I was recently introduced to two of Kiehl's best-selling products, and will be sharing with you the product details, before I post my review of both the products at a later date.
Midnight Recovery Concentrate
S$90 for 30ml
Since 1851 to Today: Kiehl’s is one of the first facial skincare companies to launch a 99.8% naturally-derived, paraben-free, water-free powerhouse concentrate of active botanicals and essential oils. Midnight Recovery Concentrate is specifically formulated to reinforce the skin during peak recovery – which occurs throughout the night between the hours of 12-4a.m.
A complex blend of naturally replenishing botanical oils including moisturizing Squalane and Evening Primrose (rich in Omega-3 fatty acids), and a blend of essential oils known for their therapeutic, balancing and antioxidant effects, work with the skin's natural nocturnal activity to instantly penetrate deep down and dramatically restore skin overnight.
Midnight Recovery Eye
S$75 for 15ml
ONE NIGHT. TWO DROPS. YOUNGER LOOKING EYES BY MORNING.
Following the successful introduction of Midnight Recovery Concentrate, the 99.8% naturally derived botanical elixir that today is a leading customer favorite due to its ability to restore skin overnight, Kiehl’s Since 1851 launches its ideal companion:
Midnight Recovery Eye to help achieve fresher, younger looking eyes by morning by diminishing puffiness and fine lines and wrinkles.
Kiehl’s chemists formulated Midnight Recovery Eye – paraben-free, fragrance-free, and mineral oil-free – with the active ingredient Butcher’s Broom, a root extract, known to increase microcirculation, which when combined with other tried and true powerhouse oils helps to reduce puffiness and strengthen the delicate eye area overnight.
Butcher’s Broom (Ruscus aculeatus), used for centuries by old-world pharmacists, is high in bioflavonoids, and is said to improve cutaneous microcirculation and reduce inflammation. It has been traditionally used to combat edema – a swelling of skin due to water retention caused by weak blood circulation - by strengthening blood vessels. Midnight Recovery Eye utilizes these properties of Butcher’s Broom to soothe and calm under eye skin to reduce morning puffiness.
Did you know? Butcher’s Broom is native to the Mediterranean areas of Europe and Africa. It grows in areas of high altitude, in fields, forests, shrubberies and mountains. The fruit of the plant is a red berry.
Other active essential and botanical oils in the Midnight Recovery Eye formula, Squalane, Evening Primrose and Lavender, help to strengthen the thin skin under the eyes, which is only 1/3 as thick as other facial skin. This under-eye area has the fewest sebaceous glands on the face, and is therefore highly susceptible to dehydration, resulting in a weak barrier, a factor in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The unique blend of oils – made up of Fatty acids (Omega 3, 6 and 9) – has a restructuring benefit which also helps to reinforce the protective barrier and slow the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Due to the unique vulnerability of the under-eye area, puffiness affects all age groups, and is one of the leading skin concerns of women. This issue, in addition to fine lines and wrinkles, appears in the eye area first, as early as age 30. Prevention is valuable, and according to leading dermatologists, proper skincare at night is highly effective.
