I have a review post for you today, for the Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate that I picked up from Space NK last month. I had seen this in a lot of pamper routines on Youtube, and had heard even more about it on the internets :p. I was intrigued, because usually I wouldn’t really go for an oil or oil based product for my skin and I wanted to give it a go.
This oil is meant to restore health and glow to the skin, pretty much overnight, providing a dramatic difference in the health of your skin. This is quite a claim! I started using this at night (duh) a few weeks ago and have to say I don’t think it’s an every day product. I like the scent, it’s not too overpowering and actually is quite a nice smell to have around (questionable wording there) just before bed time, especially after a bath or shower.
The bottle itself has a little pipette built into the lid which I think is a great idea. I can’t think of a better way to dispense this product, especially as it’s an oil and it reminds me of playing with pipettes back in science lessons (embarrassing).
I tend to spread a line of this oil onto the inside of my forefinger and the two fingers next to them, and rub it against my palms to warm the oil up before I apply it to my face. I make sure this is well rubbed into my skin, also making sure to apply it to my neck as well. Luckily this oil isn’t too greasy on the skin, don’t get me wrong you can easily apply too much of this, and even at the right amount you can see a hint of it on the surface.
I think a dramatic difference overnight is a bit of an over egged claim, I think it has helped to keep my skin looking fresh and blowy but not necessarily improved it a massive amount. I have to say it definitely hasn’t moisturised as much as I thought it would, and have found myself reaching for my night cream for areas that are particularly troublesome.
Overall, I think I will be using this on nights where I think that my skin needs to be soothed with something more natural based, rather than using it when my skin looks bad. There is something quite luxurious feeling about using this product, I can’t quite put my finger/pipette on it, but it feels really lovely to apply.
Have any of you guys used this product? Or anything else from the Kiehl’s range?
Thank you for reading 🙂
