Rated 2 out of 5 by from Was the formulation changed? I have used this for years. My most recent order does not appear like the product I've been using -- instead of being a clear gel (as in the 2nd product photo on this webpage) it is a light brown lotion/gel. It does not work on blemishes nearly as well as the old product. I purchased 4 tubes of this and am disappointed that Kiehl's did not post on the website that this is a new formulation. I did NOT receive a free sample of this -- I paid for it with my own $, 4 tubes of it. The website to enter online reviews is displaying that I received a free sample regardless of what I enter.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not the same I had a old bottle of this product - from 2015 - I had a need to use it again recently and it worked well, then ordered a replacement in may of 2017 - it does not work the same as the previous bottle - looks like the material changed for the worse - will not buy again :(

Rated 2 out of 5 by from why change a great thing? I used Blue Herbal Spot Treatment for about 15 years. It was absolutely a miracle worker, wiping out the occasional "spots" I'd get, especially during NYC's hot, dirty summers. I even got my product-adverse husband hooked on it. It worked. Well. So why did Kiehl's (I mean, L'Oreal!!) change the formula? It's brownish now, not clear as before, and is not very effective. I've switched to Neutrogena, which bums me out - I love Kiehl's but am not going to keep spending twice as much for a product that doesn't work.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well for me! Not sure why there are so many negative reviews on this formulation, as compared to old. Yes, it is a beige tinted translucent gel but I use it at night and it dries quickly. I spread it around my chin/jawline especially for hormonally monthly acne, and the next morning everything is much calmer. I really notice when I do not use it I get more flare ups. It certainly keeps things calmer. I don't have black heads, so not sure how effective there. But great for those hot lumps I get, and white heads around the chin and jaw. Perhaps if you have more all over face acne this process would be a pain but it certainly works great for my needs. I use even though I have serums underneath and still does a good job.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from New Formula Not As Effective One more customer who does not like the new formulation of this product as well as the old. I imagine the new formula is cheaper to make. Unfortunately it shows. This product used to make my breakouts vanish in a few days. Now it seems to do almost nothing at all. Bring back the old formula at a higher price if necessary. At least it worked!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not the same at all I agree with other posters- this new formula is absolutely not the same. No one was warned of the change to my knowledge. I also purchased this with no sample, as the name and packing look the same as the old. Didn't receive what we thought we were purchasing. I used the entire bottle of this new formula to give it a try- does not work for me. Old formula please. Money back please.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not the same! The new formula does not work nearly as well as the old formula. The old formula used to zap everything immediatley. If I left it on for one night the next morning everything would be gone! This formula takes weeks when it works which isn't always. Please bring back the old formula or it is not worth buying

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Skip this one I am sorry to say that I am disappointed in a Kiehl's product. The texture is nice and soothing the bottle is easy to squeeze. However after weeks of use, I don't believe this is very effective at treating my acne. The rest of the line is great and at least it didn't make it worse (I know we all miss the blue herbal moisturizer), so I would recommend that other customers use the rest of the line instead.
