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.

so far, so good.
Purchased

It's only been 3 days, but so far, I love this lotion. It is, without question, the least drying acne lotion I've ever tried, it feels great on the skin.

depends on acne type
SampledPurchased

This is great for minimizing pores and combating oil during the day or night. I'd give it 5 stars if it was a bit less expensive and worked better to reduce inflammation of cystic acne. If I put it other types of acne it works great especially when it comes to drying out pimples, reducing redness, and minimizing pores. Doesn't leave any sticky residue on your face so its great under makeup. The tube has lasted me a very long time and I love the pore reduction and exfoliating effects.

Great on skin

I use face wash from the doctor but this was nice to have when i went away for the night. It is smooth and not chalky.

Acne Gone!
Purchased

Around my time of the month, my acne becomes insane and out of control! I get acne as bad as others get cramps! Using this every night before bed lightened the load A TON! It gets rid of most of my acne without drying out my skin. Of course, no product is perfect so I still have a few blemishes but the amount is definitely reduced!

Not a Fan

When this product showed up in my birchbox, I was excited. Who doesn't want a spot treatment for those little buggers? I have not seen much improvement since using it, great try birchbox but sadly I will still keep on my search for an effective spot treatment!

Good for minimizing breakouts

It really does work! I don't use it daily, only when I see a few pimples, and even with that it usually helps minimize them when I apply this overnight after I wash my face.

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!
