F-Balm Electrolyte Waterfacial Mask
What It IsA cooling, hydrating overnight mask that plumps with an electrolyte cocktail while supporting the skin’s natural acid mantle.
What Else You Need to KnowBarrier-supporting ingredients niacinamide, sodium PCA, plant squalane, ceramides, omega fatty acids, and antioxidants rehydrate hungover, parched skin, making it soft and supple, improving signs of damage and uneven texture and tone. Vitamin F beads deliver extra emollience and soothing hydration. Drunk Elephant is committed to using only ingredients that either directly benefit the health of the skin or support the integrity of their formulations. They never take into account whether something is synthetic or natural, instead choosing ingredients based on biocompatibility. That’s why they focus on healthy pH levels, formulations the skin recognizes, small molecular structure that’s easily absorbed, and effective active ingredients that also support and maintain the skin’s acid mantle. But what they leave out of their products is just as important as what they put into them, so you will never find what they call the Suspicious 6 (essential oils, drying alcohols, silicones, chemical sunscreens, fragrances/dyes, SLS) in their line. Drunk Elephant believes that these six ubiquitous ingredients are at the root of almost every skin issue, and when they’re removed entirely from your routine—that is, when you take a Drunk Break™—skin can reset and return to its healthiest, most balanced state. This ingredient-elimination diet benefits all skin types and inspired the #barewithus Instagram movement, a collection of bare-faced selfies that chronicles the Drunk Elephant journeys of people who have found not only healthier skin but more importantly, healthier self-confidence. Drunk Elephant is a supporter of IEF (International Elephant Foundation) and is cruelty-free.

My Favourite Hydration/Moisture Products
Hydration and moisture are so, so important! I had the most oily skin for years and it never occurred to me to use a cream- so when I found my oil production subsiding a bit after introducing a hydration serum and moisturizer, I was amazed. Excess oil production can be the skin trying to moisturize itself via sebum. Here are my rec’s: PAULA'S CHOICE - 10% Niacinamide Booster contains such a variety of humectants that I consider it a hydrating serum. Hydrating while also balancing oil production, this is amazing for every skin type. stratia - Liquid Gold is packed with emollients and some humectants, making it a good serum for dry skin and the perfect moisturizer for oily skin. DRUNK ELEPHANT - B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum helps to reduce oil production but primarily gives skin the hydration it craves. This is a good serum for all skin types but lacks the emollients to be a moisturizer. DRUNK ELEPHANT - F-Balm Electrolyte Waterfacial Mask is the perfect cream to use after an acid if your skin is sensitive. It’d be a great moisturizer (thanks to squalane) for oily skin and is a nice add-on for dry skin. DRUNK ELEPHANT - Lala Retro Whipped Moisturizer with Ceramides worked for my skin when I was an oil slick and it saves my flaky face when my eczema goes Sahara desert. This fluffy moisturizer is perfect for all skin types, though dry skin in the winter may need to add an oil. The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 is a hydrating serum that is just what dehydrated and/or oily skin needs- however I’d caution users that hyaluronic acid can be drying if you live in an arid environment. It also doesn’t have the most elegant texture, so give it an extra minute to soak in! PAULA'S CHOICE - Probiotic Nutrient Moisturizer moisturizes without shine, managing to be rich yet soaking in very quickly. It may be a bit too light for dry skin in the PM but oily/combo skin will love it. PAULA'S CHOICE - Omega + Complex Serum If you have sensitive, combination, and/or dry skin, buy this. It contains emollients, humectants, and is perfect for soothing skin. Oily skin will also likely enjoy this serum for its surprising lightness, but in my experience it is too light to be used as a moisturizer.
PAULA'S CHOICE-10% Niacinamide Booster

Drunk Elephant: Worth The Hype?
🐘 If you’ve ever so much as googled skincare you’ve likely heard of Drunk Elephant. People have been losing their minds over this brand for years now and every product they release seems to be accompanied by a plethora of raving reviews and cute instagram pictures. But are they worth it. 🐘 My experience with DE has been about 50/50. Some of the products have been AMAZING and some have been disappointing and for the DE price tag I do expect it to be at least within the range of amazing. So here’s one win and one lose for me from Drunk Elephant. 🐘 WIN: C Tango Multivitamin Eye Cream..oh my god am I picky about eye cream and my god did this live up to the hype for me. This makes my under eyes INCREDIBLY soft and noticeably firmas, plumps, and brightens. This eye cream retails for $64 and contains 5 types of vitamin c, 8 types of peptides, and antioxidant rich cucumber. I have dark circles and sunken looking under eyes and this is one of the only eye creams that has ever made a difference for me. It’s a rich creamy texture and I strongly recommend. 🐘 LOSE: F Balm Electolyte Waterfacial Mask...I was so bummed out about this. F Balm is a hydrating mask containing fatty acid rich Vitamin F, soothing Niacinamide, and 4 hydrating electrolytes. I loved the ingredients but this did nothing for me. This retails for $52 and is a lightweight cream texture...however it’s so light it just kind of vanishes when I put it on my face...it doesn’t even really make my skin feel soft it just kind of...disappears and I feel like I need a moisturizer afterwards. Definitely not worth it for me.

