      I had been eyeballing this product for months. I read all of the reviews (BIG thank you to all the fellow Kiehl`s fans) and decided it was worth a try. When I went to my local Kiehl`s store to make my purchase, the sales person raved about this product and told me how it work miracles for her scars. This sealed the deal! I have old acne dark spots on my cheeks and a little sporadically on my neck and have tried every product under the sun to try to get rid of them. I finally got my acne under control, with other Kiehl`s products, but I`ll review those when they are due, and now the scars are the only thing left. I am African American with olive brown skin, so my scars are darker brown, not pretty, and hard to cover up without a ton of makeup, which I don’t wear. I went all out and got the recommended foaming face cleanser that is associated with this line. I started my new regimen that night. The texture of the serum is smooth, goes on easy, and absorbs well into the skin within minutes. It works well under moisturizers and with make-up application. I have been using the serum for 4.5 weeks now, at night and in the morning. I am almost 1/2 way through the bottle. A little goes a long way. My skins texture feels smoother and looks brighter. I also noticed that I am using less of my tinted moisturizer and it`s giving me more coverage; that`s a good sign. I will also say it`s not the miracle worker everyone is raving about. I do recognize that the older dark spots will take some time to fade, but it does do well for fresher dark spots/scars and overall brightening your skin. I recommend this product, but I also recommend patience and consistency! I will see what happens once I finish the full bottle. Maybe I’ll get my full face miracle :)

      I have been a Kiehl's customer for twenty years but I never seem to learn my lesson. Nothing I have tried really does what they promise. And yet each time I see something new I throw caution to the wind and shell out my money. I am almost at the end of my bottle of Clearly Corrective...I even purchased the large size to give it a fair shake...and I can honestly say there is absolutely no improvement. Nothing. If you told me it was simply water in that bottle I would totally believe you. I am pathetic.

      I had such high hopes for this serum looking at all the great reviews and the price BuT it did nothing for my hyperpigmentation spots and I was disappointed . I did use the whole bottle twice a day and it didn't lighten anything up. It actually clogged my pores where I put it and I got some under skin acne so I will not be repurchasing

      unfortunately, after twice daily application for well over a month I have not seen any visible changes. There may be some improvement to the smoothness of my skin, but dark spots remain unchanged.

      Comments about Kiehl's Since 1851 Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution:

      As other people said. The results are great. The stuff works as it says. I travel to the beach each weekend and keep this in my bag. Twice (after making sure top was totally on) it has leaked pretty much all the way out. It's disappointing considering the cost but it works well enough I've bought a 3rd bottle.

      Bad Bottle Design

      Comments about Kiehl's Since 1851 Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution:

      I love this product and I can't live without it everyday. I brought a 90% full bottle to travel with me last month and when I arrived the destination after a 3-hour flight, only 10% left in the bottle. I had Middle Night Recovery within the same bag, that bottle was completely fine. After reading the reviews from others, obviously this problem happened to others as well.

        Comments about Kiehl's Since 1851 Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution:

        OK, anyone who has given this product a bad review obviously has not used the product religiously for a long enough time. I had "pregnancy mask" for years from taking the birth control pill. It would calm down a little in the winter, but every summer, if I got any sun on my face at all, the mask would start showing it's ugly splotchy dark masses. Finally, after almost a decade of trying to blend out the edges with concealer, I found this product. Did I notice a difference after one bottle (largest size)? No. But I liked the consistency and the thirst-quenching feeling it gave my skin so I kept using it anyway. I gave it a break before investing in another bottle to see if I would miss it, and much to my wallet's disappointment, I missed to too much to keep from purchasing another bottle. After finishing the 2nd bottle (using once in the morning, once at night), I started to think I was seeing a slight difference in severity of dark to light around my splotches. Then I finished my 3rd bottle, and I was sure it was helping. After about 2 years of continued use, I have absolutely NO trace of pregnancy mask splotches whatsoever. Yes, it took a long time, but some things are worth waiting for. I still use this product every day and cannot live without it. No dark spots, even after being in the sun. Can't recommend it enough. Just remember, to give it a fair chance, you really need to invest the money, time, and effort!

            Overall I like the performance of this product. It effectively reduces the dark spots on my face. However, the design of the container is really bad. The dropper is loosen. When I brought it on my trip, 1/2 of the bottle was spilled.

              Comments about Kiehl's Since 1851 Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution:

              I can't believe I'm writing a complain about this Dark Spot Solution. Be honestly, I like this product with visible effect on my face. I bought 3 bottles of this last Nov. And now I only got one more left because of the terrible container! The dropper is loosen so if whenever something happened, you will lose a great amount of serum! I brought a bottle of it to travel because I thought I can not live without it. I made sure it was tightly closed while I'm packing and guess what, it's like 3/4 bottle was spilled! I thought it might have problem with only that one bottle. But obviously no, my other bottles had the exactly same problem! Use this product with cautious, since if you accidentally run of knock it down, you will lose a great amount of it. And also consider the cost of it!

                  I really, really wanted to like this product but it was a complete dud for me. I had gotten samples of these before and liked how it felt on my skin so an associate recommended I buy the serum because results won't be noticeable for at least a month, which is fair. I applied the serum religiously every morning and every night. It was part of my daily routine everyday for months and I'm so disappointed that there are no visible changes to my skin. The price is also fairly expensive for something that isn't effective.

                      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.

                      This is the first product that I have tried to clear dark spots on my face and is doing the job I got it for. Little by little they are going away, as soon or before I run out, I will get me a second one
