It’s that time of the year again when winter has firmly settled in, and my skin is freaking out about it! It usually happens like clockwork with me- the moment that the days start getting shorter and the nights start getting longer, my skin goes into a crazy mode where it becomes super dry, starts to break out and look dull. Over the years I’ve learned how to handle it and what to use, and there is one brand in particular that I’ve sworn by for the past 3 winters now- Kiehl’s! This winter I am joining in to take part of the 28 day challenge to Change My Skin with Kiehl’s and I am super excited to be doing it again!

The first time that I fell in love with the Kiehl’s brand was back in 2014, which was the first time that I did the Change Your Skin Challenge. Kiehl’s is all about results, so much so that if you buy a Kiehl’s product and it doesn’t do what it promised by 28 days, you can take it back to the store. This 165 year old brand has apothecary roots, and they take their skin care very seriously! I am deeply in love with this brand so this isn’t much of a skin challenge for me, but more of an enjoyable, fun regime! I am so serious about the challenge, that yes I am sharing a photo of myself without makeup on! I am excited to track my progress over the next 4 weeks!


This year I am saying “High 5 To Great Skin” with Kiehl’s by committing to use their 5 products consistently over the next 28 days.The products are the Midnight Recovery Oil, Ultra Facial Cream, Creamy Avocado Eye Treatment, Powerful Strength Line Reducing Concentrate and Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution. Every week I will zoom into one product in particular when I give you my update, and this week I want to tell you about the amazing thing that is the Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate. Its results are seen immediately, hence the “Midnight” bit. It’s by far my favorite product from Kiehl’s, and it’s the one thing that is always guaranteed to save my skin in winter.


The Midnight Recovery Concentrate(known as the MRC) is a replenishing nighttime facial oil with distilled botanicals that visibly restores the appearance of skin by morning. It regenerates, restores, and replenishes skin for smoother, healthier looking skin overall. It works with the skin’s natural nocturnal activity – when skin is most receptive to repairing itself from daily aggressors. For me the immediate result of the MRC that I can see the next morning is the skins texture- it feels smoother and looks brighter by the next morning.


It’s packed with Lavender and Primrose oil, and the Lavender Oil gives the MRC its heavenly smell. To answer the question before you ask it- no, you do not use it on its own. I use it after cleansing and toning, and then I layer it under my moisturizer. It works like a dream, and this is the first product that I would recommend investing in. It retails for R755 for 30ml and I love, love, love it! 🙂


Join me again next week for a skin update and more information about the next product from the Change Your Skin Challenge! I will be zooming in on Creamy Avocado Cream next 🙂
