Let’s start this segment with the ever-hyped Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial to see if it is worth the hype!
Key ingredients: 25% AHA/2% BHA
Price: $80 USD approx. $110 SGD
This is a very potent product that contains 25% AHA, probably not available locally or many countries due to its potency.
⚠️ Always do patch test before applying on the entire face. Incorrect usage could seriously burn or damage skin. Not recommended for people who have not tried chemical exfoliators before.
Similar to its sister product the Drunk Elephant Framboos Glycolic Night Serum, its supposed to resurface skin texture, aid in products absorption, exfoliate skin and removes any dullness in skin.
To use, apply on clean skin as a mask for 15-20 minutes, DO NOT leave it on for more than 20 mins. Not supposed to be a daily treatment, once or twice a week will suffice.
For myself, I use this treatment once a week and the following morning I can feel my skin soft and smooth. I usually follow up with a good luxurious sheet mask to ensure all the goodness are absorbed optimally.
Peach & Lily Super Reboot Resurfacing Mask
Key ingredient: 10% AHA/0.5% BHA
Sunday Riley Good Genes (another cult favorite!)
A multi-use product. Can be used as a mask for people who have more sensitive or easing into chemical exfoliators or apply to clean skin as an exfoliating serum. There are two versions available in lactic or glycolic acid.
Key Ingredient: AHA
I will definitely recommend the Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial for people who are familiar with chemical peels and looking for a potent product. It leaves up to its name of ‘at home facial’. I can completely understand the hype behind this product is as it works effectively and a bottle could last quite some time. Use together with the Marula oil, it nourishes the skin and gives off a nice glow without looking or feeling greasy. I prefer this to the Framboos as it is more effective and I feel that it’s priced more reasonably.
Verdict – Definite repurchase, has
