Texture Tuesday – Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Omega-Rich Cloud Cream

June 28, 2022

Thank you to @kiehls and @bzzagent for gifting me the @kiehls Midnight Recovery Omega-Rich Cloud Cream ($53 for 1.7 ounces –!

What it claims:
🔘 This nourishing botanical face cream is whipped into a lightweight, cloud-like texture and is infused with omega 3 and 6 fatty acids plus Kiehl’s thoughtfully chosen blend of rejuvenating botanicals that sink right into the skin
🔘 Contains omega fatty acids, a blend of botanicals, and squalane
🔘 Clean at @sephora
🔘 Vegan

My verdict?
As a fan of so many of @kiehls products and a lover of overnight moisturizers, I couldn’t wait to test this out! I have been using it as my primary nighttime moisturizer (occasionally as my only nighttime skincare product – aside from a cleanser) for over a week now and I have some initial thoughts. Since it’s summertime, my skin doesn’t get as dry as it does in the winter, so I went in thinking this could possibly be too moisturizing due to the texture (which is whipped, yes, but still feels slightly dense on the skin – something I don’t mind, but others may). Unfortunately, no matter how much I used (varying from the suggested pea-size to about four (4) times that amount), I never woke up overly impressed with how my skin looked. Was it hydrated? Yes. Did it smell nice and make me feel like, for 30 seconds, I was transported to a spa? Also yes. Did it hydrate leaps and bounds better than other, less expensive nighttime moisturizers I’ve tried? No. So, with that being said, I will happily use this jar up, but can’t recommend you spend your money adding it to your routine.

FYI, I receive a small commission when you shop via the link listed above. There is no additional cost to you, but it supports me and my blog and I greatly appreciate it!
