Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (1) No (1)
Sharon C: I was told by a store employee that this should be the last thing that goes on your face before going to bed, but that seemed contrary to any other serum that I used. So I tried it both ways and it seems excessive. I'm in my late 40s and have found that using the midnight recovery alone with no moisturizer is effective enough to minimize lines overnight...hope this helps Apr 2, 2014

Diane J: Hi Kathleen,

After washing my face and applying the Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate, I then apply the Midnight Recovery Concentrate prior to putting on my moisturizer. I then finish up with eye cream and my face is soft, smooth and refreshed! Enjoy!!

barbara r: I put it on last -- and sometimes during the day just to give my skin some brightness.

Truthfully I don't know if that the right way. But in painting, it's always fat over lean. So, oil last.

That's my 2 cents.

Kathleen V: Barbara,
According to the blurb I finally found under the product it said to apply it before your night cream/ moisturizer. I am confused
Kathy Apr 2, 2014
barbara r: I just saw that -- so I'll change the routine. So much for painting theory. Apr 2, 2014
Trisha H: Depending on your skin type, you could use alone. I have combination skin and use without moisturizer at night. Also, a little bit goes a long way. If you have really dry skin, I'd use under moisturizer. Apr 2, 2014

Kathleen V: I have heard from 4 different people with 4 different answers. None of the agents ages were mentioned. Again, I love your products but I have not receive any direction from anyone online or at your stores.
Kathy Apr 2, 2014
kyndra S: I understand your frustration ! Interestingly, when I was first intuitive to kiehls it was by another makeup counter! I LOVE the midnight recovery. Litterally 5 drops is all u need. If u add moisturizer I would do it on top of the midnight as it soaks into your skin. But I think u might find its all the moisture u need. My skin is soft when I wake up. I'm 38. I live in Colorado and I worked outside all winter in harsh winter conditions. That's why I tried it & I love it. Hope this helps. Apr 2, 2014

Your sales people in the store are not that helpful with skin types and age. My two daughters and I all use Kiehl's but I want to make sure I am using the right products. Apr 2, 2014

MENGTAO Y: actually, I'm combination to oily skin. my T-area gets oily easily. But so far, I find everything goes well. and for the oily skin part, this product doesn't make it worse at all. Instead, it makes my face look better and better day by day. so, for me, I think it 's ok for oily skin. especially the winter is so dry in Philly. Feb 28, 2014

Cody H: I have combination skin so I cannot answer as to whether this product works great from oily skin. I do know that the concentrate soaks into your skin and by the morning does not have the greasy feeling of the nighttime application. So far, I love this product for my combo skin, but cannot speak to just oily based skin. Feb 18, 2014
Reply to Cody Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Trisha H: I don't think that it would affect your oily skin at all. In your case, you may only need to use a small drop before bed. You'll wake up to glowing skin in the morning. I have combination skin, and I've been using this product for about a year. Even in the summer months when my skin is bit more oily. Give it a try! Feb 16, 2014

Jane M: I have combination skin even though I am 65, and I have found that my skin looks great in the morning after using Midnight Recovery.

A shopper asked: When using Concentrate,

I apply on my cheeks, forhead, neck, and back neck and sometimes fastly tap on face all around.

Recently, my nose strarts to get stuffy and then notice I will have to either blow my nose. Last night, my nose started bleeding.

Would this be a alergic reaction?
Mar 17, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Gretchen B: As a nurse, I can tell you that a stuffy nose usually is not a symptom of an allergic reaction to a topical product. If you were to develop a rash where the product was applied that may be a mild effect of an allergic reaction. Severe allergic reaction to anything will cause difficulty breathing, NOT a stuffy nose. Based on the date of your post, my best guess would be that you're experiencing effects of seasonal allergies, such as grass, pollen or ragweed. For the bleeding, I would suggest a small humidifier close to your bed while you're sleeping. This will immensely improve the dryness in your nasal cavity (also potentially caused by excessive nose blowing due to seasonal allergies). Hope this helps. May 22, 2014

rima m: I guess t could be an allergic reaction tp Midnight Recovery Concentrate< but also good be any number of other things, or an allergic reaction to something else. I would stop using for a while and see if you still get the stuffy nose.

For myself, I have been using the product for more than a year, and have had no reactions at all.
