Sunscreen -Drunk Elephant -Umbra Sheer Physical Defense SPF 30

on 5/22/2018 10:38:00 AM


I have been using the Drunk Elephant Umbra Tinte Sunscreen for about a year before I had a chance to try out the Drunk Elephant Umbra Sheer Sunscreen. The Drunk Elephant Umbra Sheer Physical Defense has an SPF of 30, which the gold standard level for daily use. This features a mineral or physical sunscreen with 20% Zinc Oxide. If you have very sensitive skin usually it is better to use a mineral sunscreen as opposed to a chemical sunscreen. I like that the Umbra Sheer Sunscreen is fragrance free (like all Drunk Elephant products). It does have a very very slight white cast, but not nearly as much as other mineral sunscreens. I notice much less of a white cast with the DE Umbra Tinte Sunscreen than with this one. This sunscreen works well with my dry skin and works great under my foundations and makeup. Overall, I still prefer the Umbra Tinte Sunscreen, but if you don't like that sunscreen the Umbra Sheer Sunscreen is well worth a try. My video review can be seen here:

Skincare - Face -Drunk Elephant -Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil


I got a deluxe sample of this a while back. I frequently try out new skincare items, so it's common if I'm not impressed by a product to simply move on to the next. I used this to the last drop and was sad when I used my deluxe sample all up. This is very hydrating and does not break out my senstive skin. I really loved the hydration this gave my dry skin. I will def be buying another. A large size or another deluxe, I don't know yet, but I do know I want more of it. :)

Treatments (Eye) -Drunk Elephant -Shaba Eye Complex

on 5/18/2018 12:42:00 PM

I finally purchased my second bottle of the Drunk Elephant Shaba Complex Eye Serum and it is an eye treatment that I really do love. This does a great job of hydrating the sensitive skin on my eye lids and all around the eye area. I love that you can use this on the entire eye area including the lids, under the eye, and all around the orbital bone. Since this is fragrance free it makes it great for my sensitive eyes- I wear contacts and any eye creams that have too much fragrance or alcohol can really make my eyes burn and hurt and the Shaba Eye Serum doesn't ever do that. It is a little pricey but a little goes a long way and since it is packaged in a manner that protects the serum from air and light you can get a lot of use of it over the course of several months.

Skincare - Face -Drunk Elephant -The Littles Kit

on 5/13/2018 2:52:00 PM


I picked up this kit in the latest Sephora VIB sale which made it somewhat worth the splurge since it is already marked down as a value kit, the extra %age off was the push I needed to purchase it. The kit contains 8 products with the cutest color-coded packaging I’ve seen in a long time and I’ve tried them all as follows:

1. Beste™ No. 9 Jelly Cleanser: it’s okay, nothing mind blowing and not something I’d rush out to buy. I know the ingredient list is free from top allergens but this was actually left my skin feeling dry and tight. This is a pass for me.

2. Shaba Complex™ Eye Serum: again, it’s okay, but on the thin side, very much like a light lotion. Personally, I prefer a thicker formula although there is nothing technically wrong with this product.

3. C-Firma™ Day Serum: directions suggest mixing this with the B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Gel, which I did. I like vitamin-C serums and this one is no exception. It is a pale yellow/orange translucent liquid. One pump mixed with one pump of the B-Hydra gel is enough to cover your entire face and neck.

4. B-Hydra™ Intensive Hydration Gel: To be honest... this doesn’t feel all that hydrating to me as my skin felt pretty tight all day after applying this.

5. Umbra Sheer™ Physical Daily Defense SPF 30: The sunscreen dries down to a nice matte finish and leaves no trace of the white cast seen when applying it. This is a great product if worn alone without makeup overtop of it but it’s a hot mess under makeup.

6. T.L.C. Framboos™ Glycolic Night Serum: I mixed this with the Marula Oil as recommended and I did not experience any itching, tingling or other irritation. It has a slightly higher concentration than my usual glycolic acid formula and I did notice dryness around my nose each morning following use of this. There was no difference in the texture of my skin so I’d stick with my preferred glycolic acid over this one.

7. Lala Retro™ Whipped Cream: I actually really like this cream. The texture is thick and bouncy, not like whipped cream but really nice just the same. Probably one of my favorite products in the kit.

8. Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil: The marula oil is the best of the bunch. I mixed it with both the Glycolic Night Serum and also the Lala Retro Whipped Cream as well as using it on his own and it’s a great facial oil in it’s own right.

Final thoughts... if you are interested in DE products, this is a good starter or sampler kit before parting with a heck of a lot of cash for any one individual product. These are expensive and I’m not convinced they are worth the price. Out of the 8, only 3 impressed me and none were enough to prompt a full-size purchase. It might be the fact that I have dry skin so please get samples and/or test out this kit for yourself if you are interested. This was just my experience and my opinion. Hope it helps.

Moisturizers -Drunk Elephant -Lala Retro Whipped Cream

on 5/8/2018 10:34:00 PM


I had used Protini cream for a while and found it very drying. It is supposed to be miraculous but it wasn't for my skin. I expected Lala cream to be very rich and more suitable for dry skin, and decided to use my Sephora gift card on it and give it a chance. It's OK but it just seems like an ordinary cream, except without the chemicals all the rest of them have. The Drunk Elephant products are full of awesome nutrients for the skin. I just have not seen them make a difference in my face. The fact is, there are two richer creams that I have found, without silicones or toxins. One is Jergens all purpose face cream, and the other is Jouviance 3 in 1 in a pump bottle. I do appreciate the admirable philosophy and the effort that goes into Drunk Elephant face products, but so far they are just not doing a great job for my particular dry skin. By the way, I don't see why she calls it a retro cream. If it were a retro cream it would be pink and highly fragranced and a lot greasier. That's what they did in the fifties. Jergens is a retro cream. I still rate Lala cream as good because of the lack of silicones and other chemicals, and it is a pretty good moisturizer.
