Kiehl’s Introduces Dermatologist Solutions® Clearly Corrective™ White


L to R – Purifying Foaming Cleanser, Skin Brightening Exfoliator, Clarity-Activating Toner, Dark Spot Solution, Hydrating Moisture Emulsion

Every March, beauty brands in Malaysia either revamp or introduce new products to their whiteing range. In Kiehl’s case, it’s the former as the Dermatologist Solutions® Clearly Corrective™ White replaces the Ultimate White range.

This new range promotes youthful clarity while addressing the appearance of dark spots, discolourations and hyper pigmentation. The star of the range is the unique, completely clear Clearly Corrective™ Dark Spot Solution. It has been formulated to attack deep dark spots without over drying skin.

Kiehl’s is the first company in Asia to bring the formula’s key ingredient, Activated C, the latest generation Vitamin C derivative on the market, within a full product range. Kiehl’s chemists discovered that Activated C limits excessive melanin more effectively and prevents melanin clusters. Activated C breaks up existing melanin clusters, treating pigment currently present in the skin and slows down the formation of new melanin clusters.

Other than Activated C, the products contain white birch extract for hydration and peony extract which is an anti-oxidant and slows down melanin from coming to skin’s surface. All the products have a light relaxing lavender scent which I found very comforting and uplifting.

Of course as with any other brand, the entire whitening range should be used together as all the products complement each other. While the Dark Spot Solution is available worldwide, the rest of the products in the Clearly Corrective™ White range are Asia exclusives.

The prices of the Clearly Corrective™ products are as follows:-

  • Purifying Foaming Cleanser 150ml/RM100.
  • Skin Brightening Exfoliator 125ml/RM115.
  • Clarity-Activating Toner 250ml/RM125.
  • Dark Spot Solution 30ml/RM200.
  • Hydrating Moisture Emulsion 50ml/RM175.

The Ultra Light Daily UV Defense is one of Kiehl’s bestsellers as it is photo stable, meaning it has long staying power. It protects skin against premature aging. Product retails at RM140.

Do pop over to any Kiehl’s outlets to try out the products and obtain samples from the Clearly Corrective™ range. After trying out the samples, do leave a product review on Kiehl’s Facebook page [under the Clearly Corrective tab] for a chance to win a full size bottle of Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution worth RM200. Kiehl’s will be giving out 4 bottles in the month of March i.e. 1 per week for the best review of the week.

I am currently trying out the Clearly Corrective™ Dark Spot Solution and samples of the other products in the range, will be posting a review on these products in due course. One of the best things about Kiehl’s is that they have a “Try before you buy” policy so anyone can walk into their outlets and obtain samples of products before purchasing and their samples are a lot more generous than most other brands as their sample sachets are generally 5ml unlike the average 1.5ml sachet.
