Rated 4 out of 5 by from I feels like it’s working I started using this product a week or so ago. I can definitely feel the citrus acid working on my skin. Seems my black spots on my nose is improving. Will carry on using it and definitely recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yeay, it works I really love this product, It really works on my face, reduce the dark spot and correct discoloration. I usually use it with sunblock in the morning, and at night with Midnight Recovery Concentrate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works I’ll start with - I’m a very skeptical person and I typically don’t believe in products like this. However, this product absolutely worked! It took 6 months of very generous applications to work but my skin is so much more even than before. I still have some left in the bottle but the improvements I’ve seen, and my friends have seen, are worth it.... I definitely recommend. And I don’t recommend products very often.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really reduced care of my acne scaring Just finished a bottle and I can now say this product has made a substantial difference on my acne scaring. I had a few breakouts that left some scaring on my forehead and cheeks and got this product in hopes to eliminate it. It worked extremely well, I would repurchase a 1000 times, it completely eliminated my forehead scaring and cheeks is barely there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Purchase Ever! I am on my second bottle already within 1 year. Very effective working, I have acne scars problem, not much dark spot but a lot of redness. They are fading away, not very fast but I can tell the effectiveness since I use this. Would recommend to others.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Saw zero difference Saw no difference after several weeks of use. Very disappointed as I do love other Kiehl’s products. Now stuck with a mostly full bottle. This was not a free sample either. It was a purchase. Can’t seem to correct that on the review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from takes time but well worth the wait! After coming off my contraceptive pill last year I started getting pretty severe hormonal acne which led to lots of dark spots all over my chin and cheeks. Safe to say, i've been using this for 3 months and 90% of my dark spots have gone! Worth a go, i'd say!
Date published: 2019-10-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good! I am using this as recommended with the face wash, moisturiser that doubles up as a sleep mask 2 times a week, the plain moisturiser and sun screen for the sun and dirty air. I have been using it for the last 2/3 months and have started to see results. You have to use it 2 times daily and use all the other products to really see progress. PS I am Black African so finding anything that works and is also formulated for our beautiful melanin is hard. I will also be starting regular treatments from my local beauty spa to make sure I am on top of my skin care.
