I take pride in my independent way of thinking and prefer to call myself a leader rather than a follower. Unfortunately, being a beauty blogger I’ve become a follower at times and I’m ok with that. You see, there has been so much hype surrounding drunk elephant products that I had to follow all the hype and figure out for myself what all this madness was about.
I’m super happy I jumped on the Drunk Elephant hype, as I’ve become obsessed with these products. Since DE products are a bit on the pricey side ( I ain’t complaining, just stating a fact), I wanted to test them out before committing so I was elated when Sephora had these mini beauties as their birthday month gift.
Why not I thought. Give them a go!
So happy I did 🙂
The Best No.9 Jelly Cleanser ($40)
This cleanser earns 4.5 / 5 stars in my eyes. It’s a clear, non- bar cleanser that contains Marula oil so your skin feels soft, clean and not stripped of its natural oils. As well skin isn’t dry or itchy after use. It’s fragrance free and with water forms into a light foam. I always remove my eye makeup with makeup remover and then have to use a gentler cleanser on my eyes as I have sensitive eyes. With this cleanser, I still prefer to remove my eye makeup with makeup remover, but this time I use this cleanser around my eyes and it doesn’t irritate them. I don’t find this product removes eye makeup such as mascara very well, that’s why I gave it a 4.5 out of 5.
Still a fantastic product in my eyes!
Protini™Polypeptide Cream ( $84)
Protini is an anti-aging moisturizer that contain peptides and gets a rating of 5/5 from me! Peptides can reduce wrinkles, fine lines, uneven skin tone, and dullness. Marula oil is added to this amazing product to hydrate the skin. Those with dry and itchy skin will benefit a great deal from Marula oil as it seeps into your skin effortlessly and hydrates all day. Those with combo, oily and normal skin can also use Marula oil. It will not make you look greasy. Skin feels so soft and subtle after use. Protini™ is vegan and gluten-free.
From DE website:
In an independent consumer testing panel of 50 women age 25 to 55:
– 100% agreed their skin felt replenished and nourished
– 97% agreed their skin felt moisturized
– 97% agreed their skin texture felt soft and smooth
– 88% agreed their skin was strengthened
– 85% agreed their skin looked plumped and youthful
– 73% agreed their skin felt firmer and elastic
I definitely agree that my skin felt moisturized, nourished , plumped and firmer. These were my results with a 15ml bottle, I can’t wait to see the results after continuous use of a full bottle sized Protini™ anti-aging moisturizer.
I’m definitely happy I followed the hype. I wasn’t expecting these little mini samples to make an impact on my skin and my thoughts towards DE but they sure did and now I have a long list of DE products I need asap!
Next up on my DE ” to buy” list are the following:
