Rated 5 out of 5 by from helps in making my skin look more youthful I have been using this product every morning and a part of my day care routine and my skin is feeling clearer and nourished.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I liked the texture of this serrum it was very light and easily soaks into the skin. However it does not fix with all toners and may just bead up and not go into skin. I don't know if Ive seen a reduction in my dark spots yet but I am still holding out !
Date published: 2020-05-31
Rated 3 out of 5 by from no difference yet but I’ll keep you posted Im giving it 3 stars because I havent seen a difference yet. Maybe its my skin or I just need more time. I will continue to use and see what happens but Ill keep you guys posted. I received this product as a free sample.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loving the results! Ive been sent this Kiehls dark Spot Solution product to test out. So far I am impressed; because Ive only been using it for a month and Im already see results. I have sun spots and an acne scar that I recently got and its already starting to fade. This product is very light weight and has a very subtle scent. Also a little goes a long way! Will definitely continue using and will most likely purchase!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok product I was so excited to try this product but it didnt meet my expectations sadly. I honestly didnt see much of a difference. Overall, I dont think its an amazing f must have product considering its price.

Can i use this product with other brightening treatments?

Can I use “clearly corrective dark spot corrector” then “nightly refining micro-Peel concentrate“ then “clearly corrective brightening and smoothing moisture treatment” nightly? Not sure if it might be too much brightening treatments nightly. Pls help clarify. Thanks.
Asked by: Dashang
Hi there! We suggest using the products in the following order: Cleanser, toner, Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Corrector, Clearly Corrective Brightening and Smoothing Moisture Treatment, Eye Cream. We only suggest using the Nightly Refining Micro-Peel Concentrate a couple times per week. We hope this helps!
