Drunk Elephant Slaai Is Amazing!

DRUNK ELEPHANT - Slaai Makeup-Melting Butter Cleanser
begins like the mini in the back: solid, smooth, like a freshly-opened container of butter. Then, you scoop some out, and as you use it you slowly soften it further and further. The texture is like butter in that the solid balm melts to a viscous oil as the warmth from your hands encourages all those oils to liquify. But texture is where the similarities to butter end. With five HG African seed oils and three fruit seed oils: no animal fats here! Cranberry, açaí, watermelon, baobab, kalahari melon, mongongo, ximenia, and -of course- marula oils all nourish your skin as you’re gently rubbing this balm into your skin, penetrating through layers of oil, makeup, and grime without the help do surfactants. It makes it such a gentle cleanser! I imagine some of the African oils are from fruit seeds, but Drunk Elephant separates them in the product description so I shall as well 🍉🍈 This is the only balm cleanser I’ll use, as it’s the only one that doesn’t leave a palpable residue on my cheeks. It doesn’t make me oily, an achievement for such a nourishing blend! This balm is very gentle, not even irritating my eyes whenever it gets into them from overly-enthusiastic mascara removal, and doesn’t leave a film over my eyes. It soothes any angry blemishes very nicely, thanks to the added moisture and lack of surfactants that might irritate the already-inflamed skin. Overall? My HG cleansing balm 🙌🏽

drunk elephant review with fungal acne🐘💗
as someone with fungal acne, buying the same products can be reaaallyyy boring. so this is my review of drunk elephant as someone with fungal acne!! * disclaimer, NONE of these products are fungal acne safe!! use at your own risk * DRUNK ELEPHANT - Slaai Makeup-Melting Butter Cleanser this cleansing balm doesn’t really emulsify when you activate it with water, leaving a really oily feeling😕 and doesn’t remove all my makeup DRUNK ELEPHANT - Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser Deluxe Sample this is a really nice gentle foaming cleanser... and thats pretty much it. DRUNK ELEPHANT - B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum i love this serum! its a lovely gel serum that absorbs in quickly and is greak at oil control DRUNK ELEPHANT - C-Firma Vitamin C Day Serum this serum is a little tricky, i haven’t really noticed a difference in my skin in terms if brightness, i do have a bit of dark spots and they haven’t budged. not to mention this formulation is a rip off of the SKINCEUTICALS - C E Ferulic With 15% L-Ascorbic Acid Vitamin C Serum  DRUNK ELEPHANT - Lala Retro Whipped Cream this is a thicc moisturizer that surprisingly doesn’t leave my oily skin looking greasy af. its a good moisturizer for dry combo skin!  DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Cream this moisturizer feels exactly like the lala retro... its just 8 dollars more expensive DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial Mask this mask burns so bad the first 20 seconds but then it settles down. i really havent seen a difference in my skin so DRUNK ELEPHANT - Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil ive only used this oil a few times but wow it really makes your skin feel super soft and dewy DRUNK ELEPHANT - Lippe Balm DRUNK ELEPHANT - Lippe Balm i love this lip balm but its 16 dollars and the claim are completely false! in conclusion, i wont be repurchasing anymore of drunk elephant products because in reality they are just good products... nothing too special ESPECIALLY for the price. they aslo didn’t want to provide information about the percentage of black employees during the Pull Up Or Shut Up movement so yeah. their aesthetic is cute but ive grown out of this phase 😀 like and save!! xo melanie

