What is it: An oil-free, hydrating treatment designed to help skin look clear while improving skin tone and texture--leaving skin with a beautiful matte finish.

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

Why is it different: Designed to target acne-causing bacteria, clear days ahead oil-free salicylic acid acne treatment and moisturizer helps skin look clear while delivering oil-free hydration without clogging pores.

How do I use it: Cleanse your skin thoroughly before applying. Cover the entire affected area with a thin layer 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The most AMAZING acne treatment!! I have struggled for many years with oily, acne prone skin, and have tried just about everything on the market. The clear days ahead acne treatment is the most effective moisturizer I have ever used. It leaves my skin soft and smooth and exfoliates my skin gently, with little to no redness and irritation, unlike other treatments. I feel confident again, and my skin has never looked better. Thank you philosophy! Please don't ever discontinue this amazing product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Why change a good thing? When this went from being a gel formula to a moisturizing formula (as in too heavy for my sensitive skin), I had to trash my tube. The original formula I used 2 or 3 days a month and, bingo, my skin was like nothing ever happened. This is, while not as thick as Miracle or Hope products, too much for me. Sad, but I lost a good product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Old product maybe, smells rancid. I have been a philosophy gal for 15+ years. I have always had fab results! I have minor adult breakouts, but when I do, I use my Clear Day wash and it calms back down. I so wanted this to work. It may have worked if I was able to continually use it. It smelled like old garbage. I thought it would dissipate, but the smell lingered. I threw it away after a few days. I don't know if I got an old product, or what, but it was repulsive.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from lightweight, acne fighting moisturizer this moisturizer is very lightweight, which is a benefit for my oily skin (dry skin will find this not moisturizing enough). in combination with a separate benzoyl peroxide (bp) treatment, this product works fantastically. it works well on its own to purge the impurities from skin, but bp keeps bacteria from growing and causing new acne. the only reason i can't give this product 5 stars is because the packaging is horrendous! as many people before me have mentioned, the hole of the cap is simply too large. it's really hard to squeeze out the right amount, and when the bottle is almost empty, product ends up going everywhere and a lot dries out on the lid. please, philosophy, fix this!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helps Clear Skin WITHOUT Drying It! I was really hesitant to use this under my foundation! I thought it was going to be a disaster! But it turned out to be very gentle and moisturizing, but at the same time, helped to clear my skin. It's not an overnight miracle. Stick with it and you will see results. I wish I had this as a teen!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from LOVED this moisturizer. I normally have problems with moisturizers sitting on the top of my face or feeling heavy on my skin / like they are clogging my skin.. I've also noticed a lot of moisturizers make my skin look overly shiny. (Even after double cleansing, right after I apply a moisturizer, my skin will feel clogged!# This moisturizer absorbed immediately into my skin, and a few minutes after application I noticed my face felt SO SOFT! I agree with another reviewer, Purity has not helped with my acne and does not cleanse my face well enough. As for helping with acne - - I noticed little change. I look more to my cleansers for that. But I will keep buying this moisturizer because of how easily it absorbed into my skin and the feeling afterwards, I really loved it. One more thing: I wish Philosophy made better openings for their bottles/merchandise. The cap did not work properly, product would come out all over the bottle once opened #it's a fairly runny consistency) and a lot of product was wasted drying in the cap. Even so, I would buy this again. But if they could make a new type of opening / bottle that would be wonderful.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does nothing I use purity a lot but it never does anything for my acne and thus I started looking at the treatment line, I got the whole set of the clear days ahead hoping it would clear my skin, it worked a little. Took months for it to work and it was too many steps and my skin felt nasty at the end, too many products on the skin is too much for my skin no matter how much they said it would help. I then found hope in a bottle and it was great, one step thats it and my skin felt great afterwards. It was like this product yes, but it was better because it was stronger, while this bottle only has 1%, hope in a bottle has 2% and it does make a difference. It has become a hassle to try and find hope in a bottle because philosophy discontinued it, they need to have more then one type of acne treatment. Not everyone's skin works the same and doesn't react to the same methods. If you do read these reviews, philosophy, look at amazon's reviews for hope in a bottle. They all want it back, I want it back it has been the only treatment that has worked for me out of clear days ahead and many more!
