’s Secret models use this moisturiser before they walk the runway, so they’re all glossy and smooth for the cameras. Just praying it somehow turns me into a Kendall Jenner. I left arm in arm with a whole bunch of skincare samples and goodies which was so generous of the lovely staff at Kiehls. I’m going to test these products out for a few weeks so I can do a proper review and give my full opinion on them, so if you love Kiehls – keep your eyes peeled!
Thanks for reading! J x
