Kiehl's is now sold all over the country, in countless department stores, but this is still me favorite location to purchase my skin, hair, and bath products from their line. The staff, in their little white coats, are so attentive and more knowledgeable than any department store counter clerk could be. The store has been around for ages, and I love reading the articles about the Heidegger family, and their athletic feats, while I shop.
Their products are pure and have a clean simplicity about them, even those with fragrance, because they are never cloying or overwhelming. Personal favorites include the "Wet Look" groom for my curly hair and the Creme de Corps body lotion. They also send you home with samples of many of their products for you to try. This is very effective, as you wind up being converted to new products in the process.
Overall, this is a much more personable shopping experience and worth making the detour for, rather than going to your nearest department store Kiehl's counter.
