Kiehl's Daily Reviving Concentrate Review

Kiehl's Daily Reviving Concentrate Review

I live for facial oils, I really do but admittedly they are something I associate with my night time skin care routine. As a matter of a fact other than Kiehl's Daily Reviving Concentrate, I can't think of another oil like product I own that is aimed at day time use. With the Autumn being particularly drying on my complexion and no signs of that letting up over the next few months, I have replaced my typical daily moisturiser in place of Kiehl's Daily Reviving Concentrate, and I have to say my skin simply laps it up.

Kiehl's Daily Reviving Concentrate Review

Kiehl's Daily Reviving Concentrate is a lightweight facial oil that has been intended for day time use, as a matter of fact it has been created to partner with the best selling Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate; one for day protection and one for night repair - clever really. You can of course use Kiehl's Daily Reviving Concentrate on it's own to increase hydration and protect against environmental aggressors.

Let's begin with the texture of Kiehl's Daily Reviving Concentrate shall we? Admittedly as this is an oil based product it is a little on the greasy side (a less is more approach is best applied here), it does however absorb quickly and all without leaving behind any form of residue. My advice would be to apply after you wash your face, leave for five minutes to fully absorb, next apply your daily SPF and then begin your daily make up routine (that is of course if you have one). Despite being a little oily (hey it is a skin oil), I can personally vouch that it does not alter the finish of any make-up products applied on top nor does it decrease the staying prowess of cosmetics - I can also state that it does not overwhelm oily/combination skin types nor encourage them to produce more sebum. As a side note it does smell incredible - slightly floral and fresh yet not overly strong, never irritating to the senses nor complexion for that matter.

The real purpose of Kiehl's Daily Reviving Concentrate is to brighten and perk up tired skin, used daily it aims to enhance natural radiance and erase signs of fatigue. Despite my sleep pattern being all over the place, my skin isn't typically dull - I  put this down to having a naturally oily complexion, as such I can't really comment on the brightening aspects but I can say that my skin is definitely more supple. With a combination of artificial heat, ice cold rain and winds, the Winter has taken its toll on my complexion - Kiehl's Daily Reviving Concentrate helps to prevent my face from drying out and I like to think it protects my skin to some degree too.

Kiehl's Daily Reviving Concentrate Review

Kiehl's Daily Reviving Concentrate is of 100% natural origin, mineral oil free, non-comedogenic (won't clog pores), non-acnegenic oil (safe for blemish prone complexions) - so typically a safe bet for all skin types. It contains Tamanu Botanical Oil helps to reduce the appearance of daily damage (think fine lines and sun damage) as well as being able to replenish and comfort the skin. To strengthen the skin's natural barrier which in turn will protect the skin from environmental damage, Kiehl's have selected Sunflower Botanical Oil. Such oil also hydrates, softens and visibly improves skin texture. Lastly we have Ginger Root Essential Oil - a natural oil that will protect against radicals and environmental aggressors (think pollution and general city living) with antioxidant protection. I do want to stress that yes, this oil may protect against certain elements of everyday, environmental damage, it is in no way a substitute for SPF - Kiehl's Daily Reviving Concentrate does not protect the skin from UV damage.

If your typical daily moisturiser is no longer cutting it, and you need something light yet deeply nourishing, I can not recommend Kiehl's Daily Reviving Concentrate enough. I do think those with a drier complexion will benefit more from the radiance boosting qualities but for instant, comforting and long lasting hydration, you will be hard pushed to beat this product. I particularly enjoy the fact that by adding it to my routine, I am protecting my skin and hopefully warding of the signs of ageing, that little longer. It is a ten out of ten from me.

  2. This sounds like something I could try! I def stay away from using oil during the day, but on the days that I won't wear a base I feel like this could actually work for me.

  6. At £36 it seems kind of prices but I would imagine this would last for a while.

  8. I use the Midnight Recovery Concentrate pretty much every night, I might actually need to invest in this next time I have some money to spend! I feel like my skin could really benefit from this. Great post!

  13. I had a sample of the Midnight Recovery Concentrate that I was excited to try but then I discovered it had lavender oil in it so I couldn't use it. I don't believe this one contains lavender though and I am curious to give it a try. I have dry skin that struggles to absorb products and I've never considered using an oil in the morning so I'd be interested to see how it would work for me x

  14. This year I've really got into Kiehls and this sounds like my cup of tea. Will probably look to add this to my routine in the new year. :)
