Rated 3 out of 5 by from kiehls I have been using for a couple of weeks and have not noticed a dramatic change. after the 4th week I noticed a very small disappearance. It also causes my skin to get really red and bumpy. Thought it would be better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from much more than I expected ! Ive tried a few dark spot products so I didnt expect much, but Ive been pleasantly surprised, my skin tone and texture improved and it gave me a nice little glow. I have one particular dark spot that I made sure to tend it and I do notice a difference in the 4 weeks that Ive used it so far.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really good so far! I was so excited to try this product because I suffer from a lot of acne scarring and dark spots. I added this to my skin care regimen and apply it once a day every PM. I must say I have noticed that my skin is brighter and so are my dark spots! So far I love it and I will continue to use it!
Date published: 2020-05-30
Rated 4 out of 5 by from great for decreasing pore size I love this serum. My pores have decreased and my complexion appears clearer. I cant say I saw any lightening of dark spots but perhaps itll take longer than a month to lighten. I received this product complimentary by Influenster but all opinions are my own.
Date published: 2020-05-30
Rated 4 out of 5 by from It actually works!!! I have been using this product for about 30 days now and I was shocked to see the difference within the very first week. My dark spots are so much lighter so will definitely keep using this to see even better results.

Can i use this product with other brightening treatments?

Can I use “clearly corrective dark spot corrector” then “nightly refining micro-Peel concentrate“ then “clearly corrective brightening and smoothing moisture treatment” nightly? Not sure if it might be too much brightening treatments nightly. Pls help clarify. Thanks.
Asked by: Dashang
Hi there! We suggest using the products in the following order: Cleanser, toner, Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Corrector, Clearly Corrective Brightening and Smoothing Moisture Treatment, Eye Cream. We only suggest using the Nightly Refining Micro-Peel Concentrate a couple times per week. We hope this helps!
