I wish I could give this 6 starts out of 5, that's how much a love it. I was skeptical of this at first just because I wasn't sure how I'd feel with an oil on my skin...now I just wish I had started using it sooner! This thing is a miracle worker! It only takes a drop or two a night, I've been using my bottle straight for almost 6 months and it's not even a fourth of the way gone. It absorbs almost instantly and as soon as it sinks it my skin feels softer. This has help with stubborn acne, blackheads, pores, uneven texture, pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles...seriously, it can do everything! This has become such a staple in my life that I already have a new backup bottle just in case and I purchased a bottle of the day time concentrate hoping it would be just a fraction as good (Hint: it is!). Anytime someone makes a comment on my skin and asks what I'm using, this is what I tell them it is!

My skin is dry and and currently I don't have issues with texture on skin. I received a sample of this item through Sephora play, and it's the second serum I've tried (the other is the Clarins double serum). The sample lasted a week and I used a dropper full each night before my moisturizer. I would pat this onto the skin all over my face, let it dry down for about a minute, and then apply my moisturizer.

I love this serum because it's lightweight on my skin and moisturizing -- but my favorite thing about this serum is how supple my skin looks and feels the next my morning. If you have the money to splurge on a full size, I recommend picking it up. A little goes a long way and it will last you a long time.

I received this in a skincare starter box from Kiehl's. I was very reluctant to try this at first. My skin frequently has bad reactions to new products and I was really concerned to how my skin would react to an oil. I wish I would have tried this years ago.

After the first night using this, I woke up with positively glowing skin. I have learned in the past that it may take a few days to have an adverse reaction so I still did not want to get my hopes up. After the third night of use, I notices that I started getting small blemishes on my chin where my skin is congested and has blocked pores. My hyperpigmentation from previous breakouts seemed to be fading, so I continued use. After about two weeks, my skin has never looked better. My skin is moisturized and smooth. Great product.

I recently went into Kiehl’s to buy something for my sister who is a fan of the brand. After talking with the sales associate, she hooked it up with samples to try. She gave me a whole night routine, including the Midnight Recovery Concentrate. OMG the smell! It is so soothing. After about two weeks of the samples, I rushed back and purchased the full size. I have severe dry skin and felt this helped moisturize certain areas, while improving overall tone and texture! I apply a small drop each on four fingers, rub together than pat into face. A little goes a long way with this. Highly recommend!

THIS PRODUCT IS MAGIC. I read so many good reviews on this, but I didn't truly understand how good it was until I bought it myself. I used this once and my skin was GLOWING the next morning. It helped with the breakout I was experiencing, reduced redness, helped with texture, reduced pore size, basically it did everything I could've asked for. I use 3-4 drop a couple nights a week so that way my skin doesn't get too used to it and I'm never disappointed after using it. A little goes a long way and it's definitely worth the price. Everyone needs this in their lives.

Review for: Full Size, New In Box, Since 1851 Concentrate-Colorless, Kiehls more...
Didn't like the consistency, which is pretty watery. The scent is okay and very very light, but it leaves my skin feeling...not quite tacky but not really smooth, and somewhat greasy almost. Pressing the back of my hand to where this has been applied leaves a sheen where my hand touched my face. I ended up using a Toner to get it off because it made my face feeling uncomfortable. The pad ended up slightly discolored, but not too badly. Not anything I want to try again. I'm sure it works for some people, just not for me.

It's not that this is horrible, it's just not enough for me. It's so pricey, and when something is so expensive, you have high expectations. But this didn't meet them. On the bright side, it didn't irritate my skin or make it feel drier than it was. But it didn't add much hydration, which is basically the entire point of a facial oil. When I looked at the ingredients, I noticed how "watered down" this product really is. So if your skin is on the oily side, this may be great for you, but it didn't help my normal-dry skin at all.

Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate

Truly an incredible product. A few drops of the replenishing elixir goes a long way. Light essential oils and distilled botanicals absorb into the skin leaving a soft, beautifully smelling face and décolletage. By morning skin is renewed; looking plumped, smooth, invigorated and restored. It helps reduce imperfections to give an even toned complexion.

This product is amazing. Aside from the fact that it smells fantastic because it's infused with lavender, which means that it's also common to the skin and to the senses, the texture is to die for. It is oil-based and works wonders. I bought this product on the recommendation of a Kiehl's associate while visiting the original store and I'm in love. I bought it for redness because I suffer from slight rosacea and it's made of significant difference. I will recommend to friends and I hope that if anyone reads this review they will seriously consider buying this product because it is worth the money. Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate

THIS IS MY HOLY GRAIL SERUM!!! So to be honest, the first time I tried this I was skeptical. My skin is somehow super oily but also super dry. After the first week of using this my skin felt so healthy and moisturized. I have gone through 2 full size bottles and am considering getting the jumbo size. I put this oil on after vitamin C serum and it is such a great combo! It moisturizes my dry patches without being too heavy on the rest of my face. If my skin is feeling extra dry, I drop 5-6 drops into my palm and pat it all over my face and neck. I use my Foreo Luna 2 and flip it to the anti-aging side and use it to work that serum. I'm not sure if that is a thing but I feel like it makes sure everything gets deep into my skin. I follow this oil with a light moisturizer (loving Origins High Potency Night-A-Mins oil free)  Origins High Potency Night-A-MinsOle Henriksen Truth Serum to lock it all in.

I was given a lot of this for samples, but am unsure how to use it. Should i put it all over my face or just target the age spots I have growing on the side of my face
