Skincare junkies of Ireland, prepare to freak out.
If you pay attention to any American beauty bloggers or YouTubers, you’ve probably heard them talking about Drunk Elephant this, Drunk Elephant that.
The US skincare brand is a Sephora best-seller, and and the cute packaging pops up on Instagram so often it’s almost annoying. We know it’s supposed to be good stuff! But it’s not available over here, so shut up about it!
So why do people love it so much? Well, Drunk Elephant is a self-professed ‘clean’ beauty brand, formulated with the most effective, least harmful ingredients (you’d think every skincare brand would work that way, but nah). It’s veeery pricey, but according to the rave reviews, it works.
Here are five of the brand’s most hyped products (all prices are converted from the Sephora dollar price, so just a guide rather than the confirmed amount).
Good for all skin types, this serum promises to “refine and resurface” the skin overnight – it contains 12% glycolic acid, which is great for brightening and gently exfoliating.
We love a Vitamin C product to even out and brighten the skin, and this one claims to be “super-potent”. Oh yes.
Looking past the disturbing name, we think we can get behind this exfoliating mask: It’s got a mixture of glycolic, lactic, and salicylic acids in it, which work together to revitalise dull skin.
This is a thicccc moisturiser that somehow doesn’t leave one shiny or greasy. Sounds like a winter skin saviour.
Another one with a confusing name, but it’s all good – it’s a ‘protein moisturiser’ designed to boost skin tone, texture and firmness.
Is Drunk Elephant 2bougie4u, or will you be checking it out come October? We might have to start saving up…
