So, I’ll be honest…what drew me to the Drunk Elephant line was the bizarre name it has – it’s also been an Allure winner for some of its products. Quick background on the name – the founder came up with this unique name because of the myth that says Elephants eat the small round yellow fruit that grows off the Marula tree. The tale says that when the animals eat the fermented fruit it makes the animals “drunk.” This fruit is the key ingredient in her line, it peeked my interest and I knew I just had to try it for myself. I decided on the C-Firma Day . Some of you may not know it, but vitamin C does wonders for the skin and we should all definitely try to use it in our skincare- it firms and brightens the skin. I use this serum during the day and apply it after washing my face and before applying my moisturizer. One thing I will say is that it is a bit sticky – be prepared to let it sit on your face for a few minutes before continuing on to your makeup routine. If you haven’t used vitamin C before, your skin isn’t used to it then the vitamin C concentrate in the serum might sting momentarily. Don’t be alarmed, the feeling goes away quickly! Plus, pain is beauty, right? I’ve only been using it for a little bit and I am very happy with it. My skin is already looking brighter, more even, and with less dark spots.
Now I can check off my list a great antioxidant to illuminate my skin!
