Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate

There has been a lot of hype around this product online in both blogs and YouTube videos. I wanted to see for myself if it really would make a difference to my skin. My skin type is fairly dehydrated  with some very dry patches but I do get the odd blemish as well. Using an oil based product on my skin felt like an odd concept as I didn't want my skin to go to the opposite extreme and become really oily.

The Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate claims to replenish 99.8% of skins moisture and its naturally derived ingredients help to recover skins radiance.

My bottle with limited edition packaging

I have been using this product for several weeks now and have to say I have really noticed a difference in the way my skin looks and feels. This is the only thing I have changed to my usual night time skincare routine so I know it is making a real difference to my skin.

I use only a few drops of the product after cleansing and before applying my moisturiser. It sinks easily into my skin without leaving it feeling oily. It has defiantly evened out my skin clearing most of my dry patches and I have had less blemishes. 

 I went away for a few days a didn't take it with me and it started to show instantly. After the second night of not using it, my skin felt dry again when I woke up and didn't look as naturally radiant. 

The original packaging

This product is defiantly a staple in my skincare routine now. I was initially sceptical but am now a massive fan. The initial price seems high at £36.00 however because you only need 2-3 drops of it a night the bottle will last a very long time. 

I bought my bottle when it was on a Brand Match offer from John Lewis so managed to save an extra 10%. There isn't currently a Brand Match offer on however they do have them regularly so it may be worth waiting for one if your interested in buying this product. 

You may notice my bottle looks a little different to the standard Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate bottle, this is because I chose to buy the limited edition version as Kiehl's have teamed up with Alicia Keys and the Keep a Child Alive. Kiehl's is donating $200,000 to the Keep a Child Alive foundation which helps children all around the world.
