Must Go's: Kiehl’s Party: What An Event!

This is a very late post. One I probably should have written long ago. For that I am TRULY sorry. But that said, it is still better late than never! So I was amongst the lucky guests invited to attend the Kiehl’s Party hosted by Von Von on the 8th of August. It was held at the flagship store in Pavilion KL. At first I was shocked as they were actually having it within the Kiehl’s store premises. A shocker as there would be normal customers walking in and out as well as the other guests. I knew it was to get crowded.

The party started off with Nadia, PR of Kiehl’s, introducing herself and then having the hostess do so as well. Then all the guests were “invited” to introduce themselves as an ice-breaker.

Then came the video presentation on Kiehl’s, with Nadia providing extra details.

After that came Play & Mingle Time. Some people drifted off to the yummy table of food, ordered from blogger FatBoyBakes and cooler of drinks in between. The food was delish, the company wonderful.

We got to play with anything and everything in the store, including the kiddie section! But that’s another story.

We were also introduced to their Ultra Facial range, with Ice Man included! Very exciting.

Ice Man looked so cute with his frosty icicles, seen here with Miu and Von Von respectively. I went round and round the store playing and testing, sniffing and reading everything. I think their videocam had a lot of fun tracking the same person going on a bit of a Merry-Go-Round that day.

And of course, there were the goodie bags. A whole table full of them! Those cute baggies surprised everyone who opened them. 2 deluxe-sized samples consisting of 1 Ultra Face Cream or Moisturizer and 1 Formula 133 Hair Conditioner and Grooming Aid, not including the samples provided to all guests after consulting with the Kiehl’s Customer Representatives (KCRs)!

Kiehl’s also offered all guests a further RM 10 off every RM 100 purchase that day. Boy, I don’t think anyone left empty handed! Not counting the goodie bags of course. I sure didn’t! So what did I get for my first (but NOT last) haul??

The Gently Exfoliating Body Scrub in 'Pear Tree Corner' (must try!!), Lip Balm #1 (review coming up soon!), and the much raved about Dermatologist Solutions Ultimate White Surface Brightening Exfoliator (reviewed!)!!

The group photo (what was left of the invited guests anyway), everyone was so busy playing and mingling we totally forgot to take it earlier.

Overall, I couldn’t have asked for a better Party! The food great, the atmosphere buzzing with excitement, the KCRs extremely helpful and generous, and the hauling…slighty greedy. Now I know what to put on my wishlist!! So a BIG THANK YOU to Von Von for hosting, to Kiehl’s for allowing us the pleasure of messing up your store (I know we did!), to Nadia (PR) and Yvonne (Retail Manager) and the rest of the KCRs for having us and being so helpful and knowledgeable. I can only hope this won’t be the last of it. You’ll be seeing me around Kiehl’s pretty soon I presume!
