I was so happy when I first purchased DDF (Doctors Dermatologic Formula) Glycolic Exfoliating Wash. This product is described as a 7% glycolic acid wash cleanser that will smooth out your skin and prevent breakouts. Let me preface this little story by telling you that I am an idiot, now that we have that out of the way….. I purchased this acidic cleanser in an attempt to remove any dead skin cells and to banish any blemish that even thought about taking up residence on my face.
So there I stood in front of my bathroom sink, beginning and ending each day by cleansing my skin with my new facial wash. I have to tell you that during my period of using this product, bumps were HISTORY….do you hear me???? Not one blemish could be found on my face. However, when I noticed that my skin began to feel a little tighter than usual, I used the product less frequently but I never completely stopped using it. The tight skin then turned into itching skin, which progressed to dry skin and then PEELING skin. Yes ladies my skin was literally peeling. I didn’t have any bumps because the glycolic acid was literally tearing my skin to pieces. The product that promises glowing skin left me with a dry dull peeling Face. I was mortified and I had to leave my house armed with Vaseline to combat the dryness and flaking that my skin had become accustomed to. Of course I stopped using this product once the itching began but it continued to worsen and it progressed all the way to full blown peeling. It took about a month and a half to get my skin back in shape. I guess I learned that acid should not go on my face!!!! I hated this company and I never wanted to use another product from this dreadful organization….well until recently when I tried their latest moisturizer….lol
Regarding this $32.00 facial cleanser I say "SKIP IT".
Which facial cleansers put your face through the ringer????
