i am going to new york and it is about half price there. i am planning to get some of the creme de corps and lip balm and silk groom.
is there anything else that is good and worth buying?

Their lip balm is fab!

I used to.

I agree about the lip balm 100% - both in a pot and the stick.

The yellow body lotion is fab as is the blue toner and the hair conditioner.

I'd forgotten about Kiehl's. sad

They do a pear bubble bath that I LOVE, it is limited edition and you can't get it in the UK <sulks>. I sometimes use the baby wash on DS; it doesn't smell terribly natural! even though it is, but it is very gentle. And the Creme de Corp is fab, as you know.

that's the lotion i was thinking of! creme de corps.

it's fab.

the conditioner was one of the best i have ever used.
the kiels in new york will also give you about 10000000 samples (just tell them what you are interested in and they will give you a huge bag - i keep them for travelling ....

some great skin care products .....

I really, really like the Olive Fruit shampoo and conditioner.

oohhh exciting. i got some samples from clinique in town today and nearly fainted, usually you have to prise them out of their hands!

Kiehl's Creme de Corps body lotion is fab. AND they now do a Creme de Corps shower wash!!!!!!!!!!!! Equally fab in the middle of winter when my skin decides to fall off in protest at the lack of sun.

The olive shampoo & conditioner makes my hair (thick, wavy curly, used to be super-soft, now getting coarser with age) all frizzy. I think it would be better for hair that isn't thick/wavy - or, perhaps to be honest, is younger than mine.

I like the tea tree shampoo - it has a faint sandalwood touch which reminds me of the long-gone days of dousing self in patchouli oil. But rather subtler. I also kid myself it means I won't get nits.

The heavy-duty conditioner (think it's called something along those lines) is good, though also tends a bit to frizzifying. The leave-in conditioner (coconutty scent, like gorse flowers in May) is excellent and suppresses frizz well. Also recently have taken to their silk groom serum, for same reason.

Big reason I like Kiehl's so much is the subtlety of the scents - when you're used to those, everything else catches the back of your throat.

Dh uses the amino acid shampoo & looks nice; but then he has ridiculously good hair for a man of his age.

so whats the difference between the silk goom and the silk groom serum?

The hand cream - only thing which works on my crusty knuckles. Isn't too greasy and easily absorbed.
