Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't believe it WORKS!!!! I very seldom write reviews for products but I think this wonderful serum deserves 5 stars!!!!!! I started developing sun spots long time ago, maybe 10 years ago, and had been using different products to treat them but they kept growing more and more after each summer. I even tried the laser treament, my skin looked great as the first few months then the spots started coming back. I have been using this product for about 3 months now. Since the first time using it I didn't give any high hope for its effects. To my surprise, I did see a lot of them either disappear or fade away and this serum helps to even my skin tone too. I use it at night as my first skincare layer, then I apply the Midnight serum and lastly the Powerful Reducing Wrinkle Cream.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I love it for my under eyes because once I stay up and have dark circles this is what I use

Rated 4 out of 5 by from smooth. moisturizing Smooth to apply. Very moisturizing. A bit sticky but I dont mind it coz I love the feeling when applying it. It has a slight scent but not too overpowering. Kiehl's Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution

Rated 5 out of 5 by from IT WORKS I only used the sample packet given to me when I bought a few other items and wow, I'm so impressed. I have dark spots around my upper lip area and it took it away within a few applications. I definitely noticed a difference after the first use. Again, this is only the sample packet! I will be purchasing the bottle, that's for sure!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST FOR HYPERPIGMENTATION! I NEVER WRITE REVIEWS! BUT ...I had a very bad breakout in 2018 and have tried sooo many different products, some worked after a very long time but this is a game changer. ! I started using this on 1/04/2020 when my hyperpigmentation from acne breakouts was still very visible and within a month, The scars are barely visible. being a black woman it is hard to find products that work for dark marks but this is WORTH EVERY PENNY. I have nearly finished the bottle and will be purchasing again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from it works Ive probably finished at least 5 bottles of this and i will keep repurchasing it. This works. I have dark spots and freckles and it lightens it so much! Its super light, doesnt dry out my skin and a little goes a long way. You have to keep using this product to see results, so dont give up after a week or two. It has no artificial smell, i would definitely recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OG Miracle Ladies you may not know this, but this product is great for getting rid of dark marks on your bikini line! Its not just good for the face. Now, Im not entirely sure if its harmful but its natural and a serum, and seed externally do what harm could it do! This bottle has lasted me years - a little goes a long way so enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Give It Time. It Works! I was hesitant to try this because of the cost. My son gave me a bottle for Christmas, and I stated using it in January. At first, I didn't notice much change, but after several weeks, I realized my dark spots were so much lighter that I no longer needed concealer under my makeup! And, I still had more than half a bottle left. Don't expect overnight results and don't expect your dark spots to totally disappear. As for the cost, I also use Olay, and one bottle of this lasted longer than three tubs of Olay. So, in the long run, this was actually cheaper.

I know that sometimes hydroquinone uses different names? Could you please verify if your product contains or not hydroquinone? I am highly allergic to it, and would like to try your serum.

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.

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!
