Known for creating biocompatible and pH-balanced skincare formulas, blended with only the best ingredients that support soft, healthy-looking skin, Drunk Elephant is the go-to when your skin needs some TLC. Covering concerns from blemishes to ageing, the brand offer a range of skin-saving solutions that are tailor-made for your personal goals.  

Best for dry skin 

Drunk Elephant Lala Retro Whipped Cream 

Designed to drench your complexion in hydration, the Drunk Elephant Lala Retro Whipped Cream is ideal for dry or lacklustre skin types.  An intensely hydrating face cream designed to moisturise, nourish and visibly refresh the skin, the ceramide-enriched moisturiser for dry skin provides replenishing barrier support by reinforcing the skin’s acid mantle and defending against the effects of everyday stressors.  


Best for mature skin 

Drunk Elephant Protini Polypeptide Cream  

Drunk Elephant Jumbo Protini Polypeptide Cream   

Keep your complexion looking youthful with Drunk Elephant’s Protini™ Polypeptide Cream. Acting as the skincare version of adding a protein shot to your smoothie, the face cream delivers plumping moisture, helping to restore skin’s visible balance and bounce. The formula is supercharged with nine signal peptides that work to enhance skin’s firmness, while smoothing the look of fine lines and wrinkles, day and night. 


Drunk Elephant A-Passioni Retinol Cream  

A-Passioni™ stars a cutting-edge formula that combines 1% vegan retinol with nourishing, superfood-rich ingredients to help dramatically diminish the appearance of fine lines, deep wrinkles and sun damage.   

Retinol and supportive peptides help restore bounce, resilience, and a brighter clarity to skin while helping to even skin tone and texture. Set to reboot your skin back to its healthiest, most youthful state.   

"Retinol is one of 3 forms of retinoids naturally found in our skin. It is easily transformed into the bioactive form of Vitamin A in the skin. Retinol helps improve cell turnover and provide new healthy cells while reducing the appearance of visible lines. Retinol helps increase cell functioning and the production of dermal matrix components (collagen, HA, elastin...). It works from the deeper levels up."  


Best for dull skin 

Give your complexion a new lease of life using Drunk Elephant C-Firma Fresh Day Serum, Drunk Elephant C-Tango Multivitamin Eye Cream or Drunk Elephant D-Bronzi Anti-Pollution Sunshine Drops! 

C-Firma™ Fresh Day Serum supports a noticeably diminished appearance of signs of ageing and photodamage – replaced by incredible radiance and luminosity, with the help of 15% vitamin C as well as an abundance of antioxidants, essential nutrients and fruit enzymes to firm, brighten and improve signs of photoageing.  


C-Tango™ Multivitamin Eye Cream features a blend of potent antioxidants, replenishing ceramides and plant oils and soothing actives, all designed to refresh skin and restore a radiant contour. Gentle enough for AM and PM use and powerful enough to improve the appearance of even stubborn signs of skin damage.  


"There is no better companion for brightening the skin than vitamin C. At Drunk Elephant, we are using a type of vitamin C known as l-ascorbic acid, that is your go-to brightener and free radical fighter. What this means for your skin: a noticeably diminished appearance of the signs of aging and photodamage—replaced by incredible radiance and luminosity. Find it in the C-Firma Fresh Day Serum at a potent 15% concentration."   

Glow day and night with the D-Bronzi Anti-Pollution Sunshine Drops. Designed to revive your radiance, the antioxidant-rich and peptide-infused serum delivers a bronze wash of colour while boosting skin’s elasticity and supporting healthy barrier function.  


Best for oily skin 

Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial 

Babyfacial™ is a pro-quality AHA/BHA “facial” that resurfaces to reveal greater clarity, improved skin texture and tone and a more youthful-looking radiance.   

The at-home “facial” that effectively yet gently exfoliates the pore lining and resurfaces by getting rid of built-up dead skin cells. With a blend of glycolic, tartaric, lactic, citric and salicylic acids, this pro-quality formula dramatically smooths texture while helping to minimise the look of pores, fine lines and wrinkles. Uniquely formulated with chickpea flour, pumpkin ferment and a soothing antioxidant blend of matcha tea, milk thistle and apple, Babyfacial™ is set to deliver incredible brightening and enzymatic action, improving skin’s elastic feel and reveals the look of a more even, radiant, baby-soft complexion.   

"When it comes to excess oil production, salicylic acid is one of the best ingredients to introduce into your routine. Our super-charged T.L.C Sukarii Babyfacial is a pro – strength AHA & BHA treatment with a whooping 25% AHA blend, and 2% salicylic acid. It is meant to be used once a week, and you will feel and see the difference from its first use. That 2% salicylic acid will work wonders by reducing the sebum production and the growth of harmful bacteria which are at the root of excess sebum production."  


Best for blemish-prone skin 

Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Night Serum 

Designed with a dream team of glycolic, tartaric, lactic, citric, and salicylic acids and blended with raspberry extract and horse chestnut, T.L.C. Framboos™ refines uneven texture, targets breakouts, and curbs excess oiliness, revealing a smoother, clearer complexion. T.L.C. Framboos™ sinks in easily and offers an effective level of chemical exfoliation while resisting harsh side effects, like dryness or sensitivity.  

"The best way to target acne would be with a combination of acids, your AHAs and BAHs. I would recommend a gentle, nightly treatment like our T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Night Serum, with a powerhouse of 10% AHAs blend and 1% BHA, which in this case would be your new best friend. BHA, which is 1% salicylic acid helps to reduce imperfections, like enlarged pores by removing trapped dead cells and sebum excess and prevents bacterial growth, which all together are the main causes of acne and active breakouts. It is safe enough to be used every night."

Ever since I discovered makeup and tutorials from a young age, I have been completely in love! Makeup, for me, is more than just a look - it’s a feeling. I am obsessed with the process of applying my makeup, bringing a look together and feeling a whole new level of confidence. My makeup routines and looks have been on a transformative journey over the years but now my most favourite go-to look is glowy, natural and sun-kissed. The Iconic London Radiance Booster is the ultimate game-changer and a makeup must-have!
