Introducing Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution!

I’ve had this product for probably over a month now, and haven’t reviewed it yet because I really wanted to see if it works. I used it every night after washing my face for weeks now, and I am happy to announce I absolutely saw results.

I have sun spots that are under my eyes, and they drive me NUTS. This product reduced the darkness of the spots so much – that I’m convinced it’s going to remove them completely as I continue to use it!

Following the 2010, breakthrough development of Kiehl’s Photo-age Corrector, Kiehl’s Since 1851 chemists introduce a fast, exceptionally effective formulation developed to promote youthful clarity while addressing the appearance of dark spots, discolorations, acne scarring and uneven skin tone – Kiehl’s Dermatologist Solutions® Clearly CorrectiveTM Dark Spot Solution.

The formula’s key ingredient, power-packed Activated C, is the latest-generation Vitamin C derivative available and Kiehl’s Since 1851 is proud to be the first company to bring this ingredient to market in the U.S. Kiehl’s unique, entirely clear preparation is 100% active to quickly begin attacking deep-set dark spots; and, with its “anti-cluster” technology, it swiftly breaks apart discolorations and prevents the formation of new pigment clusters.

Formulated with White Birch and Peony Extracts, the results of this potent combination are clear: fast, correction year-round, for visibly more uniform skin tone and overall clarity. This product is photostabilized and silicone-free and not made with optical diffusers or pearls to mask discolorations/dark spots, hence the clear formula in a clear bottle.

Most discoloration products work in a similar fashion by:
• Exfoliating skin to decrease retention of unwanted melanin at the surface;
• Limiting excessive melanin production and slowing the transfer of melanin to surrounding keratinocytes;
• Increasing anti-oxidant protection to prevent skin damage and melanin over-production.

Through comprehensive research, Kiehl’s chemists discovered that Activated C adds an innovative, valuable step in the fight against unwanted pigmentation: prevention of melanin clusters. Activated C actually breaks up existing melanin clusters, treating pigment currently present in the skin and inhibiting the formation of new melanin clusters.

“At Kiehl’s, we’ve determined that to promote clarity and a more youthful appearance, Activated C is next-generation. We’ve learned that we can’t simply slow down the production and migration of hyperpigmentation,” states Dr. Angelike Galdi, Kiehl’s Head Chemist & AVP of Research and Development. “We have to break up the overproduced melanin, prevent it from clustering into a dark spot and stop it from migrating to the surface. We refer to this as anti-cluster activity and Activated C is outstanding in this functionality. Many other spot corrector products do not perform this action. We believe that with this advancement, all hyperpigmentation products will now be evaluated for their performance in this area.”

Clearly Corrective is a fast-acting serum that penetrates faster and deeper allowing you to see results even sooner. This serum evens skin tone, diminishes dark spots to impart overall radiance and luminosity to the skin:

  • In as little as 2 weeks, 55% of women clinically demonstrated a significant reduction in dark spot intensity.
  • In 4 weeks, 69% of women clinically demonstrated a continued reduction in dark spots intensity and 73% of women showed a significant reduction in acne scarring. Reduction in other skin discolorations was clinically evident among 69% of women.
  • In 8 weeks, 87% of women clinically demonstrated more uniform skin tone to deliver breakthrough clarity.

Bottom line – this stuff works! If you have dark spots that you’d like to see go away – start with this product. We know and trust Kiehl’s – and they didn’t let us down this time!

Disclosure: I was sent a bottle of this product to sample for my review.

Kiehl’s + Koons: A Wonderland of Merry

Maintaining its long-standing tradition of supporting children’s causes, Kiehl’s, the venerable New York-based purveyor of fine quality skin and hair care, is pleased to announce a collaboration with one of the foremost internationally recognized contemporary artists, Jeff Koons who is using his creative genius to help children in need around the world. With the shared vision of creating safer, more sustainable environments for children, the Kiehl’s and KOONS partnership will raise awareness and funds though the sale of the Limited Edition Creme de Corps Holiday Collection, a four-product collection featuring the newest formulation, Creme de Corps Soy Milk & Honey Whipped Body Butter.

100% of Kiehl’s Worldwide Net Profits up to $200,000 will benefit The Koons Family Institute, an initiative of the International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children (ICMEC). Each product in the collection – available in Kiehl’s stores around the world this holiday season only – features the artwork of TULIPS (1995-98 Oil on Canvas) from the iconic Celebration Series on its label.

KOONS & ICMEC
Most people know Jeff for his art, but less known is that he is also the father of an abducted child, Ludwig. He has battled on two continents to get his son back. Yet despite his fame and influence, his son was not able to be returned to his custody. Jeff is a fervent advocate for protecting children and continues his work for ICMEC through this partnership and the foundation of The Koons Family Institute on International Law & Policy.

About The International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children
The International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children (ICMEC), founded in 1998 and launched by the U.S.-based National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, works to identify and coordinate a global network of organizations fighting child-sexual exploitation and abduction. The Koons Family Institute, a resource of ICMEC combats child exploitation in all its forms, including child trafficking, child pornography, and child abduction.

Through this partnership with ICMEC and Jeff Koons, the Kiehl’s donation will:

• Convince countries to join and adhere to international conventions protecting children

• Help meet ICMEC’s goal of putting in place national-level programs and operational centers for missing and exploited children, in every region of the globe

• Expand ICMEC’s work into additional countries, helping to enact powerful laws against child pornography and legislation on child pornography in dozens of countries.

NEW from Kiehls! Photo-Age High-Potency Spot Treatment

I have very sensitive skin, and as I get older, the sun is taking its toll. By the end of the summer, I will have a patch of sun spots that are less than cute. I hate it! I looked into finding sun-spot removers, but there weren’t a lot to pick from. I was happy to get a sample of this product, see if it really works!

I use it twice a day, in the morning and before bed. I’ve noticed the sun spots are slowly going away. I’ve been using it for two weeks, and I’m confident that in a month or so these spots of mine shall be gone like the summer sun! I highly reccommend it!

High-Potency Spot Treatment powerfully reverses UV damage three ways: provides instant luminosity and radiance, reverses visible damage on skin surface and inhibits invisible damage from rising to the surface.

How to use: Apply on areas of concern for targeted action (such as on intense, stubborn spots) or apply over the entire face and décolleté for preventative action (such as blotchiness and hyperpigmentation).
