Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate | Worth The Splurge?

Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate review

Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate is one of those products that had been on my wish list for absolutely ages. I’d read so many rave reviews about the product and been recommended it several times, but I could never quite bring myself to part with £38 in the name of beauty – until recently, that is!

At £38, Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate is not the cheapest skincare product out there. However, if there’s one skincare brand out there that I 100% trust, it’s Kiehl’s. So upon noticing the Kiehl’s counter at Debenhams on a recent trip to Liverpool I decided to cave in and give it a go!

First, I have to mention that the lady who served me at the Kiehl’s counter at Debenhams in Liverpool was just so lovely! It makes such a nice change to go up to a counter and not have an over-salesy sales assistant, but one that just comes across as being friendly and helpful – big thumbs up from me!

Kiehl’s Midnight Recover Concentrate is a readily-absorbed elixir made from a blend of natural ingredients and essential oils, and promises to restore and replenish your skin while you sleep. If you’ve been following my blog for a while you might know just how much I love lavender. So when I found out that Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate contains lavender oil, I had a feeling I would really like the product, especially as it is designed to be used at bedtime. Other ingredients include Evening Primrose Oil to repair the skin and boost radiance, as well as Squalane, a botanical liquid which help to restore the skin’s natural moisture balance.

The lady at the Kiehl’s counter advised that I use 2 drops of this every night, patting it gently into my skin until it is absorbed (and she also informed me that the smaller 30ml bottle should last approximately 9 months, which made the splurge a bit easier to come to terms with!). When I applied this to my skin for the first time I noticed that it was very easily absorbed – probably around 30 seconds – and it left no greasy feeling on my skin either. It also has a gorgeous, delicate scent from the lavender oil, which is so relaxing before going to bed.

As I’d read so many positive reviews about the product, I knew I should expect great things from it. However, I had no idea that I would start to notice a difference to my skin from the very first morning! The morning after using the product for the first time I noticed that my skin felt so much softer than usual – in fact, I couldn’t remember the last time it felt so smooth. My skin also had a noticeable glow, which is something that I never experienced with any skincare product before. My skin actually looked great before I put any foundation on!

I’ve continued to use the product religiously every night and my skin has never looked or felt better than it has since I started using it. If you’ve been deliberating over whether to splurge out on the Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate, I would highly recommend that you go for it! Taking all things into consideration, £38 is a small price to pay for amazing skin!
