Honest reviews


Philosophys apparent replacement for On a Clear Day.

My daughter has used Philosophy’s On a Clear Day products for several years. Recently philosophy discontinued that line and this “Clear Days Ahead” is the apparent replacement. Since my daughter has sensitive skin I sent this trial kit for her to try before purchasing full size products. Thus far she has experienced no trouble with these products and they appear to be comparable to On A Clear Day. This kit is enough for approximately one month. Will update at end of that time.

Some results

I did see some results after using this product. Had I stuck with it longer and ordered another kit, I probably would have had more things to say.

Perfect size for trial kit or travel.

This Philosophy Clear Days Ahead Trial Kit is good to try out the product without spending too much.I like the Overnight Repair Salicylic Acid Acne Treatment Pads, its thin and soft, it’s not abrasive. My skin feels softer in the morning and the redness disappeared.The Oil-Free Salicylic Acid Acne Treatment & Moisturizer was ok, it was too light so I’m having to reapply.The Oil-Free Salicylic Acid Acne Treatment Cleanser I use in the morning and at night.The Fast-Acting Salicylic Acid Acne Spot Treatment was good to have but I didn’t have much use for it.Overall the whole kit was useful and convenient for travel use. I will probably order the cleanser in full size.

Hair Harsh for Sensitive Skin, but I’m Still Using it!!

So I have REALLY sensitive skin, but I have been breaking out only on my chin for a couple of years now. Every other part of my face is just fine acne wise. But I’m getting married soon so I decided it was time to figure this out.I ordered the trial kit and while I don’t use the entire kit every day (I find it dries my skin out TOO much to use the cleanser, moisturizer, spot treatment, and overnight treatment EVERY day… ), I use at least some part of it once or twice every day. My favorite pieces are the moisturizer and spot treatment. I am considering going back to my old cleanser (which doesn’t over-dry my skin) but still using the moisturizer and spot treatment, and the cleanser and overnight pads a couple times a week as part of a weekly deep exfoliation.Anyways, that’s my report 🙂

I have had moderate to terrible acne since I was 11 years old, I am now in my late 20’s. I went through my teen years on Acutane, and after I got married I went off of that last year, and now my face has been awful again with the cystic demons that pop up all over my face. I have tried every major maker of acne product, except for Philosophy, and when I was showering with some margarita body wash, it gave me an epiphany to see if they made an acne, and I found this. I used as directed in the morning and at night, I coupled the cleaning with a Clarisonic with the deep pore brush, but within a week, no new break outs (the first time in over a year), my pores had decreased in size and were barely there, my redness had decreased and was no very easy to manage with makeup and after 2 weeks of use was gone! This is the best results I have had from an acne product, it is pricey for the full size kit but it has worked for me, I just hope my skin doesn’t get used to it, but I am so pleased with the results, I have had in the 30 days 1 small white head on my chin but if thats it I am thrilled, to have clear skin and to be free of the Acutane curse!
