The best way to think of facial oil is as a turbo boost for your existing routine. They’re concentrated products, so they’re ideal if you’re looking to problem-solve something specific like ageing, post-shave damage, dehydration, etc.

Oil also has a much smaller molecular structure than a cream, which means it’s going to penetrate deeper into the skin and hence more likely to do something worthwhile at a cellular level.

Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate, a rich and luxurious blend of essential oils and botanicals including lavender oil, evening primrose oil and olive-derived squalane, is designed to enhance your skin’s natural nightly recovery process, restoring tone and vitality.

It’s also not overly scented and surprisingly – doesn’t leave skin looking oily.
