Kiehl’s, which reopened in a new-and-improved space at Lenox Square this spring, brings back old favorites and experiments with new ingredients this season. The biggest trend we noticed? So-called superfoods that aren’t for eating, but rather for dabbing on your face. Here are three (salad-worthy) products you’ll find in the new store this summer—plus a fourth new release to mark on your calendar.
Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Masque Kiehl’s has been developing masque products since the 1970s—but the newest contains (you guessed it) turmeric and cranberry seeds, which exfoliate the skin and give it a refreshed look with a rosy hue. Apply to a clean face, leave on for five to ten minutes, and rinse. Use up to three times a week. $32/2.5 oz.
Cilantro & Orange Extract Pollutant-Defending Masque Another masque—but this one’s for leaving on overnight. The thin layer left on while you sleep is intended to protect the skin from pollutants. $32/2.5 oz.
Dermatologist Solutions Nightly Refining Micro-Peel Concentrate It’s been called trendy to eat quinoa, but now it’s apparently just as cool to apply to your face. For the first time ever, Kiehl’s has experimented with this super food, using discarded husks as exfoliants. It’s gentle enough for nightly use, even on sensitive skin. $54/1 oz.
What’s Next? This September, Kiehl’s is taking it back to the origin of the brand (which, as it will proudly tell you on its packaging, is 1851), with the in-store Kiehl’s Apothecary Preparations. The Lenox Square location will be one of select stores where customers can get a personalized consultation for individualized remedies for skin and products. $95
