I was introduced to Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate last December when I was in Kiehl's to purchase Christmas gifts. The SA at Kiehl's Robson in Vancouver was kind enough to give me two 10-day supply samples of the Midnight Recovery Concentrate with my purchase. I was a little skeptical about a serum that promised to give you soft glowing skin overnight. Needless to say, it really does give you the soft, clear, glowing skin the next morning. The product has a pleasant and not overpowering scent of lavender and it is a little oily going on the skin. You have to be a bit patient as it does not absorb into the skin right away. It takes about about 10-15 minutes to get into your pores and does its thing so I would not recommend going straight to bed after applying it as it could get onto your pillow. I don't know the exact science behind how it works. All I can say is every morning I wake up to supple skin and my moisturizer and skincare absorb better. There is no visible pores so when I do wear foundation, I don't even need to wear a primer anymore. And a big plus for me is it helps control oil secretion on my nose. I no longer have to blot every 3-4 hours. :)
PS. I also recently received a sample of the Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Eye which I will try after I finish my current eye cream which is the Laura Mercier Flawless Skin Anti-Aging Eye Creme (similar product here) which I blogged about here. I will report on the complementary eye cream after I give it a try.
PPS. I will be doing a spring clean of my beauty drawers and will have a blog beauty giveaway on March 31 so stay tuned.
