My love of skincare is no secret and when Drunk Elephant came to Sephora I was very excited to try it out. I am trying to move to “cleaner” beauty products so the brand was on my radar. From the end of May to the end of June I took the #CleanBreak challenge that goes along with The Littles Set. This challenge is to only use Drunk Elephant skincare products for 30 days to reset your skin since their products are made without what they call the Suspicious Six.
The really interesting concept to this is that since the products are made without silicones you can mix them all together in different combinations. Throughout the 30 days, I really grew to enjoy the new ease of my nighttime skincare. After I washed my face I would mix a pump of the TLC Glycolic Serum, the Virgin Marula Oil, and the LaLa Whipped Moisturizer all together in my hand and then put it on my face. Being able to mix them all together and have three skin care steps all done at once was amazing. They also worked so well together and my skin felt incredibly smooth every morning.
I am so glad that I tried this kit and was able to really try out almost every product in the Drunk Elephant range. Because of the price point, I really wanted to make sure I loved the products before I bought the full size and this kit was the perfect way to do that. After 30 days a few of the products really stood out to me and others I felt like I could live without. Below are the products I would purchase the full size of and that I think are great pieces to add into your skincare routine.
Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser
This is a great gentle cleanser that would work for all skin types. While it does remove makeup I prefer to use it as my second cleanser in my routine to make sure no makeup, sunscreen, or anything else is left on my face. I really enjoy using it with my Foreo to deep clean. It is pH balanced so it leaves your face feeling soft and ready for the next steps of your skincare routine!
T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Resurfacing Night Serum
This is the product I was most excited about in the kit because I had used it before. It’s a great serum to add to your nighttime skincare routine to help with uneven texture and dullness. This serum has 12% AHA/BHA to exfoliate your skin and make it look more radiant. I could see the difference in my skin after only a few uses and will definitely be purchasing the full size of this!
LaLa Retro Whipped Moisturizer
This moisturizer would be great for all skin types and has ceramides to help maintain your skin’s moisture. While there are other great moisturizers out there I love that this one can pair well with the other Drunk Elephant products so I can create the nighttime skincare “smoothie” I talked about above.
Virgin Marula Antioxidant Face Oil
I’ve talked about my love for face oils many times here on the blog so it should be no surprise that I loved the Marula oil. It is made from the marula fruit which contains large concentrations of antioxidants to help repair and protect your skin against free radicals. This oil is lightweight and would be good for any skin type.
