Bath has recently had a new Kiehl’s store open and I remember telling Ian in passing that I was dying to get my hands on a bottle of their Midnight Recovery Concentrate, a cult beauty serum which has won rave reviews. So imagine my delight when he popped home recently with a huge Kiehl’s box…serious husband points earnt!
First of all, I have to say how amazing the packaging and freebies were. For one little bottle, I managed to get a Grapefruit Body Cleanser (a shower gel) and three mini samples of Kiehl’s Ultimate Stength Hand Salve, Ultra Facial Cream and Midnight Recovery Eye cream.
Priced at £35, the Midnight Recovery Concentrate is in the ‘treat’ category for me but you need such a tiny amount that I can see this lasting ages.
There is a very herbal-botanical smell to the oil but it doesn’t linger too long on the skin. There is lavender in the formula, which I usually hate, but it isn’t too overpowering and I know some people find that this scent helps them relax and fall to sleep easier in the evening.
Finally, I have to express my love for the pipette pump lid. It ensures you only get the few drops you need and it makes me feel like a scientist when I use it!
I’ve only just started using this serum so cannot attest to its benefits as part of a daily beauty routine but it definitely feels like a treat for the skin overnight and I think it will come into its own over the next few months as the cooler weather and harsh central heating gives my skin a battering!
Have you got any more recommendations from Keihl’s? x
