I don't see why not. This stuff is gentle and the skin on your back isn't as sensitive as the skin on your face. If I had someone to put it on my back for me I would. I have a few acne scars on my back. If the scars on your back are dark it might take the full 4 weeks to see a difference so don't be disspointed if you don't see a difference in a week.

i don't see why not, if it works on your face, it should work on your back.

Yes, I do believe so. I bought mine at a Clinique counter and the lady warned me to wear sunscreen daily as it has a retinol.

I can't say if it has Retinol. I can say that my skin is VERY sensitive and easily irritated. This product does nothing to irritate my skin, which Retinol does.

I have the same problem - it made the melasma a little lighter but didn't eliminate it. It worked great on acne scars.

i would definitely try it. I've been using it for 2 months and it's fading the spots I have from age and from all thesun I baked in when I was younger - sans sunblock of course.

Question
how to fit in with other products
I use this in the a.m. and p.m. but am not sure in what order to use (with moisturizer and sunscreen in a.m. and moisturizer and wrinkle products at p.m.) What order do you recommend using it in and do you need to wait between products?

If you want to see the maximum results with this product, you should

Daytime --- And exfoliate manually (with a scrub) 3-4x a week if you're oily - 2 if you're dry, less than 2x if you're very dry.
1) Cleanse
2) Exfoliate
3) Moisturize
4) Clinique Even Better Clinical
5) Booster Moisturizer with Sunscreen

At night time do steps 1-3, then you need to see how thick/thin the Even Better Clinical is vs your pm wrinkle serums/moisturizers. Keep in mind, it's best not to use anything with an spf at nighttime.

ALWAYS GO THINNEST TO THICKEST after regular moisturizer - yes, i'm telling you that you need two. A regular one, and a "booster" moisturizer. AM/PM if necessary. Sunscreen for day and wrinkle for nighttime.

Pretty much though, if you don't use a booster moisturizer over your serums, they aren't going to do much good. So always "seal" everything with your booster moisturizer - the thickest one will be the last thing you put on at nighttime.

THIS HAS CLINICAL INGREDIENTS, LIKE THE ONES A DERM WOULD PRESCRIBE, SO IT WORKS BETTER AND FASTER! TRUST ME, I'VE TRIED IT AND IT DOES WORK. IT'S ALSO FREE OF HYDROQUINONE, WHICH IS A MAJOR PLUS.

Question
Specific Use?
When would be the best time to use this stuff because I have my little routine and I don't know when to use it. I use Neutrogena face wash, Seabreeze, and occasionally moisturizer (in that order, and yes, I know I should use moisturizer more often.) Should I put it on after the Seabreeze or what?

I use this product after cleansing and before moisturizer. I don't use a toner or anything and I don't wear makeup so if you use any other products, I recommend using this product after all cleansing products have been applied/rinsed and before any other products are applied. I want this product as close to my skin as possible without having to "soak" through any other layers :)

Question
Can you layer serums?
I'm interested in purchasing the clinique dark spot corrector, but I already use a serum for fine lines. Since the dark spot corrector does not address fine lines can I layer on two serums?

I do and it doesn't irritate my skin at all. This stuff is gentle yet effective. The other serum I use is for fine lines and wrinkles as well. I also use an eye cream.

yes! It's really sheer so I used my regular moisturizer over top without feeling greasy It's recommended that you use sunscreen with it too. BUT this product didn't work for me, so hopefully you will have better luck.

Question
what are the active ingredients?
I used even better skin tone without sunscreen and now I have big patches of dark pigmentation. Counter person didn't tell me that its a msut to use spf when using that product. I have spent $$ for treatments since lasst summer but still the spots are so dark that I can't step out without makeup. even makeup doesn't cover it completely and sometimes looks even worst.
