Kiehls Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleansing Oil

The best part of my day is taking my makeup off and cleansing my face. I look forward to removing all the impurities and letting my skin breathe. I’ve tried lots of cleansers, but I haven’t found one that has the wow factor, especially one that is oil based. Kiehls have introduced a new addition to their Midnight Recovery range and when I say you need it, you really do NEED it.

What It Does

  • Emusifies with water to form a cleansing milk
  • Dissolves makeup and impurities
  • Will not over dry

How It Works

  • Soothes and preps the skin for toning
  • Replenishes the skin overnight leaving it soft and smooth


  • Pure botanical oils
  • Squalane
  • Evening primrose oil
  • Omega 6 fatty acids
  • Lavender essential oil

This is totally soap and sulphate free too, so you are putting 100% goodness onto your face.

I’ve been using this for a couple of weeks now and I can’t think of anything more satisfying in my night-time routine. The smell itself alone makes me feel calm and I really do look forward to using this every night. The botanical scent alone is enough to make me want this.

The essential oils in this cleanser mean that this formula is totally non drying. I love essential oils, being a total oil fiend. This product ticks a lot of boxes for me and it has fast become my new staple skincare. It leaves my face so soft after that some days I don’t even need to moisturise.

Compared to a traditional oil cleanser, this one is totally light weight. The smallest pea sized amount is enough for a full face I like to gently massage this all over my face (and neck) Makeup be gone and welcome soft skin.

If you are after a new cleanser which smells divine and helps put you to sleep, then I give this 5 stars and demand that you immediately try this.

    Gosh this sounds so lovely. One thing I hate about cleansers is when they leave your skin feeling dry afterwards. So if this leaves your skin moisturised too it sound perfect!

    I have trusted to my Dermalogica PreCleanse Oil for so long, but once I’ve use it all, I might go to Kiehls counter and try this out! Sounds so good :>

    This sounds fabulous! I’ve yet to really try much of Kiehls, I’ve tried some moisturiser and cleanser ages ago but did love it! I’m all about serums right now, they’re doing so much for my skin!

    This sounds amazing! I’m pretty happy with my Camomile one from The Body Shop for now, but once I’m finished I might give this a try.

    This sounds like something I would love and even better it is from Kiehls!
