Wake up to clear skin. Clear Days Ahead Overnight Repair Salicylic Treatment Pads help prevent future acne breakouts and promote clearer skin while you sleep. The pre-moistened pads feature salicylic acid that gently removes dead skin cells without scrubbing to keep pores clear and help prevent future acne breakouts. They are formulated to prolong the effectiveness of salicylic acid with less potential for irritation and promote a healthy skin barrier. The pads also feature glycolic and mandelic acids to help improve the appearance of large pores, discoloration and post-acne scarring for a more refined, even complexion.

Key Features:
  • Salicylic acid gently removes dead skin cells without scrubbing
  • Formulated with less potential for irritation
  • Glycolic and mandelic acids help improve the appearance of large pores, discoloration and post-acne scarring
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 (0.50%). Inactive: Water, Alcohol Denat., Laureth-4, Alcohol, Polysorbate 20, Arginine, Mandelic Acid, Glycolic Acid, Myristoyl Tetrapeptide-13, Niacinamide, Tocopherol, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Extract, Cocoyl Arginine Amide, Ethylhexylglycerin, Pentylene Glycol, Tamarindus Indica Seed Extract, Lens Esculenta (Lentil) Seed Extract, Sodium Hydroxide, Decylene Glycol, Limonene, Phenoxyethanol.

    Comments about Philosophy Clear Days Ahead Overnight Repair Salicylic Treatment Pads:

    I can't say enough good things about these. I love the addition to my nightly routine and they cleared my skin so fast. This is my third purchase of them. I'll never go without them again. They also did a really good job of smoothing my skin and clearing up acne without being really drying because my skin is very dry.

      Comments about Philosophy Clear Days Ahead Overnight Repair Salicylic Treatment Pads:

      This product is my saving grace. Inflammatory Acne is an embarrassment at any age, especially at age 61. Using this product daily keeps the inflammation down. It is drying, but my sensitive skin tolerates it well.

        Comments about Philosophy Clear Days Ahead Overnight Repair Salicylic Treatment Pads:

        Ive used these pads for a couple years, I think Im on my third container so far, I do NOT use every day. But at least a couple times a week. Its a great product to help soothe and clear up moderate acne and spots. I use in conjunction with my normal skin care routine, I would recommend to apply to face, let dry for a few minutes then continue with your moisturizer afterwards. It does not burn nor dry out my skin, but leaves it feeling soft and smooth. Pricey but well worth it. I love Philosophy products as I feel they are tended for more sensitive skin without perfumes and scents to irritate the skin.

        CLEARED MY ACNE!!!!

          Comments about Philosophy Clear Days Ahead Overnight Repair Salicylic Treatment Pads:

          This was honestly a saving grace for me. I have been battling acne since I was about 16 and I am now 21. I have tried so many products from super expensive to really cheap just to try anything. This REALLY made a huge difference in my skin, and within I would say about a week, my skin was very noticeably clear. It was even getting rid of my dark spots from my acne. I would highly recommend giving this a try.

              Comments about Philosophy Clear Days Ahead Overnight Repair Salicylic Treatment Pads:

              I like philosophy products. This cleared up some texture on my cheeks without irritation but didn't do a ton for my deeper breakouts on my chin. It helped but didn't totally clear it up. I use it with the purity cleanser and a facial oil. Overall I'm happy with the purchase for the price and you get a lot of wipes for your money, especially if you cut them in half

              I've never been a fan of this brand but this actually worked. I got this in a little trail set and it said clear skin In 3 days (ya right) but you know what it really did give me clear skin In 3 days I was shocked. It just dries your skin out so bad

                Just tried these n my daughters like them. I find that it does leave behind a little film on the skin but think this is suppose to hydrate or keep working after u use the pad.

                I use clear days ahead face wash with a Clarasonic, then use a moisturizing oil instead of the clear days ahead moisturizer. This hydrates my skin deeply so I can use the wipes after and not get dry tight skin. Then I use the spot remover as needed. I love this product.

                      Can I use this product in conjunction with the Miracle Retinoid pads? I use those before bed and would prefer to do the same with these so as to avoid affecting my makeup, but would they react to each other? And if so, could I use one in the morning and one at night?
