Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing product Smells really nice. It reduced my breakouts a great deal
Date published: 2019-07-25
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a good product I Bought this thinking this will be good as i like most products by Kiehls but this product made my skin so dry just after one use and it didn't do anything for my pimples. I regret buying this product as it's just another product with salicylic acid, you are better off buying a cheaper product that will do the job.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from When I first used this product I loved it and then when I brought it again I found it very drying and my skin had a terrible reaction to it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best moisturiser I’ve been using this moisturer for a couple of months now and my skin hasn’t looked better. My tones more even, my pores are reduced and my skin looks lifted and brighter.
Date published: 2019-04-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works I would never normally spend this sort of money on skincare but when I had a massive breakout on holiday I bought this in desperation. After the first night of applying I could see a reduction in the redness and soreness. I've been using it ever since about every other day. I still get small dry spots but for over 2 months now I haven't had a single large wet angry spot, where normally I would get at least one a week and I am really amazed. Will definitely be buying again and i would say it's worth giving a go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Acne Treatment Product In the last 6 months of using Kiehl's products, especially this one, it helped me flattened most of my acne. The product is really worth time and money. Shoutout to the sales clerk, Jerome Labastida, at the SM North Edsa who really helped me a lot in choosing the right product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I first bought this product over a year ago after suffering a serious acne breakout. I had tried literally everything possible and nothing fixed it. I bought this on the off chance and first used it three times a day and my spots did start to minimise. I used my Vanity Planet spin brush (which I also recommend) day and night and then used this cream afterwards. Cleanse, moisturise and then this magical cream. I also cut diary out of my diet as that was one of the main causes for my type of spots. Honestly, nothing worked until this, it worked wonders for me - thank you Kiehls x

