Clearly Corrective Brightening & Exfoliating Daily Cleanser is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 150.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fragile, faulty packaging The formula is smooth with a great, more abrasive exfoliator. I like that a pea-sized amount is enough to exfoliate and cleanse my face, neck and chest. I've purchased this 3 times and would give this product 5 stars if it wasn't for the faulty packaging. IF YOU DROP THIS, IT WILL BREAK. The cap has shattered on me all three times after falling off the bathroom sink or after being dropped in the shower. Given the high price point, I expect more durable packaging.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant, gentle cleanser This is a great product. I got over-busy in the run up to Christmas and forgot to re-order so had to do without using it properly for a few weeks. Big mistake! My skin was not the same without it. Now back on track after just a few uses. Phew!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from New formula is rubbish! Bring back the old formula-it was the best cleanser/exfoliator ever! Worth every penny! The consistency of this new formula is like gel and it doesn't exfoliate at all. Complete waste of money.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bring back old formula This new formula really is not good. the old one was amazing and judging from reviews I am not the only one who thought this. Will this feedback actually get to the formulations team as this need to be addressed asap.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from BRING BACK OLD FORMULA! Can you see per the reviews? It was perfect and once you changed it, we don’t like it. So change it back! The old formula was literally the best cleanser i’d ever used in my life. Someone needs to copy the old formula and release an amazing cleanser lol

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Caused extra hyperpigmentation I bought this few weeks ago, definitely would not purchase again, has cause severe irritation on my skin. My cheeks have become congested and full of rash. So annoyed and disappointed at the money wasted

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I miss old formula I’ve been using this for several years and I have one bottle of old formula left. I use old formula in the morning and new one in the evening. Old formula gives me more squeaky clean feel and new one is just ... ok. I wish kiehls kept old formula and just created different option for cleanser instead of changing the formula. Which one of your cleanser is the closest to old formula?

Should you use this to exfoliate every day?

I love this product, but I hear that it is not good to exfoliate every day. I feel like this is a very gentle exfoliating face wash and did not leave my skin feeling raw but should you exfoliate using this every day if you were to use this twice a day? Or is it better to use this 2-3 times a week rather than 2x per day?
Asked by: Annabell
Hi there! Thank you for your interest in our Clearly Corrective Brightening & Exfoliating Daily Cleanser. This product is can be used morning and night. We hope you found this information helpful!

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
Hi there, thanks for your inquiry! We do not suggest using the Clearly Corrective Brightening & Exfoliating Daily Cleanser around your eye area as it has not been tested for the sensitive eye area. You would apply a small amount of facial cleanser to clean fingertips and gently massage onto face using upward, circular motions. We hope this helps and that you can use our products with great results!
