Clearly Corrective™ Dark Spot Solution is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 426.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from one of my favourite serums =) I have used this last October of 2018 and it has always been on my skin care.I love how it feels when I apply it on my face. It is easily absorbed and non tacky. I love how it changed the texture of my skin. It made my skin feel smooth and soft. If I am not using it, like I missed a couple of days, I can feel a change in my skin texture. Also, it does not make me breakout which is a huge plus for me. I use it day and night. That is why I keep on repurchasing it. I am nearly on my third bottle now. I am only giving it a 4 because with the hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone, it does help with the new scarring. It helps it heal, however with my old ones I can't see any difference especially my age spots which is starting to be visible now. I notice some brightening effects few weeks of using it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works for me! I have been using this product for about 6 weeks and it has definitely made a difference on my age spots around my eyes. It has lightened the small age spots to the point that they are barely noticeable! The larger ones are not as dark so I will continue to use and hope they will eventually disappear. I read the reviews before I purchased and some people said it didn't do anything for them. I guess everyone's skin is different but I have to say this product works for me! I will continue to use faithfully!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must Have! My friends were raving about using this product a year or two ago, I tried a sample size and eventually bought a bottle. I popped a pimple a month before I started my bottle. I would use this on that pimple scar, and saw improvement. I love the scent from this serum and how fast the skin absorbs it. I would put this on first before my moisturizer. The only con about this product is: You can't travel with the entire bottle with you. Once the oil touches the top of the bottle, closing it can get tricky. The serum can spill in your luggage/bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Packaging I want to ask the serum to change the packaging? I saw the word printed on the body without having to paste the paper. The texture is also looser than the previous bottle I bought. I don't know if I have to buy counterfeit goods or change my side. I asked my sister to buy it, I checked the batch code and saw production in March 2018. Hope kiehls will respond to me. thank you!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I brought this a month ago and been applying 3/4 drops daily, it has improved texture and brightened my complexion. Love love it. And best of all my skin is combination and very sensitive, didn’t make me break out or irritate my skin at all.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from over-rated i bought this product after reading all the amazing reviews online and speaking with an employee at my local kiehls who highly recommended this product for my acne scars. i have been using this product for over a month and am basically at the end of the bottle and have seen little to no change in my skin texture or tone. this product worked for the first week, maybe. i saw some of my scars get lighter but after that nothing has really changed. i am deeply disappointed for spending so much money on a product that did not work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! First off skin type: African American gold undertone, with yellow highlights in the center, oily T- zone but gets very dry due to Arizona climate. So not a good combo to say the least. I love this product, I’m on my first bottle halfway through and it has cleared up my hyperpigmentation just as promised! I always had great skin until I hit my 30’s then hormones took over, so every time I get the tiniest blemish it leaves a scar that takes half a life time to clear up. This product works for me. I apply after regular washing with Ultra face cleanser in the am and pm, and put under my Ultra face moisturizer and cerave ultra light sunscreen with ceramides, niacinamide and hyaluronic acid. I use every morning and every night. I also incorporate kiehls turmeric mask. I think this also helps the product do its job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have I bought this product a few months ago and have seen amazing results, I suffer from pigmentation from spots and the scars would last for months on end and then just when they start to disappear a new spot would appear, since using this product it has completely clear up all the dark pigmentation and I feel that it's helped to keep future spots at bay. I have had so many positive comments about how flawless my skin is looking! HIGHLY recommend this product! It will forever be a staple piece for me!
