I am a big fan of Kiehl’s products. i already use their face wash, midnight recovery concentrate and line reducing serum. Their Midnight Recovery concentrate was one of my first purchase, and I swear by that product. I cannot literally go to sleep without putting few drops of it on my face. That’s the only skincare product that I travel with. I only need a few drops on my face at night, and it turns my extremely dry skin into healthy, radiant skin. It completely reverses the effects of a long flight journey.
When I was invited last month for the launch of this Kiehl’s Daily Reviving Concentrate , I was super excited. You must have ready the full event post + pics here. Kiehl’s Daily Reviving Concentrate is a lighter version of Midnight Recovery Concentrate. I was really lucky to get this wonderful product to take home. In this post, I am writing my experience using this products, my first impressions on using it etc.

My experience using Kiehl’s Daily Reviving Concentrate
This is a facial oil that can be used during day time, it’s a very light weight oil than their Midnight Recovery Concentrate. It doesn’t feel greasy/heavy on the skin.
The oil has a pale yellow color, very light weight, with a lovely warm citrusy sort of smell which I think comes from the ginger root. I use about 2-3 drops and smooth it over the entire face and neck. It takes about 2 minutes to completely absorb. I use it after my serum and before my moisturizer. I had no issues with applying my usual skincare products and makeup on top of this facial oil
It contains sunflower oil to help reinforce the skin barrier, tamanu oil to reduce the appearance of daily damage & replenish and soothe skin, and ginger root essential oil to preserve skin efficacy. I have a very sensitive skin and this product hasn’t irritated my skin or caused any breakouts. It really does an awesome job of hydrating the facial area. Also fight daily skin stresses and fatigue, helping to prevent your skin from looking tired.
The dropper makes it super easy to control the product. last time I purchased some items from store, I got 5 ml sample versions of midnight recovery concentrate. I am planning to reuse the mini bottles to take the product in while travelling. I have a lot of long journeys coming up in Dec. I cannot ever travel without this product.
Overall a wonderful product that fights daily skin stresses and fatigue, helping to prevent your skin from looking tired. Very very lightweight on skin and sinks into my skin very quickly. Never caused any irritation or breakouts. I find my skin more healthy and radiant throughout the day. Also, there are no dry patches on my face. I am doing the microdermabrasion treatment at home and this product helps a lot in healing the skin faster. Also, the fresh citrus scent is not overpowering even for my sensitive nose. Hydrates the skin all day. • Paraben free • 100% natural origin • Mineral oil free • Noncomedogenic • Non-acnegenic. Contains sunflower oil, tamanu oil and ginger root essential oil which are excellent for skin. I am very much sure, I will repurchase this product. I have already purchased one for my sister.

I’m loving all three.. Have you used Iris essence? How’s it? The lady said it speeds up absorption level of further products..
Also, have you used CC dark spot solution? How’s it different from DRC affect wise? Let me know 🙂
