A Kiehls Night In

The small things in life make me happy. Like puppies, duvet days, food and taking my make up off. There's nothing quite like the feeling of smushing (scientific word) in some facial oil and heavy duty eye cream on my face after a long ass day. Kiehl's have made even more indulgent with these fellas.

Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate- This stuff is packed to the brim with essential oils, making for a seriously relaxing evening routine. Massage this in on freshly cleansed skin before you go to bed and let this lightweight oil do the work. My skin looks brighter, replenished and feels that bit plumper by morning. The soft scent of lavender really gets me in the mood for sleeping too. It isn't sticky and sinks straight in, ideal for the oiler complexion. I've found this does help ease any spots I have brewing too. On drier skin days, slather on a moisturiser afterwards for extra glow points. It's definitely a cheaper alternative for the likes of Estee Lauder's Advanced Night Repair and a little lighter than that formula too.

Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado- Not great with nachos but works wonders on the eyes. I use this AM and PM. It has a very thick consistency which you need to warm up between your fingers to avoid any drag. It is a lot easier to apply than what it looks and feels so comforting on dry, tired eyes. This is incredible for anyone who uses thicker foundation or concealer under their eye and stops any product from settling in to those little lines. Whilst I wouldn't say this is anti-aging, it's ideal for those who just need a little more hydration under the eye. I adore Avocados and they have so many fantastic benefits without eating them too. The creamy Eye Treatment contains Avocado Oil which is why it packs such a punch in the hydration department too. It's a brilliant, no frills eye cream for people who just want the job done.

(Someone throw me other adjectives for hydrating. I need a lie down)


  1. I am Kiehls obsessed! Creme de corps is the ultimate long day saviour alongside as their lip balm. I neeeeed to try this eye cream too :)

    1. I've never tried the Creme de Corps but I think I need it in my life! The eye cream is superb, I do love Kiehls, definitely a brand worth the hype! xx

  2. LOL #bblogger problem right there-trying to find 10 different words for the same concept! Really enjoyed this post-I just picked up the eye cream. I have had the midnight concentrate in the past but I think (and my skin) prefer the Clarins oils over this one

    1. I think I need to invest in a thesaurus! The Eye Cream is so gorgeous, I do love Clarins oils and I think they're definitely superior in the winter but my skin seems to like how lightweight this Kiehls one is! xx
