DDF® Brightening Cleanser

Even when you don’t have blemishes, there are other complexion nuisances to deal with—namely, sun spots, acne scars, and age spots. Instead of just concealing them, call in this gentle gel cleanser. Developed by a leading dermatologist, the targeted formula uses a team of natural skin brighteners, including licorice root and mulberry bark, to even out your complexion and lighten discolorations. Over time, you’ll have noticeably smoother, brighter skin. Now you just need to hold up your end of the bargain by using it every day.

Life CHANGING!
Purchased

I have struggled with acne since I was 11 and am now almost 35 years old. Recently I flew home to see family and my 3-step clinique acne treatment was confiscated since it was too much liquid. When I got to my sister's house she gave me her DDF cleanser she had gotten as a sample in her Birchbox. At first I was panicking because usually throwing a new treatment in the mix means more breakouts but amazingly my skin was glowing like never before. As soon as I got home I purchased the full sized and am about to buy my second bottle of this miracle soap! I want to yell it from the rooftop: This stuff is AMAZING! I have never had good skin in my entire life and now I can go without makeup or concealer. This stuff doesn't make your skin look dull and gray like benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid either. It looks like healthy teen skin because the AHAs in this buff off all the dead skin and oil and just wow. WOW!!! If you have the never ending struggle with breakouts and you are tired of regimens that do a "good job" and want something that will work then look past the price tag. I would rather pay forty bucks for something that works than $5 over and over again for snake oil! Get it and never look back!

Like it, don't love it
Purchased

I like this as a cleanser, a little goes a long way. But I haven't noticed that it has made my skin any brighter which is why I rated it a 4. Love the natural ingredients and how it makes my skin feel. Not sure if I would buy it again or not. I do use the 5% glycolic wash also by DDF and I do love that product.

This product did not work for me
Purchased

I have very sensitive skin and was hoping that this product would even out my skin tone and make it smoother. Instead it made my skin redder and rougher. I have been using this product as recommended. I don't recommend this product for sensitive skin types.

Unimpressed.
Purchased

I decided to try this based on all the positive reviews, but after using it as my night cleanser for three weeks, it hasn't done anything for my combination, dull skin. The two stars are because it seems to clean well enough and doesn't make me break out; the effect feels a lot like Cetaphil cleanser. For such an expensive product, I expect it to do more.

Good cleanser
Sampled

This was a good cleanser but I think it would be best for normal to combination skin. I found it just a little drying on my already-dry skin.

Pretty good cleanser - very licorice smell
Sampled

This was pretty good as a cleanser - not too drying but still worked, but the licorice smell wasn't always what I wanted.

This is excellent - leaves skin renewed and refreshed and feeling great! Mildly acidic. I am now buying this regularly.

Cleanser that makes a difference
SampledPurchased

I had been trying several new skincare items, and couldn't figure out what it was that was making my skin look so clear and translucent, but after a little trial and error I realized it was this cleanser. The trial size was so large I could really see how it made a difference after regular use. I love it and am on my second full sized bottle! I'm 42 and didn't realize how a good cleanser could affect my skin routine!
