I think we’ve established that I’m a huge fan of Drunk Elephant right? I LOVE almost every product I’ve tried. In fact, the ones I don’t love, I at least like. The Drunk Elephant Sukari Babyfacial mask is no exception. As soon as I saw it launched I knew I had to have it.
The Sukari Babyfacial is a 25% AHA and 2% BHA mask that works as a facial to gently resurface and exfoliate the pore lining. It claims to smooth texture, minimize the look of fine lines and wrinkles, refine pores and boost radiance. Sounds like a miracle in a bottle right?
The instructions say to use once a week on clean dry skin, leave on for 20 minutes and then rinse off. A 1.69 oz bottle costs a whopping $80.
+ I’m going to talk about this until I’m blue in the face, but I love Drunk Elephant’s philosophy. They only use clean, non-toxic ingredients that either directly benefit the skin’s health or support the integrity and effectiveness of their formulations. I.e. no parabens, no sulfates, no phalates and cruelty free.
+ Even though this has 25% glycolic, my skin doesn’t feel irritated or even dry when I wash it off. This isn’t the case with most exfoliating masks.
+ Using this mask has visibly reduced the hyper pigmentation around my cheeks and chin. Although it’s not completely gone, it’s fading much faster than usual after I started using this.
+ It’s great at exfoliating without using a physical exfoliant (like beads). Due to my very acne prone skin, I’ve been getting monthly facials for the last year or so. Using this every week has allowed me to increase the amount of time in between facials. Even though it’s expensive, it’s much cheaper than regular facials.
+ Although I agree with most of the claims, I haven’t seen any difference in fine lines or pores. Perhaps with continued use?
+ This product does tingle when first applied (and my skin is used to glycolic acid). Although I wouldn’t say it stings, it’s definitely a little uncomfortable. I’m guessing if you have very sensitive skin, it would sting.
+ Clearly the price is the worst thing about this product. Like most Drunk Elephant products, this is on the HIGH end of the spectrum.
I mostly love this product! I like the ingredient deck, I like how my skin feels after I use it and I’m really loving it’s effect on my acne marks. It’s definitely the best chemical exfoliating mask I’ve tried. However, if you have very sensitive skin, get a sample at Sephora before committing to $80!
