This is probably my favorite Kiehl's product. I use it every night, and I wake up with glowing skin
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft skin! I was hesitant about using an oil on my acne prone face BUT WOW. My acne has gone down! My face is soft in the morning and always looks like a had a great night's sleep. I also LOVE the Avocado eye cream. Very hydrating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this face oil!! I received a sample of this product and have been so happy with it! I have oily to normal skin and had never used oils before. I'm so glad they sent this for me to try! I use it every night now. I even purchased the under eye cream which works wonders as well. Now I'm here to buy a larger size oil. I might just get the cleansing oil too. Your samples are working for me Keihl's! Thank you! <3

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Look forward to night routine Absolutely love the smell of this product and the way my skin looks in the morning, the only down side is the smell starts to turn once you reach the bottom of the bottle. But has not stopped me in repurchasing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Healing I received this as a sample and wasn't really interested in putting oil on my face but decided to try it just where my cpap mask goes since I break out a lot in those areas. My breakouts were literally gone the next morning. I have only used when I get an actual breakout and have been so happy to see that every single time it heals the breakout over night! I will definitely be purchasing this when my sample runs out. I love the smell as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Facial Oil— use it correctly! The best light weight facial oil ever. A bottle lasts forever! I use it at night after a shower or washing my face. You need to be mindful of how much you use and when you use it. Night time is best to let it absorb into the skin and do its job. I’ve seen people wear this during the day and complain that its too oily. I literally use 6 drops at night: 2 on my forehead, 1 for each cheek, 2 for my beard/chin. Thats all. Has a great texture and pleasant smell.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No significant difference after using it for 18 months I've been using this pretty much every night for the past 18 months. I'm sad to say that my dedication to including this into my nightly routine resulted in very little improvement to my skin. When I first started using it, I did like it for leaving my face soft upon application and still somewhat moisturized in the morning. But all the benefits that Kiehls claim that this bottle has, it did not delivery. It just does not do any of what it says. I don't understand it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from My skin Did not like this I got this product from Nordstrom used it exactly as directed. Within a few days my skin started to break out. I have Really dry skin. I stuck with it for 3 weeks because I know new products sometimes mess with your PH but my skin was not looking any better. So disappointed, I’l this is going back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only product that controlled my cystic acne. I had really bad cystic acne due to my stress level about 3 years ago. Used a lot of acne related products, changed my diet, cleansed with sterilized towel every night, and still my acne persisted. I first bought this oil in 2017 after hearing Danielle from the Elvis Duran Show boasting about how her face glows from using it one morning. To my surprise, it took away my acne and it keeps my face tamed for the past 3 years. A little goes a long way. So far, I've only used up 2 of the 1.7 oz bottles. Please try this if you have adult acne problems. It might give your face a glow in the morning too!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from No sense I used this for over 4 months, I didn't feel like it worked, so I tried to order it again, but so far, it didn't really work, so disappoint

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite oil! I don’t understand some of the bad reviews because, I’m obsessed with this oil! I love the smell, the texture, and it ALWAYS leaves my skin soft and moisturized. I see the effects immediately after I apply it. One thing I do to make the application smoother is I mix it with my Night cream (similar to a booster for my moisturizer). The mixture goes on really smooth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Was skeptical of The sample but really loved it I was given a sample but never liked the idea of putting oil on my skin. I love that it’s scents were all natural. Lavender, jasmine, citrons, So nice before bed. The first time used it I just washed it off, it felt so greasy. I had a good feeling about it so I tried it again the next night; you only need a little. It’s greasy at first but in 5 min it’s all absorbed leaving your face feeling healthy and cared for. It didn’t make my pillow all greasy either. The scent is lovey, not strong and all natural. The only way to do it. I’ll definitely will be buying a bottle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Oil I love this product. It makes my skin smooth and the smell is very calming, at least for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Calming Part of My Nighttime Routine I've been using this for at least 6 months and find the smell soothing and the product to be hydrating to my skin. I apply this lightly each night after washing my face and feel relaxed when going to bed and more hydrated in the morning than before I started using it. Kiehl's products are always pricy but this one is definitely worth it for me. I love the smell and really enjoy including this in my nighttime routine. Overall, a great purchase!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Overpowering smell Midnight recovery , though it might work , the overwhelming smell of lavender is gagging This should be offered scent free . Not everyone believes the strong smell of lavender is soothing I purchased this myself unknowing that lavender would Be so intense

