This month the products that I’ve been absolutely loving are: 💚 la mer - The Cleansing Oil. - This has pretty much been a ride or die product for me, since discovering it it’s been a staple in my routine, I’ve tried other products but always come back because nothing compares. - It dissolves make up and spf in quick time and it’s super nourish on the skin as well. . 💚 la prairie - Cellular Cleansing Water. - I’ve used this cleanser for years now and I use it in the morning to freshen up my skin. I personally don’t feel I need a full cleanse in the morning so this is enough to remove anything on the surface and leaves my skin hydrated and ready for the next steps. . 💚 drunk elephant - LaLa Retro Whipped Cream. - I have absolutely been loving this cream. The texture feels amazing it’s so fluffy, doesn’t clog my pores and is amazing when using acids and retinol. - When I apply this it absorbs almost instantly and leaves me with a gorgeous glow and keeps me hydrated all day long. 💚 drunk elephant - A-Passioni. - Now I have tried a lot of Retinols but this one seriously has impressed me so far. It’s only been a month so not all results are evident but it has definitely helped reduce pigmentation that I had on my cheeks. I’m impressed I’ve seen results already because I’m still not up to daily usage yet. So I’m hoping that once I’ve built up tolerance to that I’ll see faster results. . 💚 drunk elephant - Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil. - I’m super fussy with oils but this one is so amazing at hydrating, what I like is that it’s not too heavy, you can use this and look dewy rather than oily. I use both am and pm and it’s never clogged my pores. . 💚 chanel - CoCo Mademoiselle. - Nothing to say other than it’s my fav scent.

Quarantine Cleansing | Day 14 ☹️
Hi everyone! I hope you are all healthy and well ❤️ This is a crazy time in our lives and the history of our world. I’ve been in self isolation since my university sent us home two weeks ago. FIVE PEOPLE have tested POSITIVE FOR COVID 19 at my school. Since I’m around the mark that it’s okay to call safe and I feel good, I think I’m finally in the clear after all this time 🥳 I’ve been doing a couple things to take my mind off of everything Step 1: Cleaning😇 DYI Skincare Tip: This is some of my makeup and skincare collection!! I have so much and honestly it’s taking up an entire drawer in my dresser, it’s just so cluttered and not needed. Dust overtime can build up and clog pores 🥺 organization and cleaning can be relaxing 🥰 As much as I love to keep the products in the boxes, I’m making some of the boxes into a big poster and re-purposing others that I can. I’m still going through all of it currently. I’ve also gone through a lot of my clothes to donate that I don’t wear anymore 🥺 Step 2: Getting Ready 😇 In a time where we can sit home in our PJs all day (which I have been doing) I’ve been trying to get ready as much as possible. On days I treat myself everyday I use BITE - All Agave 3-Piece Lip Care Set on my lips because they’ve been really dry lately and de-bronzi from DE with DRUNK ELEPHANT - Virgin Marula Antioxidant Face Oil and their SPF since I’ve started to use DRUNK ELEPHANT - A-Passioni Retinol Creamas of two days ago and it’s so important to keep those areas you use retinol protected❤️ Another go to of mine lately for a treat myself day is SOL de Janeiro - Brazilian Bum Bum Cream Minialong with DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial Mask Mini Step 3: Mindful tasks 🌊 I used to love to draw and paint. My sister recently had someone ruin her vans(they got ketchup all over them) so instead of getting rid of them, I repainted them white and am putting the Great Wave on them 😇 I also have to keep up with university work- I have a calendar now with all the work that needs to be done written out so I keep up📚 Step 4: Working Out Outside 🌺 Getting outside hasn’t been easy but my mom and I have been walking to huge neighborhoods to stay active 💪🏼 I really want to lose weight and not gain during this unknown time. We take my pup with us and I always wear DRUNK ELEPHANT - Umbra Sheer Physical Daily Defense Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30 (which you can see in my eyebrow) Florida heat and sun can be so brutal. Go outside!! Breathe in the beautiful morning. It makes us feel a sense of normality walking around and still seeing other people and saying hello (from a-far of course) Vitamin D is so important and in times like this where we can feel so isolated and sad, getting out and being under the sun can really help take your mind off it all💓
Drunk Elephant C-Tango™ Multivitamin Eye Cream
