Rated 5 out of 5 by pushing60 works for me
I dry skin, and a large "stain" on my cheek bone. This product lightened it within a week, and it continues to fade.
Rated 5 out of 5 by WhosThirty Patience is a Virtue
I originally picked up this product because I was getting married in August and after a pretty bad sun burn a few months before I had two very noticeable sun / age spots on my face that were visible even through cover up. They were so bad, they were showing up in pictures! I've noticed that since I've turned 30, my skin made a fast decline. Sun damage is noticeable almost immediately, the skin around my eyes has loosened, and overall has lost brightness and elasticity.
I did some research and found that this serum was one of the highest rated dark spot correctors out there, so I booked it to my nearest Keihl's store. I spoke to a sales associate and I appreciated his candor. He said that it wasn't a miracle cure (i.e.: my spot would not be gone before my wedding in 2 weeks), but would take a few months to show results. I bought it anyway based mostly on his honesty and because I've enjoyed Keihl's products before. Of course he was right and I saw no difference in the two weeks. It took until about Novemeber (3 months) when I looked in the mirror and saw the lighter spot under my eye was completely gone and the really deep, dark spot had lightened significantly. It's now January (5 months later) and the spot on my forehead is almost gone. I'm about halfway through the bottle (minus however much my husband accidentally spilled down the sink). A little goes a long way, I used 4-5 drops every day after a shower followed by Keihl's sunscreen and the lightweight rose artica moisturizer.
I have normal, but sensitive skin (the wrong products send my skin into a tailspin). The price might be a hard pill to swallow (it certainly was for me), but the older I get the more I find that spending money on the right products makes all the difference in the world!
Rated 5 out of 5 by TheArchivist Reduced my sun spot!
I'm fair skinned, in my early 30s, and developed a line of sunspots on my jaw. I used the free sample and after two weeks I'm already noticing fading! I plan on purchasing a full sized bottle soon. Compared to other highly rated spot reducers, this one is the most affordable.
Rated 5 out of 5 by PTDMA Takes a while, but works!
I am of southeast Asian origin-I tan easily, brown up, and grew up in Southern California, basically spending all my days outside. I am also allergic to chemical sunscreens. All this-loving the sun, never burning, and almost never using sunscreen has wreaked havoc on my skin. Even though I found a mineral suncreen that worked for me a few years ago, the damage was done. I turned 36 this year and all of a sudden, sunspots seemed to appear out of nowhere on my cheeks. Brown blobs that I recognize on my 92-year old grandmother on my own cheeks.
I started researching and decided on using the Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution, the toner, and the facial wash. The facial wash was too harsh on my dry skin, so I stopped using it. However, I've been using the toner and the solution on my face for about 10 months now and the results have been fantastic. The spots have drastically faded. The small spots are gone and the big spots have reduced in size. Overall the color of the spots is so much closer to my natural skin tone. I use the solution on my entire face, even though the spots are concentrated on my cheeks.
My face feels much brighter and I am very happy with the product. Yes, it is expensive, but to me worth it.
Just a note-I'm not sure if it made a difference, but I also use the Ultra Facial moisturizer and cleanser, the daytime and nighttime facial oils, and the concentrated serum. I use a lot of Kiehl's, so all of this in conjunction may have played a role in how well the Dark Spot solution worked.
Rated 4 out of 5 by phbsimon Spot finally gone
It took an entire bottle, but a huge dark spot on my check is just about gone. I'm going to order another bottle because the spot is from a scar I've had for over two years that was not going away. I thought the results would be a little quicker, but given I waited 2 years to try this product, I could wait. The bottle lasted 4 months and I was a bit taken back by the price, but it worked and my spot is so very faint that I am beyond thrilled.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Jasmine It didn't work
It didn't correct any of my dark spots or even a very little acne scar/spot after I went through a whole bottle. Also, it tends to "evaporate"??
Rated 5 out of 5 by Avi8trix ONLY one that ever worked!
I have fair skin (English background), and fried myself as a teenager (remember baby oil with iodine as a "sun tan lotion"?) so I had lots of dark age spots, especially on my hands, chest and legs. (I'm not discussing freckles, have no idea how this product works there.) In particular, my hands and chest made me look at least a decade older. I tried every single spot corrector on the market, even the most expensive. This is the ONLY product that ever made a difference, and with about a month's usage, my dark spots are almost completely GONE! I wish I had taken "before" pictures, but frankly, I didn't expect this product to work, either. But let me just say this, even my husband and teenaged daughter noticed! I'm a lazy person who selfishly never writes reviews, so please believe me when I say that this worked for me!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Tukinator Works wonders!
I got this as a sample, and I have been applying it on my dark spots trouble area ever since I got it. My dark spot is basically old pimple scar that turned into a dark spot and also other spots occurring with other causes, and I was very skeptical of this product seen as how the reviews weren't all that great. I tried it anyway, and the dark spots are diminishing. Not totally gone just yet, but I can see visible diminishing in size and color, which I don't think is bad for only been using it for about 2 weeks.
