Rated 1 out of 5 by PDXMD Questionable Effectiveness
I've been using this solution for about a month and have yet to notice any difference. I'm willing to give this much more time, but it is quite discouraging. Speaking of "Dermatologist Solutions," which seems to be a nice marketing technique to lend "gravitas" to any claim that this product works, does Kiehl's have any objective "clinical evidence" that the ingredients in this product are effective? Or is this all based on hearsay and anecdotal reports!
Rated 2 out of 5 by Madibell BEWARE: Not worth the price!
I've used this for about 2 1/2 months, 3/4 through the bottle (used day and night). Unfortunately, I do not see a reason to repurchase this item. It has a lovely consistency and wears nicely under/combined with other products, but I DO NOT see a significant difference in my skin tone/texture to justify the price and existence of this product. It works best on fresh scars/pimples, but it still takes a while for the scars to fade (I've used sunblock daily to prevent reversing the effects). I highly recommend getting a sample if you want to see how it works for your skin, but people claim it takes FOREVER for any effect to occur, and unfortunately it's not fairly priced for how "fast" it "works". I've been told that it works best combined with the rest of the line. Kiehl's should sell a trail set of all the products, if that's the case! People shouldn't have to pay the full price of all the products in the line just to get the results that ONE product claims to do!
Rated 2 out of 5 by SkincareLover Cannot see effect
I have dark spots from previous acnes, dark spots round my nose and mouth. I used the large size of this product and did not see any effect on my face. The texture was a bit sticky but not that bad if compared to other products. I am not sure if you need to continue to use this product (not just one bottle) to see the effect, but I wont continue to purchase it. Other products (e.g., Lancome) could do a better job.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Alaska Love it so far
I bought it in Sweden maybe a month ago. I have A LOT of acne scars, from a 4 year long struggle with acne and I was defently suffering from them regarding my self esteem without makeup. After I had gotten it I read some reviews that scared my a little, about how it's gonna make me break out and not work and blah blah blah. Nothing like that happened. In addition to dermarolling one a month, I use the serum every night and have already noticed a big change. The smaller scars have faded for the most part, and the bigger ones have gotten way less noticeable. Texture is great, soaks in to the skin really quickly. Highly recommend

I've been using this product for over a year and only now just noticed a slight difference in the appearance of my dark spot. I'm not sure what all the hype is about with this product but on my skin - it just doesn't work as promised.
Bright side is that this is a lot safer for your dark spot than to bleach your skin - that's for sure. So I suggest if you end up deciding to get this serum, understand that it will take a lot longer than you expected but know in the end that it will help a little.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lulu16 So far so good!
I just started using this corrector about 3 weeks ago and no, my scars have not all faded, but I am definitely noticing a difference in my hyper pigmentation. I don't have any craters or large pores, but I do have slightly red pigmentation from a long acne battle on my chin. My biggest concern before using this product was "is this going to make me break out even more and defeat the purpose?" And the answer is no (for me anyway). No extra pimples, in fact it may be helping to reduce my breakouts. Less pigmentation, no breakouts, great texture on the skin, dries quickly, sits well under moisturizer, or by itself. I only use 3 drops for my whole face, or one drop for just my chin area, so I know this will last a while. As for the price, well, I don't like shelling out $50, but I believe it's worth it.
Rated 1 out of 5 by luvJKNR Wish It Worked
I'm an Asian soccer mom....so I am out in the sun A LOT. I always took for granted that I never burned or freckled, so I rarely used sunscreen...boy am I paying for that now. I now have multiple dark spots on my cheeks. I feel as if I just woke up one day and BAM there they were.
I saw this product and so wished it worked....and it so doesn't. I used it religiously for 8 weeks and my spots look the same.

I bought this product after having a very bad breakout just before Christmas. I had 4 very dark red spots on my cheek from the breakout and started using this the week before New Years. I didn't notice much of a change in the first 2 weeks but I am currently a college biology student and learned that your skin takes anywhere from 30-40 days to fully replenish itself so I knew it would take time to see real results.
I use this product every morning religiously, rubbing 4 drops on my face after cleansing and using a toner. Now roughly 90 days later the spots are completely gone. There was a noticeable difference after the first month but the spots were so dark originally that it took a little longer for them to completely disappear.
I have also noticed that I do not break out anywhere near as much as I used to and the small blemishes I do have occasionally disappear after only 2-3 days with this serum. This will not give you immediate results, it will take time but it is worth every cent
