Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works overtime This is a wonderful product. Takes a little time to start working but after the first month of use it brings your skin an even , brighter skintone. I absolutely love this serum.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I have used this product since 2011 until now. It is one of the best I used in Kiehls

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product works After 1 week already I can see my red spots cause by acne fading. I am consistent with use and I follow a very important step for preventing uneven skin tone,every day! Sunscreen!!! For those, who gave this product a bad review, I wonder...Did you use a good sunscreen daily? How much were you exposed to the sun? Because for those who only used this solution without preventing further damage, your reviews are irrelevant. Kiehls notifies that sun protection is a must for seeing results. Remember, even if it is a cloudy day, you need SPF. We cant sense the UV light, so we have a feeling our skin is safe. I dont fancy that it comes in a clear bottle and it is also not in a pump. A lot of ingredients are photosensitive and unstable when in contact with air. For the price I expect the product to be effective until I use the last drop of it ( of course until expiration date).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from amazing! I bought this product about 4 months ago and I am extremely happy with the results. I was a bit weary as it is quite pricey, and being black I wasn't sure if it would work on my skin tone, however I was pleasantly surprised as after 2 weeks I had already noticed quite a difference. Definitely worth the price!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Most disappointing thing ever! Very disappointing to be honest! I don't recommend and my hyperpigmentation wasn't even that bad...but it literally didn't change the colour in 4 months! DO NOT buy it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It really does work! I’ve been using this product at least once a day (usually twice) for about a month now. On the first use, I noticed a difference. I am about a third into the bottle and can not believe how much difference it has made to acne marks. I also have hyperpigmentation on my forehead and chin and clearly corrective has made a huge difference in evenning out the skin tone. I follow this with Kiehl’s SPF. I was given a sample of Kiehls cleansing wash and all three products combined have done wonders for my skin! I have not previously wanted to splash out on expensive cosmetics for my skin but having had friends and family comment on how good I look, it would be silly to not carry on!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Overhyped, overpriced and disappointing I wish i could give it 0/5 instead of 1/5.... this is such an overhyped product. Used it for 9 months, twice a day and didn’t see ANY results.. i stopped using it eventually and i’m extremely disappointed. I naturally have a dry skin and take good care of it. Had a few dark spots on my chin area and on my cheek, and with all the “hype” i figured it would make my skin better. I don not recommend it at all! And im still looking for a serum to get rid of my pigmentations. Save your money, and avoid this.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Skins smooth but still covered in red marks I bought this 3 months ago and have been using it every day and night in attempts to clear my skin of red post acne marks but have seen very little results. My skin is smoother in texture and this makes covering my red marks easier with make up. I felt like the product started making my skin tingle less as time went on which I thought meant that my skin was getting used to the product however after doing some research I found out some of the ingredients in the serum are uv sensitive and react with sunlight and are less effective which sucks because the bottle is clear and not protected in current packaging
