Kiehl's Top to Toe Consultation and Skin Care

Having done so many giveaways/ competitions on my blog, I haven't really entered many myself during the year. After posting up my Christmas Gift Guide 2013 back in November, I was in full Christmas mode! I decided to enter some giveaways to try and win ourselves some extra pressies under the tree. And we did!

Apart from a Hello Kitty watch and a Moshi Monsters Cookie Making Set, I also won an amazing prize for myself through Tired Mummy of Two's Christmas Tombola (same where Abby won the Moshi Monsters Cookie Making Set!) - A Kiehl's Skin Consultation plus £100 worth of their products! I was really glad to have won, and was amazed after the visit!

Yup! That's what I got from my skin consultation alone!

The staff at Manchester Trafford Centre were really friendly, and made me feel comfortable talking about my skin problems. After the chat, Lisa who looked after me has personalised the above amazing goodie bag for me to take home without a single try to sell me anything! I was too used to pushy sales in Asia ("Your skin looks aweful! Our product can bla bla bla") and felt that something wasn't right when I left! I thought that the consultation went too smooth and they were being too nice!

The generous travel size samples covered everything from my hair, body cleansing and moisturising, my face, and there was even something for hubby! After trying out their samples for a few weeks, I understood why they didn't try to sell me anything at the consultation. The products sold themselves and there really was no need to say anymore apart from telling me what each product do and how to use them.

I fell in love with the Nashi Blossom & Pink Grapefruit Liquid Body Cleanser and Skin-softening Body Lotion. The refreshing unisex fragrance stayed with me and I've received plenty of compliments from my family! My skin became instantly soft after using the lotion! Even the Body Scrub was amazing!

Also love their Midnight Recovery Concentrate, which lasted me a good 5 weeks (4ml sample bottle!)! And then there is their Ultra Facial MoisturiserUltra Light Daily Defense SPF 50 and Calendula Herbal Extract Alcohol-Free Toner (you can see hand picked flower petals in the bottle!) too!

And that wasn't the end of my prize! As promised, Kiehl's has sent me some full sized products based on the consultation results. I was absolutely thrilled to have received the full sized Midnight Recovery Concentrate because it was that good! I even recommended it on my Valentine's Day Gift Guide! I was ready to buy it myself, and glad that I have waited for the prize to arrive before buying!

They've also sent me a full size Ultra Facial Oil-free Cleanser, which kept my skin soft even though it's oil free! The Line-reducing Eye-brightening Concentrate with 10.5% Vitamin C did make my eyes brighter (skin area of course), though it can be a bit sticky so I use it at night instead. The Creme de Corps Soy Milk & Honey Whipped Body Butter smells a bit like mango, and as it's air whipped, it's a bit easier to spread than normal body butter, perfect for dry skin!

After using their products for a few weeks, my skin has become softer and younger. I'm just using up my last lot of skin care now before I'm going full Kiehl's. I've already bought their Ultra Light Daily Defense SPF 50 to be used on top of my daily moisturiser, and Acai Damage-repairing Serum as my day serum, which are what I'm lacking of at the moment.

Kiehl's Top to Toe Skin Consultation is free and you can book it directly with the store/ department you want to visit. You can find their store locator on their website. It's absolutely worth a visit and you'll be amazed with their lovely service and products as much as I am!

Be prepared to become one of their fans though! However, I do think it's worth investing a bit more (not that they are super expensive like Creme de La Mer!) on ourselves, after all, we all work hard and we surely deserve some pampering!

Have you won anything amazing lately that you'd like to share?
