New! Richmond Centre Kiehl's

Last week I was invited to check out the new Kiehl's store in Richmond Centre, which was bringing its much-loved skin care products to the Richmond area of Greater Vancouver. Founded in New York, Kiehl's has been around since 1851, although it has only begun expanding from its original store very recently.

It was a great opportunity to learn about the history of the company and how it has evolved over the years. Fun fact: Kiehl's stores often feature vintage motorcycles that represent the founders' adventurous spirit--but it was also a great way to get men into the store to try skin care products, long before the term "metrosexual" was ever thought up. Talk about savvy marketing!

Like the motorcycle, Mr. Bones is a Kiehl's icon, which was used in the brand's early days to teach customers about their various ailments. Now he just hangs out looking handsome ;)

Mortar and pestles, and all types of tubes and jars decorate the store as a nod to the company's past as an apothecary.
For my dry skin, I was recommended the Ultra Facial line, which is a customer favourite for hydrating and balancing the skin. I'm looking forward to thoroughly testing these products and reporting back!
