LOVE!!

I am in love with DDF Brightening Cleanser. I wish Birchbox carried all of their brightening products. It really feels like it is working and in just a few days, I have notices my sun damage fade. I highly recommend!

No breakouts!

I have sensitive skin so I get nervous every time I use anything new on my face - I've suffered the breakouts & allergic reactions.

No crazy scents, washes off clean, and lasts a long time, you only need a small drop.

Favorite Birchbox Product To Date

The size of this sample was perfect. When I first started using the cleanser I wasn't impressed, mainly because of the smell (which is licorice). I continued using it and was very impressed with the results! This is probably my favorite sample I've ever received and after finally using up several others I have on-hand, I'm going to purchase the full-size option.

I have combination skin and used this daily for two weeks, then twice per week as an alternative to a scrub (it contains AHA). I use the amount they recommend and cleanse my face, then leave it on for 1 minute and rinse. I then follow with my normal toner and moisturizer. It's helped with some scaring/hyper pigmentation spots I've had for a while. I also have occasional acne, which is pretty much nonexistent when I regularly use this product.

So smooth!

I have such a hard time keeping up with face washes, but I used my whole sample which was quite a lot, and it left my face feeling so smooth. I wasn't crazy on the licorice smell, but I got over it. Discolorations are a big problem of mine and while this product didn't make them magically disappear it did make my skin smoother and brighter.

The most effective and gentle cleanser
Purchased

This product is probably the best sample I have ever received in any box. The size was extremely generous at first glance, but after months of using this product, and milking it to stay in my bathroom as long as possible, I think it's time for a full size purchase. This cleanser is not only gentle and soothing to an irritated face, the licorice gives off a pleasant and relaxing smell. The best part of this product is that it just plain WORKS. It gets rid of everything from scars to present blemishes to sun spots and gives an overall even complexion. I have never been so in love with a face cleanser and I am convinced it would work on all skin tones.

Great Cleanser

I got this as a sample in my box a few months back and I really like it! It just makes my skin feel brighter, more even, and fresher compared to my other (organic) cleanser.

Like it!

I like this cleanser! It does have an interesting smell to it, but it works well. I noticed after using it in the evenings every day for a week that my skin did look brighter and my dark marks from acne did look less noticeable. I just wish that it was a little more potent for those of us with problem skin.

Clear Face

My face has cleared up so much since I started using this. I do not have any age spots or acne scars but I did have a problem with small blemishes on my forehead but they have cleared up since I have used it! My fiance has started to use it since he started noticing a change in my skin. The only downfall to it is that it has dried up my skin a little too much, making me put moisturizer on several times during the day.

Give it a chance

I didn't really think much of this product when I received the sample . . . until I stopped using it! I didn't realize how much it had brightened my complexion until I noticed how dull it was after a week of NOT using it!

I agree that the smell isn't that great, but it's not awful. And I don't use it to smell good. Once I'm done washing my face, you can't even smell it anymore :)
