You can probably imagine my absolute delight when I saw work beginning on the new Kiehl's shop on Avinguda de Jaume III in Palma, Mallorca.
Well, cut to 2 months later and Kiehl's is now open! *rapturous applauds*
And so, to test drive (with great pleasure) the goods. First up we have Amino Acid Shampoo (€17 for 250ml) and Rice & Wheat Volumizing Conditioning Rinse (€21 for 250ml). I called in head 'product development tester' for this treat - Miss Katy Rexstrew, and as 'an everyday hair washer' she was impressed with the results, as no sooner were we out of the store, that the products were lathering in her hair. This is what she reported back:
Amino Acid Shampoo: 'I squeezed an amount the size of a 20 cent piece (Euro not US) into the palm of my hand, and as the sales rep said, a little goes a long way. Not only did it lather up really well, but my hair felt squeaky clean after.'
Rice & Wheat Volumizing Conditioning Rinse: 'Needed a little more than the shampoo, the texture was not too creamy, there was no residue once rinsed out (big thumbs up) and left hair really soft and not a tangle in sight.'
'Both products were not overly fragranced and you really did get that salon washed feeling. Highly recommended, full marks 10 out of 10. Cute no-fuss packaging too!'
Katy's hair is shoulder length, fair in colour, but products are suitable for a variety of hair types.
I shall be trying out my (Afro) hair specific product at a later date, in the meantime tomorrow's review will concentrate on Kiehl’s Cucumber Herbal Toner and Damage Correcting Moisturiser.....
