Kiehl's, Thanksgiving


This Holiday season, Kiehl’s Philippines invites you to put your best skin forward by making three of their most trusted serums part of your everyday routine


MANILA, Philippines – The Holidays are a joyous time where friends and families come together to celebrate the magic of Christmas. However, the stress of the holidays can sometimes get to us. Last-minute gift shopping, dinners, parties, and even leisurely travel can take its toll on your skin. Good thing Kiehl’s provides targeted solutions to common skin concerns that can especially plague us during the holidays when all we want to do is put our best face forward during reunions and get-togethers.

Since the launch of the Midnight Recovery Concentrate in 2010 Kiehl’s has pioneered and slowly incorporated serums in almost every Filipino’s skin care routine. With the promise of reducing fine lines, improving texture, and boosting radiance in just one night, the serum in the blue bottle quickly became a cult favorite and a staple for many who can’t seem to complete an 8 hour sleep cycle whether it’s because of work, family, or leisure.

In 2013, Kiehl’s won the hearts of Filipino all over again with the launch of the Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution—a serum with Activated C—that effectively diminishes the appearance of hyperpigmentation, dark spots, and acne marks. The dark spot serum quickly rose to fame as more and more customers attested to its efficacy at improving the overall radiance and clarity of the skin. In 2017, it overtook the Midnight Recovery Concentrate as Kiehl’s #1 serum. In the same year, it also became Kiehl’s #1 product in the Philippines.

Just last year, Kiehl’s launched its new & improved super serum—the Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate. With 10.5 % L-Ascorbic Acid, 2% Vitamin Cg and fragmented Hyaluronic Acid, this Vitamin C serum boasts instantly visible results that last. This newcomer is slowly creating buzz among skincare enthusiasts looking for potent anti-aging and re-texturizing products.

This Holiday season, Kiehl’s Philippines makes a pre-holiday glow possible for everyone with a routine consisting of the brand’s most trusted serums: the Clearly Corrective Dark Spot SolutionPowerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate, and the Midnight Recovery Concentrate.  Whether you’ll be up all night partying, or catching up with your most outspoken friends or aunts.  Kiehl’s is here to find the best serum for you.

Kiehl’s Philippines Thanksgiving Event
On October 15, 2019, the team at Kiehl’s Philippines invited friends from the media and selected guests to a Thanksgiving event at The Peak, Grand Hyatt Hotel, in Bonifacio Global City. This special event allowed Kiehl’s to thank media and friends for a fruitful year. At the same time, Kiehl’s helped them find their pre-holiday glow up routine through a uniquely engaging “Which Serum Are You?” lifestyle quiz.

According to Joan Hwang, Senior Product Manager of Kiehl’s, “This event was inspired by the age-old American Thanksgiving tradition. Kiehl’s started as a New York City Apothecary that has been around since 1851. And our heritage could not be this rich without Friends of Kiehl’s who have constantly supported us. We wanted to treat our media partners and friends to a unique and personalized experience done the Kiehl’s way, and what better way to do that than to remind them of Kiehl’s most beloved products: our Power Serums. Midnight Recovery Concentrate, Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution, and Powerful Strength Line Reducing Concentrate are anyone’s best bet to get a quick fix before the holiday season starts.”
