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.

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!

love Kiehls.......but bummed about this
Purchased

I have dark spots on my face and chest. I religiously used this product and saw no improvement. I'm usually my worst critic, but my husband said the same. No difference....bummer

At A Standstill
Purchased

When I first started using this product I noticed results soon after. Now that I have been using for a while it seems the spots are just remaining the same. Not getting lighter or darkening. Maybe I hit a plateau?

More even skin
Purchased

It's definitely made my skin more even but I haven't noticed a really significant difference. So easy to apply though, just a few drops needed.

Very gentle
Purchased

I've been using this for a little more than a month on my hyperpigmentation from acne. It's clearly my skin, but very slowly. It's also a little sticky when applied, but I feel like it helps my foundation stay on my face.

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!

I don't see my spots lightening

I think it is very hard to lighten spots and many products I have tried seem to be ineffective and very expensive. I love Kiehl's products but this one after a month didn't make any difference on my Melasma/sun spots. Too bad I don'tlike hydroquinone and can't afford a dermatologist.

there are better alternatives

The old version that Kiehls made for dark spot correction was a cream and it worked better.I even used it on my neck and hands and spots were reduced. When I purchased this one after running out of the cream, I was disappointed. I wondered if I had reached the max limit on correction - when I asked my dermatologist about reducing dark spots she said use something with hydroquinine. So now I am searching for a new product.

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.

My Favorite Thing
Purchased

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.
