      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 used the 3.4 mL bottle over the course of 6 months, twice a day. I'm pale with a few acne marks and melatonin spots from pregnancy that haven't lightened much with use. I'm in love with the my skin care regimen made of other kiehls products! This one was just a dud for me.

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

        While the dark spot correcting serum itself does have a great texture and I did notice a slight change in my skin tone, I HATE the bottle it comes in. I travel weekly for work and this is the only Kiehl's item I cannot take with me. No matter how tightly I shut the bottle, it undoes itself and spills. The first time I tried the product, I was leaving on travel the next day and took it with me in my Kiel's travel bag. When I arrived at work, it had already spilled everywhere and I lost half of the product the SECOND day. I have not been able to use the product consistently since because of my hectic schedule and the fact that I have to skip days since I cannot take it with me. If you are on the move, do not purchase until it is packaged differently or else waste your money, only to have it spill all over your purse.

        Was given this as a gift this past April. And I began using the product consistently since the fall. I haven't seen any improvement. I don't think I'll be buying more products from here in the future.

          This product got rid of my hyperpigmentation caused by the sun. I used it on my forehead 6 years ago and the hyperpigmentation has never returned to that spot. I'm buying it again as I've just had dark spots appear on my cheeks while on vacation. Unlike other products, it doesn't sting or burn, and goes on smoothly. Use morning and night for it to work properly. Stay out of the sun and use sunscreen, otherwise you'll be working against the product and won't see results. It will take a few months to see results too, so be patient!

              This has no positive effects on the skin, if you want to lighten you discooration there are other products out there that are more effective. This caused small white heads for me where it was applied. I used this as a spot treatment and it caused small little white heads where applied. The toner (now treatment water) and the creamy foaming cleanser (not the new version - that contains glass in it) works wonders. Sad the Kiehl's reformulated the wash as it was so effective. With the level of bad reviews surrounding the dark spot solution you would think Kiehl's would reformulate this, not the highly rated wash.

              I used this morning and night for 3 months and kept up with my sunscreen and everything religiously, but my dark spots didn't get better. I normally have good, stable skin and my only concern is my dark spots, so I really noticed a difference when my skin became worse with this product. My skin just looked porous and textured, and became unstable and sensitive. That's all it did for me. I've been told that this product is badly formulated and the clear packaging doesn't keep the ingredients stable and stuff, but I just believing in it for some reason? Oh, and the dropper lid doesn't screw on tightly. Like don't even try to travel with this. So honestly, this was a waste of time and money. I even got the 1.7 ounce bottle and I just can't push on with using it.

                I've had a ton of hyperpigmentation on my skin for years, mostly post inflammatory and related to acne scaring. I've used this product religiously for about a month now, every day, morning and night, and it has definitely worked for me. I'm African American, have sensitive skin that is prone to dryness and cannot tolerate anything harsh. This is a very soothing and balancing formula and honestly I highly highly recommend it. It takes time like any "spot corrector" to see results. I'd say that the way I see it work the most is balancing out my skin tone and giving my skin a more hydrated look, in addition to slowly fading my dark spots. I'm going to be using this produc forever. It's awesome.

                I love Kiehl's and was hoping that I could make this product part of my daily skin routine but it hasn't worked for me. I have been using it religiously for a few months and I have seen no difference. I like the texture, it goes on smooth, but there were no results and therefore I cannot in good faith recommend this product.
