USE IT or LOSE IT: Drunk Elephant Skin Care Vitamin C Firma Serum review

This revolutionary serum [Dupes: Timeless Skincare C serum + Ferulic Acid – $24.95; Paula Choice C15 Super Booster – $48.00] evens skin tone, fights cellular UV damage, stimulates collagen synthesis and optimizes skin physiological activities of defense and cell regeneration. Drunk Elephant’s unique formulation enzymatically dissolves unwanted surface skin cells and provides intense hydration through the use of hyaluronate crosspolymer, which can easily penetrate the skin. The result is a noticeably diminished appearance of photodamage, replaced by incredible radiance and luminosity.

All components work together to firm and brighten skin while preventing and correcting photoaging.

How to use: Apply one pump after you use your moisturizer and let it blend into your skin.

1 out of 52 reviews on Amazon complained about having red and itchiness when using the product

The brand using marula oil. The ingredient is not the best one out there if you compared it with excellent non-fragrant plant oils, including coconut, jojoba, sunflower, and others who serve the same purpose and give more benefit as skin care ingredients.

The liquid of Drunk Elephant C firma will look like (in the picture) and the smell is same with vitamin C. If you ever drink C100. Inside of the liquid it contains Lactobacillus/Punica Granatum (Pomegranate) Fruit Ferment Extract, and other fruit ingredients that written below and you will notice once you opened the bottle that these fruits will have strong smell, the liquid is a bit condensed and the colour is mixed with orange and yellow (or maybe dark orange).

To be honest with all of you, I have a thought with the founder insisted that skin care product should be made by purely natural ingredients and fragrance-free.  This will be very costly, for real. This product is good but there are lots of brands that deliver more than Drunk Elephant C Firma and nowadays brands will prefer to use healthy and natural ingredients that are also fragrance-free for their customer. It’s because it is a ‘things’ nowadays. I feel that DE just ‘scream’ too much about it compared to other brands.

While reading up people comment on review site. I was quite surprised with the comment about their product and customer service. Some people complain about this brand blaming others skincare brands when the customer asking why the product is not serving any benefit to their skin?. The question is is the product Ineffective or is it really because of other skincare brands that the customer use on their skincare routine? as what they always say that the problem is because of other brands. Another theory is the brand just blabbing too much about how good their product because its natural?

Will I recommend this product? Yes.

Will I repurchase this product? No. Too pricey and there are lots of other brands that give much benefit to my skin with cheaper price.

Beauty tips:

If you are someone who has a problem with dark under eyes or eyelids or always exposes to the sun often. You wish to make your face glow with health. Try to use C serum and face oils. I recommend for you who have a dry and dull skin problem. You can purchase on travel size before you buy the actual size. To allow you to know if your skin suitable to use the product or not.

Experience buying with

Take 2 weeks to reach Singapore. Some of the Drunk Elephant skin care products are available on Amazon but cannot be shipped in Singapore, the only items that can be purchased and delivered to Singapore are C firma serum
