Late-Night Quick Fix: Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate

Late-Night Quick Fix: Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate
(Photo courtesy Kiehl's)Rough night last night? Whether you had one too many cocktails at happy hour or you stayed up late working on that big project a.k.a. watching reruns of Breaking Bad, you might be feeling—and looking—a little drab in the morning. We all know the feeling.

But we'll let you in on a little secret. To keep us from looking like zombies in the morning, we've armed ourselves with Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate. This handy little product has a concentration of botanical extracts, which are formulated to replicate skin's natural lipids, i.e. repair skin over night. It's 99 percent naturally-derived and is paraben free. Apply this soothing oil to the face after washing and removing makeup. Not only does it instantly supply skin with moisture, but it doesn't leave skin feeling oily or messy. (No oil puddles on the pillow is always a good thing.) In the morning after using this serum, our skin is smooth, hydrated and supple—and any hint of a late night has vanished. Let's just say we're keeping this sucker on hand for our Saturday night adventures for sure.

And right now we don't have to feel guilty about stocking up on this serum. In December, Kiehl's partnered up with Alicia Keys to release a special edition of the formula, which supports children and families affected by HIV. One hundred percent of the profits (up to $200,000) from the special edition bottles are benefiting the organization Keys co-founded, Keep a Child Alive. A beauty product that acts as a late-night face fix and supports an amazing cause? Yes, please.
