clears and prevents acne

By sassmaster

from South Carolina

Comments about Philosophy Clear Days Ahead Acne Treatment Cleanser:

Super gentle for an acne cleanser. It does tighten the skin but it doesn't leave it dry. It's effective in clearing acne and preventing acne. Goes great with a cleansing system like a clarisonic or a foreo.

Comments about Philosophy Clear Days Ahead Acne Treatment Cleanser:

I loved the way this product cleansed my skin, however I think the Salylic acid content is to harsh for my skin leaving my skin red. I think this product would be great for someone with oil skin though.

      Amazing Product

      By Cherie

      from Buffalo, NY

      Comments about Philosophy Clear Days Ahead Acne Treatment Cleanser:

      I love this stuff. I have moderate adult acne due to my birth control, and this is the first thing I've found that's worked. I love that is contains salicylic acid instead of benzoyl peroxide. This has cleared my skin up without creating dry patches. I order several bottles at a time when they're 5X points on philosophy purchases. I'll never switch.

        This is the best cleanser I have found for adult acne control. It is gentle enough to use every day, but really cleans without over drying.
