The Ordinary VS Drunk Elephant
🩸So in this post I’m going to compare The Ordinary’s AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution with Drunk Elephant’s TLC Sukari Babyfacial. I’m a little bit addicted to chemical exfoliant and I love a nice intense weekly peel so here goes. 🩸Drunk Elephant Babyfacial 🩸Price: $80 🩸Active Ingredients: 25% AHA blend (glycolic, tartaric, lactic and citric), 2% BHA (salicylic), chickpea flour (brightening and balancing), and pumpkin ferment extract (enzymatic exfoliator) 🩸Call Outs: Free of: Parabens, Sulfates, Pthalates, Alcohol, Silicone, Fragrance, Essential Oils, Mineral Oil, and Formaldehydes Clean at Sephora Vegan Cruelty Free 🩸Experience: The texture of this is a lightweight creamy consistency. The directions say to apply a thin layer on clean, dry skin and leave on for 20 minutes then rinse thoroughly. I don’t feel very much of a tingling sensation with this product but my skin is pretty used to acids. I like to follow this with a richer oil and moisturizer. I don’t honestly notice a huge difference in my skin after using this unfortunately especially for the price tag. I have really good luck with a lot of Drunk Elephant products but this one just did not do it for me. 🩸The Ordinary 30% AHA + 2% BHA Peeling Solution 🩸Price: $7.20 🩸Active Ingredients: 30% AHA blend (glycolic, lactic, tartaric, and citric ), 2% BHA (salicylic) hyaluronic acid cross polymer (hydrating and plumping), vitamin B5 (healing), black carrot (antioxidant rich) and Tasmanian Pepperberry Extract (soothing) 🩸Call Outs: Free Of: Alcohol, Oil, Silicone, Nuts, Gluten, Parabens, Pthalates, Formaldehydes, andMineral Oil Vegan Cruelty Free 🩸Experience: This has the texture of a slightly viscous serum. The color of it is a scary looking deep red that legitimately looks like you smeared blood all over your face. The directions say to apply a thin layer to clean dry skin and leave on 8-10 minutes but no longer than 10. This is not a suggestion. I repeat: do not leave this serum on your face for longer than 10 minutes. It tingles intensely...it feels like a million tiny pins lightly poking you and if you have any open wounds or acne you’ve picked at you will definitely feel a little bit of burning. I like to follow this with a heavy oil and moisturizer as well. I have to say this is my favorite product The Ordinary makes and also my favorite peel of all time. It leaves my skin looking so bright and smooth even my nose which never looks bright or smooth looks like literal glass after using this stuff. This stuff is amazing especially for the price. Absolutely recommend if you’re in the market for a peel.
