Drunk Elephant, as a brand, is slowly becoming more prominent in my skincare life and the big step started with their product, Babyfacial.
If you haven’t ever seen or heard of their Babyfacial, 1) what planet do you live on? and 2) your skin probably needs this product right now because you need exfoliation in your life.
To break it down for you, the Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial (just Babyfacial for short) is a beautiful, intense, skin correcting, AHA/BHA face mask that improves skin texture, skin tone, adds youthful radiance and improves skin clarity. It is referred to as a facial because of its high levels of AHAs and BHAs. It is 25% AHA and 2% BHA to deliver a facial like result at home.
T.L.C. stands for the blend of AHAs in the product. Glycolic, tartaric, lactic and citric and salicylic acids make up the blend. (Check out this post and this post for more about these acids.) But basically AHAs and BHAs resurface the skin by exfoliating. AHAs and BHAs un-glue the dead skin cells that dull skin, clog pores, remove them to reveal glowy skin.
What I found that I loved about this product was how my skin felt after I used it and how the texture improved with each week of use.
I could only best describe the feeling this mask leaves is glass. Your skin just feels like glass, especially when I wash my face the following morning. I use this mask religiously every week on Sunday to clear my skin from the gross and grime that happens during the week from makeup, environmental factors, oil, and dead skin (even though I make sure to chemically exfoliate regularly).
I also love the addition of the mini virgin marula oil because that is all I put on after I use Babyfacial per the instructions and because it just feels amazing after the mask. I would definitely pick up a full size of this one when I run out of my other oils! DE’s virgin marula oil is different from others because of how it is pressed (cold pressed using unheated water extraction aka a DE special way of cold pressing).
I will say the price tag isn’t necessarily a positive (besides it being totally worth it) at $80. So if you’re wanting to try this product out but not want to commit so quickly, I would check out this set that comes with minis. However this product is completely worth it! My skincare routine is becoming (slowly) very heavy on Drunk Elephant products because they all work together so well and their high quality is seen when it comes to the skin.
