Kiehl's Midnight Discovery Diaries ChallengeWhen Kiehl’s Manila asked Kikay Corner to be part of 2013 Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Diaries Challenge, I first had to check what the products are made of before I agreed to give it a go. As I am already leaning towards natural ones, I was very pleased to know that this powerful concentrate is 99% naturally-derived and paraben-free.

Kiehl's Midnight Recovery

Midnight Recovery Concentrate and the Midnight Recovery Eye are made of potent concentrations of botanical extracts specifically formulated to biologically replicate skin’s natural lipids for optimal skin repair throughout the night.

paraben free, fragrance free, mineral oil freeAfter learning about mineral and other petroleum by products being responsible of speeding up the skin’s aging process, I have avoided it since at all cost. Mineral oil is said to block pores, making the skin keep in the toxins that cause premature aging of the skin. So dear readers, if you love your skin any, check out the skin products sitting on your dresser and toss the ones with paraben and mineral oil straight to the bin! 🙂

My first Kiehl’s product was Kiehl’s Facial Fuel No-Shine Moisturizing Lip Balm and I love it to this day. Recently, I also got to try Kiehl’s Açaí Damage-Correcting Moisturizer from Sample Room. The latter’s being organic antioxidant is what drew me to it to begin with. Now, can I just say that I am one thrilled gal that I get to take on this Midnight Recovery Diaries Challenge? I’m 36. While people would say that I don’t look my age, whether they mean that or not, I do appreciate these things that are now commercially available to set back my skin’s aging process.
