I wanted to get this because of the good reviews, but it was quite expensive ($48 CAD). I have been using this alone on my face at night time for the past week and a half. I feel that it has really helped improve my skin: texture and tone. My break outs have cleared up about 85%. There is also less redness on my cheeks. I don't know if this is due to the Midnight Recovery Concentrate, but I have nothing but good things to say about it.
2 to 3 drops of this concentrate feels very comfortable on my skin and my pores look finer and the skin more hydrated by morning. There's also a nice glow to the skin. One of my favorite skincare products.
I think it does make your skin very soft. There is immediate softness. I wish it had more anti-aging type benefits.
I love the smell... Perfect for night time.
I think the price isn't bad, considering you only use several drops each time. But then again, it doesn't stand alone as my "anti-aging serum," so.
I've been afraid that there would be leakage like some other oily bottled products, but this pretty blue bottle has been great.
I think my "buy again?" is a "maybe"-- I'd love to have this in my routine, but it would be a petite luxury product.
My aunt gave me a sample of this that she picked up at Kiehls, and I didn't use it for a few weeks. Only began using it because I opened it one night and it smelled so good I slapped a bit on. Nice. Then the nice scent went away and I forgot about it.
But the next morning my skin felt really soft--and not at all oily. And I realize the stuff had sunk in the night before, without damage to my sheets or making me look like I'd rubbed vaseline on my face. I kept using it every night and my skin just kept looking smoother and somehow more delicate.
Finished the sampler and bought a bottle today. Someone in these reviews compared it to BioOil, which is great but absorbs much, much more slowly. I haven't broken out (though I don't put it on my chin or forehead). My skin just looks pretty great.
We'll see how it does with summer weather, but I love this stuff. Elegant and excellent.
This is so so good!
I have combination skin but prone to patchy areas of dryness. I am really prone to breakouts, especially since my horrible experience with decleors neroli night balm. I had been using the Lancome Genefique serum which is so much more expensive than this and frankly this is much better!
Very hydrating, calms down my skin. My breakouts have really calmed down since starting to use this. I am very pleased with the results. I am not convinced my skins is dramatically better but pleasant to use, hydrating and not breaking me out. Can't ask for much more!!
I recently decided to splurge on a night time skincare treatment. After using a few Midnight Recovery Concentrate samples from Kiehls, I decided to buy the full size version of the product, which was about $48 CAD. Considering you only need 3 or 4 drops of this product, I expect it to last a long time. The samples even last a couple weeks each! The smell is divine (I feel like I'm going to a spa instead of to bed!), and my skin feels smooth and refreshed in the morning. I have combination skin, and I have not broken out- I think my skin tone/acne scars have even improved! I will definitely repurchase!
Was looking forward to trying this as had heard great things about it. It did nothing for my skin - no adverse reactions or anything but it made no difference to my skin whatsoever. Will be passing it onto my sister and will see how she gets on with it.
This is a great product to combat dehydration, but it isn't very moisturizing and so I would recommend using a moisturizer after if you suffer from dry skin. I have combination skin and so it does the job for me. I would seriously only use a couple of drops if you are prone to breakouts....I thought if 2 drops works great then 5 drops will be amazing, but I actually broke out.
The lavendar essential oil also works to relax you for sleep.
So far (2 months) I like this product. My skin was looking somewhat dull and rough - after 1 week my skin has improved. It is super soft and when I wake up it is glowing. Loving it so far.
Hubby also had some funky skin problems around nose and eyebrows (scaling and red) have started him on it and his skin is doing much better,
I love this product! I decided to splurge for a night serum. Literally, after one use I noticed a difference. There are very few products that give such instant results. I noticed that my skin looked so much more hydrated and yes, had a glow to it! I love it! The smell is lovely and the packaging is also really cool. I feel like it has helped with my random zits around my t-zone. I don't seem to be breaking out as much. This is one product I would definitely re-purchase!
