I discovered Drunk Elephant Skincare about a year ago and I’ve been in love ever since.
I still haven’t sampled the entire range, but the ones I’ve tried have been impressive. C-Firma Day Serum, the Lippe and Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil have knocked off any other skin serum/oil I’ve ever sampled.
You wear the C-Firma during the day under makeup/moisturiser with SPF for added protection, and the marula oil is perfect for night-time hydration. Unlike most oil-type moisturisers, marula doesn’t make me break out either. I’m not exactly sure why, I should probably research this one a little further, but I remember reading something along the lines of it being rich in essential fatty acids which mimic those naturally occurring in our skin. Whatever the reason, it hasn’t resulted in giant, protruding bumps emerging from my face and that makes me happy!!!!! Hehehe. It does result in me waking up fresh faced, which makes me JUST as deliriously thrilled 🙂 🙂 🙂
The Lippe comes in the cutest little tube, which as we all know packaging is 100% essential in beauty products. If your name is Mel it is anyhow he he. So I put this little guy on at night time right before bed and I wake up with smooth lips. Magic!
The only downside? l’m still stuck in the last century and online shopping isn’t a serious forte of mine (I still enjoy the act of purchasing on the spot -who wants to wait??! And enjoying the physical shopping experience), however, I am forced to make an exception for this line as they’re too good to pass up… though a little on the pricey side.
Oh, and as a side note; marula can be used on hair, nails and anywhere else on the body.
And if you aren’t convinced yet I don’t know what else to tell you! There’s a bunch of other products you can check out as well, but for now I’m happy with my three favourites.
