Question
Dark skin tones
I know this product says it's for all skin tones. I'm a dark-skin African sista and I was curious whether I could use this product on my whole face because I have areas of uneven pigmentation due to acne scars, spots from wearing eyeglasses on my nose, dark circles, areas that have been uneven since I was in middle school. I appreciate your help. Thanks!

Yes you can. I am African America too. My chocolate chip spots are virtually looking like peanut butter morsels on my cappuccino complected skin. I love this product. Now they have lightened up so much I can use concealer that actually works.

I'm African-American also. I have been using this, and so far the results are good. My dark spots are getting lighter. My skin is smoother and softer. My pores aren't clogged anymore.

You should be able to use it. I use hydroquinone 4% which is a skin lightener. You should the Even Better product right along with your meds.
order: clean face, apply medical creams, apply even better, sun screen, moisturizer, and make up.

I think you would be ok. In the morning I use (in order) sun screen, clean and clear acne blemish,clinique Even Better, clinique moisturizer, then my make up. At night I use clinique Even Better, clean and clear acne blemish, hydroquinone 4% which is by prescription only its a skin lightener, and clinique moisturizer.

I have been using the product as follows and have gotten great results:

1. After I wash my face (I usually use Philosophy face wash or Ole Henrickson red tea face wash), I put the spot corrector on first. I have been putting a thin layer all over my face, not just on dark spots.

2. I follow with an antioxidant mist, such as Eco Bella spray on toner.

3. I add a moisturizer. If day time, I use an SPF moisturizer. If night time, I use my usual night cream.

4. I apply an eye cream morning and night.

5. I use a clarifying masque (either Fresh Umbrian Clay or fresh Black Tea) every few days.

Works great! Just make sure you use an SPF moisturizer of make-up during the day. I'm a scientist who studies aging, and I personally tend to think that the more you change up your skin regimen, the better, so don't be afraid to vary brands that you use while you're using the spot corrector.

Short version: Help Me is a classic retinol treatment that is mostly helpful for fine lines, a bit helpful for skin tone, and should be used all over your face as part of your night beauty regimen. Even Better only helps with dark spots and is intended to be a spot treatment during both your morning and night beauty routine.

Long version: "Help Me" by Philosophy is a night treatment that contains mostly retinol. It's good for a lot of things but is mostly good for fine lines. In contrast, "Even Better" should be used twice a day (not just at night) and is designed to help with dark spots caused by acne scars and sun damage, but will do nothing for your fine lines. (If you have them.) The primary ingredient in Even Better is CL-302 complex, which is for skin brightening. The good news is that, depending on how senistive your skin is, you can use them both. First apply Even Better as a spot treatment for your dark spots. Let it seep in for a couple of minutes and then, if necessary, use Philosophy Help Me over your face, neck, etc. as part of your night routine.

Question
how to apply the dark spot corrector?
I've just got the Dark Spot Corrector and it's unclear from the instructions whether I should apply it directly to brown spots or go all over my face? I also got the Even Better Moustirizer Skin Tone SPF 20. Would it be ok to apply it in the morning after the Dark Spot Corrector? Thank you for your time and your help!

I have acne scars on my cheeks and I apply this product evenly every night and every morning after cleansing and before applying moisturizer. Don't forget to let the moisturizer soak in before you apply this stuff!
