This is my first ever Kiehl’s and I had to get it after reading all the raves especially from dry skin beauties and looking at my heavily dehydrated skin.
Midnight Recovery Concentrate is basically a magic potion with a unique blend of essential oils which adds a immense boost of hydration to the skin overnight (not to forget with added benefit of essential oils) making it soft supple healthy & glowy. And I must say it delivers what it claims. I noticed a hugeeeee difference in my skin within a week. I was having a terrible dry skin post pregnancy with all dullness and dry patches but ever since I started using this, there was a healthy supple & soft skin. Though it doesn’t claim any complexion correction I did noticed my skin getting clearer day by day. It has got a lighter consistency and gets absorbed into skin with a few pats (Kiehl’s recommend to pat the oil rather than massaging as oils just sits on the skin surface if you massage it without giving you much benefits while patting helps it to penetrate). The product is heavily oil based but extremely light and can be used by oily skin too without any issues. The soothing lavender fragrance is very relaxing and helps to sleep better.
The product is housed in a thick dark blue coloured glass bottle with a dropper. I love the so thoughtful packaging which makes absolute sense without any product wastage and when all you need is a very tiny amount for single use.
Though I don’t have any issues with the product and love it to core (have been using this since 4 months), now when the weather is getting on chilling side I don’t find this alone helping with the dryness. I have naturally very dry skin which just drinks up moisturizer or lotions in a jiffy! Previously I was using it in combination with my serum and it was working amazingly but now I do require a night cream with this. So if you have dry skin like me might not be sufficient alone during colder months.
In a nutshell: highly highly recommended!!!! It does what it claims without any compromise. Though pricey but you need a tiny amount every time and a single bottle lasts atleast couple of months. I have been using mine more than 4 months now managed to reach a little more than half bottle.
