There is so much hype about this new serum from Kiehl’s! Ever since its launch way back in February 2010, I’ve seen the wave get bigger and bigger. But I’m going to fuel the hype further by telling you that this is a great product. For me anyway.
The Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate is a night serum designed to help repair your skin as you sleep and deliver hydration and balance your skin with its key ingredients of squalene and evening primrose oil. Let me tell you though what my favourite part of this serum is – lavender oil.
The Midnight Recovery Concentrate is infused with the wonderfully relaxing scent of lavender. I started using this about 2 months ago during a rough time when quality sleep is a priority, and believe me, this helps! I’ll tell you how I use it for maximum benefits below.
But first the packaging. I love the deep blue glass bottle this elixir comes in. I love the dropper but I’m sorry Kiehl’s, your plastic cap does nothing for this product. It actually jars against the beautiful glass bottle for me. Also, I’m not sure if my bottle is faulty, but I find it hard to depress the squeeze top enough to pick up the serum. I dread to think what will happen once the liquid level drops and I can’t get the serum out – what then? Might a rubber squeeze top be better? One wonders.
Fortunately, you only need about 2 drops. But another thing I noticed is that the vacuum isn’t strong enough, so the dropper does not hold the serum properly so it will drip. Not that many people will be holding it out in the open, but I thought I’d mention it because it bugged me 😛
Now, are the directions to be believed? Do you really only need 2 drops of this powerful elixir to wake up to glowing skin?
Yes. Do not be like me and be sceptical and try to use more. 😛
