    Rated 5 out of 5 by Finally, a solution that works I actually had great skin as a teen and young adult, relatively speaking. The acne issues didn't start until my 30s. I do not have oily skin - in fact, very much the opposite. What I do have are issues with both cystic acne and milia (small bumps that are almost like a blackhead but you can't just dig them out - you have to get them professionally removed or over time exfoliate the skin off that lays on top of them) that frequently would get infected and turn into terrible deep whiteheads that took forever to heal, almost exclusively on my chin and jaw. I can't even tell you how much money I've spent on spot treatments to try to get rid of the acne once it shows up. I always figured that since my skin was so dry to start that no product would EVER work for me to control the acne before it starts, especially without totally destroying my skin, right? Wrong. A thin layer of this stuff across my chin and jaw (used more like a serum than an after the fact spot treatment) every morning before moisturizer provides just enough gentle daily exfoliation and pore clearing (without irritation!!!) that my acne has been reduced from a spot or two or more at a time ALL the time to maybe one to two spots per month, and even those are much smaller and don't last nearly as long as what I'm used to. I honestly hesitated writing this review for a long time because I was afraid I was going to jinx myself. I will include this product in my routine for as long as philosophy makes it. June 10, 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Best way to fight Cystic Acne I am in my forties and have been suffering from cystic acne for over 30 years. My skin is very sensitive and very oily. Most OTC treatments wreck my skin. Philosophy's fast-acting salicylic acne spot treatment is amazing. I can dab a little on the spot where a blemish is first starting to form. By the end of the day it has reduced in size or is completely gone. And I can feel it working. I love the Clear Days Ahead line. It works and does not turn my face beet red from irritation.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by works OK, not a miracle I thought I would try this system since I recently started breaking out quite badly due to stress. Overall, I'm not a fan of salicylic acid products and never think they work very well, but I thought I would try this out of despiration. The best thing about this is that it does not dry the skin out completely to the point where everything is a flaking mess. On the other hand, the results are minimal to average. It definitely is not going to work any miracles. If you only have occasional or mild acne, I would give it a shot. For me, retinol products seem to work better for my acne along with a little benzoyl peroxide. I don't plan to repurchase when this is used up. January 27, 2014
    Rated 2 out of 5 by is this the same as "on a clear day' Is this the SAME stuff as the old in the tube? I have an old tube left and nowhere does it mention sayclic acid. I think I've used that chemical before and it made my blemish worse!! IF IT AINT BROKE DONT'T FIX IT, PHILOSOPHY!!!! UGH Ticks me off! January 17, 2014
