Review: Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Oil

If you’re a beauty fan, then there’s absolutely no way that you could have escaped the hype around Kiehl’s over the past couple of years. Founded back in 1851, it’s a business that has well and truly stood the test of time, and it’s become a firm favourite with lovers of luxury skincare.

Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Oil is very much the star of the show, and it’s considered a must-have right now. But is it right for you? Let’s take a look at what you need to know…

What is it?

Midnight Recovery is a luxurious, lavender scented oil that’s designed to rejuvenate your skin and leave it feeling refreshed and replenished by the very next morning.

You can use it on its own, or if you don’t like to apply oils direct to your skin, you can add a little to your usual moisturiser.

Who is it suitable for?

Midnight Recovery Oil is a versatile product, and it’s suitable for lots of different skin types, though is probably best for dry and combination skins. If you want a little extra moisture but you don’t want to be left feel greasy, then try just a drop or two to start with.

Is it good value for money?

Midnight Oil isn’t the kind of item that’s going to be your first choice if you’re working on a tight budget. It comes in at £38 for 30ml. That said though, a little goes a very long way. I’ve been applying mine most nights since Christmas, and I expect that there’s enough left to last me almost all of the year.

So whilst you’ll have to fork out a pretty significant amount of money, it can go a long way. It’s worth noting too that Kiehl’s offers a 28-day money back guarantee, so you can buy with confidence and know that if it isn’t right for you, there’s something that you can do about it.

All things considered, this is definitely great value for money!

What are the results?

When I first used Midnight Recovery, I was absolutely convinced that it was just too rich for my skin. It felt extremely oily, and I was worried that I was going to wake up the next day and have to deal with breakouts and spots.

In the end though, I was very pleasantly surprised! I woke up to find my skin feeling super soft and hydrated, and the effects were visible straightaway. Needless to say, I’m definitely a convert. I apply Midnight Oil almost every evening now, and it’s become a much loved part of my skincare routine.

If you want to bring a little extra luxury and pampering into your routine, then this is an excellent product to try.

All things considered, I’d rate Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Oil 10/10.
