Everyone And Their Mother Should Try Drunk Elephant!

April 30, 2014

Mother's Day is on its way and Drunk Elephant is the perfect gift for any Mom...and I know because I'm a Mom!

  • The Virgin Marula is ideal for the Mom who wants to calm, heal and hydrate throughout the day.  She can use it on her cuticles, in her hair...from her head to her toes.  It's luxurious and she will feel totally pampered. 
  • The Juju and Pekee Bars are wonderful for the Mom who loves the old-fashioned way of cleansing and likes to keep things simple.  They both do their jobs really well...Juju exfoliates and Pekee cleanses dirt and makeup away at the end of the day.  Your Mom's face will feel fresh in the hot months to come.
  • The C-Firma Day Serum is for the Mom who loved to worship the sun in her younger days, or for a younger Mom who spends a lot of time outside.  It corrects and prevents sun damage.  Her skin will feel and look firmer and best of all, will appear brighter!  What Mom would turn that down?
  • The Umbra Sheer Physical Defense.  An anti-aging, antioxidant-packed, moisturizing, illuminating, protective, non-toxic, chemical-screen-free sunscreen.  Need we say more?  This one is for every Mom.
  • The T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Night Serum will give your Mom a smoother and more radiant complexion...practically overnight!  It gently dissolves the glue that hold the dead skin cells to the surface of the skin that nobody really wants hanging around.  It's very effective, but won't irritate.  Mom will be positively glowing and thanking you for it!
  • And, finally, for the picky Mom...you know, the one who knows best.  The one who is super conscious about what she is putting on her skin.  The one who cares about ingredients.  The one who wants to avoid toxins.  The Drunk Elephant Gift Card allows her to browse through all of the products and choose for herself.  She won't have any problem finding something she loves...I promise!

I hope this helps make shopping for the Mom in your life a little easier this year.

Your skin's morning wake-up call: the The JuJu Bar

October 17, 2013

 

There's a lot happening with your skin at night, and sleep enables the body to reverse everyday free radical damage through cellular renewal. While cells repair and rebuild throughout the night, the majority of cell turnover and regeneration occurs during REM sleep.  So, that makes deep sleep a critical component in the quest for healthy looking skin.  T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Night Serum, applied before you hit the sack, will help get the dead skin cells nice and loose and ready to come off.   In the morning when you wake, the JuJu Bar will be there, ready and waiting, to help gently remove those dead cells that have loosened in the night.  Those dead skin cells, by the way, if allowed to stay and build up, can lead to dry patches, blackheads and acne, which nobody wants.

Chemical vs. Physical Exfoliation. Are they both necessary?

September 14, 2013

The short answer is yes.  We do need to both chemically and physically exfoliate our skin.  Chemical exfoliants dissolve keratin protein or the "glue" that holds the dead skin cells together and work best at night while the skin is regenerating itself.
