Clear Days Ahead Acne Spot Treatment

Item #: 2246264 Size: 0.5 oz

Say bye-bye to blemishes. Clear Days Ahead Fast-Acting Salicylic Acid Acne Spot Treatment helps rapidly clear and soothe the discomfort of bothersome blemishes for clearer skin. The antimicrobial formula immediately begins to eliminate acne-causing bacteria, while salicylic acid penetrates pores to clear most acne blemishes. It's effective, yet formulated with less potential for irritation. It quickly reduces the appearance of blemishes and features a barrier rejuvenation complex that helps soothe the redness and discomfort of blemishes for clearer skin.

Features & Benefits:
  • Antimicrobial formula immediately begins to eliminate acne-causing bacteria
  • Salicylic acid penetrates pores to clear most acne blemishes
  • Barrier rejuvenation complex helps soothe the redness and discomfort of blemishes
Cleanse the skin thoroughly before applying medication. Cover the entire affected area with a thin layer 1-3 times daily. Because excessive drying of the skin may occur, start with 1 application daily, then gradually increase to 2-3 times daily if needed or as directed by a doctor. If bothersome dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application to once a day or every other day.

Precautions: For external use only. Ask a doctor or pharmacist before using if you are using other topical acne medications at the same time or immediately following use of this product. This may increase dryness or irritation of the skin. If this occurs, only one medication should be used unless directed by a doctor. When using this product avoid contact with eyes. If contact occurs, flush thoroughly with water. Keep out of reach of children. If swallowed, get medical help or contact a Poison Control Center right away.

    Comments about Philosophy Clear Days Ahead Acne Spot Treatment:

    I use this product to spot treat only. I have sensitive rosacea skin with acne and oily skin in the moderate to severe range. This will dry up and exfoliate the blemish your treating quite fast, usually overnight, as well as improve redness from the blemish. You will definitely exfoliate in the area of application! This has been very effective and the most gentle product I've tried yet for my rosacea acne.

    This stuff contains salicylic acid, effectively treats even cystic acne without drying my face out, and doesn't have an offensive smell like the moisturizer in this line. All good things, and I'll buy it again.

      I needed a treatment for my chin. I didn't want something that would dry my skin out and make it flake. This product is great. I dabed a small amount on my chin and with in 24 hours I saw results and had no drying.

      I use it for an active pimple or one I feel coming to surface. Be careful to only apply to the affected area because it will dry out the surrounding skin.

          Second time buying this product for my teenage daughter. It works very effectively. Tried getting away with a pharmacy brand but she complained about how drying it was and it didn't eliminate her acne. So I came back to the tried and true.

            I don't spend a lot of money on any face products, but the only brand I've been willing to splurge on has been Philosophy. they didn't let me down with this acne product!! I have cystic acne on my cheeks and this product has been helping so much. my acne is completely gone on one of my cheeks and has helped pimples on my forehead too. the acne on my other cheek is no longer inflamed and getting smaller by the day. it's healing me, hooray!!
