Most Helpful Positive Review Smooth Crystal Clear Acne Free Skin
I got a deluxe sample about a week ago, I'm always interested in Kiehl's since every product I have tried I love! so of course this MRC looked like something I wanted to try, the only problem is I have very acne prone skin so using an OIL scares me!. As I have gotten older I realize that using products that are all specifically for acne dry out my skin so much that it exacerbates and makes my eruptions more red and inflamed. After reading all reviews of this product and hearing that some people had some skin clearing benefits I did some research, Lavender is one of the few essential oils that can be applied to the skin directly, it not only has soothing & anti-inflammatory properties but in fact it has antibacterial properties!! this was enough research for me to give the oil a try. After the first application I noticed the oil absorbed quickly, and smelled amazing, in the morning I immediately noticed my acne was less red and irritated. By day 3 clear smooth skin is on the way!! this stuff is amazing. On day 4 I went online since the friends and family discount was available and got the huge 1.7oz bottle (this will last forever). A little goes along way, and I see some reviews where people say it is super greasy, the trick to this is less is more, I put one drop on each cheek and massage all over each half of my face and a 1/2 drop on each my chin and forehead, take the time to massage it in so you have great distribution. I cant believe I am acne free!! I know some people with oily skin may be scared of an OIL but try it it is worth it! I like it for that fact only I have yet to notice any line reducing benefits but maybe that takes more time to show with continued use and I'm only on week 1. This is the best product in the Kiehl's line I have tried so far.
Most Helpful Critical Review Seemed to make me break out
I liked this at first, but after a few days I noticed by pores seemed clogged and I was breaking out. Also, while it smelled good in the bottle, it didn't seem to mix with the chemistry of my skin well and it smelled weird on me. Maybe it works for some people, but not all, so I'd recommend trying a sample first. I took mine back after two weeks.

So I received this as a sample, and I'm so happy I did cause it's one of my favorite nighttime skincare products. I was a bit worried cause usually oils make my skin breakout, but not this! I use it three times a week, and it's absolutely amazing! It leaves my skin so smooth and refreshed. And it smells Amazing! Literally like I just left the spa.
I'll definitely buy this once my sample is finished. Also a little goes a long way, my sample has lasted me for a good three weeks so far. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
No diference yet. Leaves skin SUPER soft
Trizia from TX
I have been using every night at bedtime for two weeks now. Have not noticed any difference yet but I wake up with super soft skin. Does not irritate my skin, o the contrary, it leaves my skin feeling very good and the smell is spa like. Sort of like incense. I am 35 years old and my skin just started showing signs of aging. I will continue use and hopefully will start seeing this product work.
Description on point
Glendaaa from California
It does exactly what it says it does! I love it. No weird smell, perfect consistency, noticeable results. Definitely repurchasing.
my favorite product
julia from missouri
this is the best serum/concentrate ever! makes my skin so soft just seconds after using and even softer when i wake up in the morning. love this and will be buying again!
Shelly from Riverside, CA
Love this oil so much! I had gotten a sample of it & loved it so much that I bought the full size! It really helped my texture (I get little bumps here & there). Helps smooth out my skin, definitely recommend!
Amazing!! Soft skin & heals acne
Amanda M. from California
I don't typically write reviews of products but I have been so happy with this one I figured I would share! I've been using this for about a year and I love the way it makes my skin feel. In the morning my skin is so soft and plump. I have natural redness and it is basically gone in the morning. Lately I've been having a little cystic acne due to hormone changes and I haven't used any acne medicine on it but still use this at night. It significantly reduces my acne by morning and helps it heal tremendously faster while soothing my skin. A little goes a long way and will last a long time. Highly recommend!!
Great for Healing
LovelyLavender from Spartanburg, SC
I received this as a sample and wasn't really interested in putting oil on my face but decided to try it just where my cpap mask goes since I break out a lot in those areas. My breakouts were literally gone the next morning. I have only used when I get an actual breakout and have been so happy to see that every single time it heals the breakout over night! I will definitely be purchasing this when my sample runs out. I love the smell as well.
Great Facial Oil— use it correctly!
FSBZ from San Francisco
The best light weight facial oil ever. A bottle lasts forever! I use it at night after a shower or washing my face. You need to be mindful of how much you use and when you use it. Night time is best to let it absorb into the skin and do its job. I've seen people wear this during the day and complain that its too oily. I literally use 6 drops at night: 2 on my forehead, 1 for each cheek, 2 for my beard/chin. Thats all. Has a great texture and pleasant smell.
Love this product
Cara from Cuyahoga Falls
I got a sample of this and fell in love! It makes my dry skin feel very moisturized, has a very pleasant smell and feel on face!! Loved sample so much I bought the full size product and have never been happier!!
My face feels silky and makeup goes on smoother
Kit from Gaylord Michigan
I realize the instructions say to use at night but I love it so much that I apply a teeny drop morning and before bed.
The best night time oil ever!
Ty from Virginia
First, you only need a pea size of product. Your skin will immediately feel soft. The smell is not over powering. I have very sensitive skin & the thought of oil on my face breaks me out. This does not! You only need a pea size amount!
No significant difference after using it for 18 months
hithere1234 from Los Angeles
I've been using this pretty much every night for the past 18 months. I'm sad to say that my dedication to including this into my nightly routine resulted in very little improvement to my skin. When I first started using it, I did like it for leaving my face soft upon application and still somewhat moisturized in the morning. But all the benefits that Kiehls claim that this bottle has, it did not delivery. It just does not do any of what it says. I don't understand it.
