DDF®

Birchbox Breakdown

Like most women, we mapped out reliable antiacne routines during our awkward junior-high years, but our pimple-fighting regimen fell by the wayside once we started focusing more on antiaging creams. That’s not to say the occasional adult breakout doesn’t still occur, which is why we’re grateful to cutting-edge skincare experts DDF® for creating this potent zit-zapper. Unlike the chalky acne products of our teen years, this complexion savior works while we sleep to heal blemishes. It’s a very adult treatment, even if we’re still kids at heart.

How it Works

Formulated with three powerhouse acne-fighters, this high-tech nightly treatment quickly brings clarity to your complexion. First, salicylic gently purges pores of dirt and oil. Second, DDF™’s Clarifying Neutralizing Complex strengthens and protects skin from inflammation and free radical damage. Rounding out the winning formula, supermoisturizing glycerin soothes away irritation and quells dryness.

How to Use

After washing your face at night, apply a thin layer onto clean skin, targeting any blemishes and areas prone to breakouts. If your skin gets too dry, apply the treatment every other day.

Much improvement with consistent use
Purchased

I've been using this product for month's now after sampling through my Birchbox. It quickly helps dry out my breakouts and keeps my pretty bothersome acne in check. I like that I can use it several times a day, though I have to be careful with it in the winter because my skin can get quite dry on it's own without help from DDF!

Just one night makes a big difference

This product gets a thumbs up. I do still get the occasional pimple and this product takes a lot of the redness out in just one night. I have yet to find the perfect product that zaps acne completely in just one night but this product is the best I have found. Within a couple of days my face is usually back to normal.

Salicyclic acne treatment that actually works!
Purchased

I've had a terrible time with over the counter acne creams containing Salicyclic acid because my skin is very sensitive and just didn't seem to agree with it. However, I decided to try the sample since it claims to calm the skin down. Wow, this completely works without irritation. I have had bad acne for years and can't afford my Rx creams right now and this has been a nice alternative. I use a thin layer all over my face and find my redness disappears. I also wear under makeup and have had no problems with the wear. Great product! I will keep repurchasing!

Works well for my skin!

I have oily skin on my face and this dries out whatever pops up on my face. I don't use it a lot, but it works like a gem whenever I do. It usually doesn't take more than 3-4 applications before my skin has gone back to its normal, clear appearance!

I liked this!

This product was completely new to me. I love the brand and the message behind it. I have never used a product like this before and I think I will start after i finish my sample.

Works!

I love this stuff! Anytime I see any acne popping up I dab some of this on and in the morning, it's gone!

For grownup skin

I was still using the same spot treatment I've used since like high school (okay maybe college). I tried this, and wow! It cleared up my skin but didn't make it irritated or dry like other products do. This is my new go-to!

Love this!

I actually use this daily on my chin area. It has kept so much acne away. I stopped using it nightly for a few days and noticed my chin was more oily. I now continue to use it every fday. It has really worked wonders for me.

Great product

Love this stuff! Doesn't cause the skin around my zit to flake and become irritated. I put it on overnight and when I wake up my zits have either come to a head, or are healing. I'm pleased with any product that gives me overnight results and this is one! i also use it during the day under my make up on problem areas.

Great spot treatment

I really love this for acne that just pops up and you need a quick spot treatment. It is not too thick so you don't have to walk around with white spots on your face and it doesn't bleach out your pillow case like other acne treatments do. My only complaint is that it will dry out the skin it is applied so large areas are not a good idea but spots are great.
