    Comments about Philosophy Clear Days Ahead Acne Treatment Cleanser:

    I've heard SO many rave reviews about Philosophy, so I finally decided to try it out. I have combination skin that is very acne prone even at age of 28! The very first time I used this product I felt an intense tingly feeling. I figured there would be an adjustment phase where my face needed to get used to a new product. I started by using it twice a day, then down to just once a day. I gave it a little over a week before totally giving up. It irritated my skin so badly. I felt burning and itching throughout the day, and it left my skin beyond dry, to the point where it was peeling as if I were sun burnt. For about 4 days after I stopped using it, my face was so sensitive that it hurt when I just touched it. I hate that I couldn't fall in love with this because I really wanted to. But this is definitely not the cleanser for me.

        Comments about Philosophy Clear Days Ahead Acne Treatment Cleanser:

        After struggling with acne for over 10 years I can finally say that I have found a product that does everything it says it will! I have tried numerous OTC and Rx products over the years and they would either work for a little, completely dry my face out, or wouldn't even make a difference. I have been using this product and the other items in the Clear Days Ahead line for over a month now and I can honestly say, with tears in my eyes, that I am nearly blemish free. This product and the rest in the line are worth EVERY penny. Thank you Philosophy for giving me my skin back!!!!

          My sweet friendly Ulta manager recommended this to me. While I like the lather and smell so much better than philosophy purity, I am not sure it is really a game changer of a product. Verdict still out.

          Comments about Philosophy Clear Days Ahead Acne Treatment Cleanser:

          I have been searching high and low for years for something that really makes a big impact on my skin. I have tried every drug store face wash and I have even tried plenty higher priced ones like proactive and murad. I liked murad acne cleanser but after some time I just felt like I made a U turn and just wasn't getting good results anymore. I have heard a million and one good things about philosophy and their products. So after reading some reviews I said why not. And boy am I glad I did.

          My skin had NEVER, I repeat, NEVER looked better! I am 23 and I get the occasional break out around my chin and hairline. I have been using this product for about a month and I have seen a dramatic reduction in the amount of little pesky bumps. But what I love even more is my skin looks flawless. Even with a bump or two my skin still looks radiant, fresh, even and flawless. The amount of oil on my face (because I'm EXTREAMLY oily) has cut back dramatically which is a big deal because NOTHING has ever helped with that not a bit. Unless your someone who thinks that you can actually achieve the "flawless" looking skin that the girl in the commercials or magazines have you will love this stuff. And I promise you to everyone else your skin WILL look like the ladies in those magazines. I can't tell you the compliments I have gotten since starting this stuff. And all I do is was morning and night, pair it with aveeno daily moisturizer and exfoliate once a week with a hand brush. I would die before I stop using this stuff.

            Comments about Philosophy Clear Days Ahead Acne Treatment Cleanser:

            I have normal to dry skin and used this product in conjunction with Philosophy Clear Days Ahead moisturizer. Way too drying, though I didn't feel like it because the moisturizer is heavy, but also drying. I bought this because recently I have been breaking out a lot and this made it worse.
            I give it a 3 because I see how this would be a great product for someone with breaks out with extremely oily skin but this product really isn't for me.

              After spending lots of $$$ and years of searching for the right product, I finally found it in Philosophy. I am now a lifer for their products. I am prone to adult acne and always fought the never ending battle of a pimple popping up. Since using this product, I've gotten ONE pimple. And it was cleared up in two days. I will forever use this product and pray that they don't discontinue it. Going 6 months with only 1 pimple is an absolute dream, in my opinion and well worth the money.

                  I am a philosophy fanatic... I have been using Purity Made Simple for more than a year and my skin loves that stuff, but here lately my face has become accustom to the formula and I thought I would spice up my regimen by adding this wash. (I have sensitive skin, I won't say that I'm prone, however I do breakout from time to time)... Let me first start out by saying that I love that this wash comes with a pump and the scent is nice and refreshing, but my skin did not love it. I'm guessing my face didn't respond well to the salicylic acid, b/c it did improve the occasionally breakouts, and I did notice smaller, rash like bumps on my forehead. I will be discontinuing the use of this product.

                    I am 29 years old and sufer from adult acne. I have used literally over $500 worth products trying to clear up my skin. Everything made my acne worse. So at Christmas my mother bought this wash for me. I washed my face with it on Christmas Eve, at the time I had 3 large zits and 7-8 smaller zits on my chin. I washed my fash with Philosophy clear, I used my regular Neutrogena Clear Pore Oil-Controlling Astringent and Moisturize with Oil of Olay Daily Lotion. Literally within 24 hours the zits on my forehead where gone and I had 3 pimples let on my chin. I use this remedy twice a day. The face wash may seem pricey but it lasts literally 4 Months.
