Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate Face Oil

For a gal who's surrounded by coworkers who are fluent in skin oils and retinol serums, I'm pretty lax about my own beauty routine. For a long time, I didn't do much to keep my complexion clear and skin dewy. Washing my face with a plain old Dove beauty bar did the trick, and I was on my merry way. As I've started to get older, though, I've found that my skin is a little more fickle than it once was. In response, I've started to actually spend more time on my skin, both in the morning and at night.

The only problem: I'm quick to tire of routines, jumping on a cult-favorite product's bandwagon one day, only to abandon it a week later. However, on a recent trip to the mountains, I noticed that my friend was absolutely glowing — her skin so naturally clear and dewy that it almost looked airbrushed. Her secret? Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate. Naturally, I had to have it.

With just a few drops of the face oil massaged into my weary face at night, a bright, even complexion is revealed in the morning. Bye, bye redness! Hello, radiance! My various dry spots soon cleared up, replaced by supple skin that's soft to the touch. Plus, the lavender and evening primrose oils smell divine, lulling me to sleep the second my head hits the pillow. All in all, it's the extra step I never knew I needed. And it seems like I'm not the only one, since it's garnered quite the large, loyal following online. In short, I won't be abandoning it anytime soon.

I often fall out of skin-care routines because they feel like a chore, but applying this oil elixir each night feels like a luxury — like a well-deserved end-of-day treat for my tired, worn-out skin. While the small-sized bottle of the concentrate usually rings in at a pretty $52 (I'm convinced it's worth every penny), the larger-sized bottle is currently available at a very compelling discount as part of Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale. As in, over $40 off the regular price. So if you want to give your skin a little extra love, shop the nighttime face oil below.
