Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really reduced care of my acne scaring Just finished a bottle and I can now say this product has made a substantial difference on my acne scaring. I had a few breakouts that left some scaring on my forehead and cheeks and got this product in hopes to eliminate it. It worked extremely well, I would repurchase a 1000 times, it completely eliminated my forehead scaring and cheeks is barely there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Purchase Ever! I am on my second bottle already within 1 year. Very effective working, I have acne scars problem, not much dark spot but a lot of redness. They are fading away, not very fast but I can tell the effectiveness since I use this. Would recommend to others.
Date published: 2019-10-29
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Saw zero difference Saw no difference after several weeks of use. Very disappointed as I do love other Kiehl’s products. Now stuck with a mostly full bottle. This was not a free sample either. It was a purchase. Can’t seem to correct that on the review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from takes time but well worth the wait! After coming off my contraceptive pill last year I started getting pretty severe hormonal acne which led to lots of dark spots all over my chin and cheeks. Safe to say, i've been using this for 3 months and 90% of my dark spots have gone! Worth a go, i'd say!
Date published: 2019-10-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good! I am using this as recommended with the face wash, moisturiser that doubles up as a sleep mask 2 times a week, the plain moisturiser and sun screen for the sun and dirty air. I have been using it for the last 2/3 months and have started to see results. You have to use it 2 times daily and use all the other products to really see progress. PS I am Black African so finding anything that works and is also formulated for our beautiful melanin is hard. I will also be starting regular treatments from my local beauty spa to make sure I am on top of my skin care.
Date published: 2019-10-24
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Zero difference made As much as I love just about any products by Kiehl’s, I am sorry to report that this one made zero difference after nine weeks of daily use. Very expensive water as far as my sun damage facial are concerned.
Date published: 2019-10-06
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Absolutely useless and a waste of money For the price tag, you’d expect that there’d be even a slight difference. I’ve used the ENTIRE bottle only to find every dark spot to still remain on my face. These are dark spots that have been caused from breakouts which are much easier to treat than hereditary pigmentation but NO, this solution did nothing.
Date published: 2019-09-25
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Did not reduce dark spots I have used the dark spot solution for about four months now. It is very nice to use in the sense that it sinks in quickly and makes my skin feel hydrated, and it is great under spf50. However, unfortunately it did absolutely nothing for my dark spots. I was not expecting them to disappear entirely but was hoping they would be reduced, which was not the case. Considering the cost of this product this has been quite disappointing.

Can this be used under eye's ?

Asked by: AuntD
Hi there! We do not suggest using our Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution in the eye area. The skin surrounding your eyes much more sensitive than the rest of your body and requires special care. We hope you can try our Midnight Recovery Eye treatment instead! Our replenishing eye cream for dark circles and puffiness helps restore the eye area for a smoother appearance. Infused with Butcher’s Broom Extract, Lavender Essential Oil and Evening Primrose Oil, our formula helps smooth and restore the eye area. Here is some more info: http://tinyurl.com/yyhtojey We hope you can try it out!

Use with other oil product

I have been using the midnight repair oil, please instructions to use this serum, can I use it after the oil?
Asked by: AndreaHz
Hi there! Our Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution is a targeted treatment and should be used before our Midnight Recovery Concentrate. We hope you love the results!

Are you supposed to massage in or just leave on surface of upper lip (letting it absorb in)

Asked by: Kappy
We suggest using a few drops our Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution and gently tapping and massaging it into your skin until fully absorbed!
