Blue Herbal Spot Treatment is rated 2.6 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Works For New Blemishes While this product does work on new pimples. It does nothing for correcting blemishes and dark spots. I have been using this product for 2 months. It dries my pimples out but I still get dark spots and the cream does not lighten them whatsoever. I actually use aloe on my face when I have a new pimple and it’s much more effective in preventing me to blemish. I will not reinvest in this one it runs out.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Formula has changed Having used this product for quite a while, I bought my latest tube expecting the usual formula. However, it has changed from a clear gel to a beige one and it is not nearly as effective as it used to be. The old formula worked amazingly well and so I was extremely disappointed to discover that the new formula seems to have little to no effect on my skin. Just wish there was some sort of indication on the website or packaging that the formula is different. A waste of money, to be honest.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from New formula no longer works I've been using this Spot Treatment regularly for 7-8 years to awesome results. Last time I purchased it was my first time using the new formula. No complaints about texture or appearance. Product just no longer works for my skin, which is a shame as the old recipe was brilliant. Have heard similar feedback from friends. Would gladly take some backstock of the old product if floating around!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I’d pass it up ... I have to agree with the other reviews that said its not as good or as effective as before .. I totally agree. Why they messed with a good formula- who knows. The new formula is junk. It doesn’t do anything. I used to swear by this product, but no longer do. The coloration is weird. The price - pass on the product. I recommend to look for an alternative product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from why change a great thing? I used Blue Herbal Spot Treatment for about 15 years. It was absolutely a miracle worker, wiping out the occasional "spots" I'd get, especially during NYC's hot, dirty summers. I even got my product-adverse husband hooked on it. It worked. Well. So why did Kiehl's (I mean, L'Oreal!!) change the formula? It's brownish now, not clear as before, and is not very effective. I've switched to Neutrogena, which bums me out - I love Kiehl's but am not going to keep spending twice as much for a product that doesn't work.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not impressed I usually butythis product in US,always found my spots and coldsores have gone within days so I loved it. Bought this time in the UK and not at all impressed as spots are still there after a week, same as a coldsore which has been treated for nearly 2 weeks yet still there Obviously there are different ingredients as the US version is clear but this is cloudy coloured. Godo old EU laws at it again by banning certain ingredients in cosmetic items

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed I was extremely happy with the old formula, this new formula does not work as effective as the other one. If the company go back to the old one, I and many people would be really really happy!!!

Is this the original formula?

Asked by: Anonymous

Has the formula for your Blue Herbal Spot Treatment changed? Someone said it is a brownish color now, instead of the perfectly clear colorless that I usually buy.
