Kiehl’s Product Reviews

I must admit that I’m going through an @KiehlsCanada  phase right now. I’m smitten with a few of their products and I can’t get enough of the brand – and If you’re unfamiliar with this line, know that it was a New York pharmacy started in 1851. (The brand is now owned by L’Oreal Paris). Their […]
