They don't promote it as much, but when you bring back 3 empty full-sized bottles to their stores, you can get a deluxe sample. I also turned in some containers of deluxe samples, but they don't count as points. I just felt that it was better to return it to them rather than throwing it in the trash.
I was able to unearth these bottles at home when I was cleaning, and so I had it exchanged to a cute mini tub of Kiehl's Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel Cream. The size is so perfect for travel!
Now I am excited to finish my Kiehl's Amino Acid Shampoo so I could choose another one from their magical deluxe sample box. I'm hoping this tiny tub of moisturizer I got will work for me, since I just ran out of my current gel moisturizer and am looking for a new one to buy. (It does look so harmless, with its light texture and all.) :D
Have you tried returning your old Kiehl's bottles for recycling? Rewards await!
