Did You Know?
The delicate skin around the eye is actually thinner than the rest of the skin on your face and is often the first place to look tired or show fine lines. Using Midnight Recovery Eye at night – when your skin is naturally repairing and recovering from daily aggressors – helps enhance skin’s restorative process for well-rested, younger-looking eyes by morning.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed This product did not reduce the dark area under my eyes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent eye cream Just a little goes a long way. Under eye darkness appears diminished. Very nice texture. I really like it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expensive, but great results I first received this as a free sample. After using the sample, I can’t say I experienced results right away. But it did feel good and the area under my eye felt moisturized. So I looked up the product and found all these amazing reviews. So I decided to order a bottle and give it a shot. I’m so glad I did. After just about a week or so, I started noticing results. Now it’s not going to remove dark circle completely, but it certainly helps reduce them. My only complaint is that it is so expensive

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works pretty well, feels great I have always had really deep bags and dark under eye circles just due to genetics. The past few years they have gotten worst despite the fact that I eat healthy, get enough sleep, wear sunscreen every day, and drink a lot of water, and I'm not 30 yet. I have to take a lot of steps and use heavy-duty concealer and you could still see the bags somewhat. I bought this b/c I heard some good things and I am pleased with the results. My dark circles are still there but they are less severe and easier to conceal. The area feels very soft and supple and moisturized when I use it. Will buy again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It doesn't work! I have been using this product and other Kiehl's eye products for day and night also wrinkle but it doesn't help my eye bags getting better!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Funny story, I received a sample of product at Nordstrom’s, but I never labeled it, and forgot it was an eye Crema! I had started using this cream as a MOISTURIZER for my whole face due to the fact I didn’t realize it was an eye cream, I was astonished that it worked well on my sensitive face, and caused no irritation. After 2 weeks of using my sample daily, It had significantly changed my face! My face became brighter, the fine lines in my forehead were diminished, and my face was soft, but not oily, and had a nice Matte glow to it. I went to Nordstrom to find the product I had been using to find that I had been using an eye cream the whole time! I don’t even care, this works great for my whole face! And I will continue to use it for an overall moisturizer. I do however wish they would make a moisturizer in this line. Amazing stuff right here!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not help my puffy eyes I bought a whole set of eye treatment creams and it did not help with my puffiness. My eyes still looks the same. I am in need of a product that will help my puffiness go away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally Found The Dark Circle Corrector I have tried MANY products for dark circles under the eye. This problem is hereditary and environmental for me - so this has been an exhausting (which doesn't help my eye problems) and expensive search for the perfect treatment. I came across this product over a month ago and Oh how I wish I would have taken before and after pictures! This product is amazing. I use it only at bedtime, the scent is wonderfully aromatherapy, the feel (on those delicate under eyes) is also therapeutic, and in less than 2 weeks of routine use my dark circles had significantly diminished - my friends even noticed! I recommend this to anyone who is troubled with under eye circles, it truly does work! No more foundation cover-up on these under eyes!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Working I purchased this product two weeks ago. I am currently going through the change and can’t sleep. I have bags and dark circles. I was hoping based on the reviews this would work for me. I haven’t seen any changes or improvements at all. Very disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed I had very high hopes for this product based on the reviews but I did not like it at all. I used at night and in the morning I would wake up with dark circles, puffiness and dryness.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Been using this product regularly for three months and noticed no difference. I did exactly what the Kiel’s associate instructed. I like Kiehl products, but I was disappointed with this one, especially because of the price tag.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't work for me Tried this product regularly for three months and noticed no difference on my dark circles. It almost seemed to dry out the skin in the corner of my eyes. I usually love Kiehl products, but I was disappointed with this one, especially because of the price tag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Under Eye Product Ever!! I absolutely love the Midnight Recovery Eye! I have only been using this product for about two weeks and I have already seen drastic differences in the darkness of my under eyes and amazing improvements in the texture of them as well. I have tried countless eye creams and nothing works quite like this!! Definitely repurchasing and don't think I will ever go back!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not my type I am very pleased with Kiehls products that I have used and those that have worked for me however, the Midnight Eye Recovery just did not work. I realize not every product is for everyone and this one was not for me. I used the Eye Alert which worked well and did exactly what was stated on the package. So sad to hear you discontinued. I've tried all the eye product lines that you have either from samples or actual purchases and the Eye Alert worked best for me I used it for better that a year. I used the Midnight Eye Recovery for six months and did not notice any difference in my eyes like the Eye Alert. I do believe the difference is the formulas in each as to why one worked better for me that the other.