Ever since I was a little kid, I loved saving the best for last: the crispy skin from my KFC meal, the marshmallows in my bowl of Lucky Charms, the red Skittles from the package (I’d eat the purple ones first to get them out of the way)…as you can see, I didn’t have such a healthy diet back then. So it’s no surprise that I saved the Drunk Elephant Protini Moisturizer included in my Sephora birthday pack and only recently started using it. (My birthday was in December.)…
Drunk Elephant has to be one of my favorite names for a company, ever. The origin behind the name is interesting, too—apparently, it’s based on a myth that says elephants get drunk off eating the fruit from marula trees. The company includes marula oil as a key ingredient in many of its products (more on that later). Since Sephora’s birthday bonus was a pack of two popular Drunk Elephant products, I decided that it was a good time to try them out.
I was recently lured into getting one of Sephora’s 15-minute mini facials. My inner frugal Asian lady is generally pretty suspicious of “free” treatments, but my facialist didn’t pressure me into buying anything that day—and she actually recommended something that I already own, thanks to the Sephora Sun Safety Kit: Drunk Elephant Umbra Tinte Sunscreen. Plus, I also picked up a few bonus skincare regimen tips from her.
