    Didn't work for me

      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.

      Clear Days Ahead Face Wash

      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

          • Daily Use

          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.

            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!

                  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.
