As mentioned in my previous OOTD: NYC Roof Deck post, I was one of the lucky ladies to be part of Kiehl’s celebration of more than 160 years in the skin care industry. The event was held atop the Zuellig Sky Garden. I seldom go to big events anymore, but this one was a refreshing, one-of-a-kind scene. Good music was played by The Diegos, while everyone had a chance to sip, grab a bite and chitchat. On one side of the place, there were artists drawing a mural of Kiehl’s and New York.


Kiehl’s started in 1851 in East Village NYC and today, it still remains to be true to its commitment in being the purveyor of the world’s finest skincare- with no rules, just skin care that works.

“Kiehl’s launched in the Philippines in 2007. The brand’s arrival from New York to Manila made a loud noise in the market, and excited a huge cult following that we didn’t know existed,” shared Kiehl’s Brand Manager Sheena Dy. “Today, we want to talk to more Filipinos, and share with them the stories that Kiehl’s has formed throughout the world and in the Philippines. We want to share stories of skin care – skin care that has no frills, skin care that works, and one-of-a-kind skin care that will answer their one-of-a-kind needs.”


During the event, the Kiehl’s brand ambassadors were presented: Luke Landrigan, renowned surfer, Francis Libiran, globally acclaimed fashion designer, Marco Lobregat, established entrepreneur and model, Saab Magalona, life and style blogger and actress, Riki Flores, veteran court-side reported and radio jock, and Ornusa Cadness, DJ and model.

Towards the end of the event, here’s the almost finished mural. If you read about my outfit in my previous post (if you haven’t seen it, check it out HERE), you can now probably get it why I said that the print of my dress suits Kiehl’s and New York. 😀


with Tara and Nikki having loads of fun… 😀


Here are some of Kiehl’s bestsellers: Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate, Ultra Light Daily UV Defense SPF 50 PA +++, Midnight Recovery Concentrate, and Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution. I’m a big fan of the Ultra Light Daily UV Defense and the Midnight Recovery Concentrate. In fact, I’ve written a very detailed review of the Midnight Recovery Concentrate HERE. I have yet to try the other two. 😀


So, what’s your Kiehl’s story? What’s your favorite Kiehl’s product? 😀
