Midnight in a Bottle | Beauty Heroes 2017

On the fifth day of Christmas my true love sent to me this little number called… Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate.

I am starting on a strong note with my 2017 beauty skin care favourites. After reading and hearing numerous reviews from bloggers and vloggers that I trust I did nothing else but send my fiancĂ©, now husband, to buy me a bottle from duty free. However, he did not have as much trust in bloggers and vloggers as me, especially considering the product’s price, so he returned with three samples he had received from a Kiehl’s shop assistant at Heathrow Airport.

I always wonder how is it that when I ask for a beauty samples they never have any, but when I send my husband he always manages to return with multiple samples of the products I asked for, and additional ones. Where is the fairness?

Anyway, I used the three samples every night, which lasted for almost a month and a half and I was sold. I knew that I wanted a full bottle!
Everything you need to know about Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate

I use it at night after having a shower as the concentrate treats my skin over the night whilst I’m sleeping. At this point I have to mention how rapidly this overnight sensation is absorbed. A little medicine dropper helps me to control the amount of product I use, which is usually two drops as Kiehl’s promises. Bye bye oily, greasy face and dirty pillow. This is my pet peeve; any oily product is just not for me.

For me the smell of Lavender Oil and Evening Primrose Oil is very calming and non-intrusive, which is what I need before going to bed. I would not want a strong and chemical fragrance on my face just as I am about to sleep.

I know some reviews have said that they see effects after the first use. My sensitive, dry, and oily T-zone area skin is not as easily pleased. Not really a surprise looking at the mix of needs that my skin has.
After the first use my skin was definitely softer. However, it took around a week for the magic to kick in and to lift up the dullness and restore the appearance of my skin by the morning. My skin started to be and still is softer, radiant, nourished, and revitalised even after over a year of use.

An extra bonus for someone who is a strongly visual person is the luxurious packaging. I like products to be in glass containers and this one is especially nice due to its deep blue colour, which also happened to be one of my favourites. It reminds me of the glass containers my grandmother had on her wooden dressing table with three-way large mirrors.  

Summing up: I am in love and so is my skin!

In case you wonder: All of the products from my Favourites 2017 series were bought by myself and are not part of any collaboration/PR package etc. Basically no one paid me to say they are awesome and any brands mentioned here do not know they are mentioned here until the recommendation goes live.
