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 the product not crazy about the smell

Although licorice root may have brightening effects on the skin, I am not crazy about the smell. Everything else about this product was top notch thought. Great consistency when scrubbed on the face with water. I haven't seen much of a difference in my skin tone yet, but I have not been using it for very long. I guess I will have to wait and see.

nice cleanser/mask

I used this cleanser and loved the fact I could also leave it on for a few minutes as a peel type mask. You could feel the acids working on your skin. Has a nice texture and goes far

DDF Rocks!
Purchased

DDF is the only product line I've found that actually works on my combination skin, I nearly cried when Sephora stopped carrying them, but now Birchbox does! This cleanser is really great for controlling oil, acne and fading spots. It is a bit drying, so I wouldn't use it daily, but a great cleanser to have in the rotation.

Evened out my skin!

I love this cleanser. I have some dark spots left over from acne as a teenager. I'm very prone to discoloration. Since I've been using this cleanser they have gotten noticeably lighter, my skin looks more luminous and new dark spots start out lighter so their easier to fade. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is it has really strong ingredients. I can only use it once a day or my dry skin will get very irritated.

Effective

I really like this cleanser. I have acne spots and it seems to help clear away the redness after the breakout goes away. It also keeps my face pretty smooth because of the gentle exfoliating acids in it. I can only use it once a day though because twice is too drying.

Nice smell, didn't notice much effect

This is a nice gentle cleanser, however I didn't notice any improvement in my skin condition. I have blotchy, dullish skin and I did not notice any change. However, my skin did not get any worse either.

Irritates my face

I liked the feeling after washing my face but it will irritate and dry my face after a week of using this product. I had to stop, but I will try again during summer time.

Helped with acne!
Purchased

I have had postpartum acne for 3 months now with no sign of it getting better. I got this sample a few months back and decided to try it. This stuff was amazing, it started clearing up my acne within one day! It works best with my Clarisonic; my skin looked brighter after just one use. It is very drying, but cutting back to once a day helped with that. Downsides: there is a mild stinging sensation when using it and it smells terrible. Well worth putting up with for the results!
