USA Hotspot #8 & #9: C Wonder & Kiehl’s
This will probably be my last American Hotspots post (try saying that out loud very fast… just kidding). I really hope you enjoyed them (and try them out!)
C Wonder is located in Soho, but not in the main street (Broadway). I’ve discovered it in october 2011, even though I’ve been to NYC plenty of times before.
The style is very east coast/new england (same spirit as J. Crew for example), I love it! Very colorful, full of prints,…
The shop is amazingly beautiful, and you can find clothes, accessories, bags, furnitures,…
C Wonder is in the same price range as J. Crew, maybe even a little lower.

I guess you all know Kiehl’s, the beauty product brand. I’ve known the brand for many years, but only tried it a few months ago. I have to say I was convinced by some of their products, but they were kind of expensive to buy in Brussels.
I got interested by the brand, read their story and learned they started in Manhattan. As soon as I read that, I knew I wanted to discover the shop, the actual, the first Kiehl’s shop that had ever existed (and maybe take home some of their products since it’s cheaper than buying it in Brussels).
The shop is really big and looks like a pharmacy (like all of their shops), and even the retailers are dressed like pharmacist, it’s kind of funny.
They have like a thousand of different products, for every part of your body from head to toe, and your hair, obviously.
The decoration of the shop is really amazing! Take a look at it.
I went home with a hair mask Superbly Smoothing Argan Hair Pak , I decided not to go for more since I had already bought a ton of Bumble&Bumble products (which are my all time favorite)
