Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate Review

Hello Ladies of IMBB!

How is everybody doing? It’s been a long time since my last post, but I have been checking all the product reviews and articles that are being posted on the blog. Today, I am reviewing Midnight Recovery Concentrate from Kiehl’s.  Well, I have a soft corner for the brand Kiehl’s.  All their products are natural and organic, as you all know. I really wanted to try this product for a long time. It has won so many awards (22 international awards, can you imagine : o ???) since it has been introduced in the market. Today here I am, finally bought it : )

Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate

Main Ingredients:

Squalane: A signature Kiehl’s ingredient, Squalane is a botanical lipid that is similar in molecular structure to natural skin lipids. It has an exceptional affinity to skin, and because it’s easily absorbed, Squalane helps restore skin’s natural moisture balance to keep it extra soft and supple. And all other ingredients, you can see in the pictures posted.

My Experience with Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate:

I have been using this for a week now. If you can see in the picture I posted, its texture is really transparent and it is very lightweight. It is also non greasy. It is like an elixir that gets absorbed into the skin right away.  I apply every night after my night regimen. Soon after applying it, my skin gets really smooth because it is made of nothing but naturally derived oils. My skin type is combination, means I get really oily on my T-zone and very dry on my cheeks. After applying the concentrate, you won’t feel oily or shiny at all.

It’s just like magic, vanishes into the skin. Hence you don’t have to worry if you are sleeping with your face down on pillow like me ; ) Since it has been only a week, I do not really see any change in my skin except the dewy look when I wake up. Whenever I test a product, I would really like to use it alone to see the exact results. So I did not use any moisturizer over the concentrate.  Kiehl’s brand has amazing confidence in this product and if we are not satisfied with the results within 28 days, they will give our money back. Well, I am really not doing that because I can feel my skin getting hydrated. The design of the bottle is pretty simple, but it is really thoughtful. I am talking about the dropper aids in mess-free application. Overall, I am satisfied with this product.
