Review – Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Eye Cream

13 Jan

I honestly cannot remember the last time I received an eye cream in one of my beauty subscriptions.  This was a nice change, even though I had a Kiehl’s product not too long ago.  Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Eye Cream seemed different enough from I usually see in the monthlies and have received from Kiehl’s.


Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Eye Cream costs $37.00 USD for 0.5 fl oz.

What the manufacturer says:

Midnight Recovery Eye

A restorative eye treatment for younger-looking eyes by morning

  • Leaves under-eye skin feeling strengthened and replenished
  • Diminishes the appearance of fine lines
  • Reduces puffiness and dark under-eye circles
  • Infused with the same natural ingredients as Midnight Recovery Concentrate plus Butcher’s Broom, which improves microcirculation and reduces inflammation
  • No parabens, fragrance, mineral oil or silicones


What Your Fairy Godmother says:

At first impression, this has a very pleasant scent.

It’s a thick cream, and you don’t need very much of it.  The sample was very typical sample size and I used it for almost 2 months.  So, even though the price is high you will get a lot of use from the regular size tube.

I’m not able to confirm any diminishing for lines.  I’m not saying it doesn’t work in the long run, but it didn’t make a difference in a month.

I don’t think it reduces puffiness.

I don’t have dark under-eye circles, so that claim didn’t apply to me.

Overall, this is a nice moisturizer, but I think if you are looking for some serious wrinkle relief, you may want to look into something that is specifically made for wrinkles.

Would I buy it? 

I would, if I didn’t already have a favorite eye cream.  I’m basing this on how well it kept my eye area moisturizer.  It was good, but what I’m currently using is better.

Review – Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Oil-Free Cleanser

29 Sep

Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Oil-Free Cleanser was a Birchbox winner.  I like Kieh’s products, but I don’t love them and I don’t go out of my way to purchase much from the brand.  This may change that.


I was happy with how  generous this sample was.  A full 1 fl oz!  It took a while to use it all up, so that I felt like I got a good amount of time with the product. This retails for about $20.00 for 5 fl oz.

From the Kiehl’s website:

A quick–lathering, refreshing facial cleanser

  • Thoroughly removes impurities and visibly reduces excess oil on skin’s surface, while leaving skin looking more balanced
  • Leaves skin clean and refreshed without over–drying
  • Contains Imperata Cylindrica Root and Lemon Fruit Extracts
  • Oil–free, paraben–free, fragrance–free, colorant–free
  • Gentle enough for sensitive skin

My thoughts:

This product was just as it it is described.

My skin felt really clean and never felt too dry.  It did a very good job with removing all the make-up and gunk off my face

It felt really nice on my skin; it had a sort of pearly texture.  Then it foams up somewhat when you are distributing it on your skin.

My skin is normal during the summer, and I think this would work well with people who have oily or dry skin.  My skin does get easily over-dried, and this didn’t cause any of that dry nonsense.

Would I purchase?

Yes I would.

Have you tried Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Oil-Free Cleanser?
