Rated 3.55 out of 5 stars
Most Helpful Positive Review Amazing Product!
Don't expect this to work over night, but it does work. I didn't notice the effect it had on my skin until I saw a photo of me without from a year ago and I was amazed at how much better my skin looks (before and after photo for reference)! I'm on my second bottle so I've been using this for awhile. I use it religiously in the morning and at night. However, when I went on vacation for a month and didn't bring it, I found that my dark spots were starting to come back (hence the 4/5 stars). I also didn't give it the full stars because I still have some dark spots that haven't budged.
Most Helpful Critical Review So much good at Kiehl's, but not this.
I've been using Kiehl's products for a looooong time. Obviously I like a lot of them, though I've never written a review. Yes they're expensive, but if a product performs well, I'll accept the cost.
I was hopeful this product would help with sunspots on my face. Probably not make them disappear, but at least improve them. I used it twice a day, every day, from when I got it until it ran out. I'm sorry to say that it had absolutely no impact on my sunspots. Nothing. Whether the spots were large or small.
I can say that the texture - in terms of staying in place and feeling good - was great, but I would not recommend this product at all. It's nothing but a very expensive moisturizing serum.

Donki from San Francisco, CA
I really hoped this would help and decrease dark spot, unforgettably it didn't. I used one jar, and didn't see any result, so I wasn't going to purchase it again, but the sales rep who helped me said it works better with Vitamin C Serum, so I bought both of them and tried for few weeks. Unforgettably it didn't work for me and my dark spots are still there...

I was looking forward to use & by reviews excited to see changes not for me i wouldn't waste money just use plain Vit.C
dark spot corrector

You have to be consistent with this product if you want to see results. I loved the way it applied, the smell & consistency! I would definitely recommend this product to those who are looking for a dark spot corrector that applies well and doesnt leave a greasy feeling behind!
dark spots be gone
alexjftz from undisclosed
I recieved this product to review as part of a voxbox. It did fade some of the dark spots I have from acne, but also made me breakout. It has to be applied directly to the spots as opposed to more generally. I think preventing dark spots would be more helpful, especially since this product is somewhat expensive. A bottle will last for a quote though.

I love this product, but its expensive and I feel I need to order another bottle to finish the dark spot job.... I was hoping one bottle would be enough to tone down my dark spots enough for a while

I truly feel like this product did nothing for me. Its expensive and I didnt notice any changes in my skin from this. I would not ever buy this again. Just not for me

I absolutely loved this dark spot corrector. I had a quite a lot on my chin and and some on my right cheek. This did wonders on my chin were I had the most. Definitely recommend this product.
gentle on the skin
aram from undisclosed
I am always a fan of Vit C serums and everything that improves hyperpigmentation. This serum is non-irritating for my sensitive skin, it also does not give that Vit C tingle in the beginning. Most Vit C serums, at first try, give you that slight tingle on your face but improves overtime. This one did not. This serums texture is on the liquidy side so its easier to spread but is absorbed after massaging for few seconds. My skins texture improved, making it softer. It also visibly brightened my face- its fresh & glowy.
I love this product, it worked at the first applied.
Maritsa from Chicago
I use this product for small dark spot below my nose, even my moles are disappearing.
tiffgomes203 from undisclosed
I am going to be honest 100% thought this was going to suck but I feel in love with it. It had helped so much with my mask-ne. working in the hospital while wearing a mask all day really messed up my skin, but this product helps a lot with keeping the acne at bay as well as helping with the overall evenness of my skin tone . Took a star off because its not necessarily the end all be all for my dark marks
Did Not See Improvement

I have gone through perhaps 3-4 bottles of this. Havent seen much of an improvement. Didnt work for my skin at all.
See to believe
Jeymariie from NC
Just by seen my picture you can tell this works! In less than a month my skin is free of breakouts and blemishes. I would like to mention that I also use Kiehl's Turmeric and Cranberry mask, which is a must for exfoliating and deep-cleansing pores, therefore, brand new skin!!!
White Birch broke me out
Kupk8 from bothell, wa
Don't get me wrong. It's effective. My dark spots faded a lot after a week. But then small bumps started coming up. I used a moisturizer with white birch in it before and the same thing happens. It works great brightening up my spots. Too bad my skin doesn't like the white birch

I have dry. Sensitive skin with a few dark marks from the occasional pimple. This serum gradually faded them and my hyperpigmentation around my mouth in about 2 weeks! No irratitation, or drying. I love it!
didn't see a difference
_lil_bitty_ from undisclosed
The serum feels amazing on the skin. Very smooth and hydrating but it did not make a difference in my mothers dark spots. I dont have major dark spots so I decided to test this product on my mother who has large dark spots on her face and they did not get any lighter or look any better after a month of use.
Clears up Hyperpigmentation and Blemishes
nicole2021 from undisclosed
I absolutely love this spot solution! I have dark skin and it cleared most of my hyperpigmentation within a month!! I definitely recommend this spot solution! Kiehls Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution #complimentary
Helps with sun spots
anaontherun from undisclosed
Every summer my skin gets spots during the summer. This has definitely prevented that from happening although Ive spent a lot of time outdoors. It lasts a long time, so its worth the price. It really makes my skin feel soft & kinda glow.
Clearly it works!
jadedimages from undisclosed
I havent used a product like this since puberty but when I recently blemished it was the perfect time to try again. I chose to use this product ONLY on my blemished areas since those are the only area I want to brighten & I noticed results within the 1st 2 weeks! The serum is nice & light weight , hydrating & doesnt leave any residue which I love. Just be sure to use sunscreen during the day because of the vitamin C & youre on your way to being blemish free!
Use it as a spot corrector
Jey from NC
I use it as a spot corrector (to make the bottle last longer!) and this thing WORKS. I only use it at night, so the skin can absorb it better. I feel that using it during the day, with all the makeup on, its purpose would go to waste. Like 99% of all Kiehl'w products, it's a 10/10.
rachelles3fb7 from undisclosed
I really enjoy the smell of this! Even though this serum doesnt have asorbic acid, I still enjoy this product. The texture is watery (oily skin friendly!) and still brightens my skin. Ive bought 2 of these serums!
An absolute must!
dulip from undisclosed
I like Kiehl's Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution, and the entire line of clearly corrective. It gets a bit pricy, and I found that I do prefer the moisturizer than the serum. However, if I am not able to get the moisturizer (it was sold out) I would use this solution. It lasts a long time, I like the scent and I do see my post hormonal acne marks disappear quicker than if I dont use it. It helps even out my skin tone and I just dont feel like my face care routine is not complete without it.
enjoying the results!!!
emilyw96 from undisclosed
Received as a complimentary gift from Influenster. Used is as a spot treatment when i first received it but switched to using it all over due to it being summer and being more exposed to the sun. Love the texture of this, spreads easily with no residue and works well with other products... my skin tone is looking very even and it has helped to fade my acne marks! We probably purchase once i run out.
simonedb51f from undisclosed
I got this product for free to try from Influenster. What I really like about it is that it doesnt have residual effects on my skin after the application. It is fast dry, clean and no smell at all. However, it didnt quite clear completely my dark spots from acne marks. But it definitely got lighter. I will definitely keep using it on my face routine.
Left Me Wanting More
jordanr8f81 from undisclosed
I personally really enjoyed the texture of this serum. It wasnt heavy or oily. It absorbs quickly into the skin and gave and instant glowing affect. However the long term results did not impress me. I noticed slight changes in my dark spots but nothing outrageous. I feel like this product would be a great addition to either a beginner or someone who has sensitive skin struggling with dark spots.