Skincare 101: Double-Cleansing
Bar soaps and scrubs have been phased out of popularity, replaced with cleansers that use gentler sulfates than potentially-problematic SLS/SLES and double-cleansing has seen a rise. Grime, layers of sunscreen, heavy makeup... I recommend double-cleansing if you apply more than one layer of sunscreen or wear makeup, it’s helped so much with my own congestion/blackheads! Wash twice with a water-based cleanser if you prefer to be utilitarian, or try a micellar water if you don’t like oil textures. • 𝗙𝗶𝗿𝘀𝘁 𝗖𝗹𝗲𝗮𝗻𝘀𝗲: For me, traditional double-cleansing is the way to go. Oil-based cleansers easily break down stubborn makeup like waterproof mascara and I’m careful to avoid sensitizing essential oils. My top pick for quality to quantity to cost? THE inkey LIST - Oat Cleansing Balm . $10 for 150mL of a sensitive skin-friendly balm is hard to beat! Another good budget option is The Ordinary - Squalane Cleanser , $7.90 for 50mL or $19.90 for 150mL. Its thick texture takes a bit more work to emulsify and rinse away, but gets the job done. DRUNK ELEPHANT - Slaai Makeup-Melting Butter Cleanser is a great balm that I love for its easy emulsification and quick rinse, though it’s a bit more pricy- $34 for 110g. Harder to swallow the cost when you rinse it after just a minute of it on your skin, but it emulsifies so well and rinses clean easily. HOLI FROG - Kissimmee Vitamin F Therapy Balmy Wash is also kinda pricy, $42 for 74mL. It is hard to emulsify, but leaves my skin as soft as if I had moisturized after rinsing, making it luscious but hard to justify. • 𝗦𝗲𝗰𝗼𝗻𝗱 𝗖𝗹𝗲𝗮𝗻𝘀𝗲: For my 2nd Cleanse, I reach for a water-based cleanser with a pH of 4-7 and hydrating humectants. I avoid essential oils and fragrance. My absolute favourite 2nd Cleanse is rPAULA'S CHOICE - RESIST Perfectly Balanced Foaming Cleanser ($19 per 190mL, pH 6.2-7), a silky cream-to-foam that removes any 1st Cleanse residue without stripping skin. Another gentle and effective cleanser is the HOLI FROG - Superior Omega Nutritive Gel Wash ($36 per 150mL, pH 5.5). Both are great for any skin type, esp. drier skin! Oily/combo skin types will enjoy the deep-cleansing, strongly lathering gels of rCeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin ($11 per 355mL, pH 5.5) and #Drunk Elephant - Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser[products]#[FourStars] ($32 per 150mL, pH 5.5). I wouldn’t use them more than once per day since they can leave skin feeling tight if overused. How To Use A Balm Cleanser: 1. Dispense balm onto dry, clean palms. 2. Massage balm onto dry, uncleansed skin, for as long as you like. I wouldn’t go over a minute since you’ll be massaging your skin more in a sec... 3. Wet hands. 4. Emulsify the product on your face using a small amount of water, massaging until it is almost like a lather. 5. Rinse face. 6. Repeat steps 4 + 5 until your face feels clean and soft, with no visible milkiness/lather.

Slaai The Day Away 🐘
Slaai The Day Away 🐘
The product: The Slaai makeup-melting butter cleanser is a rich oil infused cleanser that is designed to remove all traces of dirt, makeup, and any other products on your skin, while gently exfoliating your skin for a better complexion! 🐘 Slaai is also cruelty-free, which is just a bonus. 🌱 My impressions: The Drunk Elephant rich oil makeup remover is a very oily product, and as I am not one too flaunt over oily products, Slaai is NOT my go-to remover! I hate having to deal with the oils afterwards as it becomes such a hassle and such a long process. Although it did work well and there were no issues with the product itself, it would be a better use to be a ‘shower’ makeup remover, as the whole process would be much simpler. The product itself essentially melts in your palm, which I find so cool, and the scent was rather buttery and bland which I did like, and there was also tons of product within the container! You really do get a bang for your buck. If you prefer oilier products to help wash away the day, Slaai would be the makeup-melter for you! ✨ How it works on combination skin: As this product is already extremely oily, it does not cause any dryness, but at times it does over hydrate the skin. Natural oilers are not stripped either! Slaai did not cause any hyperpigmentation or blemishes, and only had overall positive results! 💚 Skin type for Slaai: 🙌🏼 Normal 🙌🏼 Combination 🙌🏼 Dry Length of Use: 2 months! Cost: $45 / 110 G Target Areas: Dryness 🎯 Recommend: The Slaai makeup-melter is a great option for makeup removal if you prefer an oil based product and it does the job quite well. If this sounds like your cup of tea, I recommend this product, but if not, you can definitely find a great dupe that is not oil based. Overall Rating: My overall rating is that it really does ‘Slaai The Day Away!’ It does what is instructed and designed today and the oil issue is just a personal preference. However, I do love the scent and design. ⭐️ DRUNK ELEPHANT - Slaai Makeup-Melting Butter Cleanser

I’ve been waiting to finish so
I’ve been waiting to finish some other cleansers before starting the krave beauty matcha hemp cleanser and finally was able to! I’ve been traveling a lot lately so wasn’t using it consistently. Since I’ve been back this week I’ve been using it every night, and I’m happy to say I love this cleanser as much as I was hoping I would! My skin feels clean and nourished after using it, but not ped at all. If you’ve been debating getting this one, do it!!💚

Summer Fridays Super Amino Gel Cleanser
Summer Fridays Super Amino Gel Cleanser
I have been testing out the @summerfridays Super Amino Gel cleanser ($38) for about 3 weeks. I have heard mixed reviews on this cleanser so I decided to give it a try. - - I’m a huge fan of the mint green and glass packaging. It has a light citrusy scent, which I do not mind at all. The cleanser is cruelty free and the packaging is recyclable.♻️ - - This is now my new favorite cleanser! This is a cleanser that I will repurchase over and over. I never thought high end cleanser were worth it, but this cleanser is really worth every dollar. It’s a gel cleanser it’s very hydrating and very gently. I personally prefer gel or cream cleansers over foaming cleansers. I use this at night as my second cleanse in my double cleansing routine. It helps pick up any leftover makeup and oil that the my oil cleanser didn’t, while being gentle. I use about 2 pumps every night. This product contains 11 different amino acids. Amino acids in cleansers help to rebuild your skin barrier and keeping your skin healthy. Amino acids are the building blocks of collagen, which basically put skin. Which keeps the skin nice and plump.