DRUNK ELEPHANT - C-Tango Multivitamin Eye Cream @drunkelephant packs five forms of vitamin c, eight types of peptides, three different ceramides, CoQ10, and vitamin e into a moisturizing base of three plant oils and glycerin for the glorious eye cream that is 𝐂-𝐓𝐚𝐧𝐠𝐨. The ingredient list alone is enough to get me to fall in love, but the user experience is what will always keep me buying C-Tango when I swore I’d never use an eye cream. Creamy without feeling heavy, it glides onto skin to brighten the under-eye area and leave a hydrated base for makeup application. I apply it both in the evening and the next morning if I’m not getting much sleep that night, its gentle formula nourishing my skin and plumping it so I only look my usual amount of sleepy 😴
When it comes to perfumes I’m really picky because I hate floral scents but I don’t like the strength of men’s colognes either.. that’s where this baby saves me 🥺 COCO Chanel Mademoiselle is the perfect blend of being feminine without being overly sweet. I’ve been buying this perfume for years now, every time it runs it I have to run for another one. Some things I love about this perfume are -The scent! (Duh) -How long the scent lasts -The bottle can honestly last you a whole year even with daily use because it’s so strong you don’t need a lot! -Makes you feel like a bad b when you’re wearing it 😉 This will be a staple until I’m 80 🤍 CHANEL - COCO MADEMOISELLE Eau de Parfum

Drunk Elephant | Protini Polypeptide Cream V.S. Lala Retro Whipped Cream
TEXTURE Protini Polypeptide Cream is lightweight and watery, very friendly to me as it is not sticky at all, even on my oily skin. Lala Retro Whipped Cream： It is a creamy texture. Compared with Polypeptide Cream, this one is heavier and more sticky. It is too heavy for ones who have oily skin type just like me. Blendable Protini Polypeptide Cream： This face cream is very bendable on the face. Meanwhile, it is quite natural for my skin to absorb. My face feels cool, and my skin turns to be very soft after using it. Lala Retro Whipped Cream： Because of the heavier texture, this one is harder to blend. Maybe it is more suitable for dry skin type. Moisturize In terms of moisturizing, I think Lala works better than Protin. Generally, both of them are recommendable, but I prefer Protini Polypeptide Cream. It works just right for me. If you want to try a more moisturizing cream, then Protini Polypeptide Cream is there for you！
Empties (already repurchased)
I got this in a skincare sample box my boyfriend bought me this Christmas and I have already repurchased the full size. This is a thick whipped moisturizer that targets dry skin and is designed to help retain and repair the skins moisture barrier as well as reduce signs of aging. I was super excited to try this because the drunk elephant protini is one my of my favorites but falls a little short in providing enough moisture. I managed to get three weeks out of this mini. I was absolutely okay with paying $60 for the full size just because of how well this kept my skin moisturizer. When you apply it the texture is very thick and it can take a while to sink in. I found that adding a few drops of marula oil really helped make this sink in and absorb quicker. I would highly recommend this for people who deal with dry skin. It is the perfect winter moisturizer which is why I rated it 5 stars! DRUNK ELEPHANT - Lala Retro Whipped Moisturizer
WORTH IT? La Mer VS. Lancôme
La Mer: The cleansing oil Price: $130 200ml Recommendation index: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Removing ability: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Mildness: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Cost performance index: 🌟🌟🌟 This has been the best cleanser I've tried, yet. I have used it for a year. The cleanser contains marine oils, but the amazing thing is that no oily layer is left behind after cleansing. It is a great thing for people who already have oily skin. I only need 1-2 pumps for my face and it just lifts all the makeup and gross stuff off my face at the end of my day. My skin is refreshed and radiant and ready for the rest of my skin care routine. If you have pimple / acne issues, this product also helps calms them down. What's more, it looks luxurious and I feel happy when I see it. La Mer line is worth every penny! Lancôme: BI-FACIL VISAGE MAKEUP REMOVER & CLEANSER Price: $64 200ml Recommendation index: 🌟🌟🌟🌟 Removing ability: 🌟🌟🌟🌟 Mildness: 🌟🌟🌟 Cost performance index: 🌟🌟🌟🌟 Comprised of a lipid and water layer, you need to shake the bottle to mix and activate the product before using. The Bi-Facil cleanser removes make up easily and clean enough. Also, no greasy oily residue remaining. I have sensitive skin, and this didn't irritate my skin at all. Therefore, with a half price of La Mer one, Bi-Facil can be a dupe to replace the high-end product for basic cleaning. But I still think Lar Mer one is better and worthy because whenever I'm using it my skin is always so well behaved. If you budget is low, it is definitely better to choose Lancôme Bi-Facil. But if you are willing to spend a little bit more, believe me, try La Mer one first!
