Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for Everyone Let me first say answer any future questions: When can I use this? Whenever you want to wash your face. Doesn't matter if it's morning or night, if it works - works. Will this get my makeup off? Yes, very well actually. Is this bad for oily skin? No, this isn't going to make you oily or dry or whatever, if you use the proper routine to follow - you'll find that your skin will love this. Since the day I received this, I know that the Midnight Recovery Cleansing Oil will be a staple to my routine. I can't wait to see how long this bottle lasts me and I'm excited to see what other sizes will come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a great way to prep for bed As someone with oily skin, I never thought in a million years that I would be extolling the virtues of a cleansing oil. I have refused to try them in the past because I thought they would exacerbate my oil. But being that I will try anything that Kiehl's releases, and because I am a huge fan of the other Midnight Recovery products, I decided to give this a try. The texture is lightweight and luxurious, and the scent is nearly identical to the Midnight Recovery Concentrate. The trick is to apply this to dry skin and massage it prior to adding water. This does not give you the same dry, squeaky clean feeling that regular cleansers do, but that isn't a sign that it isn't actually cleansing. My skin is insanely soft after I use this, and it preps my skin for the routine to follow in a really incredible way. This is a great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Would never have thought this would be awesome to remove eye makeup I'm not a big fan of cleansing oils -- especially since ones I've tried before have clogged my pores and made me teary-eyed. But I love the Midnight Recovery Line so I was willing to give it a try. At first, I was skeptical because the oil is so lightweight, but I applied it over my eye makeup and I was amazed by how well it cleaned every bit of it off! The lavender smell is a nice touch, too! After three weeks of using it every night, I can honestly tell you that my pores are squeaky clean (as in, not clogged) and my eyes aren't all teary. As an added bonus, the cleansing oil doesn't leave a slimy residue either...just clean skin!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ABSOLUTE perfection! This is the BEST face cleanser I have ever used! I was originally leery about using an oil to wash my face since I have oily skin, but not anymore! This cleansing oil took off ALL my eye makeup with no residue and left my face hydrated and clean. I did not get that tight dry feeling after I dried it either! This is my absolute favorite new product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! Who knew that cleansing your face with an oil could be so divine? Two pumps and all my makeup is gone and my skin has the most unique feeling I've never had before. If feels clean, fresh, and like it's able to breathe more. Strange explanation I know, but I have used strictly Kiehl's products for a few years now and none of their products have made my skin feel this way. I alternate this cleanser (use at night) with the Calendula cleanser (in the morning). I follow this with the Midnight Recovery, or the Overnight Biological Peel, or the Nightly Refining Micro Peel depending on my mood. My skin has never been clearer or had better texture. I am 45 years old and live an area that gets harsh winters so I'm betting this cleansing oil with also help keep my skin from drying out. Trust me, you don't feel greasy after using this, there is no film on your skin. You just feel so clean and the smell is delicate and relaxing. I love this!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life changing I am 42 years old and have been plagued by congested skin my entire adult life. My pores are large and clog easily, both white and blackheads. I usually give any Kiehls product a try, along with any high end reputable product. And usually I get the same results. I had long resigned myself to being this way forever, and feeling self conscious about getting too up close with anyone. Well based on some reviews, I decided why not and I purchased a bottle. Within the first use I noticed a difference. Now I've used it a week and it looks like I've had the best darn facial of my life. This is amazing. Its my first review ever, im so excited to share this with others who feel self conscious over chronically congested skin. The only con is that Kiehls didn't invent this earlier! I'm going to buy several bottles. Don't ever discontinue!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from please don't ever discontinue this product Kiehls I have tried MANY cleansing oils/balms through the years and this is now my favorite. I wear a full face of makeup including waterproof mascara/eyeliner and this removes it all. I take about a pump of product into my hands, warm it up then gently massage onto eyelids until I feel my makeup melting away. It does not sting like some oils do when I peek to see if I've melted all the eye makeup off. Then I take 2 pumps of the oil for the rest of my face. It smells exactly like the Midnight Recovery Oil, but the texture is lighter. When you wash the oil off, it comes off without feeling any residue unlike some oil cleansers where you can still feel like there's a layer of oil left on your face (particularly the ones that have mineral oil. this one doesn't). I will still use my clarisonic with a non-oil cleanser like Ultra Facial Wash or Calendula face wash to get a deeper cleanse after using the Midnight Recovery Oil Cleanser. I'm not sure how long it will last me if I use about 3 pumps once a day, but honestly, I don't mind spending a little more for this excellent product vs. using the drugstore cleansing oil I've been using that is totally sub par to this. Thank you Kiehls! love this stuff!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cleansing oil! Two pumps is more than enough to remove my everyday makeup. The botanical scent is light & spa-like. I like how clean my skin feels with this oil unlike others that can sometimes leave a film. Top shelf product! Would love a travel size :) hint hint
