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.

Concealers You NEED

Dark circles are always problematic for women. We spend years searching for the ‘right’ concealer. After much testing and trialling, I can finally tell you these 5 products actually work and I’ll tell you exactly why I LOVE them!

Concealer Flatlay 1

Concealer Flatlay 3

1. Tarte Aquacealer

This concealer is fairly new to the Tarte line, and I love it so much! It’s light, creamy texture ensures nice, even coverage and it’s easy to blend. I don’t like working with concealers that dry too quickly and I would describe this as a ‘wet’ formula. If like me, you use a beauty blender – this goes hand in hand with it. I like the sponge applicator on it too because its also perfect for highlighting! Buy right here.

2. Mac Pro Long Wear

I love using this as an under eye and lower eye base for eye shadows. It’s great for long duration because it’s very long lasting and doesn’t crease if set properly. The formula is much drier so you do need to be quick with application with this. It’s not my most favourite formula, but you NEED it to pro long wear. Hence the name! Buy right here.

3. Urban Decy Naked Skin Concealer

This concealer is great for a highlighted look and it’s perfect for sculpting too. The doe foot applicator makes it easy to apply and the formula is long lasting. It is creamy and light with medium coverage which is completely buildable. This a staple for many and it’s so light that you can layer it with other concealers. Buy right here.

4. Maybelline FIT ME

A true dupe for the Nars creamy concealer. I love the gel formula and this is a concealer I continue to purchase time and time again. You can read my full review right here.

5. Maybelline Eraser Eye

The mother of all drugstore concealers – I have mentioned this time and time again. I’m easily on my 10th tube now. How crazy is that! The sponge applicator is really quick and easy to apply especially if you are getting ready in a rush (which is me 85% of the time) The only downside is that it only comes in 2 colours, and I feel this range should be extended. There’s a lot of people who love this, and Maybelline could benefit from this. Buy here.
