I finally caved and bought the Drunk Elephant T.L.C Sukari Babyfacial. After reading tons of online reviews and a few of you recommending this product, I decided I needed to try it out for myself.
I tried the Babyfacial three times before writing this post because I wanted to fairly assess whether or not I thought this product was worth the hype and the money! I don’t mind spending money on something if it is worth it, so I figured this review would be helpful for anyone who is thinking of buying this product or just wants to learn more about it. Let’s get into my thoughts on this product:
Right off the bat, I LOVE that this product comes with a pump, a huge bonus. The pump makes it easier to get the product out without having to stick your whole hand into a jar of face mask and getting it all over you. Just me? Probably. The pink and white packaging of the product itself is cute, as all of Drunk Elephants products have pretty packaging. The mask is a cream/beige color and goes on pretty much clear/has a little bit of a neutral tone.
After I cleansed and toned my skin, I applied the mask. Each time I used this product I used around 2.5 pumps, this was enough to cover my entire face! To my surprise this product tingled a bit when I first applied it, not a bad tingle more like a ‘this product is working’ kind of tingle. The instructions suggest leaving the mask on for 20 minutes, which is what I have been doing (maybe more like 25 – 30 minutes because I’m too lazy to get up when my timer goes off, woops!) The instructions also suggest using this mask once a week. Additionally, I have not used any other masks the past 2-3 weeks because I wanted to see the results of this one!
I have included the below information from the Sephora website regarding the purpose of this mask and the ingredients,
What it is: A pro-quality “facial” that resurfaces skin to reveal greater clarity, improved skin texture and tone, and a more youthful-looking appearance.
– 25% AHA Blend (Glycolic + (T) Tartaric, (L) Lactic, (C) Citric Acids): Exfoliates surface dead skin cells and revs up surface turnover to smooth and brighten the appearance of skin.
– Gram/Chick Pea Flour: Balances and brightens skin’s appearance while combating dullness.
– Pumpkin Ferment Extract*: A rich source of fatty acids and antioxidant components, carotene, lutein, and carotenoids; contains naturally occurring enzymes that aid in gentle exfoliation.
Babyfacial has very small flecks of something in it, I am assuming something from the Pumpkin Ferement Extract* because it feels slightly exfoliating upon application. This product is advertised as an at home facial, and I can attest to this. After using this product I did not notice an immediate difference. Sure, my skin looked great, but it was in the next few days that I noticed my skin was brighter and smoother. It even helped to clear up a pimple I had!
Using the Babyfacial mask once a week has been a game changer for me. My skin is soft, bright and hydrated for the week ahead. Something I love about this mask is that it lasts throughout the week. This isn’t a mask that you use once and have nice skin for a few hours or even a day, the effects of this mask carry on throughout the week.
The application of this mask is smooth and mess free, again the pump is amazing. Babyfacial goes on almost clear and does not harden on the skin. It dries a bit but mainly stays true to its consistency out of the bottle. It feels very luxurious upon application and when washing it off with warm water.
Skin looks brighter, smoother, and feels refreshed.

I think that this product is worth the money! If you love face masks and have been wanting to try this one out, do it! I was nervous (mainly because of the price point) that I would hate it or it wouldn’t live up to the hype, but I have been loving it. I would suggest this to anyone who wants a mask that is going to give their skin a fresh start.
