Anyone who knows me is aware of my obsession with vitamin C serums. I’ve tried the best the business – from Kiehl’s to Obagi and Skinceuticals. I thought I had seen it all, but I wasn’t prepared for the transformational effects of the Drunk Elephant C Firma Day Serum.
Vitamin C serums can be a bit drying but not this one. The addition of virgin marula oil and sodium hyaluronate (to draw moisture into the skin), keeps skin plump and hydrated. The serum contains 15% vitamin C, with vitamin E, D and a whole truckload of other antioxidants. Within a couple of uses I could see that my skin looked more bright and glowing. What’s more (like the Skinceuticals C+E Ferulic) this serum also stays on the skin for 72 hours. Still, I use everyday because, well, why not?
When you combine this with the Drunk Elephant Framboos Glycolic Night Serum, the the results are phenomenal. I’m talking clear, poreless, radiant skin. The night serum contains 12% AHA complex, which includes glycolic, tartaric, lactic and salicylic acid. This means that not only does it gently exfoliate your skin, it also clears blackheads, reduces breakouts, redness, and pigmentation. I use it two nights a week and it works. Just wear sunscreen in the day when you’re using anything with acids.
The best part about Drunk Elephant range is not just the efficacy of products but also that they’re paraben, phthalate, SLS, dye, synthetic chemicals, formaldehyde, lanolin, alcohol…basically completely toxin-free. What’s not to love?
