Cinnamon Bark Extract is taken from the dried bark of cultivated trees and is considered to be of much higher quality than extract derived from leaves. It contains an essential oil that is not only recognized for its soothing effects, but is also known to have antibacterial properties.
Glycolic Acid is one of the naturally occurring fruit acids derived from sugar cane. It helps slough off the dry, rough uppermost layer, leaving skin looking smoother and healthier.
How to Apply:
- Cleanse the skin thoroughly before applying medication
- Cover the entire affected area with a thin layer one to three times daily
- Because excessive drying of the skin may occur, start with one application daily, then gradually increase to two or three times daily if needed or as directed by a doctor
- If bothersome dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application to once every day or every other day
Cool Kiehl’s Fact:
When our chemists developed Kiehl’s iconic Blue Astringent Herbal Lotion in 1964, its popularity took off almost from the start. Over forty years later, we attribute its appeal not only to its superior quality, but also its versatility. Kiehl’s male patrons tell us they use it as a post-shave treatment to soothe skin and prevent razor discomfort. Legend has it that Andy Warhol was a fan!

Brenna P: I have struggled with adult acne for a couple of years now, and my skin and acne has recently become less under control. I chose this product because I hope that it will help me cut short the life of acne blemishes.Nov 22, 2012
Ruonan C: I have oily skin and always have acnes. I've been using the tea tree oil from the Body Shop, but that doesn't work very well and I'm afraid that it may be to oily for my skin. I've never used this before, but I read the review of it and decided to try it.Oct 30, 2012
Jang-Sung K: I chose this because I have been getting acnes.Oct 24, 2012
Rebecca H: It is the only thing I have every found, (and I have tried every gimmick and prescription out there) that is able to control my Acne. (but I do wish that the Tea Tree body wash would come back. I'd pay $50 or more for that gem)Oct 24, 2012
Geneva L:No, sorry, this is a treatment with salicylic acid and herbal extracts to help shrink or treat emerging whiteheads/blackheads. If your dark spots/scars are the pigmentation caused by sun exposure, melasma, or acne scars you might want to look at the photo-aging line, clearly corrective line, and products from Kiehl's with vitamin C. I have the same trouble too and by using a combo I'm getting some results without resorting to laser. Good luck!Mar 18, 2013
Tiffany C asked:i have a few dark spot that's really hard to remove, i got them cuz i popped my pimples and i guess i didn't clean it very well so there's dark scars left and i was wondering if this treatment is able to clear the dark scars?Mar 18, 2013
jill m:I have not used the spot treatment for that specifically only for trouble spots when they would pop up. It does however work very well on pimples on drying them out and a word of caution if you have sensitive skin use this sparingly because it will dry out the area around the pimple too. Maybe you could look for a more specific acne spot lightener which I know is out there now this may or may not help with the dark marks? Hope this helps...Apr 12, 2013
Nicole Z:I think the Blue Herbal Spot Treatment is aimed more at getting rid of active acne blemishes rather than the scars that they leave. I use it for breakouts (since it is salicylic acid). I'm not an anesthetician but I would think it would cause redness on scars and normal skin.
I hope this helps :)Apr 12, 2013
Scott A:I have found it to be great for daily acne treatment. I don't think this product is intended to remove dark spots. I have seen other products that do advertise the removal or fading of dark spots.Apr 22, 2013
Lisa M:I don't believe it will diminish brown pigmentation after resolved acne... I believe the verbiage spot is indicated for dab use as in pimple . You may look to a bleaching cream indicating dark spot corrector. Hope this helped .Apr 11, 2013
Noemi M C:I bought this for my teenage boys who LOVED it to help heal their pimples but they do not have the dark scars so I apologize for not being able to a answer your question. As far as an acne spot treatment it's GREAT! Feb 27, 2013
DF G:I use this product for quickly drying up acne that erupts on my face. It really isn't to reduce the appearance of scars, rather it is used to assist in avoiding getting the scares in the first place by controlling the oils that can cause acne. It is also awesome for Razor Burn issues.
