So after two weeks I kind of know what I like and what I won’t invest in again. Drunk Elephant isn’t a cheap brand it’s luxury. I am completely behind investing in your skin. I know my main focus on this is my wedding but I will be maintaining this after.
I am going on holiday soon so I will take this skin care set with me. There is a surprising amount of product in these tiny bottles.
Shaba Complex Eye Serum
£50 for 15ml.
Can be used day and night. Did you know that eye cream should never be carried all the way up to your eye line?
Me neither apparently it does it’s work without needing to go all the way. You should apply it with your pinky!
Meh! It was okay. I used it because I wanted to do the range justice but I didn’t like the texture. It felt almost scratchy especially compared to the texture of everything else, like a paste and took a while to absorb.
Drunk Elephant don’t use scents in there products which is nice but strange. There was nothing wrong with it. I just didn’t see any results or improvements. I will keep using it till my bottle gets empty but I won’t re buy it!
Confession: I don’t really believe in eye creams!
C Firma Day Serum
£67 for 30ml
This is supposed to be a potent vitamin C day serum. It contains antioxidants, essential nutrients and fruit enzymes, all of which work together to firm and brighten the appearance of skin and minimise signs of ageing. I love a serum. Ever since the Elizabeth Arden one I cannot get enough of them.
This is a lovely thin serum and I used it in conjunction with the B- Hydra which is thicker. I felt when I used it it was still really tacky. Now I know from my research that it Is supposed to be tacky. A skincare blogger I follow was trying the same products and we both agree they are better together.
The serum isn’t as amazing as Elizabeth Arden, as in I didn’t see the results straight away.
But I need to tell you… my skin is so soft and hydrated at the moment it makes me so happy. So the serum is working I just think maybe I need to bite the bullet and just buy the expensive one.
So will I buy it again… maybe but maybe not. I feel like I would notice it’s absence if it wasn’t in my routine. The Ordinary have a Vitamin C product that set my skin on fire. This was gentle and lovely. I think I just talked myself into buying it again.
That maybe just turned into a yes!
B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum
£44 for 50ml
This is an intensive hydration serum is ideal for thirsty skin. It is enriched with ultra-hydrating vitamin B5 and pineapple ceramides to attract and hold moisture throughout the day for a visibly brightened, plump and even result.
This is soothing without a richness. Your skin will thank you for using this product.
Yes, the answer is yes! I love this product. I don’t think any other product maybe swoon as much as this. It’s heaven, light and soothing.
This is has helped with the C-firma.
I want this product in my life forever! Can you tell that I love it.
Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser
This cleanser removes all traces of make up, excess oil and pollution without stripping, to ensure your skin stays smooth and soft as well as clean. Yes it does all that. Your skin doesn’t feel dry or thirsty like other cleansers can do.
This is a soft gentle cleanser. The lid is a little tricky. It’s a twist rather than an unscrew and a few times I have squeezed too much product out without thinking. As a cleanser it is nice.
Drunk Elephant pride themselves on not using the suspicious 6 and scent especially! So it’s strange for me to wash my face without the luxury of smell.
I have two favourite cleansers and they are both Elemis the balm cleanser which doesn’t have a strong smell but makes you smile as you spot it and the Rose balm cleanser which smells exactly like a rose garden.
At £68 for 200mls a pop it should be, it lasts and I look forward to washing my face with it! The Drunk Elephant is only £27 for 150mls it nice.
But this is just nice so will I purchase again. Probably not unless I buy another kit.
T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Night Serum
This night serum 12% alpha and beta hydroxy acid night serum helps to refine and resurface skin, revealing a smoother and more radiant complexion in the morning. Blended with raspberry extract it delivers effective exfoliation without harsh side effects.
So this serum is lovely.
I wish it smelt of raspberries how amazing would that be!!
I am used to retinols on my skin so I didn’t experience any tingling. For me this is lovely my skin in the morning. I can’t stop touching my skin!
I did use it in conjunction with the virgin oil then cleaned my teeth to let it absorb.
Would I buy it again… if I suddenly could afford to buy this all the time I would but I can’t. Like I said I could put this £72 towards my Elizabeth Arden serum that I dream about. Yes they do different things but I am counting my penny’s so not for me right now.
Virgin Marula Oil
£34 for 15ml and a luxurious marula oil . This is pure no chemicals or fragrance. Brimming with antioxidants and omegas, it moisturises, rejuvenates and nourishes skin while restoring a gloriously youthful glow.
Do I love it yes
Would I buy it
Yes, but The Ordinary also do a Marula oil and it £8.25 for 30mls. So I am going to try that. After all that the price of a GnT! If I don’t love it I can apply it to my body then buy the Drunk Elephant oil. It was lovely but I am not ready to commit!
La La Retro Whip Moisturiser
£50 for 50mls
A blend of six rare African oils whipped into an airy cream, this all-purpose rescue moisturiser saves dull, dry skin by delivering a steady dose of moisture throughout the day and night. Your complexion will be left soft, supple and replenished.
The Drunk Elephant products were so good at hydrating my my skin that I didn’t think I needed this marvellous tub of whipped heaven.
Then the weather changed. It got colder and started raining. I had an upsetting incident that left me in tears for pretty much a week.
Apparently unhappiness can be very drying. It turns out I am also an emotional eater and ate lots of sugary bad things which dry out my skin. I needed a lot more hydration in my skin and reached for this moisturiser on more than one occasion.
I loved it. I didn’t need it my routine so I discarded it at first. Would I buy it again.
Yes, as soon as I run out I will be buying. This is something I look forward to using.
I like the fact it’s light enough for me to use day and night.
I love the ethos of this brand. It’s about cleanliness and healthiness for your skin.
Let’s just take a moment to appreciate the packaging. Absolutely gorgeous it is so Instagramable I love it.
Is it worth the money!
Most of it!
The samples worked out at £8 each I bought them with £15 off. I wish they introduced a European friendly SPF but I have been using my own La Roche Posey.
I would buy most of the products in this little set. The B Hydra I was looking forward to and is on my list. I want the Vitamin C Firma serum and the Whip.
I did love the other products but they may be on my plan b.
Drunk Elephant welcome to my skincare routine.
Have you tried the littles?
Which ones did you love?
