It's called the "10 Day Green Smoothie Cleanse" and it was designed by JJ Smith. It wasn't easy to do, but now I don't want to stop. When you see that "detoxing" from sugar, gluten, dairy and alcohol can have such a drastic effect on the way you feel, it really makes you want to take a closer look at why. One of the most interesting things to me was that I actually ended up gaining weight. Probably because I needed to, but still. You have 2-3 green smoothies per day made with things like kale, spinach, banana, berries, peaches, mangoes, flax seed and raw plant protein powder. To make sure I was getting enough calories and fat, I added avocado and coconut oil. I also used decaffeinated green tea in place of water. You are allowed to have 2-3 green smoothies per day plus all the chicken and vegetables you want. The smoothies taste great and before you know it, you are craving them. There is a 3-4 day period in the beginning that you can have headaches and pains, but it's normal and the fourth day is better. I had the toughest time giving up the caffeine, so I have taken it back up, but I just don't have it with cream and sugar anymore. After having nothing for over a week, almond milk and raw stevia tastes surprisingly great.
What’s going on at Drunk Elephant? We are surprised almost daily at the positive response from our customers, the wonderful press and reviews – and the enormous amount yet to be learned! I just returned from a jam-packed trip to Los Angeles filled with many productive meetings. We are back in product development and preparing to add a couple of exciting products to the line by this Fall 2014. In July, we are so excited to be heading to CosmoProf in Las Vegas with Discover Beauty, a program of CosmoProf North America that selects an array of unique, cutting-edge brands sure to be the next big thing! We will be meeting with retailers from all over the world and will have the chance to tell our story, which we believe is a really intriguing one. In August we will be in New York for editor desksides, which is one of my favorite things to do. There’s nothing like sitting face-to-face with the beauty editors who have literally tried it all.
We remain so thankful for your support and your feedback that helps us become better – it’s of great value to us. If we can help people find better internal and skin health by continuing to produce this non-toxic line that delivers real and visible results, then we have done what we set out to do.

Many people have asked about our elephant logo. I really wanted something that was more serious to balance out the playful name I had chosen. I had been asking others to help me design a logo, but it just sort of never happened. So, one day I asked my daughter to get me a stack of paper and a sharpie. We sat down at the breakfast table and I said,
