Kiehl’s Launches Apothecary Preparations For Custom Skin Care Products


Customization is hot right now in the beauty world. So many cosmetics companies are now offering personalized skin care products and even services. Kiehl’s is the latest to the market with this. It is offering Apothecary Preparations. That is a full personalized customer skin care service in selected retail stores.

Apothecary Preparations starts with customer interaction consisting of an intensive discussion with a Kiehl’s customer service rep about the key skin concerns that the client is having. The rep will then diagnose the skin concerns and the client then is directed to selete two essential Targeted Complexes. These are used to create a personal skin care formula for the client.
