Kiehl's 5 Minute Consultation - My Experience

As I've probably blabbered on about before I work in Duty Free at Gatwick Airport and one upside to being a beauty blogger and a absolute nutter about makeup I get to work with some amazing consultants and amazing brands. I get to try the makeup out and really get to learn about the brands and their products.
Today I had a spare 10 minutes so the lovely lady on our Kiehl's counter Nicky asked me if I wanted to have a 5 minute consultation, of course I said yes! Now if you don't know about Kiehl's consultations they sit with you for 5 minutes to find out about your concerns and then at the end you get to take away 5 samples to try before you buy. Amazing...YES!

They ask you to fill out 6 quick questions so they can see what your concerns are and what will be the best 5 samples to give you to try to correct/help those concerns. They also do this paper test on your forehead and cheek to see how oily or dry your skin is. My outcome is I have a oily forehead and dry cheeks. My concerns were first signs of skin damage and lines and wrinkles. I know i'm only 23 this year but I have definitely noticed some fine lines and they say its best to start early with your anti ageing skincare routine. I also stated that I was unhappy with the texture of my skin and my uneven skin tone. They then ask you what are your eye concerns, mine being fine line and wrinkles again and hydration and comfort. And the last question being do you use a sun screen (I very embarrassingly had to say no I don't!) So what were my suggested samples...

This beautifying BB cream is available in three shades; Light, Medium and Dark. It claims to instantly perfect and visibly corrects the appearance of skin tone irregularities with daily use. It also has a SPF 50.

I am so excited to try these products out and maybe if I like them purchase the full size. I fully recommend going to a Kiehl's counter and getting a 5 minute consultation! Go check out the Kiehls site to find your nearest store/counter and also to see what products they offer.

Have you tried Kiehl's before? What are your thoughts on the brand?
