Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective™ Dark Spot Solution

Unlike here-today-gone-tomorrow zits, dark spots have a tendency to stick around. Technically called hyperpigmentation, this uneven coloration can be caused by aging, sun exposure, and hormonal changes. Happily, with the help of this fast-performing serum, you’ll be seeing clear again. The latest addition to Kiehl’s star-studded skincare line, Clearly Corrective™ Dark Spot Solution uses naturally brightening activated vitamin C and white birch to even out skin tone in just a few weeks.

I have sun damage and acne scars and this product was amazing. Goes on nice and dries fast.

Fabulous product
Purchased

I started using this product through Birchbox and it has significantly lightened my acne scars! It also seems to have an added effect of pushing out acne, which helps to keep my skin clear. When I stopped using it for ~6 months, my acne came back (I have the kind that is very deep and hangs around for months before leaving a deep red scar). As soon as I started using it again, my skin cleared up and my scars went away quickly. Even my fiance was surprised because it was THAT noticeable. Super awesome.
Just don't forget to wear sunscreen! Makes you more susceptible to burning.

I signed up for this site just to write this!

I'm a 21 year old girl, dry-combination skin, and skin color on the fair side. I have medium colored dark spots on my cheekbones right under my eyes. My mom has them too, so I dont know if it's genetic or hormonal or whatever. I just started using this solution last night. Used it after my toner and before my moisturizer. I woke up and saw lighter dark spots. And I'm not kidding to anyone. I thought I was just seeing things. But then after I put on my makeup, I do see LESS noticeable dark spots (usually its pretty visible even after makeup). Then tonight, I just applied it again (I do skincare day and night), and I swear, my dark spots has gotten much lighter! I would say like around 40% diminish of the dark spot color. WHICH is pretty significant! I couldn't believe a solution could be this strong. None of those popularity-based products (like lancome/estee-lauder/such) had done wonders on my face like this. I'm loving it and definitely going to recommend it to people I know.

It does fade dark spots for me. I have brown skin and I love how this works for acne scars.

Newest & Biggest fan!

I'm a die-hard kiehl's fan and self-proclaimed (and unashamed) addict but this is my newest Kiehl's obsession! I use this product both in the morning and at night. It's packaging and name give the impression that it's a heavier serum but the product itself is a very lightweight solution. A few drops goes a long way and it literally feels like water on your skin- it's that light-weight! I have only been using this for about two weeks but I have noticed a difference in my uneven skin-tone (something I have always tried to even out) and the overall tone & texture. I have seen a little improvement in the dark spots/acne scars that we've all acquired over the years- but I'm confident that they will continue to diminish since I haven't even hit the 2-week mark yet. Definitely worth trying!

Pregnancy Mask Helper

I have a large dark spot on my cheek from when I was pregnant with my son....I know, I know...I should have worn sunscreen daily! Since I was not wise enough to prevent this, I have been looking for something to get rid of the brown spot. I have used at least 5 different products, from vanishing creams to department store promises and this is the first one that made a real difference quickly. I have been using it for a few weeks and have noticed the dark spot, as well as freckles lighten up by about 25%! I am hopeful that with continued use, I will get that darn spot gone for good!

Works!

I used a small amount of this product once a day for a few weeks on some sun damage on my forehead and noticed an improvement. It absorbs into the skin and is weightless. I would purchase the full size.

I love this stuff. It works. Unfortunately I tried another product just for fun and it didn't work half as well as this one. Love, love, love.

Wiping Away the Past

The light texture goes on smoothly and doesn't cause breakouts, but the ingredients are strong enough to make a difference. It's a key part of my skincare routine.
