Clearly Corrective Brightening and Soothing Treatment Water is rated 2.6 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful I first received this product as a sample last year. I really loved it but I couldn’t fit it in my budget. Finally I bought the full size bottle and am still very happy with the product. I agree it’s pricey but it works. The irediscent colors of the solution is pretty. The packaging is simple which makes it easy to store in the medicine cabinet. I recommend to not use a cotton ball so that you get to use all of the product and not lose out in the absorption of the cotton ball. When I break out I always end up with dark spots, even though I never pick at the area. This product speeds up the clearing of the dark spot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from absolutely awesome. I have read all those bad review but I decide to try. I am normal skin to oily. I have little acne and larger pores on my cheek. At first I bought this for whiting my skin because the other product( dark spot solution) works for me really well. Dark spot one i have use for 5 of them. This one is like a toner for it. This water itself have little sparkle things in it, i was worried because I really don't want any sparkle on my face for a skin care routine. the other day after i using it my face is bright and shine from itself. the make up i apply becomes more fit to my skin. my foundation actually stay longer as usual.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Product I am terrified that negative reviews will stop this product from being produced! This is my all time favorite product. I use this after cleansing and just pat it into my skin. I have very dry and sensitive skin. This product soothes and moisturizes all at once. I used to slather on heavy creams that never made me feel moisturized and caused breakouts. I let it sit for a minute before I moisturize. It is ideal for those looking to clarify and add an extra layer of moisture to their skin!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing Results Made my skin oiler and did not clarify at all (especially dark marks). I thought it was just me until I Googled that the formulation had changed ( not just the packaging) and saw so many negative reviews. I loved the original toner. Worked perfectly for oily skin, with pore issues. I've been a loyal Kiehl's customer for years. This was the second product in a year that has not met expectations due to formulation or discontinuation. Stop messing with a great brand and ruining it for loyal, satisfied users. This will erode your customer base fast. #kiehlsfail

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bring back the Clearly Corrective Moisture Emulsion! Difficult to apply without losing expensive product in cotton ball. The Clearly Corrective Brightening moisture emulsion was perfect...why is it no longer available?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Kiehl's Has Destroyed the Clearly Corrective Line I have been using the Clearly Corrective line since it first came out. If I remember correctly, there was an earlier reformulation that was an improvement to the line. These latest changes are NOT. This product is far inferior to the toner. The change to the cleanser is a disappointment too. Not happy about having to find a new skincare line and the wasted money on product that will go unused.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Old formulation was better I loved the old formulation which actually felt like a toner and gave my skin a clean feeling. This new formulation feels slimy, and it leaves my skin feeling like it has a film on it. Drops of this product which collect around the cap tend to congeal into weird sticky clumps of gel. Very unappealing, and seems like a big waste of money. I can't understand why you would reformulate something that was clearly successful. Please, bring back the old formula.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The old one was better I had never ever written a review that wasn't glowing about a Kiehl's product but I have to say that the new version is not as good and even the packing is not as easy to use as the old bottle. Can you please bring back the old formula? Why did you change a great thing??

Please tell me this isn’t Kiehl’s version of the AWFUL Micellar water trend??? Please tell me this is an updated product similar to the Clarity Activating Toner I can’t live without?

Asked by: Trish DeLaney
This is not the same, not even close. Whatever they did with this reformulation, they ruined the best product for my skin (maybe yours too). I’ve been on and off so many products in the last 8 months, searching for a solution to them discontinuing my favorite toner. They also destroyed the creamy face wash, the face wash saved my skin. The new formula as too abrasive and makes your face red, irritated and over exfoliated. Kiehls has lost a loyal customer, I’ll never go back to their skincare since it appears they like to change formulas constantly, making your skin freak out constantly. Such a shame they don’t listen to their customers who all clearly hate this reformulation. Whoever made the decision was only focused on the water trend, not customer satisfaction.
