A few weeks ago I popped into the Kiehl’s boutique on Armitage in Chicago to pick up a tub of the Kiehl’s Ultra Oil Free Gel Cream. It was an ordinary day of errand running, but it became THAT much more exciting when the sales associate showed me a tube of the not-yet-available for purchase Midnight Recovery Eye cream. Such a tease, that was, because it was love at first application. The good news is that it’s available now on Kiehl’s.com.
Nothing chaps me more than a moisturizing eye cream that doesn’t do anything but moisturize. I need it to work, as in werk. Midnight Recovery Eye activated all of the right senses. The smell is phenomenal, thanks to the addition of lavender essential oils. The texture is creamy and delicious, and feels great to the touch—perfect for the delicate under-eye area. Plus, the ingredients mean this eye cream is going to werk when you are resting. Butcher’s Broom does the heavy lifting by improving circulation and reducing puffiness. It also contains the healing lipid Squalane which is very replenishing to the skin and Evening Primrose Oil which repairs skin and boosts radiance. In other words, even if you don’t get enough sleep, you’ll look like you did!
Midnight Recovery Eye is $36, and available on Kiehl’s.com. My gal in Chicago said mass distribution is October, so it may be a few weeks before you see it in stores.
