Drunk Elephant: The Littles 4.0!

Before I purchased The Littles from Drunk Elephant, I had only tried two of their products. The Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil and the C-Firma Day Serum. I had loved the Facial Oil and only liked the Day Serum (it was sticky and had a smell I wasn’t used to. After using a couple of times, I liked how my skin felt but not how I had to apply it). When I saw that there was a value set available on Sephora where I would be able to try a bunch of their products for a fraction of the price, I was in. This multi-product set comes in at $90, but the true value is $126. Plus, Sephora has now added a deal where they will let VIB and Rouge members redeem 500 points for $10 off their purchase.

What’s in the Box?

  • Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser
  • Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil
  • C-Firma Day Serum
  • B-Hyrda Intensive Hyrdation Serum
  • Protini Polypeptide Cream
  • Umbra Sheer Physical Daily Defense SPF 30 Broad Spectrum Sunscreen
  • T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Night Serum
  • C-Tango Multivitamin Eye Cream
  • Jelly Travel Bag

One of my favorite things about this is the packaging! It really surprised me when I opened it was that they have skincare routines for AM and PM on the sides of the packaging. There are four total routines, two for the morning and two for the nighttime. Drunk Elephant called them “Smoothies” for their structured skincare routines.

I love that there were four different structured routines included. So far, I like the Sleeping Beauty Smoothie PM routine the best. The T.L.C. Framboos gel has a bit of a kick to it and my skin is always super soft in the morning. I’ve noticed that my skin has more glow after using these different products every day or so for a week and a half. Here are some of my final thoughts on the products!

Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser

I was pleasantly surprised with how much I liked this cleanser. It smells great, which is always a plus, and it removed the residual makeup I had missed when I removed my makeup from the day. The cap is a fun twist cap so I don’t have to take the entire thing off to be able to use it. I think I would buy the full-size product which you can find here for $32.

Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil

It’s no secret that I am a fan of this one! I bought the full-sized product during the April sale and have been using it ever since. The facial oil is really great because it’s so hydrating for the skin. I always put it on at night when my skin is a bit on the drier side and wake up to refreshed skin. You can find it on Sephora right here!

C-Firma Day Serum

I received a sample of this product back in the beginning of May and have used it a few times. I think it has a strange smell, but my skin is always firm after using it. I would give it three out of five stars because it’s extremely tacky and sticky when I try to apply it. The full-sized product retails for $80, which is on the more expensive side of Drunk Elephant items. I don’t believe it to be worth that price, but am glad for the opportunity to try it in this kit.

B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum

I wasn’t impressed with this product, but I didn’t hate it. It did the job and my skin was hydrated after, but in all honesty this could have been because of other steps in the skincare routine. I would give this 3.5 stars out of five because it worked but wasn’t over the top amazing compared to other Drunk Elephant products I’ve tried. You can find it on Sephora right here for $48.

Protini Polypeptide Cream

This product was amazing. I was surprised by how much it worked and how much I loved it. My skin was hydrated as hell after using and it became my favorite product within the kit. I would 100% buy the full product because it’s much larger and it will last for a very long time. I highly, highly, highly recommend trying this out! The full size comes in at $68 for 1.69 oz (50mL). If you want to try it but don’t want to buy the entire Littles kit or the full product, there is an option in the Nice to Meet You kit which comes with the mini Protini Polypeptide Cream and Slaai Makeup-Melting Butter Cleanser and Bamboo Booster for $22 right here. I recommend it!

Umbra Sheer Physical Daily Defense SPF 30 Broad Spectrum Sunscreen

I wanted so badly to enjoy this product. I love sunscreen and have a lot of value in finding good sun care. When I tried it, it didn’t have any white-cast, which was a plus, but it was stickier than I thought it would be and felt like a barrier between my skin and the air around my face. When I was in the sun, I felt sweat building under the layer of sunscreen and not being able to get past it. This could block my pores and increase the chance for acne, which is never the move. I wanted to like this sunscreen and gave it a couple of chances, but it didn’t work for me. You can find the full product here for $36 for 3oz.

C-Tango Multivitamin Eye Cream

This product I would give four out of five stars. I liked the feel of it and I felt like it did help my eye area. The full product can be found right here for $64. I wouldn’t buy the full product immediately, but as I use the eye cream more and more, I can warm up to the idea of buying it. Overall, it’s pretty good, I have no complaints!

Sephora.com

My final say on the entire thing is that this is a wonderful way to try different products from a more affordable price point. For $90 (or 80, if you use the VIB/Rouge route or even less if you get it during a sale), you can try nine of Drunk Elephant’s most popular products. There’s a good amount of product in each of the items and it’s going to last for a long time. If you’re traveling and a fan of the brand, this is a good travel set to have as well! The jelly travel bag is perfect for keeping everything organized.

My favorite products of the kit are the following: the Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser, the T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Night Serum, Virgin Marula Facial Oil, and Protini Polypeptide Cream. I would buy all of the full-sized products in a heartbeat (but during a sale, of course!). I’m glad that I got The Littles because I had the opportunity to try a bunch of different products that I genuinely enjoy. I think it’s the best way to try new products.

Thank you so much for reading! Have you used Drunk Elephant before? Do you want to? Let me know down in the comments! I have put so much research into fining the best skincare products possible for me and my skin and this was a part of the journey. Stay tuned for more!

Love,
