Kiehl's: L'Oreal luxury division to offer post-summer sun care with Photo-Age Corrector System launching in September. Kiehl's four-product kit - made up of Deep-Action Exfoliating Cleanser, Activated Toner, Intensive Corrective Moisturizer and High-Potency Spot Treatment - addresses hyperpigmentation to even out discoloration "in as little as four weeks," company says.

System is available for $59 online
