DRUNK IN LOVE WITH DRUNK ELEPHANT
If you follow me on instagram you have probably noticed that I love using Drunk Elephant products in my skincare routines. My love with Drunk Elephant has started back in 2019 and ever since then I have been using their products and many of them I have repurchased over and over again. I recently tried out some of their body and hair products but I will share them in a separate blog post so keep an eye for that.
There’s nothing making me more happy than working with brands that I truly love. In this post I will be reviewing all the Drunk Elephant products I’ve tried so far.
Beste No.9 Jelly Cleanser – fragrance free cleanser, meant to be used as both morning and evening cleanser. However, I did find it a bit strong for a morning cleanser so I only used it as my evening cleanser. Gives a good thorough clean of your skin without drying it.
C-Tango Vitamin C Eye Cream – based on vitamin C, gives a really good hydration to the under eye area. But, I haven’t noticed that it does anything to reduce under eye bags or brighten the area.
Shaba Complex Eye Serum– this product is one of my holy grail products when it comes to skincare. I think this is my 3rd bottle of the Shaba Complex Eye Serum. This so far is the only eye cream that I have noticed a huge difference when it comes to reducing under eye bags.
B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum – based on ceramide, vitamin B5 and sodium hyaluronate. Gives deep hydration of the skin, I pair it whenever I use DE retinol and/or T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Night serum
C-Firma Fresh Day Serum – I love using vitamin-C based serums in my routine. And this one is no exception, recently DE improved the packaging of their vitamin C serum, now the powder and the ampoule arrive unmixed, you mix them yourself which protects the serum from oxidizing during travel. Vitamin C is great for fading dark spots and brightening the complexion.
T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Night Serum – a chemical exfoliator that gets rid of the dead skin and improves the skin texture, tone, pores and fine lines. I’ve been using this serum for years and I have definitely seen great results in terms of the texture and the tone of my skin. I use it 2-3 time a week in my pm routine.
A-Passioni Retinol Cream – I’ve tried many retinols, and so far this is the best one. It’s 1% retinol so I would not suggest to be used for beginners (try with 0,25 or 0,5% first to get your skin used to). I use it 3 times a week in my evening routine.
Lala Retro Whipped Cream – ceramide based cream this is a pretty heavy moisturizer, I only use it during colder months as I find it too heavy for my skin in the warmer months. Although it’s heavy and thick it absorbs nicely, and doesn’t feel heavy on the skin.
Protini Polypeptide Cream – peptide based moisturizer, I love the packaging of DE moisturizers and the dispenser, but this moisturizer is AMAZING especially now during colder months when my skin needs a bit extra of moisture. I love that it hydrates the skin, but it doesn’t feel heavy or a sticky layer and it absorbs nicely although the moisturizer is quite thick.
Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil– rich with antioxidants and omegas 6 and 9, that nourish and hydrate the skin. It’s one of the few facial oils that I’ve tried that doesn’t leave an oily and greasy looking layer. Whenever, I want to pamper my skin a bit more I apply this oil.
T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial– based on AHA/BHA acids that gives deep and effective chemical exfoliation to your skin. It gives a sense of tingling when applied, the tingling is bigger the first few times. After the “facial” your skin is glowing! It smooths out the skin leaving it soft, improves the tone and complexion and gives a really nice glow.
Umbra Tint Physical Daily Defense SPF30 – tinted cream with SPF, perfect for those who don’t use foundation. The cream is lightweight it absorbs quickly, I did notice that it wears off quickly, but like any other SPF cream it has to be reapplied.
