I am 73 and my left eye has has several surgeries and sags and very little collegen left, will this product will this product do any tightening???
Gin H on Jan 10, 2013
Since I began using Midnight Recovery Eye cream, the puffiness around my eyes has actually gotten more pronounced. Has anyone else had this reaction? Any suggestions on why this might be happening? I love the way it feels, but my husband - who is not the hypercritical sort at all - started to comment ("I say this with love, you still look beautiful to me, BUT I can't help notice...") on my eyes looking puffy within a few days of my using the cream.
nicole on May 25, 2013
Best Answer: Kiehl's always advises to check for an allergic reaction; I would say that you may be reacting to the ingredients which include some natural essential oils and plant essences. The simplest solution may be to stop using the product for a week and see if there is an improvement. The avocado eye cream is very gentle and you might want to try that in its place if you are eventually ready to try a different under-eye cream. Your attentive hubby should get extra points for his attention to detail! Hope things work out.

Pamela G on Jun 20, 2013

A shopper on Nov 12, 2013
Best Answer: No, Midnight Recovery is all you need. It's an o.k. product, but I have found others that are more effective for me. Of course, everyone has different skin, and expects different results. Good Luck!!

Are the effects of this cream long term? Do the results of de puffed eyes and lightened under eyes stay with you after a while or so you have to keep repurchasing and using constantly to maintain those results?
Greta W on Jul 7, 2014
Best Answer: i would say results may last for weeks after stopping use but so much depends on sun exposure, age, habits, etc. it's hard to believe that any topical product would deliver permanent results.

Which eye cream is best for me?-- Midnight Recovery Eye or Rosa Artica Eye cream? I have slightly dark circles under my eyes in the morning (due to lack of sleep?), but want a good moisturizer to hydrate both my eyelids and under-eye areas. I am 67 and have fine lines around my eyes.
A shopper on Feb 16, 2013
Best Answer: I have used the Midnight Recovery Eye treatment. As we age the tendency to have dark circles under the eyes and darkened eyelids seems to increase. It is heightened even more with a lack of sleep. I use a vey light coat of an exfoliant to help remove some of the dead skin and promote production of new skin. Following this treatment with the dark spot corrector.

I finished up chemotherapy treatments in September, about 1 month after, overnight my hair and eyes thinned out
During chemo everything was fine, so apparently it was a accumulated effect. My hair after much conditioning is starting to respond, but my eyes are still a concern. I have used a prescription strength eye cream with some results and added Botox to my upper eyebrow area. I am 63 soon to be 63 but have always had pretty good skin and eyes. My eyes are puffy in the morning with a pocket of fluid which improves during the day but never goes away, will your products help or am I headed to the plastic surgeon? Thanks, Kathy

Is this an ok product for a teenager to use? I have quite dark under eye circles and I haven't found another product that helps with that, but this sounds like it might do the trick. I don't need anti aging, but this product sounds like a good buy for the other reasons.
Greta W on Jul 7, 2014
Best Answer: My daughter and I pool our Kiehl's orders and she is the actual user so I asked her if it helps the dark circles. She said that the eye cream definitely helps lessen the dark areas, but she also commented that with her deep eye sockets and pale skin the dark circles will never go away. So it sounds like the product helps but does not cure. She has used the Midnight Recovery products since they came out so she must be satisfied.

I am 23 years old and I have small wrinkles under my eyes, along with dark circles. Would you recccommend this product vs. the powerful wrinkle cream? I can cover up my dark circles pretty well, but really would like to get rid of the wrinkles since I am young! Please let me know which product I should purchase.
A shopper on Jan 5, 2014
Best Answer: It's not just about eye cream, but about how much your diet and sleep. Get your rest, don't drink too much alcohol, and don't eat a lot of salty foods at night. Every morning and night wash your face, then put on a toner, then use a serum (Kiehl's doesn't have a great selection, so search elsewhere for serum), then a lotion. Midnight Recovery Eye cream is the best of any eye cream I've ever used (on MY skin, keep that in mind, because everyone is different), and I use it during the day and night.

Should you use this as your only moisturizer or put it under/over another cream? Is it important to use it right before bed? I typically shower around 6 and don't wash my face again before bed. I was wondering if I should put this on directly after the shower or right before bed. Thanks!
Maddy on Mar 25, 2013
Best Answer: I think after you shower is probably just fine. Your skin is soft and ready to soak it up. Use this under eye and follow with your nighttime moisturizer over the rest of you face. One caveat: Kiehl's claims that the product will reduce dark circles under the eyes. I have not found this to be true.
