It's an effective, two-step morning and evening approach to combating acne. The oil-free, benzoyl peroxide-free formulas are gentle yet incredibly effective, to help promote completely clear skin.

Key Benefits:

Step 1: Clear Days Ahead Oil-Free Salicylic Acid Acne Treatment Cleanser - Apply to slightly damp face, and massage for 30-60 seconds. Rinse thoroughly. Use morning and evening. If bothersome dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application to once a day or every other day.

Step 2: Clear Days Ahead Oil-Free Salicylic Acid Acne Treatment & Moisturizer - Cleanse skin thoroughly before applying medication. Cover the entire affected area with a thin layer 1-3 times daily.

If bothersome dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application to once a day or every other day.

    Comments about Philosophy Clear Days Ahead 30 Day Acne Trial Kit:

    I had a horrible patch of acne pop up out of nowhere and I had no idea what to do. I had never had acne this bad. I've had random bumps pop up here and there and I've had blackheads but this was different. I went to Ulta and told a worker about it and she told me to get this. It wasn't expensive so I figured it couldn't hurt to try and she said I could return it if I didn't like it. I took it home and read about it and on the box it said it was extremely drying and could cause peeling so I was kinda scared to use it because I have dry skin anyways but I decided to try it anyways. I noticed a difference in two days, the redness was gone out of them and they were already getting smaller. I've been using it morning and night for about a 8 days now and it is almost completely cleared up!!

    I like how you only wash the affected area and not your whole face. Also, it doesn't dry my skin out at all it just drys the bumps up.

    The product made me break out in a rash all over my face. I tried the Purity face wash and Anti-Aging Renewal moisturizer after and they made the rash worse.

      I bought this for my 11 year old and I really really wanted this to work. She uses it religiously but it is making more breakouts and huge cyst like pimples. Her poor face looks worse than ever, it breaks my heart!!! I keep reading reviews that it clears in 3 days to a week, but it is awful! I try to tell her maybe it's getting all the bacteria from the poresit wil get better... i just dont know when, and it's def not soon enough!

        I have tried countless acne products and spent a fortune trying to find something that worked without over drying my skin. I started using the Philosophy Dailey cleanser and noticed a big difference with my skin. After returning to Ulta to restock in the cleanser i noticed they had an actual acne cleansing kit. Bought it and LOVE it! Even using the products twice a day as recommended, my skin hasn't dried out and the moisturizer provided has been sufficient and non greasy, which I love!

          Comments about Philosophy Clear Days Ahead 30 Day Acne Trial Kit:

          I love this product. First of all an ulta skincare specialist directed me to this kit and I thought she was showing it to me because it was higher priced than other skincare items, but I was wrong. I saw results with these products within about the 1st week of use. Although this does dry your skin and leave it a bit flakey I use a moisturizer afterward like aquaphor or eucerin after use. I will continue to use this product because it cleared my acne.

              I tried this product only once, I used the PM steps at night, and when I woke up my skin was irritated, burning, and my cheeks were bright red and hot to the touch. Even now, 24 hours since application, my cheeks are still bright red and stinging, even though I've been slathering my face in moisturizer all day. I don't know if I was allergic to the ingredients in the product or if I have unusually sensitive skin, but I hope the redness goes any soon since I have a big presentation tomorrow!

                  I bought this for my 15 year old son who was struggling with acne. He was developing dark red and purple spots and pits were starting to form on his face. Less than one week of trying this product and his acne has disappeared!! There is still some slight pitting, so we'll have to see what happens - but the acne is cleared! He is very active in sports, primarily wrestling. The bacteria he encounters has prohibited most products from working effectively but not this one. We are sold for life!!
