    Really nice

    I have given this product a lot of time to fully observe its effects on the skin and I have been using it for 3 months now. and my bottle is still half full so it’s safe to say that it goes a long way.

    The smell of the serum is divine, rich in lavender it’s really soothing and perfect for a night serum to relax before going to bed.

    The serum is light on the skin, it’s not greasy and gets absorbed easily into the skin. it nourishes and helps the skin get plumper and have a more relaxed look over time. A lot of people noticed that my skin looks rested, and I haven’t been using many other products. so it’s really the serum effect.

    However I have a combination skin and experience the occasional zit especially around my period and I have noticed that the period pimples are a bit more after using this serum, so i started avoiding it a little around my period time or use a smaller quantity.
    I’ve used 4 drops on my face most of the time and sticked to 2 or 3 around my period.

    I would definitely buy this product again and I would also like to try the sativa cannabis infused serum to experience Kiehl’s range of face serums because it’s really good.

    As soon as I started using this product, I ended up with pimples on my face. I gave it a second chance, yet got the same results. Bloggers gave it so much undeserved hype.

    “First of all Kiehls is the top brand for skincare . This is one of they beautiful products , it’s gives glowy and smooth affect for your skin , even my skin is oily , it’s works with me but you have to take care about the using, for example I using this before i sleep only , I don’t prefer to use it in the morning if your skin is oily as me , because maybe it’s makes your skin more oily during the day , Love it love it love it”

    “I really liked this product. The smell is strong at the beginning but you’ll get used to it. When I first applied the drops on my face, I had a feeling that I was applying pure oil. Once spreading it and massaging my skin, the feeling was very nice as I had a very soft skin. However, it’s been two month and the results are not that showing. I am willing to give it two more weeks.”

    “This serum is very soothing; as soon as it was applied on my face, my skin felt relaxed and well hydrated. It was great to use it after a long and tiring day. However, didn’t notice any other benefit to the skin, it might need some more time to show.”

    I love Kiehl’s as a brand in general. they always use natural products and essential oils. This midnight recovery concentrate has a nice lavender smell that soothes you instantly. Only 2 to 3 drops are enough or else u’ll have extra product on your face. Results are slow to show but my face is definitely softer and has a nice glow

    This product helped my skin become smoother but I only noticed the difference after several application . The packaging is nice and it has a good smell although it’s a bit strong . Be careful to only apply 2 or 3 drops otherwise your skin will be too oily . It’s a good product but you still need to moisturize your skin with a moisturizer .

    “First off, a little goes a long way. A couple drops is sufficient. An oily and moisturizing texture when you apply it .I was actually worried about how oily my face would be in the morning. Surprisingly it was not oily at all! My skin got soft and not one bit shiny.”

    “Ingredients and great reviews made it very tempting for me to buy, but wasn’t much as promising (at least for me). Kiehl’s is a very good brand! in which I personally prefer other products that they have.”

OUR EDITORIAL REVIEW

Packaging:

This serum comes in a royal blue glass bottle with the name of the brand and details about the product written in gold. The bottle dispenses the serum through a dropper to pump the oil and squeeze it out. It is better to make sure of the quantity of serum needed before each application as you will only need a few drops.

Type of skin:

This serum can be used for all skin types as mentioned by Kiehl’s.

Smell:

The smell of the serum is strong with a lavender scent. Some people appreciate it before going to sleep as the product is part of a night time routine and may find the lavender scent relaxing. Others might find the smell too overwhelming.

Formula:

The Midnight Recovery Concentrate is composed of natural origin ingredients of which mainly the lavender and the evening primrose oil.

Effect:

We tried this serum for a period of a full month and we noticed that it had different results depending on the skin type:

  • it does not work well on oily complexions:  the skin is not able to completely absorb the oil rich formula which creates a thick layer that can congest pores and cause break outs. The serum can also have a negative effect on acne prone skin so better be careful when using this product. We recommend that you try it ahead for a week to make sure that it suits your skin
  • for combination skin types, we recommend to use the Midnight Recovery serum on the dry areas of the face only and avoid the T-Zone (nose, chin and forehead)
  • for dry and normal skin types this serum does a great job moisturizing and improving skin texture. After trying it for a month period we noticed that the skin looked more radiant and that the fatigue signs had been significantly reduced. However we felt that the serum does not replace a hydrating cream and should rather be used as a complementary skin care.
  • if you’re looking for an anti-aging product, this serum helps reducing fine lines and lightly marked wrinkles however its effect is rather visible on the longer term and you will not be able to notice a major change before several months of use
  • for sensitive skin, we recommend to test it first for a short period ahead of adopting it in your skin care regimen. This will ensure it does not create irritations or pimples. You can resume using it if you don’t notice any side effects on your skin.

Application:

Apply 3 drops of this serum on a cleansed skin (forehead and cheeks) as part of your night time skin care routine. Gently massage the product into your skin. You can wear it alone or under your usual night moisturizer.

Price:

This serum can be found in 3 different sizes and prices in Lebanon:

  • the 15ml bottles retails at 48 USD
  • the 30ml bottle retails at 72 USD
  • the 50ml bottle retails at 106 USD

The serum’s price is very much comparable to that of other serums of the same size from brands such as Estee Lauder, Filorga and Caudalie. Since you will only need around 3 drops per day, this product can really go a long way.
