Comments about Philosophy Clear Days Ahead Acne Treatment & Moisturizer:

They say you are either a benzoyl peroxide person or a salicylic acid person and the way to find out is to see which one bothers you and then go with the other one. In my case I can't use Benzoyl peroxide- bad rashes, sensitivity, just the worst. I've been looking for a salicylic acid BHA product that can help to exfoliate and shrink pimples without drying my face out. It's just horrible when you open a product and you can almost get drunk from the whiff of alcohol. I did some research, and a certain website highly recommended this product along with the spot treatment. The key is that the PH is low enough so the SA can actually exfoliate effectively; something many other brands can't claim (um, Clinique). I've purchased two bottles and I plan to purchase again. This product is easier to find than the spot treatment.

    Comments about Philosophy Clear Days Ahead Acne Treatment & Moisturizer:

    I use this product once a day in the mornings. It has helped my skin clear up and feels great on it. When I put it on my skin feels so soft and the lotion feels like a primer. Was recommended to me by a sales associate at ulta but now it's love!

          I was using the Aveda OuterPeace moisturizer but since it is currently experiencing a sourcing issue I was looking for new moisturizer. Philosophy's Clear Days Ahead has been working great. The moisturizer helps prevent breakouts without drying out my skin, couldn't ask for more!

          Comments about Philosophy Clear Days Ahead Acne Treatment & Moisturizer:

          This moisturizer is a bit expensive but it is my one beauty splurge. I have tried many other products but keep coming back to this. It is very moisturizing but so light and not greasy at all. It keeps breakouts to a minimum. I feel that it also heals and makes pimples less red and inflamed. I highly recommend this moisturizer if you have acne prone skin

          • Makes Skin Silky

          • Ineffective

          • Normal Skin

          Comments about Philosophy Clear Days Ahead Acne Treatment & Moisturizer:

          This product would be really good for anyone who doesn't have sensative skin. I tried it for 2 weeks and it just broke me out worse in areas that are normally never a problem. I guess I just can't use expensive brands on my face, I had the same problem with The Body Shop products.

          Comments about Philosophy Clear Days Ahead Acne Treatment & Moisturizer:

          I use this every morning after I've showered and washed my face, before I put on my makeup. I don't break out all that often, and when I do it's nothing major. This cleared up all the blemishes that I had, and I haven't had any new ones since I've started using it (even through a week of my period!) Like someone else stated, the only cons about this product (and they aren't enough to prevent me from buying this over and over again) are that it smells kind of funky, and the opening in the tube is really big. Lots of lotion comes out at once, and a little really goes a long way with this product. The smell seems to go away after the lotion absorbs, but I'd have to have someone smell my face to tell me if it actually still smells. I can't smell it, and my boyfriend hasn't complained. :)

          Comments about Philosophy Clear Days Ahead Acne Treatment & Moisturizer:

          This product keeps my skin calm. I have adult acne and when I stop using this it flares up. Twice I've had problems with milia and this was the ONLY product that cleared it up! It was literally clearing the next morning along with other emerging blemishes. It is not overly drying or irritating to the skin either. You will see a significant reduction in acne lesions in probably a couple days. This stuff also got me through a rough hormonal acne breakout without making matters worse. Highly recommend. There are two things that I would change about it: the smell. It is not pleasant but it is bearable. And the spout on the bottle is pretty awful. It is too wide for the product and it comes streaming g out if you are not careful. Other than that. I'm happy with it.

              Comments about Philosophy Clear Days Ahead Acne Treatment & Moisturizer:

              I used a prescription rosacea treatment for years but after using this for a year in conjunction with the RX, I was able to cut back the prescription treatment to once a day. This is much more affordable, provides light moisture, and does not irritate or dry out my sensitive skin. However, if you have dry skin you may still need an additional moisturizer. I apply it before a tinted moisturizer in the a.m. and use the RX cream at night.