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent Acne Product I like this acne lotion but it can be rough on sensitive skin. I would use this product a few times a week at night if your skin is sensitive. If your skin can take it use daily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Acne potion I bought this a month ago and I have suffered from moderate adult acne since I was 20 with not much luck product wise with my skin! Tried so many spot treatments that claim they work but in fact are just a little bit rubbish! This cream has changed my life and skincare routine, my breakouts have literally reduced to the point where I was completely spot free for over a week and anyone with acne knows that is really hard to achieve! I remember just a few months ago crying because I had such bad breakouts! Tips for using; if I have a bad breakout I use it all over my face and then apply another moisturiser to the dryer parts of my face. When I want extra moisture I put one or two drops of facial oil on the blemish cream and mix them together before applying. It’s not only improved my acne but it’s changed my complexion completely and made my skin beautiful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product works!!!! I bought the breakout control blemish but initially it just made my skin look thirsty as I was using it with some other products, but then reduced the products Clearasil scrub with it... and BOOM! within a day, my skin cleared up, this product is priceless (for me) love it! I must mention I use the Calendula facial wash as part of them skin care steps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what is says... On my second bottle, tried it after suggestion from the Kiehls assistant. Always get hormonal breakouts. Been using on “T” zone and works wonders, skin clear and not had any breakouts. Also started using on full face and has definatley evened my skin. Shame it’s often out of stock..please don’t discontinue this product. It’s been a great find. I’m now a Kiehls convert and use many of their products. Good value too...lasts ages.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works! It prevents breakouts and is a must-have in my skin care regimen!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Results with Continued Use I mistakenly wore a headband during a series of heavy workouts which caused an severe breakout across my forehead. I don't have acne-prone skin so I wasn't sure where to start. At the advice of an in-store representative I bought the facial lotion over the spot treatment as I was looking to treat a large area. The facial lotion is very thin and light and spreads well. It dries very quickly which is great when I am layering multiple Kiehl's products. It saves a tremendous amount of time. After about a week of daily use I noticed improvement of the redness and size. After two weeks I noticed the breakout bumps started to disappear. What I didn't expect is for the lotion to improve the texture and appearance of my entire forehead. I began using the lotion all over my face and I am SO happy with it. After a month's use, I feel this has been one of the most effective Kiehl's product in improving my skin texture and minimizing small bumps.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It's a No from me... I bought this about 2 months ago, and at first it was incredible. My skin was so soft and smooth; my pores had virtually disappeared! This continued for about 6 weeks, until I used the product at night, and the next morning my whole face was flaking and dry! I loaded up on moisturiser but I dried up very quickly during the day. I personally think it was the salicylic acid concentration as my face gets very dry and flaky after I use it. Nonetheless, I give it the credit of making my skin smooth, however I will not be buying this again.
Date published: 2018-02-13
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Decent product, but weird smell The lotion works pretty well, it has a light weight feel that doesn't leave my skin feeling heavy or caked. However, there's a slightly off putting smell that I haven't found in other salicylic acid based acne products. If it weren't for the smell, I'd recommend it.
Date published: 2017-12-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Everyday Lotion I have adult cystic acne as well as very oily skin so most products don't work well for me, but this lotion has become part of my daily routine. I have also noticed less oil production/shine on my face after using this lotion. Love this product!
Date published: 2016-12-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for oily or acne prone skin I bought this on a whim because I had been struggling with acne for a while. After only a few days of using not only did my acne improve but my skin felt so much more resilient and supple. Granted I am using along with other great kiehls products such as the hydroplumping and skin rescuer but I added this after I had been using those for a while and noticed a huge improvement in the texture of my skin after using this. The smell is different but I actually like it, it's kind of a botanical smell. If you're struggling with acne I really recommend this, acne will go away quickly and heal well. Also drop by your health food store and pick up sulphur tablets...acne be gone forever!
Date published: 2016-10-25
Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good I have slightly oily skin and tend to get localized breakouts quit easily, especially in the summer. I've been using this for about a month now and so far no breakouts! I do like the fact that you can hardly feel it on your skin after putting it on and a little dab goes a long way. I'm very happy with it so far.
Date published: 2016-10-09
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't work for me I started having a bunch of small acne on my checks and my chin especially so I decided to purchase this product. I've been using this product literally since when it first came out (about two weeks or so). The first week of using it was great! I liked the texture. It was light, not sticky, and absorbs super fast but I wouldn't consider this a spot treatment like what the lady who sold it to me advertised because my acne did not go away in a day or even two. I did not see little improvements until after 5-6 days of using it. I was glad to see it working. But it didn't last long. This product is also advertised to prevent future acne from coming back. WRONG. Because about 4-5 days more of using it after I started seeing improvements on my skin, my acne came back and they are worst than ever. It wasn't worth it. Will be returning this product. PS: for some reason when I'm trying to post my review, it's saying that I received a free sample of this product but no I did not receive a sample of this product. It was too new when I got it that they didn't even have any samples at the store. I bought this on full price and full size.

After using this product, the product gone patchy and peeling. Should i rinse after using? Because i cant apply my moisturizer afterward.

Asked by: Clara Tania Sanbudhi
I don't think you should apply moisturizer after using this. Because this is the "light" moisturizer for treating acne. Try to warm up the lotion first with your fingers before applying it, and a little goes along the way. I sometimes have that "peeling" reaction if I apply it too much. Or you might use face oil first before applying this to prevent patchy and peeling. Hope this helps.

Can I use this product with Age Defender Eye Repair, Midnight Recovery Concentrate & Ultra-Facial Moisturiser? And In what sequence if yes?

Asked by: Adrian Tan Wai Sheng
Adrian, I can only tell you what I know and do myself, not the "official" answer. I use a spot acne treatment and I use the recovery concentrate. I use a different eye and moisturizer. My routine is eyes first, then acne, then concentrate, then moisturizer. As this breakout control appears to be an allover lotion I would probably apply recovery concentrate first. This allows it to really soak in. Oh, and I love love love the concentrates both day and night. I will also add that I've tried this acne treatment and it did not work well for me. I really love their blue herbal line, though. I started using Kiehl's in my late twenties and used to use the blue herbal moisturizer as well. Now, I am in my forties and moisturizing is more of a priority so I only use the blue herbal spot treatment. Hope this helps! Happy moisturizing.
