Drunk Elephant Review



Another exciting beauty post! I enjoy these so much.

 This time I got the chance to try out a variety of Drunk Elephant's skincare products, if you don't use the brand already, I'm pretty sure you have seen them at Sephora, they are the cutest and most colorful products you'll find in there. They are clean beauty, they are not scented which is something I really like because sometimes the ''perfume'' some skincare products have can irritate your skin without you even knowing, the packaging is beautiful and functional, I really, really love them.


They were kind enough to send me this beautiful package full of their products for me to try and share my experience with you guys. I was actually very surprised by the number of things they sent over and of course the beautiful and very useful travel bag.







I've been using most of the products for several days now, so I think I have a decent knowledge of what these products can do for your skin.








This is the Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser it's for all types of skin types (Normal, Oily, Combination, Sensitive), it's also great removing makeup and oiliness, as I mentioned earlier their products are fragrance-free so it's totally non-irritating, non-sensitizing. I actually have been using the cleanser for a year now and I truly love it.







The C-Tango Multivitamin Eye Cream is a rich and restorative eye cream featuring eight peptides, five forms of vitamin c, and cucumber extract for visibly firmer, brighter-looking skin. It helps reduce fine lines, wrinkles, loss of firmness, elasticity, and dryness. I really love how my undereye area looks and feels to the touch, the morning after applying a pump of the cream. I highly recommend this one, they also suggest to store it on the fridge for a cooling treatment. How cool is that? 





Let's talk about the T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Resurfacing Night Serum, it is ''an AHA/BHA night serum that resurfaces congested skin by lifting away dead skin cells to improve skin tone, texture, fine lines, wrinkles, and pores.'' It's for normal, dry, combination, and oily skin types. It's great for Dullness and Uneven Texture, Pores, and Uneven Skin Tone.



  You should always read carefully whatever you're applying to your skin for the first time because even though you've never experienced a bad reaction to certain products before, it's something that can totally happen in the future. Your skin can react differently to a product you've been using for years and of course, can react in a bad way in response to new components and ingredients. 


 Why am I telling you all this? well, because Mandy here was a little too confident about her skin behavior throughout the years so I simply applied all the products, step by step, BUT I didn't take that seriously the fact that they suggest starting LITTLE BY LITTLE with this Serum. They clearly say that ''A slight tingling may be experienced—particularly for the first few days of application. This typically dissipates as your skin becomes adjusted. Start slowly by using every other night.''


I did feel the ''tingling'' sensation but honestly, that's something I've felt with different products before so I expected that. They also suggest applying the product any other day if your skin is sensitive, well I clearly thought mine wasn't and I applied the Serum at night four nights in a row, the first couple of days my skin was GLOWING, simply amazing, and pure perfection if I can say so myself BUT the 4th day was a Sunday, I was having breakfast and I suddenly felt my right cheek itching, itching very bad, I honestly thought that something bit me. 


When I saw myself in the mirror Oh lord, my skin was extremely red, irritated, and full of these little bumps, I was freaking out, I thought I had an allergic reaction to something, I read all my skincare products one by one again and I immediately knew that I messed up using the Serum the way I was using it. I cleaned my face, took an antiallergic, and prayed for it to go away. My skin started looking ''normal'' that afternoon but I still felt a little itchy, the bumps were still there so I stopped using the serum for a week and my skin finally went back to normal. I kept using the rest of the products and so far so GOOD. Please just make sure to be cautious and READ EVERYTHING.








The Protini Polypeptide Moisturizer is amazing! It's a protein moisturizer that will help with dryness, dullness, uneven texture, and loss of firmness and elasticity. My skin feels incredible after applying this and the product lasts ages!






One of my favorite products without a doubt is their Virgin Marula Antioxidant Face Oil Oh my God, this thing makes your skin feel like GLORY. ''It's a facial oil rich in critical antioxidants and omega 6 and 9, Virgin Marula Antioxidant Oil Face Oil moisturizes, nurtures, and balances while restoring a youthful glow.'' I simply apply two to three drops evenly to my face, and neck, but they say you can perfectly use it on your chest, hands, cuticles, backs of arms, or any place needing increased moisture without any greasy residue for balanced, glowing, healthy-looking skin. This is a KEEPER and a WINNER to me!








Another one I've been using a lot lately is their Umbra Sheer Physical Daily Defense Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30 it is ''A sheer physical sunscreen that delivers powerful broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection and aids in the prevention of free radical and oxidative damage.'' I apply it every morning before doing my makeup.






This is their A-Passioni Retinol Cream I still haven't used this one, because after my little situation with the Night Serum I'm being more ''mindful'' especially because it has retinol. They say it's ''A clean, cutting edge formula with one-percent vegan retinol and superfood-rich ingredients to diminish the look of fine lines, wrinkles, and sun damage.'' You can apply it night or day but as the Night Serum, they suggest limiting initial use to once or twice a week, gradually increasing frequency to every other night and then every night as tolerated. I think I'll be doing that this week, follow me on my Instagram, I'll be updating you on my stories.






 I still have a few more products to try out, I'll be updating you on those as well on my stories. Have you tried the brand before? what's your favorite product? tell me all about your experience in the comments!
