A Skincare Overhaul.


My evening skincare routine has had a little makeover as of late, I’ve been trialling some new products and oh boy, what a difference they’ve made! A lot of people commented on my skin in my latest video (naked skin, hoorah!) and I knew it was down to this trio of great products!

First up, Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate (£36) – I bought this on a whim a month or two ago and I have been using it ever since. It’s a really lightweight, concentrated elixir that contains a shedload of beautiful and beneficial ingredients to regenerate your skin overnight. It’s very much like a light oil and I use a few drops each night on my skin to give myself a little massage and then allow it to absorb in. I’ve tried a fair few oils in my time but this one has to be the lightest, it’s absorbs in so quickly and instantly adds such a healthy glow to my skin.
I mix in a few drops of another new favourite, the Clinique Turnaround Concentrate Radiance Renewer (£33) *, a morning and night serum. I don’t often use Clinique in my skincare routine but this has really bowled me over. It uses new technologies to gently exfoliate the skin, encouraging cell renewal while you sleep so you wake up with bright and healthy looking skin. So far it’s lived up to the label and I have to say, my skin is looking better than ever in terms of how clear it is. I find that mixing these two products together creates a light-weight duo that leaves my skin brighter and more nourished.

The final product is the Clinique Turnaround Concentrate Overnight Moisturiser (£34) *, it goes hand in hand with the aforementioned serum as it also helps to smooth over skin whilst you snooze. It again provides gentle exfoliation to rid the skin of any rough or flaky patches and keeps the skin well moisturised at the same time. I’m pretty picky when it comes to moisturisers but I’ve really warmed to this, it’s lightweight and doesn’t leave your skin feeling tacky and also helps to give a big dose of nourishment! A definitely winner for those who want clear, bright skin (surely that’s everyone?).

So my nightly routine has been dwindled down to these three wonderful products and my skin is looking great, they go hand in hand for a brighter complexion. What are your thoughts?

    I love love love the sound of the Kiehls Midnight Recovery Serum – I’ve always been really impressed with any skincare products I’ve tried from Kiehls so may just have to go and try this bad boy.

    I’ve seen a lot about the Kiehls Concentrate – I can’t bring myself to spend the money on it though! The Clinique looks lovely too, I really like lightweight moisturisers! Thick ones tend to like…peel off me, if that makes sense! x

  • Kelli

    Clinique makes one of my favorite lipsticks but I’ve never tried anything else by them. I’m definitely intrigued by the radiance renewer, though!

  • Claire @ aucuparia brumalis blog

    It’s very interesting, it seems, that a lot of people like the Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate, it hasn’t worked for me at all. My friends also like it a lot. I think my skin is just way too dry though.

  • Sandy

    I really want to try the Kiehl’s oil instead of my Estée Lauder ANR, sounds great!


  • Millie

    Great post! I really want to try something from Keihls, their products seem lovely! 🙂 ♥

  • Vicki

    I absolutely love the Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate – my mum bought it by it wasn’t for her so she passed it on to me (lucky me). I have enjoyed using this and a little goes a long way. I am getting a lot more into oils and I also picked up the Clarins Lotus Oil a couple of months ago after reading your reviews. You use the best skincare!

  • Alice

    you are bad for my bank balance. You have such good taste in skincare. x

  • Laura

    Interesting discoveries! Will have to have a wee look in-store.. X

  • Sonia

    I love Kiehl’s Midnight recovery concentrate, you really do wake up with soft and glowing skin.

  • Felicity

    I love the look of all of these – I’ve never tried Kiehl’s before but I’m a diehard Clinique girl. x

  • Catriona

    I got a sample of the Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate before and loved it! It’s quite pricey so I’ve been reluctant to buy it, but I might have to stop in SpaceNK sometime and give it another little try… I’ve been looking for a serum or intensive moisturiser to use between AHA nights.

  • Sarah Bryden

    LOVE that Clinique Turnaround Concentrate serum. I really need to invest in a full size when bonus time is on again.

    Sadly I didn’t get on with the Kiehl’s MRC, it didn’t absorb into my skin. Those Clinique products sound fantastic though!

  • Tiggy

    I’ve heard some great things about the Midnight Recovery oil. Looking forward to trying this out!

  • dannii ofe
