Kiehl's, Greenbelt 5

The new extension to Greenbelt is fast approaching completion. A few restaurants are open, and some clothing stores are in place. I'm looking forward to the first Banana Republic in Manila (at last!), but what truly made me jump for joy was finding the Kiehl's store. Kiehl's has a great collection of body, face, and hair products, I particularly love the lip balm, the body lotion, and when I swim a lot, the shampoo that clarifies against chlorine build up. Prices are set against the dollar, so it wasn't unbelievably unreasonable. Sort of what you'd expect to pay for imported items.

And as I was the only customer and the saleslady was ready to make a sale, she knew to throw in a sample or two of some things she felt I might like. I know a few friends who will be happy to see the store open at last. No more requests to friends heading to HK or the US for a few items.

We were there last Sunday. My friend Jun got a lip balm, too! He says it's the best in the world... :-)

bearbrick - I've been a fan of their lip balm for awhile. It serves several purposes, lip balm, hand salve, makeup remover too!

Joey - lol, I knew you'd mention this! Yes, another means of spending our money!

I am so excited about Banana Republic! I had heard the Gap was opening here but had not heard about Banana Republic. That is so good! I hope they carry some of the larger sizes. I am a size 10 (American sizing) with a 33" inseam and I have the worst time trying to buy clothes here! BR doesn't ship to the Philippines so this is such great news for me!

Kikas, you and me both! If they don't sell size 14s, I'm going to picket the store!!!! lol

Looking forward to a few shopping sprees at BR, GB5.

I like the "Blue Herbal Moisturizer and Astringent". I got it in MOA.
