Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate + Alicia Keys (Keep a Child Alive) review

          Today I have the scoop on a cool collaboration between Kiehl's and Alicia Keys : a limited edition 1oz. bottle of Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate! As a longtime fan of Ms. Keys (Songs in A-Minor was a staple in my early CD collection), I already pretty excited; however I was even more so after learning that one hundred percent of net profits (up to $200,000) will go towards Alicia Keys' Keep A Child Alive Foundation, which supports children and families in Africa, affected by HIV. It's an incredibly meaningful cause.

          If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, you've probably seen that I've been testing a bottle of Kiehl's Midnight Recovery concentrate all this week, courtesy of Kiehl's. (I have the regular bottle, however check out the limited packaging here on The concentrate is a blend of light essential oils; usually I take three drops and pat them onto my skin. The result is a nice, hydrated look that I've been enjoying in the cold Chicago weather. I can see why the concentrate is a favorite amongst skincare enthusiasts!

          The bottom line? Whether you're looking to replenish an old favorite, or you're waiting for a reason to jump, it's a great time to check out the Alicia Keys 'Keep A Child Alive' limited edition bottle Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate, available online and in Kiehl's boutiques. Thanks for reading! Are you a fan of the Midnight Recovery concentrate? What are your favorite Kiehl's products?

Love, Dovey.

  1. Hey Dovey, this is sweet! I like how they are donating all the profits to a charitable organization! I have tried a deluxe sample of this one, and I liked it enough. It does seem to contain quite a bit of lavender oil though, so I try not to use it every night. I am not allergic to it per se, but I approach essential oils with a bit more caution :)

  2. I need to try this! I tried the Midnight Recovery Eye, and actually quite liked that one. I finished a tube ;)

  3. I love this oil so much, such a lovely venture they have embarked on with Keys.
