gentle oil cleanser
Perfect makeup remover!This melts away makeup like a dream. It is comparable to Dermalogica’s Pre Cleanse only less expensive with more natural ingredients. If you’re looking for a makeup remover that will be kind to your skin I would definitely recommend this product!
great productI have dry skin and this cleanser is a godsend! It smells amazing and is beautifully hydrating while still cleaning my skin perfectly. Even works really well when removing makeup :) highly recommend.
Calming way to take off the dayThis is a beautiful oil cleanser if you love soothing, calming fragrances, like lavender. Doesn't irritate the eyes and removes makeup and sunscreen superbly. Has a nice thickness to it that is great for facial massage while you remove your makeup, too.
really goodVery surprised at how soft my skin felt after! It is very hydrating as it penetrates deeply into the skin and leaves a lovely scent afterwards
Love this oilIt’s so lovely this cleansing oil. Perfect first step fatter a long day to remove your makeup. I warm two pumps in my hands and rub all over my dry face taking lots of deep breathes inhaling all the essential oils that make up this oil. This is a good contender against dermalogica’s pre cleanse.
Love itI love this cleanser. really good for taking my makeup off
When Oils Ain't Oils!I recently participated in a Keihl's Social Soup campaign and was given a sample of this product to try. I loved it so much I bought more!
I had only recently run out of my Dermalogica pre cleansing oil and wasn't sure how this product would stack up against it however they're on equal footing performance wise.
Kiehl's has the advantage of price point with lower cost per ml of product; and I find you don't need to use as much of it to obtain the same results. Even though Keihl's does have more of a fragrance, it's not unpleasant, nor is it irritating to my sensitive skin.
The only downside is: if you buy the smaller bottles without the dispenser pump; and the bottle tips on its side, the product will leak. Therefore, I suggest replacing the lid with a dispenser pump; or putting the product in a dark coloured dispenser pump bottle.
Nice gentle CleanserI have dry, sometimes sensitive skin. This cleanser is gentle and hydrating. It rinses off really easily and leaves skin feeling soft. I've tried other products in the range and they're all pretty good too.
lovebeautiful oil cleanser which is gentle on the skin
smells beautiful and is great for my dry sensitive skin
gentle oil cleanserI use this sometimes after removing makeup when my skin feels a bit red or uncomfortable and I find it to be a very gentle oil cleanser
I have sworn off all other cleansers because of this oil!I never thought an oil would work as well as any form or liquid facial cleanser and I was completely wrong - this oil removes stubborn make-up and the smell is gorgeous - would recommend this to anyone! Give it a go, you will be surprised!
OBSESSED WITH THIS WHOLE RANGE.I am obsessed with the whole Midnight Recovery Range!
This cleansing oil melts away with ease my very full coverage make up!
I use this before my cleanser to really breakdown my makeup to ensure my skin is thoroughly cleansed!
It has the most beautiful scent and is very hydrating! The only thing I have to be careful about is keeping the oil away from my lash extensions!.
Will continue to re-purchse!!
Love it!I have started using this as the first step of a double cleanse and find it dissolves all oil and makeup. I also have the dermalogica oil pre cleanse and find this is just as amazing at a cheaper price. I have oily skin and find it really nice to use. It smells like lavender and other essential oils. Would highly recommend.
Night shower routineThis is such a beautiful cleansing oil to have in the shower. The only thing is I find it leaves a little residue on the face but because it’s the first thing on my face, it’s gone by the time I get out!
Gets the job doneSmells good and works! This removes all of my makeup, without leaving my skin feeling tight and dry. I actually really like the scent and find it relaxing to use before bed (I only use this for night time to remove makeup).
Great for drier skinThis is great for double cleansing. It breaks up makeup really effectively, and leaves my skin feeling hydrated and soft.
So cleansingI use this on and off and it is so cleansing
Good cleansing oilI love doing a double cleanse every night. This oil is great at removing face makeup and sunscreen, not sure how well this can remove my eye and lip makeup as I always remove eye and lip makeup with a makeup remover first. Washes off well without oily residue.
Have Re-Ordered This Oil Many TimesI cannot stress enough how important it is to clean EVERYTHING off at the end of the day! This oil smells lovely and the lavender helps to snooze off! Love how milky the oil becomes with water. It clears out my waterproof mascara in seconds, leaves my pores clean, hydrates my skin, You won't regret buying this oil!!!
Works great with a cotton padI really like oils , especially as a first step cleanser to remove eye makeup. In the beginning I would just use with my fingers and massage onto my makeup , and although this worked , it created a bit off a mess on my face before the makeup washed off. I found this product to be more effective when used with a cotton pad as it swipes away all the makeup very well.
However , I still find myself feeling the need to do a second cleanse with a foam type cleaner to get the "clean" skin feeling .
I also feel , the second cleanse prepares my face better for essence or toner and serums , whereas when I use just the oil, I feel like my skin is sealed and nothing else will penetrate.
