Tested for you: „T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial“ from Drunk Elephant
First a few words about the optic. I like the look of the American beauty label, and the humorous name makes the products want to see. The name “Drunk Elephant” was the idea of the founder Tiffany Masterson. How did she come up with it? She got the inspiration from the fruits of the African marula tree, or rather from the elephants, who like to eat them. If they eat the overripe, fermented mirabelle-like fruits from the ground, the elephant soon stumbles tipsy through the savannah. And one of the main ingredients of the “Drunk Elephant” line is marula oil….
What Tiffany Masterson does without in her skincare are the so-called “Suspicious Six”, substances that are known to irritate the skin such as essential oils, chemical UV filters, fragrances, alcohol, silicones and sulfates. She herself wants her care to be described as “clean-clinical”, she doesn’t want the label to be called classic organic skincare. Her credo is: to combine the best and most effective from both worlds – natural cosmetics and conventional, synthetic cosmetics. What makes me particularly curious is the “T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial ”because it consists of a high fruit acid formulation. Namely 25 percent Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) from glycolic acid, tartaric acid, lactic acid and citric acid to remove the dead skin cells and to boost cell activity. Added to this are two percent beta-hydroxy acid (salicylic acid), which removes impurities from the pores. And finally, chickpea flour is supposed to balance the skin.
The chickpea flour gives the mask its sand-colored tint. I like that, because green or white on the face always looks like Halloween. The texture from the airless dispenser can be easily spread over the skin. I avoid the eye area better because of the high acid content. These are then also noticeable on the skin. It tingles in the first few minutes, even a little more on the nostrils. But it will stop soon. After 20 minutes I remove the mask with lukewarm water. I expect redness at least on the cheeks. But surprisingly, these fail to appear. The skin actually feels and looks baby-soft. Then I apply the marula oil. It nourishes the skin and provides it with a high level of antioxidants. I am skeptical because oil tends to cause pimples in me. But actually, Marula moves in quickly and I can take it well. From now on it’s Sukari Time once a week. Preferably in the evening. During the day I always put on a high sun protection factor because acids are known to increase the skin’s sensitivity to light. In any case, my complexion always looks fresh, clear and glowy after the home peeling.

To travel during my profession as a beauty journalist was never enough for my. Also my six month on a world trip didn’t do it. It always attracts me to other cities, foreign countries, on roadtrips and places I don’t know yet. But I am not only interested in “culture” and “cream”, I am also fascinated by people who have stories to tell . Such unique experiences I want to share with you.
