Ask a Question

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.

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 started getting adult acne in my mid twenties (roughly 10 years ago). I had tried everything under the sun- from over the counter to prescription... nothing ever worked and needless to say, I basically gave up ever finding a solution. Then one day I received a sample of this in my beauty box and I was actually a little irritated because I had specifically stated that I did NOT want any acne products because trying new things always made me break out. I came online to ULTA and read the reviews and decided to give it a try. I washed my face and put a thin layer on before bed... woke up and pimples were minimized. But I didn't hold my breath because history repeats itself and I KNEW a plethora of pimples were just waiting to make their appearance within a few days. A week went by and no new zits! WHAT!?!?!?!?! I've been using this 1-2 times a day for almost a month and still no new zits and its worked tremendously well on clearing out my old zits and repairing my skin! No more feeling self conscious! And no more wearing tons of makeup to hide my flaws. I feel great. Yes the price is expensive but IMO, you get what you pay for. AND it will last a long time! I am beyond thankful for this product.

          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.

                        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.
