Your night time skincare regime should work it’s magic in the night when your skin works hard to repair, restore and rejuvenate and let you wake up feeling and looking like a million bucks! No matter how tired I am, I won’t forget to take care of my skin before I crash.

I’ve been using two products from the Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery range – Midnight Recovery Concentrate and Midnight Recovery Cream for the past 28 days and this duo has been nothing short of amazing. In particular, I’m loving the Midnight Recovery Concentrate, Kiehl’s much lauded overnight repair elixir, which restores skin overnight. This extraordinary product performs “midnight magic” on your skin while you sleep. It is one of Kiehl’s best selling products and more than 1 million bottles of it has flown off shelves into the homes of women (and men) everywhere!

Read on to find out how you can win yourself one full sized bottle of Midnight Recovery Concentrate worth S$90!

Did you Know?

 The skincare witching hours are between 12am to 4am! During those hours, our skin absorbs active ingredients best. So no excuses to not take some time to go through your skincare regime and give your skin the loving it needs.

Midnight Recover Concentrate

S$90 (30ml)

The Midnight Recovery Concentrate is made up of 99.8% naturally-derived and paraben-free ingredients and contains a potent concentration of botanical abstracts and carefully chosen essential oils. 2 to 3 drops of this is all you need every night for great skin.

What I love about this product most is the relaxing lavender scent from the lavender essential oil in the product. It’s almost an aromatherapy do-it-yourself spa experience. Definitely transforms a tiresome skincare routine into a relaxing pre-bedtime wind down.

One extra cool ingredient this product has is Squalene which is a botanical lipid which is of similar structure to our natural skin lipids. The similarity in structure helps it get absorbed by our skin more easily and restores our skin’s natural moisture balance leaving soft and supple skin.

It amazes me even till today after 28 days of using the Midnight Recovery Concentrate that although it is mostly oil based, it is not greasy at all. Of all the serums I have used, this is one of the fastest absorbed products that smells so good. There’s really nothing I dislike about this.

I pat the concentrate onto my skin before massaging my face in circular motions. For the final touch, I just breathe in deeply and enjoy the aroma.

I wake up in the morning looking like a million bucks with plump beautiful skin ever since I started using it. My skin looks refreshed with wrinkles and lines less obvious first thing in the morning. That said, certain effects of this serum is instant! I get a rosy glow on my cheeks after applying it.

The effectiveness of the concentrate make it well worth it’s hefty price tag and I’ll definitely be repurchasing this when I run out.

Midnight Recovery Cream

S$72 (15ml)

Like the Concentrate, the Cream is also highly raved and has so many accolades. It was awarded the Reader’s Choice Eye Cream (All-in-One) in Her World Malaysia 2012, Best Eye Cream by ACP Beauty Awards Australia 2012 and The Best Eye Care by Taiwan Beauty Magazine 2012.

Once again, the Midnight Recovery Cream has the same lovely lavender scent as the Concentrate. I’d like to clarify that both products are actually fragrance-free. The scent comes from the essential and botanical oils in the product.

The cream contains Butcher’s Broom root extract to promote micro-circulation, reducing puffiness of eye bags.

I applied this sparingly to my eye under eye area and crows feet after using the Concentrate.  This eye cream does not have a heavy texture and absorbs well. In terms of efficacy and effectiveness, I only saw minimal benefit from using it. Perhaps, I have way too many late nights that makes me unable to judge the product fairly.

However, I do see that it plumps up the under eye area and very slightly reduces puffiness and fine lines.

Yay, nay or maybe? I’d give it a maybe! I probably need to sleep earlier and use this for a longer period before I make a final verdict on the product’s effectiveness. 🙂
