What is the Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate?

Your skin is left looking brighter, healthier, and more youthful. Fine lines are reduced, pigmentation is softened and eventually reduced or removed, and of course - you get that lovely glowing, hydrated skin the next morning.

Unsurprisingly with the results on offer, Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate became a cult-classic overnight. Tasked with tackling a diverse range of skincare concerns and suitable for all skin types, the Midnight Recovery Range is a worthy addition to any serious skincare regimen.

Let's delve a little deeper into the Midnight Recovery range to tell you exactly why it has been such a success story.

How does Kiehl's Midnight Recovery work?

Kiehl's understands the unique way that the skin functions at night, and originally Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate was developed to take full advantage of this.

Throughout the day, your skin focuses on protecting itself from environmental stressors. Just because you can't see the free radicals in the air, doesn't mean they aren't there!

Whereas at night time, the skin goes into repair and regeneration mode, fixing the damage done throughout the day. While you sleep, the skin can make better use of active ingredients to help speed the faster skin cell turnover that occurs at night.

How does the Midnight Recovery Serum improve your beauty sleep?

Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Range taps into these wondrous skincare benefits, indulging skin with active ingredients which can be easily absorbed throughout the night. Whether its restoring vitality, encouraging skin cell repair, or replenishing hydration levels, the Midnight Recovery Range will have maximum effect at night to help reveal a healthier complexion in the morning.

Here's how to use the Midnight Recovery products

Get ready to look like you've had a great night's sleep.

Step 1 - Cleanse (& Prepare The Mind For Sleep)

Having clean skin before bed is so important. More than just to remove the day's build up, it also helps the rest of your skincare do a better job.

As your complexion build up impurities during the day, it’s important to purify your skin to allow for active ingredients to absorb. Enter Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleansing Oil.

Emulsifying to gently melt away makeup, dirt, oil, and other impurities, Kiehls Midnight Recovery Cleansing Oil feels luxurious, and is the perfect first step to your night-time routine.

This cleanser removes everything, but is super gentle!

Ready your mind for sleep, with a gentle infusion of soothing Lavender, Squalane, and Evening Primrose. This lightweight cleanser calms, repairs, hydrates, and nourishes skin to promote a healthy complexion and allow for subsequent Midnight Recovery products to work effectively.

Kiehl’s believe that the delicate eye area always deserves extra special attention to protect, repair, and hydrate the fragile skin. Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Eye 15ml is a restorative overnight eye cream which repairs and hydrates skin to reduce puffiness, dark circles, and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Target tiredness & signs of ageing
