I was so grateful to Drunk Elephant for kick starting my Cruelty-Free Contest last winter, they donated an entire sampler basket of their top selling products to help the cause. And I am all about gratitude. I am so grateful to companies like Pinrose and Drunk Elephant, for not only spreading the word with their generous gifts, but truly LIVING the Cruelty-Free mission and incorporating healthier human ingredients in their products too! I was planning to re-visit a Cruelty-Free Contest for my Pinrose giveaway, but the winner came to me quite synchronously. This is where I hand over the writing reigns, and let her gratitude shine. 🌞

Dawn’s Drunken Story

“Believe what you’re reading in magazines and social media!

I’ve tried many a product with lil’ success. Then, when I saw my friend John’s skin glowing, of course I asked what his secret was. He told me Drunk Elephant. So, we made a deal. When I was done using up my “other” products, I would go full force with Drunk Elephant and document it.

I’m really excited to see how my skin improves. I will also use this regimen on my décolleté.”

D R U N K E L E P H A N T Diary 12/26/17

John suggested this regimen & I️ will follow it to the tee:

Day = 2 pumps C-Firma + 1 Pump B-Hydra + 1 Pump Lala (or 3 drops Marula)

Night = 2 pumps TLC + 1 Pump B-Hydra + 1 Pump Lala (or 3 drops Marula)

Then once a week, 4 Pumps Baby facial on dry, clean skin…leave for 20 minutes, rinse thoroughly and apply Marula Oil. He said it was like magic and again, he is right.

12/17/17: Day 1 selfie at 12noon, no make-up and in natural light. Did the “day regimen”.

12/18/17: Day 2. Last night I did the once a week 4 Pumps Baby facial on dry, clean skin…and left it for 20 minutes, rinsed thoroughly and applied Marula Oil.

When I washed my face this morning, my skin felt so good! I did my morning DE ritual and added my sunscreen.

12/21/17: I received a compliment from a girlfriend about how great my skin looks…..she does not know I’m using DE. 🙊

12/26/17: I’ve done the mask once. I missed 12/24 because of the holiday, so I will do it tonight.

01/08/18: Sunday night I did my Baby facial and Marula Oil.

Took this photo on Monday 01/09/18 – it’s raining today. Each photo is sans make up.

01/14/18: Sunday night, I did my Baby facial and Marula Oil.

01/26/18: The “crepey” skin on my neck has gone away. This morning, as I was feeling my neck, I was in disbelief. Hallelujah! 🙏

01/29/18: Monday in Maui so, I did my Baby facial at 6:45pm and will take a photo next Sunday. I don’t have my pink robe or white head band and I want all photos to be the same. So far this weather, and the holiday in Maui, is good for my skin.

02/04/18: I did my Baby facial at 7:30pm, then followed up with Marula Oil. Will take the picture tomorrow.

02/05/18: I took my updated photo:

I try to take my photos consistently, in the early afternoon, each time.

02/06/18: I cannot believe my pores! They aren’t tiny yet, BUT, they are SMALLER!! So grateful to “the elephant”.

02/12/18: 1:00pm, applied Baby facial for the week. I learned today that I am only supposed to use Beste soap once a day, and it should be at night. I’ve been using it morning and night. 🤭 Will change my regimen tomorrow morning.

02/15/18: Pekee Bar!!! What a concept! Wash your hair with a soap bar?!? 😲 It WORKS. Incredible. This is another situation where I need to finish my “old” shampoo before completely committing to Pekee for my hair.

02/18/18: Turned out to be a busy day, so I did not do my Baby facial. 😫

02/25/18: BABYFACIAL day. I missed last week so I’m extra excited for today’s facial.

03/11/18: I ran out of C-Firma on 02/26 (I just placed my order for more…it’ll be two weeks with no C-Firma 😢 It IS amazing the difference it makes. (See photo from today versus photo from 02/05).

Another thing I realized is, for the last month, I have forgotten the Marula Oil after the Baby facial. I use Marula Oil at least once per week after the evening regimen. So today, I remembered 💡Baby facial THEN Marula Oil 👍Today’s photo reflects Baby facial and Marula Oil. (Side note – When I heard about Protini, I added that to my regimen).

03/23/18: Going out of town so I did my Baby facial today. I bought and will be using my “Littles” on vacation.

03/29/18: Home from Nashville and using my Baby facial to get my skin back to clear, clean and smooth.

04/21/18: Gosh. I didn’t realize I’ve been absent from keeping my log. I’ve been on point for my DE regimen, including my baby-facial 1 time a week. I actually did it two times in one week (with permission from my DE expert John 👨‍🔬) and I just love how Baby facial smooths everything out from color to texture.

04/23/18: Another compliment from my girlfriend who is ALL ABOUT skin care…she told me my skin looks great. 😊

05/08/18: Had company the last two weekends and forgot to document my DE Baby facial. But I have been given the go ahead to use Baby facial twice a week if I’d like. 🤗

Dawn’s Drunken Lesson

I appreciate the fact that I am using products that are “good” for my skin. I am all about health. (WorkingYourBody.com & FengShuiByDawn.com)

So, everywhere I can, I want to use and take in the best ingredients. Since the skin is the largest organ in our body, I feel it is important to have a well-planned care regimen to treat it well.

My pore size has reduced, and the color of my skin is more vibrant than ever before. I feel comfortable leaving the house without a “base” cover up. I just LOVE the way my skin feels and looks.

All in all, so grateful for a new, HEALTHY product for my skin and the results it has given me. I am a Drunk Elephant fan for life!!!

In health and chi,
Dawn
