Drunk Elephant TLC Sukari Babyfacial
Drunk Elephant
“This really is the closest thing you can get to a facial at home; I love how it tingles. It has 25% AHA and 2% BHA blend of glycolic, salicylic, lactic, citric and tartaric acid to deeply exfoliate, minimize appearance of pores and smooth texture. It genuinely works and I wake up with super glowy, soft skin.”
