Review: Kiehls – Midnight Recovery Oil

Brand: Kiehls

Skin type: Combination

How to use: Apply 2-3 drops of Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate on cleansed skin. Gently press fingertips to cheeks, forehead, and chin to evenly distribute the application before gently massaging it into the skin. Can be worn alone or under moisturiser. I always apply alone I always wake up glowing so never feel the need to use anything with it.

Ingredients: Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Dicaprylyl Carbonate, Squalane, Rosa Canina Fruit Oil, Evening Primrose Oil, Jojoba Seed Oil, Coriander Seed Oil, Tocopherol, Lavender Oil, Pelargonium Graveolens Flower Oil, Linalool, Rosemary Leaf Oil, Citronellol, Geraniol, Lavandula Hybrida Oil, Cucumber Fruit Extract, Turmeric Root Extract, Limonene, Citral, Sclareolide, Rose Flower Oil, Jasmine Extract, Sunflower Seed Oil

How does it smell? Delicious lavender scent. Probably helps you unwind at night, considering this is night time elixir.

How does it feel? It’s a rich but light fluid, it feels very silky.

Cost? £38 for 30ml

How long did I test for? 6 months, not every night but at least twice a week. This past week I have used it every night.

What I liked? First of all, 99.8% of the ingredients are naturally derived, which is a pretty hard thing to achieve so I am super impressed. So, the active ingredients here are evening primrose oil, lavender essential oil and squalene. Primrose oil is high in essential fatty acids which are used by the body to build up cell membranes and hormones. Hence, this oil can provide security for the skins barrier and increase the skins radiance. Lavender oil has various ways in which it can help make the skin look calm. It soothes inflamed/irritated skin creating a more even tone. And squalene is amazing for retaining the skins natural moisture. I can safely say I see the effects of these properties!

What I disliked? Nothing, my skin feels so hydrated right after and all day after I use it.

Would I buy again? 100% – I can see this as a part of my OG collection.

Where to buy?, Selfridges, House of Fraser, Sephora, Debenhams
