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.

Before and After Using our Dark Spot Corrector

Before and after

Kiehl’s brightening serum and dark spot corrector is incredibly effective, with results showing a brighter, more even skin tone. Consistent application of our serum for dark spots showed improvements in everything from hyperpigmentation to sun spots. Regular use of this dark spot correcting serum is clinically-proven* to help visibly reduce:

  • Dark Spots Color by -39%
  • Hyperpigmentation by -49%
  • Post-Acne Marks by -27%

*Based on a 12-week clinical study of 17 women with all skin types presented with mild to moderate severity of attributes, including post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't believe it worked as well as it did I got a free sample of this a few months ago and have been using it for a small scar/blemish on my leg. I honestly couldn't believe it worked as well as it did. I would say after maybe 6 or so applications, the dark spot was noticeably lighter and beginning to go away. Purchasing my own bottle to continue to use!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It does work! This product does work. But, it would be much easier to apply with a roller. The solution is light and feels awkward to apply with a dropper.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not work I bought this over one year ago, despite reviews that claimed it doesn't work. I should have listened to the users. I do not recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A miracle product. Worth every penny! I got a sample of this product when buying Kiehls’ moisturizer for my husband (his favorite). I didn’t think a lot about it and the sample laid on my bathroom counter for sometime. I have had horrible breakouts regularly since I was a teenager (I Am 36 now). As usual, I had bad breakout all over my face right before my period day and it left me with multiple large dark areas. I decided to use the sample. First thought was that it was easy to apply, it spreads and absorbs very well. I really like the feeling on my face after applying it as it really light and airy. The sample lasted me about 3 days. At the end of day 3, I already saw the difference in the dark areas. They were lighten significantly. My skin is not forgiving, and the hyperpigmentation usually lasts forever. With this product, omg, 3 days! I was so impressed that I went online immediately and purchased a 1.0 oz bottle. This time I applied it all over my face instead of just the dark areas. The second time around, I feel like it took a little longer to see the effect like I did with the sample. However, I consistently use it 2 times a day, and I started to notice that my hyperpigmentation was fading away after 1 week. Now, around 2 weeks, I saw some areas looking darker than usual and I started doubting the product. However, I kept on using it. And just a few days later, those darker spots were just pilling off, revealing a smoother, more even-toned layer of skin underneath. I was blown away. I rarely write reviews, but this miraculous product makes me. I wanted to let more people know about this product. I used it faithfully and cannot imagine my routine without it now. At the end of my first bottle, my overall skin appearance was brighter, smoother, my hyperpigmentation went away quickly. My husband even noticed the difference and complimented on my skin. We’ve been home only due to Covid, but I can’t wait to show off my skin once I get back to work. The 1 oz bottle lasted me 2 months only (I probably put too much as I love it so much). Today, Kiehls has 25% off and I am pampering myself by getting me the largest bottle. Please keep this product forever. I am Asian with mature, acne-proned skin, and I’ve found one holy grail for my skin. If you use it consistently, it will work miraculously. Take it from my experience, you may see some dry patches that appear darker than other areas, don’t worry, just keep on using it. The dry patches are the skin areas with problems, and the product is just working it way to fix it. Just need faith in the product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from oit didn't for me I really hoped this would help and decrease dark spot, unforgettably it didn't. I used one jar, and didn't see any result, so I wasn't going to purchase it again, but the sales rep who helped me said it works better with Vitamin C Serum, so I bought both of them and tried for few weeks. Unforgettably it didn't work for me and my dark spots are still there...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from dark spot corrector You have to be consistent with this product if you want to see results. I loved the way it applied, the smell & consistency! I would definitely recommend this product to those who are looking for a dark spot corrector that applies well and doesnt leave a greasy feeling behind!
