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

There is nothing wrong with this product, it's a perfectly fine facial oil. Why is it almost 10x the price of The Ordinary's facial oil that is just as good? Who knows! There is NO reason to spend this much on a facial oil. Save your money.

Skincare - Face - Drunk Elephant - C-Firma Day Serum

Feb/20/2018

This is so overpriced. The biggest problems with vitamin C serum are smell and feel on the skin—and this is no better than other high-concentration serums I've tried, despite costing a lot more. There is no getting around vitamin C feeling tacky and gross on the skin, apparently. If this felt better on the skin that similar cheaper serums it might be worth the $$. But it isn't so …Read more

Moisturizers - Drunk Elephant - Lala Retro Whipped Cream

Feb/20/2018

I received a mini version of this in the Hot Date value pack, and it's a great RICH moisturizer. I use it every few days as a moisture boost in the winter, since my skin gets dry and flaky really easily. I find this works best if I apply it over a very wet face (like, almost dripping) and allow the oils in the cream to trap in the water.

While I really enjoy this moisturizer and …

Cleansers - Drunk Elephant - Beste Jelly Cleanser

2.0

Feb/20/2018

I received a mini version of this as part of the Hot Date value set and I'm SO glad I didn't buy the full size product. I found this very stripping for my skin, which made serums "pull" on my skin more than when I use my normal cleanser. I was really surprised this was so harsh, since I already use a cleanser formulated for oily skin (CereVe foaming cleanser) and it's …Read more

Ugh, I hate that this is so good because it is SO expensive. But it really is amazing. I've been using it about a week and immediately noticed a difference in my skin texture. Even though I am in desperate need to exfoliation today, my skin looks plump and feels smooth and soft thanks to this moisturizer. My skin also looks youthful and glowy, despite not having used glycolic acid for about …Read more

I love whitening toothpastes but they didn't do much for me. The taste and feel of this toothpaste is ok, I didn't have a problem with foaming like some others. But I've been using it for a few weeks, with long brushings, and I have not noticed any whitening. I actually think Crest 3D white works a lot better than this toothpaste. I've noticed some very minor sensitivity and …Read more

Skincare - Body - Hawaiian Tropic - Dark Tanning Oil

This smells beyond amazing! I've always loved the classic coconut Hawaiian Tropic fragrance and this smells pretty strong (the more scent the better, at this for this scent!)

I don't really sunbathe, so I can't comment on that use. But because of the high mineral oil content this is a great occlusive to lock in moisture. I use the Hawaiian Tropic mango and cocoa butter …

Shampoo - John Frieda - Beach Blonde Cool Dip Purifying Shampoo

Jun/12/2015

**this review is for the re-released cool dip**

This a good "detox" shampoo with a really refreshing, pleasant scent. It's too harsh to use regularly on my curly, slightly dry hair due to the lack of moisturizing ingredients, but it's a great clarifying shampoo and it's also good to use after spending the day swimming at the cottage, when you really want your …

**this is a review of the re-released conditioner, not a review from an old original bottle**

I love this conditioner! I was a huge fan of the Beach Blonde line when it first came out and I'm so happy this conditioner is back! This makes my hair feel weightless but still very smooth, shiny and soft, even though it doesn't have a lot of "slip" when my hair is wet …

This is so pretty on my fair skin whether I have a tan or not. Applies flawlessly and it's pretty opaque in 1 coat, though it always looks better with 2.

This isn't the most unique color in the world but it's a fantastic summer staple. I'd recommend this over the many other hot pinks in my collection
