Comments about Philosophy Clear Days Ahead Acne Treatment Cleanser:

I am in mid 30's, I get hormonal Tzone monthly breakouts, mainly chin area. When I started this product it was very effective in drying out existing pimples and bringing up my black heads and what I mean by that... The black heads would come out and turn into small white heads that would be very easy to clean off and then they would heal up and go away...but unfortunately this product was too drying for my entire face , even with the use of moisturizer, I even got a mild rash that lasted a few days...so now I use "Purity" on a daily basis and only use "clear days" on my chin area during my breakout week of the month. I find that this combination works best for me to cleanse and fight my pimples.

          Comments about Philosophy Clear Days Ahead Acne Treatment Cleanser:

          I used it for about a month which may or may not be good enough to determine whether it works for me or not... But my acne got so much worse and my face got so much drier while using this and it didn't get better. I know when switching products it takes some time for your face to adjust, but I am not willing to go more than a month with terrible looking skin when I still cannot be 100% sure it will work for me.
          It smells great, and it's easy to use it just wasn't meant for me.

          Comments about Philosophy Clear Days Ahead Acne Treatment Cleanser:

          This is a very strongly cleaning gel, and it can overdry my sensitive skin if I try to use it daily, so I use it about every three washes and it is perfect. It smells very nice and does seem to help my breakouts, but can really dry me out if I use it too often. I think it would be a perfect daily cleanser for people with oily skin!

          Comments about Philosophy Clear Days Ahead Acne Treatment Cleanser:

          My face has been freaking out for a while now, and I've tried everything at the drugstores, but as you could guess, nothing worked. I tried this and within 2 days I saw a big change in skin but by the 3rd day my skin felt irritated and then by the 4th day my face was swollen and it started flaking. It felt like a severe sunburn on my face. I'm not sure if I had an allergic reaction or if it was too harsh for me, but if you don't have sensitive skin I highly recommend because you do see results. I wish I could continue using this product, because it's the only thing that's ever worked.

            I have only had a couple of breakouts since using this product. It is proven to keep your skin clear with little worries of a breakout.

            Not impressed

              Comments about Philosophy Clear Days Ahead Acne Treatment Cleanser:

              I bought this and was not impressed. I do quite well with the standard Neutrogena. Much cheaper and gets the job done. However! Now that I have purchased the Mia 1 Clarisonic this might be a plausible option for that device. As long as this product does not have the little beads in it. I think it does but there weren't a bunch of them so maybe you can pick them out. I don't have this anymore but maybe perhaps my only use for it would be in conjunction with another device like the clarisonic. But besides this, I felt like I wasted my money because I'ts not a reliable product to handle oily, acne prone skin like much other cheaper options can. I would say that if you have normal skin this might also be a good option for you to use in the hot and humid summers, when you feel your cream based cleanser for the dry fall/winter seasons and you need something slightly more stringent, yet gentle during warmer seasons.

                    A:

                    we do not recommend using a clarisonic while you are experiencing an active breakout. if you are not experiencing an active breakout, you may be able to use the clear days ahead cleanser with your clarisonic 1-2 times a week for deep cleansing.
