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

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 really impressed! I have tried numerous products from drugstore to high end and this is the first to actually fade the age spots on my face and arms. Not overnight, of course, but I found a true visible difference on my face within 4 weeks. The product is not inexpensive, but not over-priced either, and a little goes a long way. The clerk at the store was very clear about how to use the product and when, and did warn me that there are different levels/types of dark spots - some will correct quickly, others can take longer or never correct, depending on the depth of the damage to the skin. I guess I got lucky - because I found this stuff WORKS!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works wonders I purchased this product despite the mixed reviews and I have to say that it worked wonders for my skin. As I age every time I would spend any amount of time in the sun, regardless of the fact that my moisturizer contained SPF, I would develop a dark spot smack dab in the middle of my forehead. Over time i just kept getting bigger. I decided to give this a try and I will agree with many of the reviewers, it is NOT instant results. I used it nightly and it took months for the lightening to be noticeable. I included the 50 SPF moisturizer from Kiehl's into my routine and I have been dark spot free for almost a year now!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This Dark Spot Solution Really Works! I was a little hesitate on the price, but I was pleasantly surprised when I bought the 3.4oz bottle and it lasted over 5 months (applying both day and night). This product needs time and commitment. It's not going to give you perfect skin overnight, the results are gradual. Whenever I would pop anything on my face I would have a dark discoloration that would lasts weeks and sometimes even months! Since using Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution I have noticed that these dark spots fade much faster and that is why I have kept it in my routine. The process takes time and the price is a bit expensive, but it is well worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have only used the deluxe sample size of this product, but I am so impressed by it! I have had the sample for at least two months and it will still last me for at lest another month, which means that the large size would last me practically forever, making it a great deal for the money. Sometimes when I get a little break out, or one mean pimple that leaves an unishglty dark spot, I put a little bit of this on in the monring and at night and the spot is gone within a few short days. I would definitely recommend this product for anyone to have in their beauty cabinet because you never know when it might be needed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not a silver bullet, but a workhorse This is a serum that won't transform your skin overnight or on its own, but I couldn't imagine my routine without it. I use it at least once a day, every day, and a 1 oz bottle lasts me 5ish months (I'm already on my second!). What will really make this serum work for you is, 1) patience and consistent use, and 2) exfoliation! What works best for me is using an acid peel twice a week, then the dark spot serum followed by moisturizer. I have very pale skin that is prone to sun damage and scarring from acne. This 2-step process - not to mention religious SPF application - has visibly improved my skin.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, but takes awhile I've always had problems with dark spots after getting rid of a pimple. I finally decided to try something to fix it and went with Kiehl's because it was a little cheaper than other brands. What's great is that this product in particular comes with a 28 day money back guarantee. The Dark Spot solution definitely worked for me, however it does take awhile to see noticeable results. I would say about a week and a total of 2 weeks to see the dark spot completely disappear. I wasn't being generous with how much I applied either. I would definitely try this product again but probably after I try other brands. I wouldn't mind spending a little more for something that worked quicker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is absolutely amazing!!! I don't normally write a review for a product but I am so amazed by this I couldn't help it. I have lots of redness and pimple marks that takes forever to heal. I have tried kiehl's acne blemish control that its salicylic acid seems to help reducing my acne but not really potent with the blemishes. but this spot solution works wonder!!! in just a week I can visibly see it evens out my skin tone, reduce redness and slowly but sure, fade my scars!! I cant praise it enough!! Of course I have to control diet and take care of hygiene too so I won't cause new pimples to form. Will definitely purchase this again!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it so far I bought it in Sweden maybe a month ago. I have A LOT of acne scars, from a 4 year long struggle with acne and I was defently suffering from them regarding my self esteem without makeup. After I had gotten it I read some reviews that scared my a little, about how it's gonna make me break out and not work and blah blah blah. Nothing like that happened. In addition to dermarolling one a month, I use the serum every night and have already noticed a big change. The smaller scars have faded for the most part, and the bigger ones have gotten way less noticeable. Texture is great, soaks in to the skin really quickly. Highly recommend
