Drunk Elephant C-Firma Day Serum Review
Drunk elephant is a pretty newer brand so I was hesitant about it and the hype it got I just believed was just for social media (just like the Boscia peel off mask don't get me started!!) This is my staple product that I will forever use until my skin needs something different. This is a Vitamin C serum packed with an AHA blend! Between this one and the sister product Drunk Elephant T.L.C Framboos Glycolic Night Serum (which I will review next) has been my skin life saver. Although this is a pretty penny it is worth every dime. You can try a sample at Sephora but I'm telling you once I began using it I really didn't think it would work but after a few weeks one morning I looked in the mirror and said "DAMN" my skin really has subtle glow. This was one of my very first purchases before I got deeper into AHA/BHA/Retinol products. I recommend this if for all skin types, but if you're sensitive use maybe 2/3 times a week to get you skin used to it. Also note it has AHA in is which can make you skin sensitive to the sun please use a good sunscreen with it, I suggest the Dr. Jart Sun Fluid. This is a great product if you suffer from acne scarring and adult acne as it is packed with Vitamin C which supports our skin!
