Clear Days Ahead Acne Treatment & Moisturizer

Item #: 2246262 Size: 2.0 oz

End the acne cycle. Clear Days Ahead Oil-Free Salicylic Acid Acne Treatment & Moisturizer helps clear skin, while delivering breathable, oil-free hydration for completely clear, perfectly balanced skin. The antimicrobial formula immediately begins to eliminate acne-causing bacteria, while salicylic acid and oligopeptide-10 help keep skin clear of new acne blemishes with less potential for irritation. It delivers breathable, oil-free hydration without clogging pores, helps improve skin tone and texture, and provides oil control for a beautiful matte finish.

Key Features:
  • Antimicrobial formula immediately begins to eliminate acne-causing bacteria
  • Salicylic acid and Oligopeptide-10 help keep skin clear
  • Provides oil control for a beautiful matte finish
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.
Active: Salicylic Acid (1.0%). Inactive: Water, Dimethicone, Polysilicone-11, Butylene Glycol, Acacia Decurrens/Jojoba/Sunflower Seed Wax/Polyglyceryl-3 Esters, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Sodium Acrylates Copolymer, Squalane, Lecithin, Oligopeptide-10, Tocopheryl Acetate, Trimethylpentanediol/Adipic Acid Copolymer, Octyldodecyl Neopentanoate, Ceteareth-20, Cetearyl Alcohol, Polysorbate 60, PPG-12/Smdi Copolymer, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Ethoxydiglycol, Sodium Hydroxide, Disodium Edta, O-Cymen-5-Ol.

Comments about Philosophy Clear Days Ahead Acne Treatment & Moisturizer:

I have been using ProActiv forever, but now I am 23 and still battling acne daily. I didn't feel like it was fully effective for me anymore so I have been trying to find a new product. The Clear Days Ahead products were recommended to me because I have acne prone AND oily skin. It took some time and experimenting with the best combination of the products for me, but my face has finally cleared up for the first time in years! I use the Clear Days Ahead cleanser and this Clear Days Ahead moisturizer in the morning, and then Philosophy's Purity cleanser with this moisturizer at night to give my skin a break from all the acne medicine. I have to use a moisturizing toner because this product does not moisturize enough for my oily skin, but the combination with the toner is perfect! My skin is less oily and my face is clear! Definitely would recommend this product to others who struggle with acne!

      Comments about Philosophy Clear Days Ahead Acne Treatment & Moisturizer:

      This works great to keep acne at bay and since I have oily skin, I don't like to use moisturizers so this is moisturizing and medicating at the same time. Its the most expensive thing in my arsenal of products, but worth it. My teenagers use it and they love it too.

      I have super sensitive skin so I only use it at night and use a hydrating moisturizer in the morning for balance but it really works for my adult hormonal breakouts

        Finally Something That Works!

        By MissMel

        from MD

        Pros

        • Hydrates Skin
        • Works Effectively

        Cons

          Best Uses

          • Adult Acne
          • Moderate Acne

          Comments about Philosophy Clear Days Ahead Acne Treatment & Moisturizer:

          I'm in my mid-30's and have very oily skin and moderate acne, something I didn't struggle with in my teens. I've tried MANY acne products (infomercials, drugstore brands, prestige brands, and prescriptions). This is the first product I've fallen in love with. I know I'll never be 100% acne free but for this to help more than other things have, and not dry out my skin like so many others do, I'll take it. I use it with Olay Foaming Facial Cleanser for sensitive skin and La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo benzoyl peroxide acne treatment and my skin feels great.

          • Moderate Acne

          Comments about Philosophy Clear Days Ahead Acne Treatment & Moisturizer:

          I use this product to moisturize after cleansing. I have sensitive combination skin (some acne) that easily is dried out by a lot of acne products, but this one works great! It hydrates just enough so that your skin doesn't feel lathered up and is light enough for acne prone skin. It provides a good balance between treating acne without over-drying. I have used this product for two days and already see and feel a difference. I gave it 4 stars just because the product is really expensive for the amount that you are given.

          Comments about Philosophy Clear Days Ahead Acne Treatment & Moisturizer:

          This product exceeded my expectations. In less than a week, it cleared up my acne and made my pores smaller. I get breakouts on my chin, forehead, and nose. This completely took care of two big pimples that I had and no new ones have formed, in less than a week. Only downside is the medicine smell, but I love that it has no fragrance or perfumes.
