However, I finally got my hands on Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate*; which is something I’d been wanting to try in forever. I’d heard so many good things about it and was so happy to finally try it out myself. I’d describe my skin type as combination; I have generally oily skin, but then I suffer with dry patches that have literally bugged me for SO LONG. Especially on my nose and around my mouth/jawline. These are the places I always notice is hardest to get a flawless finish with my makeup. Primers definitely help, and I see a big improvement; but it never solves the problem, and it’s always a battle applying makeup without it being patchy. Hell, basically! I’ll be honest, it’s the one thing I’ve always been paranoid about when meeting other beauty bloggers too, because I’m constantly worried they’re judging my makeup and just think I’m terrible at applying it.
As soon as I started using Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate, I fell in love with the smell. Made with essential oils including Lavender, it really gives an amazing sense of quality as soon as you open the bottle. This elixir (I love that word, makes it feel like magic, which it is!) is used with a pipette, so that you can use just a few drops to cover your whole face; four drops was plenty enough for me.
I’ve been using this every single night (even when I couldn’t be bothered, go me!) before bed, and waking up with the softest skin ever. Like a baby’s bottom, only much, much better. The best bit though? My makeup applies like a dream, because my skin is now evened out! I could cry with joy! No more dry patches, and no more oily build up! It’s amazing, because you’d think with something so moisturising I’d be battling the oil; but those clever skincare gurus are right, when they bang on about oil combatting oil. It seems to have stopped my skin producing too much oil, as I’m nourishing it regularly now; so there’s no need. Brilliant!
I have no problem in saying I can see myself buying and using this product always now. Whatever other products may come and go, Kiehl’s and I are now true BFFs… and just in time for Winter too! Winner.
