Last fall, I was able to experience Kiehl's Apothecary Preparations ($95) where you work one-on-one with a Kiehl's skincare specialist to create the right serum for your skin. The whole process only takes 10-15 minutes and in the end you are given a truly custom skincare product that is amazing. After about two weeks using it, I started to get compliments on how great my skin looked. I found that the oil-based serum gave me all the stuff that my skin was really missing. One of my issues were my sun spots so my Kiehl's associate Mark created one that would help brighten my skin. I found that my sun spots indeed got lighter over time with daily use.
The Skin Strengthening Concentrate can be mixed in with up to two Targeted Complexes that you choose: wrinkles, texture, clarity, enlarged pores and redness. Another benefit I found with this service is that I really got to understand my skin better. Ask your Kiehl's skincare expert to do some tests. I always though I had dry skin but my skincare expert did a text and I am actually normal to oily (t-zone). He also tested how hydrated my skin was. He/she may has this special instrument. It made me realize I wasn't drinking enough water! You can see more on my experience in my blog post (link below).
Well now the great news is that this service is now available at all Kiehl's retail stores nationwide starting in October! (Previously it was only available at flagship locations.) If you have been feeling "blah" with your skin, trust me you will love this because it's truly customized to your skin. After you're done, you can walk out the door with a bottle of serum with your name on it!
