Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Eye is an overnight elixir designed to address puffiness, fine lines and wrinkles overnight, but alas it is so much more!

The companion to Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate, Midnight Recovery Eye helps regenerate, repair and replenish the delicate skin around the eye while you sleep, and while skin is naturally repairing itself from daily damage and environmental stressors.  It’s Kiehl’s very first repairing overnight eye product, and is paraben-free, sulfate-free, fragrance-free and mineral-oil free. And completely ROCKS MY WORLD.  I am kind of convinced that it has helped to make my eyelashes lush as well, but that is my extra tid-bit, not something the company claims.

Midnight Recovery Eye combines the unique blend of active essential and botanical oils found in Midnight Recovery concentrate—Squalane, Evening Primrose and Lavender—as well as a new ingredient, Butcher’s Broom, a rare herb that’s known to improve blood circulation, and has been specifically added to strengthen the fragile capillary walls and reduce puffiness under the eyes.   The new ingredient is in direct keeping with their apothecary roots—it’s been used for centuries by old-world pharmacists. Sounds kind of be-witching to me…

Key Ingredients:

  • Butcher’s Broom Extract  (Ruscus aculeatus)

Used for centuries by old-world pharmacists, Butcher’s Broom is high in bioflavonoids, and is said to improve cutaneous microcirculation and reduce inflammation.  Traditionally it’s known to combat edema – a swelling of skin due to water retention caused by weak blood circulation – by strengthening blood vessels.

  • Squalane

A signature Kiehl’s ingredient, Squalane is a botanical oil hat is similar in molecular structure to natural skin lipids. It has an exceptional affinity to skin, and because it’s easily absorbed.

  • Evening Primrose Oil

Rich in omega-6 and essential fatty acids that the body cannot naturally produce.  Also effective on skin-barrier repair.

  • Natural Essential Oils

A blend of essential oils including lavender, known for their therapeutic, balancing, and antioxidant effects.

Available at all Kiehl’s stores nationwide and at, starting this month for SRP $36.00.
