    Use it in the shower since it needs to be lathered for 30 seconds. It's not the most convient face care, but it works! Great price for prestige skin care also.

        Comments about Philosophy Clear Days Ahead Acne Treatment Cleanser:

        So I had to look for a new product regarding washes for acne due to insurance. I came across this acne wash (and the acne moisturizer), and was very skeptical to buy it because of the pricing together. Oh my goodness!! I have had acne since 5th grade, and now being a sophomore in college my skin had never looked this clear!! I have oily/combination skin, and this clears that up! I also have very large pores, and I have noticed that they have shrunk tremendously since I've began using it. My face is just ao soft and smooth. It says it's an "orange scent" but I smell lemongrass, which is fine with me, I love that smell too. Great product, worth the price!!!

          Comments about Philosophy Clear Days Ahead Acne Treatment Cleanser:

          I've been using this product for over a year. I've had oily, acne prone skin since I was a teenager. Since using this product, the breakouts stopped, my skin felt clean and the use of foundation was minimized. This is not a product for skin that is dry as it will cause your pores to over activate, thereby creating more acne. You have to have a fine balance when it comes to right acne product. My daughter has dry, acne prone and it made her break out more. I've since purchased Philosophy Purity for her and things have improved. I ran out of Clear Days and started using Purity myself. While it's a fine product, my skin starts to feel oily after a couple of hours. I will be going back to Clear Days very shortly as I find that side effect very irritating and a couple acne spots popped up.

            Comments about Philosophy Clear Days Ahead Acne Treatment Cleanser:

            I've only been using this for a week but so far, the results are great! It does dry my skin out, but only where the breakouts are, that's what I want! My blackheads are essentially GONE and all of the little breakouts that I had are starting to disappear. I have not had a new breakout since starting this! I'm excited! I'm almost 27 and have struggled with acne since I was about 13. Tried everything from prescriptions to proactive, to drugstore brands and even very expensive salon brands (like Aveda Outer Peace). Some of it worked but really hurt my skin (proactive) or helped my skin but not enough to pay the price of it (Aveda). I only purchased the Clear Days Ahead face wash, I think that I will eventually purchase some of the other products in the line, I just wanted to try it first. Thank you Philosophy for finally making a gentle, yet effective product!!!

              Absolutely love this face wash! I have very acne prone & oily skin, and have tried almost everything out there with no results. I received this as a gift and fell in love with it yh the morning after i used it. I feel confident in my skin again and don't feel the need to wear foundation. I do recommend using a moisturizer if dryness occurs but other than that you should definitely buy this product.
