Want skin like a baby? Try Drunk Elephant- Sukari Babyfacial

As others have noted, this is as close as you are going to get to a professional peel at home. The 25% AHA and 2% BHA combo is almost scary. There is a reason why the directions say to only use once a week and not to use if you are using a retinoid.

I first patch tested on the back of my hands just to see how I would fare and removed after 10 minutes. The back of my hands were as smooth as glass, devoid of lines and looked like a baby's bottom. I like couldn't stop touching the back of my hands in awe. I also did follow-up with the Marula oil on the back of my hands. Like the back of my hands were like glass. They even reflected light (whereas like my arm where I hadn't put this product on did not).

Reassured by the great results on the back of my hands, I then tried applying a generous layer of this to the entirety of my face, under my chin and neck and let it sit for about 10 minutes before I rinsed off and then washed my face. Again, my face just looked and felt like glass afterward. My facial skin looked so smooth and polished and felt so refreshed and like it could breath. It reminded me of how my skin would feel when I use to get professional diamond facial peels that would remove the surface layer of dead skin to reveal the new baby skin underneath.

I did not suffer any irritation, redness or flakiness afterward. This product tingles when on just a little bit but it quickly dissipates and my face did not have any reaction afterward (with no breakouts which sometimes happens to me when I use too strong products).

 My face looked younger when I woke up the next day and my pores and especially my chin were completely decongested. I have used Retin-A and this gives more immediate gratification results.

I would recommend this product for those who want to mimic a professional peel at home and who are not on a retinoid (or at least your skin has had a break from it for several days). I would keep it a light skincare day (just moisturizer and spf) the day after using this peel.

This product is a BUY!  For $72 at Sephora, it is much more cost effective than going for a professional facial every few months with the same result.  If you try it, I would love to her your thoughts.
