Frequently Asked Questions

Answers to Your Frequently Asked Questions

Did You Know?

What Causes Dark Spots?

Did You Know?
Melanin is what gives hair, eyes, and skin their color, and dictates whether areas of your skin may have dark spots, discoloration, or hyperpigmentation. Their appearance may be due to sun damage (sun spots), inflammation (often a result of eczema, psoriasis, or acne), and hormones—sometimes seen in pregnant women. Dark spots and hyperpigmentation are common, and potent formulas like Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Corrector and brightening serum are an effective way to treat them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Miracle! I’ve been using this product for my dark circle and it always makes it light! So I had a black eye and I decided to put it all around the bruising over night. When I woke up my black eye faded away! It was barely visible . Next day I did the same and now it left! Kiehl's Clearly Corrective™ Dark Spot Solution Kiehl's Clearly Corrective™ Dark Spot Solution

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it Absolutely love this product. A little goes a long way and my skin feels much healthier after consistent use. As with all Kiehls products, it's on the pricey side, but they are great at providing samples if you're not ready to commit to purchasing right away. Staff is always very nice and helpful!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Didn’t do anything:( I had some dark spots on my face so I bought this and I was quite excited to try it out. After about five weeks of using it, I didn’t notice any difference in my dark spots and they still looks the same. The only reason I gave this two stars is because of cute packaging.
