Comments about Philosophy Fast-Acting Acne Duo:

when I first tried it I didn't think it worked. I gave it to my boyfriend because he has heavy acne breakouts and he loved it I asked for a BRAC because I was breaking out and used all of it I was pretty upset. So this will be a recommendation this is a must try

        Comments about Philosophy Fast-Acting Acne Duo:

        This is my first review ever on a skin care product. 2 weeks ago out of nowhere my skin broke out on my cheek, and side of my face.
        I had a pimple that had no head, and was so deep under the skin, it was all red, and so painful. I was trying everything to get rid of it. One day I was at ulta, and I came across this duo. I took a wack at it and I kid you not!!! In 4 days those nasty inflamed pimples were gone, and it soothed my skin. I love how the acne treatment + moisturizer is so soothing, and feels almost like a primer. If anything changes I will come back and update!!!

            These did not help my acne at all but also note I only get hormonal acne- so I don't recommend if you also get hormonal acne, regular acne-worth a try.

              Love this have been using it for about two weeks not. My face has cleared up a ton. I use it morning and night!!!! I bought this because I was sceptical about buying the bigger sizes way too pricey. But I will be going back to get more. Worth the purchace.

                Facial wash gave a deep cleaning and did not leave skin feeling dried out and tight. Spot/moisture treatment worked well diminishing acne without leaving dry, flaking skin.
