Our Chief Merchandising Officer Reveals Why Drunk Elephant TLC Sukari Babyfacial Is Worth The Hype

Our Chief Merchandising Officer Reveals Why Drunk Elephant TLC Sukari Babyfacial Is Worth The Hype
For years, the question was always: why is Drunk Elephant Babyfacial not available in the UK? Any time UK-based beauty editors and buyers crossed the Atlantic they’d ferry back at least one Drunk Elephant TLC Sukari Babyfacial for friends, family and colleagues. Finally in 2021, the brand answered our prays and the much-loved AHA/BHA Exfoliating Treatment was made available in the UK.

To say the launch was a success would be an understatement and even now, after over a year since the UK launch, Babyfacial continues to be a top seller alongside Drunk Elephant Protini Polypeptide Cream. We’ve had some rave reviews from customers about Drunk Elephant Babyfacial. Nina A from London recently gave it five stars, saying: ‘Love this, it’s such a treat on a Sunday evening and I am glowing on the Monday morning, ready for work. My skin feels super soft and healthy!’.

At £67 for 50ml, it is at the higher end in terms of price points with only a couple of other Drunk Elephant skincare products overshadowing its price tag. The glow-getting results keep people coming back – myself included.

Drunk Elephant TLC Sukari Babyfacial Summary

Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial, € 76,00 is a hardworking exfoliating treatment that supercharges your glow and very much lives up to its nickname of ‘facial in a bottle’. The potent blend of 25% AHA and 2% BHA has the power to smooth your skin’s texture, minimise the appearance of pores and fine lines, and boost your radiance. In keeping with the Drunk Elephant ethos, it doesn’t contain any of the suspicious six ingredients, which include essential oils, silicones, chemical sunscreens, fragrances, drying alcohols and SLS (sodium lauryl sulfate).

Why There’s So Much Hype Around Drunk Elephant TLC Sukari Babyfacial

There’s a reason why so many people were asking ‘why is Drunk Elephant Babyfacial not available in the UK?’ before it launched here and it’s because the formula is phenomenal. A thin layer of the pale-yellow cream can turn tired, bumpy looking skin into a smooth, radiant complexion is 10 minutes flat. The pro-level blend of citric, glycolic, tartaric and lactic acids helps to slough away dry, dead surface skin, while salicylic acid loosens blocked pores. Drunk Elephant’s founder Tiffany Masterson is all about balance, so formula also contains cactus extract to calm and soothe AHA-related redness alongside Virgin Marula Oil, which is rich in omegas 6 and 9 and helps to moisturise and nourish skin. It’s worth noting that the brand has recently launched Drunk Elephant Babyfacial Routine, € 147,00 AKA the dream duo of Babyfacial and a 15ml Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil.

How To Use Drunk Elephant Babyfacial For The Best Results

You might have realised by now, I’m a huge fan of Drunk Elephant Babyfacial. I used it while I was pregnant with my daughter in 2020 and it is still a firm fixture in my Sunday evening routine. While it can be used by all skin types and tones, I do have some tried and tested rules I recommend you follow to maximise the results.



1. Ease Your Skin In, Especially If It’s Dry Or Sensitive

Drunk Elephant Babyfacial contains a punchy blend of exfoliating acids, so I always recommend newbies leave the treatment on for five minutes max. I promise you will still get all the glow-boosting benefits, while easing your skin in gently. Don’t be alarmed by the tingly feeling, this is completely normal. As is slightly pink skin immediately after you’ve rinsed it off. The pink tinge should disappear after a few minutes, or once you’ve moisturised. Next time you can leave it on for 10 minutes and slowly work your way up to the recommended 20 minutes.



2. Don’t Mix Your Actives

Mixing Drunk Elephant Babyfacial with your vitamin C or retinol serums could overload your skin with active ingredients and cause irritation. I like to use it on a Sunday evening to set my skin up for the week ahead. Once I’ve cleansed, I’ll apply Babyfacial, leave it on for 10-to-15 minutes, and then follow up with my hyaluronic acid serum and moisturiser. Monday morning is when I’ll use my vitamin C serum.



3. Follow Up With A Hydrating Serum

While Drunk Elephant has included some nourishing ingredients, this is a hardcore exfoliating treatment, so you should definitely follow up with a hyaluronic acid or squalane based formula. Both Drunk Elephant Lala Retro Whipped Cream, € 57,00 and Drunk Elephant F-Balm Electrolyte Waterfacial Hydrating Mask, € 50,00 help to top up hydration levels without clogging your pores.



4. Don’t Forget SPF

Whether you use Drunk Elephant TLC Sukari Babyfacial once a week as part of your morning or evening routine, always wear SPF the next day – and every day after that!

The Takeaway

You probably know what I’m about to say, but my takeaway point is yes, you should absolutely buy Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial, € 76,00. It is a game-changing at-home treatment mask and more than lives up to the hype. My biggest piece of advice though is not to get obsessed with radiant results and be tempted to use Drunk Elephant Babyfacial more than once a week. Overusing acids can end up leaving your skin feeling dry, stripped and bumpy AKA the reverse effect of what you want.
