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.

    Features and benefits:
    - In as little as two weeks, 55% of women clinically demonstrated a significant reduction in dark-spot intensity.
    - In four weeks, 69% of women clinically demonstrated a continued reduction in dark spots and 73% of women showed a significant reduction in acne scarring. Reduction in other skin discolorations was clinically evident among 69% of women.
    - In eight weeks, 87% of women clinically demonstrated more uniform skin tone to deliver breakthrough clarity.
    - With continued daily usage, Clearly Corrective helps prevent the formation of future dark spots and other skin discolorations.
    - Free of silicones, parabens, fragrance, colorants and optical diffusers.

How much did it reduce dark pigmentation on you? How long did it take until you saw results? Does it last after you finished the bottle or do the dark spots come back? Ie is it a treatment or something you need to continue with?

Hi Lisa-Thanks for commenting. I saw a difference after about a week. Once I stop using,I did not get the discolored areas back as much. Probably because I use Neutrogena Healthy Defense Daily Moisturizer SPF 50 with Helioplex every single day. My skin looks MUCH better using this, though. So I've made a commitment to keep up with it. If you get it from Nordstrom, you can return the bottle at any time (even mostly empty) and they will refund you if it doesn't work for you. Good luck and feel free to get back to me if you have any more questions!
