Drunk Elephant Review – Is it really worth the price?

After reading numerous reviews about Drunk Elephant, I decided to take the plunge and order a set of the Littles. The Littles package includes a travel bag filled with travel-sizes of their best and most popular products. This is a great way to test out the products and see what works for you before investing in the bigger sizes. Drunk Elephant roots themselves on tackling the “Suspicious 6” skin issues (essential oils, fragrance/dyes, silicone, sodium lauryl sulfate, drying alcohols and chemical screens) and caters to all skin types. Drunk Elephant consists of cruelty-free and natural products, which means it comes with a hefty price-tag. So again, this was a great way to learn about the products and see if it’s really worth it.

Below are a list of the products and my quick thoughts about each.

Beste No 9 Jelly Cleanser – I really enjoyed using this! It wasn’t harsh or drying at all. The suggested use is to only use this at night (no need for a morning wash). I wouldn’t use this to take off my makeup, but definitely afterwards. Usually I use a makeup cleansing wipe first, then I would go ahead and use this stuff.

C-Firma Day Serum – They suggest to use this in the morning, on clean and dry face, neck, chest, and back of hands. To be honest, I’m not exactly sure if this made any difference or not. Just seemed like another step in their process.

B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum – Just like the day serum, you can basically slap this stuff wherever needs hydration. You can easily mix this with another other lotion or oil. When I did use this alone, I noticed how hydrating it actually was.

T.L.C Framboos Glycolic Night Serum – After washing your face at night, they recommend mixing this with the Marula Oil for maximum effectiveness. I did experience some tingling (which is common) but that quickly resided. Similar to the C-Firma serum, I’m not sure if this product made any difference.

Shaba Complex Eye Serum – I’ll be honest, I don’t use eye creams. Don’t judge me! I’ve bought and tried them, but I just haven’t found one that really worked. Luckily I don’t suffer from major bags or dark circles (yet) so I still have time to be on the lookout. This eye serum felt nice around my eyes, but again, no difference.

Umbra Sheer Physical Daily Defense SPF 30 – Typically I like to find a day cream/moisturizer that has spf in it so I most likely would not this. I did mix this with the C-Firma a few times and it was refreshing.

Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil – I used 2-3 drops of this at night and my skin really absorbed the oil. I’m not sure if it’s worth the price tag itself, but in a kit like this, it was probably the most used product.

Lala Retro Whipped Cream – This is a thick cream. But if you have dry skin, like myself, your skin will thank you. I used this product mostly at night, but a few times in the morning. My skin felt so nourished after using this stuff. I would definitely buy this product again.

Overall, I don’t think I’d stick to this regimen. These products range well over $50 to $100 bucks, and I personally just can’t justify spending that much for okayish products. But everybody’s skin reacts differently, so what works for me might not work for you. And vice versa! That’s the beauty of finding a skincare regimen, everyone’s is different.
