Here’s what to get from Drunk Elephant’s smoothie glossary
If you’re a skincare junkie, you already know that one key factor to making your routine work is patience. This means not only being patient in waiting for the results, but also with how you apply your chosen products. Some serums need to soak in first before you can add up another product on top of it, which can also be called skincare layering in the beauty community. We were taught on putting whatever is lightest first then thickest last as process this practice (which can take more time in getting ready or getting “unready.”)
But have you ever heard of Drunk Elephant’s skin smoothies? Well, if you haven’t, let us fill you in.
Much like beverages, the brand’s skin smoothies are a concoction of ingredients mixed into one blend. Drunk Elephant’s products are silicone-free and biocompatible so they mix easily and are safe to be blended on the skin.
The principle is pretty simple. You can mix the creams, serums, and oils in the palm of your hand and apply them all at the same time. Aside from the sunscreens, which should sit on top of your skincare, all products are blendable making application easier and more efficient depending on what your skin needs in a day.
Drunk Elephant has a glossary of their smoothies which you can use as. Check out these smoothies that are worth getting wasted for:
C for Yourself Smoothie
If you’re looking to brighten and strengthen your skin barrier, this smoothie is packed with antioxidants from the vitamin C serum and marula oil while peptides and amino acids from the Protini moisturizer promote improvement in texture, appearance, and firmness.
Butter Days Ahead Smoothie
For smooth like butter skin, this trio will be the answer to dry, lined, and irritated skin. The T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Night Serum gently resurfaces dull, congested pores while the pro-vitamin B5 and pineapple ceramide in B Hydra delivers hydration to the skin. As for the brand’s new product, the Wonderwild Miracle Butter, this intensely nourishing salve is sure to rescue chapped, dry, and irritated skin thanks to marula, cupuaçu, mango, and shea plant butters.
Beach Your Heart Out Smoothie
Aside from skincare smoothies, Drunk Elephant also has a blend for anyone who wants to go for that sun-kissed look without the harsh rays of the sun. They have a smoothie that will bring color to the face that involves a rescue cream for dry skin and two tinted products for that bronzed and flushed look all while delivering hydration and color without the sun. Check out Lala Retro Whipped Cream, D-Bronzi Anti-Pollution Sunshine Drops, and O-Bloos Rosi Drops.
