Takes time to fade

Lilian

I got this product in hopes of getting rid of acne scarring, and boy did it work. It took a few weeks (2-3) for me to see a notable change. This product also faded some of my freckles and sunspots. This has become one of the products that I always have on my shelf! The price is a bit much but I think it is worth it.

Skin Brightening

Hayley

I have gone through two bottles of the serum. It does a great job at brightening my skin. Unlike any other vitamin C that I have tried, this serum does not oxidize and stay clear. Nevertheless, it does nothing for my acne scar and pigmentation.
  1. Feel bright

    Tina

    I don't like the smell only, but the feeling is good when I apply it on the face.

  5. no bad

    Rachel

    I cant see any brightening effect or reduce pigmentation as yet, but skin overall does look good overnight
  6. I don't think its doing anything

    Parnika

    It smells good, but I don't see any immediate changes. I'll use the whole bottle see how it goes but probably wont buy again
  7. Made a slight change to dark circles under my eyes

    Freya

    I used this in an attempt to lighten dark spots under my eyes. It's made a bit of a difference but not as much as I wanted. Not sure I'd invest in it again.
  8. hydrating

    Rachel

    not too sure about the whitening effect but it's very hydrating, skin looks awesome in the morning and after applying.
  9. Seems to be working

    Larissa

    I have only just started using this product & it does seem to be working on the dark spots on my face. One in particular looks noticeably lighter. The product is light & non sticky or greasy & absorbs well.
  10. Amazing serum

    Sherry

    I got result only one week, it was awesome serum and my dark spots are so nearly gone. Thank you so much.
  11. Did nothing for pigmentation

    Brooke

    My skin is combination, dehydrated skin and I have scars from acne. This did not do anything for that.
  12. No results so far

    Renee

    I had high hopes for this serum as i have issues with pigmentation. I've been using it on only half of my face to see if there was any difference but after 2 months i can't notice any improvement. It does have a nice light texture though with no stickiness. I'm willing to persist and give it the benefit of the doubt because i know sometimes these things take a while to be effective.
  13. Works well on dark spots

    B

    Works really well on my dark spots and is starting to work well on my hyperpigmentation on my forehead
  14. I think it’s working... but not 100% sold yet

    grace

    I’ve been using it for over a month now. Because I use it with a lot of other products and only use this in the morning I’m not sure if it is as Effective as it could be. I see that my dark spots a lightening but it is also winter at the moment. However I will continue to use it and hopefully see some more Positive changes as some of the spots I have a quite dark and have been there for years.
  15. I can definitely see improvement

    suse

    have been using for just on a week on a few pigmentation marks on my cheek bone / under eye area and upper lip. The product is clear and goes on well. I really push it into the dark areas and allow it to dry well before the next product goes on. Im super nervous that I will drop the bottle as it is probably the most expensive skin care item i have bought! But the area is lightening already after 1 week of morning and night use. It doesnt dry tacky or leave any residue. I will keep using and hopefully see more positive results as I have thus far.
  16. Very good

    Fatema

    I used a sample I received for a few days. Upon applying I could see the results immediately. It lighten my scars and my skin left cleaner and was glowing. Only draw back is how liquidy the serum is, so you end up using more than required
  17. Lovely serum

    Hayley

    This is a beautiful light serum that I use morning and night. It really helps brighten the skin, but by itself it hasn't really lightened my old acne scars. However I've been using in conjunction with other products and home peels and overall it helps keep my skin tone even and overall I like the effect. It doesn't leave any sticky residue and works well under my makeup.
  18. Good but I'm not sold

    Elise

    I love the Brand Kiehls and their products are pretty good. I tried this in the hope to lessen skin pigmentation along my jaw line. However it really didn't do much. feels great on the skin and makes it nice and soft, but my pigmentation was still there after a few months of using it every day.
  19. Love it

    Kayzie

    A clear serum that absorbs quickly. I apply 2 drops of the serum all over my face day and night after toner and essence. I find using patting motion is best with the serum as it doesn't pull the skin. It's only been about 2 weeks since I started using it but I really like the texture and the brightness of the skin. I normally layer 2 serums then follow with a moisturiser. Too early to comment on dark spots but so far so good.
  20. Skin tone has improved

    Marie

    I have bad pigmentation around my mouth and a few sun spots on my cheeks. I have tried various things with no real results. I have been using this twice a day for two months with the clearly corrective cream and while there hasn't been much improvement in the pigmentation, my overall skin tone has improved. It smells nice and doesn't sting or feel drying. I have reordered to see if there is any further improvement.
  21. Great brand but dark spots not really removed

