Activated C

A potent next-generation active, works faster than the leading dark spot ingredient. Penetrates rapidly to attack deep-set dark spots while preventing the formation of new discolorations for visibly more uniform skin tone and clarity.

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.

Salicylic Acid

Works by softening the intracellular cement and decreasing cell-to-cell adhesion, encouraging the shedding of cells in the stratum corneum layer of the skin. It is effective on acne, as it encourages the peeling of the top layer of skin and the opening of plugged follicles.

Vitamin E

Naturally occurring in plant leaves and skin, Vitamin E helps neutralize skin-damaging free radicals and has soothing moisturizing properties.

Amazonian White Clay

Light Reflecting Minerals produce an instant effect of visible radiance.

Sabrina C: Hi Katherine!
I used this product underneath a my daytime moisturizer which is the Powerful Strength Wrinkle Reducing Cream with SPF.
If you are looking for great hydration-- use the Rosa Artica Light-- it smells like lavender and feels like Heaven!

Kathryn E: it is a light weight moisturizer. I use it in warmer weather when I do not need a heavier one. In the winter, wind, cold, etc, I use the Clearly Corrective Hydrating cream instead. It all depends on what level of moisturizer you need. Jan 27, 2014

Curt Q: I have been using it since the 1st of the month over a light moisturizer and saw results within a few days. At this point, my skin has a glow it's never had before and has an even time I have never had before. My skin marks very easily and this product had been great. Jan 27, 2014

Jacalyn W: My skin is similar. I use this product more in the summer since it helps with sun damage. This emulsion is a lighter option than the cream version, so if you are needing the benefits of this product, this is the option for your skin type for summer. May 17, 2014
Reply to Jacalyn Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
Kim M: I have used it all summer. It is very light and no oily on my skin. (I have mixed skin - normal to oily.) May 17, 2014

Ania S asked: I have never tried Kiehl's before but was recommended to try your products and am struggling to find a good moisturizer. I think I have narrowed it down to three. What is the difference between Clearly Corrective™ Deep Moisture Clarifying Cream and Clearly Corrective™ Hydrating Moisture Emulsion? I was also looking at Rosa Arctica Lightweight Cream. I have oily skin and lots of sun spots and usually prone to breakouts. I wanted to find a good moisturizer to wear under my BB cream which contains SPF 30. Please advise or please point me in the right direction. Thanks!
