The Best Skin Care from Kiehl’s
If you are a frequent reader of my blog, you already know that when it comes to skin care how much I love the natural and organic skincare products and of course the Holy grail of Skin Care – Essential oils. You can read about my skincare routine here and here
Last week I was visiting my family in Mumbai when I came across this brand Kiehl’s. What attracted me most to it was that the products were powered by natural botanicals. Based in New York City, Kiehl’s Since 1851, Inc. is a natural hair and skin care products subsidiary of French cosmetics giant L’Oréal. Kiehl’s has been built up by three generations of the Morse family and is quite an old-school skin brand. Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Eye was a 2013 Allure Best of Beauty Award winner, and even Kylie Jenner counts on Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleansing Oil for hydrated skin in the winter.
The product I bought is Kiehl’s bestselling Midnight Recovery Concentrate.
What is it?
This top-rated face serum is formulated with ingredients like Lavender Essential Oil and Evening Primrose Oil to replenish skin by morning.
- Restores overnight to help skin repair itself from daily aggressors
- Improves firmness and elasticity for replenished, radiant skin
- Formulated with a blend of essential oils and distilled botanicals including Lavender Essential Oil, Evening Primrose Oil, and Squalane
Evening Primrose Oil is extracted from the ripe seeds of the Evening Primrose, a flowering plant that blooms every other year. This oil contains essential fatty acids that the body cannot produce on its own that help to repair the skin barrier while maintaining hydration and elasticity.
Lavender Essential Oil helps soothe inflamed or irritated skin while helping reduce blotchy skin for a more even tone. This calming oil helps to create brighter, healthier-looking skin.
A signature Kiehl’s ingredient, Squalane is a botanical lipid that is similar in molecular structure to natural skin lipids. Squalane has an exceptional affinity for skin and absorbs easily to help restore skin’s moisture balance and to keep it soft and supple.
The midnight recovery concentrate comes in a blue glass bottle and 30 ml of it costs Rupees 3950 only.
What I feel
I have been using this product only for a week and it’s too less a time to vouch for everything it claims. But, what I really love about the product is that its Paraben free and the formula is made up of ‘99.8% of naturally derived ingredients. What I can vouch for is the hydrating power of the concentrate, It’s a clear liquid that comes in a glass bottle with a pump. It gets absorbed really quickly and has a very mild scent. I haven’t had any breakout issue with it. Another positive is that a little goes a long way – just three drops a night is all I need. Some nights even if I haven’t had the soundest sleep, it seems my skin had a better rest. I have been waking up to fresh and soft skin for a week now and the patchy and dry areas of my skin feel hydrated.
The concentrate is very lightweight and packs a whole lot of punch with all the essential oils. For the coming summer months, it is the perfect solution to keep the skin hydrated without being weighed down. So go ahead and try it.
In Delhi, you can buy Kiehl’s products at Khan Market, Shop No 48b, Ground floor.
