Brand I Love: Drunk Elephant

I’ve used these 4 serums from Drunk Elephant for a month; and now I am ready to report back (cause skincare haul is just adding noises to the already too crowded world of information right?)

Let me put it out there first, I really really love Drunk Elephant, their product as well as the whole experience. They have these two sets of serums, one for the morning and one for the night. Each set has two serums that works perfectly together. This solves the dilemma I constantly face when trying out new brand: what’s the starting point!

Drunk Elephant is a clean brand, with only non-toxic, potent ingredients. The products and ingredients they use are nothing new; but they feel so much more gentle on skin compare to other similar ones I’ve tried. Any one with sensitive skins would love Drunk Elephant. And they are offering 20% sitewide right now!

Morning

You should use each two serums together, the B-Hydra counteract the stickyness of C-Firma.

B-Hydra™ Intensive Hydration Gel: It has a gel texture and is really light-weight and absorbed quickly by the skin; especially suitable for morning time under makeup.

C-Firma™ Day Serum: It feels slightly sticky as most C-firma serums, but the B-Hydra contracts the stickyness. I use it on my whole face, and it works wonders for my acne scarring as well as my whole complexion.

Night

Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil:  A little bit too thick for my liking, so a little goes a long way. It is really hydrating, I usually add a light moisturizer on top of this and my skin becomes plumped and radiaint the next day. This is the purest of pure oil, the ingredient list only contains one ingredient: Sclerocarya Birrea (Marula) Seed Oil.

T.L.C. Framboos™: This is my favorite among the four serums. Surprisingly, it feels like nothing on the skin, no stingy or harsh feel that usually comes from glycolic and lactic acids. It’s similar to the Sunday Riley Good Genes, maybe even better.

Born and raised in China; went to to NYU for College and going to Columbia Business School for Marketing Degree this fall. I have worked in the beauty industry for a year after graduating from college. But my obsession with beauty starts since high school, when I suffered from acnes. That being said, I have tried out a lot of skincare products as well as makeup and I have a lot of opinions on them (also high standards). I hope this is the place you can visit from time to time to find beauty inspirations or just to kill time :)
