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.

Made me break out MORE
Sampled

My skin is very sensitive, and I was very wary of trying this product when I received it in my birchbox. I wish I hadn't tried it because after a couple of days of using it, I developed several pimples. I thought maybe it was just "detoxing" my face, but even a week and a half later new pimples are coming through. I'll be throwing the rest out and removing skincare products from my profile on BB.

Eh

The consistency is thin and it has a slight medicinal scent. It didn't absorb very quickly on my skin at all. I had a pimple developing and this didn't keep it from coming to a head or reduce the head size. Just didn't work for me.

Not for me

I prefer more natural ways to spot treat pimples. I am very dry and SA dries me out even more.

Smells Strong, Acts Weak
Sampled

You'd think it would work GREAT with as strong of a medicine-scent as it has, but my Evologie works much better.

This product didn't work for me

Usually anything with Salicylic acid in it will help clear up my face pretty quickly, but I actually broke out worse after I tried this! Different strokes for different folks, though. Just because it didn't work for me doesn't mean it won't work for you!

if you have sensitive skin- don't use!
Sampled

this product is NOT for those with sensitive skin. I have sensitive skin that usually requires high-end, finely made products to avoid irritation. this made my skin red and irritated and left me with dry patches where I used it. if you have sensitive skin, skip this one.

Used it once a day for several weeks. Did nothing for my acne.

Works Wonders!

Personally I do not have acne-prone skin, but this stuff works wonders! Those random flares are easily taken care of now!

Ouch!

So I put this on at night after already putting on my usual benzoyl peroxide gel and after about a minute, my skin started burning and stinging like CRAZY! It was so painful that I had to run to the bathroom and rinse it off with cold water and it continued to burn for a couple of minute afterwards. It's possible that it just reacted badly with my other acne treatment but I'm afraid to try it again to find out. Also, this product contains witch hazel which is extremely irritating and harmful to any skin type. I would definitely not buy this product. Disappointing since I like the texture.

Too drying, not effective
Sampled

This dried my skin out but left pimples intact. I basically never use anything with salicylic acid, and now, I will continue not to. I'm not really acne-prone, but with bar exam studying, have been pretty stressed and have had a couple of breakouts here and there. This product, however, did not help.
