Exciting news from Kiehl's: next month, the 160-year-old brand is opening its first-ever spa. Spa 1851, located on the second floor of a new store in New York City, will feature treatments for hair, skin, and body. Naturally, all will incorporate the same Kiehl's products that have earned a cult following — after all, what would a body treatment be without the classic Creme de Corps lotion? — but guests can expect added perks like customized, hand-blended masks used in facials.
The spa and men's grooming lounge, set to open mid-July, is likely to appeal to both women and men. It has a private entrance separate from the store, iPads for guest use, eco-friendly robes, and exclusive Havaianas sandals for wear during treatments. In building the spa, Kiehl's incorporated sustainable woods, subway tile accents, countertops made with recycled paper, and reclaimed tin ceilings. The three treatment rooms feature chandeliers inspired by the original Kiehl's apothecary, along with art such as a rainforest photo mural by famed photographer David LaChapelle. Pretty fresh for a 160-year-old, we say. Score what's sure to be a coveted appointment by calling (888) SPA-1851.
