Clearly Corrective Brightening & Exfoliating Daily Cleanser is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 139.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from it's the face cleaner i've been looking for. i never tried the prior formulation, so i can't compare. but for me, this is perhaps my perfect face cleanser. it foams just the right amount. has just the right amount of exfoliating ingredients so that it feels properly cleansed but not overly so. my skin always looks bright and fresh after i use it. and, as someone who is 48, with aging skin, who has hit perimenopause, it has helped immensely with my dry skin. it was getting to the point where i was having so much dead skin on my cheeks and chin that if i rubbed my face, skin would come off on my fingers. no more since using this product. and my skin looks less dull and ragged.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite! I love this stuff. I use it once daily. It's the perfect amount of scrubby for daily use. A little goes a long way, which I also love.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Miss the old formula While this new formula does get my skin squeaky clean, I miss the “scrubbiness” of the old one. There is very little exfoliating material in this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Literally Brighter smoother completion! First off I’d like to say I’m a huge face/skin product junkie and have used everything from the most expensive to the up and up brands at Target. This cleanser is hands down the BEST I’ve ever used. I’m 47 and boy have I been through more cleansers than mascara (btw it removes mascara in seconds) in my lifetime. This cleansers does everything it says and more. First, the abrasives are key. Anytime I’ve had a facial or treatment it’s always been about scraping of the dead. Microdermabrasion, fraxel, laser treatmentsfor laser rejuvenation, laser resurfacing, microdermabrasion, botox (botulinum toxins), dermal fillers, chemical peels among others. We’re talking heat and rocks to simplify. Since the day I started using this not only did I notice a huge difference in the appearance of my skin but all those around me too. My friends all got one for a Christmas gift. We love it! I personally use mine with an additional charcoal abrasive make up remover sponge for deeper exfoliating. My skin is bright and clear for my serums and oils to absorb instantly and work better. Fine lines are gone. I can actually tell cell regeneration is happening. Skin is skin. You want that dead skin off your elbows and knees as well as your face. Understandably each area needs a specific abrasive. The professionals and chemistry used to provide this effect with Kiehls is spot on! They are highly educated about our needs. I’ve saved money not having to do as many facials I’ve done in the past so the price of this product is pennies compared. Teenagers think I’m 30! Love love love. Thank you for my glowing brighter skin! Remember no pain no gain!! Ha! ~Melissa

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Physical exfoliants shouldn’t be encouraged I went to my local store and informed the rep that I was looking for a new cleanser. She recommended this one. I’ve liked her recommendations in the past so without looking at the packaging too much I decided to give it a try. It’s a physical exfoliant. ALMOST ALL skincare professionals who are truly educated will advise against a physical exfoliant. Especially for someone who suffers from hyperpigmentation like myself. Physical exfoliants cause microtears in the skin likely to aid in the production of more skin discoloration. So the fact that Kiehl’s, a skincare company so highly regarded, has employees promoting this product shocked me. While I understand why it’s in their product armory, people like why they like regardless of science so make the product for them so they don’t go elsewhere—don’t encourage its usage. It damages skin.

Does this product contain micro-plastics?

I am concerned about plastic pollution and am trying to avoid using products that contain plastic microbeads. I know this product contains natural exfoliants, but can someone confirm whether or not it contains plastic microbeads?
Asked by: KathrynC
Yes - ACRYLATES COPOLYMER - is a micro-bead plastic used for abrasion.

Are you going to go back to the old formula?

I was about to order more face wash but I see you changed it and the reviews are horrible. I have sensitive skin and even within the Kiehls line have issues. I hope you will be changing back.
Asked by: cgreen

Is this safe to use to wash around eye area?

Asked by: EliDominguez

Does this cleanser foam up, in addition to exfoliating-- like the Clearly Corrective Purifying Facial Cleanser?

Asked by: Anonymous
The clearly corrective brightening & exfoliating daily cleaner does have a light foam. I highly recommend it.
