Who about what, I about masks. I couldn’t resist the new Drunk Elephant F-Balm ™ Electrolyte Waterfacial hydrating night mask either. The packaging states that thanks to the mixture of electrolytes in the composition, it fills and regenerates the skin while strengthening its natural acidic mantle (a thin hydrolipid film that protects the skin from moisture loss and microorganisms).
Furthermore, according to the manufacturer, this mask hydrates dry and dehydrated skin, making it soft and supple. It contains ingredients that act on the skin barrier: niacinamide, PCA sodium, plant squalane, five types of ceramides, omega fatty acids, and powerful antioxidants that effectively rehydrate the skin. Vitamin F-filled microcapsules dissolve on the application and provide additional soothing hydration. The mask reduces the signs of skin damage and evens out its complexion and texture.
It does not contain essential oils, silicones, fragrance, and PEG (polyethylene glycol). The ingredients are of vegan origin and the company does not test on animals. They are at the forefront of the clean cosmetics concept. All products contain lettuce oil.
Apply 4-5 pump strokes as the last step in the evening routine. It can also be applied after Drunk Elephant mar lettuce oil for extra hydration. The package also includes a free bottle of night serum with 3 ml glycolic acid. The logic of this packaging is very clear, glycolic acid will remove dead skin cells and allow better absorption of the mask into the skin.
WHAT MAKES IT SPECIAL? COMPOSITION!
A blend of four electrolytes that are powerful antioxidants and humectants (coconut water, sodium PCA, magnesium PCA, and prickly pear extract). Electrolytes are crucial for maintaining the level of hydration in the skin, strengthening its barrier and soothing redness of the skin and protecting it from dehydration caused by external influences.
Vitamin F, ie soothing fatty acids (linoleic and linolenic) plays an important role in maintaining hydration levels, improve skin texture and its suppleness, and reduce inflammation and strengthen the acidic mantle of the skin.
Niacinamide, better known as vitamin B3, has a wide range of effects, and among the most important is its role in improving the signs of aging (wrinkles, wrinkles, loss of tone) and even out skin tone and texture.
A mixture of 5 ceramides (ceramides AP, NP EOP, NS, EOS) obtained from plants, which are identical to the wax-like hydrating substance found naturally in the skin. They soothe the skin and maintain the level of hydration and protect it from moisture loss. Ceramides give the skin elasticity and play a key role in strengthening the skin barrier.
Squalane derived from olives is structurally identical to squalane found naturally in the skin and is one of the natural hydration factors (NMF). Squalane, therefore, acts as hydration and natural antioxidant that soothes the skin and prevents the loss of moisture from the skin surface without leaving an excessive oily glow.
Quercetin is a strong natural antioxidant from the group of bioflavonoids, which has a pronounced anti-inflammatory effect. Some research has confirmed its role in stimulating collagen production and healing damaged skin.

The mask absorbs quickly and does not leave a sticky film on the face. As soon as you apply it, it has a cooling effect. Like all Drunk Elephant products, this one did not disappoint me. The mask did everything they say! In the morning, the skin is nourished, soft, and full. The difference is visible after only a few applications! I used it on my own, and sometimes after lettuce oil. This combination of oil and mask proved to be very effective because in the morning my skin was extremely hydrated, elastic, and supple, and it got the so-called. “watery” glow.
Great winter product for dehydrated skin!
