Several ladies have been asking, what my beauty regime is like? What products I use for my face and skin. What is the secret behind my healthy glow, etc? I have to admit I don't use a lot of products when it comes to make up or my beauty regime. I'd like to think I've been blessed with good skin (don't get me wrong, I could go on about all the problem areas).
I am quite lazy when it comes to a stringent skin/beauty regime at night. I cleanse my skin and apply a night moisturizing cream and thats about it. Pretty lame, I know but it has been working for me so far. The one thing I religiously try and do is remove any makeup I have. I have a combination skin type, where my forehead, chin and the tip of my nose tends to get oily (not too much). However the rest of my face is dry.
Ever since I turned 30, I decided to start looking after my skin a little bit more. I haven't been very successful in that, however the process is still on. A friend of mine suggested the Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate and I'm in LOVE.
This lightweight serum is an oil blend which acts or does the part of a night moisturizing cream. It is an overnight elixir that restores the skins moisture and gives it a youthful glow in the morning. It is a combination of pure botanical oils like the coriander seed, lavender and evening primrose oil which also makes it smell heavenly and fresh. I was a bit skeptical in the beginning about an oil blend on my face? I hate my skin to feel slimy or oily. However this Concentrate doesn’t give you that thick sticky feeling. It is quite light and blends into your skin after about 5 minutes of application.
It works overnight along with your skins natural nocturnal recovery to replenish the radiance and leave the skin feeling smooth and fresh. It comes with a dropper to avoid any wastage of the product. Even though the instructions say 2-3 drops, I apply about 2 drops of oil (which I find is more than enough for me) after cleansing my skin. I put the drops on my hands and pat my fingertips gently onto my cheeks, forehead and skin to evenly distribute it. Lastly I lightly massage my face for about 30 seconds and behold I'm done with my quick and easy night beauty routine.
I cannot recommend this product enough. You can purchase it online from Nordstorm by clicking on the following link : Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Cream. It retails at RO 29 for a 1.7 oz bottle which will easily last you a couple of months (Atleast it has for me). If you have anyone coming from the Duty Free at the airport, you could buy it even slightly cheaper.
Its a lush product which makes you feel divine. It not only acts as a moizturizer but also works like an aromatherapy soother. I love applying this light oil blend just before I go to bed as the essential oils leaves us smelling divine.
Everyone has different skin types and I would highly suggest getting a sample from any of the stores before you decide whether it's for you or not. For my skin type its worth every penny spent. If you are like me and don't like to spend much time looking after your skin or rather don't have the time to spend on a beauty regime, I couldn't recommend this product more.
