Key Ingredients

Did You Know?

What Causes Dark Spots?

Did You Know?
Melanin is what gives hair, eyes, and skin their color, and dictates whether areas of your skin may have dark spots, discoloration, or hyperpigmentation. Their appearance may be due to sun damage (sun spots), inflammation (often a result of eczema, psoriasis, or acne), and hormones—sometimes seen in pregnant women. Dark spots and hyperpigmentation are common, and potent formulas like Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Corrector and brightening serum are an effective way to treat them.

Before and After Using our Dark Spot Corrector

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magic in a bottle!! Floored! I’m shocked at how well this works. I have some scars from a horrible accident and it left some dark spots after they healed completely. Because I’m Latin I have an olive complexion that makes dark spots more visible. I used the Dark Spot corrector after a friend gave me a sample he had received from a store. I tried it on a darker spot and the spot became instantly lighter. Like 60% lighter. I did it again the next day on the same spot and now you can barely see it. It’s almost the same color as the rest of the skin around it. I’ve spent a lot of money trying different creams and lotions to help my scars be as invisible as possible but they only returned over a few days. It’s been 2 weeks and the spot is still barely visible. Thanks to the wizards at Kiehl’s I have my clearer skin and my confidence back. You’ve got a happy and loyal customer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I see zero change. I have been using this product for about 2 and 1/2 months. I use it every morning and every evening and still see no difference. I will continue to search for a different product that's more effective.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I got rid of my dark spots I was using another product and they change their formula and it didn’t seem to work the same and since I was already using other products by Kiehl’s which I’ve being using for 19 years and I must say I have beautiful skin so I knew the dark spot correct would be ok so I got samples and after using the product for a while my dark spots started to fade

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reduces redness and sun soots I received a 7 day sample of this. I applied it to freshly cleansed problem areas morning and night. Let dry before applying other products and make sure to use sunscreen! The samples lasted more than 7 days due to spot use. Sun spots on cheekbones are slightly lighter compared to photos I took when starting use. They also are less well defined. More importantly redness - likely due to sun, pregnancy hormones and inflammation - right down the center of my face is noticeably reduced which has had a bigger effect on my overall appearance. I have olive tan skin which tends to be a bit dry and a bit sensitive and live in a northern state with harsh winters and scorching hot summers. The Results are more visible if you spot treat than put on your whole face. I recommend trying this product. Nordstrom sells a half ounce bottle which is a nice option for those who want to try it without a big investment.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No noticeable difference I had used a drugstore product on a troublesome age spot, which has made it less noticeable. I am such a fan of Kiehls that I thought I would double down with this one. Sadly, no improvement after one whole bottle and sunscreen were used daily. I also tried to “double” down with a Vitamin C serum since some online research shows that help. But no luck. Before and after photos included.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Half Bottle Use I've used more than half of this, and I do not see much difference since I first began using it. I still use them as my routine but no visible difference. Hope to see some changes at the end of the bottle though.
