Reasonable, right? #DESays
"I’ve been going makeup-free quite a bit on this trip and I owe a large part of it to @drunkelephant’s #CFirma Day Serum! ✨ Not only does this vitamin C serum help with pigmentation, but also adds a slight glow to my face within seconds of applying it! Honestly, what more could I ask for?" - @glossipgirlblog #drunkinlove🐘⠀
“After a year long struggle with hormonal acne related to a new birth control, I have FINALLY found something that works. I have tried SOOOO many different products from @Sephora and also prescription creams from my doctor, but nothing seemed to help or just ended up making it worse. Literally after using this twice, I noticed a difference and after a couple weeks the cystic acne on my chin and consistent texture on my forehead is completely gone. I’ve always been a fan of #DrunkElephant products but since getting this I’ve purchased the entire line and it works amazing all together! Expensive, but totally worth it in my opinion.” - @admddmm #drunkinlove🐘 #APassioni⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Photo: @shedoesdesigns
"I’m not gonna lie—I’m a bit embarrassed by the talk about my skin, because it comes from a place of rehabilitation for me. This picture is my bare face. I mean, besides eyebrow pencil. Those are still growing back. 😂⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ During my postpartum depression, I stopped taking care of my body in so many ways. My hair, my skin, my teeth, everything was such a mess. For me, recovery and rehabilitation didn’t just include therapy, it required lots of doctors visits. I had chronic back pain. I had toothaches. And I had splotchy, poorly-maintained skin.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I went to the doctor for my checkup, and for my back. I went to the dentist—the dental work took over a week before I could even begin the @invisalign process. And, I spent some time scouring @heyaprill’s website, learning about skin care.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I saved my pennies, and started buying @drunkelephant products, one by one. I even slowed up on buying sneakers, y’all. I had to budget. 😂⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The #BHydra moisturizer, the #CFirma vitamin c serum, the #TLCFramboos night serum, the #APassioni retinol cream, the #Slaai face balm/wash, and the #VirginMarulaOil. They’re pricey, but virtually everything I’ve bought thus far—except the marula oil and the B-Hydra moisturizer— has lasted me about a year. Combined with a healthy diet and LOTS of water drinking, I don’t even get period pimples anymore.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I look at my face now, and it’s completely different—not just because of the weight loss, but because my skin has cleared up dramatically, my teeth are straighter (which has the potential to reshape your face in ways you aren’t prepared for), and my features are sharper. I don’t wear makeup because I’m still getting used to this version of my face without it, while still knowing that it could keep changing. But I’m okay with that, because I remind myself that the commitment isn’t to looking one particular way—it’s to promising to take care of my body correctly in whatever way it comes." - @bgg2wl

Welcome to #socialsunday🐘 (ask questions in the comments, our founder Tiffany Masterson might respond!): Q: How do I decide which of your 4 cleansers is right for me? I have combo skin sometimes acne-prone and am looking for one that will address my issues. ⠀ A: Hi! It’s really based on your own personal preferences. #PekeeBar, #JujuBar and #BesteNo9 are non-stripping cleansers that are pH balanced to be acidic (i.e. a pH level of <7.0), because that’s what’s good for skin. ⠀ Pekee is a creamy, super-mild + subtly moisturizing cleanser. Juju has the same base formula as Pekee, only with added clay and micro-fine bamboo powder for a gentle physical exfoliation experience. Beste is a lightweight gel with a little more cleansing oomph than Pekee or Juju. ⠀ #Slaai is our balm-to-oil that is meant to be used on dry skin first, and then once water is added, transforms to a milky texture that easily rinses away. (It’s so mild that it can be used by even those with a super sensitive eye area to remove any form of makeup.) Slaai supplies skin with lipids and skin-identical soothing ingredients, so it leaves skin healthier than how it found it. Bonus: It comes with the Bamboo Booster, which is a concentrated physical exfoliant that can be mixed in 1-2 mornings a week. ⠀ I say it all the time, but I think oftentimes the best way to tackle issues like yours is not to try and address or fix *with* ingredients, but first to adopt my philosophy of *avoiding* the ingredients that I believe are at the root of the issues in the first place #suspicious6 ). A cleanser’s job (and a very important one at that) is to get the stuff off your face that you don’t want sticking around, while leaving behind what you *do* want—your acid mantle and any residual emollients that keep your skin healthy, soothed and soft. I’d recommend that you follow up with a great leave-on serum that can gently exfoliate (TLC Framboos) to help prevent dead skin cell buildup and congestion. ⠀ Last tip: try skipping your morning cleanse, it can be a game-changer for people with oily or combination skin. ⠀ Photo: @makeupnskincarelover
"I thought it was about time I shared a #makeupfree #selfie.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As most of you all know I started reviewing @drunkelephant in December. What made me finally buy the brand was they released their #APassioni #retinol and it’s my favorite ingredient in skincare so I had to try. After I received everything I thought well since I have everything I need I would take #acleanbreak🐘 and solely use only #drunkelephant and see if using their products only would actually make a difference to my skin.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ After a week I started to see changes in my skin which I was super surprised at, because your skin needs longer to start seeing benefits, but it was more plump and healthy and glowing. It felt so soft to the touch, at this point I knew I loved the products and started buying everything in full size.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ After the 6 weeks my pigmentation had dramatically improved. The texture was no longer there and my skin looked healthy and glowy like I’ve never seen it before. I’ve always had a good skincare routine with great over the counter and medical products so I never really thought anything could change my skin to the level that it has.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My plan was to go back to dabbling with other skincare and still incorporating DE into my routine BUT because my skin changed so dramatically I sold all my other skincare other than masks. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My skin really likes the changes I made and I have the confidence now to #barewithus🐘" - @skinwithkirsti⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Want to be our next #barewithus🐘 beauty?
