      Amazing Product

      By Cherie

      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.

            I used Murad for years for my Acne prone skin, I fell in love with the philosophy line and tried this and it works just as well as Murad but cheaper and smells great!

              best face wash ever

              from Washington, DC

              Comments about Philosophy Clear Days Ahead Acne Treatment Cleanser:

              I will never use another face wash. I started breaking out for the first time in my life in my early 20s, so I switched to this face wash and my skin cleared up so quickly and it's stayed clear since. I use it every morning, and use Purity at night. I have sensitive skin and haven't found it to be drying.

                Comments about Philosophy Clear Days Ahead Acne Treatment Cleanser:

                Living in a dry state like Colorado has made me significantly step up my skin regimen. Philosophy products in general have taken my skin care game to the next level, and the Acne Treatment doesn't disappoint. I use this product primarily when I have a hormonal break out. It clears up my acne quickly- typically within a day. Product absorbs easily. Product can be a bit drying. Back it up with moisturizer. A tad pricey, but I'm worth it so I'll keep buying it.

                  The smell is mild, gentle on skin but effective. Skin feels very refreshed after use.
