        Amazing product. I've used this less than a week and my acne has cleared up over 75%, with no scarring. I have stubborn hormone driven acne, so this really works to help them heal super quick, and I've noticed less new breakouts as well!

          Comments about Philosophy Fast-Acting Acne Duo:

          I used this duo as suggested by the packaging and i saw improvement on my VERY oily acne prone skin after 2 days. The moisturizer is probably my favorite since it leaves my skin amazingly soft, which is shocking because many products that contain acne fighting ingredients tend to be very drying and strip the face too harshly. Highly recommend this duo. ( I am now a philosophy fan )

          I'm using the product once daily so my skin doesn't dry out. It's working great. I'm seeing results in less than a week of use.

            I am pregnant with my second child and am experiencing a fun case of hormonal adult acne... that I never got the first time. :-( I've been nervous about what to put on my skin so once I saw that Philosophy had an acne product, I knew I needed to try it. It really worked overnight (but you have to keep it up every day) and it didn't make my skin sore or itchy like acne products have in the past. I'm only using it once a day but it's exactly what I needed!

                After 4 days of use the product has completely dried out my skin and left me with a rash. I tend to have oily acne prone skin.

                  Comments about Philosophy Fast-Acting Acne Duo:

                  When I first used this product I saw improvements the next day. But then after a few days my skin stopped clearing up and kind of got worse actually. I did try a new primer the same time that I started this face wash​, so I could be breaking out from that instead. The skin under my nose and on my chin have become extremely dry and irritated also. I may try just using this face wash and lotion once a day instead of twice.
