Grand Opening of Kiehl’s Store in Orlando, FL

Kiehl’s skin and body care products has taken a front seat with me. I’m in love with these products. And it all started out with a sample. When I told Chris Salgrado, the President of Kiehl’s USA this, he stated that is why they hand out samples; it is the best way to let people know how Kiehl’s products work right away.

About a month ago, I spotted a stand-alone Kiehl’s store at the Mall of Millenia, Orlando, FL. Naturally, I went right to it. I found out that the store had just opened four days ago! The wonderful store manager, Dina, told me about their Grand Opening coming up and that Chris Salgrado would be attending as well as many of the NYC corporate personnel. I got a hold of my Beauty Blogger of Central Florida girlfriends and asked them to come along and make an event of it.

Kiehl’s was founded in 1851 by John Kiehl in New York City. Kiehl’s is a company rich in its history as well as giving to many charities. Their current charity is RxArt, a children’s healing charity…Artist, Kenny Scharf, designed the limited edition promotional products to contribute to this charity.

I got a chance to not only talk with many of the NYC Kiehl’s corporate staff, but also to actually talk with and ask questions with Chris…

I’m always up for a photo with a handsome man! But he really is a genuine and caring person. He was thrilled that just a few samples got me hooked on Kiehl’s products. I knew I would be adding to my collection at the event too. I will review those with you on a later post.

I love the old apothecary feel the stores still keep. They have a blend of old world with modern technology…

The men’s line is very extensive. Chris expressed special interest in getting the word out that men need to not only take care of their fine lines and wrinkles but to protect their skin from harmful sun rays. It’s no longer acceptable to not know that unprotected skin exposed to sun will cause cancer. Kiehl’s keeps in mind that men like their products to reflect their masculinity and address their skin needs that are, to some degree, different than women’s.

At the Grand Opening, Kiehl’s was providing one on one skin care advise and mini facials. Fellow beauty blogger, Nidia of Beauty Lit From Within blog, got a facial treat…

And my friend, Steph of Imperfectly Painted blog, shared the festivities…

I see she was loving the products too!…

The entire staff at Kiehl’s at Mall of Millenia, Orlando, FL, is gracious and knowledgeable. Do check out this store and, if you don’t live in Orlando, there are many stores to visit. However, you can shop online just as easy as clicking here. And, don’t forget to ask for your sample. You might just discover the best skincare you have ever tried.

  • SO Chris totally looks like my ex with a beard LMAO CRAZY! Anyway, I’m moving to Orlando. You ladies get the best events there!

  • I love Kiehl’s and I’m so bummed I couldn’t make it to the grand opening with you all. It look like you darlings had a great time, especially Nidia getting that facial! Is that a chalk drawing of Chris I saw in one of those photos? Awesome! And I agree with Brooke, we totally get the best events here…and she should move here 🙂
