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.

It says to apply SPF after using it, so I usually apply Hope in a Jar SPF 30 by Philosophy afterwards. This way, I get a moisturizer and SPF in one shot. My skin still stays glowy and it works just as well!

My skin tends to be sensitive and benzoyl peroxide products have not been an issue. Go for it, but apply SFP!!!

answer 2
Yes, of course! I have been suffering from persistent acne for over 7 years, and so I have lots and lots of acne scars to prove it. I'm still using products with benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid along with this serum, and can report nothing negative.
Most acne products are meant to work together. Just make sure you're cleansing, toning, seruming (yes, I made up that word) twice a day and moisturizing with an SPF.
Good luck!

Question
Can I use this product while being in the sun?
Will going in the sun affect the use of this serum? For example, can I use the serum every day and night and go tanning during the day? Tanning bed and outside sun? I've stopped the serum because I go tanning and they seem countereffective but I would like to continue fading my acne spots. Or will this serum just mess up the tanning?

Please note I am aware of the consequences of tanning and sunbathing. I am only asking how the sun or UV rays will affect my use of this serum. I know some products you shouldn't go in the sun so I was wondering.

You cannot tan and use this product at the same time. When using this product you must use SPF for it to work correctly. Tanning will darken any hyper-pigmentation you are trying to fade. It won't react badly in the sun, but you will be wasting your money if you're tanning.

Under no circumstances should you ever expect acne spots to go away with sun exposure! In fact, it's positively the worst thing you can do. Sun exposure will darken acne spots and make them even more permanent.
So it you're expecting this serum to with in tandem with your tanning, don't kid yourself.
The only way to truly get rid of acne spots is to use this serum with at least SPF 25 every day, and apply twice daily.
Tanning not included.

Apply the product before you moisturize, the SPF moisturizer protects your skin while the spot corrector is working.

The consultant at the counter advised me to use it on the entire face, not only on the spots or areas you want corrected.

If you need two pumps to cover the amount of area you want, then its totally fine! Just be sure to let the lotion sink into your skin and you really only need a thin layer. The only issue of using two pumps instead of one means you'll be using up the bottle faster.
