I was first introduced to Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Skin Brightening Exfoliator when I was searching for a new exfoliator. I had been using LUSH’s Ocean Salt Scrub for awhile and even though I loved the smell, I didn’t like how the salt crystals disintegrated so easily. The “Clearly Corrective” line had just come out recently so it was fairly new and there weren’t that many reviews on it (trust me, I looked!). I used it every other morning in the shower and at first I thought it was just a big ol’ waste of money. But then after using about half the bottle I noticed that my skin was so clear and dare I say it… bright! So after that, I have been hooked ever since.

I do have to mention that I do not have many dark spots on my face other than some freckles so I haven’t noticed if it really reverses noticeable skin discoloration. I do get acne every so often (ok, every month…) and after using this on a consistent basis I saw that my face was clearer and smoother than normal. The consistency is like a soft, liquid paste. I really enjoy the smell of this too – reminds me of a spa. When you add water, it becomes a nice foam and after rinsing, your face feels so sqeaky clean! Which is a good thing but a bad thing if you have naturally dry skin.
Final thoughts: I am on my second bottle… which means that I used up the first bottle and liked it so much I went out and bought another one! I am a bit picky on consistency and this is the perfect in between. I like that it doesn’t feel like it’s scratching my skin but at the same time doesn’t disintegrate once it hits water. The added benefit of it reversing discoloration and brightening my skin is even better! 5/5
Until next time …
