My tired, winter stained skin is being put to the test over the next 10 days. Kiehl’s Canada has hooked me up with with two bottles of their Midnight Recovery Concentrate and challenged me to change my skin.

I’m up for it!

The elixir is a water-free concentration of Squalane (a botanical lipid that is similar in molecular structure to natural skin lipids), night-blooming Evening Primrose and essential oils including Lavender (my favourite). It also contains Coriander and Rose Hip Seed Oils, which when combined, provides a complete blend of Omegas (Omega 3, 6 and 9). Omega 3 and 6 Essential Fatty Acids have a restructuring benefit which keeps the skin hydrated.

I didn’t know this but your skin gets busy overnight and especially between midnight and 4:00 a.m. No wonder we look so deprived when we’ve been up all night! Kiehl’s specifically formulated this product to boost the repair and regeneration of skin during this time period.

I would snap a close up o demonstrate the before, but I don’t want to scare you, so you’ll just have to take my word for it when 10 days are up. I’m pregnant so I have really great skin right now (IMHO). For whatever reason pregnancy agrees with my complexion – no oil, no blemishes, but could use more glow and probably some hydration.

If you want to give it a try go pick up a bottle at Kiehl’s ($48.00).

Wish me luck!

  1. Would love to know what you think!
    I am looking for something great to put on my skin at night and have not found anything I’m happy with.

      Hi Kerrie,
      I’ve been meaning to do a follow up to this post. I’m still using the Midnight Recovery every night and I’m loving it. My skin is super soft and smooth despite the long winter we’ve been having. I have noticed that I do have to pair it up with my moisturizer some nights if my skin is feeling dry, but most often I just apply the Midnight Recovery on its own. You should give it a try.

      Margarita – It’s going great. My skin is super soft and I’ve managed to steer clear of dry patches this winter. I definitely recommend it!

  2. How is it going so far? I am very curious….
