Drunk ElephantA-Passioni Retinol Cream ($74) sounds very, very exciting! A 1% Retinol that acts to improve skin’s texture while diminishing fine lines and wrinkles, this powerful treatment contains Vitamin F which contains a blend of oils and lipids that protect against skin against environmental stressors.
Right now, this is pretty much the product that’s on every beauty editor’s lips and being promoted heavily across social media. It sounds like a dream come true for sure. A 1% Retinol is a very powerful solution to treat aging and the promise of restoring your skin’s tone and erasing sue damage as well as treating finer lines definitely will draw in a lot of skincare junkies in.
I’ll be the first to admit that I’m intrigued. I don’t use retinol as of yet but it’s probably about time I start doing so!
But I gotta admit I’m skeptical. Drunk Elephant is a hit or miss situation for me, mostly misses if I’m honest! But what really has me smirking every so slightly is the fact this launched on Sephora’s website about two days ago (maybe less) and it already has several five star reviews. Most reviews state they used the product a week as they were able to purchase it in store a week before launch. I admit, I might be sitting here smirking a little bit as can I trust these reviews. Are these real reviews? Also, if they are real, can I trust someone who only used the product a mere week? It’s a a slippery slope here and I think I have to buy it and try it myself versus relying on all these raving reviews I’m seeing….!
What do you think?
Is Drunk Elephant A-Passioni Retinol Cream all that and the bag of chips they promise us?
Or am I setting myself up for another fail from the brand?
