Clear Days Ahead Acne Spot Treatment

Item #: 2246264 Size: 0.5 oz

Say bye-bye to blemishes. Clear Days Ahead Fast-Acting Salicylic Acid Acne Spot Treatment helps rapidly clear and soothe the discomfort of bothersome blemishes for clearer skin. The antimicrobial formula immediately begins to eliminate acne-causing bacteria, while salicylic acid penetrates pores to clear most acne blemishes. It's effective, yet formulated with less potential for irritation. It quickly reduces the appearance of blemishes and features a barrier rejuvenation complex that helps soothe the redness and discomfort of blemishes for clearer skin.

Features & Benefits:
  • Antimicrobial formula immediately begins to eliminate acne-causing bacteria
  • Salicylic acid penetrates pores to clear most acne blemishes
  • Barrier rejuvenation complex helps soothe the redness and discomfort of blemishes
Cleanse the skin thoroughly before applying medication. Cover the entire affected area with a thin layer 1-3 times daily. Because excessive drying of the skin may occur, start with 1 application daily, then gradually increase to 2-3 times daily if needed or as directed by a doctor. If bothersome dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application to once a day or every other day.

Precautions: For external use only. Ask a doctor or pharmacist before using if you are using other topical acne medications at the same time or immediately following use of this product. This may increase dryness or irritation of the skin. If this occurs, only one medication should be used unless directed by a doctor. When using this product avoid contact with eyes. If contact occurs, flush thoroughly with water. Keep out of reach of children. If swallowed, get medical help or contact a Poison Control Center right away.

    I don't spend a lot of money on any face products, but the only brand I've been willing to splurge on has been Philosophy. they didn't let me down with this acne product!! I have cystic acne on my cheeks and this product has been helping so much. my acne is completely gone on one of my cheeks and has helped pimples on my forehead too. the acne on my other cheek is no longer inflamed and getting smaller by the day. it's healing me, hooray!!

    Best Uses

    • Clogged pores

    Comments about Philosophy Clear Days Ahead Acne Spot Treatment:

    I was not washing my face or even cleaning the makeup off of my face because I would get home and eat dinner, binge-watch until I got tired, then head to bed being too tired to do any of it. Then I started washing my face and that, of course, helped some but then a month or two later I started this and noticed immediate results. It feels great on the skin I apply it right after washing my face and it gives it this great tingling, cooling sensation which is how I know it is working.

            Comments about Philosophy Clear Days Ahead Acne Spot Treatment:

            This made my face super oily where I applied it. When applying, it dab it on and wait a couple seconds and I can feel it tingling. I only put this on before bed, but I don't feel like it helped all that much, especially for the price. A small amount goes a long way though.
