Pleasantly Surprised

Pros: absorbs well, calming, smells great
Cons: oily upon first application
My favorite thing about this product is: My skin wasnt greasy when I woke up this morning.
I received a sample of the Midnight Recovery Oil while at Kiehls in Chicago this weekend. Anyone who lives here knows its been disgustingly humid lately. Ive been waking up with greasy skin every morning. Last night I applied a few drops of the MRO in place of my usual oil and moisturizer. First off, a little goes a long way. It was very oily and moisturizing. A couple drops is sufficient, this sample is going to last me forever. I was actually apprehensive about how oily my face would be this morning. Surprisingly it was not oily AT ALL! This morning my skin is incredibly soft and not one bit shiny. Beyond that I had some irritation on my cheekbones from Retinol use that this morning is as calm as if it were never there. The lavender scent is very relaxing and perfect for nighttime. Overall I loved my first experience with this oil. Im going to use it tonight over my Retinol and see if it prevents any irritation. If it continues to perform as well as it did last night I will definitely purchase a full size bottle when my sample runs out. Also, the price is incredible compared the other high-end oils.

The best!

This is the best oil I have but that is because this is the only oil I have ever tried. I never looked back after trying this one. My skin feels regenerated in the morning and the makeup products I put glide smoothly. I am bery fortunate and thankful that the first ever skin care product splurge I did is with Kiehls because I found my holy grail with this.

a staple in my night routine

my love for kiehls started 2 years ago and this was my first kiehls product because of the good reviews and currently on my second bottle but now im using from facial wash toner brightening serum eye creams masks moisturizers and sunscreen but if you are contemplating which product to try first i suggest tohave this one. it may seem expensive but this will last you for a year all you need is 1 to2 drops. so worth ityou will notice how it will give you the beautiful glow in the morning and your skin will look so hydrated . but what i like most about this one it keeps any pimple at bay. if ihave one i still keep on using it and the following morning it will lessen the inflammation and as for my case mostly it will be gone aftr 3daysmax!!! definitely a staple in my night routine

Believe the hype. It is real.

I’ve been curious about this product for the longest time, but found it so expensive. I finally bit the bullet recently and bought it, and I don’t regret it at all! I’ve been using it for about 4 weeks now and my skin feels great. I brought it along with me to London and it kept my skin hydrated and so radiant. My skin wasn’t greasy in the morning and it looked plump and hydrated. I love the packaging of this, too! It’s a great calming scent too. After putting 2-3 drops on my palm, spread it around, put it up to my nose and take a deep breath, then apply all over. I think it helped me sleep better!

If I had to buy just one oil/serum, this would be it!

I first bought this five years ago, and this has never left my skincare kit ever since! While I was initially very skeptical of using oil in my regimen due to my already oily skin, I went ahead and incorporated it during my nighttime routine. As prescribed, I put 2-3 drops warmed it in between my palms, and my initial impression was that the scent was lovely! Perfect for sleeping, as the lavender fragrance is so calming. I used it alone, and when I woke up the next morning, I was surprised that my skin wasn't as oily as expected, and felt very soft. Over time, I noticed that some redness/unevenness in my skin tone started fading away, my skin was so much smoother and softer, and that my oiliness became more manageable. I'd also say it's a relatively versatile product, since you can combine it with serums and moisturizers for times when you need a bit more supercharging for your skin (even during the daytime). I've combined this product with the Aesop Parsley Seed serum, and it's served as a great power moisturizer for when I'm pressed for time, or if my skin is being particularly sensitive. Overall, it might seem like a high price point, but it lasts quite a while. A bottle, with daily use, typically lasts me at least ten months. It's definitely my favorite product in the entire Kiehl's line, and I would purchase this over and over again!
