Babyfacial was created with every skin type in mind. Glycolic acids get a bad rap for being sensitizing, but the pH level and accompanying ingredients (think fragrant oils or high amounts of alcohol) can be the real problem. Babyfacial has the ideal pH level of 3.5 to 3.6 with a blend of acids that work together synergistically to ensure higher efficacy, while helping to avoid redness and irritation.
Drunk Elephant only use clean, non-toxic ingredients that either directly benefit the skin’s health or support the integrity and effectiveness of their formulations. They never take into account an ingredient’s synthetic or natural status, but instead choose based on its safety and bio-compatibility. You won’t find silicones, chemical screens, sensitizing colorants, perfumes, or fragrant essential oils of any kind in their products, making them appropriate for every skin type. This is Drunk Elephant’s commitment to you.

The social media hype machine has been working overtime for the Drunk Elephant TLC Sukari Babyfacial, so I had to get a sample of it to see what it was all about. As a regular acids user, I was skeptical that I’d see a difference in my skin. I was wrong! Drunk Elephant TLC Sukari Babyfacial isn’t too much stronger than my go to PTR UnWrinkle pads, but the blend of acids is different enough to see some change. I love the PTR UnWrinkle pads, but in the winter and early spring, they can be a little drying. Drunk Elephant TLC Sukari Babyfacial exfoliated nicely without drying the skin when used as directed.
The Drunk Elephant TLC Sukari Babyfacial has a nice texture; it’s kind of like a gel cream. You put on a thin layer and wait for 20 minutes before washing off with warm water. It has a mild fruity smell that doesn’t stick around. I did notice some slight tingling and stinging, but nothing crazy and my face didn’t get red. After 18 minutes or so I took it off, I was pressed for time but could have gone the full 20 minutes easily. The stinging was only a few moments into the application and didn’t last. I did notice there was a lot of dead skin, particularly on my left side that needed to be sloughed off by hand when rinsing. After rinsing, my skin looked fresh, bright, smooth, and any spots that had texture from pores or fine lines were smoothed out noticeably. I applied Fresh Seaberry Oil as I do after a major exfoliating session. That made the glow pretty full on, and my skin looked like I had a real nice facial at a spa that knows what they are doing.
It’s been a few days since I tried Drunk Elephant TLC Sukari Babyfacial and I’m happy to report that my skin still looks great. No breakouts, no redness, and no extra dry skin or post peel flaking. Next time I try it, I’ll use a moisturizing sheet mask afterward!
Drunk Elephant TLC Sukari Babyfacial seems to be a pretty great product. I liked how it worked, and I was surprised how smooth my skin was. It was easy to use, and I could see myself using this frequently. I wasn’t keen on the $80 price tag (1.7 oz), but I used about 1/3 of the sample I was given, so I think that it will certainly last a long time. I also like the packaging; it’s an excellent pump. I know there are a few mixed reviews out there on it and I think that if you regularly use high strength acids or you don’t slough off the skin at the end, you might not get results as I did. I think any skin type can use it except the most sensitive but certainly sample it first. If you’re looking for a mid strength exfoliator, Drunk Elephant TLC Sukari Babyfacial should be a contender!
Product Rating: A
Repurchase: Yes, I will but a full size when the sample runs out.
