Kiehl’s Re-Introduced Midnight Recovery Concentrate & Midnight Recovery Eye


Kiehl’s Singapore has recently hosted a cozy private event to re-introduce 2 potent botanical elixirs – Midnight Recovery Concentrate and Midnight Recovery Eye. The dress code of the day was nightwear. :-)

In the day, skin’s function is to protect itself against internal and external aggressors. It is assaulted by stresses from the harsh environment, including air pollution and the harmful UV rays that cause premature aging. At night while you sleep, the skin turns into a rejuvenation and recovery mode. It uses body’s natural sleep cycle to repair, regenerate and replenish what is has lost as a result of daily stresses.


Midnight Recovery Concentrate – S$90 / 30ml

Knowing the importance of healing process at night, Kiehl’s chemists specially formulated Midnight Recovery Concentrate in July 2010 to biologically replicate skin’s natural lipids for optimal skin repair during the night. This elixir, formulated with active botanical and essential oils, is 99% naturally-derived and paraben-free.

The formulation boosts the repair and regeneration of skin when it is naturally programmed to best absorb active ingredients, typically between Midnight to 4am.

Midnight Recovery Concentrate contains Squalane, night-blooming Evening Primrose and Lavender Oil. And it is also enriched with Coriander and Rose Hip Seed Oils that provides a complete blend of Omega 3, 6 and 9. Omega 3 and 6 Essential Fatty Acids have a restructuring benefit which reinforces the cutaneous barrier, therefore keeping the epidermis hydrated.

Midnight Recovery Concentrate has a lightweight transparent texture that has a strong refreshing botanical scent. My skin doesn’t feel greasy upon full absorption. This night serum contains lavender and rosemary fragrant oils that may cause irritation to my skin.


Midnight Recovery Eye – S$72 / 15ml

Following the successful introduction of Midnight Recovery Concentrate, Kiehl’s Since 1851 launched an addition to its range in October 2011 – Midnight Recovery Eye. This eye elixir helps achieve fresher, younger looking eyes by morning by diminishing puffiness and fine lines and wrinkles.

Midnight Recovery Eye is formulated with active ingredient Butcher’s Broom, a root extract, known to increase micro-circulation and reduce swelling of skin due to water retention, which when combined with other tried and true powerhouse oils helps to reduce puffiness and strengthen the blood vessels around the delicate eye area overnight.

The formulation also contains Squalane, Evening Primrose and Lavender that help strengthen the thin skin under the eyes. And Fatty acids (Omega 3, 6 and 9) to help reinforce the protective barrier and slow the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Midnight Recovery Eye is FREE of paraben, artificial fragrance and mineral oil.

Midnight Recovery Eye, an eye moisturizer, has a light emollient texture that is easily absorbed into the skin. I’m not very comfortable to see Alcohol Denat appearing rather high on the ingredient list.


By the way during the event, I was being introduced to this Kiehl’s Calendula Herbal-Extract Toner. Interestingly, it is made with real Marigold whole flowers and still to this day, hand-picked and placed in each bottle by hand. It is highly recommended by Taiwanese celebrity 大S. It is one of her fave products.