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst Purchase Ever Simply doesn’t do a thing. Switched over to Aesop product line. Vastly superior. This is both expensive and lacks any real results. #neveragain

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a good purchase This product is beyond to oily. I did not think it was going to be as oily as it is. I thought this was going to be a miracle oil like people claim in the reviews, and it's not! Way to pricey for oil like this. It seems like the ingredients provide barely any results if any. I actually used this oil for 12 weeks straight and didn't see any other results then what I already had. Very upset that I continued to purchase this item and didn't receive anything that I paid for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holy Grail Product The Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Oil is my all time favorite skin product. It is that one item that I use every. single. day. My skin gets very dry in the winter time and this leaves me feeling moisturized and fresh without feeling heavy. There has been a noticeable improvement in my skin and I've used this product religiously for two years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THIS IS THE ULTIMATE MUST I LOVE this face oil. My skin is just soaking in all the wonderful elements this product has. I love the texture the smell of it and most of all what it does to my face. It really makes it smooth and my wrinkles and spots are fading. This is just my essential and MUST.
Date published: 2020-05-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holy Grail This is the best oil out there. I’ve been using it for 8yrs. My skin is very sensitive and this product helps to reduce inflammation. I have used Tatcha, La Mar, and I always come back to the Midnight Recovery line. I use it daily with the moisturizer. My skin is so much better it’s convinced my sister, my mom, and sister in laws to use this line from Kiehls. My husband starting using it as well. Also no one can guess my age.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Anything but calming This is the product that made me realize how irritating fragrant oils and perfumes can be on my face. I went through a whole bottle, ordered another Midnight Recovery Oil and hoped that this would help with my red, sensitive cheeks. I decided to take out one Kiehl’s product at a time as they are the only products I use, started with this oil and after a week— No irritation! I realized that this is the only product I use with fragrance from Kiehl’s and it has a lot. Otherwise I find the fragrance really calming but it does not work well on my skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE This stuff is AWESOME. I got it as a gift with the midnight eye cream and I love the way my skin looks and feels the next morning, and it’s has a VERY soft scent of lavender that’s nice before bed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magic in a bottle I adore this oil. Having tried facial oils from many brands, I always go back to this one. I have super acne-prone, sensitive, and combination skin. This oil helps to moisturize and does not break me out. I also have the type of skin that shows when I don't get enough sleep, but this oil does the magic. It helps to revitalize my skin even when I only sleep for 4 hours a night. This does not only keep my skin moist but also help to calm the pimples down due to several antibacterial oils in it. The texture is lightweight enough but still make your skin dewy. My boyfriend loves it too. He's been on Accutane to treat his body acne. The medicine dries his skin out to the extreme. This oil keeps his skin hydrated! Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a Surprise This evening routine of applying Midnight Recovery Oil results in skin that is so smooth and soft by morning. After one month of this routine, your skin is soft, large pores are gone, and a feeling of elasticity of the skin. I always replenish to keep this soft skin ready for summer's heat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Kiehls serum I really love this serum, it has a very pleasing scent (very light citrus and earthy). I'm someone with sensitive skin and it doesn't effect me at all with the scent. This serum has really brightened my skin and helped take care of dark spots. But for the price point it doesn't work magic like or serums I've tried with the same high price.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Slightly Disappointed I am like many other users, I received a sample of this and liked it even just after one use. The texture was nice, it smelled good and I was in need of a new overnight serum. So I bought the full size and have been using it every night for the last three weeks and I do not see a difference at all. I follow the instructions exactly and I wake up in the morning and I don't see a change at all. I was rally excited about this product, especially since I haven't worn makeup for weeks now, thought this would be a great opportunity to get my skin glowing and fresh but sadly I do not feel that way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best part of my evening routine Putting on my recovery concentrate is my favorite part of my evening routine. It feels luxurious without being too heavy for my acne prone combination skin. The best part? It smells heavenly. It's like instant relaxation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite item from Kiehl's I love this product so much, it does a world of difference to my skin in overnight. I tried the sample first and immediately noticed a difference in my skin's complexion in just one night. I frequently would get blemishes and impurities but with this product, I can notice a visible difference in my skin's recovery over night. I'm hooked! I use each night in conjunction with Kiehl's facewash, toner and the daily revitalizing oil during the day.
