Kiehls Nightly Refining Micro-Peel Concentrate

Kiehls Nightly Refining Micro-Peel Concentrate is a product I knew very little about until it landed in my lap and having read very little about it, I had no idea whether or not it was any good, lived up to any claims it made or something else. For once, it was exciting to use a product that I only new about thanks to the information on the box.

With a price tag of £41 it needed to be superb for me to give it the thumbs up and whenever you read a skincare review on this blog, I will have used or have been using that product for weeks, sometimes months before putting fingers to keyboard. It is rare that anything will appear if I have never used it. 

The description:
“Nightly Refining Micro-Peel Concentrate helps to refine the feel of rough texture, revealing newly radiant, refreshed skin. Clinically-demonstrated to help accelerate surface skin cell turnover*, this facial serum freshens and smooths the skin for a youthful radiance, visibly refining skin tone and texture over time.”


So with claims to restore radiance and soften skin within one week of use, as well as to visibly refine texture and even skin-tone within a week of use whilst renewing the skin without irritation is quite a bold claim and one that I found quite exciting, because my past experience with Kiehls has only ever been amazing.

So what is it and how do you use it? This product is a leave-on serum which has the description said, has been formulated to accelerate the skin cell turnover process to reveal fresher, smoother, younger-looking skin. To do this it is enriched with sustainably-sourced quinoa husk extract from which, its powerful exfoliating properties help release dull surface skin while visibly evening skin tone and refining the feel of rough texture over time. Impressively still, each bottle contains a concentrated extract of 2,000 Quinoa husks sustainably-sourced from Bolivia.

With an oil like consistency, the accompanying pipette helps making the dispensing of the oil a very easy and not so messy process. I find that I only need two-three drops for my entire face and neck.

To use the concentrate, it is recommended by Kiehls to use it after cleansing and toning but before you apply your serum and any further moisturising and night creams.  Once on the skin, it is not an oil that absorbs immediately into the skin, it takes a bit of massaging to absorb the majority of it and there is a slight tackiness feel to the skin which isn't too unpleasant and it is something you do get used too and something I am willing to put up with owing to much I love this oil.

Having used this on my skin and again, nothing ever appears on this blog without being used for some weeks, usually 4-6 sometimes longer, I love the effect it is having. There is the inclusion of AHA there has been no irritation, my skin isn't tingling or sore. Instead my skin has become smoother to the touch, the dryness on my cheek has all but been eradicated without the need to use something much more abrasive and the redness that I occasionally suffer with is seemingly a lot less red than usual.  So far Kiehls it is a massive thumbs up from me.

  20. I think Kiehls is a very reliable brand. Have tried lots of their stuff and it's very rare to get a dud. I don't think it's over-priced for the quality at all.
