Founded by Alli Sim, a former Beauty Editor and currently a marketing communication professional, Mmerci Encore brings you a bespoke, holistic and natural bath and skincare experience. Every product under this name, which means “Thank you again” in French, is produced using botanical ingredients sourced from all over the world, but blended and packaged by hand in her aromatherapie atelier located in Singapore.  There are also no preservatives, parabens, sulphates or other debatable chemicals added.

The “au naturel” approach extends to the packaging – even the ingredient list in the packaging label is handwritten.

With the Christmas giving season approaching, it’s time for the mad gift-shopping in town. What are the options for the office gift exchange, or Secret Santa activity at your friend’s house party?

Of course, bath and body sets are probably the most unisex and appropriate gifts for friends. Here are some “tried-and-tested” recommendations, where the scent and products are of commendable quality, tailored for the discerning friends and colleagues.

1. Kiehl’s Aromatic Blends

It’s review time! No, not so much performance appraisal but just a little review of some of the products I received from Kiehl’s. As you can tell, I’m doing a BATHING theme for this review – complete with a rather graphic illustration (above).

1. Gently Exfoliating Body Scrub – Pear Tree Corner ($43)

I selected the Pear Tree Corner scrub for its delicious pear smell. The scrub consists of natural particles that gives you a good sense of exfoliating comfort without being abrasive. The aftermath of a satisfying scrub is the pleasant and refreshing smell of pear, and the smooth and dewy texture of the skin. The scrub contains aloe vera and chamomile, which helps to moisturize the skin.

A large tube of 200ml can last a long time. For $43, it’s quite a reasonable buy!

The Body Scrub also comes in Coriander, Grapefruit and Lavender fragrance.

2. Epidermal Retexturizing Microdermabrasion ($92)

This is a face scrub with a naturally-derived exfoliant – the Micronized Shells (Diatomatious Earth) – that helps to reduce dead cells at the epidermis of the skin. The scrub also promises to minimize pores and reduce fine lines. However, it is advised that you use this scrub only 2-3 times a week.

As the face is very sensitive, the exfoliating particles is very small and rather soothing to the face. I massaged the scrub for about 30-50 seconds before I wash the face. The instant effect? It makes the skin soft and velvety, although there will some very slight redness initially due to the exfoliation.

Typical of Kiehl’s face products, the microdermabrasion scrub is fragrance and acid-free. As such, it is less likely to irritate the skin. While the pore reduction was not significant after 4 usages (2 weeks), I find this an effective yet gentle facial scrub which provides immediate soft and radiant skin after each use.

While price is on the high side, I would recommend this as an investment if you believe in the importance of facial scrubs.

3. Rice & Wheat Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner (Shampoo: $41, Conditioner: $43)

I wanted to do a hair product review to fit the “Bathing” theme and in my stack Kiehl’s samples, I found the Rice & Wheat Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner that I could try. The samples lasted me for about 3 days!

Both the shampoo and conditioner had a pleasant floral scent. The hairwash experience was nice, but not exceptional. While the shampoo and conditioner are supposed to volumise flat and thin hair, I couldn’t notice much difference after 3 washes. Of course, this could be due to the fact that I already had rather thick hair to begin with.

Are there any Kiehl’s products that you would strongly recommend?

Let me know and I will go down to the Kiehl’s store and grab some samples for myself. You can do that too! Then we can all be Kiehl’s samplers and share information with each other! 🙂
