DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Resurfacing Night Serum
What it is- an AHA/BHA night serum that resurfaces skin by lifting dead skin cells to improve texture, fine lines, wrinkles, and pores Good for any skin type! I have dry skin, my main concerns are anti aging, clearing out closed comodones, and smoothing texture. I’ve been using this product for over a year now and I am on my third repurchase. I truly think this is a product that I will use for life at this point. My skin never gets irritated with it like other glycolic acid serums I’ve used. It’s been gentle yet effective. When used on areas I’ve broken out I notice quicker healing and less severe of a pimple. It’s pricy at 90$ for 30ml but that size bottle lasted me 6-7 months.

Is this $125 Detox Night Cream Worth It?
Hey Cherie Fam 🍒 I have been doing makeup looks and raving about my recent make up purchases lately. I thought it’s time to give the skin care products I’ve been loving lately some attention. You know that you can’t have great makeup unless you have great a great makeup base aka having a great skin care routine. I received Grown Alchemist Detox Night Cream on my November premium box from Boxycharm. I have a somewhat strict skin care routine and I am skeptical introducing a new product to my routine. I researched this brand thoroughly and read hundreds of reviews online. I also examined the ingredient list. Grown Alchemist is founded by brothers who discovered ground breaking research that proved the continuous use of natural ingredients. They developed formulas with a unique synergy between biology and cosmetic chemistry. Their headquarters are located in Melbourne, Australia. (Source: website) The detox night cream is described as a detoxifying cream formulated with peptide-3, echinacea vitamins, hyaluronic acid and essential omega fatty acids such as reishi extract. This product claims to regenerate the skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines + wrinkles resulting in radiant and youthful looking skin. This product retails for $125 USD for 40ml. #Grown Alchemist - Detox Night Cream[products]# I actually really like this product. I use it with my DE framboos and The Ordinary virgin marula oil at night. I noticed my skin is a lot more glowy and I have less pores and brighter skin when I wake up in the morning. It has a thick consistency, but doesn’t feel heavy and has a scent similar to roses. I am actually not a fan of the smell because I prefer no fragrance. I think this is the perfect night cream especially during the winter months. However, I will not be repurchasing when I run out. While I am a fan of this product and think it works well, I don’t think it’s worth $125 for a 40ml. There are cheaper alternatives in the market with the same ingredients. If money isn’t an issue to you, then I say go for it! I saw a huge difference within a week. It’s just not in my budget unfortunately. DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Resurfacing Night Serum The Ordinary - 100% Cold Pressed Virgin Marula Oil Conclusion: Great product and I saw a difference within a week, but it’s too pricy and will not re-purchase because there are alternative brands in the market with the same ingredients for a fraction of the price. Xoxo, Francesca 💋

About 4 months ago I tried C-F
About 4 months ago I tried C-Firma by drunkelephant for the first time. Personally, I didn’t like it too much. I was new to skin care and didn’t understand how vitamin c worked or what the consistency tends to be like. So I decided not to move forward with it. I tried other products, but none of them really stuck (pun intended). Then I had a terrible period of hormonal and cystic acne and guys, my scarring is SO BAD 😭 So I reverted back to this. I appreciate it so much more now. 🔸This contains the purest form of vitamin c, ascorbic acid plus ferulic acid and vitamin E. This will help with signs of aging, brighten & firm your skin and protect it from free radicals and environmental stressors. 🔸Containing pumpkin ferment and pomegranate extract to help with the look of pores, and is rich with antioxidants like indian gooseberry, grape juice and chronocyclin (mimics vitamin D benefits). Lastly, sodium hyaluronate crosspolymer which has a smaller molecular weight than hyaluronic acid and makes it easier for it to penetrate the skin and lock in moisture. 🔸This product is sticky, yes. Some people don’t like that but I honestly can’t deny how beneficial this product is. I haven’t been able to find a vitamin C product as effective as this. If it is too sticky, apply it at night instead of morning! Quite honestly, I haven’t found a brand that overall is as effective as drunkelephant. It is really noticeable when you try new products and see the difference and lack of effectiveness compared to when using DE. I will forever be recommending this product to everyone! ✨Last note✨ Because it has l-ascorbic acid, it is best when fresh, so don’t stock up! Xo 💗💫

