Anytime I see the elusive BIG options, I BUY. I would LOVE if DE would start offering a refill option. (As the dispenser can be opened and the product is in a drop container.) Further, I wish there was a subscription option. I do hope both of these aspects are in the works.
As for the product itself, I've tried reverting to Dermalogica out of convenience. (I have a professional license and can buy it wholesale.) But, ultimately, DE is a superior product. My skin feels better and (quite literally) yearns for it. The texture of my skin is better, my face doesn't bother me (feel tight, irritated, dry/oily, or the constant need to be washed). I am OFFICIALLY done trying to leave DE.
But, please, for the love of Earth—REFILLS! And, for the love of me—SUBSCRIPTION!
Three weeks ago I started using this cream and the first week everything was perfect. It does moisturize very well and it works good as a primer under foundation. But after one week I have noticed little pimples in different parts of the face. That time I decided that my skin is getting used to the new cream, but after some days I got the real acne over all face, even in places I never have a problem! I stoped to use this cream for week and it became much better. Really disappointed with this product, because the description says that it is for all skin types, so you don't expect such troubles. Recommend to buy the trail size before purchasing the full version.

I mixed this with their hydration serum and one of the oils for the perfect night time routine. My skin felt nice at first but after 3 weeks or so my skin started to have a lot of irritation and build up. I did not notice a fix to ny of my dryness and I even started to break out from the skin congestion. I noticed most DE products contain marula oil which can heacily congest your skin.

I can definitely tell a difference when I'm not using it and when I am

When I saw this on my front step I was so excited! But that night I used it I woke up with acne all over my face. DON'T BUY THIS PRODUCT!

I've been using this product for a week in my morning routine and it has definitely improved the texture and tone of my skin.
Most of the negative reviews seem to come from people that are not properly exfoliating. You can't boost moisture without increasing cell turn over. You'll break out

I've been using this product for several months, but it keeps burning my skin upon application. I won't be repurchasing.

I received a sample of this as my birthday gift. I was so excited as ive always wanted to try DE but could not justify cashing out. For the first week I really enjoyed this moisturizer. It felt nice on my skin. 2 weeks in, I start to notice cystic acne between and around my eyebrows and on my chin. Mind you, I do NOT suffer from acne, and this was a surprise to me. I also noticed my pores became very congested. I didnt connect the dots until my small jar was almost gone. This was the only new product that ive introduced into my skincare routine. I did some research and found that Marula Oil, which is in 99% of DE products, is comedogenic. I would avoid this if you are prone to acne and congestion.

My new HG! After seeing this product on Tiktok earlier this year, I decided to splurge over the summer as I was getting really dry patches on my face and other moistures burned and did not help my condition. After daily use 2x day (morning and night) since the summer, I can confidently say that my skin has never been better. Although this is definitely a splurge item for me, it is worth every penny imo. My skin texture has greatly improved since using, and my skin is less red and irritated. 10/10 would recommend to those with dry/combination sensitive skin.

I got the sample for my birthday and used it twice. The skin from the apple of my cheeks has dried out to the point it burns and is flaky. Im better off with a generic moistruizer

Jennifer from York, PA
This is the first over the counter skin cream that hasn't broken my face out with acne, including other products that are marketed for sensitive skin. I had received a sample of the cream as the month's birthday gift, which led to me returning to buying the product.
Jenni from New Boston, Ohio
I got a sample of this for my Birthday. I love how it makes my face feel. Unlike other moisturizers, I can't feel it on my face and it doesn't make my face oily. The only con is the price but regardless I'm so tempted to buy!
Lyss from Atlanta, GA
I got this as a sample for my birthday and just went and bought the largest size! Best hydrating facial moisturizer I've ever tried, doesn't leave my skin greasy or break me out. Goes on so silky and had little to no scent which is a plus for me. Will continue to repurchase over and over! Only con is the price.

Too old for acne from Tulsa, OK
Got this as a free gift from Ulta for birthday. Because of mixed reviews regarding acne, i put it only on the right side of my face. It made it feel soft and supple; not greasy. I was loving it! By day 8 I started breaking out with blemishes only on the right side of my face. Probably should wait for the proper 30 days but im not going to deal with acne for the next couple weeks. Ill use it on my elbows. I really wanted to like this.
Stacy from New York
I received this as a birthday sample, i have sensitive skin & this was an instant regret, I actually had to wash my face because I had hives! So glad I got it for free cause at this price point i would have cried with this reaction!
Lyss from Chicago IL
I got a mini of tbis for my birthday, i wasnt expecting to be wowed but i really have been. My skin is super dry and sensitive from going through chemotherapy and this really, really helps. It's really moisturizing without feeling too globby or thick and i feel like it even helps prevent skin blemishes, i got those from chemo too but they were way less once i started using this. My skin is so hydrated and everyone says my skin looks so good for a cancer patient. I will definitely be repurchasing, even after chemo! This is the first time I've ever felt compelled to write a review at ulta.

I got a small sample for my birthday and I love it and want to buy more but but is very pricy.

I have generally thought of Drunk Elephant as an overhyped and overpriced trendy brand. I received a trial size of this moisturizer as the birthday gift from Ulta and expected it to be a generic, nothing special, moisturizer. I was pleasantly surprised with how lightweight and deeply moisturizing it was in my nighttime routine (which includes prescription retinol) and my morning routine. Many moisturizers either aren't hydrating enough or they sit on the surface, this one does not. Normally I need a heavier moisturizer at night, but not with this product. The BIGGEST selling point for me was that I had had the worst allergic reaction to a serum I have ever had a few days before trying this. I usually battle texture for days after an allergic reaction and in general. After two days of using this my irritation induced texture was absolutely gone! This cream also replaces more than just my moisturizers in my routine, making it a great time saver and a good value. Needless to say I went back for the full size!
jjjjj from ann arbor
i got a lottle trial size of this jar, and at first i wasnt going to try it because my skin has been one crazy year. Ive had persistant ance all year long and ive been tryinf everyrhing to make it gonaway but nothing helped. I even got a chemical burn from some products. So i tried this after recvieing it. Skeptical about trying new things, i gave in and thought, well my skin is already in bad shape, its worth trying. and WOWWWW YALLLLLLLLL. this is the ONLY thing that has helped my ance GO AWAY COMPLETELY. Ive only been using it for 5 days/nights and ALL of my ance is drying up and going away. I cant beleive this is my magic product. I was hesitat to try because of the tik tok hype around this brand in general but im SOLD. i finally have NO ance on my face whatsoever. If you struggle like me, Its definitely worth trying
Do not buy! from Los Angeles, CA
I received a sample for my birthday gift. I broke out into hives, my face turned swollen and I had puffy eyes. It was so bad I couldn't even go to work. That was the only new thing in my routine that day. I ate the same foods, used the same face wash. Right after I applied that moisturizer I laid down to go to sleep and my face became very itchy. I have sensitive skin but never in my life have a broken out in hives from a skin product like this. Very disappointed as it was a birthday sample gift.
Cass from Arlington, VA
Wow, got this as a sample gift and i will be buying more. This moisturizes and smooths our my skin.
