Happy Tuesday beautiful people and here is wishing you a great start to the week! I had a busy weekend (as per usual) and during it I finally got around to taking photos and writing about the Kiehl’s Clearly Collective range. I’ve been using the range for just about 2 months now, almost religiously (of course minus my usual cleanser and moisturizer). The range (that’s available in South Africa) consists of the Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution, the Clearly Corrective Skin Brightening Exfoliator and the Clearly Corrective Clarity-Activating Toner. The range is aimed at anyone who has any concerns with dark spots, pigmentation and/or uneven skin tone, so if that’s right up your ally, then stick around! Out of the 3 products I am utterly obsessed with one, not too in love it the second one, and still giving a third one a go.

Let’s start with me favourite product- the Clearly Corrective Skin Brightening Exfoliator (R650). I’m not super good with my exfoliating as in I don’t always do it religiously, but this product has changed my skin care routine!


The exfoliator promises to effectively cleanse and exfoliate your pores to minimize skin irregularities & dullness for a noticeably brighter complexion. At first sight, it comes out of the tube in a paste-like consistency and you can feel and see the granules in it straight away. You only need a nickel size amount for it to lather nicely, which means that the product really does go a long way.


You can feel the little granules straight away but the exfoliator is so gentle and soft that you can use it every night without it stripping away your skin.


Afterwards your skin feels quite literally squeaky clean, as you can hear a gentle squeak when you rub your face. It is the perfect thing to cleanse your face wonderfully and I am quite obsessed and can’t live with it in my skincare routine.


The second part of the regime in the Clearly Corrective range is the Clarity Activating Toner(R550). Now I’m not going to lie to you, I am not amazing when it comes to toning. Some nights I do it, and other nights I couldn’t be bothered (smacks hand). The truth is, toning is extremely important in your everyday skincare routine as it has many benefits such as hydration, restoring the skins pH level and soothing it. This toner is packed with Activated Vitamin C which penetrates rapidly to attack deep-set dark spots while preventing the formation of new discolorations for visibly more uniform skin tone and clarity. If you are concerned with dark spots and the skins texture then this is a must-have for you. How do I feel about it? Well to be honest with you I am still getting to know this product and what I do know so long is the effect it’s had on my skins texture. I use it at night after cleansing and it does make a difference. I am still getting to know it and its long-term effects so I will get back to you on this after a few months.


Lastly, we have as to what is often referred to as the hero of the range, the Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution(R750). I mentioned it here before, so I’m not going to repeat myself too much. It is a great product if you are concerned with dark spots and pigmentation. It’s easy to use and can be added into any skin care routine almost seamlessly. Check it out and of course for better results I would recommend using the whole range together.


This range is now available at all Kiehl’s stores
