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.

Terrible

I received this in my box one month and decided to add it to my travel kit since I was already using a salicylic acid treatment in my daily routine. I went on vacation a few weeks later and my face exploded with acne after using this product for the week. I stopped using a day or two before returning home after an emergency purchase of a different acne product to help clear up the breakout and my skin started to clear up. I've used many different kinds of acne products over the years and have never had issues like I had using this. Very disappointing.

I wanted to love it!

I've heard great things about DDF's acne line, but unfortunately it just did not work well for my skin. Luckily, when I received this, my skin was worse than normal so it was a perfect time to try something new for my acne because I desperately needed it! Unfortunately, I kinda felt like this made it worse. I'd put this on at night and in the morning my skin would be full of cystic nasty acne. I'm not saying DDF necessarily caused it, but it didn't really help combat it. My skin tends to do better with natural/organic skincare anyways, but I know this line does work for many people -- just not for me.

Did nothing

This didn't do anything for my spots. I had been looking for a new spot-treatment for a while and was glad that this came in my box. Unfortunately it was very runny, and didn't do anything.

Did nothing

I used this product twice a day and found that it really did nothing for any spots that I had. It did dry my skin out some in the area, as it says it might do. Not for me!

not for me
Sampled

I don't really get acne; I get a pimple or two around my time of the month, but not badly enough to bother using any kind of acne cream or treatment. I applied this cream to a pimple I got a couple weeks ago, and I didn't really see any difference - it just went away in the regular amount of time. I may not be the best person to offer an accurate review since I can't use this product how it's supposed to be used, but it wasn't for me.

Made me break out
Sampled

I'm not sure if it's this product or the weather, but I've noticed that my skin broke out every time I used this. I normally don't use any product either. Also, the consistency of this product was too much of a liquid--so I wasn't sure if I was supposed to put on my whole face or just one spot? Also, the full price of this product is ridiculous!

Too drying
Sampled

I have sensitive skin and I do get occasional acne. I used this a couple of times around my mouth and chin area. It was very drying. The last time I used it, a whole are of my skin peeled off. This was way too strong for my skin.

Weird effect on skin
Sampled

this product had a very stange effect on my skin - i usually don't have allergic reactions to skin products, but might have had with this one. it turned the area around where i put it on a rosy red color and it stays for a couple of days. i thought i would be brave and try it a second time with the same reaction. not for me, but it seems like it could be a good product as the texture and scent and everything else was ok with it...

Didn't Work For Me
Sampled

I have acne prone skin, and in fairness to this product, NOTHING has ever worked for me. I guess I will keep searching....
