Drew Barrymore recently kicked off #BeautyJunkieWeek on Instagram, a week dedicated to all of the products she genuinely uses and loves. She kicked things off with her favorite affordable sunscreen, but today, she shared the product that she swears by for baby-smooth skin: Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial.
“I see such instant results from this product,” she said in the Instagram video. “Everybody is talking about Drunk Elephant, Drunk Elephant, Drunk Elephant. The packaging is fun and pretty — but, you know, how does it function? Well, let me tell you.”
“This baby facial mask literally looks like you are a baby by the time it’s done,” she continues. “And what’s interesting is if you see the pigment of the mask, it kind of actually looks a little bit like a tinted moisturizer.”
So, how does it work exactly? The Babyfacial contains a 25% of alpha-hydroxy acids (aka chemical exfoliants), including glycolic, tartaric, citric, and lactic acids. They work by gently sloughing off the dead skin cells to reveal brighter, smoother, more even skin underneath. It also contains chickpea flour, pumpkin ferment extract, and matcha extract to fight dullness and soothe the skin. (Just note that this means it is potent, so you may need to work up a tolerance by using only once a week if you have sensitive skin.)
Bonus: Dermatologists say exfoliation is key to aging more gracefully, as it helps plump the skin and keeps fine lines and wrinkles at bay.
The 44-year-old actress and entrepreneur isn’t the only person raving about this product — Amazon and Sephora reviewers love it, too. (Both retailers are authorized sellers of the product.)
“This is by far the best facial I have ever tried! I have used it once a week for three weeks now and my skin feels as soft as a baby!” one Sephora reviewer wrote. “My pores are less visible now, the hyperpigmentation due to acne has faded and there was a dramatic improvement in texture and tone. And I also got a lot of compliments on my skin now.”
“Perfect. I bought this for acne but now also use it for wrinkles, discoloration, stretch marks, and uneven texture,” another wrote. “It’s a one stop shop for all skin problems.”
So, if you’re looking to give exfoliation a try, Drunk Elephant may be worth the splurge. “I’m going go and use my 20-minute commute to work by wearing this, and when I get there, I’m going to wash it off, and I’m going to look like a baby,” Barrymore said in her video. “So check this out, it works.”
