Frequently Asked Questions

Does this product contain any nut oils?

The formula contains an ingredient derived from coconuts. According to the FDA, coconuts are considered tree nuts although they are not typically restricted in diets of people with tree nut allergies.

Is it safe to use during pregnancy?

While every ingredient we use in our products is evaluated for safety, we do not specifically test our products on women who are pregnant or nursing. Kiehl’s ensures there is a substantial information supporting the safety of our products when used as directed by consumers. However, as there could be certain ingredients that physicians may not recommend for use during pregnancy and nursing, we always recommend that you discuss this with your physician and follow their advice.

Can this product be used for someone with oily or combination skin?

Yes, as it can be quite helpful in rebalancing the natural oils of an oilier skin type, as these skin types are often dehydrated or stripped of their natural oils when using strong acne products. The skin in these cases reacts by over-producing natural sebum, resulting in an even oilier surface and/or continued breakout. The application of our Midnight Recovery Concentrate a few times a week in these cases could help prevent this kind of imbalance "over adjustment" from happening. The formula is non-comedogenic/ non-acnegenic. This means it has been demonstrated not to clog pores.

Can face oil replace moisturizer?

No, because they each deliver different results. A moisturizer hydrates skin, helps strengthen the moisture barrier and locks in the powerful benefits of a concentrated serum and a face oil like, Midnight Recovery Concentrate. We recommend using any of our Kiehl’s face moisturizer on top of this product, to enhance or address any additional concerns.

Do I put Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate before or after Midnight Recovery Concentrate?

For layering, it is best to treat Midnight Recovery Concentrate as the "moisturizer" step, which means that we should recommend that it be applied on top of a serum or a Dermatologist Solutions treatment product, like Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate.

What is a botanical oils vs. essential oil?

Midnight Recovery Concentrate is formulated with both Botanical and Essential oils. Botanical oils are oils obtained from plants that are fatty, dense and non-volatile, such as olive and sweet almond oil. Such plants contain a significant amount of proteins, vitamins and skin compatible lipids like squalane. Botanical oils strengthen the skin barrier, to prevent skin from water loss and diminish penetration of environmental aggressors, while essential oils protect the skin from oxidative and environmental stress. An essential oil is a concentrated liquid containing volatile aroma compounds from plants, which are called aromatic herbs or aromatic plants. The term "essential" indicates that the oil carries the distinctive scent (essence) of the plant. Most commonly, the essence is extracted from the plant using a technique called steam distillation. Naturally cultivated and steam-distilled, these pure oils are extracted from natural sources.

What are the benefits of the main botanical oils and the main essential oils in Midnight Recovery Concentrate?

Squalane helps restore skin’s natural moisture balance to keep it extra soft and supple. Evening Primrose Oil is known to help maintain skin hydration and elasticity. Sunflower oil is a good source of essential fatty acids, this oil adds a protective barrier and helps the skin to retain moisture and resist infection. Lavender Oil helps to stimulate skin’s repair functions and improve skin tone creating a brighter more radiant look. Rosemary Essential Oil helps to retain moisture, improve and brighten skin tone and relax the muscles. Geranium Essential Oil helps to detoxify and enhance circulation while balancing the skin’s oil production. Rose Essential Oil helps to improve skin-tone and to soften and condition the skin while combatting environmental damage and helps to replenish skin oils.

What is the difference between Squalane and Squalene and where does Squalene come from?

They are very close to each other in molecular structure as well as in benefits (they both help improve and protect the skin’s natural lipid barrier – and they both are also naturally appropriate for sensitive skin), and the skin does produce both of them naturally in its sebum. Squalene also provides natural antioxidant benefits. However, Squalene cannot be re-produced outside of the skin, whereas Squalane IS naturally produced outside.

Can it be safely used in the day time? Is there a specific ingredient within the product that can only be used at night?

Midnight Recovery Concentrate may also be used during the day, if desired. Although, it is more ideal for use at nighttime, as we formulated it to help the skin work more effectively during its nightly repairing functions (in the day time, more protective functions are needed). And no, there is no specific ingredient that makes it only useable at night.

Does this have any anti-aging benefits?

Yes, it replenishes overnight to smooth skin’s texture, boost radiance and improve fine lines and wrinkles.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Use it everyday This is a fantastic product. I have been using it every night for a number of years, and I am very happy with my skin. I frequently get comments that my skin is very good for my age, and when I look at peers I agree! I use many of Kiel’s products and would highly recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Midnight Recovery Oil I tried it from a friend and really liked it from the start. Then I went to buy it and I like it even more now, I just love how it makes my skin shine.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Different from the sample I had received a sample product with another purchase at a local beauty retailer. The free sample came in a small plastic container, and I IMMEDIATELY fell in love. I loved the relaxing smell and didn’t have any negative effects from use. So I bought a full sized version of it from the Kiehls website. The full sized version has an almost rubbery smell to it, so much so that it almost conceals any scent of lavender. I’m quite disappointed in this difference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect evening serum I was using this for a year non stop. Skin in the morning was plumped and after a while nice even skin tone. Trying something else as after a year didn’t see any more changes, that’s just my skin once it gets used one product then I need break for a while. Definitely will be going back after I finish current serum xxx Thank you
