When I think of brightening products I oftentimes associate it with whitening. But truth is brightening products help combat dull, rough-textured, tired looking skin. So when Kiehl’s Philippines sent over their new formulated products that focuses on specific skin concerns I mentioned, I gave it a shot and tried it for two straight weeks.
Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective line: Clearly Corrective Brightening & Exfoliating Daily Cleanser, Clearly Corrective Brightening & Soothing Treatment Water and Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution
Clearly Corrective Brightening & Exfoliating Daily Cleanser, Php 1,495
The Clearly Corrective Brightening & Exfoliating Daily Cleanser’s main ingredients are Pearlstone, a gentle exfoliant that helps refine and brighten the look of th skin; White Birch Extract, which helps to visible even skin tone; and Peony Extract, which works wells with Activated C to enhance skin clarity.
what I love about this: It doesn’t give my skin that squeaky feeling but instead gives a smooth feeling after. Best part? It’s gentle enough to be used everyday and half a pea size is all I need to clean my face. This works whether you have dry or combination skin like I do.
Clearly Corrective Brightening & Soothing Treatment Water, Php 2,265
Key ingredients are Liquorice Root, known for its soothing an calming properties; Activated C, which helps to visibly even skin tone and improve clarity; and White Birch Extract which restores hydration to the skin. Kiel’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.
what I love about this: water consistency yet you can clearly see its pearlized appearance (you have to shake the bottle before using). It does make my skin brighten (almost instantly) and it’s non-sticky so I was able to use it despite the humid over summer.
Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution, Php 2,995
Stubborn dark spots are result of sun exposure or acne. For these to fade you need a more concentrated formula and this is where Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution 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 was having a bad skin phase the week before I tried Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective line. I broke out and it left a few dark spots on my cheeks. It was prefect timing for me to try the line. I let go of my other skin care products during the two weeks I was trying Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective line just to see its efficacy.
Lo and behold, two weeks after using Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective line religiously (night and day) here’s how my skin looks. Dark and acne spots have faded! And my skin really looks bright. So much so that I have’t had a facial during the time I’ve been using Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective line yet my skin looks good. I barely put on any makeup too. I love it!
Even though I’m tan, I love how my skin looks clear & well bright! Here I was with my daughter Gabbie with barely any makeup on. I just brushed on Laura Mercier Candleglow powder, groomed my brows with Maybelline Browprecise and used K-Palette 1 Day Tattoo Lasting Lip Tint Stick.
