Kiehl’s is an American cosmetics brand retailer that specializes in premium skin, hair, and body care products. It started as a single pharmacy in Manhattan at Third Avenue and East 13th Street in 1851. Kiehl’s was purchased by the L’Oréal Group in 2000 and currently has more than 250 retail stores worldwide.

The brand’s mascot is a skeleton named „Mr. Bones.“

Aaron Morse inherited the company in the 1950s. He saw the East Village flagship as a community gathering place — like a Starbucks, but with skin-care instead of coffee. So he worked to make the place about more than just skin-care, introducing both a stack of biology books and Mr. Bones, a human skeleton, as a way to encourage learning and interest kids. Now, there’s a Mr. Bones in every Kiehl’s store.

In over 1000 points of sale

Kiehl’s has largely stuck to its principles. It continues to bypass traditional advertising methods to reach new customers, preferring to rely on word of mouth, samples and its reputation as a leading skincare brand. Men still make up roughly one-third of customers globally. Kiehl’s also tries to make the stores look identical worldwide. No matter where you are, you will always find a Kiehl’s Store that will look the same like the one you know from home.


Get you skin analyzed and get the right products for your skin

That’s what I did a few day ago – went to the store and got my skin analyzed. It was super easy and pretty fast, didn’t even had to take of my makeup – which I was super happy about. After the analyzing the shop assistant showed me every products that would suit my skin and help me to make it even better. It was super interesting to hear everything about my skin and about the products. What I also loved was that during the consultation I was able to ask all the question and didn’t felt the pressure to buy anything – what I really liked! I also got all the product listed so that I know which ones suits my skin the best. So if you ever wanted to know how your skin is doing and what the right products are – then you should really stop buy a Kiehl’s store and get your skin analyzed.

If you don’t like it – bring it back and change it

Kiehl’s really tries to make their costumers happy. If you buy a product and end up no liking it, you can bring it back (after 28 days) and get it exchanged with a new product that might suit you better. I really love that kind of philosophy! Sometimes we end up buying a product but while using it we might notice that it’s not what our skin might need.
