  • Ineffective

Best Uses

  • Dry Skin

Comments about Philosophy Clear Days Ahead Acne Treatment Cleanser:

I wanted to love this product, especially after reading all of the great reviews of not only this product, but Philosophy as a whole. I live in Mid-Missouri and have combination, oily, acne-prone skin. This made my face even more oily and did absolutely nothing for my acne breakout. The search will continue for my "holy grail" cleanser.

      Comments about Philosophy Clear Days Ahead Acne Treatment Cleanser:

      This is hands down the best adult acne cleanser I've used. I am mid 50s with rosacea and this is the only cleanser that helps keep my redness and breakouts at bay. It smells fantastic without being perfumy. A little goes a long way. It comes in a handy pump bottle, convenient for the counter top. I use this as my morning cleanser, after removing makeup at night with either It's Bye Bye Makeup cleansing balm or Clinique Take the Day Off balm.

        I have combination skin and acne treatment items usually makes my face dry out really bad but this did NOT do that. I'm coming into my second week of using it twice a day and my skin hasn't gotten dried out and it's actually clearing up.

          Comments about Philosophy Clear Days Ahead Acne Treatment Cleanser:

          This face wash cleared up my acne that I had been fighting for a couple of years! I have oily skin and although I wish it dried out my tzone just a tad more, it's been great at controlling oil and reducing my acne scars. I was nervous to but an "expensive" face wash, sense nothing I had tried worked, but this stuff lasts forever! I've actually saved so much money because one bottle literally lasts me about 6 months. Totally worth it in every way

                  Tried this out because it's supposed to be a good one...it completely dries out my sensitive combination skin. I was also told by someone who had worked for Philosophy for two years that it's terrible for your skin and she felt awful selling it to people. Will not be using this ever again.
