Let’s Just Get to the Point:
F-Balm Electrolyte Waterfacial ($52), the latest innovation from Drunk Elephant, is a moisture explosion for dull, thirsty skin. As to be expected, the brand’s second-ever mask exceeds expectations in both the glow-boosting and serious-ingredient departments. What to expect: dewy, refreshed and recharged skin by morning.
If You Want to Know More:
I’m not one to get attached to too many skin-care products, but there are two masks I’ll stockpile for the rest of my days: Eve Lom Rescue Mask ($85) to save my skin from hormonal breakouts, and Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask ($65) to bring it back to life.
Now, thanks to the latest launch from Drunk Elephant, I have another to add to the list. This time, for when my skin looks—and feels—drier than the Sahara.
Despite its name, F-Balm is more of a thick water-cream than a sticky balm and is designed to act as the last step of your before-bed skin routine to rehydrate while you sleep. Packed with electrolytes and repairing ingredients, the mask layers effortlessly on top of your usual favorites and, without fail, greets you with a supermodel glow the morning after.
Among the barrier-repairing ingredient lineup: niacinamide, five forms of ceramides, sodium PCA, squalane, antioxidants and omega fatty acids, which together build up a thinning barrier over time and leaves behind healthy looking skin almost instantly.
The mask comes with a small sample of the T.L.C. Framboos™ Glycolic Resurfacing Night Serum ($90), which the brand recommends using underneath F-Balm for a gentle chemical exfoliation while you sleep (a match made in heaven).
Whether your goal is an all-over dewy glow or to kick those dry spots to the curb, this mask is about to be your new not-so-secret weapon.
