Most Helpful Positive Review Finally, a solution that works
I actually had great skin as a teen and young adult, relatively speaking. The acne issues didn't start until my 30s.
I do not have oily skin - in fact, very much the opposite. What I do have are issues with both cystic acne and milia (small bumps that are almost like a blackhead but you can't just dig them out - you have to get them professionally removed or over time exfoliate the skin off that lays on top of them) that frequently would get infected and turn into terrible deep whiteheads that took forever to heal, almost exclusively on my chin and jaw. I can't even tell you how much money I've spent on spot treatments to try to get rid of the acne once it shows up. I always figured that since my skin was so dry to start that no product would EVER work for me to control the acne before it starts, especially without totally destroying my skin, right?
Wrong. A thin layer of this stuff across my chin and jaw (used more like a serum than an after the fact spot treatment) every morning before moisturizer provides just enough gentle daily exfoliation and pore clearing (without irritation!!!) that my acne has been reduced from a spot or two or more at a time ALL the time to maybe one to two spots per month, and even those are much smaller and don't last nearly as long as what I'm used to. I honestly hesitated writing this review for a long time because I was afraid I was going to jinx myself. I will include this product in my routine for as long as philosophy makes it.
Most Helpful Critical Review No effect at all!
i use this as soon as a pimple starts and it has no effect. i have used it a few different times. for the price of it, I was expecting something great. The cheap Clean & clear spot treatment i used to use is much more effective and i'll be going back to that.

Love it. It's a bit mild but I like it. Very gentle but for more serious acne I'd probably recommend a different product but for those overnight blemishes it's great doesn't dry the skin.

christopherr25 from undisclosed
My favorite fast acting acne spot treatment! I don't have too many issues with acne, but occasionally I get a spot or two that always seem to pop up at the wrong time! So, when I know I need to clean it up, this is the product to use. My personal favorite for overnight help!

This product did not meet my expectations as much as I was hoping! My skin is a mix between dry and oily! I think this product would work much better for those with dry skin! I would not purchase this product again but I would recommend to those with dry skin!

This clears up my face very well but I find it to be very drying. It is also a little more pricey than I would have liked but that's show business baby

gracem268 from undisclosed
This product has decent ingredients. I used it a few times, but did not like it as much as other similar products that I have tried. For the price, I think there is better products available.
I have repurchased 3-4 times!
Bekah D. from Guam, USA
If I apply this *as soon* as I notice a small whitehead forming, it decreases the size by the end of the day and/or overnight. However, it doesn't do much for my hormonal acne that is deeper under the skin. It is clear and has that silky silicone texture.
Sometimes the pump is annoying and will squirt out too much product, especially when it is almost empty. I think a squeeze tube would be better in terms of having more control over how much product is dispensed.

A great way to treat minor acne and blemishes at an affordable price.

I purchased this bc I get break outs from time to time and I knew Philosophy is a Quality product- I agree it is- this product worked good and didn't take long to remove my pop up pimple.

Combats occasional breakouts perfectly
Colorado Skincare Lover from Colorado
I am 58 and occasionally have pesky breakout spots that do not respond to other available solutions on the market. This product works quickly and without drying my skin out. I travel for work and find that this fits perfectly into TSA size guidelines (I never leave home without it because that's when breakouts happen).
As far as spot

As far as spot treatment go this is on point. Anytime I have a problem break out I put a dab on the problem spot then a pimple pad and let the rest happen under the patch and when I remove no more pimple
