Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product This truly has been a lifesaver for me. It works amazingly well, but you have to give it time. When you look back at yourself a year from now, you'll be like OMG.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No effects at all I have been using it since last month. Twice per day. But I have not seen any reduction of my dark spots. A pity because I am big fan of the brand. But this time I am totally disappointed :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made an online account just to write this review! I absolutely love this product! I have been using the sample sizes on my face for 2 weeks, and my skin is changing big time, it's worked like magic for me. I have been using it to correct fresh acne scars, i'm glad i caught them early and i'm sure that is part of the reason it has been so effective but I am not joking when i say I'm excited to wake up every morning and see the progress from the night before! I also have very sensitive skin to breakouts and am very happy that this product had no negative side effects

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Satisfied! I purchased this product 2 months ago and have been using it religiously day and night. I have definitely seen a big improvement in the dark spots that were left by acne along my cheek bones. I just re-purchased another bottle and will continue using.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from it met the expectation! I have a only acne scar that had been on my check for 4+ months now, my goal was to get rid of it as much as I can. Did my research and read all the reviews online about this product, I was skeptical since quite many people said this doesn't work at all after 2 months. I gave it a try and actually for 2 weeks now I saw the result I wanted to see, the discoloration seemed so much better and it did work and meet my expectation! The texture of this serum is very lightweight and I used twice a day, day and night. Kiehl's never let me down and this Dermatologist solutions is now my fav collection in this brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I am on my second bottle now, so obviously it's working! The key is, to be consistent (like all good things, it takes time) and always use sunscreen! It's pointless if you don't do both of those things. I've been using this for about a year now and my dark spots are practically gone and my hyperpigmentation has reduced significantly. Safe to say, this will be a permanent in my skincare routine for a long time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 30 Days I have been using this product for 30 days now and I can't see any difference at all. I wish it worked but, it doesn't. I am a Kiehl's fan and use many products, I would recommend, but this is not one of them.

Noncomedogenic

Hello, I’m just wondering if this product in noncomedogenic as that’s the only product type I can use.
Asked by: Cait1
The term non-comedogenic indicates that the product has a low potential for clogging pores. The presence or absence of oil in a product does not mean a product will or will not be non-comedogenic. Not all products are tested for non-comedogenicity. If the non-comedogenic claim does not appear on the product, it is not an indication the product is comedogenic.
