Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate

kiehls profile 24

Occasionally you find a product that you know makes a difference but if you had to explain why, it’s really hard.  That sounds odd, I know, but that’s exactly how I feel about Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate.

At £36 and designed to work at night and for the face, this elixir is a blend of essential oils including Lavender and Evening Primrose Oil, as well as Omega-6 Fatty Acids and helps to restore moisture to the skin so that your skin looks brighter by the morning.

All I need is a max of 3 drops which I press on to the cheeks and around the face and then I really like to take the time to massage this in.  As it is weightless it absorbs into the skin easily so you don’t get that greasy feeling.   You can use this on top of or under your moisturiser but I prefer to use it in place of my moisturiser which works fine for me and it comes with a dropper and plastic squeeze top, which means it’s very difficult to go overboard with this stuff as you won’t want to waste this!

I view this as a treat for my skin so I don’t follow a specific routine as to how often I use it.  Sometimes it’ll be once a week, sometimes once every two weeks or just when my skins needs a little pick me up and when I do, my skin just looks more alive the next morning, softer and brighter.

If you are on the look out for an overnight facial treatment then I think the Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate would be a great addition to your skin care routine as I think this product works wonders.  If you are lucky you can probably snap up a few samples in store as Kiehl’s are good with handing out samples.

So do you think this is something you would be interested in?  Let me know in the comments below.

  • i’m not kidding, this oil changed my skin and i can not praise it enough. it works amazingly for all skin typed and even my boyfriend likes using it on his very dry skin. it totally worth the price tag.

    • That’s so good this works for you and your boyfriend it really is a lovely product. xx

  • I’m a big fan of using oils on my face, and this one is a favorite of mine. I always notice my skin looks a bit better in the morning when I use a few of these drops before bed.

    • I know it really is good and i can see myself repurchasing this xx

    This product sounds amazing! Running around after three kids means I hardly have anytime to stick to a beauty regime but this is something I could easily do just before bed. I do find my complexion seems rather dull in the mornings so I will hopefully give this a go soon!
    Your photography is magazine quality too x

    • Thanks so much for stopping by and your lovely comments. I would recommend you try this out, like you said it’s easy to apply before you go to bed and hopefully you’ll see some good results. xx

  • I haven’t tried this yet but it’s definitely something that I’ll be looking into especially when winter will be on the way! 🙂

  • Great post, I’ve been wanting to try this product for ages!

  • I’ve heard amazing things about this oil. I have a good sized sample of it but have not tried yet because I’m forcing myself to finish what I have first, which are the Sarah Chapman oil (amazing) and the Marula Oil I received recently (also really good). But once at least one of them run out, I will definitely give this a go. x

    hahha I definitely know how you feel! there’s always that product that you just don’t know how to describe in words but you can somehow describe it in gestures like my favorite lotion. it just adds that “oomph!” and bounce in your step, if that makes sense 😉
    Anyways, I think I’ll add this to my neverending list of must-buy beauty products!
    Also, thank you so much for your lovely comment on my blog! 🙂

    • It is a lovely product and one I can see myself repurchasing when it runs out xx

  • I know exactly what you mean about not being able to put your finger on what a product is doing but when it comes to skincare, I think this is best. Any sudden miraculous results are usually short lived! I’ve tried a couple of bits from Keihls but am adding this to my list as we speak!

    • I know what you mean about products that work at first but then don’t perform the same as time goes on. Kiehls generally have really good ingredients in their products and I haven’t been disappointed with the skincare items. x

  • That’s true, kiehls’s are expensive but not that expensive. x

  • It sounds good. I actually never tried products by Kiehl’s. The products are super expensive so I’ll go for s sample size to test it I guess (:

    • I know they are expensive but they have some amazing stuff in their range xx

  • I’ve used this & loved it! I will definitely repurchase at some point! xx


  • I had a sample of this and used for 5 nights and, unfortunately, I didn’t see an immediate effects. I’m using currently the Midnight Recovery Eye Cream and I think it’s working really well to keep that part of my skin nicely hydrated. x

    • Always best to get samples as this is expensive. I really want to try the Midnight Recovery Eye Cream it’s on my wish list. x

    I’ve wanted to try out this oil for ages, it looks awesome!!

  • A lot of products say they’ll do wonders for your skin then at the end of the day the do absolutely nothing, but this definitely sounds like something I would invest in.
    I blog about jewelry and how to style jewelry with outfits, tell me what you think.

    • I know what you mean, definitely try and get a sample if you can, that way you’ll know if this works for you xx

  • I really need to try this, I’ve read so many amazing things about it! xx
