Key Ingredients

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.

Before and After Using our Dark Spot Corrector

  • Dark Spots Color by -39%
  • Hyperpigmentation by -49%

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Half Bottle Use I've used more than half of this, and I do not see much difference since I first began using it. I still use them as my routine but no visible difference. Hope to see some changes at the end of the bottle though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gotta Use It Correctly!! I am stunned by all the bad reviews about this product. His dark spot solution TOTALLY WORKS! I am black and have medium brown, sensitive skin. The key to success and positive results with this product is YOU MUST USE IT CORRECTLY! I was given excellent instructions by a Kiehls consultant in-store. You must apply the product to a damp face. A little goes a long way! Just put a dot size of product on each desk spot or a pea size to a particular trouble area. Then rub it in profusely with your fingers - and I mean really it in. You should let it dry in before putting moisturizer on. This MUST be done Morning and Night... every single day!! You have to be very strict about doing this every day. I have used this periodically over the years and always had excellent results. You must be patient because you won’t see results until at least 3 weeks of proper, regular, daily use! Be patient and your skin will clear up. Trust me!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Evens out dark spots on dark skin I suffer from psuedofolliculites barbae when I shave. It took about two years before friends noticed, but the improvement is obvious when side by side images of before and after I started using the serum are compared.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of money I have used it for almost 4 months but have not seen any results. I waited to see if any of my dark spots will fade or go away but it is exactly the same. Read good reviews about this and bought this expensive product and waited patiently to see some good results but very disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't work for me I used a little more than half of the product and it hasn't made any difference in 4 months. My dark spot are still there, I combined it with, and without Victim C serum both didn't work. I'm very disappointed, this is money wasted. :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works I got this product solely on reviews, hoping that the reviews would be accurate. Yes, it works!! I’m not sure why I didn’t listen to the one review and take a picture of before/after but I forgot. Let’s say I got a huge bump on my nose out of no where that left an not so flattering dark mark. I was so self conscious this morning because I've never gotten a bump there. I started using this product over a month ago and I see a huge difference already. I try to use it day/night.
