Rated 1 out of 5 by from Zero difference made As much as I love just about any products by Kiehl’s, I am sorry to report that this one made zero difference after nine weeks of daily use. Very expensive water as far as my sun damage facial are concerned.
Date published: 2019-10-06
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Absolutely useless and a waste of money For the price tag, you’d expect that there’d be even a slight difference. I’ve used the ENTIRE bottle only to find every dark spot to still remain on my face. These are dark spots that have been caused from breakouts which are much easier to treat than hereditary pigmentation but NO, this solution did nothing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Did not reduce dark spots I have used the dark spot solution for about four months now. It is very nice to use in the sense that it sinks in quickly and makes my skin feel hydrated, and it is great under spf50. However, unfortunately it did absolutely nothing for my dark spots. I was not expecting them to disappear entirely but was hoping they would be reduced, which was not the case. Considering the cost of this product this has been quite disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I was AMAZED! I have never found anything that would fade my sun spots, but this product did. I could tell a difference in only two weeks. I am a happily shocked and satisfied customer! Thank you!
Date published: 2019-09-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent! It is a very good product. I bought this product one month ago and i am really happy
Date published: 2019-09-08
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not worth it I have been using this product since over 2 months now and I hardly see a difference. I have been using it with sunscreen as suggested. The texture of the serum is good and it worked fairly well in lightening the spots which was already not so bright. But it made absolutely no difference to post acne marks. It’s still there as it is!! For the money that you pay this product is so not worth it
Date published: 2019-08-22
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing! I had some scars from some old spots, and put this on last night and this morning it is 80% gone! It also has salicylic acid, so I feel like it cleaned out my pores too. I put 4 stars because this is the only type of 'lightening' or 'evening discoloration' product I have used...I am not sure if there are better ones out there for a more affordable price. HOWEVER this product surely does work for acne scars
Date published: 2019-08-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I brought this a month ago after reading lots of reviews about how good it was.... and I was not disappointed... I have lots of scars from acne and upon using this product they have really lightened them and nearly disappeared.. I’m now on my second bottle and will continue to use this. Give this product ago you will not be disappointed.

Can this be used under eye's ?

Asked by: AuntD
Hi there! We do not suggest using our Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution in the eye area. The skin surrounding your eyes much more sensitive than the rest of your body and requires special care. We hope you can try our Midnight Recovery Eye treatment instead! Our replenishing eye cream for dark circles and puffiness helps restore the eye area for a smoother appearance. Infused with Butcher’s Broom Extract, Lavender Essential Oil and Evening Primrose Oil, our formula helps smooth and restore the eye area. Here is some more info: http://tinyurl.com/yyhtojey We hope you can try it out!

Use with other oil product

I have been using the midnight repair oil, please instructions to use this serum, can I use it after the oil?
Asked by: AndreaHz
Hi there! Our Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution is a targeted treatment and should be used before our Midnight Recovery Concentrate. We hope you love the results!

Are you supposed to massage in or just leave on surface of upper lip (letting it absorb in)

Asked by: Kappy
We suggest using a few drops our Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution and gently tapping and massaging it into your skin until fully absorbed!
