Kiehl's cosmetics are immediately recognizable by their minimalist packaging, a holdover from their first days as an apothecary in New York's East Village, relying on free samples and word of mouth for testimonies of their formulations to spread. The effect of those testimonies were such that the firm came to count the likes of Andy Warhol amongst their most loyal customers. While Andy Warhol's favorite Kiehl's product was their blue astringent, containing witch hazel shaven and oily skin, men now also have the option of purchasing similarly naturally-derived skincare products as the coconut-derived Cross-Terrain bodywash and algae-infused Facial Fuel moisturizer.
For women, Kiehl's manufactures a full line of make-up from mineral pigments, as well as dermabrasion cream from diatomaceous earth and a range of cleansers, moisturizers and toners containing herb extracts to address every skin concern. Spending S$120 in a single receipt will earn you a lifetime Friends of Kiehl's membership, giving you exclusive access to launch parties and much more.