In Love With This Product!
ShirlGirl from New Orleans Area
I got this in a sample size as a gift with purchase. I have used for about a week and absolutely love the scent - so calming. This oil absorbs into the skin almost immediately after applying and leaves your skin feeling silky, soft, subtle and glowing. Fine lines are less noticeable as well. In the morning your skin looks amazing. I plan on purchasing in a larger size after I have used up the sample.
ER from MN
I've used this product nearly 12 weeks every evening and I look the same as I did before starting it. The smell is intense and not one I find calming or enjoyable. I haven't noticed a difference in my skin at all, but this serum does leave it feeling sticky and filmy. I want to like Kiehl's products but the more I use, the more I find this brand is not for me.
Midnight Recovery Oil
ClaudiaMSW from San Francisco , CA
This product smells so nice! I really like how it makes my skin feel.
Only product that controlled my cystic acne.
GigiL from Brooklyn, NY, USA
I had really bad cystic acne due to my stress level about 3 years ago. Used a lot of acne related products, changed my diet, cleansed with sterilized towel every night, and still my acne persisted. I first bought this oil in 2017 after hearing Danielle from the Elvis Duran Show boasting about how her face glows from using it one morning. To my surprise, it took away my acne and it keeps my face tamed for the past 3 years. A little goes a long way. So far, I've only used up 2 of the 1.7 oz bottles. Please try this if you have adult acne problems. It might give your face a glow in the morning too!
Nikkie from GA
I used this for over 4 months, I didn't feel like it worked, so I tried to order it again, but so far, it didn't really work, so disappoint
My favorite oil!
Tiffster76 from Altadena, CA
I don't understand some of the bad reviews because, I'm obsessed with this oil! I love the smell, the texture, and it ALWAYS leaves my skin soft and moisturized. I see the effects immediately after I apply it. One thing I do to make the application smoother is I mix it with my Night cream (similar to a booster for my moisturizer). The mixture goes on really smooth.
MAKES U SAY "HOLY MOLY!"
fitmommy from Bay Area, CA
I've received a sample size with my purchase AND let me tell you.. I'm amazed! I have combo-acne prone skin. I'm oily on my forehead/nose/chin area & dry on my cheeks, temple & under eyes. I use Rodan & fields Unblemish for acne line during the day & this OIL at NIGHT. For the past 4 days I've been waking up to a glow & my dark marks are slowly fading. Can't wait to purchase a big bottle of this magic!
Was skeptical of The sample but really loved it
KDbrooklyn from Greenpoint
I was given a sample but never liked the idea of putting oil on my skin. I love that it's scents were all natural. Lavender, jasmine, citrons, So nice before bed. The first time used it I just washed it off, it felt so greasy. I had a good feeling about it so I tried it again the next night; you only need a little. It's greasy at first but in 5 min it's all absorbed leaving your face feeling healthy and cared for. It didn't make my pillow all greasy either. The scent is lovey, not strong and all natural. The only way to do it. I'll definitely will be buying a bottle.
I want to buy the full size
KSin from Portland, OR
Okay, so recently I just got the mini tiny size as a free sampler gift. I've been using it for 3 nights in a row and overall I have to say I love it. I want to buy the full size! It absorbs onto my skin so nicely and it has a very nice pleasant smell. After instantly applying it on I can feel that my skin is soft and looks refreshed. A little ways goes a long way! I wouldn't recommend putting too much because it could leave your skin oil. Applying enough will absorb faster especially if you are applying more products afterwards. I'm going to finish the mini size first before buying the full size! :) remember everyone has different type of skin so this might or might not work for you but definitely try the simpler size < 3
Otti from undisclosed
I love this product. It makes my skin smooth and the smell is very calming, at least for me.
Sarajanek923 from Philadelphia
I received this a couple days ago in the yellow 8 pc skin care gift with purchase. I've used it 2 nights in a row and I'm shook! I'm 42 and although my skin is combination leaning towards oily, my neck and eyes are feeling age and sun. I exfoliate my neck area like crazy but have a fairly constant sandpapery, crepeyness (not actually English 😂). The past 2 mornings I've woken up to soft, supple skin! Cleanse your skin before bed and use the dropper and place the drops where you want them, I do it on my whole face but concentrate on under eye and neck! You don't need a lot of product and went smooth over lightly it is not too heavy or oily! I think this is gonna be the one ladies!
Annag78 from Ireland
I can say only negative things about this serum. I'm very disappointed. I have bought full biggest bottle on the airport. Used half of it. First smell is very strong, herbal, masculine. I used this serum for about 3 months. 5 drops every evening or every second evening. No impact on wrinkles. I have same wrinkles as I had. Skin isn't hydrated at all. I would even say it's more dry. Another bad thing is the next day after use I have black spots on the nose and in some parts of the face ( I don't have them normally ).
In general this serum do absolutely nothing. I'm angry I have spent such a money for something so useless. I wish I get my money back.
Calming Part of My Nighttime Routine
Marth from Chicago, IL
I've been using this for at least 6 months and find the smell soothing and the product to be hydrating to my skin. I apply this lightly each night after washing my face and feel relaxed when going to bed and more hydrated in the morning than before I started using it. Kiehl's products are always pricy but this one is definitely worth it for me. I love the smell and really enjoy including this in my nighttime routine. Overall, a great purchase!
