Kiehl's Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution

WIN the new Kiehl's Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution! Click HERE for more details.

I've already explained about the new Kiehl's Clearly Corrective White range HERE.

The star product of this range is the Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution which is 100% active on skin so it penetrates faster and begins working immediately upon application without over drying the skin. 

The formula's key ingredient, power-packed, Activated C is the latest-generation Vitamin C derivative on the market and Kiehl’s is proud to be the first company in Asia to bring this ingredient to market within a full product range.

The Dark Spot Solution not only prevents but also gets rid of dark spots through anti-cluster activity.

It is entirely clear as it aims to bring clarity to skin. Wouldn't want anything to interfere with the process.

I love serums that come with a dropper! It feels so much more luxurious plus it's more hygienic & easier to control.

I use 2 drops for my face, twice daily. I was shocked at how fast the Dark Spot Solution disappeared into my skin. The only thing it left behind was plump hydrated skin. No shine or stickiness.

This is Miss Orange. She's a sad orange because of her skin problems.

After 8 weeks of using the Dark Spot Solution..

She now has smooth even skin! Yayyy~~

Well, okay.. That didn't happen but here's my own pics! Here's to every girl who commented I have such smooth skin LOL

Dry flaky skin with dark spots, pimple scars, blemishes.. It looks much better now although I had used it for only 2 weeks. Brown spots are fading to pink spots and I do see a more radiant me in the mirror.

I did notice I'm getting more shiny after a few hours though. However, it's still at an acceptable level and the results are worth it ^_^ My skin has gotten used to it and it's no longer making me extra shiny =)

Ingredients : Aqua/Water, Propylene Glycol, Glycerin, Alcohol Denat., PEG/PPG/Polybutylene Glycol-8/5/3 Glycerin, Hydroxypropyl Tetrahydropyrantriol, 3-O-Ethyl Ascorbic Acid, PPG-6-Decyltetradeceth-30, Phenoxyethanol, Salicylic Acid, Xanthan Gum, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Potassium Hydroxide, Citric Acid, Sodium Citrate, Tocopherol Acetate, Lavandula Angustifolia Oil/Levender Oil, Disodium EDTA, Lonalool, Citrus Tachibana/Citrus Aurantium Tachibana Peel Extract, Paeonia Suffruticosa Extract/Paeonia Suffruticosa Root Extract.

Size : 1.0 fl. oz. / 30 ml
Price : RM 200
Made in USA

Pros : Absorbs fast, not sticky/oily upon application, smells nice, effective against uneven skin tone & pigmentation, hydrating, dropper
Cons : Makes me oilier than usual after a few hours

My conclusion : Loving it! Although my current scar serum gets rid of pimple scars, it doesn't even out my skin tone and bring out the inner radiance like this. I'm convinced it will make my skin look better with continuous usage.

    I have quite a few problems these days. The other day, I went for a routine skin checkup at KLCC and okay, facts really do sucks BIG time but I'm facing 3 main problems:

    1. Uneven skin tone
    2. Enlarged pores
    3. Appearance of fine lines


    Looks like I am getting old and ageing does not do any justice to me. FML. RM200... seems okay but then again, I'm lemming towards SKII for their Facial Treatment Essence. My brother has been on it since 10 years ago and I have gotta admit his skin is like... flawless... he faced pimple and acne problems and these left scars when he was still 17 or 18. Now, we all 'worship' his skin like MAD. Hahahaha...

    By the way, any recommendation for eye creams? I need new one...

  4. Hahaha! Get the sample to try lah

  5. angelvalerie198513 March, 2012 12:41

    I want too but sceptical because the other day, went for routine skin checkup and I am facing 3 major problems women at my age would face - enlarged pores, fine lines and also uneven skintone. I'm lemming towards SKII now because I saw the promising results on my brother who's an avid user for more than 10 years. His skin is flawless and almost like QiQi. Hahaha...

  6. Ahhhh! Must take care already. How much is sk2? Ive heard of the wonders but exp right? Plus if you stop then the reverse effect is bad. Rumour oni lah lol
    So far, I like the Kiehl's line reducing one n Nicole likes the avacado 1 (sample always OOS). They say MRC Eye better but haven try. Dior was alright.. but I prefer Kiehl's

    I thought there was reverse effect in the past too but I was wrong. Stupid people spreading false rumours. If I am not mistaken the Facial Treatment Essence is RM189 for 75ml and RM389 for 150ml. I am contemplating whether or not to get the 150ml. Scared I might be disappointed. Tony Moly's pore and whitening products sucks - no effects. They don't come cheap also. If I knew earlier, I wouldn't even splurge on them. I was at Kiehl's the other day. A lot of samples OOS... disappointed...

  8. the results look AMAZING!!!!! ohh noooooo's to the oiliness T_T okay I'm gonna go onto khiel's website to check how much this bad boy is!!!

  9. Wow! I've to try this like now...thanks for the awesome review..=)

  10. Not too bad.. Maybe my skin will get used to it :) Cos it's dehydrated oily.

  11. nice!! have u tried the MRC serum before? how would you campare that to this?
    i'm torn between kiehls MRC and Estee Lauder ANR.. :(
    after you reviewed this, i want to consider this too and someone mentioned sk2 at the comments..
    arrrr... *pulls hair* which to buy???

  12. Hmm.. But then if your skin get used to sk2, there isn't much left to try since sk2 is already so strong.

  13. LOL you saw the sk2 huh? xD

    Yes I have but I think my skin doesn't really like it (gets kinda bumpy). I don't feel it absorbing and I don't see any of the brightening/revitalizing effects others talk about. I only tried the ANR tester at the counter but I felt it absorbed better.

    This DSS absorbs all the way and the oiliness only comes after hours (which means it's natural except enhanced).

    Try all the samples before buying!

  14. hahaha good idea to use orange :) hahaha is kinda expansive for me but will try it while i graduate :)

  16. Results are pretty amazing.  This is one of those products I should invest in.  Thanks for sharing.

  17. oh the result is really great! I might go ask for a sample and try if this will work for me!

    btw thank you for your comment on my blog! I'm following yours ;D

  18. I love how you show REAL before and after photos :) Thanks for the review!
    I haven't tried this product yet, but I want to since I have uneven spots where it's darker too =.=
    And the orange photos were cute ^^

  19. Oh wow, looks like it's working! I'm looking for something for small spots under my eyes and old scars...gotta search around, this one's a bit pricey! :p

  20. You only use one or 2 drops at a time Hahaha.. but if you find a cheaper alternative with the same results, do share!

  21. Archana Shrestha15 March, 2012 08:34