Do I Need a Skincare Fridge?
In short. No. BUT!! It’s a nice luxury. I was fortunate enough to receive a cute lil skincare fridge in PR around a year ago and yes I have used it the whole time. I like to store my gel products, mists, vitamin c, sheet masks, Rose quartz roller and eye creams in there. Especially for a hydrating mask like DRUNK ELEPHANT - F-Balm Electrolyte Waterfacial Mask or GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon + AHA Glow Sleeping Mask it just feels so soothing and kills inflammation when you have it cooled (same as an eye cream like DRUNK ELEPHANT - Shaba Complex Firming Eye Serum ). A cool mist like the GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow Ultra-Fine Mist feels so soothing and ultra refreshing in the fridge too. One reason why I might say it’s close to a necessity, would be that it prolongs the shelf life and prevents early oxidation of pure vitamin c serums that contain l Ascorbic acid like OSEA - Brightening Serum or DRUNK ELEPHANT - C-Firma Vitamin C Day Serum . But at the end of the day, if you are properly storing your skincare out of the sun and heat, it will stay in its best form. The fridge is just a luxury if you’re a hardcore skincare fanatic or have chronic puffiness and need your products cooled ❤️
Nightly routine saved my Dry skin 🌙🌙
These have saved my skin. These are great for my sensitive skin and has helped prevent dry flaky patches The glossier milky jelly cleanser feels amazing on the skin. It doesn’t foam up which is great since it feels like a moisturizer. Glossier. - Milky Jelly Cleanser After washing my face I love using the ordinary hyaluronic acid, it helps keep my skin moist. When you first apply it it soaks into your skin quick so make sure you follow with moisturizer immediately. Pro tip✨✨: make sure you pat it into your skin instead of rubbing it in. It prevents wrinkles and goes into the skin evenly. The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 I follow with the kiehls ultra facial cream and it’s my holy grail. On initial application it feels amazing. It’s so soft and it’s not super heavy or thick. I’m almost out of this and I will definitely buy another one. Kiehl's - Ultra Facial Cream I apply the drunk elephant f-balm as my last step for the night and it locks all the moisture in without my face looking greasy. It’s my holy grail. DRUNK ELEPHANT - F-Balm Electrolyte Waterfacial Mask Lips need some loving too so I love using the glossier balm dot calm in mint. It feels amazing and the scent is very delicious. I am obsessed with mint scents. Glossier. - Balm Dotcom Also make sure you drink lots of water everyday, it’s amazing for your skin and also for your health. Yes everyone says you should do it but once I make the switch to drinking more water everyday I definitely see the difference. It takes time so you gotta do it all your life.
Drunk Elephant Line Rapid Review: Part 1
Brief peeks into my latest opinions of various Drunk Elephant products: • DRUNK ELEPHANT - Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser is a deep-cleaning gel cleanser that is strong enough to take off sweat and sunscreen, but I find it needs a primary cleanse if I’m wearing makeup. Can be bit harsh if I’m having an eczema flare-up but is otherwise gentle and good for most skin. • DRUNK ELEPHANT - Slaai Makeup-Melting Butter Cleanser is a super gentle balm cleanser that I love to leave on as a moisturizing mask before I use it to wash off my makeup. Doesn’t irritate my eyes and is perfect for sensitive skin. • DRUNK ELEPHANT - C-Firma Vitamin C Day Serum is a potent vitamin c serum that lightens hyperpigmentation very well within months of use. However, it is too potent for my skin, so I dilute it heavily if I use it. • DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Resurfacing Night Serum makes skin so soft and smooth! It helps bumpy texture wonderfully. Again, super potent- I have to be sure to use a small amount dilute in a serum and applied over top of my moisturizer. Improves skin texture very fast. • DRUNK ELEPHANT - Lala Retro Whipped Moisturizer with Ceramides is and always will be a favourite. Creamy yet fluffy. Rich and quenching. Perfect for sensitive skin. Never leaves me shiny! • DRUNK ELEPHANT - F-Balm Electrolyte Waterfacial Mask is another favourite- it’s perfect for dehydrated, dry, or sensitive skin. I always use it after an acid product to prevent inflammation and sensitivity. A surprising texture, due to the beads of fatty acids, and it soaks in quickly. • DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial Mask is so, so, so potent! It’s amazing. A single use leaves my skin baby soft and glowing. However, the potency that gives instant results makes it so strong that I can only use it every other week. But I’ll keep doing so because it’s so wonderful feeling my smooth, soft skin afterwards. • DRUNK ELEPHANT - Virgin Marula Antioxidant Face Oil is the best oil I’ve ever tried in terms of super fast absorption and lack of shine. It leaves me dewy, not greasy, and a couple drops is the perfect boost to my moisturizers. It is a bit pricy though considering I only use it in the PM unless it’s winter, making the quick absorption only important for 3 months of the year. • DRUNK ELEPHANT - Umbra Sheer Physical Daily Defense Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30 No white cast, no tingling, no congestion. Buuut I am a little shiny if I use this in the summer, so this is my preferred winter sunscreen and would be perfect for dry-skinned folks.
