I’ve always wanted to try Drunk Elephant, but I never made the official jump until working with the brand in February. Just a disclaimer to preface this post: I have been gifted most of these products but there was no instruction or need to post any reviews about them. I simply love these products and what they have done for my skin in just a short period of time! If you have always wondered about Drunk Elephant but not sure which products are worth the investment, or maybe you are just curious about skincare in general – keep reading! For the sake of this post, I will go in order of how I normally apply the products, starting with my morning routine.
- No. 9 Jelly Cleanser
Using this cleanser first thing in the morning is a dream. Even though it says that you can skip the morning cleanse if you’ve cleaned the night before, It feels so good on my skin and I really feel like it gives a deep clean without leaving any residue. The packaging says it “removes all traces of makeup, excess oil, pollution, and any other grime from the day.” I have found this to be true and especially feel this way after wearing a full face of makeup most days.
- C-Tango Multivitamin Eye Cream
Exposing myself here, but I actually wasn’t using any eye cream prior to this one. I’ve been very cautious of a placebo effect and seeing my under-eye bags completely go away after one use, but I have definitely seen a big improvement. This cream not only helps diminish the appearance of under-eye bags, but it has also made my skin feel much tighter and bouncy in that area.
- C-Firma Day Serum
Introducing the game changer! This is the most amazing serum and it is definitely a must-have. I wasn’t using a vitamin C serum before I got this product, and I have definitely noticed that my skin appears brighter and more firm. You can just use two pumps for your entire face, it spreads really easily.
- Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil
This one is also soooo good! It feels amazing right away and doesn’t leave any oily residue. It’s perfect for reducing blotchiness and adding a beautiful glow to your skin under your makeup or if you are going for a no-makeup look as well!
- B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum
This is a great light moisturizer. My favorite part about this product is that it’s not too thick or creamy but it is still so so hydrating. In the past, I’ve had problems with moisturizers that cause build-up and don’t blend into the skin well at all. This one is great! If my skin is feeling extra dry, I mix it with the…
- Protini Polypeptide Moisturizer
This is great for some extra moisture and it is definitely more of a thicker texture than the B-Hydra. I love using this not only on my face but also on my neck! It’s perfect for giving your skin protein in both the morning and nighttime.
MUST-HAVES FOR NIGHTTIME ROUTINE (same as morning except for these products):
- T.L.C. Glycolic Night Serum
During my nighttime routine, I replace the vitamin C serum with this! As the bottle explains, it improves the “appearance of skin tone, texture, fine lines, wrinkles, and pores.” You can also 100% use this as a spot treatment for any blemishes you may have! This will save them overnight.
- A-Passioni Retinol Cream
When I say a little goes a long way, I’m not kidding. This is an amazing product but you have to build up a tolerance to the retinol. Start off with a pea-sized amount (or even smaller) and mix it into the moisturizer. You may feel a little stinging or see some redness, especially if you used too much. Your skin will get used to the retinol, and you will start to see the unbelievable results! P.S. Make sure to always use sunscreen the next day after retinol!
- F-Balm Electrolyte Waterfacial Masque Hydratant
This is the PERFECT overnight mask for hydration! Personally, I don’t like to wear masks to bed that feel thick or sticky on my face. This one feels just like an extra layer of moisturizer and you won’t even know it is there! All you feel is the perfect extra ounce of hydration. In the morning when I wash my face, it still feels super hydrated because of using this the night before. It’s great for those days when you feel like giving your skin a break overnight!
& lastly, ONCE A WEEK…
- T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial
The last product is the most powerful one for sure! This is an at-home facial that will leave your skin feeling so refreshed. It’s one of those products that you can FEEL working. Leave a thin layer on for 20 minutes and when you wash it off, you will notice a brighter and more soft complexion. Don’t freak out if your face is red afterward, that’s normal and happens to me most times. It’s just this amazing product at work!
