I recall the first time I’d worked with the brand. It was back in 2011, my first beauty shoot at Prevention magazine….and Kiehl’s was the only brand who had a lip balm with an SPF.
While the brand and I continued to work in harmony, this was the first time, my blog had associated with Kiehl’s India for an event.
The plan was simple: to invite those who love all aspects of skincare, over skin consultations, finger foods and goodie bags. In short, Be For Beauty spent an afternoon with Kiehl’s
The Kiehl’s team headed by Sowmya and Vrinda helped out from Mumbai whereas Visheshika, the PR person for the brand kept the boat afloat, here in Delhi.
Here are a few pictures from the event to show you what happened….
The event was held on Feb 27 at Kiehl’s flagship store in Vasant Kunj, New Delhi.
With food and drinks ready from L’Opera (forgot to take a picture but the food was brilliant!)
Features Editor from Better Homes and Gardens, Vanessa Fitter, and my fancy social media intern whose also a fashionista anytime of the day were in on time. Skin consultations and chit-chat later, it was time to take a picture.
The goodie bags had trial samples of products based on each guest’s skincare consultation.
Make-up artist and collegue, Anuj Dogre along with the team from MSMBox, a novelty beauty box brand also dropped by to show their support.
A couple of friends dropped by in between for a brief time (pictures were forgotten!). Anuj, one of the few men who is well-versed with the brand even did a little shopping!
Oh my wonderful mom, who took a half day from work also made her way to the store. She loved the Midnight Recovery Serum from the brand, amongst other products that reduce pigmentation. There she is, looking amused.
Alas, came two of my favourite experts, and colleagues….makeup artist Vidya Tikari and dermatologist Dr Deepali Bharadwaj. After having worked with them for quite long, it was great to see them here!
Great to catch up with them, Dr Deepali promised to try and review various serums that the brand prides upon.
Oh two more people came, but we (Visheshika and I) were very tired.
My last guest, Sutapa from Koovs, was a great guest who made our day by shopping from the brand after her consultation. She also got a Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Gift as a token of appreciation from Kiehl’s for shopping above Rs 5,000 along with her goodie bag.
Oh, and as the host I got a variety of full-sized products and samples (reviews to be written after usage), which was a complete suprise.
All in all, we had a great time. Again, a big thank you to the team at the store and from the brand.
