    Comments about Philosophy Clear Days Ahead Acne Treatment Cleanser:

    Great choice for myself! Scared I couldn't smell the product before purchasing as I am sensitive to fragrance. Shocked! Clean fresh smell without the hard chemical, floral smell most have. I do have acne prone skin and this is helping. Possibly going through a purging stage now but very satisfied overall.

      Comments about Philosophy Clear Days Ahead Acne Treatment Cleanser:

      I use this product daily in the shower in conjunction with my Clarisonic. I randomly get milia (white pimple looking things) and was looking for a new facial cleanser to use. After searching online, it was suggested that a cleanser with salicylic acid would be good. I found this and it was highly recommended in the store as well. Makes my skin feel great! And it smells delicious! Expensive but 2 pumps covers my face so it should last a good while. Highly recommended!

      I really like this product, I use it with lunch mia 2, I also use this every day. It cleared up my face so well for the first two weeks! But I'm having a really bad breakout now... Not sure if it's because of other things or what but I'm going to continue using this because I love the way my skin feels after.. It's so clean feeling! I would definitely recommend this product!

      I keep this face wash in the shower for morning use. It wakes me up and is light not leaving that tight residue on my face.

      Comments about Philosophy Clear Days Ahead Acne Treatment Cleanser:

      I am in mid 30's, I get hormonal Tzone monthly breakouts, mainly chin area. When I started this product it was very effective in drying out existing pimples and bringing up my black heads and what I mean by that... The black heads would come out and turn into small white heads that would be very easy to clean off and then they would heal up and go away...but unfortunately this product was too drying for my entire face , even with the use of moisturizer, I even got a mild rash that lasted a few days...so now I use "Purity" on a daily basis and only use "clear days" on my chin area during my breakout week of the month. I find that this combination works best for me to cleanse and fight my pimples.

            Didn't work for me

            Cons

            • Dries Out Skin
            • Ineffective

            Best Uses

              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.

                Could I use this with my clarasonic or would it be too harsh on my skin and make me break out more?

                  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.
