Pamper Night In with Drunk Elephant

I make no secret about ensuring I find one whole hour a week to spend on myself.  I have an incredibly busy and very stressful job outside of blogging and there are times when I don't want to interact with anyone and I simply want to be in a room on my own - usually the bathroom, my favourite place to be.  The lovely people over at Drunk Elephant kindly sent over a Pamper Night in Kit which features the most beautifully fluffy pair of socks and two of their products, I hadn't, until now, tried.

The first product I had tried from Drunk Elephant was the Slaai Makeup Melting Butter Cleanser and it was love at first use. The brand was founded by Tiffany Masterson who said she wanted a clean from toxins and the 'Suspicious 6' namely essential oils, drying alcohols, silicones, chemical screens, fragrance/dyes and SLSs, all ingredients we hear a lot about being bad for you, bad for your skin and so on.

This pamper kit features the Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil and the T.L.C Framboos Glycolic Night Serum, two products which really do help to create that pamper night in.  The first product that intrigued with and one you cannot miss with its bright yellow banding and one which is described as being a hero product.

Sitting within Drunk Elephant's pH-balancing range, this Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil is not only rich in antioxidants but it is also without the artificial chemicals or fragrances. This oil is incredibly lightweight on the skin when applied and it leaves no greasy film on the skin, which when using a facial oil, is an absolute must for me. 

Drunk Elephant states that this oil is like rehab for your skin and this wonder-working, luxury facial oil uses a blend of vitamin E, flavonoids and omegas 6 and 9 which come together to deliver moisture and support a firmer, more luminous appearance as well as working to soothe the skin, relieving redness, blemishes and blotchiness. 

To use this oil, you only need a minimum of two or three drops of the Drunk Elephant Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil on the face, hands, chest or even on your arms to help soothe dry, tight skin. You can also use this oil under the eyes to soften the appearance of fine lines.

The second product is one I absolutely couldn't wait to try was the T.L.C Framboos Glycolic Night Serum.

Described as being an AHA/BHA night serum that refines and resurfaces skin to reveal a smoother and more radiant complexion. T.L.C. Framboos™ enhances the performance of other products by clearing the way for maximum absorption.

I am a huge fan of Glycolic in my skincare and this product gives me that as well as lactic, tartaric, citric and salicylic acids, which come together to work to penetrate pores to remove impurities while gently exfoliating dead, dulling cells. Blended with raspberry extract (a.k.a. ‘Framboos’), horse chestnut and white tea, the formula soothes as it exfoliates, avoiding harsh side effects like dryness and sensitisation.   

I have only used T.L.C Framboos Glycolic Serum a few times a few rather than every evening, one thing I learnt early on in my switching to acids, is to use them in moderation rather than slapping them on, for that my skin thanks me.  I have combination/oily skin, so anything that helps to rebalance the dryness and the oiliness is always going to be a winner with me and I love that this serum leaves no residue on my skin, it absorbs with minimal massaging onto the skin and whilst my skin, which isn't sensitive, I have had no issues at all when using this, in fact, what I have noticed is that the morning after, my skin feels so much better to the touch.

So, I am now three products into the Drunk Elephant range and so far so good, I have loved using both of these products and I love that they are as good as a pair as they are individuals.  Both of these products are widely available online and Cult Beauty* has got some pretty cute giftsets which feature both of these!
