Most Helpful Positive Review An amazing addition to my morning routine
I've only been using this product for about a week and I can already see and feel a difference in my skin. I use this in combination with 13 other Kiehl's products every morning. This product is so amazingly easy to use in combination with your other morning products. Your skin soaks this in so fast you can almost immediately apply your next product.
Most Helpful Critical Review If it works at all, it doesn't for my skin
I'd like to begin this review by saying that I love the Midnight Recovery Concentrate and hoped that the Daily Reviving Concentrate would be an effective counterpart to it. However, all that I noticed from the DRC was oily skin. Now, I will add that I have combination skin and my T-zone is usually very oily (I use the moisturizer from the oil/shine reducing line) but I hoped that, like the Midnight Recovery Concentrate, this would absorb easily into my skin and prevent overproduction of oil. Sadly this was not the case and my face was left greasy. However, the description of the product is fair- the oil is lightweight, but it still coated my skin with a light layer of oil and even that makes it feel heavier.
Compliments to Kiehl's for their wonderful return policy. I hope that this product works for other people but it just didn't for me.
Reviewed by 163 customers Mandatory addition for glow.
JFlo from Denver, CO
Soft glowy and dewey. I actually tried a sample of this and was in love. I will admit there are things from Kiehls I either can or can't live without. This one is a mandatory addition.
Did not work for my skin as I had hoped
SH76 from Washington, DC
I haven't found it as useful as I had hoped as it does make my face a little shinier than dewy. I also don't love the ginger smell but that is a personal preference and not something that is inherently wrong with the product.
Love this product!
KPem from Grovetown, GA
Love this product. I tried something else for a while but I'm back because I missed this. Not oily, just perfect!
Love this product.
Amy Louise Lee from Princeton, NJ
First of all, it smells so nice and light. Second, I love the weight of the oil, it sinks into your skin and doesn't feel oily. I'm able to apply make up shortly after applying it. Bought some for my mom too.

Too expensive. Lousy applicator.what else do you want to know?
good product for many years
LucyLucy from undisclosed
very good product . has been using it for a long time
Emily12345 from Maryland
I found this product left an oily residue for the whole day; it did not absorb as I was hoping. Furthermore, it's frustrating the customer has to pay shipping both ways if you don't like a product. So unfortunately I'm stuck with a product that doesn't work well for me.
Causes Dry Patches
MelissaM from CT
I've returned to this product several times over the last few years. I love the scent texture. Regardless of the season, temperature or humidity, I always develop leathery dry patches on my cheeks that resolve when I discontinue use.
Lildee121 from New York, NY
I've been using this product daily for the past 3 years. My skin loves it, I love it, I will never stop using it so I needed to share my love with everyone else!
Dry skin has life again
AliK from undisclosed
My skin went downhill from stress the last 6-8months. When I saw my reflection I just felt old and didn't recognize myself. My skin is sensitive and horribly dry. I bought the night recovery and chose this as a sample. Sample has lasted well over a week and I LOVE it. Skin is glowing and back to life. I bought a full bottle of it. I'm loving Kiehls everything.
Effie from STL
Sadly no change to my skin, though I'm finishing up my bottle. Try the midnight recovery oil for nighttime instead...that stuff is great.
Leaves my skin glowing and smooth!
MckenzieLana from undisclosed
I began using this product around a month ago, and I've received multiple comments on how my face glowed! So many people asked me what I used, and all I have to point to is this! It's my holy grail. I don't like using makeup and was looking for a product that would give me a glowing look, and this product achieved that. I'm in love. If you're debating on whether or not to purchase it, do it! You won't regret it.
Not suitable for dry and sensitive skin
Sensitive skin from Ireland
I loved its smell and texture but after 3 days of use my skin got very dry and patchy. I don't think it is for sensitive and dry skin . Disappointed by this
Proven To Revive Skin Texture
Kastriona from Ny
I use this every morning after cleansing and toning. And with this on my skin, I feel like my skin is dewy, clean, and hydrated. But it's not greasy at all! It is quickly absorbed by my skin. Just this and eye makeup looks perfect when I want to go for no make up make up look.
I love the citrusy scent. It is perfect staple for winter season. I have been using it for 2 weeks straight and noticed dramatic change in the texture of my skin. My skin looks so hydrated and feels so great!!! I love this face oil!
Skin breakout and smell
Stepher817 from undisclosed
My skin, which is normally very clear and free of breakouts, broke out when I started using this. I also don't love the smell which is totally secondary to the break out is caused. I have a whole bottle I don't have a use for now. I love the other products and have been using the midnight face oil for over a year with no Sid effects.
A must for dry skin
Kyclone from union, Ky.
I've been using this face oil for a couple years. I now can't imagine not having it in my skin-care routine. It make my dry skin appear dewy and healthy. I love it.
I can't live without it
Sheila A from Las Vegas, NV
I use it every day, I get compliments on how beautiful my skin is daily. My only concern is that I like to shop for the best deal for my money. I can't seem to find the 3.4 fl oz-100ml. Has this size been discontinued?
Orange/lemon juice for my skin
tintin from Los Angeles
I love this oil! My skin react to this oil like my body to the freshly squeezed orange juice in the morning!
Please bring back 100 ml bottle! < 3
Christian Yactayo from 60645
I have used this product for a while now, and i stopped using it for 2 periods of 1 month each time during this year and everytime i used it again i started getting pimples.
Im changing of company for my face creams
Shawzy from RI
Great product but the applicator didn't work after a day. It's a shame Bc of price
A Staple in My Skin Care
Lisa0111 from Grand Rapids, MI
I discovered this from a sample and fell in love. I use it first thing in the morning on clean skin on days that I'm not going into the office. With Covid-10, it pretty much means I'm using it daily as I don't shower until later in the day now that I'm working from home! It doesn't feel greasy at all. My skin looks dewy and feels fresh. I have been using Kiehl's skincare products exclusively for over 10 years.
My only gripe, and the reason for the lack of a star, is that it doesn't travel well. The bottle leaks when you pack on an airplane. Twice I've lost more than 1/2 bottle. I will leave this one at home in the future.
Really Brightens and Softens My Skin
MelP from Chicago
I originally received a sample of the Daily Reviving Concentrate and was very impressed with it after just the first use, so I purchased a full size. I have dry skin and this product is amazing. For my routine, I use a toner first and then apply a few drops of the concentrate to the palm of my hand, and then press into my face. My skin ends up being so soft and smooth, and not at all oily or shiny looking. I finish off with Kiehl's Ultra Moisturizer and their Avacado Eye Cream and my skin is bright and glowy and so, so soft. This product is one of my favorite Kiehl's products and definitely worth the price.
Not worth it
Kira from Virginia
The oiliness didn't bother me because I have dry skin and love oils. The amount of fragrance and essential oils in this one product is insane and made my skin itchy.
I have been using this product for several years
Okoboji from Iowa
I use the product every morning keeps my skin moist
I love this product
pleased from philadelphia, pa
I love everything about this product, the way it applies, the feel, and smell.
When I skip using this my skin feels less subtle or even dry during the day.
