This Saved my Dry Skin 💜☔️
I am all about luxury skincare!! Boy oh boy does this cream scream luxury! From the rich oils, to the packaging, to the heavy whipped texture.. I AM OBSESSED. I recently switched to this cream for the winter months because where I am gets very dry. I already struggle w dry flaky skin and find it hard to find a moisturizer that can actually meet my needs. Yes this was on the pricier side for sure, but baby my skin is worth it. Will I be repurchasing - YES! This will strictly be a winter season product for me, but wow it’s amazing for my thirsty skin! I’m thinking of switching to protini in the summer months, anyone recommend it? *Disclaimer - I do not support Drunk Elephant in the ways they treat not only their staff, but also their customers.*
Hydration vs Moisturizing 💦
Despite water playing a major role in keeping our skin healthy, smooth & radiant, did you know there is actually a difference between moisturizing & hydration? They both ensure that our skin gets enough water to prevent dryness, dehydration, signs of aging, & environmental damage. It’s HOW moisturizers and hydrators accomplish this that makes the difference. 💜 Hydration focuses on the amount of water within your skin cells. Water within the skin cells is what results to having plumped skin with elasticity. When we apply a topical hydrator, we are infusing these skin cells with water to help improve the skin’s ability to absorb. 💦 On the flip side, moisturizing focuses on trapping and sealing in moisture from water. This helps build the skin’s protective barrier, prevent water loss & helps keep the skin soft and improves texture. 💦 So where does Lala Retro Whipped Cream fall? Lala is the perfect moisturizer as it locks in moisture and helps reinforce the skin’s acid mantel to protect the skin from environmental stressors. This moisturizer is perfect for the upcoming winter season to keep dry skin at bay as it is formulated with 6 African oils & a plant Ceramide complex. This cream moisturizer has a whipped texture that makes it light on the skin and helps absorb into the skin effortlessly. It never feels greasy, sticky or heavy. As with all of DE products, it is biocompatible so it is perfect to mix with your other DE favorites! My personal favorite combination is 1 pump Lala, 2 pumps B-Hydra, and 2 drops of Virgin Marula Oil for a quick nighttime routine. 💜 DRUNK ELEPHANT - Lala Retro Whipped Cream
The Trunk 4.0🎪🐘
🎪DRUNK ELEPHANT - The Trunk 4.0 This kit comes fully stocked with everything you need for a truly complete skincare routine & a swift getaway! 🛩☁️ I wouldn’t travel right now, even if you paid me. Covid numbers aren’t going down & I take these facts very seriously. Haven’t had contact with almost anyone since March, because I do have a neurological disease that could put me at risk. I can’t tell anyone what to do... but do I urge you to consciously protect strangers while protecting yourself & your loved ones. My condition is one often referred to as an “Invisible Illness”. Many people have health conditions that others don’t outrightly see. Most people think I’m completely able-bodied unless I’m seen limping or having convulsions. I’ve only had this condition since 2014, so it’s been an adjustment & learning experience for my own prejudgements as well. 🧳My bf really likes the Monos locking suitcase & encouraged me to purchase this while the big Sephora sale was going on. He has to travel for his essential-work sometimes & this is a perfect carry-on size! It’s just as wide & deep as the ‘Monos Carry-On’ ($293) & only 4” shorter. specs: 18” high x 14” wide x 9” deep. Monos describes their Carry-On as: Designed to comply with the size restrictions of as many airlines as possible, & fits in the overhead bin of nearly any flight. So I think this slightly shorter rolling suitcase would 99% likely be accepted as a carry-on. 💚Really impressed with the quality! Its lightweight but well structured, great features/compartments + an antibacterial laundry bag. I’m totally new to Drunk Elephant, but I wanted to try their L-Ascorbic Acid serum, Glycolic Acid serum & the Babyfacial🍼🐘 I also want to start using a gentle retinol. Those 4 products alone would have been $324! With my Rouge discount: $360! Regular price is $450- You get 10 full size products, 3 minis +5 sample packets. 18 different things to try! ➖Which would you like me to review first?➖ 🐘I want to trial everything before I review!

Lift + Firm body creme!
vinosculpt lift and firm body creme enriched with blend of grape polyphenols and firming iris extract which targets to firm, tighten and sculpt 4 key areas of the body. it is. delicately scented with an infusion of orange blossom. it feels so luxurious and so hydrating on the skin and the. whipped texture absorbs instantly. I have been using it for few months and excited to see the longer term results.
I have combination skin aka oily t-zone that’s fairly sensitive. I found this moisturizer on sale at Costco for $9.97, and I paid too much. I was really looking forward to trying this, however I wasn’t impressed at all. It had the consistency and feel of aloe, but it left my skin incredibly tacky to the touch. And despite it’s cold feel out of the jar it warms my face something terrible. So while it probably did hydrate my skin the cons just don’t make it worth it. I’m not a fan, and nope I sure won’t be repurchasing this.

My thoughts on this dreamy moisturizer ☁️☁️
I had been wanting to try this moisturizer for a long time because of how pretty it is! I finally purchased a variety pack of Herbivore products and this was included. I was very excited to try this product. I have normal to dry skin that can be somewhat sensitive sometimes. I was not super impressed by this moisturizer. The packaging and coloring is so cute, but the product itself was just ‘meh’ for me. After searching this product to include more details on this post, I could not find it anywhere! I am not sure if they discontinued producing it or what. But either way for $48, I do not recommend this moisturizer.HERBIVORE - PINK CLOUD Rosewater Moisture Creme

✨ The Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream from youth to the people the texture is so intriguing... like a fluffy pudding?? It looks dense, but it’s light as air and melts so easily into the skin. I’ve really been enjoying incorporating this into my rituals so far. I am not ready to review yet, but I couldn’t resist sharing this scrumptious texture! ✨ swipe to see the texture in action and quickly it absorbs into the skin.✨
High end highlighter ?!
Claims - Dewy , plump, dreamy skin ! My experience - Wonderful highlighter for a awful lot of money 💰 I definitely love the scent and the cream gel texture, it’s totally cooling on the skin, nice and fresh 🥰! Mad props !! It did leave a nice glowy finish on the skin making it “seem” healthy But after washing the face off the moisturizing goodness all goes away ☹️! I expected it to work on my skin making it truly hydrated. But it was rather a cosmetic cream that worked on the surface and made it all seem very nice! While it did nothing.. This is one of those products that really wanted it to work.. But sadly this doesn’t work for me ! Maybe I should try their water gel cream instead ? What are your thoughts ?

Bosses of SPF 😎
Seriously soothing SPF 30 day cream was sent to me and I’ve been trying this baby out over the weekend. 🌸About the product: This is a Spf 30 day cream for normal to sensitive skin. This cream caught my attention because it contains Blue Tansy & Niacinamide! This little baby is Mineral oil free and petroleum free. It helps prevent sunburn and decreases the risk of skin cancer and early skin aging caused by the sun. 🌸 My thoughts: I love the texture! It’s very light and absolutely no white cast! I like that you can’t feel that you applied anything to your skin, it’s THAT light! It doesn’t leave your skin oily or smelling like spf, which is one of the things I don’t look forward when using spf. I do have to say, it’s $18.99 for 1.7 ounces. I don’t know why spf are so small!! Even though you don’t need much but if you use it every day like myself you can go through a product like this pretty fast. I just really enjoy this and wish it was a larger tube. I will be repurchasing this once it’s over! ACURE - Seriously Soothing SPF 30 Day Cream
