This month, Drunk Elephant, a clean skincare brand released their first hydrating overnight mask, the F-Balm Electrolyte Waterfacial to their line of already well-loved products.
Drunk Elephant, created by Tiffany Masterson, was “born out of a passion to learn more about toxic ingredients, the effect they have on skin health, and to get to the root of what causes “sensitive” skin,” Drunk Elephant’s website states. The company formulates their products with your health in mind, using only ingredients that either directly benefit the skin’s health or support the integrity and effectiveness of their formulations.
What makes Drunk Elephant’s products so great is that they are formulated without what they call the suspicious six, which are products such as essential oils, drying alcohols, silicones, chemical sunscreens, fragrances/dyes and SLS. They believe that leaving these ingredients out of their products make them good for all skin types. Masterson feels that when your skin is exposed to irritants and sensitizers, it can become damaged. She was able to develop a line of skincare products which help to directly benefit the skin in a way that is not harsh or toxic.
The F-Balm Electrolyte Waterfacial, which launched in stores on Jan. 1, is the perfect night-cap for your skincare routine, formulated with a blend of barrier-replenishing ingredients such as niacinamide, sodium PCA, plant squalane, five forms of ceramides, omega fatty acids and powerful antioxidants; this product will rehydrate your skin leaving it soft and supple. In addition to restoring the balance of hydration and moisture levels in skin, F-Balm Electrolyte Waterfacial can also improve signs of damage, uneven tone and texture.
To use: simply apply four to five pumps of the product as the last step in your skincare routine. This product may be worn to bed as an overnight mask and can also be layered with other Drunk Elephant products, such as their Virgin Marula Oil or their T.L.C. Framboos for a gentle chemical exfoliation. One of the greatest advantages to using this overnight mask is that it doesn’t have to be washed off in the morning, so you can just get up and go. This product is 100 percent free of essential oils, silicones and fragrance.
