Known for its affinity with skin and its powerful ability to improve the appearance of skin aging. See more products with Vitamin C

Fernando C: Correcting sun spots Mar 16, 2014
Lucie B: I use the photo-age toner and the photo age moisturizer morning and night, and the dark spot treatment (as needed - but haven't needed it in a long time because it worked so well), and it has really made a big difference in fading my sunspots. I highly recommend it. I tried at least 2 other 'name brands' that you can only get at department stores, and they did not work. Feb 18, 2014

Beth H: This is more expensive than I like to spend on daily moisturizers, but I'm willing to give it a shot. My skin is oily to combination and on the aging spectrum of issues (ie. brown and/or red spots), so the description seems to fit the bill. Hope so! Jun 14, 2013

Carolyn W W: I am no longer of child bearing age so I do nor know the answer to that question. I do know that Keihl's products are clear and I have never had an abrasion or a clogged pore. I like the fact that the company does not add scent.
I hope that this helps in some small way.
