Kiehl’s Robson – Grand Re-Opening (July 26th)

To celebrate the relocation, on their July 26th opening day, Kiehl’s will be hosting their widely-known “Shop For a Cause” initiatives. On that day, 100% of sales proceeds will be donated to Vancouver’s local Canucks for Kids Fund. Vancouver Canucks alumni Dave Babych will also be on hand to ring the official “store-opening bell” and launch “Shop for the Cause”.

True to its apothecary roots from the mid 1800’s, the new look of Kiehl’s on Robson features exposed brick walls, marble countertops and sterile looking stainless steel shelves, drawers and cabinets. To support Kiehl’s high standards of environmental responsibility, the brick walls and hardwood floor are both derived from reclaimed materials. Bright lights and neon signage with retro logos gives the store a modern twist. A shiny glass chandelier hangs from the ceiling (the original Kiehl’s in New York had multiple chandeliers). The iconic Mr. Bones, a teaching skeleton which is a reminder of the brand’s commitment to science and education, stands casually in a white lab coat by a display of lotions (not potions!) in stacked cubic shelves…


Modern Mix Man – Kiehl’s No Shine Lip Balm

Ideal for dry, parched lips, this product moisturizes with jojoba oil and shea butter; soothes and protects against cold weather. At $12, it’s great value for money. There is also a slight peppermint scent to it, for refreshed lips to go with fresh breath. The no-shine formula keeps the lips moisturized with a matte finish, in a well-kept manly way, without that glassy lipgloss look. You can test it on the back your hand at the Kiehl’s store just to make sure!
