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.

Noticed Real Difference

I received this as a sample in my box...really wondered how much difference a cleanser could make. WOW. You can feel the change it makes on your face. Am squeezing every drop out of my sample and planning to order. Visible change to skin tone.

great!

I love everything about this cleanser. The sample size was incredibly generous, it lasted me a long time. Like other people have said I didn't truly notice how amazing this product was until I ran out of it. I just ordered the fullsize and am trying to be patient while I wait for it!

Good cleanser, smells gross

I always wash my face twice, but it seemed necessary with this cleanser. My skin really liked it, but it had a very unnatural smell.

Not a fan.

I used an entire bottle of this cleanser, because, honestly, you can't tell if you like a cleanser unless you use it for a while. I gave it a chance and ended up not liking it. My skin isn't sensitive, but this still caused me to break out. And I hated the smell of it.

I use this in the shower to wash my face, somehow my husband has taken a liking to it as well. I feel so clean and fresh afterwards I can apply my moisturizer and be on my way.

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.
