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 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!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nope, it is not as good as the old formula I left a review a few months ago (which appears to be deleted), saying I was glad I read the reviews before buying, because if the formula is not the same, and people are saying it doesn't work as well as it used to, then I won't be buying it anymore. I was disappointed because, like others say, it was a fantastic product that used to work like magic. Well ,Kiehl's reached out and sent me a free tube to try out to be sure, which was very nice of them. So, after trying it for awhile now, when I get an occasional blemish from small to big, unfortunately I do have to say, it is just not as effective as the old formula. For some blemishes it works well, but for others, where the old formula zapped them good, the new formula may reduce them slightly, but then the blemish hangs around for weeks just looking kind of red and not reducing at all...almost like it might have gone away on its own better if I had not used anything at all...but now it is just stuck there. So, while I appreciate the free try, I wish Kiehl's would just bring back the old stuff which was more versatile.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well for me! Not sure why there are so many negative reviews on this formulation, as compared to old. Yes, it is a beige tinted translucent gel but I use it at night and it dries quickly. I spread it around my chin/jawline especially for hormonally monthly acne, and the next morning everything is much calmer. I really notice when I do not use it I get more flare ups. It certainly keeps things calmer. I don't have black heads, so not sure how effective there. But great for those hot lumps I get, and white heads around the chin and jaw. Perhaps if you have more all over face acne this process would be a pain but it certainly works great for my needs. I use even though I have serums underneath and still does a good job.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not the same I had a old bottle of this product - from 2015 - I had a need to use it again recently and it worked well, then ordered a replacement in may of 2017 - it does not work the same as the previous bottle - looks like the material changed for the worse - will not buy again :(

Rated 2 out of 5 by from New Formula Not As Effective One more customer who does not like the new formulation of this product as well as the old. I imagine the new formula is cheaper to make. Unfortunately it shows. This product used to make my breakouts vanish in a few days. Now it seems to do almost nothing at all. Bring back the old formula at a higher price if necessary. At least it worked!

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.
