Tried & Tested | Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Eye

PRODUCT REVIEW | SKINCARE
By Huda Heidi Kattan


It’s really hard to please me! My sisters will tell you, I get to try a lot of products, and it’s very rare for me to find one that is perfect! But nonetheless, I can’t help but always be hopeful that one day some skin, makeup or hair genius out there will answer my wishes and give me a product that will turn my inner princess (in my case, Disney Princess, I love Princess Jasmine), on the outside!

So I’m still waiting, but I have to say, I have found some kick ass products in the process of waiting! A product I just recently started using and I have to say, it REALLY has helped with my sleep deprivation, is the Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Eye cream. Ok, I’ll be honest, when I first got it, I really didn’t think it was that great! I tried it and I read a ton of amazing reviews, but it just didn’t work for me! My eye problem is serious! I know I’m supposed to sleep and after writing that last post about the importance of sleep with beauty, I actually got a little scared! But let’s face, if you work too much, study too much, play too much or just have kids, it’s hard to manage a healthy sleeping pattern!

I honestly hate it when I wake up and my eyes are super puffy! I am obsessed with using my cold towel compress, but on days when I need an extra oomph, I use the compress and I apply a SUPER generous amount of the Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Eye under my eye serum! It has helped me look AMAZINGLY awake on days when I honestly got 5 hours of sleep! It always make me look well rested and I love that it boots bags while I sleep! It’s always nice to know something is helping me with the beauty process! 🙂

    the concentrate is fantastic too. i use both at night and i really do believe that they help me get to sleep and when i wake up in the morning, my skin is super soft.

    Do you apply the serum after the cold towel compress… I’m obsessed with the cold towel for my eyes I’m really excited you’re talking a lot about the under eye puffiness it’s just frustrating to have that. Thanks Love!

    I know what you mean about not getting enough sleep, rest etc! I think in conjunction u should use Kiehls midnight recovery concentrate and the Overnight biological Peel and let me know what you think… well don’t use them together! Those two are life savers if i need to look “radiant” and “fresh” the next morning!
    hehe I’m not a big fan of every kiehl’s product but I’ve had amazing results with these two.. was very disappointed with the acai range.. Before i forget! Their Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution is amazing! i had a few blemish scars and they have worked wonders on fading them out and making them look more even! let me know!

    Batool – Im a muslim girl only 13 but i ihswed of wearing the hijab at the age of 8/9 So as for that girl who is wearing the scarf at the age of 9 and as one person pposted. Did u ever think she had hit puberty very early or maybe that she felt it was nessesary to cover her self at that age. What rite do u have telling people they r to young to wear a scarf. Oh and as for ugly and pretty scarfs u r missing the point. A head scarf is supposed to free u . A good example is a bird. This bird has been put in this opressive cage were by the louder is crys the more food it will get (the more revealing a persond dresses the more normal it is or the more attention it gets) when this bird embraces islam which is basicaly the key to its cage it can fly . Now for me it dont matter wether i am a flying dove or pigeon. As long as i am flying. Sorry for the kind of strange example but that was the best way i can explain it. And people feel there are too mmnay rules and obligations to the head scarf but think of it this way you have to cover ur baeuty(not just ur skin)I also dont understand why i have to defend myself . It is perfectly fine to walk out side in miniskirts and a ton of makeup on no matter how many rapes and abusive situations in may cause. But if someone chooses to cover themselves and to hide their buaty this is somehow a problem. i am equal to any man because i have not degraded myself to the standard many countries have set of a women which is that of a sex object. I beg of u to read the holy quran before u make judgements against muslims. When i talk to fellow christian students at my high school i always ask the quetions linked to the bible because to be honest that is alot more positive atitude it shows that i am actually serious when i ask them something and not trying to waster their time. And i think many muslims(not all)would be much more happy to answer questions when they now that person is serious and not just going to give them the sam old well thats stupid whats the point of the that enquiry.P.S Very sorry about spelling and grammer mistakes but i was in quite a rush to get my opinions forward and i think that was the most important thing