    Elise

    I do love Kiehl's brand and use their creams and serums etc but this product doesn't really lighten dark spots. I'm in my 40s with fair Australian skin that has some sun spots, freckles and pigmentation. I have used this for between 6-8months and even though it makes my skin feel lovely, it doesn't really remove skin pigmentation or even lighten it.
  22. Better than most other vitamin c products I've used

    Julie

    They claim activated c as their potent source of vitamin c. Potent true but long lasting not really. Having said that, it works and that's what matters for me. Just keep it in a cool and dark place and you'll be fine
  23. Helped my skin pigment

    Jol

    This is quite good! My skin pigmentation has gone down a lot. Really nice.
  24. Great

    Jia

    I have combination skin type. I have been using this solution for a month and I have saw some positive results. My dark spot has lighten and my skin looks brighter than before. Definitely will repurchase this product.
  25. works well

    Katherine

    I've tried it on a number of dark spots. So far it's worked well, nothing amazing but I'm hoping with time, they'll clear completely!
  26. Face saver!

    Teegan

    In the last few months, I had been breaking it out in sore and itchy pimples around my nose and chin which I thought might be eczema. I tried cortisone cream, I started using all of my skin product regime again (I dropped the ball a bit) - nothing worked.
    I got a sample of this and within 3 days, they all started clearing. my face looks and feels better!
  27. Less than impressed

    Samantha

    Based on the reviews, I really thought this product would help clear my acne scars but after using twice a day for over a month I've only noticed a very small decrease in pigmentation. Will finish the bottle as it doesn't seem to cause breakouts and has a nice light consistency but considering the price, I won't be repurchasing.
  28. Hello Glow

    Maddison

    I have truly seen a difference in my skins since using this product. It's clearer, brighter and helps clear up any flare ups quickly. This is going to remain a part of my daily routine.
  29. Not for me

    RM

    I received this product as a sample and I have used it for a week. I have not noticed any changes to my skin in that time that would convince me to purchase this product.
  30. definitely think its working

    perfecting skin

    i feel like it is working and my dark spots are diminishing. it is so light and it is great for sensitive skin. you would not even feel you are wearing it. it is a bit runny though so you have to work with it fast
  31. Fades dark spots

    Anna

    This solution really does have some effect on inhibiting dark spots. I've noticed a change in under 2 weeks! The solution sinks in nicely to the skin and doesn't feel uncomfortable
  32. Spots be gone

    Jay

    I can actually think this is helping with my dark spots
  33. Great for hydration & dark spots!

    TIYA

    I have dry sensitive uneven skin & have been using this product for years now. Hydrates, evens out skin tone/blemishes and diminishes dark spots.
    It does exactly what it says and worth every penny!
    I went without it for a while when I ran out and it made a difference to my skin. This here is almost a magic serum! My skin is flawless after using it religiously!
  34. Great to remove acne scarring

    Yas

    I received a sample of this and loved it so much I bought a full size. Even while using the sample size, I saw results - my dark spots from acne scarring had faded away. This product obviously doesn’t prevent new pimples from coming, but has become a staple for me to make sure they don’t leave a mark!
  35. Amazing product

    Jess

    My skin just love this.. keep your skin hydrated and soft. Definitely recommend this.
  36. Nice product

    Hayley

    Almost 3/4 through my bottle and I like it. I have hormonal nd acne blemish scars which I couldn’t budge. Use this at night in conjunction with Paula’s Choice AHA and my skin has improved so much. Just a nice addition to my skin care routine.
  37. Pigmentation lightened!!

    Reetika

    I have used a full bottle of this product and I have seen a noticeable difference in my acne scars and pigmentation around my mouth. My skin has brightened up as well. Nice product
  38. Great product but my bottle leaks

    Cynthia

    I've noticed lightening in some spots on my face but I took this on a trip overseas and found it leaking everywhere when on its side!

    I would tighten it closed but once on its side it would loosen and leak! My bottle was 3/4 full when I left, now its only about 1/10 full. :( .