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite eye cream This leaves my under eyes moisturizer and decreases dark circles. The tube lasts much longer than I expected it would (~1 year using 2-4 nights a week). I now use this nightly and will repurchase!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Start to my Eye Routine I have terrible dark circles and I have tried so many eye creams, but this is my absolute favorite because of the texture and the moisture it delivers. I find a lot of eye creams are almost too sunscreen-like where they add a ton of shine to my dark under eye area and almost makes it more noticeable because it will highlight the area. This nourishes the under-eye and almost gives it a matte-finish. I use this as a base and let it absorb then I put the Age Defender Eye Repair for even more moisture and treatment. I've used this for over three years and I will never stop!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE this stuff! It's so moisturizing and has such a nice texture and faint lavender scent. My eye area feels much better moisturized with this product than with others I've tried, and the puffiness and dark circles under my eyes have been reduced. I was surprised to read any negative reviews because I like it so much that I put it on automatic reorder.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wish It Worked Not entirely sure why it doesn't work for me, but I have been using it daily for the past 6 weeks and it has done nothing for the dark circles under my eyes nor the puffiness. I had wanted it to work so badly but maybe it is just not the product for me
Date published: 2018-03-30
Rated 3 out of 5 by from No Noticeable Difference I love a lot of Kiehls products, and I was excited to try this because I have been plagued by dark circles under my eyes and occasional eye puffiness. I love the ease and smell of this product, but I've found it does very little to actually help the appearance of dark circles under my eyes. I still use it because I figure it can't hurt, and I'm hoping for eventual results, but after 3 weeks it's only reduced puffiness, not done anything for my dark bags :(

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Added puffiness I haven’t used this product all that much, as the first time I used it, the next morning my eyes we significantly more puffy than they’ve ever been. Not sure if there’s something in it that doesn’t work with my skin or if it’s too aggressive, but I’ll probably avoid this in the future. Giving it another shot now after 6 months since I originally tried it is giving similar results. Hoping repeat applications changes something.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Midnight recovery I have been using this product for about 6 weeks now twice a day and I have puffy bags under my eyes and still haven’t seen a difference. Any advice? If it worked better I would recommend it to everyone!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It didn’t help with my dark circles My husband got me this the packaging is nice and the tube is perfect and all but I’ve been using this for about a month now and I have NOT seen any changes AT ALL with my dark circles.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This product is a waste of money. I own several Kiehls products, which I mostly recommend. This product, however, does not work whatsoever and is so expensive! I cannot believe I wasted so much money on this. The fragrance is appealing, but it has had no effect after 3 weeks of use. I totally believed in Kiehls products, which is why I decided to spend so much on one product. Now, I’m not sure if I will be experimenting with their other products. I was going to purchase Kiehls eye cream for daily use, but I doubt it will work either.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product is not for sensitive eyes. I only tap it around my orbital bone ( no where near my eyeball) and it still stings. The results are good but beware of sensitive eyes because it has a very strong fragrance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything you need to know... I've had dark circles all my life and while they are mostly hereditary, this product has really helped diminish the appearance. First things first, I'm 20, combo skin (mostly dry), and live an active lifestyle with a (somewhat) balanced diet. (I've mentioned this to help people compare their skin types/lifestyle with mine) This product has helped in more ways than one. - significantly diminished dark circles - any fine lines are GONE - under-eyes are well moisturized - can see results by morning - no milia bumps - works well under makeup The texture is a bit thick and I love the smell but if you are sensitive to smells just prepare yourself. I would definitely try to look past it if you are in need of an AMAZING eye cream. For someone with dry skin I love the texture but oily folks may want to go in with a lighter hand. Even-so, a very small amount of this product goes such a long way, it lasts forever. For best results I use it morning and night. I find it to work well under makeup, that may be due to my dryer skin but if so I would suggest going in with light hand and allowing it to sink in for around 30 minutes or so. I saw significant results around the 2 month mark. I looked back at an old picture and instantly noticed all the fine lines around my eyes were completely gone, and the darkness was so much less intense. My sister noticed quickly as well. Before, when I would go bare faced I would get comments like "Are you feeling okay?' or "you look sick" or even "did someone hit you?". Now I look far more normal. I feel much more confident going out without my makeup on and I hardly ever get asked those questions anymore, specifically the ones about me being sick or getting hit lol. My sister says I don't look sickly anymore just a little tired. She comments on my under-eyes whenever I go without makeup talking about how much better they look. My first tube lasted me over a year and I just repurchased it. For how long it lasts the price is well justified, if anything I'm surprised it doesn't cost more for how well it works. I hope this helps anyone who was considering buying this. If you were on the fence I say go for it, its well worth the money. (Also I highly highly suggest taking before and after pictures to see your results, it will really shock you!)