I’m doing little mini reviews on my fav La Mer items. lamer - cleansing oil. CLAIMS: Designed with precious marine oils that are bio-compatible with the skin. The Cleansing Oil is the optimal first step to any daily cleansing regime. As The Cleansing Fluid is massaged into the skin, circulation is improved. Magnetised Tourmaline enables The Cleansing Oil to gently, yet effectively, dissolve excess sebum, deeply cleansing the pores without disrupting skin's natural balance. Skin is detoxified as stubborn, hard-to-remove makeup is lifted away, leaving skin feeling pristine. Known for its therapeutic properties, ionising sea salt osmotically remineralises the skin. MY RESULTS: I’ve been using this cleansing oil for a year now. This is only my second bottle and as you can see there’s hardly any out of it so although this is on the expensive end for a cleanser it does last a long time. I massage half a pump onto dry skin and then add water until it milks up then I remove with wet cotton pads. This lifts up all traces of make up including waterproof mascara and does not sting the eyes. My skin is always so clean after use but it also feels really conditioned, and doesn’t leave a greasy oil residue afterwards. Once I finished this I originally thought it was nothing special and I wasn’t going to repurchase and bought something else, I lasted 7 days before I had to replace it. For me there is no other oil cleanser like this for removing make up. I simply cannot be without it. Even is your not wearing make up this cleanser removes any surface oil effectively and completely cleans the pores and removes any traces of SPF to prevent that from clogging pores, which can result in blackheads
You might remember me talking about VENN Skincare a lot as it was one of my favorite brand discoveries. The overnight mask and concentrate are still some of my favorites today. VENN is formulated in South Korea & has a very clean formulated line. It very much like a K Beauty meets clean meets luxury meets clinical skincare line. VENN launched a wonderful cleanser, facial oil and vitamin B concentrate. I have two of the three to talk about . The red color of the Advanced Multi-Perfecting Red Oil Serum is completely stunning. This facial oil has a lighter non-greasy or heavy feeling texture so it gives a nice glow without being heavy. The scent is this nice light citrus kind of natural plant extract smell. It’s not floral nor earthy or deep green. It’s just light and fresh. Overall this oil gives a nice radiant glow to the skin. It’s got antioxidant and free radical protection, fermented extracts (always a favorite of mine), radiance boosting oils plus ingredients to help with firmness and elasticity. It’s an all around treatment oil. My skin felt very radiant while using this oil . The Moisture-Balance All-In-One Face Cleanser was an item I thought I wasn’t going to be into that much. I have a ton of cleansers and lets face it after a while they all seem the same. This is quite nice however and I really loved it. This has such a nice creamy gel, non foaming, hydrating texture. It’s perfect for a morning or second part of a double cleanse. This is fragrance free, it has calming and antioxidant benefits plus it’s super gentle and non-drying. This has a low pH of 5.5 which is perfect for preserving the moisture barrier. What I love about it is the gentle fragrance free nature, great inci list and low pH . Overall I was very pleased with their launches. I really need to get the B Concentrate as I’m sure it’s amazing. I was going to grab it when it gets cooler as I think it has a heavier creamy texture. If you’re only going to get one of the two I would go with the cleanser as it’s such a nice gentle one
VENN-Advanced Multi-Perfecting Red Oil Serum
Been simplifying my morning routine to add in my new purchases, and I’m kind of loving what’s happening already after only 3 days... ▫️ instytutum cleansingmilk - love this gel cleanser for the morning, does not strip my skin and leaves it supple and moisturized. Guess I need to buy the full size now... ▫️ herbivore lapisoil - halfway through the mini and loving this oil! Thinking I need to buy the full size and get the mini size of the phoenixoil next! ▫️ freshbeauty blackteaagedelay eye cream - started using this week and feels refreshing when I put it on, need to try longer to see results ▫️ drunkelephant bhydra & cfirmadayserum - been mixing these together, skin has been looking a little brighter but need to give it more time to see any real results ▫️ instytutum liftingcream as my last step to moisturize / hopefully reduce some fine lines and help lift. I’m hoping it can give me some results and I can get the Chanel le lift creme off my mind and keep my wallet a little heavier🤞🏼 ▫️ chanel cccreme (not pictured) is my last step - it has 50spf and amazing coverage without drying my skin so I apply that, a little mascara, and out the door!💞
DRUNK ELEPHANT-B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum
