For extra pore-cleaning power, follow up with DDF® Glycolic Toning Complex.


Birchbox Breakdown

Some exfoliating scrubs can feel like we’re taking a cheese grater to our skin. But clearing away dead skin cells and lifting out pore-clogging grime doesn’t have to feel like a punishment. Get your skin truly clean (minus the irritation) with this pH-balanced exfoliating wash from DDF®. Glycolic acid cleans deep into pores without the need for rough scrubbing beads.

How it Works

Known as one of the safest and most effective alpha hydroxy acids, glycolic acid gently sloughs off dead skin cells to brighten even the dullest complexions while minimizing the appearance of fine lines and pores. This powerful exfoliator also has a super tiny molecular structure—meaning it can easily get deep down under the skin’s surface and into pores, giving a whole new meaning to the term “deep clean.”

How to Use

At least once a day, massage a quarter-sized amount of cleanser into damp skin and rinse.

Lately, my normal face wash has not been cutting it. My pores were super clogged and I had huge black heads all over my nose. I used this with my Clarisonic and it caused all the black heads to either come to the top or get washed away! AMAZING! I had forgotten how amazing glycolic acid face wash can be! I am very excited to try other products from DDF.

Love this product!

This glycolic wash exfoliates and cleanses in one. It makes my skins texture much smoother, pores appear smaller, and after only a week, any bumps and blemishes have cleared up. It specifically helps with the little white bumps (millia) that sometimes appear around my eyes. The smell is clean and refreshing too. I've tried to use other less expensive products in place of this wash, but I always go back because it really provides results. Its worth every penny!

So smooth!

I had previously seen this product recommended in a magazine article about anti-aging products and made note of the name. I tried the sample and loved the way it made my skin feel. My face is so smooth all day long and it definitely feels more vibrant and clean! It exfoliates without using any abrasive particles- it just feels like normal soap. My skin did get a few dry patches at first, but they've gone away. I bought the full sized version and continue to be very happy with it!

The best wash for combo skin with large pores

I have used this wash for years now and have never found anything that cleans my pores like this does. I use it once daily with my Clarisonic (but it can be used without as well) and I have zero skin issues, even with an oily T zone. Both young and aging skin benefit from the glycolic acid that helps improve firmness as well. Try this if no other cleanser/wash!
