Before I use a skincare product on my face, I always research it thoroughly. I have to be careful since I have acne-prone skin! I look for reviews - did a lot of people complain of rashes or pimples? Are they happy with the results? Will they buy it again? If the answers are negative, I can't in all good sense use the new product. I'd really rather save my skin.
It took me a while to get to the Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate (P2,880). I was breaking out heavily early last April (pre-period acne is a bitch) so I wasn't going to be foolish about trying new things. When the breakouts stopped though, I really needed something to fix the damage. I already have a favorite serum but hey, I thought it was worth a gander since it received heaps of good reviews.
I won't beat around the bush - this Kiehl's serum is the bomb. It's amazing. I've used it for over a month now and it did exactly as it promised, which is to revive my dull, flaky, blemish-ridden skin. It put me off at first because it is pure oil, not like serums that come in gel textures that sink on skin. But that's a minor compromise; this oil really knows how to moisturize and keep skin supple.
What's in it? The Kiehl's MRC is a potent mix of squalane, evening primrose oil, jojoba seed oil, vitamin E (tocopherol), rosemary oil, lavender oil, and cucumber extract, to name a few.
