I'm used to Korean BB Creams, so when a Western brand decides to create one, it gets me curious and excited. Kiehl's has recently launched their Actively Correcting & Beautifying BB Cream, and I'll be sharing you some product swatches.
Kiehl's Actively Correcting & Beautifying BB Cream SPF50/PA+++ (P1,995.00/30ml)
About the Product:
THREE TRUE COLOR SHADES, CAREFULLY FORMULATED “THE KIEHL’S WAY”
Formulated with sensitive skins in mind, yet effective for all skin types, Kiehl’s Actively Correcting & Beautifying BB Cream SPF50/PA+++ is available in 3 shades – fair, light, natural. It offers instantly even skin tone coverage, true color hues and hydration all day.All three shades are:
• Fragrance free + Paraben free + Mineral oil free
• Dermatologist and allergy tested for sensitive skin
• Non-comedogenic – won’t clog pores
Fair | Light | Natural
I'm guessing my shade is Fair, as it literally disappeared on my skin and gave it a brighter look. But then, my face isn't really as white as the inner part of my arm, so maybe the next shade could work, too. (Or so I hope, since the one I have at home is the Light shade.)
Since Kiehl's wants us to try before we buy, do join "The Secret BB Swap", happening in all their stores for a limited time only.

Just bring your old BB cream with an SRP value of P500.00 or above, and have it exchanged for a travel size Actively Correcting & Beautifying BB Cream. This 5ml sample comes in a small tube and is valued at P332.50.
My adopted sister, Dawn, and I had our BB creams swapped in Kiehl's newest store, which is located in Shangri-la Plaza Wast Wing. They had a promo wherein the first 100 people who visits the store will get a free travel pouch with surprise Kiehl's products inside. No purchase required, but I'm not sure if all 100 pouches are already taken. If you do drop by, feel free to ask. It's really worth it!

If you're curious to see what the travel pouch holds, here it is! It contains a Kiehl's Clearly Corrective White Skin Brightening Exfoliator and a sachet of the new BB cream.
I have a new favorite Kiehl's store, and it's their newest branch in Shangri-la Plaza East Wing. Next time I'm buying something from Kiehl's, it would have to be from this branch. The place itself is nice, and the SAs who assisted us were also nice, polite, and they knew their stuff. Kiehl's also branches in Trinoma, PowerPlant, Greenbelt 5, SM Mall of Asia, and Alabang Town Center.
