Rated 1 out of 5 by from Overhyped, overpriced and disappointing I wish i could give it 0/5 instead of 1/5.... this is such an overhyped product. Used it for 9 months, twice a day and didn’t see ANY results.. i stopped using it eventually and i’m extremely disappointed. I naturally have a dry skin and take good care of it. Had a few dark spots on my chin area and on my cheek, and with all the “hype” i figured it would make my skin better. I don not recommend it at all! And im still looking for a serum to get rid of my pigmentations. Save your money, and avoid this.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Skins smooth but still covered in red marks I bought this 3 months ago and have been using it every day and night in attempts to clear my skin of red post acne marks but have seen very little results. My skin is smoother in texture and this makes covering my red marks easier with make up. I felt like the product started making my skin tingle less as time went on which I thought meant that my skin was getting used to the product however after doing some research I found out some of the ingredients in the serum are uv sensitive and react with sunlight and are less effective which sucks because the bottle is clear and not protected in current packaging

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For oily skin, minor dark spots, post acne marks. Good product. If you have oily skin, this is a good product. If you expect this can eliminate your dark spots dramatically, this could be the worst product. If you have post acne marks, try this product. This serum contains hydroxypropyl tetrahydropyrantriol, which means it doesn’t only treat “dark spot” but also repairs your skin( also explains why it’s kind of expensive). I always read ingredient lists before I purchase. This particular serum actually has great ingredients. I can tell that it works as I expect. Vitamin C + hydroxypropyl tetrahydropyrantriol + salicylic acid=great combination. And I am a male customer. *** if you have many visible and serious dark spots, I recommend laser treatments.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing results I bought this product as I developed a small dark 'age spot' on my face. I can cover with makeup, but this serum has really helped to fade it. I use it all over my face now as a night-time treat, and I wake up with glowing skin. The age spot hasn't gone altogether but it is noticeably less and I feel less self-conscious about it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dont buy it Its expensive and it literally didn’t do anything to my dark spots. Waste of money!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No good for age spots! I have been using this twice a day since November, with sunsceen to follow (applied after about 30 mins to enable this product to work) but it has had absolutely zero effect on my age spots. I'm really disappointed, it might be an okay (though expensive) serum, but if bought specifically as an age spot treatment it's a waste of money. Sorry, Kiehls!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Doesn’t work I bought this entire line to get rid of some hyperpigmentation from cystic acne scarring. I decided to give it some time to work, since most skincare doesn’t give immediate results. It’s been 6 months and I see only a slight difference between my photos from then to now. I’m at the end of the bottle, and man this product did nothing to help reduce my uneven skin tone. I’m pretty sure the money I spent for the cleanser, toner, serum, and moisturizer was money down the drain. It sucks because I’m usually such a big fan of kiehls, but this just fell short.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Was Surprised It Actually Works I received a complimentary sample when I placed an order with Kiehl's. I was skeptical, but gave it a try. I patted on my visible dark spots and around my mouth only. The sample lasted about three weeks. I couldn't believe my eyes at how my dark spots were diminished with consistent use. While they haven't disappeared completely, they have lightened considerably. I am now planning on purchasing a bottle.
