Mini Haul from Kiehl’s

I popped into Tangs half an hour before closing time yesterday, hoping for some retail relief. I eventually left the store with Kiehl’s Forest Rain Eau de Toilette Spray, Lip Balm SPF 15 in Hue 58B (a gift for a dear friend) and a stamp accumulation reward card.

Its complex notes rivalled only by my beloved MAC Turquatic (so, so difficult to find now), Forest Rain has lingered in my memory ever since I tried it some time back. The scent aside, I truly love the glass bottle that holds the fragrance; its stunning emerald green hue and clean lines a joy to behold.

The reward card is issued with every S$50 spent and a stamp is given for that same amount. Every empty receptacle from Kiehl’s will give you a stamp too – a good reason to recycle those containers! These stamps can be accumulated for products and a S$40 Kiehl’s voucher will be given upon completion of the card.

More pleasant that this happy haul was the stellar customer service I received from the Kiehl’s beauty advisor, Yvon. She was not only patient and helpful the entire time I was browsing the counter, she was also cheerful and reassuring…despite it being near closing time. She even packed the gift, together with a couple of sample sachets, in a lovely box and gave me samples she knew I would like.

This was surely a far cry from the brusque treatment I’d received a long time ago at the original local Kiehl’s store. Thank you, Yvon. :)
