Try the Brightening Cleanser, a 1.8% salicyclic acid wash that blocks oil and seals in moisture.

DDF®

Birchbox Breakdown

This genre-bending serum uses a patented dual-phase technology to give skin double the benefits. Like a topnotch primer, it instantly hydrates skin, shrinks pores, and masks flaws. At the same time, the peptide-packed formula exfoliates and repairs skin cells for lasting anti-aging benefits. Plus, the double helix style tube is pretty nifty.

How to Use

This super serum attacks your skin’s appearance with a two-pronged strategy. First, light-refracting microparticles in the colored swirl immediately fill pores and wrinkles for a smoother overall look. Second, vitamins B3, B5, E, glycerin and advanced amino peptides in the translucent gel hydrate and regenerate the skin’s surface — all within the first week of use.

Love it!
SampledPurchased

This is the most amazing serum! I received a sample in my subscription box and couldn't wait to buy a full sized one. One little pump covers my face (I use a second one for my neck and chest) and is the perfect primar for the day. I use it after I cleanse in the morning to smooth my skin which can look bumpy from large pores. It seems to sooth wrinkles as well. My face feels like silk all day. This is definitely a beauty serum which I never want to be without!

high roller

I love this DDF and was able to get it for free the first time thru a vendor. It's super silky and leaves just the right about of moisture on your face while still allowing makeup to adhere normally and not seem oily or under-done. A little dab goes a longggg way which is ideal considering the pretty wack, steap price of this. But then again it's the brand name and reliabilty that makes it pricey bc it does actually do its job. If you cam splurge on a moisturizer, I would go for this one- not only does it quench the face, it shrinks pores too while being smooth and non-greasy.

amazing
SampledPurchased

this is the most amazing moisturizer ever. it is totally worth the price. I have tried other things (usually when i am out and don't want to spend the money) but none of it compares. i always ended up buying it again, now when i am getting low i will order a new one before i am out.

alright

this product is like all wrinkle creams and pore minimizer. I try to convince myself that I saw a change but I really didn't. This also made me break out which I didn't know I did anymore. It is also overpriced.

Great, but pricey

I loved this moisturizer when I had the sample, but the full size is more than I'd prefer to spend.

Where has this been my whole life??
SampledPurchased

I am addicted to this product now. I received it as a sample, and I have since went through two buying cycles of the product. It is very expensive, and i keep an eye out for when i can take advantage of a sale to get the product. It is worth every penny though.

Love this serum

I really enjoyed getting this in my box. It is awesome at smoothing any fine lines and filling in pores to make them feel smaller and non-existant. The sample lasted quite a long time too. My only issue is that the full size is a bit more expensive than I'd typically pay for a beauty product. Definitely worth trying though.

My favorite product so far
Sampled

I got this over a year ago as a sample and my husband purchased it for me for xmas the following December. I have oily/combination skin and it tends to show pores. This stuff is the single best moisturizer Ive ever used. Goes on nice and smooth and absorbs well. All DDF products Ive used have been wonderful. I wish the line wasn't so damned expensive!

Took me a while
Sampled

It took me a while to build up enough know-how and confidence to try this product but when I did, I noticed a difference right off the bat on the 1st time I tired it. The sample size was very generous and I would actually purchase this one and keep as a staple in my daily makeup routine.
