What is it: A deep-cleansing, oil-free salicylic acid acne treatment cleanser.

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

Why is it different: Clear skin begins with a clean start--clear days ahead oil-free salicylic acid acne treatment cleanser deeply cleanses and helps reduce acne-causing bacteria, while salicylic acid effectively reduces breakouts. It effectively clears skin without irritation, leaving skin feeling completely clean and comfortably balanced. A refreshing orange scent delivers a pleasant cleansing experience.

How do I use it: Apply 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.

From philosophy.

philosophy clear days ahead deep cleansing gel,8 oz is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 40.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Facial Cleanser!!! I started out using the original Purity facial cleanser but switched to using CDH cleanser. I use this exclusively every day to cleanse my face morning and evening in connection with the CDH night time pads, daytime moisturizer and spot treatment. Simply extraordinary products and can't live without at this point. Thank you Philosophy for creating all your amazing products!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product, not great packaging I really love this cleanser. It is the best, most effective thing I have used on the hormonal acne that I just started getting at age 36. I use it twice a day with a clarisonic deep pore brush head. The whole line of products is great. My one wish is that this cleanser came in a different container. The pump clogs up frequently and then when I go to use it the cleanser sprays out in all directions and is wasted. I may try decanting it into a squeeze bottle but I wish I had the option to just buy it in one to begin with.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for those with acne I bought this for my niece (early 20s) since she has really bad acne. While it didn't make everything disappear, it did help a lot. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I have had horrible breakouts the past two years. Ive been going to the dermatologist and they cleared up a good portion of it but I still had breakouts and spots that just would not go away. My cousin talked me into trying this and not even a week after using it my face is completely clear! ((I stopped using my creams that were prescribed to me, only use this wash)) I've forgotten what clear, smooth skin feels like, thanks philosophy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but drying I used this as directed, its a nice product, but super drying. Left me with a super tight feeling face. I stopped using it. Maybe a better product for someone who has a lot of acne skin issues, mine were in just spots. I ended up giving it my teenaged nephew and he likes it. No fragrance so that was a plus.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not for me I decided to try this since I have acne prone, oily skin. I used to use the older version of this product, the super wash for oily skin, a noxcema like cream that worked wonders. Then I switched to Purity, and I wish I had stuck with it. This cleanser doesn't remove all of the oil and dead skin and leave my skin fresh and smooth the way Purity does, and it's more drying than Purity. So less clean, more dry, no thanks. My face also increased in break outs and black heads during the three weeks I gave this a try. I'm back to my Purity, and my skin is happy again. But I'm sad I have a barely touched bottle of On A Clear Day that's going to waste.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent but not for oily skin I've used Philosophy for 20 years. It began with Amazing Grace. I love Philosphy products and when I lived in AZ, I visited their store numerous times. Sadly, when it comes to skincare, I have not found a product I can say was a game-changer. My skin is oily and I still have breakouts and I am 40. Nothing has helped my breakouts or kept oiliness at bay. I've used all of the Clear Days Ahead products and I think they are so-so. The cleanser is refreshing but I can't say it did much for me. I read the reviews and wish I had the same experience. It looks like I am a minority, which is good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Miracle Product This product works super well! It got rid of about 80% of the pimples on my forehead and nose blemishes within 2-3 days, and also diminished the appearance of my acne macules.
