Kiehl's Clearly Corrective: 3 Products That Made My Blemishes Disappear in 3 Weeks

Kiehl's Clearly Corrective Review

Moving to a rural area, I had this mindset that the air was fresher, cleaner, and I wouldn’t have to deal with the pollution from cars and buses. I was so wrong. I never realized that moving here, just a few towns from an oil refinery and a power plant where my husband works, would be so bad especially for my skin.
Isn’t it enough that I’ve got hormonal acne to deal with? Now, I’m also breathing air that’s bad for me. My asthma was triggered in just a week and I had to go home to the south for a few days.

Kiehl's Clearly Corrective Review

I just feel like it’s more polluted here compared to the city life. I see and feel bugs crawling everywhere. I need to sweep and mop the floor two to three times everyday because it just keeps on getting dirty. Where is all the dirt and dust coming from anyway? I just have no idea, so I’m assuming it’s in the air that comes into our home.

Aside from actual dirt and pollution, I have to share that there are no jeeps, cabs, nor grab drivers here. We have real buses - the ones that go to Manila, mini-buses – the small non-air-conditioned buses you see in old Filipino movies, and tricycles. Those three are the main modes of public transportation here.

After a week of living in this new place, I noticed my skin was looking dead, so I decided to use the Clearly Corrective Line. They’ve actually got four products in this line, but let me introduce you to the three products I’ve used.

Kiehl's Clearly Corrective Brightening & Exfoliating Daily Cleanser

The Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Brightening & Exfoliating Daily Cleanser efficiently removes traces of pollution, dirt, and residue while refining skin texture for a noticeable smoother and more luminous appearance. Its main ingredients are Pearlstone, a gentle exfoliant that helps refine and brighten the look of skin; White Birch Extract, which helps to visibly even skin tone; and peony extract, which works well with Activated C to enhance skin clarity.

I think this is the gentlest exfoliating cleanser I've ever tried. You can see these white micro beads which are actually Pearlstones and they are natural exfoliants derived from volcanic ash. It's a little crazy to think that you're using volcanic ash on your face, but hey, it's really effective. It has a subtle scent and the texture is quite thick, a little gooey-like, and the Pearlstones are so small and gentle that it's suitable to use on an everyday basis. I didn't notice any drying of skin nor dry patches like other exfoliators do, and it leaves my skin feeling clean, yet plump. Not dry.

Kiehl's Clearly Corrective Brightening & Soothing Treatment Water

PHP 2,265 for 200 ml

This treatment water instantly refreshes skin, hydrates, and visibly brightens with continued use to diminish the look of dullness and improve skin’s natural clarity overtime. Its key ingredients are Licorice Root, known for its soothing and calming properties, Activated C, which helps to visibly even skin tone and improve clarity; and White Birch Extract, which restores hydration to the skin.

Kiehl’s chemists carefully balanced the formula to deliver the right concentration of humectant ingredients to preserve skin moisture without the dreaded feeling of heaviness or stickiness.

This product can be applied in two ways, via a cotton pad or with our palms. Sometimes I prefer using my palms in terms of application just because I feel like I can pat the product more into my face and neck.

This treatment water is what I would call luminous in a bottle. It just brightens and hydrates my skin in an instant. No, this isn't a moisturizer, but it just leaves my skin feeling refreshed with every application. It doesn't feel sticky nor heavy... and yet it just delivers moisture into my very dehydrated skin. I think what I like the most about this product is that it dries matte, but it leaves your skin with a glow.

Kiehl's Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution Review

Those stubborn dark spots as a result of sun exposure or acne need a more concentrated formula for them to fade away. This is where the Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution Serum comes in. Formulated with Activated C, White Birch Extract, and Peony Extract, it diminishes the number and intensity of deep-set dark spots and skin discoloration over time.

I think this is my favorite product out of the whole Kiehl's Clearly Corrective line. I always bring this whenever I travel and I'm very thankful that the bottle hasn't broke on me after all this time. It comes in a glass bottle and I love the dropper that it comes with. It's very precise and I never waste any product at all.

The liquid is a little tacky compared to the Midnight Recovery Concentrate. It's more of a serum rather than an oil and it dries very quickly and very matte which I love. This is perfect for people who hate waiting for their skincare products to dry... I actually think the whole Kiehl's Clearly Corrective line dries quite fast. Anyway, I never experienced any stinging nor flaking while using this serum. It just lightens my pimple marks, dark spots, and any discoloration on my skin as days go by. I use it twice a day, in the morning and at night, and this is the effect that I had after three weeks. I noticed that some of my pimple marks were gone and some were on their way to say goodbye. I also noticed that it works faster on new blemishes rather than older ones.

Before and after of using the Kiehl's Clearly Corrective line for three weeks.

There's actually another product in the line which is called the Clearly Corrective Brightening & Smoothing Moisture Treatment. It's the fourth step in the daily battle against dullness and roughness of skin. It's also formulated with Activated C, White Birch Extract, and Glycolic Acid. It helps reduce the appearance of discolorations and rough texture for clearer, brighter skin. The moisturizer provides intense hydration and locks down the three products applied prior.

After three weeks of using the Kiehl's Clearly Corrective line, I'm very impressed with the outcome of my skin. I know that it costs more than other brands, but I'd rather stick to products that really work instead of trying different products with mediocre results. I'll surely be purchasing the Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution Serum once it runs out because it has been the most effective lightening serum that I've tried on the market. It's something I'll stick with through the years.

    Is the Corrective Dark Spot Solution comparable to the Klairs Freshly Juiced Serum which is also raved about? :) I love Khiels, no doubt but super mahal kasi! :)

  21. I'm not very familiar with Klairs. Just tried one product from them. Maybe they're using similar ingredients!

  22. the dark spot solution serum, in all fairness, wala pa ko sa half ng bottle :)

  23. i believe meron sila. They have try before you buy in their stores. You can ask for facial wash sachets, moisturizer sachets. They will check your skin first, saglit lang naman yun, then they will give you samples :)
