I love the modernized square design of the bottle. I also love that they use bright colors as the top of their lids, very nice addition to my bathroom shelf! The serum comes with a pump-action top that is easy squirt good size amounts. I don’t need very much at all to get the entire are of my face, neck, chest, + back of my hands.

I was intrigued by Drunk Elephant. Not only for their unique name and product line, but because of what IS NOT on the ingredient list. They are a natural, non-chemical company. So, I automatically know all their products are safe and toxin-free.

I’ve been using this every morning under a light moisturizer + my makeup. It is very lightweight and has a very thin consistency. It’s a very medium brown serum, looks almost amber in color. It’s refreshing to apply and dries very quickly. I love that it leaves my skin moisturized but not too oily.

I usually have issues with using serums + a moisturizer under my makeup, because I have oily skin. I was afraid it would make me shine or glisten throughout the day but it doesn’t interact with my other makeup products at all.

My skin slurps it right up without it looking oily or too dry. I’ve had some issues with some serums causing my makeup to roll into balls and looking un-even or cakey in spots. It’s essentially invisible, like it was never even applied.

I have used plenty of vitamin c serums, but this one is at the very top of the list. When I apply this is very light, rejuvenating tingling feeling. It does a slightly weird scent of something burnt. but that’s only after dispensing. I can’t smell it after I apply it to my face.

I’ve only been using this a short period of time, yet I have both seen and felt my skin improve. I’ve been using this along side- SoapBox Black Bar (facewash) + Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair. I always look tired under my eyes because of the slighter darker skin there. It doesn’t look black, per say- but definitely darker than the rest of my skin. Using this has faded them slightly already and my skin seems to glow from within.


Plus, when I decide to wear it- my makeup lasts all day. Like I said, other serums would leave my face feeling very tight and sticky after I had my makeup on. I appreciate that I don’t have to check a mirror all the time to see if I have makeup balls on my eyebrows!

This is a very high quality serum because I can put ANYTHING on top of this and my skin still doesn’t feel oily. Usually I have to use a powdered makeup (or a very light liquid). Now I don’t have to choose, I can wear whatever I want.

There’s no trick to how this serum works so well, it’s secret is pumpkin extract. Pumpkin extract is amazing for the skin and beneficial in so many ways. Pumpkin is packed with nutrients and APA’s which help to smooth and brighten skin. Pumpkin also contains antioxidants Vitamin A & C which softens and soothes the skin while also boosting collagen! :)

This is amazing for those with a dull complexion and pigmentation issues. The pumpkin contains zinc which controls and regulates oil production (SO, yes- this is the perfect serum for oily skin) and it helps to naturally heal the skin. Pumpkin is amazing at removing pigmented skin cells and brightening skin cells while nourishing from within.

This is a with anti-aging and pigmentation issues. Although my skin doesn’t looked aged, I do have an uneven skin tone and huge pores. Just using this for the short amount of time, I can already see that my skin tone has evened out a little and my pores are gradually getting smaller- which is amazing!

Even though I’m only 25, it’s never too early to start taking care of my skin. Whether you’re 25 or 55- this product is amazing for all ages.
