I was recently sent across an absolute new wonder in a bottle: Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleansing Oil, an ultra light weight cleansing oil. Literally, I have never been in much oils for cleansing my face or makeup (except olive oil sometimes). So when I got my hands on it, I was super excited to try out and nonetheless I am cock-a-hoop at its result.
I’m using this oil from quite a time and this non-comedogenic, non-acnegenic oil cleanses my skin from deep inside while maintaining the skin barrier without leaving an oily residue. This cleansing oil not only washes away any type of skin impurities such as dirt, oil and sunscreen but also works so effectively on stubborn makeup and leaves a soothing effect onto the skin.
This Cleansing Oil carries Squalane, Evening Primrose Oil and Lavender Essential Oil, an ultimate blend for effective, soothing, sensorial experience by leaving the skin thoroughly cleansed and hydrated. Squalane used to work as a solubilising ingredient to break up makeup and impurities on skin by giving a soften and hydrated skin. Evening Primrose Oil helps to maintain skin barrier and leaves skin feeling replenished and smooth. Being enriched with natural aroma, Lavender Essential Oil helps to soothe skin and prepares it for nighttime replenishment. This soap-free, sulfate-free and mineral oil free formulated cleansing oil makes your skin refreshed through out the night.
This lightweight oil has non greasy texture and your skin will love this product. Take 3 to 4 pumps into your dry or wet hands. Apply all over the face including eye area and massage for 2-3 minutes. You can add water and massage skin to emulsify the oil, creating a gentle cleansing milk. Rinse your face thoroughly and pat dry with a soft towel. For long-wear and waterproof eye makeup, first dispense 2 pumps onto a cotton pad and gently press on the eye area for 10 seconds. Gently wipe outwards and clean up.
I love using this. It won’t make my skin feel irritated as it is summer in Kolkata now and oils sometimes bother me but I am so happy with this formula for my sensitive skin. The travel friendly package is easy to use and carry as well.
A 175ml bottle is priced for ₹3200.
