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.
Reviewed by 883 customers It's a miracle!
4theanimals from Houston, TX
I'm close to calling this a miracle product. I saw a difference in my skin's appearance and feel after one use. I'm 50 with minimal signs of ageing, but still struggling with acne. I also have very oily skin. As this product feels oily to the touch, I was suspicious about using it, but I received a sample and gave it a try. Almost instantly my skin was calm and soothed. The bumps and uneven texture from the acne went away. My skin looks healthier and clearer, and feels soft and smooth. The product does seem to sit on my face like oil, so it's definitely best to use it at night. In the morning you will see and feel a difference. I am more impressed with this product than any I've ever tried!
My go-to nighttime routine
CRock3 from Denver, CO
I've been using this stuff for nearly a year and it's awesome. I break out occasionally and have combination skin so I was worried this would be too oily. That's definitely not the case- it's the right amount of moisture and actually clears and calms my skin, leaving it looking healthy. Even my 13 year old daughter started using it at night and it hasn't caused any issues, just makes her skin beautiful. The cost is high but well worth it.
I would buy again
whitley from Georgia
Use this product nightly! Love the scent of it. Works great
Not for Older Skin
mariij from Virginia
This product sounded like it was what I needed, especially with the ingredients. It makes my skin soft and it feels good. As for the fine lines and making my skin look brighter -it doesn't do anything for those problems.
kalleey from undisclosed
I was hesitant about using an oil on my acne prone face BUT WOW. My acne has gone down! My face is soft in the morning and always looks like a had a great night's sleep. I also LOVE the Avocado eye cream. Very hydrating.
Love this face oil!!
Directorgirl from Miami
I received a sample of this product and have been so happy with it! I have oily to normal skin and had never used oils before. I'm so glad they sent this for me to try! I use it every night now. I even purchased the under eye cream which works wonders as well. Now I'm here to buy a larger size oil. I might just get the cleansing oil too. Your samples are working for me Keihl's! Thank you! < 3
Look forward to night routine
amoore from University City, MO
Absolutely love the smell of this product and the way my skin looks in the morning, the only down side is the smell starts to turn once you reach the bottom of the bottle. But has not stopped me in repurchasing.
Josselyn C. from Chicago, IL
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.
