Anyone used this? What are your thoughts? I have a 20% kiehls discount and am wondering whether to go for it

I have only tested it in store but it was a really nice consistency and it gets rave reviews. Ingredients are nice, although if you are sensitive it does have some strong essential oils in there like lavender. Can you get near a store to try it? Kiehls are really good with samples as well.

I use it and really like it. Not sure why exactly! But it's one thing I keep buying again.

I'm 51 and have been using it for about 3 years I think. Also use the eye cream. Want to get to a counter and try a few other bits. I think I need a cream to go over the Midnight Recovery as feel it's sometimes not enough.

I've used it and it burned but I am extremely sensitive

Try a sample first - I heard rave reviews and my friend loves it but on my second use my face felt uncomfortably hot (altho I wouldn't say burned) and I couldn't face using again. Have only the highest praise for their intensive hand cream and creme De Corps though.

Thanks guys - I did get it because apparently I can return in 28 days if I don't like it so I'll report back if anyone is interested

Would be interested to hear how you get on - I use it and it doesn't irritate my skin, but I'm not convinced it really does anything either...

I like it. I use the midnight eye cream too and top it all off with a dollop of the nivea thick cream in the blue tubs. In summer I replace the nivea with k's moisturiser which is supposed to be really rich but i find too light.

So on night 3 of using this and unfortunately I haven't found it really does anything.

My routine is my Emma Hardie cleanser, Pixi glow tonic, then this. I mean it's a nice oil, but that's it. I guess because of reviews on some other sites I was expecting miracles which this didn't give me hmm

I'll probably send it back when I get back to work next week.

How long did they say it would take OP? I usually find it takes around a week for skincare to make a difference.

What are you expecting it to do?

I use it, but I do acid toner, serum, oil, then night cream - oil on its own doesn't do much. I don't think I notice it "doing" anything, but I definitely notice if I don't use it.

Well I use a good cleanser and acid toner so I don't want to add more to the routine apart from another layer of oil. I also use eye cream.

It is meant to plump your skin, made you look like you've slept for ages, just generally take away the dullness from your face.

I may give it a few more days but it's not been like Guerlain Issima Midnight Secret which does all of the above so well.
