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.

I have a lot of sun damage. I've been using the Clearly Corrective Exfoliator and I love it!

It's so silky & moisturizing. I've used less expensive moisturizers & this is more than worth the money, you use much less than other brands I've tried.

Is this product used instead of a moisturizer or underneath a good moisturizer? I need really good hydration as I work outside..
Katherine M on Jan 27, 2014
Best Answer: 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!

Can I use it on summer? I have a mix skin and little dry. I don't wanna too oil after I use it in daytime. Thank you~
Binshan F on May 17, 2014
Best Answer: 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.

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!