Acne’s Worst Nightmare
Acne’s Worst Nightmare
I wanted to share a product I’m so thankful for. #Apassioni is a retinol that has been working well for me to keep my skin flat and soft! It’s helping clean up my scarring and prevent acne and will hopefully keep me looking youthful by preventing wrinkles. I love the smell of this stuff so much so I actually get so excited when I get to use it! The packaging is a little annoying, but if you make sure to only squeeze from the top you should be good. You only need a pea size amount for the whole face and it’s best used with lots of moisture after as your skin can dry out from the cell regeneration. Retinol works from the deeper layers up so its always a process to see results! I’m hoping my skin keeps getting more and more clear the longer I use this. I suggest starting out slow with 1-2x a week and then increase to every other day. I am using #tlcFramboos for surface exfoliation in rotation with this. It’s what really works on my acne which I can’t seem to shake. DRUNK ELEPHANT - A-Passioni Retinol Cream

My HG vitamin C serum
My HG vitamin C serum
I have always been super sensitive of vitamin c serum and this was probably the first thing I tried which worked for my skin after few uses. . The very first time I used this, I broke out. I gave couple days break and used again but it still broke me out. Fast forward two weeks, I gave a try again and I still broke out but I just couldn't give up on this so i used each day tiny bit of it mixed with #bhydra and honestly I never broke out after that. Probably my skin was getting used to vitamin c for the first time so initial purging I guess. .This is a potent 15% L-ascorbic acid and it helps in brightening and firming the skin tone. This is formulated with pumpkin ferment extract, ferulic acid and other fruit enzymes. The smell of this is kinda weird and more like a burnt orange but honestly I don't care about that because the product gives such good results and the smell goes away in few mins. Also the texture is kinda sticky and I know some people don't like it but honestly I don't mind a sticky or a tacky texture. It does sure get difficult to apply but most of the times I apply this on its own and I feel the sticky tacky consistency.I do mix it with #bhydra sometimes and with that it glides on skin very smoothly. .This have faded my acne marks so rapidly. I had too much of marks on my forehead and chin because of my acne and this helped quickly fade them away and it still does. This is my HG vitamin c serum and no matter how many I use I always get back to this because it shows such quick results on my skin. The price of this retails at $80 for 1oz.

I know there are many of you who like the DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Resurfacing Night Serum a lot, but for me it is only ⭐️. My skin has never been irritated like this! I had several break outs on my chin days before, and I thought maybe using this night serum which contains AHA/BHA may help with my skin problems. TBH I seldom use acid peels to treat acne before and I have no clue about the side effects about it (okay maybe it’s not this little buddy’s fault). But I thought maybe hype is real, maybe I should give a try and get rid of the annoying ichy acnes. At first everything looked perfect, there were only acne scars left on my chin and my skin looked so smooth and radiant. But the next day was when the nightmare began, I felt so itchy while applying theDRUNK ELEPHANT - B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum 😭😭😭 , and swipe left you can see how my skin looks now. I personally think this product may not be the right acid peel/night serum for sensitive skin (or anyone who need barrier protection). For me it’s the one that I want to say ’I would rather get coal than using this’.

⁣drunkelephant products are amazing, but this one in particular has significantly brightened my skin and helped my hormonal acne scars simmer down. This is the one thing I used religiously everyday ⁣Yes some may find it sticky as I did at first, but it dries pretty quickly. Once I religiously started using it I saw results. Also- I mix it with B-hydra almost everyday which really helps the consistency to rub in better and easier ✨⁣

I’m sure you all have seen the
I’m sure you all have seen these 2 infamous products from drunkelephant. TLC Framboos Glycolic Night Serum This product is an AHA/BHA blend that works overnight to smooth your complexion to reveal radiant skin by morning. And let me tell you - that’s exactly what it does. AHA/BHAs are something that I find so essential in any skincare routine. Basically, these groups contain acids such as glycolic, lactic, tartaric, citric & salicylic acids. I know the word acid sounds so scary to put on your face, but I promise they’re so beneficial! These acids work through a process known as chemical exfoliation. I’m sure many of you have heard of exfoliation, but most people think about exfoliation as using harsh scrubs against your skin which can actually be more detrimental than beneficial. Personally, I only ever exfoliate chemically, because I find it to be much less harsh to my skin surface. AHA/BHAs work at the cellular level to disrupt the chemical bonds that allow dead skin cells to hold on to the surface. Without chemical exfoliation, dead skin cells can build up on your face and cause small bumps & breakouts, which is why it’s essential to use acids that lift these cells away so we never have anything but glowing, healthy skin. C-Firma Day Serum When it comes to vitamin C, the benefits of having it in your skincare routine are insane. This serum is packed with a potent antioxidant complex including 15% l-ascorbic acid. This works to counteract the effects of free radicals in your skin over time. Free radicals buildup in the skin as a result of sun damage, so it’s essential to incorporate a product that can combat these aggressors to keep skin looking healthy and young. Since incorporating this product into my routine, almost all of my acne scars & sun spots have completely faded. I will forever repurchase this product!
