Drunk Elephant T.L.C Sukari Babyfacial

I had wanted to try Drunk Elephant for such a long time, when I went to America I decided to purchase the T.L.C Sukari Baby Facial. I'd done some research to find out more which left me intrigued about the product, it's also not currently available in the UK so I thought it would be a good one to try as I wouldn't have another opportunity to purchase it again for quite a while. 

To summarise the claims that Drunk Elephant make: Babyfacial is an AHA/BHA facial which resurfaces to reveal an improved skin texture and a more youthful radiance. It gently exfoliates the pore lining and gets rid of dead skin cells. It contains 25% AHA and glycol, tartaric, lactic, citric and salicylic acids. It is formulated with chickpea flour, pumpkin ferment and a soothing blend of matchatea, milk thistle and apple.

I'm going to start with the packaging, I love how they've designed all the Drunk Elephant products. The packaging is really simple but each product can be differentiated by the bright coloured lid and they look really aesthetically pleasing in my bathroom. Babyfacial comes with a pretty pink lid with a pump for distributing the product, it's easy to pump out product and unlike some skincare product I've tried, it doesn't dispense way too much product. I use this around once a week, I apply a thin layer all over my face and leave on for 20/30 minutes. I have really sensitive skin and when I was researching this product I was worried that my skin would react and I would end up with a really red face (Samantha after her chemical peel in Sex and The City?) as some people had said it was too strong for their skin. It can tingle on your face and I think it varies between for different people, for me I experience hardly any tingling at all. If I have a sensitive patch of skin, it might tingle but generally I can have it on with no feeling whatsoever. I would definitely recommend you do not use this if you have any cuts or sore spots on your face, I had a cut on my finger and while applying it to my face I experienced such bad stinging! 

Once I've had the product on for 20/30 minutes, I just wash it off. The main difference I've noticed is how soft my skin is after using this product, it feels absolutely amazing. After a few uses, I did feel it helped with the blackheads around my nose and reducing them slightly. It definitely doesn't get rid of them but they look a lot less noticeable. The morning after, my skin looks more radiant and I find it a lot easier to apply my foundation as my skin is baby soft. This product retails for $80 which is a lot of money to spend on a skincare product in my opinion, I do really enjoy this product but I'm not 100% sure if I would repurchase due to the price. I have heard that The Ordinary do a very similar product called the 'AHA/BHA Peeling Solution' so I would be tempted to give that a try before repurchasing this. If you have the money to splurge on this then I would recommend giving it a try, it does make my skin feel the softest it has ever been however if you're trying to save, I've heard really great things about The Ordinary's equivalent and for the price, it's worth testing out.
