My Story

Initially I got this product’s deluxe size free sample from their store on my purchase of the Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution: Review

I was very excited to try this. It is what they say magic potion in a bottle. It is one of the best rated top ten Kiehl’s products. It has won many beauty awards. Okay, I will make this quick. That sample lasted me around 10 days and I immediately got back to the store to buy the full size bottle. It worked wonders for my combination skin. It was light unlike most oils. It was non-greasy and most importantly it didn’t break me out the next morning. You are only supposed to apply this like 2-3 drops, and your skin would just absorb it in no time. If you are on the drier side of your skin, you can also use a moisturiser or a night cream after this. During winters I do, for this is not enough during winters for my skin. It gave me a healthy glow the next morning. On continued usage, you will see the tan lines fading out faster than usual. The is the one product that I never skip in my night time routine. The bottled dropper packaging makes it a winner- read non-messy, but then its a glass bottle and I am always so scared that I might drop it and break this magic potion.

Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution: Review

Pros:

  • Great for sensitive skin.
  • Gets rid of the tan and hyper-pigmentation.
  • Gives you a bright glow.
  • Lightens acne scars, also helped me with chicken pox scars.
  • Its a clear solution and not very sticky, acts as a wonder makeup base for me.
  • Silicone-free, fragrance-free and paraben-free.
  • Comes with a dropper packaging, very hygienic to use it and only two drops each day runs for almost two to three months.

Cons:

  • Glass bottle: I am always scared, I might break it.
  • Does not work well if you don’t use a moisturizer and a sunscreen along with it.
  • Highly Priced.
  • Availability is a major issue, Available only at Kiehl’s stores and Nykaa.com, our local cosmetic and skincare stores will not have this, so we end up buying this product on MRP.

My Story:

So, back in March 2014.. I was affected by Chicken Pox which left me huge marks all over my face. I was done trying it all from medicated skin creams to coconut water. Nothing worked for me. And to add to my fate my skin had become super sensitive and prone to breakouts. Then a friend introduced me to Kiehl’s. I walked into their store to try my hands on it. They didn’t have sample sachets available for this product, unwillingly enough I purchased the whole size product, along with blue herbal moisturizer. It was only one week and I could feel the difference. My breakouts began to diminish in size, maybe because of the blue herbal moisturizer., but nothing really happened to the dark spots. I knew I was expecting results too soon. After about a month I noticed, the tan fading out, the spots lightening. But thimg_1850e Chicken pox spots were stubborn. It took me two bottles to fade that out. And not only that, the texture of my skin got so much better. Its loaded with amazing ingredients.

Just to name two of them, the activated Vitamin C protects our skin from daily sun damage and the Salicylic Acid helped me get rid of acne. Today, I swear by this product. Yes, I agree this is not the sole product I used to get rid of acne and dark spots, I followed a good CTM too. But My Rating for this Product is a total 4/5.
