Philosophy’s On a Clear Day Acne Spot Treatment Review

31orbhu6mel_sl500_aa280_Lately, I have been feeling like I am turning into a teenager again with the periodic breakouts coming here and there (Forehead and chin area particularly). Are you post 30 years of age? and seeing the same things too.

I have a very good skincare regimen, however it does not included something to help with breakouts that I get during  that time of the month.

Over a month ago, I decided to purchase philosophy – on a clear day – oil-free acne spot treatment, $18. Why did I decide to buy this product out of everything that is out there on the market today? Well, what intrigued me is what they say how this product works.

Product Features:

* you have bothersome blemishes in need of immediate attention
* you want rapid results
* you are looking for a spot treatment for monthly or stress related breakouts

Product Description:

philosophy: a blemish is “small stuff.” instead of focusing on what is wrong, focus on what is right and watch your days become clearer.

when bothersome blemishes need immediate attention, look to on a clear day oil-free acne spot treatment. this lightweight combination therapy treatment aggressively targets acne to rapidly clear skin and prevent future breakout. on a clear day oil-free acne spot treatment also helps absorb excess oil and control shine, while promoting skin clarity.

sulfur (3.0%): natural ingredient and proven acne fighter; has oil absorbing and antiseptic properties.oligopeptide-10: combination of amino acids; a revolutionary antimicrobial ingredient that reduces acne-causing bacteria.canadian willowherb (epilobium angustifolium): botanical extract that is an anti-irritant and antimicrobial; helps soothe, calm and condition the skin.polysilicone-11: oil-absorber that helps reduce surface oil.

active ingredient: sulfur 3.0%. inactive ingredients: water (aqua), dimethicone, glycereth-18, butylene glycol, cetearyl alcohol, sclerotium gum, oligopeptide-10, epilobium angustifolium flower/leaf/stem extract, polysilicone-11, polyacrylamide, c13-14 isoparaffin, laureth-7, steareth-2, salicylic acid, ethoxydiglycol, cyclopentasiloxane, glyceryl stearate, stearyl alcohol, disodium edta, sodium benzoate, potassium sorbate, chlorphenesin.

apply a thin layer over entire affected area after cleansing. ideally used after on a clear day oil-free foaming acne cleanser and treating with on a clear day oil-free all over acne treatment. can be used daily in the a.m. and p.m.

My thoughts of this amazing product are how effective it was to my skin. I remember the first time that I used this product I had an inflammed blemish on my forehead and over the weekend the blemish was reduced in half. By midweek the blemish was gone. I like the fact that you do not need a lot of this product to get it to work along with an effective skincare regime too. I give this on 5 stars and would recommend it to everyone!!
