Kiehl's Malaysia, Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleansing Oil - Pamper.My

In cased you missed our Kiehl’s Vitality Getaway post, Kiehl’s introduced 2 new products to us. First is the Pure Vitality Skin Renewing Cream and today we’re taking you through the Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleansing Oil, a non-comedogenic, non-acnegenic innovation that deeply cleanses your skin while maintaining your skin’s barrier without leaving an oily residue. This unique cleansing oil not only efficiently washes away skin impurities such as dirt, oil and sunscreen, but stubborn makeup does not stand a chance too, eliminating the need for double-cleansing. In a consumer study done by Kiehl’s, 94% of women said they didn’t need to use another cleanser or makeup remover after using the Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleansing Oil.

The Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleansing Oil is soap-free, sulfate-free and mineral oil free so it’s great for all skin types. Using oil to clean one’s skin may seem contrary to what consumers have historically been taught, especially those with oily skin, noted Cammie Cannella Kiehl’s Vice President of Global Education. But our skin produces more oil in order to protect our skin from external damage so one of the best ways to combat excess oil and impurities is to use a cleansing oil.

Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleansing Oil - Pamper.MyJust like the Midnight Recovery Concentrate, it contains key ingredients of the Midnight Recovery blend such as Squalane, Evening Primrose Oil, and Lavender Essential Oil — which provides an effective, soothing, sensorial experience, leaving your skin thoroughly cleansed and hydrated.

  • Squalane: This signature Kiehl’s ingredient is a botanical lipid derived from olives and shares a similar molecular structure with skin’s own natural oils. It has emollient characteristics that allow it to coat the skin’s surface. Within the formula, Squalane is used as a solubilizing ingredient to break up makeup and impurities on skin. It also helps to soften and hydrate your skin.
  • Evening Primrose Oil: A botanical oil obtained through cold press extraction of evening primrose flowers with a high content of Omega-6 and Omega-3 fatty acids. Within the formula, Evening Primrose helps to maintain skin barrier and leave skin feeling replenished and smooth.
  • Lavender Essential Oil: Sourced from Bulgarian lavender and obtained by steam distillation of the flower top reserve its natural aroma. This aromatic Essential Oil helps to soothe skin and prepare it for nighttime replenishment.
