Kiehl's Dermatologist Solutions Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution.

I have sun damage and I am old. Well, not that old; but old enough to be dealing with age spots and sun discolorations galore. I am constantly trying new products to help fade the damage. The latest one I am testing that I couldn't wait to share with you is this Dermatologist Solutions Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution from Kiehl's.

This is no ordinary spot corrector. You see, it uses Vitamin C as the key ingredient to run over skins cells (exfoliate) and fade spots. So when I saw that this formula was clear and that the bottle was clear, I was left wondering what was up. Vitamin C is known to break down in light and is usually found in brown bottles. But that is where this is very different. The Vitamin C in Dermatologist Solutions Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution is actually Activated C, the latest generation in Vitamin C derivatives.  It is photostabilized, which is so important. It does not break down. And Kiehl's is the first to bring this to market.

The unique, entirely clear preparation is 100% active so that is quickly attacks even deep set dark spots by breaking apart the clusters. Better yet, by using it all over the face, it helps prevent the formation of new pigment clusters (dark spots).

Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution is working for me. I apply this prior to my serum, every morning and night, all over my face. It feels and absorbs like water with a bit of a slip. I use about four little drops, which is plenty for me. I have been using it for just about two weeks now and my most stubborn age spot "patch" is visibly breaking apart. For this I am more than thrilled. Though I have been happy with my current hyperpigmentation routine, this is obviously doing a better job - and in such a short period of time! I think this one will knock out my current Age Spot Lightener out of my favorites place, where it has been for over two years.

If you battle with age spots, I urge you to give this Kiehl's Dermatologist Solutions Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution a try. It sells for $49.50, which gets you 1 fluid ounce. The price is right on with other dark spot correctors, but not of this quality. For the ingredients and science behind this product, I would honestly expect it to cost more. Let me just say that if Kiehl's were to charge $100 for this, I already know I would be repurchasing. Yes - this one is that good.

Kiehl's also believes that everyone deserves a chance at radiant, clear skin, so they are giving away 100 bottles on their facebook page. It’s easy to participate. Just go to Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective tab and scroll down to enter:  http://www.facebook.com/KiehlsSince1851?sk=app_227869207293077  The contest will be live until Feb. 27, at 9 PM EST.

Do you know if I can use this with retinol? It is part of my rutine.
Maybe use retinol every other day?
PLEASE LET ME KNOW!
Thanks,
G
Hi G!

You know, I would ask your doctor, or whomever prescribed your retinol. If it is OTC, then I would start it every few days to see if there is a reaction. It is very gentle on the skin, not like the more harsh skin lighteners out there.
I bought this a few weeks ago and I wanted to let you know that my age spots are practically faded all ready. I am telling everyone about it and will be stocking up, thanks to you!!!
Can you post the full ingredients list of this product please? It would be nice to know what the makeup is.
