Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate
This is not a brand I usually go for or a product I would usually buy, however, I have found my skin to be quite dry recently and wanted to try something different to a normal moisturizer. I also have a few discoloration marks on my skin and I was recommended this to help reduce their appearance.
I found that the morning after I applied this, my skin was left really moisturized, soft and supple. There was no oily residue left and my face didn't look at all greasy. I think that skin 'radiance' is a hard thing to measure but I did find that my complexion looked much less tired and the texture was brilliant. The best thing about the effects of this product, is that I found it to even out my skin tone in such a short amount of time!
To apply this product, you add 2-3 drops into your hand and press it into your face, without rubbing it in, as it is quite easily absorbed to the skin.
I was slightly worried about using this product as I always thought that oily products would make me break out in spots, however, after using this for a while I haven't had any trouble. As a serum, I don't find it to oily and it is quite lightweight on the skin. The scent is quite a soft lavender which I find to be quite soothing and really lovely to apply before bed.
One of the up-sides of this serum is that it is made from 99.8% naturally derived ingredients including Squalane, Evening Primrose, and a blend of essential oils. Squalane is known to help improve the smoothness of the skin and reduce lines, while Evening Primrose helps to reduce eczema, psoriasis, and acne.
I wouldn'y say that this is a 'must-have' product but I would recommend it if you are looking for an overnight serum to improve the radiance and hydration of your skin and even out your skin tone. At £36 for 30ml it is quite expensive, but it does what it says and is a lovely product.
Does anyone have any other product recommendations for the skin - I love hearing about new things!
