    I have tried just about everything to deal with my acne for a very long time. I have been using this system for a week now and am seeing amazing results. I will continue to use it and purchase the companates when I run out of trial although they are on the pricy side.

      Comments about Philosophy Clear Days Ahead 30 Day Acne Trial Kit:

      I was very skeptical about using it, because I have used proactive and was scared it would be the same. Surprisingly it wasn't definitely not as harsh and doesn't irritate my super sensitive skin. It hard for me to take the time In the morning to wash and apply lots of stuff, so I switched up the application times a little bit, it works for me. In little as two days I saw a difference, hope it keeps up the good job it's doing.

        Purchased for my 11 year-old- seems to be working well on her problem area (forehead). Has been 3 weeks and the acne appears more under control. Hopeing its totally cleared by the 30-day mark. We did run out of the cleanser before the 30 days and we think its working so I did buy the full size cleanser. Easy for her to use.

            I have tried numerous products and most either only work temporarily or completely dry out my skin. This kit has worked wonders. The moisturizer isn't too oily and keeps my skin from flaking. The cleanser is gentle but still gives me a deep clean feeling and the spot treatment is great for whenever I get a small breakout. After 3 weeks of use I am extremely pleased with the results!

            Comments about Philosophy Clear Days Ahead 30 Day Acne Trial Kit:

            After reading mostly great reviews on this product, I gave it a try.
            I have mild acne and this did noting for me. After a month of use, I actually had more breakouts. There were No clear days ahead.
            I suggest you keep it moving and try another line of products! I'm currently liking Mario Badescu.

              I've struggled with adult acne for awhile and finally had enough. I tried this product and the next day my skin felt smoother. The products are very light and leave your skin feeling refreshed. I have been using for a month now and still have acne, but greatly improved! The worst time is right before my period and this month I only had 1-2 zits come up where I would normally have a huge battle on my face. Great product that I would recommend to anyone. Have tried numerous products in the past including proactive without improvement. This was it for me!

              Comments about Philosophy Clear Days Ahead 30 Day Acne Trial Kit:

              I gave this a 2 1/2 month try. This just isn't the solution for me. I had mild/ occasionally moderate acne before trying this product. My old cleanser was discontinued, so I had to try something else. Using this product let my acne get completely out of control. I would now describe my acne as severe. My skin that wasn't actively breaking out felt softer, but it just wasn't treating my primary concern at all. I finally gave up on this kit, and I'm glad I did. After just two days with another product my face is coming back under control. I know it's all part of the trial and error process that we go through to find the right fit, but it makes me appreciate the days when my face wasn't painful and embarrassing.

                Comments about Philosophy Clear Days Ahead 30 Day Acne Trial Kit:

                Prior to the age of 28 I had never had acne. I was the girl in school who never had to wear make-up! When I stopped my birth control in hopes of starting a family - I got the acne that most teenagers dread! It is horriable cystic acne in the jawl area (under the jaw bone - on both sides). I have tried everything from drugstore, organic, spas & department store. I heard every horror story of derms and antibiotics so that was a no go. Nothing seemed to work - only further irritatation, burning and drying out my skin. Even the department store salesperson told me that hormonal acne is difficult to treat.
                Tired of using the "bad smelling" acne line of every brade - I was going to give up and just use nice facewash like Philosophy Purity when I came across this. Well heck, for price at least I get the pretty bottles!
                It has been 2 weeks now - and I am wondering why this stuff is not advertised more! It has been prefect. I followed the directions on the box, not the bottles. Wash in AM and use lotion then wash in PM and use pads. No drying & no redness. Just clearer skin. I have gotten 2 new spots since I started but they cleared within a day. If this continues I will be able to wear BB cream to the beach! Even if it stopped working now - I would be impressed!
                I can not say enough about this product - for the money (you will or have spent more) it as at least worth a try for your acne!

                    A:

                    clear days ahead is an advanced acne system, and may cause dryness in sensitive skin. if you tend to have sensitive skin it may be best to incorporate just one product from the clear days ahead collection along with your regular skin care regimen.
