Hello Beautiful

My name is Tammy and I've been blogging for over 8 years now. I started blogging because I wanted to share my beauty hauls and lifestyle experiences. I'm also a pro-consumer, which is probably the fire in my life.

This blog is now happily written by the cutest couple you've ever seen. Gareth's Irish while I'm Malaysian. We met in the most unexpected way possible and since then have been in a loving relationship. He loves to eat, drink and try new exciting things (even extreme sports) while I love the quieter things in life, like spas, massages, shopping and beauty! But we have something in common, we both love travelling.

Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate Review

9.20.2010

Youth Elixir to the rescue!

Finally got the time to write about my experience using the Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate which was launched in June 2010. Of course knowing Kiehl's they always come up with cool ideas when introducing their new products/collections. Naturally when Midnight Recovery Concentrate came out, Kiehl's came up with a bedroom themed party at Kiehl's Isetan, KLCC (I blogged about it here).

Renew Skin Overnight with Midnight Recovery

works at night to restore our skin by morning

There's a lot of reviews online regarding this elixir that restore's skins youthful appearance. It's a highly concentrate elixir of pure essential oils and distilled botanicals, 99.8% naturally derived and paraben free that works all night while you sleep to regenerate, repair and replenish the skin barrier for younger-looking skin by morning. Thanks to a rich blend of naturally replenishing botanicals like Evening Primrose, Squalene, Lavender and a blend of essential oils known for their therapeutic, balancing and antioxidant effects. Paraben free, Mineral Oil free and Fragrance free.

key ingredients in the exlixir
 
Evening primrose is a flowering plant originally native to North America that now grows throughout much of Europe and parts of Asia. It blooms every other year and its large, fragrant yellow flowers open at dusk and remain open through the night. Rich in omega-6 and essential fatty acids that the body cannot naturally produce. Also effective on skin-barrier repair.
Lavender helps soothe inflamed or irritated skin while helping reduce skin blotchiness for a more even look. Creates a brighter and more radiant look to skin.

SKWA-lane (Squalene) a highly refined moisturizing oil derived from the olive; Squalane is very silky and easily absorbed and has been found to be extremely compatible with the natural oils of the skin; we use Squalane in many of our formulations.

the cap acts as a dropper

I heard people saying the bottle is plain and boring. Well there's a reason for that. At one of my aromatherapy workshops, I learned that essential oils are best kept in dark glass bottles to preserve their effectiveness. I like the packaging actually, after all essential oils are quite expensive in the market. The cap acts as a dropper and with just 2-3 drops (I used two which is more than enough) on cleansed skin, gently pressed to cheeks, forehead and chin to evenly distribute the application before gently massaging it into the skin. I have the option to use moisturiser if my skin is too dry but the oil is sufficient enough to be worn alone for me. For those with oily skin, I don't think it would be suitable since it's oil based skincare.

apply before sleeping for a well rested night

The texture is lightweight, transparent and oily.It absorbs well into my skin after I massage it. The scent is calming and I am well rested thanks to the aromatherapy effects of the Lavender in it. Enriched with Squalene (from Olive) a botanical lipid similar to our natural skin lipids, Evening Primerose Oil, rich in Omega-6 Fatty Acids and Essential oils, this formula provides intensive moisture repair at night when skin is most receptive to repairing itself from daily aggressors. Since I have sensitive skin, I find that the formula is soothing to my skin but I did not see any brightening or glow effects in the morning.

it works at night to replenish, restore skin

My results are not significant as compare to others who used this product. They were amazed at their skin being brighter, younger and better after using it. As I have been taking care of my skin for some time, I see not much changes in appearance except that it does moisturised my skin which is softer and supple in the morning. Initially I used it every night for 3 weeks then slowed down to alternating days, sufficient for me. I believe we can control and customized how much products are needed for our skin (catering to our skincare needs). This bottle is priced at RM200 for 30ml bottle of pure essential oils (which in the market would come close to this price!) and I believe just by using 2 drops a night, this one bottle can last us 6-8 months. Even the 2ml sample lasted a week for me! Suitable for dry-combination skin and maturing/dehydrated skin would find the results to be fascinating.

midnight recovery givewaway!

It's also been some time since I did a giveaway, so here comes one now. Since I am reviewing the Midnight Recovery Concentrate, I would also like to give the chance to readers to review it too by giving away a mini gift pack filled with Kiehl's products inclusive of a 2ml Midnight Recovery Concentrate (a week's supply) for the best two readers who can tell me why they want to try this elixir.

  27. My spouse, who pays half individuals monthly expenses, has fallen ill with X and will no more work because with
    the hospital treatment payday loans Online all online cash loan companies

    Money Loans in the event you're working together with your self, you could not have the ability to secure a pay day loan.

  29. However, simply because somebody continues to be refused by one company won't mean they automatically obtain a refusal from another online payday advances although payday cash advances are a great way to get payday, a favorable credit record or a bad credit score, do not get in to the habit of taking them on a regular basis because the interest rates are high.
