The French have a saying, “bien dans sa peau”. It means, to be well in one’s skin. This ain’t the mid-90s; looking healthy is what’s chic today! You may be working from home and your “bubble” doesn’t extend much farther than your postal carrier. So, what if your makeup was really skincare, rendering the real you even more beautiful? Drunk Elephant has some new products that are great for all ages, all genders. I was happy to be hosted to experience them!
Drunk Elephant has created a game-changer: tinted serums! D-Bronzi Anti-Pollution Sunshine Drops. This is a clear, sheer bronzer chock full of Vitamin F and anti-oxidants. It has buildable color, but try a drop on each cheek to start. Then, you can experiment with using it as a subtle contour. The finish has a glow, not glittery. So anyone can use it day or night!
Is bronzer not in your color wheel or do you like the idea of sculpting your bone structure in the most subtle of ways? O-Bloos Rosi Drops are sheer, but not gel-looking. They are a peachy tint that you can use for blush or highlighter. They contain omega fatty acids and sappanwood bark to fortify your skin.
Both serums are packaged in very portable cartridges. Like all Drunk Elephant products, they are formulated to work well mixed with all of of their other products. They — and I, too — highly suggest combining drops with Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil for extra pampering. It incorporates antioxidants, along with omegas 6 and 9. The oil adds an extra glow to the tinted serums and also makes them even more sheer and blendable.
Do you have a bunch of lip balms? Okay, you need one more. Lippe Balm just does so much more for the program! It’s a soft, but not greasy balm — it won’t catch on little bits of chapped skin that you’re trying to heal. It’s unscented. This is what they say about it: “Spiked with an antioxidant-rich blend of avocado and mongongo nut oils, plus a tripeptide and sea fern algae, Lippe gives lips a plump look and a better-defined lip line.” That’s a lip makeover in a tube!
Some people are afraid to exfoliate their body, whether because of harsh and jagged nut shells or dirty loofas. But then one would be missing out on the best way to get rid of dead, crepey skin, discolorations and uneven skin tone. Sugared Koffie Almond Milk Scrub has multiple benefits. Coffee scrubs have been used for years to help combat cellulite and stretch marks — the caffeine is said to help with those maladies.
This scrub has almond milk, coffee seed, passionfruit and marula oils. This doesn’t smell like coffee desserts, rather more like a good European espresso. Though it has oils, it’s not oily. It emulsifies on your wet skin. Good for everything “below the neck”, don’t forget using it on your feet and hands for a quick buff. Remember, though — exfoliants should be used on a regular basis. You can’t take off years of neglect in one application. This scrub will not disturb your skin barrier or irritate it.
