Washing with oil may seem outlandish, but with over 160 years of experience under its belt, we’re going to trust Kiehl’s on this one.

Kiehl’s Since 1851 is turning facial cleansing on its head with their newly released “Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleansing Oil”, cleansing the skin gently with an oil based cleanser while maintaining the skin barrier.

In fact, in 2010, Kiehl’s became a pioneer in the facial oil category when it introduced Midnight Recovery Concentrate, a potent blend of botanical extracts that replenishes skin overnight. The latest edition to the range, “Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleansing Oil” is a non-acnegenic innovation that deeply cleanses while maintaining the skin barrier without leaving an oily residue. The Cleansing Oil is soap-free, sulfate-free and mineral oil free.

The cleanser features the “Midnight Recovery” blend of ingredients—Squalane, Evening Primrose Oil, and Lavender Essential Oil—which within the formula provide an effective, soothing, sensorial experience, leaving the skin thoroughly cleansed and hydrated.

Kiehl’s was founded as an old-world apothecary and represents a blend of cosmetic, pharmaceutical, herbal, and medicinal knowledge developed and passed on through the generations.

Kiehl’s latest release, “Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleansing Oil” is available from the flagship boutique at Britomart.
