I am very happy to see DDF in EDS!!!! My skin is very very sensitive and have rosacea. I tried a lot of product but none of them helped. When my family doctor intoduced DDF oil free moisturizing and matte finish ogiti age photo ago protection sun block, it helped a lot. My redness is gone. Now, all of my skin care products are DDF. In the past, I always order DDF in US becasue I have more selection but not a lot companies is willing to delivery to Canada. Now I can save my shipping fee!!!!! I highly recommend DDF. It is very good. I will try the mask of DDF soon but I don't know which one is good for white head. Any suggestion?

Wow this is old and nobody else put in their response. I'm surprised!

This moisturizer has been the only one I can use on my very oily, acne prone skin. Prior to that, I was hesitant to use anything at all because whatever I tried just led to breakouts, clogged pores and whiteheads. For what it's worth, since having a face lift, my skin seemed to 'want' to be moisturized. Maybe from the tightness? So I changed my cleansing regime and have switched from stripping my oily skin with more agressive cleansers to using DDF's Sensitive Skin Cleansing Gel. Maybe I was going about things wrong over the last 20 years by overstripping the natural balance of my skin. Even though my skin is still oily (don't think that will change), it looks fresh, clean, vibrant and I have absolutely NO ACNE or BREAKOUTS whatsoever! I'll look to purchase something a little more moisturizing for my neck from the DDF line, but I swear by their stuff!

I've been using it for a couple of years on my sensitive mature skin. I'm not sure about the other DDF products but this is one perfectly safe for sensitive skin.

I wish I can buy this product, but I don't think they sell it to Canadians. My friend gave me the DDF sunblock and liked it very much. May be eventually we will be able to buy it too.

Thanks for the review Jen! I've tried it years ago and I liked it. I stopped because I was frustrated with all my breakouts and switched to Sonya Dakar, which I found to be a bit better for me at the time.

I use this daily under mineral makeup. It gives me just enough moisture without worsening my already oily complexion. It also seems to smooth out my skin almost like a primer.

I have a sample and love it especially for summers. Its very lightweight, fast-absorbing but moisture enough.

I've tried this a couple times over the years when I've gotten it as a sample or part of a kit. I've never been impressed by it.

I had been loving this product - but not anymore. Felt great going on. The pump amount was generous and one day this week I added it to my throat and decolletage, areas I often neglect. I came home that night with a sunburned decolletage! My exposure is minimal - I have underground parking at home and work, so I only get UV rays through my car window on a 15-20 minute commute. I eventually realized this product has Vitamin A which increases sensitivity and is often only found in night creams as a result. Obviously the SPF in the product wasn't enough to compensate for the increased sensitivity on my skin, so I'm going to discontinue use.

I am not sure if the DDF product mentioned above is the same DDF product I am using. I just started using DDF Ultra-Lite Oil-Free Moisturizing Dew around my mouth and chin area for the flakey and peeling skin in that area from using Retin-A. I think the product in this review has sun protection. The one I use does not. I received a free full size sample from Sephora and really like it. I have oily and acne¨prone skin and this mosturizer works well without causing any breakouts. It goes on light, sort of gel consistency and is dispensed from a canister with a pump top. Good product!

The DDF Ultra Lite Moisturizing Dew comes in a few formulas - no SPF, SPF 15, and it looks like a new one with SPF 45 just came out. I was using the SPF 15 one.

I really liked it as well in terms of consistency and amount of moisture - until I ended up burned. It isn't my intention to dissuade anyone from using a product that they enjoy - I'm just providing info and feedback on my experience. My skin does tend to burn easily and that may have amplified the effect for me. But it was a painful experience and I'll be staying away from anything Vitamin A related during the daytime.

I've used this product (the original with no sunscreen) on and off for years and I just keep going back to it, especially in the summer. I use the OCM but sometimes like a light moisturizer before putting on my makeup and this one is perfect.

I agree that this was fairly harsh on my skin. I tried using that product for a while and didn't see the results I was looking for. I would recommend either sticking with Avon or Mary Kay. They are both gentle and soothing on the skin. Here is the link for you to reference:

Has anyone used DDF Glycolic 10% Exfoliating Oil Control Gel? How does it work?
Any review on Peter Thomas Roth AHA-BHA Acne Clearing Gel is also appreciated.
