DDF® Acne Control Treatment

Like most women, we mapped out reliable antiacne routines during our awkward junior-high years, but our pimple-fighting regimen fell by the wayside once we started focusing more on antiaging creams. That’s not to say the occasional adult breakout doesn’t still occur, which is why we’re grateful to cutting-edge skincare experts DDF® for creating this potent zit-zapper. Unlike the chalky acne products of our teen years, this complexion savior works while we sleep to heal blemishes. It’s a very adult treatment, even if we’re still kids at heart.

you always hear how salicylate acid is good for breakouts. i like that i can spot treat easily.

Meh
Sampled

I've used the sample daily for a couple weeks. It doesn't seem to be helping my acne that much. I did like that it didn't irritate my skin as much as other harsher products that I have tried. I think it will work for people who have less stubborn acne.

effective

this was very effective at clearing up bumps on my forehead. however, i may try to find a similair product at a cheaper price point before commiting to the full size.

Is it just me...
Sampled

...or does Birchbox know when you need a specific product? Summer = spot breakouts and it's no wonder since I'm smothering my face in sunscreen. I liked the product, but I didn't feel it was as effective as other DDF products I've received in by BBox.

Pimples be Gone
Sampled

I used this sample from my birchbox as a spot treatment on several pimples this month. To be honest, half the time the pimples were gone the next day, half the time they were not. But the consistency is nice and a little goes a long way.

Good Product
Sampled

I liked this product. I liked the texture and I feel like it has helped my skin. I do not feel like it is too irritating, like some acne products can be.

This didn't do it for me. I didn't really notice a change in my pimples (I get some on my neck and forehead every once in a while), but I can see how it might help someone who is more prone to breakouts, since the main ingredient is salicylic acid.

Personally, I prefer benzoyl peroxide for spot treatment, but that's just me.

Still, it has a pleasant scent and it goes on smoothly, so I can't fault it for that.

Smell
Sampled

This product gets a 4 out of 5 stars from me. I really like how light the cream is and how smooth it makes my skin feel. A lot of other acne products can feel like cake being put onto your skin, but this goes on and feels light. The only reason I would not purchase this product is the smell. I know most acne treatments do not have a nice smell...but for the price, I think they could have found a way to decrease the nasty smell of this product.

Not Drying
Sampled

I have very dry skin and acne products usually dry it out even more. This product went on lightly and did not dry out my skin at all. I have used for about two weeks now and it help clear up the spots I already have and has kept my skin clear.
