Kiehl's Midnight Recovery range is one of their most beloved, consisting of the Midnight Recovery Concentrate and Midnight Recovery Eye. Kiehl's started off as a pharmacy, so in line with the brand's philosophy, the emphasis here is not on snazzy marketing or packaging, but on the efficiacy of the products - that these are products that are actually supposed to work.
The award-winning Midnight Recovery Concentrate is the star of the line, so special attention was paid to that. It is comprised mainly of plant oils, and Kiehl's claims it is comprised of 98% naturally derived ingredients.
The thing that struck me about the Midnight Recovery Concentrate was how, although it was primarily comprised of oils, it was very light in texture, and easily absorbed. You get a light, yellow oil with a very thin texture, and a gorgeous herbal/lavender smell. I know scents can be a hate-it-or-love-it thing, but I personally love it, as the scent of all the botanical oils is kinda almost like aromatherapy.
For a complete routine, you can start with an exfoliator (Kiehl's has its own Clearly Corrective Skin Brightening Exfoliator), followed by a toner, (Kiehl's also has a Clearly Corrective Clarity Activating Toner), then followed by the Midnight Recovery Eye, which is massaged at the eye bone area. Like the Midnight Recovery Concentrate, the Midnight Recovery Eye also has a very pleasant botanical smell.
To apply the Midnight Recovery Concentrate, dispense 2-3 drops from the dropper into your palm (the amount to use is shown in the photo above), and pat the concentrate with both palms. Then, apply and massage on your face with both palms, and finish off with your desires moisturizer (if you have particularly dry skin). If you love the scent, it is also definitely worth enjoying. Although the product is an oil, it is also suitable for oily skin.
So that's a brief introduction to the line. If time allows, I'll be trying out the Midnight Recovery Concentrate and will keep you guys posted on how it goes!
