A Movie Date With Kiehl's ..and Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate

Last Friday (25/6/2010), I went to an exclusive Kiehl's movie date with Rachel to watch Knight and Day starring Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz... I saw Shirleen at the event ... and so coincidence that she was just seated next to me in the theatre.

Plus we got the chance to try out the latest Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate which will be launching this coming July... The movie Knight and Day was chosen because it sort of coincide with Kiehl's most recent launched day product ( Kiehl's Ultra Light Daily UV Defense SPF50+++ suncreen) and the upcoming Kiehl's night product ( Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate).. Kudos to Kiehl's marketing team for coming up with such a brillant way to promote their Night and Day products at the same time.

Each of the invited guests was given a goodie bag which consists of Kiehl's midnight recovery concentrate and ultra light daily UV defense SPF50+++ sunscreen samples, a drink and a packet of yummy sweet popcorns... but I got an additional surprise - A full size midnight recovery concentrate! (which will only be for sale from July onwards in Singapore..Yipee!!) 

and..... I just discovered an interesting item in my press kit..

When Melissa passed me the press kit, she told me there were also photographs in it .. Firstly, I opened up the CD on the left, and found photographs for Kiehl's midnight recovery concentrate in it, so I proceeded to open the next CD .. and I was shocked to see that its an empty disc.. (an empty audio disc) ... I doubt Melissa will give me an empty disc, LOL! after trying out for about a minute, I suddenly heard some music..  and then saw my music playlist displaying 17 tracks... its actually an audio disc, and a perfectly working one  (Ok, I admit I very blur, don't even know the proper way to open a disc)

Then I took the CD cover and saw a piece of paper at the back..

Yes, the CD actually contains 17 songs titles relating to sleeping, dreaming, midnight, night.. ( I read the press kit before I opened the 2 CDs... so I know the reason why it was given to us).. I was impressed by the Kiehl's team to even think of including this nice and meaningful disc in the press kit for us... It will be specially useful for me, a midnight owl help me to fall asleep easier and earlier... Know why???

During the night, our skin's metabolism of nutrition is at a maximum rate due to the circadian rhythm of the body. Sometimes called the "Human Clock", a circadian rhythm is roughly a 24-hour cycle which differs during the day and night.

During the day, due to it exposure to daily aggressions such as the sun and pollution, the skin focuses on protecting itself. While we sleep at night, the skin is most receptive to rejuvenation and recovery as there are few environmental stressors to detract from its healing process... and Kiehl's midnight recovery concentrate boosts the repair and regeneration of skin when it is naturally programmed to best absorb active ingredients, typically between Midnight to 4am.. (so ideally, we must sleep before midnight, better still before 10am if we really want good skin) ... that is also the reason why people recommend to consume bird nest in the middle of the night, as our skin is "working" during that few hours.

With a good sleeping pattern (falling into sleep before midnight and having at least 8 hours of sleep) plus the right midnight serum for optimal skin repair during the night.. we really can sleep tight and restore our skin overnight...

Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate (S$90) is a powerful blend of 99.8% natural ingredients - Essential and botanical oils, free from paraben, fragrance and mineral oil.

So what are the essential and botanical oils it contains?

Lavendar Essential Oil

Rosemary Essential Oil

Rose Essential Oil

Evening Primrose Oil

2) Tap fingertips onto oil lightly.
3) Press fingertips gently on the cheeks, forehead and chin to distribute evenly. Pat, do not rub.

Shelf-Life for Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate? 

Despite being paraben free, Kiehl's midnight recovery concentrate contains no water and artificial preservatives thus it is able to preserve iteself. It has a shelf-life of 18 months once you open the bottle. A bottle should be able to last a long time since 2-3 drops is all you need every night.

I have yet to try Kiehl's midnight recovery concentrate on my face.. so unable to provide my reviews here...( But you are able to try it now!!!)

Although it is not launched in our stores yet, you can get sample of this product to try it first by sending an sms to Kiehl's today. Or wait till it is launched in store this July, and go get a sample to try on your skin and see if you like before investing in the full size product.

Sleep tight tight at night and wake up to beautiful skin in the morning! ('',)

A big thank you to Kiehl's for inviting me to this movie date and treating me to the latest Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate and the CD which includes relaxing songs to help me sleep early all through the night... (Nice meeting up with Melissa, Eliz and Zling..Thank you ladies for all your hard work in making this event a successful one) ('',)
