I tested the Drunk Elephant skin care line and found that each product are simple in its own way and designed to be used together. You can also switch up the order of use depending on how your skin feels on a particular day, or even mix them to boost effectiveness.
However, these products are rather pricey so it’s not necessary to jump the gun and buy all fourteen of them. Here’s a list of my top 4 Drunk Elephant products that I thoroughly enjoyed using, they have made quite a big difference to my skin.
The glycolic night serum has a blend of AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) and BHA (beta hydroxy acid) that work together to clear the skin from the deeper layers.
T.L.C. Framboos sinks in easily and delivers an effective level of chemical exfoliation without the harsh side effects like dryness or sensitization. I found that my fine lines, wrinkles and discoloration, along with my excess oiliness and the appearance of pores, appear dramatically diminished.
Inside this tall and beautiful baby blue-capped bottle is a gel type consistency serum that gives a lot of moisture to the skin. You use this B-Hydra serum after a toner all over the face it almost instantly feels smoother and plumper. It really leaves the nicest feeling on the skin. Also, there’s no slippery or shiny residue with i really like.
Because of the Citric Acid and the niacinamide it helps the fight against aging, there is also the niacinamide also helps to brighten the skin complex, this does not mean that it will lighten your skin but it will even out your skin.
Whether you have dry, combination, oily or sensitive, facial oils work for everyone! It’s more a matter of finding specific ingredients that are better suited for each skin type.
The Drunk Elephant marula oil is so, so luxurious feeling on the skin. It glides over and softens everything instantly, without clogging the pores. The oil is light and fast absorbing, but also soothing for sensitive skin.
So if you’re into facial oils I would highly recommend trying this out.
This cream was a pleasant surprise. At first I was confused what the difference was compared to the Lala Retro Whipped Cream, but found out after some light research on the Drunk Elephant website and testing them out for myself the main difference is the density and thickness of the texture. I would recommend the Lala Retro for drier skin types, and the Protini peptide for combination and/or oily skin – but they can also be mixed together! So whatever tickles your fancy. The texture was so luscious and smooth, not oily whatsoever.
