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.

Love it

I first got this product in my sample box. I loved it, it was on back order so I got another cleaner. Sorry I did. Worth the wait

Love!

This is one of my favorite products I've received from birchbox so far! It leaves my skin soft and not oily, after finishing my sample I bought the full size and use it as my daily face wash. Keeps any potential break outs at bay.

Loved the sample!

Loved the generous sample! Smells great and very light ( I couldn't put my finger on the scent but here I see it is licorice) and was nice on my sensitive skin. I however didn't see a change in my skin.

clean skin!
Purchased

this does a fantastic job of making my skin feel so clean and loved. the best feeling is washing a face full of makeup off with this and having smooth and bright skin underneath. it also smells great!

For combination skin—Dryness

This product felt refreshing at first, but I found out after a few uses that it made me feel very dry. The sample size was generous enough that I used it for a week.

For those with oilier skin, I'd imagine it would be a great fit. But those with dry to combo skin, I'd be wary of dryness.

DDF Brightening Cleanser

This cleanser sample was a very generous portion. I was able to use it for several months before I ran out. Although I did not see it make my complexion brighter, it did help some of my acne scars fade and it always left my face feeling very clean. Never did it leave my face dry or oily. So that was nice.

Effective but I don't love it

This cleanser was very effective in cleaning my skin and stripping it of the toxins that my skin gathers over the day. I also feel like it does peel away some dead skin that gathers as well.

However, I typically feel quite dry after washing my skin. Perhaps its because soap-like cleansers that foam typically strip my face of all the natural oils.

best cleanser I've ever used!

A friend of mine received this in her birchbox and told me about this product. I tried it out and fell in love! I've had acne since middle school and this is the best cleanser I've ever found. Keeps my skin clear and soft. I use it with my Mia cleansing brush and my skin is the best its ever looked. I've recommended this to friends, and EVERYONE that tries it, loves it. My friend not only got me hooked on this cleanser, but I subscribed to birchbox too!

Good cleanser, but not with retinoids.

The first time I used this, I adored it. Strong enough to really clean but didn't strip. Refreshing and left my skin very smooth and ready to absorb my moisturizer. The second time, however, was less pleasant. I had started using a rx strength retinoid about 3 days before and took this cleanser with me on an overnight trip. I think that the ingredients in the cleanser that brighten were just too strong for my newly sensitive skin. Nothing catastrophic happened, my face just stung while I washed it and instead of feeling smooth when I was done it felt irritated. Lesson learned. I'll be trying this again once my skin adjusts to the new routine.

Recent Sun Damage Gone & Sensitive Skin
Purchased

The significant ruddy sun damage on my nose caused by severe sunburn one month ago is nearly GONE after a using this every evening for a week. I have very sensitive fair skin too. I've had no problems with drying irritation or breaking out in a rash. And kudos for the generous sample!
