Clearly Corrective Brightening & Exfoliating Daily Cleanser is rated 2.4 out of 5 by 50.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product blows away my previous cleanser! I feel so bad for the folks who had great experiences with the prior product. I’m fairly new to the Kiehl’s product line, but I have to say that I absolutely love this product! My skin is very sensitive, so I’ve shelled out a lot of cash over the years trying various products, and the product I used (most recently) before this one cost more than twice as much and didn’t work half as well. Not only does this product clean my skin without creating a red, splotchy face, but it really does brighten my skin...to the point where I bumped into some old friends who told me that I look much younger! Needless to say, I’m a huge fan of this cleanser! To those of you who may not be as enamored, hang in there and keep trying some other Kiehl’s options!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from THIS...JUST NO I just can’t...is it not beyond obvious that this was a terrible idea by now, just look at the reviews. I also USED to be a fan of Kiehls, and spent very good money on the CC Foam cleanser as well(as majority of commenters). Discontinuing without warning is just disrespectful to loyal customers as myself for the past 7-8yrs. I have invested in you and my skin and am disappointed that now I must find something new. Please continue to s/w the senior management in the company about the disappointment many many customers feel.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Threw it away The Clearly Corrective Brightening collection used to have a product called *Skin Brightening Exfoliator.* When I purchased from a retail location, I thought maybe they just changed the name to *Brightening & Exfoliating Daily Cleanser.* Sadly, no. The formula has also changed, and the texture of the product makes it impossible to squeeze out of the bottle without making a mess (think gooey, melted cheese). And forget rubbing your fingertips together to apply to your face! When I thew it away, I squeezed it out of the bottle so I could at least recycle the bottle... only to have the mess sit like a wad on top of my drain and clog it. Too bad because the previous formula was great... in the month or so since I was forced to switch to a different brand, my skin clarity has obviously suffered and the red splotchiness on my face is back.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not buy I thought the bad reviews were maybe not true and decided to try the new one out but i was extremely disappointed. After religiously using the old one i thought they couldnt have replaced the old one with something worse but they did. This new cleanser does nothing for my skin. I might as well not even wash it it really does NOTHING for my skin. The old one was amazing so clean and refreshing and made my skin look so bright. I miss it so much. I have never felt this way about a product so i am just so sad. I hope the old one comes back PLEASE. dont waste your money on the new one. take my advice!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed I am a flight attendant and the purifying face wash was the only one that suited my ever sensitive dehydrated skin I recommended it to all of my colleagues, my skin was so much nicer and dewy no breakouts just a radiant complexion I still have the old face wash, using it very sparsely now because I know there will never be another one in the future!! I used to go to every duty free in Australia to always pick one up and always ended up walking out with a bag full of new products to try. Since its been discontinued I don't even want to look in the shop direction anymore. Very disheartened if I knew before I'd have stocked up on them. Kiehls you've lost your most excited customer. :( :( :( :( :( :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm a fan I have very sensitive skin so I have to be careful. I miss the old cleanser because I was used to it. But so far this one makes my skin happy, and clear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My skin looks amazing! I’m a huge fan of this product. I use it on my face and neck three times a week and my skin glows! Highly recommend!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great daily exfoliator I've never known an exfoliator I could use every day without my skin suffering dryness or irritation. This one is A-OK with my face! And in the 6 months since I've been using this, I've had significantly fewer breakouts.

Does this product contain micro-plastics?

I am concerned about plastic pollution and am trying to avoid using products that contain plastic microbeads. I know this product contains natural exfoliants, but can someone confirm whether or not it contains plastic microbeads?
Asked by: KathrynC
Yes - ACRYLATES COPOLYMER - is a micro-bead plastic used for abrasion.

Are you going to go back to the old formula?

I was about to order more face wash but I see you changed it and the reviews are horrible. I have sensitive skin and even within the Kiehls line have issues. I hope you will be changing back.
Asked by: cgreen

Is this safe to use to wash around eye area?

Asked by: EliDominguez

Does this cleanser foam up, in addition to exfoliating-- like the Clearly Corrective Purifying Facial Cleanser?

Asked by: Anonymous
The clearly corrective brightening & exfoliating daily cleaner does have a light foam. I highly recommend it.