    Would definitely transfer to a different bottle for travel. So sad because it is quite pricey!
  39. Lovely Product

    YIWEN

    very lightweight, absorbs fast and see the result quickly. Already recommended to my sis....absolutely will buy again.
  40. Lovely product

    Sarah

    I bought this product after noticing some pigmentation on my skin. While I have definitely noticed an improvement in overall skin tone and complexion, I haven't noticed a dramatic reduction in pigmentation - however I do think it has helped - I've used half the bottle so far - I use it day and night and although a little expensive the bottle is lasting a long time - so good value. I don't think any pigmentation product will work over night so I'm reasonably happy and will continue to use this.
  41. I used one week, not sure about the function

    Wei

    Some spot near my eyes, so I bought this one. I just used 1 week to now, no idea if it works. But I’m stilll hope it work
  42. Didn’t see results

    Ilona

    I have a few superficial dark marks however with continued use I did not see any results after three weeks using it twice per day. It is an oil and therefore did not absorb quickly into the skin. Disappointing, will not repurchase.
  43. Brightens and clarifies

    Nora

    Helped fade my post pregnancy pigmentation to the point where I now just use a tinted moisturiser and no longer need to conceal! I saw results within the two week mark. Be patient and consistent - you will eventually notice a difference.

    TIP: Pat onto the areas you want to fade/lighten.
  44. One of my must haves

    Sophie

    I have truly seen a difference in my skins since using this product. It's clearer, brighter and helps clear up any flare ups quickly. This is going to remain a part of my daily routine.
  45. two in 1

    Abbey

    On my second bottle now, use both day and night after cleansing and toning. When I started I did notice that it lightened up my pigmentation and brightened up my skin by making it more even skin toned. I stopped for a bit while trying another product and recently started using again, has not disappointed me as it had once lighten up my pigmentation and even out my skin tone
  46. Effective & affordable Vitamin C serum!

    cj90

    I've been using this product for over two weeks & have noticed a significant difference to my skin's radiance. Dark pigmentation around my eye area has been evened out & overall my skin looks brighter. It has a very pleasant, unoffensive scent, absorbs quickly without feeling tacky & a little goes a long way. This bottle will last me for ages but I will definitely be repurchasing!
  47. Holy grail

    Olivia

    I literally drench my entire face in this!! It smells like lavender and is like a watery/gel texture and has lightened my red acne scars that I’ve been trying to get rid of since high school, I will seriously never not use this it’s freakin AMAZINGGGGGG
  48. Notice a difference

    Jaymes

    I've noticed a difference from using this just in 2 weeks. Old scars are less visible already
  49. Wow Great Product

    Alex

    I have very old acne scars on my neck. I've tried other dark spot removers and they never really faded or did anything. I got a small sample size of this and I'm only halfway through the tiny bottle and the spots are gone. I also had redness on my cheek and chin and those are considerably faded as well. I don't understand how it works so fast and so well. It's not like I haven't tried this with other brands. This is an excellent product. I'm very tempted to buy another bottle just so I can use it on my whole face and see what else it can do.
  50. Noticed change

    Ellie

    I received a sample of this and in the week I was using it, I really did see a small change to the dark circles under my eyes. I have now repurchased it and look forward to seeing ongoing improvements.
    A small amount of this goes a long way so it’s great value for money
  51. This actually works

    RJHH via kiehls.com.au

    Ok, I’m not being silly, but my skin has never, EVER, looked this good. Seriously. My hyperpigmentation improved dramatically, after like 2 weeks.
  52. Amazing serum

    Paro via kiehls.com.au

    I bought this almost a month ago and could notice my spots lightening within few days. It has done wonders on my skin and I would definitely purchase it again.
  53. Amazing

    karissma20 via kiehls.com.au

    I have been battling with my skin for few years, I have oily, acne prone, cystic acne, I went to dermatologist twice and my skin was the same, since I am using this product I see my skin 90% better, still have some dark spots but nothing major, and also I have been using just about 1 month and a half! will purchase again and again, lovely product!
  54. This does work!

    Guilia via kiehls.com.au

    I purchased this product about 3 weeks ago and have noticed a big difference. I thought it may be just another product that makes false promises, but I must say I am very happy to be proven wrong. I never write reviews on products, I am writing this because this product does exactly what it says it will. I can not recommend this product enough. I love it. Thank you so much Kiehl's.
  55. Leaves my skin smooth and soft

    AnnieYT via kiehls.com.au

    I only started using this product a few days ago but I just had to do a review on this. As I mentioned just a few days in so all my dark spots are not corrected yet but did see them fade quite a bit (I have dark spots from monthly breakouts which take long time to heal). I love the texture of this serum and it surprised me a bit as I expected it to be an oil serum but it is instead a gel like serum which doesn't absorb as quick as the oil one and a little sticky which I like. After I apply, I just need to wait for 5 seconds and it will be all dry, leaving my face feeling so plum and hydrated. At night time I use this before put on midnight oil serum and my skin is so soft like a dream. I really like this combination together
