Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate

There are some people who love beauty and grooming products. They obsess over the ritual of cleansing and getting ready. I’m not really one of those people. I’m more of a wash-my-face-put-on-a-shirt type person. That said, I do believe in daily maintenance, and there are few things as important as good skin.

One of my favorite products is the Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate. This is a lightweight, overnight repair treatment that repairs, replenishes, and regenerates the skin for a smoother, healthier look. I would say it makes your skin feel super soft and cared for, while also making your complexion brighter and more luminous. Basically, it makes you look good.

It’s 99.8% naturally-derived, and paraben-free, which is right in line with how I like my beauty products — as simple (and effective) as possible.

I use this serum as part of a bedtime ritual. Using the dropper, put a few drops on your fingers, and then massage into your skin. Literally takes 30 seconds, and you’re ready for bed.

As I said, this is naturally-derived, and the smells is quite lovely. Evening Primrose and Lavender essential oil give you a burst of natural fragrance, while also helping to sooth irritated skin. After a long day, the scent of the lavender essential oil also acts as a de-stressor.

A little bit goes a long way, so it’s a worthwhile investment. I’ve had the same bottle for over a year, and I still have plenty to use.
