White Space Kiehl's Dermatologist Solutions brightens up the summer.
Kiehl's Since 1851, the NYC-founded apothecary that's the darling of editors and fans worldwide, has risen to the challenge of giving their loyalists something bigger, better and brighter for 2009. Dermatologist Solutions Ultimate White Collection is now on shelves as their latest warriors in the crusade against unevenness and skin darkening.

Asians, who are notoriously more prone to hyperpigmentation that most other ethnicities, have clamored for a whitening upgrade to their already-famous Dermatologist Solutions line, renowned for their safe yet supremely efficacious formulas and at-home products for graver skin problems. The six-product skin-whitening regimen, when used properly (read: a consistent routine both day and night) completely overhauls dull, tired skin, and imparts a remarkable change in both texture and tone: immediate brightness, luminosity, and smoothing are just the beginning.

Changes are usually brought about after four weeks of use, with continued lightening resulting over time. The products, which mainly work to break down pigmentation clusters and stop the formation of melanin, have a potent, complex cocktail of ingredients like stabilized Vitamin C, botanical, and plum fruit extracts to do so. On the surface, they get help from reflective agents like mica, titanium, and bismuth oxychloride to achieve a flawless, porcelain-like glow.

Fear not the word “whitening,” either: the end results are more even-toned perfection rather than Wednesday Addams-pale, with newly refined pores and a retexturized complexion as well. Now you're ready to show those annoying, sun-worshipping freckles who's boss.

Kiehl's Dermatologist Solutions Ultimate White Collection is available at Kiehl's Since 1851, Greenbelt 5.
