What is the difference between this product and help me by philosophy.

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.

Personally I used Philosophy's Boost Powder prior to this for weeks, however the result is not as good as this one. I have used it for around 2 weeks already and it really show some improvement.

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!

Moisturizer goes all over. The dark spot corrector just goes on the spots.

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!

Question
Can the product be used just as spot treatment?
Instead of using it all over the face could you just use it for the acne scars? Also, is there a cheaper product that works?

This is exactly how I use it - only on the dark spot, not all over. A q-tip makes spot treatment really easy.

I personally don't have any experience with the pregnancy mask, but I was talking to a woman who used this to get rid of her mask, and her skin was virtually perfect.
She did say that it took about a year to clear up, and you must use moisturizer with at least SPF 25, or sunscreen, every day. But it definitely worked.

incapsulated salicylic acid, vit.c and a patented botanical blend. it's not a "spot" treatment, you use it on your whole face because it improves radiance all over, which softens the look of the spots while it treats them.

Fading sun damage?
I am 26 and VERY fair skinned. I used to wear SPF religiously or at least make up with SPF in it. Since going au natural I have noticed sun damage on my cheeks. I have some freckling and one small brown spot. Help! What is the best product for me? Which chemicals do I want to look for? I also need help reducing the pore size on my nose, Am I too young for a chemical peel? Can I do one at home?

Thanks, Abby

chemical peels are probably best left to be done by a facial consultant. Have you tried any products that have soy in them? Try looking for products that have vitamin c and vitamin e as well

I have fair skin and it is also sensitive and I have used Cliniques even better clinical dark spot corrector on my whole face without irritation and without breakouts. I use it with the turnaround concentrate and it has made my pores and brown spots disappear and it lasts about 4-6 months and is definitely worth the money.

Of course! I have oily skin and its perfect- soaks right into your skin. I believe its best applied first, before any moisturizer or acne medication.

My understanding is that it is only for face - but it may work on hands as well. I have been using it on my face for a couple of years now and it does work, but takes a little while to show results (when they say 4-6 weeks they're not joking). However it's pretty gentle, so I would say keep using it until it's gone, and if there are no results after the said time period, then don't purchase it again. Hope that helps!

Although it's a face project it should work for your hands. You do have to give it 3 months before it says it will completely work.
