When I started blogging I wrote about the usual stuff – product reviews etc etc.
I definitely fell away from that for the last two years, and focused on writing more about self-love, self-improvement and reflection.
I still love makeup, beauty and skincare. To take the time out of your day to take care of your body and make you feel your best self – is practising self-love and self-improvement. By no means am I telling you to go and buy the product I’m about to discuss. Just lettin’ you know what I’ve been loving as of late.
Having heard about this brand for a long time in the blogging community, I was always intrigued. I walked into Kiehls’ shop in Dublin at Christmas and instantly fell in love with the scientific / apothecary vibes.
Then I walked out and didn’t buy anything because the price freaked me out and I didn’t think it was worth it.
Fast forward 2 months – on a recent trip to Paris I came across Kiehls in the duty free section of Charles de Gaulle airport. Hellz yeah. So I treated myself and bought the product I’ve been dying to try since I first heard about it.
Kiehls Midnight Recovery Concentrate
I mean, that packaging tho. So aesthetically pleasing, beautiful deep purple tones, and gold filigree-like lettering. Gorge. Looks like something a high-class witch would put on her face. The dropper is also way too pleasing and beautifully well made. For 30ml, the price is €44.
I’ve been going through a change in my skin recently, and I felt that no matter what amount of natural oils I was using, nothing was penetrating deep into my skin.
The Midnight Recovery Concentrate from Kiehls is a paraben-free, mineral-oil-free night-time oil. Its main ingredients are evening primrose oil, lavender oil and squalane (wtf is that lol). But it’s a blend of botanical and essential oils which basically rejuvenate your skin overnight. It repairs your skin and replenishes elasticity. All the ingredients are natural or derived from naturally occurring substances.
You wash your face with whatever, and then pat 2-3 drops of this good stuff onto your face – then massage it in. Although it’s made of good quality oils – it doesn’t feel heavy or oily, and actually satisfyingly sinks into your skin.
Literally – I woke up like this.
I’ve been using this for just over a month and have noticed a huge change in the texture and hydration of my skin.
Basic blogger product reviews aside – this shit is real good. Makes me feel fresh and nourished. And I’ll be selling my soul in the future to buy it again.
Love and Light,
