Product Review: Kiehl's Clearly Corrective' Dark Spot Solution Serum
Kiehl's Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution is a fast-acting serum that evens skin tone and diminishes dark spots and skin discoloration to impart overall radiance and luminosity to the skin. I purchased my second 1 fl oz. bottle the second week in December. I used this product (same size bottle) for two months in the spring and was impressed with the results. This serum is liquid, almost water like. A small amount from the dropper smooths into the face and neck with ease. I apply on damp skin for even more of a slip and wait 2-3 minutes while it absorbs before applying any other products. It has a very subtle, pleasant fragrance. I tend to stay away from face products with fragrance added. One less irritant to worry about. It claims to have a special proprietary formulated stable vitamin c as one of the ingredients. Hence the clear bottle instead of an opaque one typical of products containing vitamin c. I've read quite a few reviews on this product on various shopping sites and blogs. I would say it has a 60% high rating/very satisfied rating, 20% middle of the road/okay and 20%-it did nothing for me. My personal experience with this product is smoother, glowy skin, smaller pores and good reduction/blending of any dark spots. Priced at $49.50 for the 1 fl oz bottle, it is not cheap, but I think the results are worth the price. I intend to continue using as the results are cumulative according to long term users.
