philosophy clear days ahead 30-day acne trial kit

What is it: A 30-day acne trial kit that contains trial sizes of oil-free salicylic acid acne treatment cleanser, oil-free salicylic acid acne treatment & moisturizer, overnight repair salicylic acid acne treatment pads, and salicylic acid acne spot treatment.

Who is it for: Formulated for blemished, acne-prone skin.

Why is it different: Blemished days are over. Experience clear days ahead. philosophy's clear days ahead is an advanced acne system created to help reduce acne-causing bacteria and help clear blemishes. It also helps prevent future breakouts while improving the overall look and feel of the skin for an undeniably clear, balanced complexion.

The collection also offers an effective, two-step morning and evening approach to combating acne. The oil-free formulas are gentle yet incredibly effective to help promote completely clear skin.

How do I use it: Apply clear days ahead oil-free salicylic acid acne treatment cleanser to slightly damp face, and massage for 30 to 60 seconds. Rinse thoroughly. Use morning and evening. If bothersome dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application to once a day or every other day.

Cleanse skin thoroughly before applying clear days ahead oil-free salicylic acid acne treatment & moisturizer, clear days ahead overnight salicylic acid acne treatment pads, and clear days ahead salicylic acid acne spot treatment. Cover the entire affected area with a thin layer of each product one to three times daily. Because excessive drying of the skin may occur, start with one application daily, then gradually increase to two to three 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.

From philosophy.

philosophy clear days ahead 30-day acne trial kit 2.7 5 7 7
Truly Clear Days Ahead My 17 year old daughter received this as a gift she has cystic acne and tried many products without results. That being said she got this for Christmas and has been using it morning and evening since.The difference in her skin is remarkable. Her skin is staring to clear and she is able to get some of the deep blackheads that have formed. She is so excited and I am excited for her. She has had some peeling and is also using micro delivery exfoliating scrub. I told her to expect some peeling which I feel is helping to remove old skin. We will be reordering these products again and the trial kit is a great way to try before buying full size products. 01-09-15
Simply the Best I bought this for my 15 year old daughter after she tried many, many, products on the market. It is amazing, she looks amazing and the best part is... it doesn't dry her skin and make her peel like so many acne products on the market do. It's gentle AND effective. She has joined me as a Philosophy girl for life :) Thank you! 03-14-14
What A JOKE Thought this kit would work for my acne skin, but I was so wrong. This made me have more breakouts than normal, it also dried out my skin. This didn't solve my problem, but made it even worse. 11-07-13
Does Absolutely Nothing :( My 17 year old daughter has a, at most times, mild case of acne. She has used Pro Active for years. Not sure why but just wasn't working for her anymore. I am a Philosophy fan and we are very disappointed with this. She has been using this exactly as the instructions say, for a little more than a week. She may as well be using nothing. It has not gotten worse but there hasn't been ANY signs of clearing up at all. We will give a few other products a try but at least with the Proactive she would clear up a little. BTW, sadly to say I do not submit many product reviews and when I do it is usually because they are favorable and like to share with others. Normally if a product doesn't work I figure its a personal issue and may work for someone else. With the difficult financial times today, I would appreciate knowing if I should not waste my my money. In this case SAVE your money. Sorry Philosophy :( 08-22-13
Great product! I started using this product about six months ago. It has made a huge difference in my skin! I had clogged pores and acne all over my face that was very embarrassing. I will say that it took about a month for this product to work for me. At first, my acne got worse and my skin was very dry. I decided to stick with this product and I am so glad that I did. My skin looks 100% better and my acne scars are starting to fade. I use the wash with my clarisonic and it works great. The reason I gave it 4 stars is because it is very pricey. 07-26-13
not for me a kit this size is a really nice way to try a product like this. unfortunately, this kit made me break out much worse than i had to begin with (or ever before). the products smell lovely and feel nice when you use them. they are not drying like some products. i think the pads in the kit made the skin on the parts of my face that wasn't breaking out look better-- softer and brighter. the problem is that i was breaking out all over my cheeks and forehead. so basically, my nose looked great. i've heard that some products purge your skin before it clears up and that may be the case but i wasn't willing to wait any longer for it to clear (i used it for 4 weeks)-- my acne had become painful. i think i must be a person who responds better to benzoyl peroxide than the salicylic acid that is used in this. it's too bad, i really wanted to like them. 07-21-13
Worst acne care line I tried this line after they discontinued on a clear day. And this is the worst acne care line I have tried. I have aging skin with adult acne, this acne line clogged my pores made my skin peel even with extra moisturizer, enlarged pores and black head and white heads all from this one line. I switched to Peter Thomas Roth's acne line and now my aging adult acne prone skin is beautiful. Philosophy has had at least three acne lines and this one is the worst of them all. 07-07-13
