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.

Good product

I am on my third bottle of this cleanser and I must say, I do think it makes a difference. I am in my 50's and I have a few dark spots on my cheeks from the sun. In conjunction with my dermatologist's cream, I use the Brightening Cleanser and I've had comments about how my skin glows. I recommend.

LOVE

I loved this cleanser. It really made a difference. AHA and BHA? fab. fab. fab. The bottle lasted a lot longer than I expected.

Great

I usually use pretty basic face wash, but this was a fun surprise. I didn't notice many brightening effects, but I did feel like my face was a lot more clean than usual. I keep it in my travel bag and would recommend it.

Best find ever
Purchased

In 2 years of getting birchbox, this is my favorite find. It does a great job of cleaning and exfoliating. It has a light acid tingle and does make my skin look great. It can be a little drying, but I follow up with a good lotion.

A little goes a long way with this and I kept overusing it. But when I got the small dab just right, this lasted longer.

Great product.

Rinses clean, a little goes a long way and it did actually 'brighten' my face. I love it. Only downfall is that, to me, it definitely smells like licorice, but I use it anyway b/c it's that good.

Love the smell, hate the effect!

Licorice! This smells so good, although I imagine it's a scent you either love or hate. My sample was pretty big so I used this for awhile with good results...but eventually my skin got dry and tough in a way that's never happened before! This went in the trash and my skin went back to normal.

Tried it. Loved it. Bought it.
Purchased

I received a deluxe sample of this and used it on a daily basis. After a couple of weeks I noticed a huge difference in my skin. When my sample ran out I went back to my normal cleanser. It did not take very long for me to see that the DDF was making a big difference.

The box says that you may not be able to use this daily. I have chocolate colored skin that can get a little oily. Using this once a day helps to keep the oil under control without leaving my skin dry or tight.

LOVE THIS PODUCT!

I asked one of the associates one day on the phone for some help picking a nice product for washing my face and neck that leaves my skin squeaky clean. I told he that my favorite Aunt had taught me to do that at age five and to finish with a splash of cold water to close my pores. I have always washed my face until it actually was squeaky clean and at age 60 still have my Aunt's milky complexion. The sales associate suggested DDF Brightening Cleanser because she has had such success with it and it made a nice lather to clean your face. I applaud her choice and know this is one for many future purchases.

Squeaky Clean
Purchased

This feel so nice! My skin feels really clean but not dried out. I have only used it a few times, hopefully it helps with my acne a little!

Acne scars

I received this product in my Bonus samples, and I was really excited to try this face wash. I have acne scars, so I can't wait to see if this cleaner will help diminish the appearance of some of my acne scars.
