When it comes to Grand Central in Birmingham, one of my favourite stores to stop into has to be Kiehl’s. I’ve often mentioned them on Twitter for their excellent service and much prefer coming to the stand alone store than heading to one of their concessions in the bigger department stores. I went for a facial at the Grand Central Kiehl’s store and for a chat about some of the icons of the Kiehl’s range.
For my facial, I was seated in a reclining chair in a corner of the store, which felt a little more private and we had a chat about my skin. My skin was assessed and then suitable products were selected to address my skin concerns. I liked that there wasn’t a limit to how many products could be used and if there was anything in particular that I wanted to try then I could ask for it to be included.
I am a huge fan of Kiehl’s products and my bathroom shelf does feature a number of their iconic products such as the Daily Reviving Concentrate (reviewed here), the Midnight Recovery Oil, and Creme de Corps. From my experience with Kiehl’s, these products are worth the investment and it seems that a lot of customers agree as these are some of their best sellers.
Throughout the facial, every product was explained to me from how it is used, what benefits each product has and why it was recommended for my skin. This allowed me to discover some new products that I hadn’t tried before and ask lots of questions.
My skin was cleansed and various products were used to deep clean, exfoliate and hydrate my skin. After nearly an hour, I was left with glowing plump skin that looked really clear. When I got home my magnifying mirror confirmed that my pores were looking really clear, which was pleasing.
If you do decide to pop by to the Grand Central Kiehl’s, whether it’s for a facial or a five-minute consultation, do take advantage of their free sample offer (see here).
