Review of Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate | Best Night-time Serum

Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate is so good that I even bought a bottle for my mom. And she loves it too. Here are 4 reasons why I love this facial oil so much.

What’s Good about Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate?

1. Lovely Scent

This is a feel-good product similar to the Midnight Recovery Eye

Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate has a really pleasant aroma of botanical oils. You’ll feel totally relaxed like how you would when you are enjoying a soothing aromatherapy massage.

I just took a sniff of this concentrate, and my immediate physical response was:

  • full inhalation
  • eyes closed
  • head slightly arched backwards
  • shoulders slightly raised

I was in a state of enjoyment, and appreciating the lovely scent.  

Did you know that essential oils can help enhance psychological and physical well-being? If you are having some problem sleeping, the lavender oil in this concentrate will help you sleep better.

2. Oil but NOT Oily

If you are thinking that people with oily or combination skin should avoid this, you’ll be delighted to know that this is not the case. I have combination skin and am prone to pimples, but Midnight Recovery Concentrate does not break me out.

The 2-3 drops of essential oil which you’ll apply to your face nightly, has the right balance such that it’s hydrating and yet not too rich for your skin. I’m using it. My mom is using it. Despite the age difference, both of us are enjoying this fabulous concentrate.

Here’s the concentrate on my hand. As you can see, it’s not dense and the oil quickly slid down my hand.

3. Softer and Rejuvenated Skin

My face immediately felt softer and plumped up after application. This is the type of product you would want to use especially if your skin needs a little bit of moisture boost. I always made sure I bring this along when I’m travelling (to cold and dry countries), and this is my go-to serum right after a chemical peel.

4. The bottle lasts a long long time

I’m still on my first bottle, even though I’ve had it for more than a year. Admittedly, I do have a good collection of moisturizers which I’ll swap around depending on my skin condition. However, Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate is the one among the lot that I’ve been using most regularly at night.

No wonder this is customers’ all-time favorites. It is mine too, and it may be yours. Rating: 5/5
