i dont write reveiws im always one to just read them i made an account here to specifically write a review! ive struggled with acne for years now and i couldnt ever find a solution and after going to numerous dermatologists i became familiar with the response of "our hands and tied" thats not something you would want to hear having acne EVER!.... i used to live on the west coast and i moved with my husband to the east coast and my skin threw a complete fit kuz of humidity so i tried this on a whim just because philosophy has a good reputation on all of their products i wasnt expecting great results just because ive been let down for sooo many years with prescriptions,pills,topicals etc etc....anyway i used this and its really gentle especially when i use the pads it doesnt burn my sensitive skin at all...the face wash is great i get a very nice clean i use this with my clairsonic mia and i feel like i got every trace of dirt and oil my pores feel pure my stubborn skin had improved with just one use and by the second day my skin was already clearing up this product is literally a miracle i totally reccomend this product too anyone please philosophy dont ever discontinue this item you'll leave soo many of us depressed
I recently started to break out due to stress and I have a new love for philosophy products so I decided to give this a try. Prior to buying this cleanser I had already purchased the 'clear days ahead' moisturizer, treatment pads and acne spot treatment. I was seeing some results with those products so I got the cleanser thinking that using the entire system would work wonders. Unfortunately, adding the cleanser to my routine made my face dry, red and itchy. I have sensitive skin so I wouldn't recommend the entire line for people like me. I do still use the treatment pads and moisturizer at night, as well as the spot treatment as needed. I'm going to stick to the purity cleanser in the am and the microdelivery exfoliator in the pm. That is what seems to be working best for me! :)

This has been my long-time go to product for daily facial cleansing.

Definitely cant use this everyday. I got the worse sun burn which was my own fault but also my skin barrier was ruined for a good week. I used The Ordinary skin barrier serum and it brought my skin back to life. It felt really refreshing at first but I over did it and now im scared to use it again. My skin can be sensitive too so maybe not a good product for me. The spot treatment version did get rid of my blackheads.

I returned it as i broke out after use. My face is now clearing up since using Fresh sou face cleanser.

I've been using this cleanser for like 7 years now and I pray that they never stop making it. It has really helped my skin acne wise and maintains blemishes. Paired with a good facial lotion and you're in business.

This cleanser works well for my combo skin
Keeps blemishes at bay , but doesn't leave my skin dry or tight! Going through my third bottle!!

I use this daily in the morning, combining it with Purity Made Simple at night. It's a great for my combination skin! I love the citrus scent!

My 14 yr old daughter has tried everything from A to Z! She LOVES her Clear Days Ahead! Her complexion is not only clear but healthy looking! Just natural, clear, clean beauty. I would most definitely recommend to any one!

I bought this cleanser months ago so im surprised its lasted me this long, but honestly I haven't really seen a difference in my skin. Im glad it doesn't dry out my skin but it feels like any other gel cleanser to me.

Great moisturizer for people worried about extra oil causing breakouts

After the first use it started to clear up stubborn acne that I couldn't get rid of. I used a Cerave face wash similar to this and it did nothing. Happy with this purchase!

I've tried many face products but none seems to work for me even though I only used the every other day or even 3 they would make my breakout more and my skin would feel very dry especially around my mouth. This product is the first one that doesn't make me breakout. I do use it every other day I'm not sure if I have sensitive skin or what all I know is I have oily skin that's what people said I have not sure that matters but it does dry my skin around my mouth if I use it everyday when I don't forget. If I would use it everyday I think it would clear my acne completely even though I use it every other day or 3 when I forget I really do see a difference.

I have oily skin and use this daily along with the Microdelivery. I get so many comments on my skin. Some of it may be genetics, but Philosophy products definitely help!

This made my face more clear. Inusually have black spots in my face and it faded but slowly. I love this one. It does not make my face dry, my pores became smaller as well.

I love Philosophy products for my skin so please do not take this as me bashing the company. But I do want to pass along that my daughter used this product and had a severe reaction. It's been weeks and we are still trying to clear up her skin. Use with caution.

Bought it for my daughter. She loves the product. She will buy it again.

Great for my hormonal breakouts, congestion from working out, days when I've eaten bad and my skin shows it, etc. doesn't dry me out, feels nice and smells light and fresh. I always keep in my shower for when my skin is telling me to use this!
Bree from North Carolina
I loveee trying face cleansers and this is by far my favorite acne fighting face wash. the pump bottle is super nice and the smell is really subtle but smells very fresh and clean. it cleanses good but not too much, and has definitely fought against random breakouts I tend to get. new holy grail.

Love this product by Philosophy. I get pimples every now and then and use this to help clear up my skin. It's a perfect face cleanser and acne eraser! Also helps with my dry skin on my face, moisturizes at the same time! Highly recommend!!
Dedicated customer from New Mexico
Love this acne wash. This face wash keeps my face clear of any acne that could
Come up. I have used this for years and it is non drying to your delicate face.
I love the orange scent this has and how soft but strong it works on the skin. My face cleared up completely in 3 days. Best product for washing facial skin that has acne or pimples.
I will be a life customer of this product!

This is the only acne cleanser that's consistently worked for me. I use once a day with moisturizer and I've been using it on and off for 6 years. I tried the Neutrogena orange cleanser for a while but it didn't do it for me. Will continue to restock a couple times a year.

Felt nice on the skin and made me feel clean, but I broke out after a few days of using it. Not sure if it's because of this or because of something else (could've been anything). I'll probably try it again!
