Midnight Recovery Concentrate
Restoring skin’s healthy appearance overnight isn’t going to happen with this product. Although it contains a few helpful ingredients for dry skin, it is far more loaded with irritating fragrant oils. Coriander, lavender, and rosemary are the biggest offenders; all present problems for your skin, including irritation and collagen breakdown. Please…save your skin and your cosmetics budget and ease your dryness with a well-formulated fragrance-free moisturizer coupled with a non-fragrant plant oil such as olive or evening primrose. You’ll get better results without the irritation Midnight Recovery Concentrate is guaranteed to cause.
This lightweight, readily absorbed elixir effectively restores skins healthy appearance overnight, resulting in smoother, more radiant complexion by morning. Enriched with Squalane, a botanical lipid similar in molecular structure to natural skin lipids, Evening Primrose Oil, rich in Omega-6 Fatty Acids and Essential Oils including Lavender, our formula provides a boost of intensive moisture to depleted skin. These natural oils instantly penetrate the skin surface to help replenish it. Our recovery concentrate works at night when skin is most receptive to repairing itself from daily aggressors. With skin hydrated, supple and soft, rest assured you can say goodnight to tired-looking skin.
Kiehls has been around for quite some time, with its origins in a New York City-based pharmacy established in 1851. The brand is perhaps best known for its apothecary-style packaging and its best-selling (and celebrity favorite) Lip Balm #1.
Though the brand claims its products are made with the finest naturally-derived ingredients, most of its formulations include synthetically-produced ingredients as well. Like most skincare companies the line contains both good and not-so-great offerings; Kiehls main misstep is that many of its products contain fragrance ingredients that could irritate skin, particularly sensitive skin.
Note: Kiehl's is categorized as a brand that tests on animals because its products are sold in China. Although Kiehl's does not conduct animal testing for its products sold elsewhere, the Chinese government requires imported cosmetics be tested on animals, so foreign companies retailing there must comply. This requirement is why some brands state that they dont test on animals unless required by law. Animal rights organizations consider cosmetic companies retailed in China to be brands that test on animals, and so does the Beautypedia Research Team.
