Kiehl’s Manila Valentines Contest

My prize as a 3rd runner up!

The Contest

Winning something from an online contest makes my heart jump! There are a lot of online contest that I am joining especially when I have spare time from work and wifey duties. The thrill of it relaxes me 🙂

Kiehl's Valentines Contest

Around February, I made a little shopping once again at Kiehl’s store. The SA told me that they have a contest on FB for couples. I really asked my husband to join me so I can get a chance to win 🙂 After half an hour of convincing him.. he said YES! saying to pose like this as the SA recommended was truly a big deal to me.

I had fun and posted it right away on my fb wall and tagged Kiehl’s Manila facebook. A lot of my friends sent an sms/ fb message about that picture! It was a fleeting moment!

Aside from posing at Kiehl’s store while holding Kiehl’s clearly corrective dark spot solution with you partner… the picture posted on their wall should have a lot of “likes” , since I have a few selected friends on my facebook… my chances were small!!! heck, I braved messaging my family and friends from PR field (Manila Bulletin and Philippine Star) to like my photo since I am die-hard fan of Kiehl’s.

As Kiehl’s  announced the winner before February ends, I let go the idea that I’m gonna win because the other competitors almost reached a thousand likes! yay. Fortunately since it was the first contest of Kiehl’s they also gave a loot to participants! So, we were 3 contestants and I assumed that my place is 3rd 😉

Ms. Lala Agregado (Kiehl's Store Operations Manager)

Kiehl’s store operations manager, Ms. Lala Agregado set an appointment this week to meet me today (April 27, 2012) in able to give my prize personally. Note: She just came back from Hong Kong for a business trip and  met me first before heading to their main office!

Lala, as she preferred to be called, is a humble beautiful woman with sun kissed skin and amazing surfer body!. We enjoyed talking about beauty products and my horrifying story before I switched to Kiehl’s.

Then she explained to me how to use the products, one by one. (which deserves a good review upon usage, so wait for that!)

in random order:

Acai Damage-Protecting Toning Mist (50 ml)

Ultra facial cleanser (travel size)

Skin Brightening Exfoliator (travel size)

Clearly corrective white clarity-activating toner (travel size)

Clearly corrective foaming cleanser (travel size)

Clearly corrective white emulsion (travel size)

Sunflower color preserving shampoo (travel size)

Facial Fuel energizing moisture treatment for men (travel size)

Double Strength Deep Wrinkle Filler (20 ml)

Isn’t it great? 🙂

I love toning mist from Evian especially when summer comes and I think I just found a better replacement which is the Acai (pronounced as: A-SA-I) 

Why I say so? As I went home… I already sprayed Acai damage-protecting toning mist to my face and it is just so cool and leaves my face matte and more radiant! another magical product from Kiehl’s 🙂

Short story on how I fell in love with Kiehl’s

Couple of months ago… I raved about my newly discovered skincare product which is Kiehl’s! during that time, I was suffering from serious acne attack caused by medication to fight ulcer pain. That was the time that even OBAGI doesn’t work its magic on me and it’s frustrating.

In my desperation to find a new skincare products that will save me from acne attack, I saw a temporary Kiehl’s store in Trinoma. During that time, I remember how international bloggers rave about it and yeah, I know… blame it to them because I am influenced easily by beauty bloggers.

Without hesitation, I asked their SA what line of skin regimen that I can start with for oily, acne and acidic skin. They answered me in details and was very accommodating. I am sold!

My skin loved the Blue Herbal line and Kiehl’s Rare Earth Deep Pore Daily Cleanser. Since, then I become a Kiehl’s loyal consumer.


Thank you so much Kiehl’s for the lovely loot from your Valentines contest. It was a pleasure to meet Ms. Lala Agregado! Better late than never 😉
