Product Review: Drunk Elephant’s T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial

I am a self-proclaimed Drunk Elephant product line fan.  I believe in what they stand for (like saving my favorite animal, the elephant) and that their products contain what’s good and leave out what’s not.

The T.L.C Sukari Babyfacial does not disappoint. Since I am a Sephora VIP Rouge customer, I was able to get my trembling hands on this baby before it was available to the masses. The cute, yet not over-the-top packaging in eggshell and light pink flanked by one happy pachyderm was convenient and reflects understated luxury.  True to my trusted favorite brand, it’s rated a certified ReadHead best.  It’s pricey at $80 for 1.69 oz but I’ll make it rain for this product.

What is it?

The Babyfacial is a wonderful mask + peel.  Two pumps of the wheat-colored concoction of goodness covers your face and after 20 minutes provides an effective shellacking of your skin due to the powerful punch of 25% AHA and 2% BHA acids.


Drunk Elephant’s products always contain top of the line ingredients that are designed for effectiveness but cut down on irritants. There’s no fillers here.  Chock full of acids, sodium PCA and hyaluronate for hydration and extracts (which equal antioxidants) and this gem is sure to brighten and tighten dull, dehydrated skin.

Here’s the list from Sephora’s website:

-Blend 25% (Glycolic + T.L.C. (T) Tartaric, (L) Lactic, (C) Citric Acids) and Salicylic Acid (BHA) 2%: Exfoliate surface dead skin cells and support surface turnover to smooth and brighten the appearance of skin; exfoliates pores as well as on the surface of the skin, refining pores and providing greater skin clarity while soothing redness.
-Gram/Chickpea Flour: Absorbs excess oil without over-drying, balances, and brightens skin’s appearance while combating dullness.
-Pumpkin Ferment Extract: Aids in gentle exfoliation with a rich source of fatty acids and antioxidant components, carotene, lutein, and carotenoids, and contains naturally occurring enzymes.
-Matcha (Green Tea Leaf Powder), Milk Thistle, and Apple Extracts: Contain potent antioxidant and anti-pollution properties, helping to condition and soothe.

Water, Glycolic Acid, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Glycerin, Sodium Hydroxide, Salicylic Acid, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Camellia Oleifera Leaf Extract, Lactobacillus/Pumpkin Ferment Extract, Lactobacillus/Punica Granatum Fruit Ferment Extract, Opuntia Ficus-Indica Extract, Pyrus Malus (Apple) Fruit Extract, Silybum Marianum Seed Extract, Saccharomyces Cerevisiae Extract, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Juice Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Powder, Cicer Arietinum Seed Powder, Sclerocarya Birrea Seed Oil, Passiflora Edulis Seed Oil, Leuconostoc/Radish Root Ferment Filtrate, Sodium Hyaluronate Crosspolymer, Sodium PCA, Allantoin, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Dextrin, Polydextrose, Sorbitan Isostearate, Amylopectin, Niacinamide, Phytosphingosine, Lactic Acid, Propanediol, Citric Acid, Titanium Dioxide, Trisodium Ethylenediamine Disuccinate, Polysorbate 60, Caprylyl Glycol, Chlorphenesin, Phenoxyethanol.


Application was easy and fast.  The directions say to leave it on for 20 minutes and rinse off. I did feel some tingling, which means those who have sensitive skin should take it easy and start off with shorter amounts of time. It does have a bit of a smell to me, which probably is the pumpkin ferment and apple.  It isn’t off-putting and smells natural.


Ooh baby this stuff is the ish. My skin glowed and the acids helped tame some of my acne I had popping up.  I had no irritation and my texture smooth.  I didn’t have any peeling or dryness.  Kudos again to the developers at D.E.  I’m totally fan-girling over this one.
