    I love this product. As with any acne treatments your skin may get a little worse before it gets better. This has been really helping my acne. It has been so bad lately and I've been trying everything, but this is helping so much. Just make sure you are consistent with it and use it daily both morning and night.

      All though the product is greasy on the skin at first, after about a week of use my skin is growing and my acne started clearing up after 2 days of use. I would highly recommend this product to anyone who wants to clear up their skin without peeling or irritation.

        Caused dryness and peeling. An in store employee recommended it over another product. I had my doubts and felt she had never really tried because I heard her tell another customer she preferred a certain product.

          This product smells great! However, did not work for me. My face now has even more acne out of nowhere and constantly itches. I had to stop this product and will never buy this product again in result of this. My face is burning as well!

            It great I bought this kit awhile back and it was great! I only stopped using it because I suck at routines. Started using it again because I have two very stubborn pimples that I have even resorted to popping them put they wont even do that! I have been using this for a few days and skin has improved greatly. I also did the math and it is a great bargain waiting for restock.

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

            These products worked great in the beginning. I was skeptical of these products because they claimed improvement in 3 days.I saw improvement in blemishes in the first 3 days, but when your skin starts to improve, you will also have blemishes that are under the surface that will come to the surface. For the first week and a half, my skin got worse, and then started to drastically improve. I thought this product was going to be a great find, but by week 3, my skin had started to break out badly again.

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

                I bought this kit with hopes it would help with my slight acne. After the first few days most of my breakouts became minimal, leaving only slight redness of where they were. However, after about a week the space between my eyes, my high cheek and my chin area became so dry and scaly it was unbearable. I do tend to have slightly sensitive skin so that could be why, but other than that it did help my break outs. It was just too drying for me.

                    I have minor acne and decide to purchase this product to help prevent any acne. I was fine the first two days and loved this product but on the 3rd day I developed a rash on my cheeks and it was going to my neck. I couldn't come out of my house for two days because my face felt so hot, itchy, and the rash was so red I wanted to just cry. My skin is super sensitive and I told the ultra worker that and she said this brand is for sensitive skin. I wish I would have never tried it.
