What's the different between Midnight Recovery Eye and Eye Alert?
A shopper on Jun 3, 2014
Best Answer: The primary difference is that midnight recovery eye is a slightly heavier moisturizer, which I think is intended to provide deep overnight moisture. It would probably feel too heavy for daytime use, although I've used it in winter when it's crisp outside and inside the heat is blaring (and dehydrating!). Eye Alert is much lighter and is intended to make tired eyes look a little less tired. It is a lighter moisturizer that can perk up your eyes, but in my experience, when used alone it doesn't necessarily lighten the appearance of dark undereye circles.

i am new to the kiehl's product. i have very dark circles under my eye and cant decide which is better for me..the midnight recovery eye or this eye alert or maybe something else? please help
A shopper on Sep 29, 2012
Best Answer: For very dark circles I'd use Eye Alert. Midnight recovery is nice, but Eye Alert is more effective for dark circles. Never did I have bags until my first born. This product makes a difference!

Why does it make my skin around my eye dry and ashy?
A shopper on Mar 29, 2012
Best Answer: Maybe you are putting way too much product on. You don't need much. Just get a little bit on your finger tip and rub it in.

whay is your best product to eliminate undereye puffiness?
A shopper on Apr 7, 2012
Best Answer: I've used this product for a couple of years now. At first it was great, but I'm getting diminishing returns the more I use it. I was thinking about trying the midnight concentrate stuff - a friend loves it.

Eye Alert does a great initial mask of of lines/puffiness though, if you want a short-term solution.

are you meant to use this on your actual eyelids as well? I have dry skin on my eyelid area
Benjamin D on Sep 17, 2013
Best Answer: Yes, The best aspect of this product is that you can use it over your entire eye and it does not cause any irritation. It is a great moisturizer - I use it twice a day everyday. Most eye creams burn if you get them in your eye trying to apply it. It is my favorite eye cream.

It this product good for African American men?
Mike J on Aug 24, 2014
Best Answer: I'm not African American, but the product, I think, is designed essentially to keep the tender skin under your eyes less dry and stimulated so you look and even feel more alert. Try it. It's pretty cool (literally and figuratively). I've used it for years. I hope this helps.

So I have tried a bunch of these types of products. $22 is pretty steep. Does this work?
John C on Aug 26, 2015
Best Answer: I know it's steep, but all you need is a tiny, pin-head sized dot per eye. A little goes a very long way. It should last well over a couple of months, even if it's used daily. It works and I love this product!

Best Answer: That's how I use these products, and it's the best combination for me (Eye Alert in the AM, Midnight Recovery in the PM). When paired with good sleep habits, I've found the combination to really help with the appearance of dark undereye circles.

Is this product used over or under an eye cream?
Leeanne H on Feb 20, 2015
Best Answer: When I use this product it is as a standalone. If you really wanted to use both this procudt and an eye cream I would suggest applying the cream after using the Eye Alert (and allowing it to dry completely) so that it can hold and take effect. One great thing about Eye Alert is that it is very light and great for the very delicate skin around the eye, especially the bottom portion.

Best Answer: This product is not limited to men, and I'm not sure why Kiehl's has started marketing it that way. It's definitely a unisex product.

Is this hydrating?
A shopper on Nov 29, 2014
Best Answer: Yes, but it's a very light moisture (think something more like a water-based gel and less like a cream). Despite the light feel, in my experience it hydrates for at least 10-12 hours.
