Kiehl’s Apothecary Preparations, a personalized, in-store only service is truly customized skincare featuring potent concentrates that address an individuals unique skin concerns. This innovation is amongst the first in the skincare industry to bring bespoke skincare to the masses. This industry achievement is comprised of Kiehl’s Skin Strengthening Concentrate, plus two, individually selected Targeted Complexes. These pharmaceuticals herbal concentrates feature a blend of advanced ingredients are specially selected for each customer’s skin. Through an elevated consultation and diagnosis, customers are able to craft a personalized formula based on their two most significant skin concerns. Options include: redness, wrinkles, rough texture, large pores and dullness.
A week ago today, I was invited to experience the Apothecary Preparations at the Kiehl’s Georgetown location. JRINK Juices were provided and Katherine Elizabeth Photography was at the event to capture the moments.
A skincare specialist walked me thru several steps to create the perfect Apothecary Preparations exclusively for me.
Here’s how it works:
Step 1: Diagnosis. With the use of a dermatologist-inspired Skin Atlas, customers are guided by the Kiehl’s Skincare Specialist to assess and rank the severity of their skin concerns. The result of this consultation informs the Khiel’s Skincare Specialist the selection of the two essential Targeted Complexes that will comprise the customer’s unique formula.
Step 2: Personalization. Following the consultation, two skin-specific Targeted Complexes are selected to accompany Kiehl’s Skin Strengthening Concentrate. Each customer’s personalized box includes his or her name, details of her personal formal and directions for use. After activating the concentrate at home, Kiehl’s Apothecary Preparations should be applied as instructed after cleaning and before a moisturizer.
Step 3: Consultation is Complete. Once the Targeted Complexes are selected, the Apothecary Preparation’s components are enclosed in a personalized box for the customer, who then mixes them at home prior to first application. The result is a highly potent, tailor-made skincare treatment.
I’ve been a huge fan of Kiehl’s for over a decade now. Like all of the products at Kiehl’s products, their Apothecary Preparations custom serums are luxurious and make use of potent, natural extracts that all skin types can benefit from, even sensitive and aging skin. I also love the fact that you’re essentially getting two powerful serums in one, which in a way justifies the higher price point compared to Kiehl’s other serums (which typically costs $46 for a 1 oz bottle).
Kiehl’s Apothecary Preparations retails for only $95 and is worth every penny. Visit Kiehl’s to learn more and find a location near you!
