Best Answer: Hi! I use this every night after cleasing and I don't even use a night time moisturizer anymore! You truly don't need a pm moisturizer when you use this product (of course you still need a daytime moisturizer). This product is amazing and you will see results after the first application if you use a few extra drops. I also put it on the back of my hands and elbows. I hope you love it as much as I do!

A shopper on Apr 9, 2013

Can it use for day time?
Lorrie T on Oct 1, 2013

suited for overnight use.

I'm confused. My mom got a very small bottle with other Kiehl products. There were no directions, but intuitively thought you'd use a drop or two under the eye. It appears that you use it as an all over moisturizer? If it's a recovery complex, wouldn't that mean targeted areas? Thanks for the help in advance!
Jenny Medina
Wellnessa wellness Educator
A shopper on Apr 22, 2013
Best Answer: Midnight recovery complex does its best work on areas that are dry, sun-damaged and prone to wrinkles. These areas tend to be focal, but the product can be used anywhere. It works well combined with moisturizer. Just a drop or two goes a long way. It will sting if it gets in your eye, so use caution around the eye area. This is one of my favorite products and I am always rewarded when I use it consistently.

mhb m on Apr 8, 2012
Best Answer: I do not see why not. What this product targets would clearly benefit men as well as it is meant to help produce a smoother, restorative effect. I saw results fairly quickly so a man would not get get discouraged using it. Men would also find it "user friendly" as it is not greasy, it is absorbed by your skin right away and it doesn't have to be used with any other product to reap its benefits. It is actually a great idea-might give my husband some for Father's Day!!

I am over 80 yrs. old and have always and still have skin texture, tone that elicits complements. I want an overnite serum/creme that will not be greasy, absorb easily and leave skin in its natural state. My skin is normal, sometimes a little dry. Oftentimes I do not use an overnite moisturizer/serum as it is not needed and I wake up with my skin okay. Being blessed with good skin and good genes, what do you recommend for me. I am looking at Midnite Recovery Concentrate? Thanks in advance
Betty R on Apr 21, 2013
Best Answer: Betty, I think Midnight Recovery concentrate would be a great choice for your normal/slightly dry skin. It really has something magic in it, because my skin always looks and feels better after I've applied it before turning in for the night.
It has a wonderful light texture and is not oily or greasy. It's that extra touch that your skin will really appreciate, even though it sounds like you have been blessed with great skin.
You can apply as much or as little as you want; I also like to apply some on my neck, too. It's a luxury you definitely owe yourself!

I felt like the consistencies of the products clash, so I love using the midnight recovery concentrate at night by itself, only with the midnight recovery eye, that's when i've notices and felt it's effects most. I think the dark spot solution might be better by itself..

Will midnight recovery help both these problems? Thanks, Deb
A shopper on Sep 6, 2014
Best Answer: The midnight recovery concentrate is an excellent product. I use it in conjunction with the line-reducing concentrate which is actually what I would recommend more for the specific concerns you have. It contains a high concentrate of L-ascorbic acid which is the only form of stable Vitamin C you should use on your skin to experience notable reduction in lines/wrinkles and fading of age/sun spots.

can you use this around the eye area without causing irritation in your eyes?
First Name L on Apr 3, 2012
Best Answer: I use it around my eyes and it has not caused any irritation. Be mindful, however, that it does have a lavender oil in it so I'm guessing that could cause irritation for some. Kiehls does sell a Midnight Recovery specifically for the eye area, but I think the consistency is different. I love the original because it disappears into the skin. P.S. I put a tiny droplet in my liquid foundation to make it smooth on easier:) Oh...one last thing...it lasts a loooong time.

how do you apply product?
A shopper on Sep 4, 2014
Best Answer: I wash my face very thoroughly before bed and apply the liquid by the little dropper to my forehead, cheeks, chin and neck. I then rub it into my skin. It has a wonderful sensation and is fully absorbed in just a few minutes.

Does it smell like lavender?
A shopper on Aug 25, 2014
Best Answer: Maybe just a little, but it certainly does not have a strong fragrance. I have very sensitive skin and normally shy away from any fragrance and this does not irritate my skin.

I am only 25. Is this good for my skin?
sabrina z on Aug 4, 2014
Best Answer: I think the younger you start using products like this the better off you are. Anything you do for your skin now, will help (or hinder - such as tanning) when you get older.

Can this serum erase fine lines under the eyes?
vanessa t on Mar 18, 2014
Best Answer: I don't think any product can actually erase fine lines. I'd suggest you use the midnight recovery eye cream + avocado eye cream and finish the whole face with this serum before you go to bed. Fine lines will be less apparent in the morning.

Can I use the Midnight Recovery Concentrate by itself at night as a 'moisturizer' or does it have to be used in conjunction with another moisturizer?
A shopper on Feb 24, 2014
Best Answer: I think it's better to be used with another moisturizer. 'cause it's oil. it won't be absorbed completely by your skin. so another moisturizer will help to do so. like, you apply the essence or nutrition...whatever you call it ... you just apply it on your face, then you need something to make it stay longer~

A shopper on Jan 9, 2014

The serum is called midnight recovery, so i was wondering if you have to apply it at midnight or about that time and then go to sleep. also i was wondering if it is okay to apply the serum two hours before i sleep.?
A shopper on Jul 15, 2013
Best Answer: When I first tried it I was hesitant to apply before sleep, but now that I use it frequently and love it, I sometimes even use it as an AM moisturizer. I think there would be no problem using it a couple of hours before bed. The product is designed for evening because that is when your skin cells renew during sleep plus it has essential oils like lavender that promote relaxation. I've had great success with the product and hope you will as well- whenever you use it!

This product has been suggested to me for Psoriasis and my Eczema-1Is it an appropriate product,? &2 how many times a week should I apply it?
A shopper on Apr 21, 2013
Best Answer: I don't have psoriasis or eczema, but if those are caused by dryness or astringent items, I think this product would be helpful. I read the ingredients and seems very natural and it's very moisterizing without being oily. I really like it and I let my son use it when he had some major dry skin from swimming/chlorine and he felt it worked.

I have really dry peeling patches of skin and my makeup won't even stick on my skin. I went to Nordstroms and the lady had me get the multi corrective creme and midnight recovery concentrate. She told me to put the creme on and the midnight recovery over it at night and just the creme during the day. I have been using it for 3 weeks and love how it feels but it isn't helping my dry patches. What would you recommend for my dry patches on my face? Thanks for your help

Can I use midnight recovery concentrate with sunscreen? If so how?
Lolita on Jan 13, 2015
Best Answer: Really this product is meant to use at nighttime. Just warm a few drops in the palm of your hand and press into your clean and moisturized face and neck. Are you looking for a good moisturizer to wear with sunscreen for the daytime? The Midnight Recovery Concentrate is my favorite of all facial oils I have tried, and I have used quite a few. Hope this helps you. --aa

I have only skin...will this serum still work for me?
MiMi P on Feb 10, 2014
Best Answer: An oil-based product seems counterintuitive and I had the same concerns with my sensitive and oily or "dewy" skin as I like to call it! However, this product has never caused breakouts or irritation and it somehow is absorbed without clogging pores. I highly recommend it, and just go light on application to start out. I now apply a full dropperful to my face at night but started out with a few drops b/c of my concerns about oiliness. No fear there though now.
