Ideal for adult acne control with anti-aging benefits, this multi-tasking acne treatment serum controls and treats blemishes, decongests pores, helps prevent future breakouts, provides antioxidant protection and minimizes fine lines & wrinkles.

Key Benefits:

  • Fights & controls acne
  • Helps prevent blemishes from occurring
  • Minimizes fine lines & wrinkles


Dr. Sobel's all-in-one, powerful, anti-aging, acne control serum contains 10% Glycolic Acid. When combined with vitamin A (retinyl palmitate), it becomes most effective at exfoliating the surface skin layers, revealing healthy naturally glowing skin with improved texture and less lines & wrinkles. 2% Salicylic acid fights acne and helps eradicate & purify clogged pores from excess debris. Grape seed extract, slippery elm and vitamin E (tocopherol) provide free radical fighting benefits to help minimize fine lines & wrinkles and provide protection from future breakouts. Calming botanicals aloe vera, licorice root & matricaria (from the chamomile family) soothe, calm and comfort irritated skin. A touch of vital skin minerals, zinc, magnesium and copper, nourish and protect damaged skin. pH balanced to help keep skin stabilized. Experience the doctor's dermatologic blemish fighting, acne control, anti-aging formula for clean and clear skin with fewer breakouts and a more youthful appearance.

 

 

Dr. Sobel recommends: Cleansing skin thoroughly before applying medication. Cover the entire affected area with a thin layer one to three times daily. Because excessive drying of the skin may occur, start with one application daily, then gradually increase to two to three times daily if needed, or as directed by a physician. If bothersome dryness or peeling occurs, reduce frequency of application to once a day or every other day.

Precautions: Sunburn alert - this product contains an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that may increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Use a sunscreen, wear protective clothing, and limit sun exposure while using this product and for a week afterwards. Do not use on irritated or broken skin. Do not use in or near the eyes. If eye contact accidentally occurs, rinse eyes thoroughly with water. Using other topical acne medications at the same time or immediately following use of this product may increase dryness or irritation of the skin. If this occurs, only one medication should be used unless directed by a physician. Avoid unnecessary sun exposure and use a sunscreen. Stop use and ask a physician if rash, irritation or sensitivity develops or increases. Keep out of reach of children. In case of accidental ingestion, get medical help or contact a poison control center right away.

            I have been using this product for years, and am so happy that I can still find it now at Ulta. This is an outstanding product for any age. I use it on the nights that I don't use my retinol cream. It is a great exfoliator, it has acne-fighting salicylic acid, and is an excellent way to build collagen. If you could see my skin, you would not believe my age. Seriously, this product is a winner.

              Comments about Ddf Glycolic 10% Exfoliating Oil Control Gel:

              I always keep this in stock, it's the only thing that keeps my acne/uneven skin tone in check. I've tried to recreate the same effects with cheaper products and it hasn't come close. I use it every night after washing my face. It can be drying but if my forehead or cheeks are dry, I just use it on my jawline and neck and the DDF Ultra Light Moisturizing Dew on the dry parts.

                Comments about Ddf Glycolic 10% Exfoliating Oil Control Gel:

                I highly recommend this product for anti-aging and anti-acne. It contains the highest level of glycolic acid allowable over the counter, plus 2% salicylic acid to help acne. If you are allergic to aspirin, don't use it as salicylic acid is derived from aspirin. Product helps build collagen as it diminshes fine lines and exfoliates dead skin cells. I recommend using it twice a week in the evening at first and then every other day if your skin can handle it. After you use it, your night-time serum or moisturizer will penetrate better. Also, make sure to wear a good sunscreen in the daytime as any product of this type can make you photosensitive. Also, don't use any retinol product after this since they cancel each other out. Use the retinol on the alternating night you don't use this. I've been using this for years and swear by it.

                  I bought this because I read a review of someone that used it for ingrown hairs on thier legs.....
                  I have a problem with them as well.....
                  I have to say there's been an improvement.....and makes my skin so soft.
                  I use this on my face and legs and a little goes a long way.
                  I love this product....it's something I've been looking for ...for years!
                  I have oily skin and it keeps the shine off my face a long time...........
                  I LOVE this product!!!

                    This product has helped to clear my skin up with out irritating it like BP can. I also put a moisturizer after I apply this so it does not over dry my skin. I will end up with super oily skin the next morning if I do not do that. It is working great for my adult acne, which does not respond to the products out there for teenagers.
