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.

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!

It's good... But ..
Purchased

I have mixed feelings about this product. Does my skin feel fresh after using it? For the most part. However, I guess I don't feel like I am getting a good cleanse because the consistency of it is so watery. There is no lather produced from the product, and I don't feel that it is doing much. Plus, I really don't like the scent of it. Been using it for a few weeks now, and will keep trying. It does seem brighter, but it doesn't do anything for the texture of my skin. Maybe if it was a richer consistency which produced a lather I would like it more...
