Drunk Elephant | F-Balm Electrolyte Waterfacial Mask: Review
It's only mid-January and Drunk Elephant already has its first new product of the decade! Described as a "cooling, hydrating overnight mask" formulated with an electrolyte cocktail, the F-Balm Electrolyte Waterfacial Mask (C$68 for 50 ml) promises to maintain hydration, boost firmness, improve barrier strength, calm redness, and diminish the look of lines. I've been test-driving the product for about a week now and feel ready to share my thoughts with you today. To read my review, click......

Housed in an airless pump bottle, the F-Balm Electrolyte Waterfacial Mask has a water base infused with squalane, niacinamide, olive oil, coconut alkanes, electrolyte-rich coconut water and prickly pear extract, jojoba oil, marula oil, sodium, and magnesium. The niacinamide boosts firmness and diminishes the appears of pores and wrinkles while the electrolyte blend maintains hydration and improves the barrier strength of the skin. The formulation is also high in vitamin F, which is a combination of linolenic and linoleic fatty acids that nourishes the skin and reduces redness. The formulation is free of drying alcohol, silicones, fragrances, and a plethora of other irritating ingredients.

With a light and quick-absorbing texture that reminds me of a non-greasy day moisturizer, the F-Balm Electrolyte Waterfacial Mask is intended to be used as a sleeping mask/nighttime moisturizer. Drunk Elephant advises using four to five pumps each time but I feel that that is way too much product and I'm already very generous with skincare application. However, because the formulation is quite light, you can easily get away with a thicker application. Additionally, the silicone-free formulation layers well with other skincare products with no pilling or patching. There is virtually no residue so for my oily skin, the finish is very refreshing and pleasant. The formulation does a great job at maintaining hydration and my skin looks healthy and moisturized in the morning. However, as compared to heavier nighttime moisturizers (ex. Drunk Elephant's Lala Retro Whipped Moisturizer), the F-Balm Electrolyte Waterfacial Mask doesn't feel as nourishing. Therefore, those with dry to very dry skin may not find the formulation sufficiently conditioning. However, the F-Balm is a great moisturizer/sleeping mask for oily skin. I haven't tried yet but I think the product would also work as a day moisturizer because it's so lightweight and breathable!
