Rated 4.52 out of 5 stars
I have super dry skin due to health issues and have found it very difficult to find skincare that works and is also relatively affordable. I was googling something else and found a review that was talking about Drunk Elephant (which I'd never heard of) and it made me curious so I decided to try it. I mix a few products together so it's hard to know which products help what and which don't, but the mixture I've used made my skin softer and added moisture overnight and within just a couple of days it looked like I'd never had any dryness at all. It's crazy how fast and how well this works. The combination I use is: First, I add the B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum to my face. Then, as that dries I mix a few in my hand as they suggested (Lala Retro Whipped Cream, F-Balm Electrolyte Waterfacial, and T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Night Serum). When I wake up the next morning my skin is glowing and any lines I may have had disappeared, as well as my pores are smaller (I always had an issue with large pores on my nose due to picking my blackheads with a safety pin because I was an idiot child and didn't know that would destroy my pores). I'm so obsessed that now I'm planning on trying basically all their different products. I just turned 40 years old and I've always looked young (except for having dry skin, which created fake wrinkles) but now I definitely look 20 again. I was thinking about baby botox before this and now that's completely unnecessary.
I bought a large bottle of this because it had great reviews and is cheaper than double serum and le lift serum which I typically use. It was a mistake. Here was my experience:
At first, I thought the twist-to pump bottle was pretty cool and modern looking, but it is clearly composed of a very cheap plastic. The material is less sturdy and flimsier than most water bottles. While applying, I noticed that was very sticky and goopy at not at all luxurious on the skin, plus left a bit of residue on the pump. It felt a bit like I was putting lip glass or cheap intimate lubricant on my skin. I much prefer a silky, relaxing skincare experience. This really felt gross.
It was seemingly fragrance-free which I honestly don't like because I am used to the lovely scents of my other skincare products. I do not have sensitive skin, though, and I understand that fragrance free is a pro for those who do.
I used it for 2 months but it was quite frustrating that I was unable to tell how much was left in the bottle. The opaque lightweight plastic keeps you guessing how much is actually left.
I noticed absolutely no difference in my skin while using this. I don't have problematic skin (27 years old, healthy) but like most of us, I'd like to reduce my pore appearance and keep fine lines from creating while I'm between medspa treatments.
If anything, my pores were significantly more visible while using this versus double or le lift serums.
Also, I know this is for nighttime use, but I did attempt using it in the AM a couple of times. Don't even try to put on makeup after using this. It made it look like I had more pores than I knew I had, even after using my favorite moisturizer and my favorite primer with it.
This is a no for me but I offered 2 stars because I understand the need for fragrance free skincare. The ingredients are also seemingly quite clean.

this worked so well for my acne! I tell my friends about it with acne too, it's just an amazing product, I want to get the bigger size soon because I think it's very worth it. Would totally recommend and repurchase

It works for brightening, but I have lots of little bumps on my chin, and I bought it to lessen the texture, but it hasn't really worked. I have had this for 6+ months. Luckily I bought the day set, so it wasn't a waste of money. If you're going to buy this for the texture lessening, I would decide against.

I have mature combination skin and this product is absolutely the best moisturiser! I use it every night and wake up with dewy skin.

I like getting popular things and it made me feel cool! I mean when you use something that's popular, everyone thinks you're cool. I guess I'm really cool!

I WISH THIS WASNT SO EXPENSIVE. Because this is a GREAT serum. Saw results within a week. It did get a weird smell after i had used for a while so I had to throw it out

I bought this 2 months ago and I forgot to leave a review. This was a terrible product. It arrived at my house after many days after ordering, and then I opened the package and the product had spilled all inside of the box. So I ended up transferring this to a different bottle and then it made me have a terrible breakout! I had a terrible experience with this product and It is not, I repeat NOT worth the money at all.

This product is amazing! It is non-scented but that's okay! It's texture is creaming and soothing on the skin. I absolutely LOVE the packaging as well! This product has helped me so much. It is on the expensive side though.

Hawnofspudland from Idaho
This is the ONLY thing ive found in almost 10 years that actually cleared up my acne! I use a couple nights a week with my regular moisturizer and snail mucin and literally almost never have any breakouts! (Been using consistently for almost a year) ive seen alot of comments about price but one 1.0 bottle lasted me like 9 months so i dont think its bad at all!

Okay so it does kinda make your skin glow a tiny bit, but only after I put it on, does nothing for the texture, look, feel of my skin at all, I have the deluxe sample of it, will not be buying the full sized., but I will still be buying more from this company!

i use sample of this serum and its good but the money is too much

I received this product for free in exchange for my review. I found very few serums I like and this one I love! I have combination skin and this made my face feel so clean and tight. It gave a little tingle when I put it on which I love! Overall a great product and I would definitely recommend!

I swear I've always thought I've had rapid again lol like I be seeing little lines and wrinkles all the time it drives me insane but since I've started using this product I've finally felt like I actually look 25 not 33 and I couldn't be happier 😅

I love this serum! It does exactly what it says - leaves my skin soft, smooth, and glowy. I love that it's fragrance free and as usual with Drunk Elephant the packaging is very good quality. I also love the texture of this serum - it is light, applies very easily, and absorbs into my skin very well. I have nothing bad to say - I highly recommend!
Ashley from San Antonio, tx
I wanted to like this product so bad . I used the cleanser and that was not bad . But once I put this on right afterwards my goodness it started to burn like I was putting soap in a cut ! I waited a little and tried again and same thing ! Not sure what's in this that causes the burning but I know someone else experienced the same thing. So makes me wonder how "clean" are the ingredients.
Sophia from Chicago
I think this seum is great for an age rang from 20s-90s. Smoothes out texured skin as it still hydates skin. Is it worth what you paying? yes
zzcc from undisclosed

Love how everything feels on my skin and how it can all be mixed together. Haven't used it long enough to see any significance results to skin texture yet
