Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate Review

4 comments

Ever since I turned 25, my skin has been a lot drier than before and I noticed that it needs extra hydration that I've never used before. Standard skin screams for dry skin are usually not that good for me, as they tend to be too rich and oily. I've been using Lancome's Vissionnaire Nuit night cream for a while now, and Afrodita's Hydra Thermal as a day cream (highly recommend them both). But still, even with them, my skin sometimes needs extra care, especially since it's been going through a lot of stressful events lately and it needs deep recovery, especially overnight. Kiehl's Midnight Concentrate has been perfect for that, it's much different than standard skin oils, as it is a lot more gentle, it soaks in nicely and doesn't leave a greasy trail behind. It's recommend for night usage, and it can be applied over or below your night cream (or as a single product). The benefits I've noticed are great. My skin doesn't look grayish in the morning and it appears a lot more rested, refreshed. Also, all of my dry patches disappear whenever I use this serum.

The scent of this products is beautiful, and that's no wonder since the concentrate uses lavender and primrose oils as a base. It's soothing, calming and has that lovely aromatherapy effect on my (usually) tired skin. In my experience, it's best to use it after a hot shower, because that's when the pores are opened and the serum's effect is greater. 

Otkako sam navršila 25. godinu, koža mi je znatno suša nego prije i potrebna joj je dodatna njega kakvu prije nikada nisam koristila. Standardne kreme za suhu kožu mi najčešće ne odgovaraju jer znaju biti premasne i preteške, stoga već neko vrijeme za noć koristim Lancome Vissionnaire Nuit noćnu kremu, te Afroditinu Hydra Thermal dnevnu kremu (svakako preporučam). Uz njih, ponekad ipak trebam i dodatnu pomoć svojoj koži koja proživljava dosta stresno razdoblje uz moje svakodnevne obaveze na poslu te posebno sada u ovo hladnije doba godine kada nastupa i prirodna isušenost. Kiehl's Midnight Recovery serum pokazao se kao hvalevrijedan proizvod kojeg bi preporučila i onima koji ulja koriste s oprezom. Naime, za razliku od klasičnih ulja, ovaj pripravak se ponaša kao serum, lagan je na koži, brzo se upija i ostavlja kožu nahranjenom. Posebno ga je dobro koristiti prije spavanja, primjećujem da mi uvijek s lica makne sivilo i umorni izgled kože. 

Miris ovog proizvoda je nešto stvarno divno, nježno, ali opojno, savršeno za aromaterapiju koju si ponekad trebamo priuštiti. Najviše ga volim nanositi na čistu kožu, nakon tuširanja, pri čemu su pore otvorene i proizvod se bolje upija. Koža mi je od ovog seruma ujutro mekana i nahranjena, a nakon dužeg korištenja primijetila sam i da je više 'elastična' odnosno vratio joj se nekadašnji izgled. Ovaj popularni proizvod opravdao je sva moja očekivanja, a i više od toga te mislim da je neizostavan dio beauty rutine u kojeg se isplati uložiti (cijena mu je 300 kuna, no zaista dugo dugo traje). Čak i ako inače ne koristite ulja, možda bi vam se ova vrsta koncentriranog seruma mogla svidjeti s obzirom da je nenametljiv, a opet dovoljno efektan na koži. 



Something about the brand itself:

Kiehl's is an American cosmetics brand retailer that specializes in premium skin, hair, and body care products. It started as a single pharmacy in Manhattan at Third Avenue and East 13th Street in 1851. Kiehl's was purchased by the L'Oréal Group in 2000 and currently has more than 250 retail stores worldwide, and over 1,000 points of sale supplemented by sales in high-end department stores, select airport locations, as well as independent stockists. In contrast to its market competitors, Kiehl's is distinguished for its unorthodox marketing approach, exceptionally large male clientele base, and its products' simple and straightforward packaging.



Za kraj, nešto o samom brendu Kiehl's:

Kiehl’sovo klasično nasljeđe i posvećenost kupcu u srži su svakog proizvoda i usluge u 165. godine dugoj povijesti tvrtke – od istraživanja sastojaka i testiranja sigurnosti formula, do unutarnjeg uređenja lokalnih dućana, sve je podređeno individualnim potrebama kupaca u lokalnim zajednicama. U svim Kiehl’s prodavaonicama načela klasične ljekarne protkana su modernim elementima koji odražavaju posebnosti zajednice i odaju počast počecima tvrtke u njujorškoj četvrti East Village. Već samim ulaskom u jedinstveni prostor posjetitelji bivaju uvučeni u dugu povijest i ekscentričan karakter tvrtke: posvuda se mogu vidjeti tragovi duge tradicije branda, uključujući fotografije originalne lokacije glavne trgovine u New Yorku, obitelji osnivača i ekspedicija pod Kiehl’sovim sponzorstvom. Nezaobilazan dio trgovina je i tzv. Mr. Bones – popularni kostur, jedan od simbola ovog brenda.

    1. Ako ti cijena nije problem - uzmi. :) Bolji proizvod za lice nisam imala (osim Visionnaire Nuit noćne kreme od Lancomea i Vichy Aqualie Thermal).
