Kiehl's shop-in-shop at The Bay Pacific Centre

The Bay at Pacific Centre was the landing spot for Kiehl's first ever Canadian shop-in-shop. Shelly Rosenwald, Senior Vice President of The Bay's cosmetics department, Kristin Armstrong, Kiehl's Canada's Vice President General Manager, Donna Paty, Kiehl's National Education Manager, and local designer, Jason Matlo, joined shoppers and media to celebrate the special opening event.
 The shop-in-shop was designed to emulate the atmosphere of their New York flagship store, and will bring the full Kiehl's experience to shoppers.
 I took the opportunity to sniff their new Aromatic Blends collection!! If you are a fan of fruity sweet scents you should definitely check it out!
 Kiehl's teamed up with local designer Jason Matlo to create a special edition T-shirt featuring a fantastically blinged out Mr. Bones. All proceeds from the sale of the T-shirt will go to Camp Goodtimes, a charity which organises Summer camp for children with cancer.
 Jason and his team spent over 50 hours bedazzling Mr. Bones with over 30,000 Swarovski crystals. This dapper Mr. Bones will be a permanent feature at the shop-in-shop.
 The artist with his work. Funny story, I later found out that Jason and I have mutual friends. Talk about 6 degrees of separation.
There is a plan to introduce the shop-in-shop concept to Bay stores across Canada, but in the meantime you visit them the next time you are in downtown Vancouver. Ask one of their awesome technicians for a skin analysis and pick up some great skincare!

p.s what would a post on Kiehl's be without the famous Kiehl's dog? Fresh from a bath with Kiehl's Cuddly Coat <3>


  1. The event looks awesome! Especially the blinged out skeleton! :)


    He also still looks like a giant puff-ball.

  3. I remember reading your old posts about Kiehl's so i was curious a few months ago when I was wandering through Chicago killing time. I'm still a bit on the fence with their stuff. I think the only thing i've liked so far is their Creme D'Elegance because it surprisingly helped me with a case of really dry skin I had with my eczema flare. I also got a sample of midnight oil recommended to use around my eyes, but I'm not sure if it's really working. I kind of want to look into their Eye Alert. Do you still use it?

    1. The Eye Alert is good if you're just looking for a basic eye cream to moisturise the under eye area without breaking it out but I haven't noticed it doing anything for dark circles or puffiness :/
      The Midnight Oil made a huge difference for me during the Winter, without it my skin is so dry in the mornings from all the indoor heating.