So great product as first step in a two step cleansing routine.
luxuriousI have 62-year-old skin and have been using cleansing oils this winter. This product is definitely worth the money, as a little bit goes a long way. Skin is hydrated and glowing after use. I then use Midnight Recovery Serum - great combo and my skin looks great.
Not worth itI have dry-ish skin and was on the look out for an oil cleanser to remove makeup and that would also wash clean. I tried a small sample sachet of this - got 3 uses out of it. The product was ok - but not spectacular...and, to justify the price, I wanted spectacular. It removes makeup, but not as well as some of its competitors (I think NIOD's LVCE is far better at removing makeup). It does wash clean, which is good. But I found the smell overwhelming, and that was a big turn off. Overall, not worth the price tag for me.
Solid Cleansing OilI really like this because it is gentle but actually gets all of my makeup off. Makeup wipes typically burn my eyes so I was looking for something that didn't. My face feels refreshed after I wash this off and I would definitely recommend.
Love this whole range!I bought Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleansing oil because I have been using the eye and face oil. I could not be happier. I use it at night and when you pump into your hands it is clear but once you put it on your face it is a milky white. My skin is starting to show so much change and look much better. Love It.
It works!Smells good and works! This removes all of my makeup, without leaving my skin feeling tight and dry. I actually really like the scent and find it relaxing to use before bed (I only use this for night time to remove makeup).
Product I never knew I needed!I could not recommend this product enough! I received a sample and absolutely fell in-love with it! a little product goes a long way, upon application it does feel really oily/greasy however you can start to see your makeup disintegrating. You can easily use this cleansing oil on its own however, I still use my usual cleanser after for a more thorough clean. By adding this to my routine I have noticed my skin feel more refreshed, supple and hydrated.
I have combination skin, overall this product is worth the investment.
Oily goddessLove this face oil! Takes off even the harshes of makeup off - got this product as a tester, and loved it so much i now have to purchase it
Good Onegreat makeup remover which doesnt leave residue on the skin
Ultimate Makeup RemoverI hate taking my makeup off and this makes it so quick and easy! I just apply it all over my makeup and it melts everything off, when I add water and rinse with a face washer it turns to a hydrating milk and leaves my skin feeling moisturised with no trace of makeup. So much easier and better for my skin than a face wipe!
Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleansing OilI have been using this product for about ten days. When applying the product it initially feels like I am covering my face in cooking oil (unlike cooking oil, the fragrance is pleasant) and then when I add water the product foams up and the oily feeling disappears. My face feels cleansed and moisturised after use. I am 60+ with hormonal/stress issues which appear on my face and even though I have not been using this product for very long I feel my face is in better condition now than previously.
Removes everything so easyLove this product. So easy to use and it removes all make up. Leaves my skin feeling so refreshed once make up has been removed. Couldn't live without this product. Worth every cent as you only need a few drops.
Smells beautiful and makes my skin feel nourishedI bought this after my skin’s texture got so bad. It took down the redness and dryness without making it oily. I have sensitive skin and flakes if anything is too harsh and this was perfect. The scent is also wonderful!
Great for sensitive skinI am now on my second bottle of the Midnight Recovery Cleansing oil and find the cleanser to be the most non-irritating cleanser for my sensitive, sometimes-dry, sometimes-pimple prone skin. The only downfall with this product is that I am using it up more quickly than my regular cleansers in the past since it feels like you need 2-3 good pumps of the bottle to properly cleanse your skin instead of the usual 1 pump. However, still a great product and thoroughly recommended for those with ultra-sensitive skin!
A must have!I'm one of those - hard to please when it comes to skincare. I've been using Kiehls products for 5 years now - some WOW me as they transform my skin like no other brand would do! But this oil cleanser is something!! I was after a sample at first, rang up the lovely Patrick from Kiehls DJ to pick up one. Long story short I ended up buying the full size at Chardstone. My god! It is worth every dollar! Been using it at PM only before bed with Kiehls vitamin C and of coz finish off with the midnight recovery oil. The 1st night I used it I could not believe the instant result the very next morning! My skin was glowing!!!! Radiant, soft and hydrated. This product is really something. Please don't be alarm with the fact that it's an oil cleanser. There's nothing nasty about this cleanser. You will not regret buying this!
Amazing Oil Cleanser !!I can't recommend this product enough , I am 64and have been getting a lot of compliments on my skin since using Kiehls botanical cleansing oil it removes my eye makeup and long lasting lipstick .It leaves my skin feeling very clean and comfortable. I cleanse twice at night then follow with Midnight Recovery Concentrate .I had a very sensitive red skin 12 mths ago so started using Kielhs ultra facial cleanser and ultra facial cream .Those two products made a huge difference to my skin . So have stayed with Kiehls and just love the smell and feel of the Botanical range .Love Love Love them !!
