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 5 out of 5 by from Need a more durable container After trying a sample of Midnight Recovery, I was hooked. I LOVE Midnight Recovery — its pleasing light scent, & the soft silky feel of my skin in the morning, and I didn’t have to use much, just a drop or two. So I purchased the big bottle, 100ml, happy that that size would pass airline carry on restrictions & last me awhile. Well, the 100ml glass container was not durable enough for my constant travel lifestyle. I was SOO disappointed that my nearly full big bottle of Midnight Recovery fell on its side in a bathroom, breaking the glass & losing all that valuable product on the bathroom floor! If Midnight Recovery oil continues to be sold in glass containers, I guess my lesson is not to purchase the big bottle any more but the smaller sizes — less of a lo$$ when the container breaks!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Oil, buy it at Walmart for $5 instead of $50! It does nothing. It sits on my face like an oil and doesn’t absorb into the ski ever, even after hours and hours of waiting. It makes the skin glow while it’s on but any oil will do that. When you take it off is what matters and this product fails! It smells good which is why i have it a 2

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, worth it! I first got the Kiehl's Midnight Recovery concentrate last year and at first was skeptical. I'm in my early 30s but in the past few years I started having acne scars and some dark sports on my cheeks. I got the concentrate after reading some reviews online and won't lie - it took a little for it to start working. But wow, once it did! I felt so good seeing my skin look better and also seeing some of the scars and spots disappear. I know this sounds crazy but honestly, I'm really really happy! It is a little oily so in winter time it's great, in summer - maybe put less if you're worried. I've never seen any breakouts or issues from using it in summer, though. Highly recommend it and worth the cost!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from blemishes I received a sample and was so excited to try it. I heard a lot of positive reviews and I'm sure it is great but unfortunately it didn't work for my skin, it dried out very badly, got a lot of blemishes. Luckily the moisturizer Ultra Facial Cream is absolutely amazing and my skin is back to normal again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product I really like this product. It does wonder to my skin. Made my skin smooth and looks younger. will deff. re-purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A must Absolutely love the midnight recovery range. My skin is combination and it leaves it feeling hydrated in the morning without causing breakout. The only flaw would be it is not great to travel with. I recently took a new bottle on holiday and it had loosened and split everywhere. It is a lot of money so wouldn’t travel with again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not see any improvements I have bought this product couple of months ago and been routinely using it since then I’m hoping to see some improvements on my skin but I guess I am about to give up the hope as not only there hasn’t been any improvements I am getting more breakouts.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I love this product!!! I love this product! I have been using the midnight recovery oil and am pleased with the results. It makes my skin feel smooth and hydrated. However, I have now gone through about 4 bottles and the same thing happens every time. About half way through the bottle, the plungers stop working (does not suck up any oil) so I have to open the bottle, pull out the plunger and pour out what I need on my hand. By doing this, I wasted so much oil by pouring out too much. This product is pricey, and I would like to minimize each usage by the plunger. Kiehl’s need to offer this product with better plunger. I am disappointed that after a year of the same issues Kiehl’s continues to sell it in subpar plungers.
