The DE Trinity

August 19, 2018

When summer first started the Drunk Elephant fairy sent me some goodies. However, life being one crazy, beautiful mess explains why in late August I am finally reviewing these magical products that seamlessly have transitioned from the summer to the beginning fall (I know we aren't there yet but soon). In case you have never heard Drunk Elephant is a skincare line created by Tiffany Masterson. Its rooted in simple skincare with clean, additive-free ingredients that put in overtime. 
These products specifically these three guard, protect, preserve, nourish, and balance the skin. In case you're itching for more about their products catch up with my review from last February about getting drunk for a month on their products, here.
This is the newest Drunk Elephant family member. Tiffany Masterson the creator of DE wanted something she could mix into her products that could give her skin some color without any irritants or weird ingredients. This is a silky, natural-looking bronzing concentrate and damn do I wish that this product could've been there for me in high school. Its made of vitamins, antioxidants, platinum peptides that protect the skin. Essentially sunshine in a bottle. Its a bronzer that can be used on your face or body with a realistic glow.  A much better deal than all the e.l.f. bronzer I used to buy >.<

My skin has tanned so much this year and so many of my foundations were slightly too light. My face is also slightly lighter than my neck which is a pain. I honestly don't like matching my face to my neck everyday. I just try to find a foundation that matches so closely I don't have to do my neck but with flash this issue isn't solved. This concentrate helps warm up my foundation so much that I don't feel like my neck looks unusual. 1 drop definitely adds a sunshine glow (which is recommended) but I add about 3 lol. It also provides such a warm glow that is natural and not Jersey Shore looking at all. This serum reminds me of the Magically Cool Liquid Powder from the M.A.C Venomous Villainous collection (long long gone but reaching for another product) it used to give me a bronzed look and was very simple.
I wrote about the Umbra Sheer Physical Daily Defense back in February. Since then I have religiously been using this sunscreen. It has SPF 30. This is a non-irritating, broad-spectrum sunscreen with antioxidants. I love a good sunscreen especially one like Drunk Elephant's with clean ingredients. Its crazy how many people don't know what's in the products they are using I highly suggest looking into sunscreen's ingredients. Think Dirty is an iOS app that tells you the ingredient in your cosmetics. I don't usually get serious about all the cosmetics I use but sunscreen and deodorant's ingredients are super important to me P.S. who is with me that every foundation should have sunscreen in it-ITS 2018! 
This is a rehabilitative skin serum to enrich skin and reduce photo-damage it nourishes and balances while giving a little glow. When I first started using this I was a little weary of this facial oil but now it has become apart of my skin routine. I mix it with this heavy-ish face cream I got from Marshalls (they can't all be winners) Honeylab Dry Skin Rescue Intense Moisturizer. My skin and nails feel so hydrated, refreshed when I use this oil. I really suggest this to anyone as a gift. Especially those who are just dipping their feet into the DE life.
Overall this trinity is one that I suggest to any skin care lover. DE suggests the #vacationface smoothie 1 drop of D-Bronzi, pea-sized amount of sunscreen, and 1-2 drops of Virgin Marula Oil. I add a bit of moisturizer + the day serum and its a great way to prime/prep my normal skin for my busy days. 
Out of all of these products I would definitely repurchase the D-Bronzi / Umbra Sheer Physical Defense. However I often consider what life would be like if I bought everything I wanted from DE. I love both of their face creams so much. As the Sephora sale is headed to us I am holding back on all of my shopping for September which is sad but necessary as I spent my whole clothing budget for September in three days over vacation in August lol 

Have you ever tried Drunk Elephant's products? What are your favorites?

A huge round of applause to my friend Mallory for helping me bring this post to you all!

I received these products complimentary from Drunk Elephant for testing purposes. All opinions are always my own.



  1. They sound like great products! I agree, the set would be a nice gift or introduction to the brand! I've heard of the brand before but never tried anything from them.

    I hope that your week has been going well so far :)

  3. Once fall/winter set in, I'll definitely need a bronzing agent like that sunshine serum to bring back that sunshine glow. Great suggestions!

  5. I've not heard of them before but I adore the packaging and branding from Drunk Elephant - such a fun name! I'm definitely really interested in the Umbra Sheer Physical Daily Defense, especially because I'm so bad at using a sunscreen daily! I love that it contains no chemicals and is fragrance free too!