Today it’s about this Farmacy Anti-Aging Duo! — 🍯 Honeymoon Glow has had a special place in my heart ever since she launched. She’s a 3-in-1 serum formulated with a 14% AHA/BHA/gentle flower acids blend, and she’ll resurface dull skin, exfoliate, and help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid is there to deliver intense hydration, and salicylic acid is meant to help minimize the appearance of pores. 🍯 Sleep Tight is a solid balm that is supposed to melt into a fast-absorbing oil-gel. It contains a plant-based alternative to retinoids to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improve skin radiance and firmness. 💛 I have seriously been LOVING this duo. Honeymoon Glow has been a dear favorite of mine ever since she launched. Sleep Tight, however, has necessitated some getting used to - there is no fast absorption into the skin for me, I’m left feeling like I have Vaseline all over my face, and I’m scared for my face to touch the pillow. I will say, though, that Sleep Tight is very soothing on top of feisty Honeymoon Glow, and that this pair has made my skin look and feel *amazing* in the morning - I’ve been waking up to lighter dark spots and such a smooth, soft, truly glowing complexion ✨ That heavy balm hydration is definitely good for something! —

Mad Hippie-Cleansing Oil
👋🏻 Heyhey! I was so worried I would be too late with joining the #drunkinlove wagon with @drunkelephant. But truth be told, it’s never too late! 🙌🏻 Drunk elephant only uses nontoxic ingredients! “Suspicious 6” (Essential Oils, Drying Alcohols, Silicones, Chemical Screens, Fragrance/Dyes and SLS,) will never be used as they believe is the root of almost every skin issue. The Littles- I love this kit! Perfect introduction to the brand and the packaging is on point! I’m so #obsessed!! My skin never looked better 🙌🏻 Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser - Gentle & cleans well! Gives a good lather, not drying but minimal tightness C-Firma Day Serum - Holy grail! This lasted me 6 weeks! I used 1 pump for my entire face each morning. On week 2 I noticed changes and by week 4 my pigmentation was nearly all faded!! And best of all, new pigmentations doesn’t last as long as it did before 🙌🏻🙌🏻 B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum - Love mixing this with cfirma to control the stickiness that comes with cfirma T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Night Serum - Another HG! Texture was smoother next morning and it seemed like I haven’t been breaking out as much as I used to! 🙌🏻🙌🏻 Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil - Absolutely love this oil after using baby facial! It’s the perfect hydration needed and getting the instant glow! Lala Retro Whipped Cream - Very rich and smooth, made my skin feel very soft and my new eczema patches were immediately relieved upon application 🙌🏻 Shaba Complex Eye Serum - I’ve found myself another great eye product my eyes like! It was instantly absorbed! I have the most needy eyes, I get eczema around my eyes if hydration drops by 0.0001%. I’m also milia prone. Umbra Sheer Physical Daily Defense SPF 30 - Thick and a white cast. I thought I would hate it, but after several minutes, my skin looked so amazing! It had a blurring and perfecting effect! Immediate fave!
DRUNK ELEPHANT-Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser
Drunk elephant B Hydra Review! A hydrating serum fortified with multi-molecular weight Hyaluronic Acid and Panthenol to hydrate and soothe the skin. I also like to use this as a buffer for Retinol, as it creates a sort of film on the skin. It contains all the usual humectants (Glycerin, Sodium Hyaluronate and Panthenol) as well as Niacinamide (supports barrier function) and a blend of fruit extracts (Watermelon, Apply and Lentil) that target hydration + oxidative stress. The texture is my favourite aspect of the product - unlike most hydrators that are runny, this is a viscous, silicone-free gel that offers immediate plumping to skin’s surface. I’ve been through 4 bottles of B Hydra, which is a testament to how much I enjoy it. I went through 2 bottles of the old formula and 2 of the reformulated version. I still prefer the texture of the old formula (this one is significantly thinner, though still gel like), but I do prefer the results of the reformulated version. It feels more balancing with the addition of Niacinamide, and the hydration definitely seems more long-lasting. It works beautifully with every single product (there’s not many hydrating serums I can say that for!), has no tackiness and just feels like a dream to use. Other than the fact I find this balancing/regulates sebum production + that it’s far more texturally elegant than most hydrators, the results are more-or-less the same as others. It’s hard for me to be ‘blown away’ by a hydrating serum. Though they are fundamental in any routine, they lack the ‘bells and whistles’ of other serums. Not necessarily a bad thing, it just means that all I ask is that it offers hydration. Does this do that? Yes.
