    I'm 42 and have suffered moderate acne since my teen years; then moved up to moderate adult cystic acne and melasma. (all sorts of fun!) My skin is combination but can be dry/ flaky around my lips and nose while still breaking out. This product has really tamed my skin down. I started w/ 1x each day and now in 2 weeks, I'm using it 2x each day. It started as slightly drying but I always use moisturizer so not too much of a problem. Now my skin is actually clearer than it's been in years and it looks much more even toned. Seems to be lightening my slight remaining melasma (taken care of earlier w/ Obagi) and my skin is MUCH smoother! The cystic acne has disappeared and the red marks are going too. This is the 1st product I've used with such good results...wish I'd found it earlier!

    My dermatologist recommended that I try a cleanser with glycolic acid to help prevent breakouts and pave the way for clearer skin. I was very disappointed with this product. It is too harsh and very drying. I have normal to oily skin with occasional breakouts, and it has strip my natural oils and left my skin very dry with more breakouts than I've ever had. It has also left my hands chapped and cracked just from using my hands to wash my face. Now I'm left with more than a half of bottle that I'm just going to throw away. (Editor's note: dermatologist's recommendation is based on customer's personal experience and has not been independently verified by drugstore.com.)

      Comments about DDF Glycolic Exfoliating Wash, 8.5 fl oz:

      I have never used a glycolic acid product in the past, but do love this product. I have never had problems with my skin, but was finding that I was breaking out a fair bit this summer. I read some reviews and recs and decided to try a glycolic acid product to help cleanse my skin and prevent breakouts. Within a week I have noticed a dramatic difference in my skin. My skin is much softer and smoother, and it has also helped to clear my existing breakouts, with no new ones (yet!). Definitely something that I'm planning to incorporate into my daily morning routine.

          Comments about DDF Glycolic Exfoliating Wash, 8.5 fl oz:

          I was looking to try a product with glycolic acid to help with acne scarring and for light exfoliation without causing too much redness since I have very sensitive skin. I know DDF is a top-rated skin care brand, so I figured I would give this product a try when I was in the market for a new, better face wash. I can definitely say this product was a waste of my money. It did nothing for my acne-prone skin. I would not say that I had more breakouts using this, but it definitely did not lessen the occurrence of breakouts. It didn't really leave my face with a clean feeling. I ended up using the remainder as a body wash, since it wasn't doing the job for my face and I didn't want to end up with a bigger skin problem then when I started. Total waste of money. For those with acne-prone skin though, I really recommend getting a face wash with tea tree oil in it - this has been a godsend for my skin whereas years of using basic drug store brand products with salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide have made my skin immune to their supposed positive effects on acne.

                I have been using the Grapefruit Glycolic Scrub Wash from Made From Earth for at least 5 years. I have tried other "generic" brands only to be disappointed. Made From Earth's Glycolic Scrub keeps my sensitive skin blemish free and healthy looking. Very, very pleased.

                This is by far the best face wash I've ever used! It is safe to use around your eyes & isn't over drying. Most stores where I live don't carry it so I buy it through their website online.

                  I've been using this for years & as a product junkie i've switched to try all the new, raved about products-but always end up back to this. It has helped reduce the appearance of fine lines as well as shrink my pores. It seems to exfoliate the top layer of skin & allows other treatments to penetrate deeper into skin's layers. I LOVE it! Also it's helped me to not have acne break-outs. It makes my skin feel smooth & soft! People always comment when I go back to this that my skin looks fantastic- Yay!

                        I believe they market this for both the face and the body. It's okay, but for the body it just doesn't foam enough for me. I tried using it with a sponge and ended up using a TON just to get my arms and legs washed. Overall it's okay, and fine for the face, but I'm not overly impressed and won't continue to waste it on my body.

                        I've struggled with breakouts more as an adult than as a teanager. My 30's are more broken out than my 20's were. It began comsuming my chin and jaw line. I've been using this for the past couple of weeks and it is making good strides in clearing it up. I still get an occasional new friend, but its more one or two than waking up to wondering where my 5-7 new bumps came from. I am natually pretty dry complected so this might not be the best product for me since it is a bit drying, but I can't argue with the results I'm gettting. If you're on the fence, I say try it. Let it surprise you like it has me.

                            I use this every morning in the shower on my face & neck. It removes all the flaky skin, expecially in winter. In the summer months I don't use it as often. I have noticed a reduction in a dark spot on my face. Lathers well and gives you a really clean feeling.
