Drunk Elephant T.L.C Framboos Glycolic Night Serum Review-
I have had the good luck of living in a country right now where the very coveted Drunk Elephant products are readily available & I got a trial sample of this T.L.C serum with my cult beauty shopping. I immediately ordered a full size (in spite of the gut wrenching price) after using this for 3-4 days & saw an immediate change.
What Drunk Elephant Says-
This high-tech gel resurfaces dull skin, gently lifting away dead skin cells by dissolving the glue that holds them to your skin’s surface, revealing a smoother, more radiant complexion. The dream team of alpha and beta hydroxy acids that power this formula include glycolic, lactic, tartaric, citric and salicylic acids, which work together to penetrate pores to remove impurities while gently exfoliating dead, dulling cells. Blended with raspberry extract (a.k.a. ‘Framboos’), horse chestnut and white tea, the formula soothes as it exfoliates, avoiding harsh side effects like dryness and sensitisation. Fine lines, wrinkles, discolouration along with excess oiliness and pores will appear dramatically diminished. Get ready to go from a drab complexion to an absolutely luminous one, practically overnight! If that’s not enough to convince you, here’s what our fabulous Co-founder & Co-CEO, Alexia, has to say: “Drunk Elephant is the alchemist of acids, this night serum buffers and balances a family of five skin-boosting AHA/BHAs to maximise my morning glow without any redness at all. I’ve been using this for a month now and this has not only faded some stubborn acne scars, but also smoothed the ‘concentration furrows’ between my brows.” The airtight (and cute!) container also helps the formula to stay super-fresh.

My take on the Drunk Elephant T.L.C Framboos Glycolic Night Serum-
The packaging is the most amazing ever! It comes in an opaque sturdy white bottle with a unique twist & lock pump packaging ^_^ It is amazing for keeping the ingredients fresh & potent (the glycolic acid) & for using & travelling as well ^_^ Full marks! This serum has a neon pink cap unlike the neon orange of the vitamin C.
The serum is colorless with a very watery texture & a single pump is enough to cover my entire face & neck ^_^ Due to its lightweight texture I don’t mind layering this with my other nightly ritual products. It gets absorbed into skin immediately without any sticky or oily residue.
I immediately noticed a difference after using this serum for the very first time. My skin looked & felt so so smooth, plump & baby-like. I was totally blown by the effects & immediately ordered a full size. My tiny little bumps were gone & I could touch my skin & feel that my skin was smoother than with any exfoliation treatment ever.
The serum is very very potent to the extent that I usually don’t use it more than 2-3 times a week since using it every night made my skin too raw. I love how bright & smooth my skin looks & feels every night I use it & I have given up my normal scrubs entirely.
The serum has no fragrance whatsoever.
Pros of the Drunk Elephant T.L.C Framboos Glycolic Night Serum:
1> Best potent & user friendly bottle with pump packaging <3
2> Watery, runny, lightweight serum texture which absorbs into skin immediately.
3> Skin feels baby soft & smooth immediately after first use.
4> Has worked better than any exfoliation treatment ever.
5> Amazing ingredient list.
6> Does not aggravate my sensitive skin if used on alternate nights.
Cons of the Drunk Elephant T.L.C Framboos Glycolic Night Serum:
My Rating: 5/5!
Do I recommend the Drunk Elephant T.L.C Framboos Glycolic Night Serum?
Drunk Elephant T.L.C Framboos Glycolic Night Serum is a lightweight very potent glycolic acid serum which refines & purges skin for very smooth & healthy skin without making it sensitive. I loveee this serum in spite of the high price & already have a back-up. Definitely recommended if you can get somebody to bring it for you!
