White Birch Extract

A sugar derived ingredient known for its ability to restore hydration and nutrients to the dermis and epidermis layers of skin . This potent active increases skin elasticity levels and collagen production resulting in restored skin density, volume and thickness.

Peony Extract

Works synergistically with Activated C to facilitate the reversal of discoloration for skin clarity.


15% Plant-based Glycerin: A renowned skincare ingredient that works as a moisture magnet and pulls essential moisture into skin. It is highly compatible with skin and also creates a “reservoir effect”, enhancing the water-holding capacity of the skin and ultimately helping to provide skin elasticity and plumpness and facilitates epidermal barrier function. The glycerin used in this formula is plant-based and can be derived from sources including palm fruit, rapeseed and coconut. .

Kellan A: I have combo skin that is fairly dry. I really love this cleanser. I originally bought the Ultra Face Cleanser, but was still having some breakout issues. Needless to say the Clearly Corrective helped my skin! If you have breakouts I highly recommend the Acne Blemish Control (note I do not have acne but breakouts and this works! I do morning and evening). Jun 20, 2013

Michelle R: I have psoriasis (appears dry, scaled and irritated on the face) and have had a lot of trouble with other cleansers but this one has been excellent. I also use the midnight repair oil and my skin has been great since I started using it. I really have had compliments on my complexion since I started using these products. Good luck! Jun 20, 2013

Eun C: I don't knowi if you need to, but I do. But this cleanser is the best I've used so far. I've used Kihel's other cleansers, and all others in market (from store brands to expensive department store brands, including SK-II and LaMer), but this is far best... Aug 24, 2013

Kathleen H: I don't know if there is a 'correct' way to wash my face with this cleanser. Here's I do it, though. I use a wet terry cloth face cloth with not much cleanser on it. Using circular motion to wash and massage face. Then I rinse with warm water, then cold.

Have gotten several comments, after using Kiehl's products, on how good my skin looks so I guess it's working.

Happy washing!

joann l: I use it on both a damp and a dry face depending on whether I am in the shower or at the sink. It works great both ways. Just remember a little goes a long way. I really like the way it washes off leaving your skin feeling clean with no residue Jun 23, 2013

Ye L: I don't see the purifying effect, and my acne scar did not get better after using this...but I still brought the second one because I got much less acne after using this together with clarisonic face brush. I can say it helps you to clear your make up dealt well. Nov 12, 2013

A shopper asked: I've been using the Ultra Facial Cleanser for a couple years and it's doing good. However, this Clearly Corrective Cleanser sounds good to me. Should I give it a try? Jun 17, 2013

Stephanie G: I have also been using the Ultra Facial Cleanser for years and I love it! A few months ago I decided to try the Clearly Corrective, and although I loved how my skin felt immediately after using it, I ended up sending it back a few weeks later. It doesn't dissolve makeup the way that the Ultra Facial Cleanser does, and over time I felt like it left a film on my skin. I had more frequent breakouts with this product, and lots of redness (I have very sensitive skin). I think it's worth trying, especially because of the Kiehl's Guarantee, but don't get rid of your Ultra Facial Cleanser just yet! Jun 17, 2013

Bonnie O: Yes I use it with mine every day! But just to warn you, if any of the cleanser migrates into my eye it stings very badly, which seems a little strange for a facial cleanser. The texture is very creamy though, perfect for use with the Clarinsonic. May 18, 2013

laurie w: The Ultra facial Cleanser is a great all around cleanser. I've been using the clearly corrective cleanser during the winter months, as my skin dries out with all the central heat in home/office and the clearly corrective is a bit heavier.

Nancy H: I am Italian and have dark olive skin and I really like this, I only use it about twice a week, and I use the oil free cleaner the other times, but to answer your question, I think you will like it and you will not see any lighten, it brightens more than lightens, nice healthily clean glow.
