About Midnight Recovery Concentrate and Midnight Recovery Eye
In the day, your skin is busy fending off environmental aggressors like free radicals. At night, the skin gets a breather to repair the damages, as there are few environmental aggressors to detract it from its healing process. The formulations of Midnight Recovery Concentrate and Midnight Recovery Eye enhance the natural repair and regeneration process at night, when your skin is at its maximum ability to absorb nourishing ingredients.
This dream team is formulated with a complex blend of botanical oils including Squalane, Evening Primrose and essential oils including therapeutic Lavender which are rich in Omega 3, 6 and 9 to biologically replicate skin’s natural lipids and dramatically restore skin overnight. Both products are free from artificial fragrances, parabens and mineral oil, nourishing your whole face in the most natural way possible.
i’m sure getting a good start to the day is something that sets the mood for the entire day. when i wake up only to find a tired and dull complexion staring at me back from the mirror, i have to admit it, i feel damn lousy! and this lousy feeling carries through to the rest of the day, and intensifies whenever i get a chance to see my face in the mirror 🙁
due to my late sleeping hours and unhealthy lifestyle, my skin is ALWAYS looking so so dull and i am so unconfident and conscious that when i leave the house without makeup on, i always keep my fingers crossed that noone recognizes me on the streets. =.= (but alas, Murphy’s Law dictates that when you’re looking your worst, you’re bound to run into someone who recognizes you. happens to me all the time)
i have combination skin, and my first concern was that the Midnight Recovery Concentrate would be too oily/rich for me and cause breakouts. thus, i did a bit of research, and found out that the skin’s moisture level directly relates to the amount of oil that the skin naturally produces. our skin NEEDS oil, and if the skin doesn’t get enough oil, it will lead to fine lines, inflammation and lack of luminosity. however, too much oil also causes issues, such as clogged pores, acne, and a complexion so shiny and oily, you’d end up looking like a frying pan!
Skincare products that contain any type of oil will make oily skin oilier—leading to acne and congested pores.
Using a skincare treatment with purely derived essential and botanical oils, which mimic the same oils that occur naturally in the skin, can be extremely beneficial to every skin type—from extremely dry, combination, and excessively oily.
thus, finding the perfect moisture (aka oil) balance is crucial to have resilient, radiant skin! essential and botanical oils are rich in healthy skin essentials such as moisturizing fatty acids, including Omegas 3, 6 and 9, which strengthen the intercellular lipid layer as well as help to stabilize skin’s natural oil production. consistent daily use of these types of oils improve skin’s natural barrier function, resulting in a smooth, hydrated, and clear complexion.
moral of the story: NOT ALL OIL IS BAD FOR YOU!

i really loved how my skin felt the next morning, after just one night of application! all it took was three drops of concentrate that was easily absorbed into the skin with gentle pats. the concentrate doesn’t feel oily at all after application, and it has a natural lavender scent that is calming and relaxing, perfect for bedtime! i woke up with skin that felt more moisturized, supple and plump, and had a never-seen-before radiance to it! 😀 😀 😀 i swear, it is THAT miraculous!!! newfound love!
