Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it Ive been using this kiehls clearly corrective dark spot solution for a month and I notice that the dark spot in my skin becomes lighter. It doesnt feel sticky at all and the serum absorbs so quickly.
Date published: 2020-06-28
Rated 3 out of 5 by from I really want to love this. I gave it 3 stars because I'm sure this product worked great for others. However I found that it was breaking me out more than what I already had. I have pretty clear skin except for a zit every now and then. Although the zit leaves a pesky scar for like a month before another reappears! I was really hoping this product would do the job but it did nothing for me! Also its very pricey to other products that I've tried that claims to do similar things!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Beauty Secret I love the smell of it and how its not greasy. My face looked brighter and new after one day of usuage. As the days went on any blemishes I had faded away. I would recommend to all my friends. I would make this a permanent staple to my beauty routine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from subtle improvement I have been using this product twice a day for almost two months. I had some active acne when I began using it, and those places have healed without leaving any spots. I have noticed a subtle improvement in my overall skin tone. I am Asian with medium skin tone. I like the consistency of the serum, and its not sticky or greasy. I would recommend this product.

I know that sometimes hydroquinone uses different names? Could you please verify if your product contains or not hydroquinone? I am highly allergic to it, and would like to try your serum.
