However, on my sensitive skin, this serum felt replenishing. & that’s saying something — I’m big on serums, especially leaning on the super-picky side.

Drunk Elephant’s C-Firma Fresh Day Serum requires you lớn mix it before its first use. Why? Doing so yourself maximizes the potency of the included ingredients while keeping the formula fresh. There’s truly no other product lượt thích it on the market.

It’s also miễn phí of colorants, essential oils, fragrance and silicones, making it a Clean at Sephora product.

How does Drunk Elephant’s C-Firma Fresh Day Serum work?

Thank God for instructions inside the box. When my new serum arrived in the mail, I didn’t know mixing was required at first. I took out the tall, rectangular bottle along with the mini serum lớn match. Then, it was time to lớn combine my fresher-than-ever serum.

The freshest serum I’ve ever used.

Our review of Drunk Elephant’s C-Firma Fresh Day Serum

Truth be told, I’ve never purchased a sản phẩm from Drunk Elephant. I’ve only ever used a mini freebie (thanks Sephora points) or my sister’s every now và then. Although the $78 price point is steep for some, it’s worth it because dermatologists advise using a serum twice daily.

How Drunk Elephant’s new serum compares lớn others

I’ve tried many serums. In fact, they’re all in a neat row on top of my bathroom counter, on a stringent rotation system, as if I’m drafting for the army. Some of my favorites include the Alypn Beauty Wild Nettle & Niacinamide Firming Serum for a tightening feel, Caudalie’s Vinopure Natural Salicylic Acid Pore Minimizing Serum for an ultra-hydrating option và three, budget-friendly bottles from The Ordinary.

Though Drunk Elephant’s C-Firma Fresh Day Serum is the most luxe serum in my collection thus far, it’s worth the hype because of its fresh, vitamin C infusion that feels lượt thích a million bucks.

The Pros

For full transparency, there are certainly more pros than cons. Besides the healthful concoction of ingredients, it didn’t cause any breakouts, which typically is the case when I try new skincare products. Not khổng lồ mention, the areas of my face that tend khổng lồ be the dryest — my jaw, around my nose & the center of my chin — were completely hydrated.

Drunk Elephant’s new serum made my skin so smooth, you couldn’t even tell my skin was dry in the first place.

A nice touch is its packaging, too. Though what’s on the inside matters (cheesy, I know), skincare products with pumps is a no-no for me. I want my skincare formulations khổng lồ be almost vacuum-sealed so it doesn’t contaminate as easily, và the twist-down mechanism — characteristic of most of the brand’s products — is exquisite.

The Cons

Truthfully, the only bé on my danh mục is the learning curve. Because Drunk Elephant’s new serum requires mixing, it took a bit more patience on my kết thúc to carefully remove what the included mini pamphlet instructed, without breaking the whole thing.

After about five minutes, I was good khổng lồ go.

That said, even though it’s not an untwist-and-apply serum, it’s worth the five-minute setup because you know you’re about khổng lồ use a fresh, chất lượng product.

The bottom line
