Several months ago I found these red patches under my eyes. I have sensitive, fair skin and I blush easily, so I figured it was a reaction of sorts. After being treated like a human lab rat by a dermatologist, I still had no answers. I wasted many an hour googling and thought I had nailed it to a sensitivity to SLS (sodium laureth sulfate), so I cut all those from my regiment and those patches didn’t seem to go away.
A little over a week ago, I was digging through my linen closet and found Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution. According to the packaging, “Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution is a fast-acting serum that evens skin tone and diminishes dark spots to impart overall radiance and luminosity to the skin.” I’ve been using it twice a day, every day since I found it and I’m happy to report that those pesky red patches are basically gone. I still don’t know what caused them, but this simply serum has made them a non-issue! Kiehl’s says the Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution will also help with acne scarring and that with continued use overall skin tone will even out and future dark spots and other skin discolorations could be prevented.
