    Comments about Philosophy Clear Days Ahead Acne Treatment Cleanser:

    This is the first cleanser that has been able to keep my "time of the month" breakouts at bay (I haven't used a cleanser that has done that before). I typically get some pretty gnarly cystic pimples every month, but this month I didn't get a single one. It does, however, severely dry out my already dry skin. I just have to be extra diligent with moisturizing, which is definitely worth it considering how much this cleanser has helped with my acne.

      Comments about Philosophy Clear Days Ahead Acne Treatment Cleanser:

      somewhat disappointed with this product. i've been using it for a month and a half to help clear up mild acne and it hasn't really done much. if anything, my skin has gotten worse (i don't think this is because of the face wash however). either my acne is really stubborn right now or this wash just isn't very effective. this is by no means a cheap face wash so i was expecting great results. when i first stated using it, my skin did get a little more dry, but i just had use more moisturizer and i was fine.

      Literally amazing! I swear by this stuff. If I had any drawbacks it would be that when I first started using it my skin got really dry, but now that I've been using it for a few year, it doesn't dry me out anymore. I love this so much

        Comments about Philosophy Clear Days Ahead Acne Treatment Cleanser:

        I've never had a face wash make my face feels like I just left the spa after one use. I'm hooked! My skin is very sensitive as well as combo so I have a rough time finding face washes that work for me. This makes my face feel SO clean (I use with my clarisonic), controls oil & break outs & improves texture. I follow up with Hope In a Bottle.

          Comments about Philosophy Clear Days Ahead Acne Treatment Cleanser:

          This is my daily face wash that I've sworn by for 4 years now. My skin is extremely sensitive and breakout prone and this is the best daily cleanser I've found. Most acne focused cleansers I've tried over the years are too harsh for daily use, but Philosophy's Clear Days Ahead line is excellent and gentle, all while being gentle and kind to your skin. What I love the most (aside from the effectiveness of this cleanser) is the clean, fresh, light scent it has. All too often, acne fighting cleansers have a medicine like smell that linger after use, but not this one! Clear Days Ahead has a lovely, subtle hint of citrus to it's aroma that is very pleasant.

            I love the Purity one step facial cleanser. I wanted to try this one because at age 44 I still get minor break outs. Proactive was getting to expensive and not working for me anymore. Used twice and my face felt clean... i messed up when i used the Proactive Green Tea moisturizer.. my mistake for not reading the bottle first.... so take it from me DO NOT USE WITH ANY OTHER MEDICATED ACNE PRODUCT. My eyes were swollen the next morning had to take a Benedryl and flush my face with ice cold water and ice packs for a few hours.
            I used it again two days later and moisturized with Shea Butter and its all good so far......am keeping it for those breakout days or summer months.
