The drunk Elephant team send out a whole range of skincare products to my attention to try. I was super excited to try their skincare range since I’ve heard a lot about the brand I really wanted to try and see the hype. The brand carries a great range of skincare products that are designed to target and address different skin types and skin-related concerns which I find quite helpful and easy for someone who’s new skincare treatments to pick their skincare products accordingly. Here is a closer look at the products I used I love in my skincare routine.
Best No. 9 Jelly Cleanser ($32) is a nice gentle cleanser and removes the most stubborn makeup especially the eye makeup without stripping or drying the skin. it has a nice jelly texture that is nice for the summer season and quite soothing. I’ve been loving the jelly texture in my morning routine.
Protin Powerpeptide Resurfacing Serum with Lactic Acid ($82) is a good AHA treatment that I’ve been loving lately to exfoliate and resurface my skin. I only use it twice a week in my morning skincare routine. It’s a good treatment with a P.H 3.5 slightly more vital for sensitive skin. The texture is light and sinks into the skin immediately. The Protin Polypeptide Firming Moisturizer ($68) is a good way to keep the skin well hydrated and look after the fine lines and wrinkle that shows up. I loved the texture and the nourishing formula that adds nice plumpness to the skin while doesn’t feel heavy at all. The skincare line is designed for more mature skin and for someone who’s more concerned about the prevention of fine lines and wrinkles. I think if you’re over 35 years old, this is a great range to start with.
C-Firma Fresh Vitamin-C Day Serum ($78) is a good brightening serum that adds a nice glow and radiance to the skin with P.H 2.5 and a potent 15% of daily Vitamin C. If you’re in the market for a brightening serum to start within your skincare routine then this is a good one to start with. I love Vitamin C in my skincare routine, the serum is very lightweight and can easily introduce to the skincare routine. I love how the formula is packaged separately to be mixed by you before its use, so it could keep the effectiveness of the potent.
I also tried the other products that were sent out to me because the brand did impress me with its effectiveness. Still, I found these average and are good if you want to start with a skincare routine and hydration is the concern but not too intense which includes the B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum with Hyaluronic Acid ($48) is a great lightweight and hydrating moisturizer that sinks into the skin and is great for hydration. Lala Retro Whipped Moisturizer with Ceramides ($60) Is a good moisturizer, especially for summertime. The formula is light and doesn’t feel heavy at all. I loved applying it under my full coverage foundation and keeping the foundation in place and keeping the skin looking fresh throughout the day.
T.L.C. Framboo Glycolic Resurfacing Night Serum ($134) is a good resurfacing serum as well for the nighttime routine. I find this one is more for oily to combination skin. It works great but if I had to choose between this and Protin Powerpeptide Resurfacing Serum then definitely the Protin Powerpeptide Resurfacing Serum is something I would prefer for my skin but if you have large pores with oily skin then T.L.C. Framboo Glycolic Resurfacing Night Serum is a better option.
You all know I love a good facial oil and the Virgin Marula Luxury Face Oil ($68) impressed me. Although I don’t use oils at this time of the year I will be starting to introduce this into my fall/winter skincare routine.
Another obsession I love to do with my skin is overnight Masks. F-Bal Electrolyte Waterfacial Mask ($52) is a perfect overnight face mask for spring/summertime. It carries a very lightweight with a cooling effect on the skin and you wake up with the most subtle and plump skin in the morning. I’ve loved this in my skincare routine lately.
Their Lippe Balm ($24) is quite nourishing and hydrating and immediately repairs the lips. This lip balm is probably one with simple elements but is very rich in texture. I am not too crazy about the lip balm but it’s a good decent lip balm with a hydrating element. I still like it and use it when I see dry patches on my lips.
I do find the brand carries a great range of products for all ages and different skin-targeted issues. I would highly recommend taking a look at the range especially if you’re looking to start with a gentle skincare line in the market.
