Birchbox Breakdown

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.

How to Use

After washing your face, apply a thin layer all over your skin. You can also use this serum to fade hyperpigmentation on your hands, neck, and décolletage.

Key ingredients: Activated vitamin C, White birch extracts, peony extracts

Fabulous product

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.

One of the best dark spot removals

This product really fades dark spots. I have alot of dark spots, but this dark spot solution faded them all away. I recommend this product to everyone that has problems with dark spot. Just wish I had a bigger bottle.

better than clinique

used both this product for spots on my face as well as Clinique clinical dark spot corrector and Keihl's had much better results. I noticed more fading on acne spots and worked as a toner as well compared to clinique.
