Comments about Philosophy Clear Days Ahead Acne Treatment Cleanser:

i have terribly sensitive skin so i was so nervous to buy this stuff because i knew it would be hard on my skin. and let me just say, yes it is hard on my skin. however, i can look past my flaky skin because this stuff does exactly what it says it will. my break outs start to become less noticeable in less than 2 days. i only use it at night and use a heavy duty night cream and my face feels less tight in the morning. after one use you can feel your pores shrink. the key to this face wash if you sensitive skin is to just use once and make sure you use a really nice moisturizer because your face will need it!

          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.

                  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.
