Clear some space in your bathroom cabinet. Drunk Elephant, aka the cult US skincare brand, is about to take over your Insta shelfie. Read more for your 6 must-haves from the brand.
Dubbed a ‘clean-clinical’ line of skincare, Drunk Elephant has a major following on Instagram, thanks to its fresh aesthetic. “People on social media are talking about it because it works for them,” says founder Tiffany Masterson. “It works. It’s safe. Plus, our packaging looks pretty bomb on the bathroom counter.”
Undoubtedly one of planet beauty’s most hyped skincare brands, you no longer need a U.S plane ticket to get your Drunk Elephant fix. Having launched in 2015, you can now (finally) get 15 products in the UK. >>>
We’ll start you off with six products to up your skincare game. Put these Drunk Elephants in your travel trunk.
THE HERO HYDRATOR
Protini Polypeptide Cream, £68
Like a shot of protein for your face, this best-seller contains a high level of peptides and amino acids to help improve your skin’s tone, texture and firmness. Apply it straight after a flight for some instant complexion rescue. If you’re going to invest in one Drunk Elephant, introduce your face to this one.
THE KICK-START SERUM
C-Firma Day Serum, £80
If you’re someone who likes to keep your day and night skincare totally separate (we get it), meet this vit C-packed serum. It has an instant brightening and firming effect that we can’t get enough of. Use it to give your skin a major kick-start on jet lag mornings.
THE TRAVEL TONICS
The Littles Kit, £90
Are you: a) new to Drunk Elephant? (tick), b) travel a lot? (tick), then c) buy this kit, pronto. The perfect mini-sized intro to the brand, it contains seven small but mighty potions – ideal if you hate letting your skincare regime slide when you’re travelling.
THE JELLY CLEANSER
Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser, £34
If you haven’t converted to a jelly cleanser yet, make this your next pit-stop. It melts away all traces of make-up, grime and pollution making it your skincare NBF if you’re a regular to big city breaks. The innovative jelly texture won’t leave your skin feeling tight or dried out.
THE LIP S.O.S
Lippe Balm, £18
Fact: every cult brand needs a lip balm. Lippe not only looks cute as hell, but the buttery texture volumises as it moisturises so your lips look hydrated and a little plumper. We heart a multi-tasker.
THE WONDER OIL
Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil, £40
One for the purists. With nothing else added, this is oil in its purest form and can be used morning or night. Rich in omegas 6 and 9, use two or three drops on your face, hands, chest or arms to help soothe dry, tight skin. It’s like post-plane bliss for dehydrated skin.
