Daytime or nighttime effective acne treatment with 1.5% salicylic acid to help keep pores clean & clear, stop breakouts, and control acne. Paraben-free and will not clog pores.

Key Benefits:
  • Fights & controls acne
  • Helps prevent blemishes from occurring
  • Helps keep pores clean & clear
Dr. Sobel's acne control lotion contains 1.5% salicylic acid to clean and clear pores. Witch hazel has antiseptic properties that remove oil without stripping skin from essential nutrients. Aloe vera, marigold and ginger root help calm irritated skin affected by breakouts and vitamin E (tocopheryl acetate) helps provide free radical protection and condition skin. Experience the doctor's dermatologic blemish fighting acne control treatment for clean and clear skin with fewer breakouts.

(1.7 oz.)
Dr. Sobel recommends: Cleansing the skin thoroughly before applying medication. Cover the entire affected area with a thin layer 1 to 3 times daily. Because excessive drying of the skin may occur, start with 1 application daily, then gradually increase to 2 or 3 times daily if needed or as directed by a doctor. If bothersome dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application to once a day or every other day.

        Comments about Ddf Acne Control Treatment:

        I have been DDF for a little over two years. When I saw this, I switched from the on-the-spot treatment (with the tea tree oil in it) to this all-over. Did not work; if anything, it seemed to make me break out worse, which is sad because it has such a smooth consistency and was easy to apply. Will not be using this again and would not recommend to anyone.

            Comments about Ddf Acne Control Treatment:

            Having suffered acne throughout my life, I have searched and tried nearly every product on the market. DDF Acne Control Treatment is the only salicylic acid I will use on my skin. I use it religiously and it has helped tame outbreaks of deep cystic acne. It's a smooth, silky consistency -- a far cry from other grainy, medicinal products.

                I bought this a few years ago, and so far, this is the best acne cream I've ever used. Once your skin is used to this treatment, the results will show. It really prevents future blemishes from appearing. I absolutely recommend this to people suffering from acne.

                  You need to use this product after cleansing 2 x a day but it has tremendous results. My son has Autism and the smell is so mild it doesn't bother him.

                      I absolutely love this product! After years of bad acne and trying every acne product out there, I discovered this treatment about 5 months ago. After about 3 weeks of using it, I saw a major difference in my skin...most of it was cleared up with this product. You have to be a little patient and give it a couple of weeks to see results but the end results are phenomenal! I recently bought my 2nd tube of this treatment...it's a beauty staple for me now and is a part of my skin regimen...cannot live without it!!! The only reason I gave it 4 stars is that it's pricey.

                        Use this nightly in a thin layer over my whole face. When I do get a pimple it seems to keep it from getting huge, instead a head forms quickly and then goes away. Been using for about a year now and have noticed a huge difference in my skin.
